    Agreed regarding the Democrats. What upsets me are the deficit spending Republicans. Which the last 4 were. Where are my conservative reps. . .

    Lets see how the latest batch of dreamers works out. Maybe the tea party guys can pull a rabbit out of a hat.

There is no guarantee that money will even get to the govt. or if it does get that it will reduce the deficit by 70 billion. As you aptly stated, Democrats need the money to buy votes.
    Dont go blaming the Dems. Republicans do it too. President Bush raised the deficit by 4-5 trillion.

    it makes sense politically 47 deadbeats out vote 1 tax payer every time even if the latter pays more taxes than all 47 put together

    you sure spend alot of time trying to justify tax hikes which is far different than saying they might happen but they are bad

    President Bush had a lot of help, most of that debt was created from 2007-2008 with a Democrat Congress. TARP was part of that debt but most of TARP has been paid back so where did the money go? 9/11 acccording to GAO cost a trillion dollars.

    Obama and the Democrat Congress has added 3 trillion in two years.

    because so many people keep saying "people are bad if they raise taxes" without realizing that today we have no other option to raise income. Wait until people realize that the new house plans to take away entitlements. You think people hate taxes going up wait until it takes money away from SS and medicare/medicade. Wonder how many would have gotten elected if they told people HOW they were going to balance the budget without raising taxes.

    yawn-cutting spending will be better. raising taxes without cutting spending is like bailing a cup of water out of a boat for every 10 gallons that comes rushing in.

    You are in favor of class warfare with your tax hike nonsense. I note you haven't called for letting all the tax cuts expire which at least would be intellectually honest.
