    I feel guilty about eating fast food about once a month, and am hoping if Obama raises taxes, I won't be able to buy a Big Mac.

    ahh the only tax I want raised is the one on weed after they legalize it.
    I know my liberal brothers will hate on me, but I'd like them to do it when they pay what the average Joe makes in taxes first.

    The main and only reason is...to PAY for everything that Bush didn't during the last 8 years.

    Raising taxes loses jobs. If a business owner pays more in taxes he has less topay his help. If a business owner has to pay more taxes he has to charge more for his goods and services.
    If government has more revenue they expand and hire more people that need more $ that demand more tases that need more people that need more taxes that need more people that need more taxes thagt need more people that need more taxes.
    People, not corporations, pay taxes. All a corporation EVER does is collect the taxes in increased prices.

    That's funny. I assume we'll have to pay for Obama's deficits too?

    Regardless of party or who's to blame, the fact is that the government (meaning Congress which is the branch that actually controls taxes) is going to have to raise taxes, reduce spending, and probably inflate money to have anyhope of balancing the budget, much less reducing the national debt.

    And Bush did not pay for those things becuase the people did not expect him to or want him to.
    Personal responsibility.

    Or....

    You can sit around every day waiting for things to happen and complain when they dont come knocking on your door with your chicken for your pot.

    Get with the program. It is easier to do for yourself than to wait for others to do it for you.


    And...

    It is WAY more rewarding.

    I have seen way nmore success stories by those that have done for themselves than I have by those that have things done for them.

    I want my fellow Americans to be happy. One is happy when they earn. One feels success. One feels reward.

    All I ever see from those that take is shame and embarrassment in their face. THAT saddens me.

    Sorry. I do not fall for that..."If you dont want to give then you must hate them".

    I give them plenty. I give them the opportunity to earn. Sadly, many prefer taking instead.
