    Oh, you finally found one poll out of 20 to say what you want it to! Only 19 more to go and you'll be there!

    Well I did find the only poll that matters.........



    Im betting if a majority of Americans wanted Tax and Spend Happy Liberals.......they would have elected them......rather than tossing them out on their asses in the biggest political ass whooping in history.

    But tell us more about your polls in 2012.....when Republicans retake the Senate and the Kenyan turd is flushed.

    you simply can't cut the budget to 2 Trillion unless you are willing to make deep cuts in the entitlements.

    furthermore, the CBO is forced to utilize static scoring in its' treatment of taxes. in reality, rates matter very little - it's growth that is important.
    Maybe I should have been more specific, if you take out the Bush tax cuts, and thoroughly rollback spending along with trimming the fat on other programs by 1-1.5% you can easily do that.

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
