    Obama tells you he wants to give 95% of all American's a tax cut, yet Cap and Trade, Obama Care and the CO2 Regulations will increase taxes, regulations and costs for All Americans. How can you believe the 95% number again?

    No he didn't. Roosevelt extended the Depression. Nice try Dan, but no.

    Mr. President, the truth is that your belief that Congress can revive the economy through Gov't programs and spending is misguided and detrimental to the country.

    The fastest way to rebound the economy, is to get out of the way sir. That means sweeping tax cuts to spur growth, repealing Obamacare, shelving "Cap and Trade", stopping the EPA's power grab to control CO2... basically it means abandoning most everything your Administration has promoted to this point. Because the economic uncertainty your policies have induced, business cannot grow.
    So "get out of the way" means actively doing stuff to help the economy.

    How do you help the economy Redress? That's the fundamental difference between right and left, liberal and conservative. President Obama is a Progressive minded fellow who believes that an economy like ours can best be stimulated with Gov't funding, Gov't Direction, with laws and decrees from Washington. On the other side are those that say Washington IS the problem, and needs to let the system do what it naturally tends towards, and that is profitable wealth generation. Onerous Regulation, Decrees from Washington, new Taxes and Fees, these are the antithesis to profit. Is it a wonder this "Summer of Recovery" is anything but?

    Please explain how Obama wants to lower Federal taxes on 95% of the people when only 53% actually pay Federal tax. Just goes to basic honesty.

    I recommend the Reagan model. A combination of spending and tax cuts. Oh wait...that is what Obama has done too.

    95% of 53% is 50.35%, enough to get re-elected....

    Most of the extra spending during Reagan's term was due to the Democrats who controlled Congress, just like most of the rolled back spending during Clinton's term was due to the Republican's in Congress.
