    Here we go again with Bill Clinton double speak. Clinton LOWERED capital gains tax rates during his term as President--and it was Hillary that brought up the point to Barry--that when he did it--it actually brought in more tax revenue than leaving the tax rates high.

    I really don't understand Bill Clinton even walking up there to give a speech??? Bill Clinton HATES Barack Obama. He once stated that Obama would have been carrying his bags--he accused the Obama campaign of deliberately playing the RACE CARD on him--and both he and Hillary have called Obama an amateur.

    And then Bill Clinton stated this about Romney recently

    No. Can't be. When that rich guy wins, we are obviously not helped at all. Democrats say so. It must be true.

    No, because he sees it like it really is. When the middle class and lower income workers prosper and do better, then the wealthy do better. Trickle down never trickles down; it just makes the wealthy wealthier at the expense of the middle class and lower income workers.

    Just out of curiosity, how many more tax cuts do you think the wealthy will need before they decide to start creating a few more jobs for the rest of Americans?

    Nobody said that rich people are the only winners.
    Why do they have such a high suicide rate?

    No, since trickle down has shown to make just the top tier prosper. We all prosper when we help the middle class. The CEO from Costco, who spoke earlier and confirmed that it's the middle class that generates a strong economy.

    I guess you must of missed his speech and are checking the right wing blogs to see what you should think.

    Who's fucking winning under this president? Outside of wall street of course.

    First to seventh in economic competitiveness. This says something about his economic policies. They suck.

    -5k less income since he's been in office.
