    Succinct article in the Post today.

    Well said - the Democrats' attacks on the top 2-3% will inevitably result in hundreds of thousands of lost jobs - perhaps more. Tax revenues will then decline, and the recession will persist far longer than if a more incentive based stimulus package had been passed. Not only is Obama raising the top rate back to nearly 40%, but by eliminating long-standing deductions for this group, as well as raising the Social Security tax rates, the combined changes are nearing an overall total of 50% in increased taxes. This far surpasses the tax rates of the Clinton era.

    The Leftists are over-reaching - big time, and the middle class will inevitably suffer for it.

    Remember your precious Trickle Down Theory was once called the Horse and the Sparrow theory.

    Your side doesn't change. Kiss up to the rich and thank them for everything.

    Forget the middle class that makes this nation run. The middle class are the engine of the economy, the rich are just the fucking whistle.

    There will always be those who fall for this crap from the aristrocracy.:cuckoo:

    Your use of profanity reduces not only your arguement but your character.

    Please refrain from doing so and I will be happy to consider your views.

    So with that being said, please explain how Obamanomics are helping this nation's middle class, both in the short and long term.

    Thank you!

    poor sods...thinking taxing the uber rich is bad...lol...don't even realize you've been brain washed.

    "his theory claims that governments have three ways in which they control people: decision-making power, non decision-making power and ideological power. Decision-making power is the most public of the three faces and is the manner in which governments want to be seen: the power of governments to make policy decisions after widespread consultation with opposition parties and the wider public. Non decision-making power is the power that governments have to control the agenda in debates and make certain issues (such as the possible merits of Communism in the United States) unacceptable for discussion in moderate public forums. the third and most important face of power is ideological power, which is the power to influence people's wishes and thoughts and make them want things opposed to what would benefit them," such as worker's supporting a universal health care or taxing the rich.
