    I stand by my statement. Don't know what you are talking about.

    But I know what you are saying. And until Corporations pay zero taxes and middle class citizens pay all the taxes, you'll never stop.

    Just like anti abortion people. If they wanted to talk about lowering the number of unwanted pregnancies, we could work together, but they only want to ban all abortion, even in cases of rape.

    Too extreme.

    Zero taxes on corporations won't save us shit because the corporations will charge us as much as they can. Maybe they should consider maximizing profits when paying their ceo 10 million dollars.

    Explain how paying the CEO $10 million dollars on his way out the door is helpful to the corporation?

    So we should only manufacture in 3rd world countries, right?

    Explain how $100 billion in tax free loopholes for offshore companies is good for our economy. I'm sure you can, but you would be full of shit.

    And if Bush doubled the debt, how did he keep taxes down?

    And when is trickle down going to kick in?

    Cause conservative economic policies have been so successful over the past 30 years. The rich got richer, the poor got poorer and the economy is in the shitter right now. Get off your high horse. Trickle down economics have been a complete and utter failure, it can't hurt to try something else. Not saying democrats have all the answers, but I can guarantee Republicans don't. Reagan was a terrible detriment to our economy as a whole in the 80's and Bush has been just as bad in his two terms. All they have done is increase spending and cut the amount that the government takes in each year. Real smart economic policy.
