    The burden is on the people, who are soveriegn. They decide how our tax moneys are to be spent.

    where does the federal government get the power to do that? let me guess "general welfare clause?

    Yep, the GOP keeps promising to cut spending, but when they control the purse strings, they spend like drunken sailors on leave

    why cannot the dems agree to spending cuts without trying to derail them with tax hikes

    do the dems believe that EVERY PENNY OF GOVERNMENT SPENDING IS GOOD AND PROPER?

    that is the only possible argument they have for getting tax hikes as a concession to cutting spending
    dems want to raise taxes on those who pay too little of the income tax

    that's a non-starter for the corporate appologists on the right

    The dems have agreed to spending cuts far larger than the repukes are willing to swallow

    Before you can have communism, you must have socialism, or so it says in Marxist doctrine. If you want to debate the Great Leap Forward, I have no problem with that/ However, I prefer you give me reasons for such a conclusion instead of insulting me.
    We're still waiting for you to come up with an example of the free market lifting a people out of poverty.

    Hong Kong is not a free market, not by any stretch of the imagination

    Let us know when you can come up with an example of a free market that has lifted its' people up from poverty. "Closest to a free market" does not mean "A free market"

    another one of the 100 or so lies you have posted

    the top 2 percent are paying more income tax than any other group of the similar number of people so you are completely totally and thoroughly dishonest

    and your juvenile attempts to copy my posts and respam them is childish
