    Re: Obama to call for new tax increases in State of the Union address

    Didn't bother to watch the State of the Union address last night but knew that Obama would be taking credit for that which he didn't do or generate results that are out of context but still motivate his liberal base. Found the following as a pretty good analysis of the speech and claims

    FACT CHECK: Obama claims credit for an incomplete recovery | Fox News

    Isn't it amazing how we have created a record number of jobs according to the media and Obama but the numbers compared to when the recession began tell a different story which only goes to show you can take any moment in time to show the results you want to show when the real issue is why did people vote for Obama in the first place

    There is no established link between tax cuts for anyone and increases in government revenue.

    Nope. Borrowing is not an issue.

    Let's here it Obama supporters how does taxing the rich benefit the U.S. economy and how much money is going to be generated to fund the liberal spending appetite?

    Class warfare is never going to solve the problems we face in this country and what ever happened to incentive to create more upper class individuals? Growing up I always strove to generate enough money to pay for a family that I hoped to have and fund charities that I want to support. My education process taught me the value of hard work and the desire to succeed. What happened to that philosophy in today's world? Why is it the Federal Government's role to tell the private sector where to spend its own money and on what?
    It shouldn't just be on the rich, but with the way that the last few administrations have spent, we probably do need to raise taxes to pay for what we bought.

    Should probably quit spending so much too, but forever war ain't cheap.

    Another liberal who doesn't understand economic activity and the benefits of people keeping more of what they earn. Tax cuts have only occurred, real tax cuts(not rebates) have only occurred 3 times since the 60's, JFK, Reagan, and GW Bush. All three got incredible economic activity and grew govt. revenue. Liberals want to ignore that. If tax cuts were bad how did govt. revenue grow? You think the 17 million unemployed/under employed/discouraged workers are paying much in FIT?

    No, what we need to do is what Obama promised, go through the budget line by line cutting out waste, fraud, duplication and prosecuting abuse. The Attack on the WTC cost the Treasury over a trillion dollars, one incident. We paid for it and that is included in the Bush debt

    I did say we should cut spending. We should. But forever war ain't cheap. This form of interventionism we run against our Peoe and other nations, it costs a lot of money.
