    I've already told you, the negative growth is attributed to the abnormal weather by basically all economists.

    Love it especially how individuals keeping more of what they earn is an expense to the Federal Govt. says a lot about liberalism. Isn't it amazing how liberals are so able to predict what would happen without the tax cuts and ignore what actually did happen with govt. revenue, job creation, as well as economic growth? Liberals are good at making wild predictions but not so good in viewing actual results.

    Oh, and the Bush tax cuts did primarily benefit the rich.

    Ending Bush tax cuts for rich would save about $28 billion in 2013, analysts say.

    Those tax cuts WERE ended. Whats the "cost" of the rest of those tax cuts by the way, the middle class part?

    Why don't you post them? I can't search for what you're talking about. The only thing I can think of are people that were emotional when the first black president was elected...and that has nothing to do with him being a messiah and everything to do with a historic moment.

    Aw, no question about it, strong economic growth has been stifled by poor weather for the last 6 1/2 years. It is incredible how it is never economic policies by Obama that had no affect on the economic results but rather the weather. We all know that the Keystone pipeline, attacks on the coal industry, Obamacare, class warfare, higher taxes, 20 million unemployed, under employed, discouraged workers are all Bush's fault or the weather.

    Seeing as how a democrat congress, Senate, and President made those tax cuts permanent, when does the chart get changed to "obama era tax cuts"?

    Sure you can... It's called google, and just type Obama halo, and then look under pictures. Here I'll help you

    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Good question, how about it, Obama supporters? Or are tax cuts good now that Obama has extended them?

    If Obama has been so bad for business why have corporations been experiencing record profits? It's obviously not a supply side problem with over taxed firms barely getting by. In fact its the complete opposite. Do you think giving corporations more tax breaks and giving them an "attaboy" will make them start hiring?

    Wow...I tried "Bush Halo" and got pretty much the same types of pictures.
