    Yes, but people had two years to forget who screwed them over in the first place. IN 2012, it will be obious to them that the GOP was not interested in jobs for America, the people will have seen how the first things the GOP went to work on was continuing the tax cuts for the rich, and taking away health care benefits from the middle class, just like they did for the 10 years before the Dems.

    In retrospect, it may be the GOP win in 2010 may be the best ad for a Dem win in 2012.

    Correction: we used to have a progressive tax system until it was slashed by Reagan and Bush.

    That is not what ocurred during the 50 years we had a progressive tax system.

    Really?

    Really?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    They were wrong. But it will have to be dealt with in any case after spending cuts if we are to reduce the National debt. The only other way would be to raise taxes on the middle class who are already suffering, and I don't think that is going to fly any longer politically.

    As they say you can pay me now or pay me later. Sooner or later a progressive tax system will have to be restored to reduce the National debt.

    Of course, I was only suggesting what needs to be done to seriously address our debt.

    My best to you, and us all!
