But from your responses to my posts, you typecast me in one way that I am not. Spending habits of government must be changed. Only those programs that work should be funded.

    I think tax rates should be based on the contributions you make to the economy overall.

    So sorry that I want to improve things for everyone and not just the top 1%.
    as long as dem politicians promise a ton of voters that all funding that is needed will be paid for by more and more tax hikes on "the rich" those voters will never have any reason to support spending cuts

    Who calls it a tax hike?
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    You forget the f'ing fact that the economy got along just fine with the rates before Bush. He CUT taxes at the same time that he started to multi-trillion dollar wars. I know it's easy for you partisan types to overlook that, but I won't.

    I'm just afraid that if Republicans get back power, they'll revert to their "borrow-and-spend" ways.

    Oh, that's adorable.

    Someone's trying to convince us that the *deficit* is cause by a *lack of taxes*
    When really - all educated people know - that the deficit is caused by excessive government spending.

    But I guess that's just a technical - a minute detail - when it comes to the world of political partisan hackery. Truly, I'm tired of people trying to drag me into the Democrat party with this kind of bull****.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Funny, I've necver seen anyone call a recession "just fine" before. By that standard, today's economy must be DANDY!

    But you will overlook the fact that Bush created a brand new unconstitutional entitlement and did nothing to cut spending on all the other unconstitutional nonsense the federal government is still wasting money on, and naturally, it's the unconstitutional spending that's seiving the defici. It is, after all, illegal.

    If the tax rates go up, it's a tax hike.

    Not complicated.

    You mean like right now when Obama with a Democrat Congress has added 3 trillion to the debt. I am sure there is no borrowing and spending now, right?

    I already did, in the post that you quoted. Here’s a hint, its hid under the capital letters (TEFRA).
    You have shown me that taking money from the rich has helped the middle class? I must have missed that post and apologize. Please re-post so that I can give you proper credit. You think TEFRA benefited the middle class? Please explain how
