    I have no idea as to veracity of link provided.


    now tell me, is this link wrong? I remember certain folks saying that this administration was not raising taxes.


    Is this another campaign promise broken?


    How in this near depression can you afford this?
    I do know you NEVER believe what any squalid Politician tells you.
    Invariably they are two faced.
    Campaign promises are made just so that they can be broken.

    Good luck proving that.

    government spending is what costs us money
    But you're missing one side of the equation. Maybe you think that government spending doesn't increase wealth. I guess you think NASA hasn't done anything for the economy. Or the entire Defense Industry just prays God will strike down our enemies. Or that the NIH has never produces a life savings drug.

    Sorry. Using my brain. I know it's dangerous.

    tax cuts being "tax neutral" is not the issue

    the issue is statists claiming that tax cuts have to be paid for

    they don't. Government spending has to be paid for and much of the government spending is on items that are neither properly constitutional or good for society

    what a stupid argument

    why do you libs want America to be a welfare socialist state like sweden

    why don't you move there

    just because other countries rape their citizens (remind me how many top Swedish athletes or rock singers live in Sweden rather than Monte Carlo) doesn't justify the wealth grabbers being allowed to do it here.

    The Swedish are quite happy with their system I think. Sweeden ranks pretty high.

    EDIT:Some reason it wouldn't let me edit my last post.
    7. Sweden – 7,7 points
    This “welfare state” model is an excellent example of effective national taxes. Among other things the state provides universal tax-funded childcare, parental leave, health care, education (including university), retirement pensions and sick leave. Including value added tax (VAT – kind of like sales tax), it is possible to pay up to 80% of your income as taxes. Contrary to popular belief, Swedes are quite OK with their high taxes. After all it gives them tons of free and high quality services – what’s not to be happy about!
    The good old USA ranks 17th.. even with the lower taxation... imagine that.

    Sweden is also a much smaller , more contained country. Social systems tend to thrive in those conditions. I'm all for social programs but hard implementation isn't an option in our current state.

    Sweden doesn't have a war or two every decade. They don't police the world.
