    Guess the tax cuts for the wealthy did not bring in anything but deficits.
    Georgia has been trying to do that for years. Successful lobbying from ALEC, the Koch Bros., and the like got us a constitutional amendment that caps the top state income tax bracket. Instead, our Republican legislature wants to raise taxes on the lower classes. So far, they haven't been able to succeed at screwing us this way. So far.

    I liked post 34- Pension problems. I think Illinois or Michigan has one of the worst??
    350M is a low amount, but what about unfunded programs?
    What cuts have been made to bring this down to 350M??
    The plan the Governor had in place with the original cuts, well that did not work.
    Myself I believe in a progressive tax system. Even in retirement I have a very good income.

    Yep, and they're going to have eleventyseven excuses for doing it too. Now just wait for Sean Hannity to start validating this crap. This is what you're going to have to look forward to with a right-wing government.

    The time to raise taxes is when the economy is doing well.

    Isn't the nut of all the left's arguments that the economy is doing well now?
