    it appears you have (conveniently) missed the point

    the economy boomed and jobs were bountiful
    then the shrub did the opposite, cutting taxes on the wealthy and the economy tanked

    yet the republican mantra for any problem is "tax cuts"
    we can see from our current economic malaise that "tax cuts" is certainly not the answer
    it was not true during the dicknbush regime
    it is not true TODAY


    sorry, but i will speak the truth, especially in response to stupidity
    Run, Justbubba, Run!! Taking money from SS and puting it on budget steals from one fund for another doesn't create a surplus. You have been brainwashed and that makes you look foolish when the facts are posted.

    when the facts are with you, argue the facts
    when the law is with you, argue the law
    and when neither the facts nor the law are with you, bang on the table

    keep banging

    LOL, total employmnt has decreased under Obama. How can an ideology brainwash so many people. There are less employed today than when Obama took office

    Create your own chart by clicking on total employment and see if employment went up or down under Obama?

    What facts, the fact that public debt went down by taking from Intergovt. holdings? How does that create a surplus? If there was a surplus why did debt service go up as did total debt?

    read the CBO data. it has been previously cited
    you have not been able to show that it is other than valid
    you cannot refute it

    Why don't you ask the consumer protection agency if the nanny state has decreased. After you do that I have a whole line of other people like the FCC for you to ask.

    And I would like proof that employment has decreased.

    I am not arguing public debt numbers but you are ignoring that the total debt went up due to the fact that SS was taken from Intergovt. holdings and that created a deficit there. That is totally dishonest. Total debt is the issue not public debt. I have totally refuted it with Treasury numbers.

    How can an ideology create so many brainwashed people. You want to believe that there was a Clinton surplus but that is a flat lie. There WAS a surplus in Public debt but that is only part of the story, total debt went up.

    Clinton was right place right time, if you dont know that. we really have to end this argument here.
    or you can point to a particular Clinton policy that propped up this revenue gain you speak of.
    i'm all ears.

    yet the republican mantra for any problem is "tax cuts"
    we can see from our current economic malaise that "tax cuts" is certainly not the answer
    it was not true during the dicknbush regime
    it is not true TODAY
    do you even hear yourself, tax cuts means we keep more of our money.
    The government is spending and wasting beyond belief, and your answer is we should give them more of OUR money?
    have you lost your mind.

    sorry, but i will speak the truth, especially in response to stupidity
    you speak in what CNN has told you to speak.
