    That's how you figure gross income?

    I didn't know you needed an equation to figure gross income.

    I'm sorry, dude, but that's some funny stuff right there.

    Bush was elected president, then Al Qaeda attacked on 9/11. Can I point out that Bush's election caused 9/11?
    How much more revenue has Obama's economic plan generated? I bet Obama would give his right nut to be able to brag that he increased tax revenues a measly 28%.

    Oh Jesus. I am not sure why I continue bothering with this.

    apdst, can you please show us all the equation for deficit or surplus? Again, if you can find an equation for deficit/surplus that does not include revenue, I'll leave you alone about this.

    I don't either. You need to take some time and learn the difference between gross revenue and net income, then come back and get on you high horse.

    Well I didn't want to use net income, because net income requires taking out taxes. I should have said net revenues, but either way you are distracting from the point because of a minor faux pas. Show an equation for deficit or surplus, or quit making up nonsense such as "Tax cuts have nothing to do with deficit spending."

    the increase in federal revenue during the Bush regime, is horrible.

    under Clinton, it was very good.

    Clinton increased revenue by 75%.

    Bush increased revenue by 28%.

    Your reaction?

    I thought the subject was taxes and deficit spending. I guess Obama is immune from any kind of criticism, as usual.
