    Did you see his state of the union? Looks like he's trying. It's just that one group somehow thinks taxation is communism/socialism.
    Ted Cruz is the dumbest person alive.

    Taxation isn't communism and it's silly for you to say that anyone believes it is. Taxation is how we raise the revenue to pay for government spending. It's only when the government raises taxes on some to give more freestuff to others that it's socialism/communism. And what does Obama want to do? Raise taxes on just "the rich" so that he can promise more freestuff to the little libbies that sit there with their mouths open waiting for their next feeding of freestuff. It makes them chirp with excitement. No wonder his "approval rating" has been improving. He's giving his base what they want again, more promises of freestuff. I'm sure libs are absolutely giddy with joy and will stay that way until they realize that once again there's no football there when they go to kick it.

    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

It is about time for you and all other liberals to stop flapping your mouth about fairness and accept the reality that it is freedom to make mistakes and poor choices as well. It isn't the role of the Federal Govt. to solve those social problems, that role is with your state

    It is the Federal Government's role to protect equal opportunity NOT create equal outcome. What the top 1% controls is irrelevant to me as I control my own destiny as do you.
    Yes, and absolutely NOTHING has changed in the work environment since the 70s, lol. You're stuck looking at your own experiences, not seeing the complete irrelevance they have to today's realities.

    That's what you determined are free handouts. Roads are free services provided to you. Libraries are free services provided to you. Medicare has been a free service provided to you. Medicaid is a free service provided to you. Every dollar the government spends is going to help someone, so every one of those is a form of "socialism" under that idiotic, simple ideology.

    Having taxes at what almost any person would call a reasonable level is not a bad thing, it's not on the wrong side of the laffer curve, it isn't proven to spurn growth or limit revenue, and isn't socialism or communism.

    New Jersey locations by per capita income - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    If you read this:

    In 2012, 9.1% of New Jersey households have annual incomes of or over $200,000, and 17.5% have incomes of $100,000 or more. By contrast, 5.3% have incomes of less than $10,000, and 24.9% less than $34,999.[1]


    Simple observation shows that the majority of people in NJ fall between 34,999 and 100,000.


    In order to get 65% home ownership, don't you think most of the middle class would be homeowners?
    I'm Jersey? No. I'm sure the numbers are flubbed. They probably throw in private landlords as homeowners for the property they rent.

    The average pay in Jersey has to be higher because the taxes here are un-f'n-ing believable. The cost of living is high too. Purchasing power...what is that? And Jersey may become such a hellhole eventually that only the super rich or super poor could live here.

    Do you think there's a way to make the voters ignore the ads that feed them half truths and outright lies while appealing to emotions?
    Yes. Publicly funding political campaigns, with NO private funding.
