    If you think the Republican Party has your best interests at heart, you are the one who's crazy.
    Oh, you mean back when the deficit was a couple hundred billion dollars? Why do you think Republicans stayed home in the 2006 elections? They were spending too much and the liars Pelosi and Reid actually said they were going to reduce wasteful spending. If only we had known.

    We had a surplus and a recession. You really think Bush should have kept increasing revenues at Clinton rates with a surplus and a recession?

    Yeah, when the deficit was a couple hundred billion. Why didn't they reduce spending when they could?

    Bush put more money in the coffers. 2.57 trillion is a lot more than 2.02 trillion.

    Yeah, the tax cuts killed revenue so much that we hit all time record revenue generation. I say kill the hell out of it, if that's the case!

    I don't know, but that is why they lost in 2006 and why Republicans now are catering more to TEA party influences and we have good representatives and senators who want to reduce spending and get government under control, like Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, Alan West, etc.

    I never asked you anything. You're the one trying to bust my balls with your silly little equations to figure gross income.

    ...I'm sorry, but I can't help bu LMAO when I think about that.

    I thought the right wing talking point was that the surplus was a myth.

    OK, Bush's idea then was that we had "extra money" that should be given back. So taxes were lowered, and now there's not a lot of room to go lower to spur the economy in a recession. According to the Repbublicans, when times are good, lower taxes. When times are bad, lower taxes. Oh, and keep spending in the meantime.
