    For years Democrats lied about the effects of the Bush tax-cuts.

    I guess their supporters aren't about to make them pay a price for that bold-faced lie.

    Will any of you admit now that they were lying or are you going to ignore it?

    I wonder what is taking the Republican House so long to pass an extension for the Bush tax cuts for the middle class.

    I guess their printer must be broken.

    I've never heard of anyone who said they didn't benefit, tax-wise, from the Bush tax cuts - unless their income was too low to pay taxes.

    I think they're looking for a compromise...

    What percentage of total income do the top two percent earn?

    What percentage of total income tax do the top two percent pay?

    The Heritage Foundation is a conservative think tank whose mandate is to produce position papers to promote conservative values. Hardly an unbiased source.

    The Bush tax cuts are a very large part of the reason that 47% pay no income taxes.
