    Re: Volcker: Taxes likely to rise eventually to tame deficit

    But..... the hope and change Obama promised us no new taxes for anyone making under 250k
    Hope.
    Change.
    Unity.

    Three words that will forever be ridiculed.
    Three words owned by the biggest failure we've had at the helm.
    Three words that will dovetail into Tax and Spend Liberals (Radicals).

    How's your Hope and Change working for ya?
    And in the words of The Carpenter's... We've only just begun...

    For all the hype about how brilliant Obama is he's done everything wrong from the minute he took office and is going to drive this Country into the toilet of time if he and his radical cabal of idiots are not stopped before he gets his way and we end up in a DEPRESSION of monumental proportions that will make stock market crash of 1929 look like a birthday party.

    He is not going to just wreck our economy the whole world's economies are at stake.

    This man and those who support him seem brain dead to reality.
    The last amateur administration caused the mess. It amazes me how soon some have forgotten that.
    Obama has cut taxes and increased tax credits, so far. That along with decreased revenue due to the recession that began three years ago and stimulus money has led to record deficits.
    This depression/recession started in 2007.
    In your mind what was Obama supposed to do to end Bush's recession?

    Bush wrecked our economy. Remember?

    There is nothing wrong with tax and spend, as long as the money spent is reasonably close to money gathered in taxes.
    It is when we borrow and spend that we get into trouble, just like in family finances....

    There is plenty wrong with taking the money of the few to spend it on the wants of the many when the many aren't paying for the spending

    My BS detector is redlining with this nonsense.

    what wrecked the economy goes back to the decision to ignore the limits placed on the federal government by the constitution which in turn started a fast breeder machine for dependent freeloaders.

    ie the New Deal and Great Society

    Now that is BS. Since the New Deal and Great Society the US has become the most powerful and prosperous nation on earth with one of the highest standards of living on the planet. The spiral downward started when we became the world police and first stuck our nose into the civil war in Vietnam.
