    do you think just because you are smart and intelligent you should have special priviledge under the American democratic system?

    see its easy!

    This was accomplished in spite of republicans in congress saying that the tax increase would only make matters worse.Kinda sounds like the same song, different verse doesn’t it?

    Yes, I believe that a tax rate of 39.6% that we had during the 1990'swould do the job.
    Apparently you failed to notice that an entirely new market was created in the 1990s, and the subsequent dot-com boom.

    It was called the internet. One of your heroes, Al Gore, claims to have created it right before he saved us all from global warming.

    Taxes rates had NOTHING to do with the good times of the 90s. If anything, they kept it from being better.

    The government wastes the money we give them, just like they would with tax increases now. That money would not go to the debt anyway, it would line the pockets of more foreign banks and butt-buddy companies to Obama. Just like the stimulus money did.

    That plus the fact that taxes were cut by the Republican Congress in 1997 which of course Donc and others want to ignore. Why people like Donc continue to buy the rhetoric of liberals is beyond me. Seems that far too many buy rhetoric that they want to believe and ignore actual facts.

    When you looked at the personal financial positions of most liberals, it becomes pretty clear. They'll charge lunch at Chilli's to the VISA so they have enough cash to make the minimum monthly payment on the same card.

Why do some continue to buy the rhetoric from this Administration and believe that higher taxes on 2% of the population is going to increase revenue to the govt. to make a dent in the current year's deficit? Now liberals want to extend unemployment benefits for another year on top of the 2 years now which adds to the deficit and still not receive Federal Income tax revenue fro 47% of the public that don't pay any income taxes. So why the concern about 2% when the percentage not paying any income taxes is well over 50%. Wonder how people who don't pay any income taxes feel about increasing taxes on others?

    The thing is, this tax issue isn't going to have the much impact one way or another--at least not financially. It's a political issue that the parties are using to rile up their partisans. That's what it's all about, not about our country's financial situation, it's about our political situation.
    The energy spent on this topic is disproportionate to its potential impact.
    I may be wrong.

    Oh, yes it is, bigtime.

    I'm about to sell all my stock and funds if they don't extend the tax cuts. No way am I paying 20+ percent on my capital gains next year, when I can pay 15 percent now.

    If these cuts don't get extended in full by the 15th, you're going to see a massive stock sell-off, and the market will drop below 9,000 again.

    Hello, double-dip recession, and world-wide financial chaos.

    I guess in a sadistic but satisfying way it is small comfort to know that conservatives would do this knowing full well the international consequences of such a selfish action.

    Yep, shooter cast the deciding aye, after a tied 50-50 vote. Care to explain the leap you made when you said

    “Its dishonesty in your attempt to seemingly imply that somehow Cheney alone caused this to occur?
    Like I stated on another thread, over the life of the tax cuts the middle and the poor have seen their standard of living decline, while the top 1 percent (who own about forty percent of our countries wealth) have seen their standard of living go up.

    Lets take a look at the 2001 tax cut. The one percenters averaged $53,123 while the 60 percenters got (shafted) $347.Hhmm…don’t hardly look fair to these two bloodshot eyeballs.

    Kinda looks to me that some want to start some form of an autocracy in this country. Or am I just getting paranoid in my old age?
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say
