Good grief! Liberals must all have a genetic defect that makes them unable to do simple math. I've been saying it for months: Raising taxes and leaving businesses and people with *less* money will not encourage more consumer spending (and hence, demand for goods) and will not result in an increase in jobs. In fact, increases in business expenses means prices will rise, which hits demand and consumer spending even more. How can they not understand this? WHere do they think all the money to pay for this garbage will come from?

The democrat mindset doesn't include the PRIVATE SECTOR economy--you know...the one that creates jobs--ergo, your correct assessment goes right over their heads.

The democrat (read: "totalitarian") politicians pander to the dumb hacks out there who are dependent upon government. To them, government provides literally EVERYTHING--government practically inflates their lungs with air.

Democrat-totalitarians will never concede your obviously factual statement--it runs counter to their greed for power. If they can continue to be seen as the "Sugar Daddy" to all the governmentally-dependent, they will continue to win--for now.

Eventually, our economy will be so hobbled that even democrat-totalitarians won't be able to hide the symptoms.

Certainly worse at Math than I am and I am pathetic. The truth is that I am so scared of what Obama & Obamacare is going to do that I have stopped spending any money I don't need to spend. No luxuries this year and I am going to inform all but family, no Christmas gifts. They are talking about taxing only the "rich" ... so, do you believe them?
I don't. They will have to raise taxes ON everyone sooner or later - t hey can't spend trillions yearly and not come down to our income level... that and policies like destroying the coal industry will effect the price of electricity... add to that, Gas prices... its best to hold on to what I have.
Better lean than hungry.

The ingnoramuses are exactly the reason we are stuck with another 4 year of incompetent governing.

The most expensive tax in the history of the world has been proposed by the Obama administration and to hear them tell the story, you’d think the rest of us should be grateful.

“We want to create a global minimum tax,” said vice president Joe Biden, “because American taxpayers shouldn’t be providing a larger subsidy for investing abroad than investing at home.”

A global minimum tax is a tax on all profits made by nominally US companies that operate overseas. They operate overseas for various reasons, but one big reason is because corporate taxes are higher in...
