    that's a moronic claim-the tax cuts everyone else got resulted in more money than the tax cuts for those who pay most of the taxes. you didn't fund anything.

    Re: What purpose did the tax cut for the wealthiest serve?

    Obamas blank check? You all do realize Obama contributed maybe 10% to the total defecit right? Was it Obama's policies that lead us into the first depression since the 1930's, or was it Republican policies? Have bush tax cuts been in place for over a decade, while we still see a decline in job growth and businesses that are willing to hire? Its hard to use the arguement that tax cuts produce job growth when history and data shows the exact opposite. You dont cut government programs to reduce defecit, you give additional tax breaks to businesses that hire and move their factories/money back to American soil.....and tax the hell out of those that dont. Sometimes the solution doesnt completely lay on cutting essentials for the middle and lower class. The lower and middle classes are what makes the economy fuction. They buy the products and create the demand. By diminishing their ability to live, eat, and sleep with a roof over their head, almost 100% assures a failing economy. Those of you that still blame Obama for our economic problems need to wake up, quit basing your opinions on feelings, and understand it was the sole leadership of the GOP that lead us into this disaster, and not ONE man on this planet could be leading us in a better direction at this point. Congress is broken, The tea party has hijacked government, and the GOPs only goal is to make Obama fail. This will all come back to haunt the Republican party come election time.


    All Obama has to do is push for job creating programs while insisting tax's must be increased on the top 3% of Americans to make it work. Is the GOP really going to refuse to support a job creation program that calls for additional revenue requirements from the wealthiest Americans in country? Poll after poll shows Americans want HIGHER TAXES put in place on the super rich, and at some point the GOP is going to have to give the American people what they want.

    The GOP calls Obama a dictator... I think we are seeing the exact opposite. Im an independent voter and am not very impressed with the GOP right now.

    Selfish comes to mind right away....At some point in time during your upbringing, you were allowed to be selfish...like an animal(particularly those of the lower orders)..not like a human being. I feel that we were meant to be social / sharing / caring ...perhaps I am wrong....

    selfish is demanding others pay for your existence

    selfish is imposing costs on others by your demands

    sharing is one thing

    coercion is another.

    its like consensual sex versus rape

    Re: What purpose did the tax cut for the wealthiest serve?

    Why are people afraid of these "death commitee's" if we were ever to have free government healthcare someday? What the hell do you think insurance companies are? Insurance companies have entire departments dedicated to ONLY finding ways to decline healthcare/surgery claims. Insurance companies are death boards. There is no guarantee that your insurance company will cover anything, its all at their discretion. How do I know this? I worked for one.

    I do agree people that are willing to pay for healthcare should be entitled to "their standard view of quality" healthcare at their own private clinics and hospitals. When people pay an outrageous price for a service, they feel they are getting something of quality, that others cant have, which is a sad example of corporate influence.

    To claim Free healthcare would mean a decline in quality of care is just rediculous. Many nations around the world have free healthcare and they all seem to be doing just fine. Prescription drug costs are also becoming insanely high, I cant imagine the great feeling I would have being able to pick up a $300.00 prescription free of charge.

    Healthcare is a human right, not a want. No one should have to die of cancer or a life threatening illness because they dont have the funds to assit doctors/surgeons in purchasing their 10th car. Its rediculous and a sin.

    I dont understand why the middle class defends insurance companies, corporations, and drug companies. They create this false sense of "terror" that if you take away their right to control every aspect of your life, you wil be certain to see pending doom in the form of government care! This is all a scare tactic. People may be surprised to find that government healthcare would probably exceed that of private standards. When you take profit out of the mix, that means every patient would be treated the same, regardless of the money in your wallet. That to me is real healthcare.

    Free prescriptions, a personal nurse if needed, standard GUARANTEED coverage of all major surgeries, diseases, and mental disabilities are all benefits not many insurance companies would give their clients the light of day without insane annuals, copays, and deductibles. Even after all theses additional charges, there is still no guarantee your insurance company will cover it. These are not companies looking out for your best interest, these are companies looking out for generating the maximum profits possible while at the same time getting rid of risky, expensive patients.

    The next time we have a war no more hiding out behind college deferments, every able bodied person regardless of who their daddy is needs to serve and no cushy type assignments.

    Cowardness is hiding behind your wealth or social position when it's time to defend your freedoms
