    it's not ****ing rocket science, and the majority of the people in the us.s believe we should RAISE taxes on the wealthy, not give them more breaks. tell me, how did reagan's cuts and bush's cuts decrease our debt? answer: they didn't. definition of insanity? doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. that's republicans.
    You consider doing away with loopholes and dropping cooperate taxes to where we are competitive with the rest of the world, insanity?
    I think borrowing 40 cents for every dollar we spend and still thinking we need to spend more, is insanity.

    So until then, how does it help balance the budget?

    This whole Ryan budget idea is simply part of a larger war on working class people waged by right wing Republicans...(is that last part redundant?)
    Why does that have to be in Ryan's proposal? Obama's already trying to take care of it.

    Thanks for the article from the Heritage Foundation Barb. They are a perfect reverse barometer and it lets me know that whatever they say, just do the opposite.

    Oh you mad....


    So I read you wrong, I conceded that. stop posturing in an attempt to deflect now, ok?



    what question?



    I make no leap. The Tea Party is an extreme wing of the GOP, it's where it's got its start. Are you denying that the people who support the Tea Party were supporters of the GOP if they have no one else more right-wing than the GOP candidate to vote for?

    Well that's a lie.


    If you were honest, you would know, because you have been here at DP for some time, that we who are the tea party, started as a libertarian group, who had repulicans join up in opposition to BUSH's Stimulous spending, and there has been a tea party even before that through ron paul types.....


    You want to be a partisan hack so you cackle on about how the tea party is a far right wing group without any intelligence of opinion. Just false accusations.


    I didn't lie about anything, so you just pulled that out of your ass. It's the kind of partisanship and hypocrisy you display that hampers debate. Weren't you the one who said:




    So a distinct Tea Party is suddenly important now? Are you denying that the Republican platform is about "smaller government, more accountable reps, reduced spending, and lower taxes" and all that rhetorical crap?

    Can you not read, Didn't I just say that tea party or not, folks have had enough with the spending., the taxes, and unaccountable reps? Talk about "partisan hypocrisy"....

Given the current ideological makeup of the GOP, showing that the tea party faction is the extreme right wing of the party would be like trying to show which of a house filled with twenty dollar ladies of the night is the most virtuous.

    I really do not think its factually possible to identify the extreme right wing given the group in question.


    That's retarded as usual. To you if its right of Obama, it's "Extreme right wing".

    You don't have to like their opinion about it. I was just showing that defense cutting is being done.

    Will have to get back to you on this. It looks like the CBO is not crazy about his Medicare plan. Might have to change my mind on that part.

    Given the apparent demographics of the Tea Party, it appears they would be cutting their healthcare in the near future. Why would they do that?
