    education is not something the federal government ought to be screwing around with

    save for the military academies, FBI academy etc

    Republican war? You mean WWII, Korean War, WWI, Vietnam War?

    Now why would I turn down SS since I made "contributions" for 35 years?

    Were you taught that was the role of the Federal Govt? You seem really upset over the 100 billion a year spent on Afghanistan and Iraq Wars but not nearly as upset over the rest of the 3.5 trillion dollar budget, wonder why?

    good move, but it would really be great if we were able to see the truth behind people's postings. Those who whine that tax increases won't hurt the rich are almost always not rich. Same with those who say the rich can afford more tax hikes-it comes from the average taxpayer or the ultra wealthy.

    Income taxes fund the following

    International Affairs
    Gen. Science, Space
    Energy
    Natural resources/env
    Agriculture
    Commerce
    Transportation
    Community Dev
    Education/Train/Social
    Health
    Veterans Benefits
    Justice
    General Govt.
    Net Interest
    don't believe we specified what type of taxes...but, claim it as a 'victory' if you wish.

    obama's original budget director (who, along with ms romer and mr summers, the anti feminist, abandoned their former boss):

    "Over the medium term, the tax cuts are simply not affordable" but allowing the tax cuts to expire at the end of the year would "make an already stagnating jobs market worse," Orszag continued.

    It is indeed a victory since the topic of this thread is Middle Class tax cuts relating to Income taxes not use taxes. All you can do is try and divert to other use taxes to try and tie them all together in hopes of making yourself feel better. What you are showing however is something entirely different.
