    If you think it is as simplistic as, "It's all Bush's fault," you are misinformed, Disney. This mess started during Clinton's presidency. Thanks for the tip. Just seems like a waste of space to pick up a whole quote. But maybe I'll start doing that.

    You don't have to use the whole quote...you can edit out whatever part you want.

    Take a look at the economic indicators. They are almost all moving in the right direction...albeit slowly. Stopping the decline and making small gains...I would call that progress....you don't?

    There is no legitimate reason to extend these tax breaks. Let them die!

    it sure isn't because the government refuses to loot the most productive tax payers a bit more either

    of course not-to a socialist or someone who constantly whines about the rich

    For those who understand economics and realize the rich already pay too much it makes perfect sense. I sure hope you don't have a rich boss who decides to lay you off when the tax hikes hit--because If I employed someone like you, you'd be the first to get fired as a cut back
