    Supports it did not add it Obama and the democrats added it. All this pork is Obama bribing democrats. More debt we can not afford because the Democrats want to hold unemployment and the middle class hostage.

    Somehow raising taxes on the rich is going to put 16 million plus Americans back to work. Typical radical leftists whose ultimate goal is massive redistribution of wealth and their definition of social justice meaning complete power. What is frustrating is that most of the people who support the left agenda are going to be left out in the cold and don't realize it!

    As has been stated many times, we have a spending problem, not a revenue problem. Notice that those with a leftist agenda never really address the spending and always call for more revenue from those evil rich people. I am NOT rich but have no problem with anyone keeping more of what they earn. When the rich have more money so do charities which actually help people instead of a govt. that wastes the money.

    As has been stated many times, there are two sides to a budget. Notice that those with a right wing agenda only want to focus on cutting spending and never focus on raising more revenue combined with proper cuts.

    Cutting tax rates by JFK, Reagan, and GW Bush did increase govt. revenue. So here you are, same tired old rhetoric on a different thread. Go to revenue and expenses at the attached non partisan site and check out income tax revenue AFTER the Bush and Reagan Tax cuts.

    I know this is hard for you to understand but if you would apply your own personal financial decisions to that of the Federal Govt. you would get it. When your revenue goes down(tax increases cutting take home pay) you spend less unless you are the Federal Govt. where as you blame lack of revenue for the problem. We don't have a revenue problem we have a spending problem.

    It's both. How hard is this for people to understand? Surplus = Revenue - Spending. Spending needs to come down and revenue needs to come up.

    And revenue will grow when the 16 plus million unemployed Americans get back to work and raising taxes does nothing to make that happen.

    Controlled spending would stop the out of control increasing debt. The democrats can not just have a tax extension bill they have to load it with pork to buy votes

    That's for providing the secret formula . What has the Obama Administration done since it came into office to make you think its serious about cutting spending ? Appointed a debt commission ? Whooo Hoooo ! Even their final recommendation formula was 75% cuts to 25% tax increases. But I only see Obama and the liberals here wanting to raise taxes on "the evil rich".

    As others have noted, the fix from the revenue side will only come when we get mroe people back to work in private sector jobs. It'll never happen otherwise. This current "deal", while it is now getting its pork attachments, goes much further to that end than the original Stimulus. It certainly will be far better received by the job creators than teh first Stumus fiasco.
