    why do dems demand that those who don't pay enough should not have tax hikes but those who pay too much and are hit with the death tax surcharge pay even more?

    vote buying pure and simple

    If you understood the difference between "should" and "want" you probably would have understood the point being made.

You can blame him for the stimulus, for healthcare, whatever, that's fine. But to attribute the entire $4 trillion dollars of added debt to Obama, and then say "hey look, he was sooo much worse than Bush!" is absolutely simple-minded.
    No problem, get as upset as you want, obama economic policies have not generated the economic growth that would create the employment to grow govt. revenue enough to offset the trillions he is spending so yes, that is his fault, period. You don't like it, then don't vote for him in 2012.

    2009 Obama spending 350 billion TARP, 800 billion stimulus, and war supplementals for the Afghanistan surge
    2010 1.3 trillion debt with a budget of 3.5 trillion debt
    2011 1.7 trillion debt on a budget of 3.7 trillion so you tell me where the spending cuts are in the Obama budgets.

    Wrong, that link that was provided showed discusson about the Obama record which is justification for a failed candidacy. Obama has to run on his record and that record is a disaster thus his candidacy should fail.

    Firstly, you are lying about the comment, "as much as I have reprimanded you and given you infractions." Retract or I will demonstrate, publicly the percentage of your total infractions that I have given you. Go check.

    Secondly, I am uninterested in you linking to a general page. Post the actual statistics that are being requested an a link to THAT page. You have been asked to source a number. It is not MY job to do your work for you. Source the number.
