    Yes you and Lpast agree....but you both probably also voted for Barack HusSame Obama--The Most Expensive President in History.......

    .....the more Republicans stop Obama and this insanity of Liberalism that has consumed Washington........the more likely they will gain power.

    Granted you wont agree........but come back and tell me in 2012.......when Republicans retake the Senate and the Presidency....assuming they dont commit political suicide in the meantime.

Ideally, the government never gets to this point because we watch and constrain it well enough that it operates properly and by the rights and liberties of the individual.

    But we all must bear the consequences of our actions, and if we don't like the consequences then we have to change our actions. There's no such thing as a free lunch.

    There is every reason to........for a growing booming economy will solve quite a few of our ills..........

    Giving every employer a tax cut/"pay raise".....giving every consumer a tax cut/"pay raise"........is the sure ticket to a growing booming economy.....and a growth in government revenues.

    So if we have a zero tax rate, then the government makes like infinite money?

    ....about as much money as a government imposed 100% tax rate.

    Two economies........one with a 1% tax rate.........one with a 99% tax rate........

    ........which one collects more revenues?

    Why on earth are you against raising taxes then? It's not like the Republicans are going to raise taxes, and not get massive spending cuts. What they're doing right now isn't political suicide, it's compromise, and the how the political process should always work.

    Tell me, why have did you blow this so far out of proportion? They're going to cut spending and raise taxes; the best of both worlds.

    To raise taxes........is to give a pay cut to every Employer and Consumer to whom it applies.

    If you think stealing more from employers is going to create more jobs..........if you think stealing more from We The People will create more consumption.......if you think Unemployment Checks are the best way to create jobs.........Vote Democrat.

    It's not like the Republicans are going to raise taxes, and not get massive spending cuts. What they're doing right now isn't political suicide, it's compromise, and the how the political process should always work.
    For the last 50 years "Compromise" and "Bipartisanship" has meant "Doing whatever Democrats want to do"...........

    ......should Republicans "compromise" with The Kenyan Tyrant and The DNC.......especially on this issue........its clearly political suicide.

    Tell me, why have did you blow this so far out of proportion? They're going to cut spending and raise taxes; the best of both worlds.
    Rasing taxes will make this Recession Great.....and The Democrat Party cant bring itself to cut a Cowboy Poetry Contest.......much less anything else. Far from the best of both worlds.........

    Depends on the economy. Certainly for most there is a turnover point. The real problem is that we don't actually know where that global maximum is.

    Dissappointing. You were being rational and reasonable for a moment there...and then you made this post. At least I know you have the ability to post more than hate-filled hyper-partisan rhetoric.

    I do believe this post of your signifies your conceding of the argument.....running away with your tail between your legs will confirm it.

    WE THE PEOPLE seem to be close to a 100% agreement............CUT GOVERNMENT SPENDING..........rationality begins there.

    Giving MORE MONEY to a big bloated out of control liberal nanny state government.........and The Most Expensive President in History.........would only be another testament to Insanity.
