    That's liberal talk. Cut housing and health insurance for poor Americans and increase defense spending so we can give foreigners democratic governments, thats what I say.

    The misery actually started with Gerald Ford and got worse during Carter. The economy was so bad, that Ford gave us a 5% rebate on the purchase of our first home in 1975.

    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?
    The rich aren't "forced" to do anything just because their taxes go back to pre-Bush days. You make it sound like the rich will suffer. How will that be? Caterpillar moved to Texas most likely for a better labor conditions, as Texas is a right to work state, and Illinois is not. That means no union to deal with. See, there is not always a single cause and effect. Tax cuts don't always lead to a better economy.

    So, do you suggest that Reagan is WORSE than Obama because it took him five years for jobs to recover and Obama has already come down from his peak unemployment number?

    Obviously, I know that's not what you're suggesting - but a little history helps.

    are you willing to pay the same tax rates as the rich

    if you aren't in their shoes where do you get off claiming none of them will suffer? that is an ignorant comment because you have no idea what expenses they have.

    Tax hikes almost never lead to anything good unless you are a parasitic politician or envious of those who are more industrious than you are

    They were lost due to the great recession during the Bush presidency when he failed to rein in Wall Street and the large lending instutions.
