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.
The energy spent on this topic is disproportionate to its potential impact.
I may be wrong.
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.

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

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.“Its dishonesty in your attempt to seemingly imply that somehow Cheney alone caused this to occur?
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
