    Yea raise taxes on everyone making over $6K a year! Great move! That will help the economy and unemployment. :evil:

    Word to stupid, the Daily Show is a fake news show. He is a comedian and a damn good one. If you take it seriously, like most liberals do (the prime reason liberal news stations and radio shows do so poorly, is because liberals don't watch the news and rather get their news from the Daily Show and Colbert Report), they your an idiot!

    If Republicans are so worried about the deficit monster, why extend the Bush Tax Cuts? Unless they never cared about the deficit in the first place and won't once they get into office this fall. :eusa_think:

    So the Republicans are Keynesians? :eek:

    Jon Stewart made a humorous but damn truth point about the deficit. This is the deficit:

    according to Richard Nixon....

    my point is, the Left wants these tax cuts to expire, when they love to rip on Hoover for raising taxes in the face of economic turmoil and applaud Keynes.

    Hoover raised taxes not nearly as much as what's being proposed however. I'm sure you know the rough percentages, as do I.

    Quite true, but neither do the Democrats, and they prove it every time they open their mouths.
