    Don't think Bush would have generated a stimulus program with targeted tax cuts and bailouts for supporters like unions. Don't think Bush would have implemented Obamacare and don't believe it would have taken 7 years to get back to pre recession job creation

    By not having money be an issue. Candidates don't need money, they need services.

    I blame BOTH. Big business is WHY we have these regulations.

    So yeah, I support TAXING the very people who's meddling in our government resulted in the NEED to mess with taxes in the first place. You don't think the people who run the corporations that are largely the ones responsible for the lobbyists who have created this monster are POOR, do you?

    I think most of us can agree with that one.

    But, the devil is in the details. How do you reduce the power of government when the power of wealth wants government to continue to increase? It's like tilting at windmills.

    Wrong, the onus is on you to prove your contention. if it were up to the other party to prove or disprove your speculation, no debate could happen.

    So who gets these "services" that we, the taxpayers are going to fund under your idea? How do we decide which ones we're going to spend money on or do you just figure it should be a free-for-all for everyone that thinks it would be an interesting diversion to throw their hat in the ring? Services = money.

    Are you kidding? You sound like a low info voter, now.

    He balanced the budget by increasing TAXES, only, like Obama with the AHCA, he was shrewd enough to NOT call them taxes, lol.

    He didn't create jobs, because it's not the role of government to create jobs, REMEMBER? PEOPLE with business plans created jobs. He just HAPPENED to be governor during a time of largess, in a state that is a bit more free than others, in the NE. Lucky him?

    A smart business person? He's road on the coattails of others his entire life. He wouldn't know what to do with a can opener if it opened it's mouth and gave him instructions.

    Same problem. Dole out campaign funding (or services) to everyone that runs? And why should my tax money support someone I despise? Why should my taxes support a campaign for president by someone like Michael Moore (or Hillary Clinton)? Do you want your tax money funding a run by Sarah Palin or the leader of the KKK, whoever that may be?

    In reality, I don't think it would be constitutional to prevent private funding of campaigns. The idea might sound great, but it's a non-starter just because of the constitutional issues, alone.
