    Lets get into the first part of your post and put the strawman aside for now. Would you agree if …what you refer to as the “tax increases” were used only for lowering the debt would you climb aboard?

    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

    They sure don't change, you show up and offer nothing but one sentence responses with zero substance. Asking a liberal the tough questions is always considered a personal attack. Interesting how they never answer any question. Have a good day!

    Rather than "popping in to yell 'bull****,'" why not participate in the thread and explain why you think he's wrong on the merits?
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    I welcome you setting me straight by giving me the sites that you find credible that refute what I have been posting. I would love to learn something from you and other liberals.

    No, because I understand even your human behavior. You are not going to have more spendable income with higher taxes and it is spendable income that makes our economic engine go. How does having less in your take home pay going to affect your behavior? Why is that so hard to admit?

    Today we have 16 million unemployed Americans and thus paying minimum taxes, think raising taxes is going to put them back to work?

    Are you saying that he's a liar?
    No more so than any other politician who says that tax cuts will change the economy. Please note, in an earlier post, though - I did say that they can have short-term stimulus effects. They just don't alter the economic landscape significantly over time.

    They would if the govt. would quit spending money on social engineering programs. If you got to keep more of what you earned wouldn't you need less of that so called "govt. help? Instead govt. keeps growing and growing and thus "needing" more revenue. When are you going to put the brakes on that 3.8 trillion dollar Obama budget excluding stimulus and healthcare?

    you have no interest in debate, you have made that plain to see, and i , and it seems several others, have decided not to waste our time on you....i would also encourage others to just put you on 'ignore', as to try and have a conversation with you is a giant waste of bandwidth.

    Then why not dedicate… say… half of the so-called tax increase to reducing the debt and the other half to stimulus that makes our “economic engine go”?
