    THOSE WHO REFUSE TO WORK?!

    Do you think the vast majority of unemployed people WANT to receive unemployment and food stamps? The vast majority just want to get back into the field so that they stand on their own two feet again and feed their families. But they can't, because there aren't enough jobs for everyone.

    Yes, all taxation is bad as is all government. I suggest we cut the government to the bare minimum which we will never have consensus on in our society and completely dismantle the system! Never mind that the vast majority of homeless are working poor, taking whatever handouts they have will drive them to get a third or possibly fourth job! We can cut the deficit by gutting whatever glue holding society together! With higher taxes I wouldn't have enough money to buy more chinese ****. etc. blah.

    ummm, no, because the unemployement rate doesn't count people who have given up looking for work.

    WHICH MEANS

    If we counted the REAL unemployement, it is actually much higher than 9.8%, and has grown under Obama...specifically Obama. Under Bush, the was relative consistency between the unemployment rate, as we know it, and the real unemployment rate.

    When you consider that most wealthy get wealthy from gaining from those that are less wealthy directly or indirectly, taxing them how originally was before Bush W would be fine by me. I think in fact, had GWB not messed with taxes like he did, we would be in a far better situation than we are right now and people would even have less of a problem with the fact that he created 3 giant monsters in the government.

    Of course, I am just a blood-sucking socialist that works 60+ hours a week on average what the **** do I know?
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Most people don't know that most of the tax cuts are going to those who make 250,000 or less, not those who make more then 250,000.

    And the Democratic wing's unofficial platform :P

    This is no surprise. It's been about split with a very slight advantage toward letting it expire for the wealthy only for a while now.

    This is another poll:

    Wow, that sounds great!!
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Re: CBS News Poll: Most Oppose GOP Tax Plan

    Ive been listening to Hannity and Limbaugh and a morning conservative talk radio show lately. It is DISGUSTING how they twist the truth like a pretzel. Or just flat out lie. And none of them call it what it IS!!! They are calling it an economic investment. And a Tax Reinvestment Plan..... those are just TWO spin titles. (cant remember the others)
    THEEEN... Hannity calls the unemployeed LAZY! They should just pull themselves up and get a job. Or two...or five jobs. Then he talks about how heroic HE was when HE had *cough* financial trouble *cough* and how he got a job in less than 16 days because of his hard work and dedication. The TOTAL ignorance of this man is HUGE. The spin and BS is also HUGE.

    I am soooooooo sick and disgusted at the GOP! They ACT like they are similar to Libertarians but they are just as Socialist as Democrats!!!

    Socialize the cots, privatize the gains.

    I don't see how the Democrats are any better, they institute more or less the same policy, they just make a big fuss for a few months before they do.

    Vote independent or not at all!

    And the rest of them want all of them to expire.
