Ransom: Gosh I don’t know how those terrible Republicans under George W got so much tax revenue with the same tax rates Obama has. Got so much revenue? If W increased revenue so much with his tax cuts ... then explain why the national debt doubled during his terms in office? Explain why the Chinese are holding so much of our debt?

The government SPENDS (ie entitlements, foreign aid, bailouts, "green energy" failures etc) MORE THAN IT TAKES IN, COMPRENDE?
Now you will see that when you raise taxes on the so-called rich, they will fold up their tents and take their money elsewhere. There just aren't enough of those rich folks to go around , even if you take ALL of their money. See then they let their employees go and they don't have jobs and you can't take their employers money anymore and you have fewer people paying taxes period.
This administration is going to raise taxes on EVERYBODY, then it can give it to the people who don't work and don't pay any taxes. That's fair no?

Why no comment on Obama quadupling the debt, only about Bush.

Good Lord, Jimsd55, you are just as dumb as Claire McCaskill. Do you have your answer now? It's the spending, genius. Bush overspent and Congress was complicit. Do you foolishly still believe that the 2008 shellacking was all about Iraq? Try NCLB and Part D and total disregard for fiscal responsibility.

AFAIK,CONGRESS is the one doing the overspending.

Yes,Bush can veto,but Congress can override a veto.

OH MY GOSH JIMsd, What on earth! THE GOVERNMENT IS SPENDING MORE THAN WE TAKE IN.

It is so simple. Can't you just try to focus your little mind on that one fact.

Excellent reply Marie. The ignorance of the typical liberal can be so annoying at times. That would be those times when we mistakenly pay any attention at all to them!

Liberals can only repeat the talking points they are given. Doing their own research, well that just takes way too much effort.

The neocons do the thinking for the Republican leadership on all matters of strategy and morality in politics. Boehner wouldn't take a dump if the neocons told him not to, and if they told him to do so, he would strain for hours. Neocons want tax increases, because paying higher taxes is a sacrifice. Neocons believe that the little people have to be forced into sacrificing for the "collective self," i.e., the state, because that is the only way to preserve the social order. What they...
