    Maybe I missed the controversy on this forum. Where is it?

    What other Democrats push the trickle down economic theory that he's countering?

    You might want to ask all the mega-rich GOP farmers in the House who gave themselves multi-million dollar tax breaks in the latest Farm bill.
    Oh wait, I can't get that link since this information will never be released.

    Just as we'll never see the current tens of millions being spent on lawyers to sue the President.
    Nor the tens of millions on I$$A committees.
    Sue Obama for one thing yet yell at him for not doing the exact same thing on Immigration reform before the election .
    A guy just can't make this stuff up .

    I don't agree that a counter steer after three decades of the trickle down experiment guarantees disaster.
    It's not really an opinion question, as in mine versus yours. It's just cold, hard math. Just look at the projected unfunded liabilities that this government has rung up and I don't know how anyone would vote for someone that would spend even more. And to think that we can just raise taxes, as if they aren't high enough already, to cover those Trillions of dollars is just a mathematical impossibility.

    And as an aside, are we just working to give the fruits of our labors to the government? When you add State, sales, federal, fees, etc... into what you pay for things, we are already giving up half of our earnings, maybe more, to the government. I thought this country was founded on individual liberties, and not being a slave to the government.

    All of them.
    Dems were all against trickle-down, which Sen. Bob Dole would later say was his greatest mistake as Senate Majority Leader in 1983.
    Tax cuts that have led to this $17.5 Trillion Dollar monster .

    You never said you didn't either.
    I was certainly correct to point out how you Cons/LRs are fawning all over a Bernie Sanders thread.

    Just as I get smacked around for defending all the low blows Obama takes .

    In NH I can vote for either party too.
    Out here in fly-over country, I would say that Romney and Huckabee are running one--two.
    The rest just provide me daily amusement .

    Incorrect. I've said many times that I would never vote for Sanders.
