    why do you believe in giving a wasteful bloated government more money when you already admit it would do nothing to reduce the deficit

    why cannot people DEMAND that there be SIGNIFICANT cuts before anyone pays another extra dime to this hog of a government?

    It is why you cut costs too. People need to realize to really get a handle on this debt, taxes need to go up and spending needs to go down. Doing one or the other will not do it.

    You are afraid to say what means more to you?

    keeping YOUR tax cut or sticking it to the rich

    its a hypothetical

    and why does it stimulate the economy to allow someone making 199K a year in Arkansas but not to allow someone making 275 K a year In NYC

    in economic reality land-the amount of discretionary income might be much larger with the former

    your boy's artificial and idiotic line that starts at 200K is just plain stupid

    I think anyone who remembers what happened with the promised Dem spending cuts under Reagan and GHWB will not trust the government until the massive cuts come FIRST

    There should be no reason to trust that the opposite will happen either. The both have to happen at the same time.

    We won't be creating any new jobs if we don't get the tax cuts we want.

    Good, then the economy and nation will suffer. Good to know that if you don't get what you want then you will cry like a little girl.

    why should we give a wasteful government any more money until it drastically cuts the waste

    we all know that people who use government spending to buy votes need those tax hikes to justify continuity of that spending

    spending cuts of a significant amount would be the death knell of the political careers of those whose main argument for holding office is giving the money of some to their constituents in terms of government spending

    No speaka the English or something? All the Democrats need to do is let the all of the tax cuts expire, and then just renew the middle class tax cuts and dare the GOP to vote against them. Middle class tax cuts stimulate the economy by creating consumer demand for production, the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy have demonstrated no benefit to the economy or the working class so there is no reason for people to continue to allow them.

    I find that idiotic. Tax hikes are far more likely to hurt this economy than creating some certainty with making the current tax rates permanent or switching to a congress-castrating tax plan such as a NST or "Fair Tax"
