There cetainly is a way to handle the debt, stop the spending. How much of the budget items here are duplicated at the state level. Why do you buy that this is a revenue problem and not a spending problem? Doesn't appear that you have a clue how our economy works. There is only one ideology that isn't concerned about what you make or get to keep, think about it.haymarket;1059114171]from Conservative
Because I have heard all the weeping and gnashing of teeth from the right wing and they have made a believer out of me. They have convinced me that we have to do something about our outrageous national debt and it is something we have to do now. I will stand up proudly and salute the flag and follow the wishes of the conservatives and support steps to reduce the debt and deficit by allowing the already negotiated tax rates to go back to pre-2001 levels as promised.

Do you understand what those other taxes are and what they fund? Think about it, when you drive a car you purchase gasoline and that price includes excise taxes which fund the roads, bridges, and other infrastructure. FICA funds SS and Medicare all which come back to the people, sales taxes fund state and local programs. Income taxes are supposed to fund the General Revenue of the U.S. and when 47% don't make any payments, where is your outrage?You, like some others here, seem to be hung up on only one tax - the income tax. The fact is that lower income people pay lots of taxes. And if you want my own personal opinion about the issue, I personally think that all people should pay taxes, even the poorest who only earns $100 a year. And they do through established taxes.
Let's see, Obama was in the Congress and campaigned for the job saying he had the answers. He took office in January 2009, the recession ended in June 2009 and yet today 17 months later we have higher unemployment than we had when he took office and unemployment each month of 2010 is higher on a month to monty basis than it was in 2009 the recession year. He has added 3 trillion to the debt and meager economic growth and 4 million lost jobs. Those are Obama results that you seem so proud of. How about those election results on Nov. 2. It does appear that the American people woke up. Still waiting for you to do the same thing. Results matter, you still buy the rhetoric.
try as I might, I just cannot summon up any. Sorry.where is your outrage?
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
