    Either way it is cheap wedge politics. Change you can believe in? We don't have blue or red states but purple states. Sounds pretty cheap from a hack politician,
    true enough

    but Obama is hiking taxes on the sector that pays more than half the income taxes. not hiking taxes on those who do not pay FIT is worthless though it sounds good.

    The people have no power to force the government to curtail spending.

    The tax breaks sunset at the end of the year as part of the law, he is not raising taxes.

    At the beginning of next year will you have more or less take home pay with the expiration of the Bush tax cuts?

    I guess we will have to get “Obvious child” in here to explain the difference to you …again, the difference in debt and deficit.

    Here, look at the National Debt as a percentage of GDP. Notice that the last Republican that managed to put a _ in the column was tricky Dick.

    Check the gippers numbers, two terms of red +followed by one term(George the 1st ) of red + followed by two terms of green _(Clinton ) followed by two super numbers of red +(George the 2nd ).

    Are you seeing the pattern here conservative? Republicans come in a wreck the economy, then comes the Dems in to fix the damage. Hope that the wingers didn’t do so much damage that it is not reparable.

    National debt by U.S. presidential terms - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Why don't you explain it to me because the chart shows both? As you can see there was a deficit each year and the debt went up each year. Clinton's claims were a lie and you and the media bought it.

    Wikipedia? LOL, my numbers came from the checkbook of the U.S. Mine are the official numbers.

    I will not discuss personal finances including taxes on this forum, that information is between me and my wife. Got it?

    The point I made was a valid one, the sunset date in the law has nothing to do with President Obama.

    The sunset date doesn't but the unwillingness to extend them does. You are the one that said the expiration of the Bush tax cuts doesn't constitute a tax increase. Discuss it with your wife but don't tell us that having less take home pay after January 1 isn't a tax increase. Sounds like you have Clinton "depends on what the word is means" syndrome.

    You have to make it personal, don't you?

    You divert from the question, how do you explain the reduction in your paycheck after January 1, 2011, a pay reduction by your employer?
