    Unfortunately you are still in that trance stage over the Obama rhetoric. Too bad you weren't one of those awakened on Nov. 2, 2010.
    you sir, are the very last one on this forum who should ever tell someone that they are out of their league, you would do well to keep that in mind....your opinion isnt the only one that matters, your opinion doesnt make you right...it is what it is, an opinion. again, something you should probably keep in mind.

    [QUOTE=Lord Tammerlain;1059140758]Where did I say that?
    tax revenues can go up with tax increases, or they can go down, tax revenues can go up with tax cuts, or they can go down with tax cuts. It is entirely dependant on the what is occuring in the wider economy. Small tax increases or cuts will have minor effects either way.



    Currently the US government has a trillion dollar deficit, tax cuts are not going to solve that. A combination of tax increases and spending cuts are going to be required to eliminate the deficit. Thankfully I have an education and not some piece of paper from Coconut College. Try to think critically about all factors that effect the economy rather some narrow set of stats and you will be far better served by your "vast" knowledge
    How will increasing taxes put 16 million people back to work and paying taxes?

    i strongly agree

    none of our opinions amounts to more than a click-and-submit in some meaningless forum

    the opinions that matter are all in washington

    and the deal is done

    sorry

    it won't but it might make some of those who have been collecting unemployment for close to two years vote for the dems because "they care about Me" and they want to punish those who are doing well when I am not.

    And lastly, as for Republicans being evil .... better get some silver bullets and some wooden stakes ........ and be very afraid ... BOO !
    Please note that when Reagan was president our country had manufacturing jobs available which have since gone bye, bye.

    In reality, most of us who oppose forced income redistribution are not only in favor of private charity, we tend to support it at much higher rates than similarly situated democrats or welfare socialists.

    Nothing is more greedy and self centered than demanding others contribute at the point of a gun while you do not.
    hey, i'm all for charity, contribute myself, but you do know that many charities are struggling to meet the demand for their services, right?? i'm so tired of people on here, mostly from the right , accusing those who are unemployed , of being 'lazy, no good, pieces of ^^^^, who don't want to work, but on the other hand, screaming about the lack of jobs, AND THEN wanting to cut these people off from unemployment...can you turtle, can you promise me that the charities in this country can meet the demand for aid? can you? no, you can't. can they meet the need long term? again, no they can't. i've no problem with my government helping out those in need...is it abused by some? sure is..by all, no, no it isnt. in hard times this country is supposed to pull together, help each other out, not say to your neighbor, 'sorry, but i guess your just sh^^ outta luck'. that is a piss poor attitude to have, and when you are more concerned about having a few more dollars in your pocket than you are about your fellow citizens, that is a sad commentary on where this country is heading, and what this country is becoming. its not a left or right thing turtle, its about giving a f### about your fellow Americans....when you care more about a few extra bills in your wallet than you do about your fellow americans, that is piss poor.

    How will raising taxes on the top 2% put 16 million Americans back to work and back paying their full taxes? Noticed that you are still hung up on Reagan in an attempt to divert from the disaster in the WH. Where is that Middle Class tax cut democrats are talking about? My bet it is in the same place the Clinton promise was for a middle class tax cut since you want to review history.
