    Do we have more jobs, is the economy prospering, is there less wealth inequality between the classes? Or, did the rich just get richer?

    Make your argument to seniors why they should suffer more for an even bigger tax cut for the wealthy as the GOP proposes.

    Yes, and with no concern for deficit spending. Sounds like he has a good plan to sink the country.

    there is no evidence that the Bush tax-cuts for the wealthy created any more jobs.

    the dem schemes of making more and more people competitive on the government has really screwed the pooch. That is why the middle class is failing to prosper much like addicts stoned out of their gourds

    you lefties have made failure comfortable and then you wonder why so many fail

    its not my fault you fail to advance yourself. You have proven-over the last three years in your posts, that you blame others and will continue to blame others for your lack of success and that failure to take responsibility for your lot in life is what holds you back

    not me

    Not Romney

    nor that tax hikes will create more jobs either but what tax hikes will do is give the government more money to waste

    Not being discretionary spending, SS and Medicare are exempt from the sequestration cuts.

    BTW, The Democrats are the party that has proposed cutting spending on the military, the GOP has pledged to increase spending on the military.

    Exactly, and voters are acutely aware of this, its why they no longer swallow the trickle down BS being regurgitated by present day GOP.

    there is no proof that raising taxes on the rich can reduce the deficit or will be used for that

    your party has to keep spending to buy the votes of its constituents. Cutting spending castrates the power of the dems to win elections

    yeah, so we can take on the Soviet Union. Or Al Qaeda's massive army.

    um..who exactly do we need to confront with a larger military?
