    control of curriculum and federalized standards.

    ► A carbon tax on utilities.

    ► A special windfall profits tax on oil companies to
    subsidize renewable energy projects.

    ► Expunging criminal records of many felons.

    ► Socializing the private credit-scoring system used
    by banks, insurers and employers.

    ► Socializing lending to small businesses.

    ► Higher taxes, including a value-added tax, on the
    middle class for new transfer payments for the poor.

    ► Suing towns to force public-housing integration of
    the suburbs.

    ► Bolstering the Community Reinvestment Act.

    ► Packing the the Supreme Court with leftists.

    thank God for Grover Norquist! Most expect Republicans to pick up seats in House and Senate in which case Barry won't get what he wants: socialism and much higher taxes.

    We've been told it's patriotic to pay taxes...well, except for Obama's cabinet, apparently.

    a personal attack against a guy not here to defend himself is a waste, and perfectly liberal.

    As a liberal you will lack the IQ to say something substantive in support of liberalism.
