    Wow ! You are still here ! If I didn't know better, I would say that you are just some punk troll with little intellect and a complete lack of ability to bring anything to the conversation except to post drivel over ... and over ... and over ...

    I hope you are not the typical modern liberal. Has our school system failed that badly ?

Very interesting and still trying to figure out how allowing people to keep more of what they earn is an expense to the govt? Is that Canadian economics? Seems to me with all those liberal elites in this Administration they would be able to figure out how much lost revenue they would get because of tax cuts and cut spending accordingly? I know you can explain to me where I am wrong.

    Just don't keep up with the news, eh?
    The fact that Greenspan said something (that doesn't actually support your claim) wasn't what I was asking for evidence to support. I was asking for evidence to support the much broader and much dumber arguments that:

    1) Reaganomics was obviously the cause of our current crisis, and
    2) Democrats "didn't fix" the economy because they were worrying about populists.

    But jobs are your big issue and as you have been given jobs were created. 6.5 million during the Bush years. Obama has a net loss of 4 million so raising taxes on the top 2% must be the answer. How many will be created by raising taxes?

    "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.
    Orszag calls for tax cut extension in news column - Sep. 7, 2010

    Was I talking about the present?

    The tax cuts are set to expire now for all income groups for the next year correct? That will mean higher government revenues, and should the Republican congress, (who controls the purse strings according to many of your posts) does not go on a drunken sailor spending binge should result in the deficit decreasing. I think that would be a good thing dont you
