    But then again, its democracy, its the only way, to follow the downward spiral.. So yes, they will stay in place. So will the enourmous doubling of military expenditures, and so will all other things. On top of that, taxes will probably be cut again, for re-election purposes.
    Democracy is wonderful, isnt it?


    But SHOULD they stay in place? NO Fraking way... And defense spendings needs to be cut as well, to pre-fascist levels.

    Why the **** don't we just disarm and start talking arabic???? Jesus Christ, where do we get them from??????????????

    yes, because what this question really means is "should we extend the tax cuts, or deliberately raise unemployment?"

    That makes the most sense to me as well.

    I think that anyone who does not think the Bush taxes should not be extended should send theirs back to Obama but don't hold your breath............

    A new tax cut should be implemented targeting the middle class to stimulate demand. There is too much capacity and not enough demand.

    So far you haven't offered any plausible suggestions for how you'd like to balance the budget...you've just offered up a few tiny token programs, instead of addressing the elephant in the room: Entitlement spending. You want low taxes but are unwilling to make serious sacrifices in terms of government programs. People like you are exactly why we have had a deficit for most of the last 50 years.

    Bushes tax cuts were corporate welfare disguised as a "tax break". They primarily benefitted the most well to do.

    Republicans need to learn a clue. "Trickle down economics didn't work with Reagan....they didn't work with GWB.....why do you think they will work in 2010??


    The Republicans need to learn that trying the same failed thing over and over and over and expecting different results is just not smart.
