    the GOP may have a hard time convincing their new tparty toddlers that they were supposed to be just kidding with all that election talk about budgets. grinding the budget axe in a lame recovery will be a spectacle in hypocrisy is my guess.

    I'm betting the Dimocrats will cave on doing away with the current rates on upper earners.

    Of course they will, it doesn't take a genius to figure out that taking more money out of the private sector will even further stifle growth and the notion that the budget deficit is because 2% of the population isn't paying enough taxes is a fool's folly.

    This idiotic class warfare shit has to stop.

    Once again you use the huffinton as a news source.

    Why?

    do you lack the ability to think or focus longer than a gerbil?

    How about instead of fucking over the whole economy and all Americans by fucking over the people that hire the rest of us.

    We cut government spending?

    There are lots and lots of things that can be cut or even closed down.

    But your small mind is forced, by the media you take as fact, to focus only on tax cuts.

    the republican gawdawful record on curtailing government spending seems to have some other people's media driven hopes crossed with reality, too.

    Hard to say that shat when greedy ashwipes from the private sector is pocketing the money and not creating jobs and investing it in the economy. Extending the tax cuts for those 2% will add 700 billion to the deficit, now the fack is that helping growth?

    So what your saying is we should raise taxes in an economic downtown to keep from losing revenue?

    You really don't know how economics works do you?

    Ok, lets say it is $700 billion in one year.

    That 700 comes from profit, that profit pays peoples wages, if those wages don't go up, b/c the person that pays them has less, the fed does not take in more taxes from those wage earners. if the wage earners income does not go up, they don't buy as much, causing the fed to loose more money. Since demand for products didn't go up, there is no reason to hire people to produce more, therefore the fed looses money and so do top earners.

    It's economics, not mathmatics. You are being focused only on the math. economics is vast and complicated.

    Raising taxes as some kind of revenge only fucks you over in the end.
