    If the bulk of the additional tax revenue goes towards debt repayment, I don't see a problem. I'd rather pay now then pay later. Especially since it's immoral to pass on our debts to the next generation. THANKS BUSH AND REAGAN! WANKERS.

    Based on what? I don't remember tax cuts being the solution to the depression. If tax cuts are always the solution then we should just keep cutting taxes.... but they are not always the solution... tax cuts have zero effect if there is no demand. Moreover, recessions always bring about reduced taxes by default, as everyone is making less (hence revenue shortfalls, hence budget deficits)..... people are far more worried about revenues and operating profits than taxes, which only effect people that have operating profits.

    Conservative logic says that tax cuts are the solution to everything. Don’t try to question it with your “liberal” logic unless you’re willing to eat flurry of ad hominems.

    Not quite. Stupid Republican logic says that. Actual Conservative logic dictates that tax cuts are useful tools indeed, but hardly applicable every where.

    For instance, would it be intelligent to issue a tax cut to a hyperinflationary economy boosting the supply of money? No. That would be utterly retarded.

    Remember that a great many self proclaimed Conservatives here are really just social conservative Republicans who don't actually know a damn thing about economics.

    Sadly, it will not matter. Of course, we need a lot less government and more of our own money in our pockets but, oh well.

    So.

    How many foolish people out there are going to say "I don't make $250,000, why should I care"?

    I see probably three, those that voted "yes".

    I guess they don't understand that if they're not making a pile of money, they're working for someone who does, or their business is dependent on people who work for someone who's rich.

    Taxes destroy, they don't create.

    That's why the Democrats love taxes so much.

    Taxes didn't cause the Depression, the Federal Reserve did.

    FDR didn't cure the Depression, Hirohito and Hitler did. FDR kept the Depression going long enough to allow the two H's their chance to fix things.

    However, in this day and age, exceptionally high taxation IS a serious problem, and tax cuts WILL create real, private sector, economic growth.

    Under the Messiah's plan, if you're willing to either intrude into private homes and ask unconstitutionally nosy questions, or simply fake up some forms, you can be part of 95% of the job growth in May. Otherwise, ain't no jobs being created with a trillion dollars of wasted pork.

    Absolutely NO REASON at all to be raising taxes when the government is wasting money on phony "stimulus" slush funds that have no measurable effect on the economy. It's completely indefensible.

    ARGH!

    how is that doing anything good for anyone!

    Eightth post, and Godwin's Rule is invoked by the Left already.

    Typical.

    BTW, is was Clinton in 1993 that gave his podium pounding "no no no no no no no no" speech when the Republicans refused to assist in his attempt to rape the Republic.

    Obviously the government should do nothing about the cause of the deficits, the spending, it should just tax until it matches spending.

    That spending historically rises faster than revenue and thus taxation can NEVER correct overspending is besides the point.
