    Re: More Democrats break with Obama on tax cuts

    It's called seeing the writing on the walls.

    Geez, it seems the Dems see the tidal wave clearer than the establishment GOP.

    We're pissed. Americans, even though they likely don't know the term "Keynesian" economics, understand inherently that you can't spend your way out of debt. I mean, you can't do that in your personal life, so how in the world could a government do it? Both Democrats and Republicans are using this approach, and people are sick of it.

    Thus, the momentum of the non-establishment movement of fiscal conservatism, tighter immigration standards, and traditional American values.

    I love that both sides are scared out of their minds. Even if the Republicans take over both houses, they aren't safe either. Voters are kicking ass and taking names.

    And just how much is enough?

    Geez, they already employ the country. Without these wealthy people, we'd be living in the Congo.

    This is what is wrong with America. Reducing all economics to the most retarded denominator. Obviously what does not work on the level of the individual wouldn't work on the level of giant economies simply because a sound byte says so.

    Wrong... the vast majority in this country are employed by small business owners who don't make over 250k a year and by governmental agencies. Try again.

    The facts are if we continue these tax cuts we will be living in the Congo. The Bush tax cuts have been in effect for almost 10 years and look where it has gotten us.

    On Pelosi...

    that is nonsense. 47% pay nothing to the services funded by income tax yet use plenty of them

    for them its free and for taxpayers up to about 117K a year in income, they pay less taxes than what they use.

    I am tired of representation without taxation and I am tired of wealth stealers whining that those who work hard and smart need to carry the load of the slackers
