    Your problem is that you don't understand the concept of trickle down.

    LOL It doesn't mean the wealthy will piss on us if we give them tax breaks? Since it never happened I don't really see why I should care about your "concept of trickle down". Most of us are worse off than when supply-side coddling began.

    We call it as we see it. Obamacare has caused many companies to hold onto much of their cash flow rather then paying through the noise for patently stupid Ponzi schemes like "Obamacare".

    LOL!!

    Okay. You go ahead and strive for your ideal. I'll continue to live in the real world.

    btw, what might seem to be ideal to you is against human nature. The only way you can achieve your ideal is by forcing it upon people. That seldom works. You might be better served by re-aligning your idea with reality. You'll piss less people off that way.

    Bush did not break it. Democrats like Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter, Barney Franks, Chris Dodd, etc did. When you learn how the history of the mortgage market, you will know who to blame.

    Sorry. I don't have the ability to access an .xls document. You'll have to come up with something else if you want to make your case.

    In any case, I hold anything from the whitehouse to be highly suspect. I'm sure you'll understand.
