    You really are oblivious to this it would seem. And now you suggest that the members of the Congress who happen to be democrats are also not successful and need your advice?

    again sir...Simply because I do not publicly puff out my chest and boast about my income,wealth, property or lifestyle like the obvious offenders here is no reason for you to assume that I am NOT successful and make accordingly condescending remarks.

    What you call "whining" is what others would call participating in the national debate about our national laws and government.
    Data from the Bureau of Economic Analysis, Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. Treasury Dept showing that govt. revenue and jobs increased after the JFK, Reagan, and GW Bush tax rate cuts. Or the U.S. Treasury site that shows the line items for the Federal Budget funded by income taxes which do not fund police, fire departments, or teachers. Those sites!

    You are losing the debate about the role of the govt. as evidenced by the "shellacking" liberalism took on Nov. 2

    i am sorry but I did not realize we were debating the tax cuts of bygone eras. I was under the impression that this was about today. That is what the opening post in this thread is directed to at any rate.

    History shows that tax cuts raised govt. revenue and created jobs, why won't that happen today? How do you explain that happening and what is your solution to cutting the highest deficit on record? Think raising the taxes on the top 2% will do that and where in history has the govt. ever applied added revenue to the deficits?

    What jobs were created by the Bush tax cuts of this past decade? if your claim is right, we should have full employment after a decade of cutting taxes. However, you and I both know that is not the case.

    That is what the BLS is there for, from 2001-2007 8.5 million of them. You probably would learn a thing or to with a little research, BLS is a great non partisan site.

    Teach a person to fish and they can feed themselves for a lifetime, give a man a fish and they get one meal. Learn to do the research and you will stop being a liberal.

    I have done the research and it tells me the direct opposite you are claiming.

    So i extend to you the opportunity to present your case that the Bush tax cuts created jobs. Please present your evidence and i will be happy to look at it. Assuming, of course, that you have the evidence to present.

    I will be out for a while so take your time.
