    Equality for all! Unless your a Democrat, who wants to not pay taxes, by shifting the burden to others. Your OP is wrong to begin with. You don't get a tax cut, if you are below the threshhold for paying.

    Just how long are we supposed to pay for people who haven't found work in two years?

    In some states they are, some they are not.

    And no, health care is not a free market in this country. It is nowhere remotely close and hasn't been for decades.

    That was stolen lock, stock and barrel from the dems, to take the issue off the table.

    That neocon repubs are spendaholics is no news flash.

    Personally, I'm really enjoying Obama lecture the country about how extending the tax cuts are now necessary to prevent a double dip recession (although if he really believed that, the extension would be permanent).

    HA!...You're the dweeb who asked whether or not I thought anyone should have their incomes taxed....If anyone has reframed the argument here, it's you....If anyone should be ashamed for such a flaccid projection, it's you.

    There are no tax cuts currently on the table...In fact, the current stupid "deal" involves a tax increase, with the reinstatement of the grave robbery that is the death tax.

    All that's being argued here, as it relates to income tax rates, is the continuance of the status quo.

    Not true. Bush passed two income tax reductions and a "prebate" all while fighting two unfunded wars. A first in american history.

    Bush ran up about 6 trillion in debt and in his final year left us with a deficit of well over a trillion dollars, perhaps as much as 1.5 trillion.

    In fact Bush more than doubled the debt of all other presidents in our history. All with GOP approval of course.

    "Fiscal conservatives". That is enough to bring down the house with hysterical laughter.

    False.
    The 2001 tax cut was passed pre-9-11.
    False.
    National debt 1-20-2001....$5,728B
    National debt 1-20-2009....$10,626B = $4,898B
    National debt now:............$13,846B = $3,220B
    So... in 2 years, The Obama ran up 65% of GWB's 8-year debt.
    False.
    As demostrated above, as well as...
    FY2008 FY2009
    Both budgets - those with the largest deficits - passed by a Dem-controlled Congress.
    The true humor comes from the fact that nothing you said has any basis in fact.
    But, that's what happens when your grasp of the subject is limited to the talking points you found in a DNC e-mail.

    If you cannot get the basic facts, straight, why should we take seriously anything else you might say?

    Bush signed the budgets; he gets the responsibility right along with the congresses from 2001.

    ...and if he didn't signed it...

    it would become law anyways.

    I guess he could have vetoed it, but then Congress could override that.

    You do have a point to your post right?
