    So did anyone else notice that Obama and the Dems for 10 years said the Bush Tax Cuts were only for the Rich, and did nothing for our Economy, But now that they might all expire all of the sudden they are saying the bottom 98% would be devastated if the Bush tax cuts that were only for the Rich Are allowed to Expire.

    Just sayin.

    lol

    This is why I have so little respect for die Hard Liberals in life and on this Board. They are so hypocritical, so intellectually Dishonest. Which is it Hacks, Were the Bush tax cuts only for the Rich, and not good for our Economy? Or were they for everyone, and even the lower Brackets benefited from them?

    Very good point you have just ended the debate since those tax cuts did nothing for the poor and middle class and only helped the rich no reason not to let them all expire well done.:clap2::clap2::clap2:

    Not sure anyone is using such apocalyptic language on the left but tax cuts are stimulative if that money gets spent right away on TVs, refrigerators, restaurants, food and gas, it's like throwing it in the trash if it gets hoarded by a billionaire. Is this concept too complicated?

    What do you think they do...stuff the money in their mattress?...bury it in mason jars behind the pool house?

    Of course not.

    At a minimum it is put on deposit and lent out by banks.

    At a maximum it is invested as venture capital into new businesses that buy brick lumber land equipment, hire contractors, plumbers, architects, laborers, surveyors, heavy equipment operators, truckers, electricians, decorators, crane operators, painters...and that's just to build or renovate...then the buy lots of new equipment, hire employees, purchase inventory, subcontract logistics, warehouse and contract transportation....

    That's the reason I've been saying let them all expire, it will out Maobama and the commiecrats for the liars they are. The republicans can use the same line the commies have been, they didn't raise taxes, the rates were only temporary, because the dems refused to make them permanent. Just put the blame where it actually belongs.

    Yep, we let them expire and we'll see how many they saved, won't we? Remember the standard is created or saved now.

    Looks like another one who is unaware of that giant sucking sound of money being hoarded and hidden by America's wealthy and the big banks keeping vast amounts locked up in reserve rather than lending it out. These people do not need you to defend them from the bad old socialists, they have trillions in the Caymans to sooth their fragile feelings.

    The tax cuts benefited everyone at the expense of bigger federal deficits. That being said, the wealthy benefited the most. The only reason they are only pushing to raise taxes on the wealthy is that the middle class and lower income earners have taken a much bigger hit financially than the wealthy. Once the economy gets moving again and wages begin to rise, I would expect that we would see the rest of the tax cuts rescinded also. While raising taxes on just the wealthy will not bring in massive amounts of revenue, it is a start in the right direction to getting us on a better balance sheet.
