But this thief in the WH is hammering everyone at every turn.....READ THEIR BILLS!

    I don't agree with your generalization. There was a study linked here a while back that showed tax cuts had no effect on jobs. So, with no effect, and the need to bring the deficit down, it seems to me going back to the previous tax rate is not a serious burden.

    And j, you really do just drink too much of the kool aid. I know this sounds like an attack, but this type of exaggerated ahtred is really a problem. There is no theft going on. None of the silliness the becks and hannities and American thinker promote is real. it just saddens me to see so many eating this up.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    That depends on who's money you think we are talking about here.

    No, it really doesn't. Not at all.

    Had the same problem with the last preseident, and the one before him and the one before him and the one before him. This debt didn't just start under Obama.

    Yes it does. Do you think that it is the "Government's" money? Or the Taxpayers?

    No but it sure exploded more so than under any other President, or all of them combined.

    No, not really. That's just the spin being placed on it.

    We are the government j. We elected representatives. We have a voice. No theft is involved.

    either you are naive or you are expecting me to be with this crap.

    Your non representing representatives don't think so, that is why you demo's lost.
