    That is what people do not get today, and why our economy is not as successful with such a wide disparity of wealth between the upper class and the middle class.

    Tax cut for the wealthy.....I get so tired of those left wing talking points......The only reason the left wants tax cuts to the wealthy stopped is so they will get more tax money for their failed welfare programs.......

    And for the ten millionth time, you are a huge leech on the system yourself and you are a strong supporter of those "failed welfare programs." Using Rush Limbaugh's talking points doesn't work when you support the programs he's trying to get rid of, my Marxist friend.

    Its amazing how left wingers like you hate our military so much that you even begrudge them a pension when they retire after protecting your ass for 20 or thirty years.....Don't worry you can begrudge us the measly pension we are paid for long deployments away from our families, 16 hours a day working we will still protect you.......

    Is there another plan out there I have not heard about?
    I'm discussing what the OP wrote:

    Should the 2001/2003 GWB tax cuts be extended for people that make under $250k?
    After reading the attached file in the OP - I realize that the OP should have written 'OVER $250K' - because, you're right, this issue is not directed towards people who make UNDER $250,000/year.

    I should have read the link thoroughly - 'cause then I would have caught the oops without being thrown way off.

    With what's actually being proposed - no - I don't disagree with it on a large scale. there are some details I don't approve of in the attached plan, but those aren't pertaining to the tax-cut itself.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Ever heard of deadweight loss? Thats what happens when you refuse tax cuts. Economically, its bad to have tax cuts, but its even worse to refuse them.

    And yes, I understand what I'm saying, and I can't wait for you to start jumping up and down yelling, "hypocrisy by a liberal!"

    Oh.

    You mean the Golden Shower Era under Carter, where businesses couldn't get capital because everyone was taxed too much.

    Funny, isn't it, how the economy crapped out in the 70's, just (ahem) coincidentally after the imposition of the Great Society on a formerly free nation?

    Oooooh!

    What's it called when a Tax Me More Fund is established and all the liberals clamoring for tax increases stay away from it?
