Wrong. 1. Taxes will go up 5% for people making $250K and above 2. Federal revenue will increase 3. Defense spending should be cut since we outspend everyone else combined 4. Jobs are being added every month 5. Medicare solvency has been extended by the $716 billion it won't have to pay out 6. Doctors will be much busier since everyone will be covered by health insurance and can afford to see a doctor 7. Massive job growth ahead as the economy recovers from the last Republican reign of error

Actually, taxes will go up on everyone by 5-8% on Jan 1-True. The increase in Cap Gains tax will increase Fed revenue for 1-2 years-until they find another investment vehicle for that money(tax-free bonds for example). As defense spending is cut massively, the contractors will have no choice but to trim their workforce, thus putting many professionals and tradesmen into a market that cannot absorb them. Medicare will continue its downward spiral-the only part that was controllable was the Advantage program, and it is headed for the trash heap. The doctors who will be so busy will be the ones accepting the new "rate" they can charge(Econ 101-supply & demand. More patients+fewer docs-higher prices, not lower). Massive job growth? Only the IRS

You are so wrong. There is already a tax in place on your home as of this year to help pay for obama care not counting the new tax burded of being forced to buy health insurance. Jobs are being added every month but at 1970 wage rates. Yes we really are better off, not.

Not shockingly, immediately after President Obama was reelected for a second term, his administration reinforced its support for the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty [ATT], also known as the "Small Arms Treaty." Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been expressing full support of the treaty on behalf of the United States for years now while for political reasons, President Obama sat back. Now, the entire administration will be out front in support of ratifying it.

Hours after U.S. President Barack Obama was re-elected, the United States backed a U.N. committee's call on Wednesday to renew debate over a...
