SOooo... ...adding to the deficit by borrowing more money that we don't have is a better idea? ...renevues are down since Nance Pelosi/Harry Reid took over. Hmm, what about the years before that? Renevue were... come on you can say it... ...profits for corporation are up? So, what do you care? It their money? If you don't like the profits they make--don't buy their iPhone--I'm mean--products. Profits? they pay taxes on it. What are you complaining about? Well, unless you are a pal of Obama's and run the outsourcing GE company. Then you don't have to pay corp taxes.
Wikipedia: According to Black's Law Dictionary, a tax is a "pecuniary burden laid upon individuals or property owners to support the government [...] a payment exacted by legislative authority." It "is not a voluntary payment or donation, but an enforced contribution, exacted pursuant to legislative authority" and is "any contribution imposed by government [...] whether under the name of toll, tribute, tallage, gabel, impost, duty, custom, excise, subsidy, aid, supply, or other name." I don't see redistribution in that. Just because _a_ Republican supports what you think is redistributionist doesn't make your point any more valid.
Unfortunately, Becca, yes he does. Don't cha know, you didn't build that. You won life's lottery and now they have to take it from you, because you won't share. That is until you retire. Yes, you could have been living off your frugal savings, but then rauljg69 won't get his cut. The good news is rauljg69 will enslave someone else to pay you. Well, a greatly reduced live style--you know because of the poor. (BTW, good for you and your husband for making $250k+. I make significantly less, but I work for those who do make that much. Thank God they do, otherwise I won't have a job.)
Wait. How come those making $250K are rich? When did that happen? I thought it was millionaires and billionaires. (Sarcasm off.) What is so magic about $250K? Why is that the cut off point, just because Obama said it is? And you do know, that those that make over that much will mysteriously start making $249,999.99? Don't cha? $80 billion, pffft. They get about a quarter of that. Idiots. Static modeling, it the junior high approach to economics.
Even the so called "Bush Tax Cuts" pulled us out of the nose dive than was caused by the financial damage of 9-11. It works so well, that most people have forgotten that.
Even Obama believed it, once: In August 2009, on a visit to Elkhart, Indiana to tout his stimulus plan, Obama sat down for an interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd, and was conveyed a simple request from Elkhart resident Scott Ferguson: “Explain how raising taxes on anyone during a deep recession is going to help with the economy.” Obama agreed with Ferguson’s premise – raising taxes in a recession is a bad idea. “First of all, he’s right. Normally, you don’t raise taxes in a recession, which is why we haven’t and why we’ve instead cut taxes. So I guess what I’d say to Scott is – his economics are right. You don’t raise taxes in a recession. We haven’t raised taxes in a recession.”
Uh, that rating include the Senate you nimwit. So the Senate block the "partisan" bill and blames the Republicans. Hmm, Sound like the old "I'm rubber, you're glue." argument.
If it is such a deal breaker, then bring the vote to the Senate floor, have the democrats vote it down and then you can start to negotiate it with member of the House. Hmmm, been working for 200+ years, why did you libbys stop the process now? ...BUT, you know what you said is a lie (or to lazy to find out the facts.) Dingy Harry is worried that THEY MIGHT ACTUALLY PASS. Or at least make the democrats look bad (well worst than normal) if they vote them down. Good try, but we aren't one of your echo chamber pals...
Good come back on ONE of the FOUR points he made. (NOT!) Obama supported the extension last year because, as Obama said: you can't raise taxes when the economy is so bad. Well, all indications say it is the same or worst now than last time Obama extended the CURRENT tax rates, et. al. You do remember _that_ don't you. (Probably not, doesn't fit your myopic world view.) So, yeah. Obama was for it, before he was against it, before he was for it, before he was against it--Man his flip flops are so numerous its no wonder that it is so hard for you to know what his positions are/have been. BTW, any comment on the other three points he made? No. Figures.
Really. The only racist are trolling democrats. Just like all of those racist signs at the Tea Party. ..and how was that evil human a conservative. Oh yeah, all conservative are evil, so he must have been too. Funny how most of these killer spew left wing rhetoric.
