    The stereo-typical RWer wants to cut taxes and cut regulations and cut government but never suggests which taxes will be cut & the impact of such cuts; which regulations to eliminate and the impact of less oversight; and which government agencies to cut and the consequences of those cuts.

    Probably because such a RWer doesn't think of the consequences. It's the tea party mentality, simple solutions to complex problems, and exactly why I find the new right to be populated by simple simons and simple susans.

    In place of the usual personal attacks and idiotgrams is there anyone who plans to vote for a Sarah Palin type candidate whose considered the consequences? Or, as I suspect, is a vote for a tea party candidate nothing more than an emotional brain fart?

    1. Cut capital gains to 5%.

    2. No corporate income tax for the first 5 years of any new business

    Effect: GDP doubles in 5 years

    And watch infinite shell corporations prevent anyone from ever paying anything- not that they do as-is.

    How 'bout doing what we do for my and your income tax: make less than x and you're exempt (read: you get it back). Same effect for ma and pa, less potential for abuse

    Simple solution, which benefits the few. Unless you believe the profit generated will trickle down.
    Consider, corporate and industrial profits are today being used to influence elections more than in anytime past, not being used to hire the unemployed and expanding our economy. The spread between the wealthiest and the middle class is greater than at anytime but for the period before the '29 Crash.
    The average middle-class American doesn't pay capital gains, his/her investments are generally in IRA's which are taxed as ordinary income when taken as retirement income and tax free when invested in a Roth.
    Frank, you're not smart enough to be a wealthy person - unless you have inhertited wealth or are a drug dealer - so why do you believe what you believe?

    It's so hard to discuss economics with someone who learned about the private sector from reading "Das Kaiital" or Paul Krugman.

    I think it's pretty clear which of us has a grasp on the private sector and who has only lyrical knowledge about it.
