    Like they gave a dam when the tax cuts increased the debt.. or like they still dogmatically insist on tax cuts for the ultra rich who don't even want it.. even in face of the growing debt. Just partisan idiocy. A reduced federal budget equals the libertarian utopian dream surely a delusional one considering your economy is in recession ... never mind that recession/depression was cause be deregulatory practices.. another libertarian tenet. You sure your conservative? or is that libertarian?

    You must be rather poorly compensated if you think 200K is ultra rich

    because that is the starting point for the clinton tax hikes and for where Obama started his class warfare talk

    I asked a direct question, expecting a direct answer. I got a sidestep. I really don't need to 'understand' any more than that.

    asking a student a question helps him learn on his own. Its called the socratic method. I am a master of it. Perhaps you have heard of it?

    Compensated? Whatever are you talking about? No at my income would take years to produce 200k and if you consider the cost of living .. 200k is nearly impossible to save.

    Do you not understand that banks give people loans to buy houses, start small businesses ect?

    Obama is targeting those earning (not saving, not accumulating) but merely earning 200K a year. His tax hikes aren't designed to hit the uber wealthy (someone making over say 10 Million a year) but just those who make a decent income. ie people who are about 100K above the level of paying as much in taxes as they receive in benefits (about 117 K a year now)

    Why do the dems refuse to honor the pay go law they passed? Why are the dems right raising the debt and the GOP wrong when they want to be responsible and pay for it? There is plenty of tarp money to pay for it.

    How nice you want to avoid the issue and go back to Bush. History is not the issue here how we and when we pay for this is
