    Keep beating that dead horse, you'll never get to ride it.
    The question might be why do conservatives think that paying less taxes is always the only correct answer. There are plenty of people and corporations today with lots of cash on hand, and they aren't spending it. IMO, govt needs to spend less of our taxes, but at the same time incentivize those who have money to spend it.....

    Are you ever going to answer the question? Why are "progressives" so passionate about higher taxes?

    Because I don't take you seriously.

    Because they are not "passionate" about higher taxes.

    Because paying less taxes plays into the role of a a small Central govt. As long as Obama is in power those with money aren't going to spent it. How about answering the question, why do progressives have such passion for higher taxes?

    higher than when? letting the Bush cuts expire for the rich isn't going to damage the economy, and if we can get more people back to work, tax revenue should go up....


    The economy seems to be doing better than it was, if traffic around the malls in Phoenix is any indication. This Christmas season should tell us something.

    The War in Iraq happened, what does any of that have to do with what is going on right now?

    What exactly is allowing the tax cuts on the wealthy going to do? All raising taxes on the rich is going to do is force the rich to change their behavior. Some will pay it, some will move to more friendly tax states and take their business with them just like Caterpillar did with a divison that just moved to TX from Illinois. What affect does that have on state tax revenue?

    Progressives promoting raising taxes on anyone speaks volumes and that is the question, why? Is there any evidence that you can show that tax increases positively impact deficit reduction and put people back to work?

    And how do you know that? Stop buying what you are told and wait for the facts. We have a part time legislature here and won't know about the deficit if there is one until next year.
