    Someone has to pay, why not those that can afford it? Those that aren't suffering from the effects of the recession caused by the rich.
    Lefty? That's funny coming from someone that leeches off the government.
    The truth is my socialist friend, I hope the republicans get power and eliminate your social security and medicare. It's time you commies take care of yourselves.
    I am finished asking for a job from anyone.

    Yeah? And where, pray tell will the business owners, investors, etc. get any money for expansion of the private sector when 75-85% of their money will be tied up in worthless government welfare programs??

    You do know that companies are downsizing and laying off, don't you? There is too much capacity in this country now due to reduced demand. Why in hell would they expand? Use some common sense, man. Expansion? Give me a break.

    It's funny how you guys keep repeating talking points that don't make sense.
    Rush said the exact same thing the other day. He is clueless about supply and demand too.

    Don't you know anything about economics?
    Companies are laying off and downsizing because of reduced demand. They are not expanding. Hello? Giving them tax cuts will not spur demand so they will not hire or expand anyway. They already have too much capacity. All tax cuts for the rich will do is increase their bonuses.

    Tax cuts should be focused where the people are hurting most. The middle class. The rich will survive just fine. They always do and they always get richer.

    I forgot more about economics then you will ever know...That said thanks to your daddy Obama we have a 10% uneemploment rate in this country.......We need to get people back to work and cutting taxes is not the answer....To get people back to work someone has to hire them and that is the people who make over 250K.........You take their money and they have none to hire anyone........People get jobs........they spend money..that stimulates the economy......what part of that do you not understand????

    The unemployment that the US faces was not caused by Obama per se. In reality America's economice woes stem from a lax monetary policy within the Federal Reserve (and this has being going on for decades). Interests rates held at very low levels encouraged mal-investment and the break down of the pricing system that would normally signal to the market, which areas of the economy need increased or decreased investment.

    Secondly, the supply side economics brought under Reagan are dangerous because they still are premised on the importance of the state, and b) that the state can willy nilly spend like a drunken sailor, because the Laffer Curve of revenue will support everything.

    What America needs is less tax and less government spending. Because like it or lump it, America must pay back its debt. Thus cutting taxes while ignoring government spending, and the role of the Federal Reserve will only increase the debt of the United States.

    America needs to return to the economic virtues after WWII, where the U.S had the worlds largest savings and actually loaned money to other nations. I agree with reduced taxes, but this cannot be done unless Americans actually have the guts to reduce government spending at the same time. Supply side economics seems to be popular because it appeals to an infantile notion that one can have their cake and eat it to. Tax cuts by themselves without spending cuts will only exacerbate the U.S's debt problems.
