American, instead of emoting, why don't you learn first?
A. there was no financial meldown betwen 2001 to 2008 we had 52 months of continual grown, at least until 2007 Democrat took over
B. The reason why GOP doesn't want to raise taxes is because we are in recession, and because we need revenu INCREASE not decreased... I realize that you don't understand economy, but when you raise income taxes people change behavior.
C. Doing the wrong thing is not "do nothing" it is destructive. It is far better doing nothing than do things that destroy.
So learn first, emote later. It is amazing to me just how incredibly quick to attack Liberals are, but how little they understand.
