    By all means. Lets raise taxes in this sucky economy. That will fix everything.

    I'm sure once that happens the economy will take off. UE will fall to 5% and we'll all be in super duper shape.

    This guy really needs to catch a damned clue. Jeeze.

    Carvels right. This guy needs to fire whoever is advising him. These guys suck big time.

    Yeah. We need to leave them alone. They've had tax-cuts going on 10- years. Cuts to programs for the elderly & children are way to go :doubt: :clap2:

    Call me selfish, but I'm ok with tax hikes on anybody other than me. :D

    This man is utterly clueless.

    He has 3 separate proposals with the same tax hikes in all of them. He just can't form any other ideas for our country. Talk about a one track minded simpleton.

    Spend less... get those not paying federal income taxes actually paying some, if not equalizing the tax rate on every dollar across the board... spend even less... cut more programs/agencies... spend less.. get the bottom line down and use the huge amount we already pay in taxes like it is supposed to be used and not some charity gambit

    Cut funds to programs for the elderly and children. Its the Conservative way :) It ought to balance the books in say 50-75 yrs. Millionaires & Billionaires .....errr......I mean "job creators" (latest GOP talking-point) are going through a difficult time dontcha' know. :(
