Can't believe I have to explain this.
I could go dig up a Krauthammer op-ed or something from the WSJ that would say the exact opposite, but given that op-eds aren't evidence of anything, I think I'll pass.
Another substantive response. You've certainly proved your point.Weren't you paying attention during the midterm elections?
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
did you hear what senators webb, feingold, nelson, lieberman and manchin said?

Now it is 2008-2010 and you haven't had a pay increase since 2003. The pay increase is still there but is eaten up by increased costs, i.e. healthcare, potential for higher taxes, state tax changes. How many years between your last pay increase? You really expect a tax increase in 2003 to offset the cost increases that occurred in 2008-2010 and businesses to create jobs with that pay increase from 2003? Now, your President is going to take that pay raise away from you and as a business owner would you be doing any more hiring?
How many jobs will be created by increasing the taxes on the top 2%? If you are going to take tax cuts aways since they didn't do any good, then remove them all including yours?
