    Yep, spending is a part of the reduction picture.....Tell me today who is more serious about that when you have repubs proposing $61 Billlion, and demo's saying $4 billion?
    Talk is cheap look at the actual record over the last 30 years. They never walk the walk and we just get deeper in debt.


    So have you brother. Unless you are saying that it is up to someone else to pay it and not you too. In which case I would only say, "See..."
    Yes, see that it is the middle class that suffers for the tax cuts to the super rich and the wasteful spending. That is what I am saying.



    I am going to assume that you are talking about the country's 400 Billionair's. If that is what you are saying, then let clue you in. If you took every penny that those billionair's had, it would add up to around a Trillion dollars. That is Obama's deficit this year alone, and not even all of it. Now get real

    Those that make over $1 million get $93,000 tax cut on average every year, Add that up over the last 30 years and apply to our debt and it is cut substantially.

    I'm kinda betting that you're trying to bring everyone down to the poverty level. Anybody that can't give up a couple hundred bucks a year, to the government, is probably already on welfare, anyway.

    If you call keeping millions of starving people from slitting your throat for a loaf of bread, jack ****, then yep.

    What did the 9.2 trillion we've given the rich over the last 30 years do for us?

    We seem to forget that rich people are mobile. They can easily move from a high tax state and they can easily leave the country too.


    Maryland Politicians Crash on the Laffer Curve « International Liberty

    A Bank of America Merrill Lynch analysis of federal tax return data on people who migrated from one state to another found that Maryland lost $1 billion of its net tax base in 2008 by residents moving to other states. …Thanks in part to its soak-the-rich theology, Maryland still has a $2 billion deficit… The state’s best hope is that politicians in other states are as self-destructive as those in Annapolis

    And when big business gets tax payer subsidies and donates millions to Republicans and Republican-friendly organizations - like the US Chamber of Commerce, who gave 90% of their political donations to Republicans - you think that's ok?

    How is it cut substantially? For the current budget year, it represents almost nothing. Had you raised taxes on the rich, Obama's 1.5 trillion dollar deficit would have at best been reduced to 1.47 trillion (only in la la land where you assume there is zero economic benefit to the cut) - and at worst actually increased the deficit due to an added drain on the economy.
