    Here is the truth, 1% of the population received 25% of all the income. The majority of all money not collected due to these tax cuts is spread over the top 10% of Americans, and that has cost us 3 trillion dollars over the last 10 years with absolutely nothing to show for it except republicans saying that it somehow was supposed to create jobs. While at the same time these very same people of money have sent more jobs overseas to third world countries with low pay and no benefits and no environmental restrictions.
    Now they complain about health care and what it might cost but didn't flicker an eye lid at giving away 5 trillion in tax cuts so far and another 7 trillion to come, that our children will have to pick up. And the TEA PARTY express is helping them do it.


    ("Citizens for Tax Justice point out what I was saying just the other day: We only hear all this crying and moaning about the deficit when it's something for regular working people, and not a powerful lobby. And of course, the Republican's are right out there in front of the Hypocrisy Parade:

    And yet, many of the lawmakers who argue that the health care reform legislation is “too costly” are the same lawmakers who supported the Bush tax cuts.

    Their own voting record demonstrates that health care reform is not a matter of costs, but a matter of priorities.

    It’s difficult to see how the Bush tax cuts could provide us with two and a half times the benefits of health care reform. In 2010, when all the Bush tax cuts are finally phased in, a staggering 52.5 percent of the benefits will go to the richest 5 percent of taxpayers.

    President Bush and his supporters argued that these high-income tax cuts would benefit everybody because they would unleash investment that would spark widespread economic prosperity. There seems to be no evidence of this, particularly given the collapse of the economy at the end of the Bush years.

    The tax legislation enacted under President George W. Bush from 2001 through 2006 will cost $2.48 trillion over the 2001-2010 period.")

    wake up america before we really do have to take up guns to protect the working (POOR) class.

    The CBO says that 'Obamacare' will save us one trillion dollars over the next 20 years. That is a reduction of the deficit tea partiers.

    So what?

    Oh yeah? How's that exactly?

    The Republicans didn't give anything away. What are you talking about?


    How are these two things relevant?


    Is that what they were supposed to do?

    I
    Naturally. They pay most of the taxes.

    I saw plenty of evidence of it.

    Cost who?

    It appears we have woken up (at least for now) and have rejected your argument above that is based on nothing more than your jealousy, envy, and greed.

    do you think they really want to hear that or for that matter really believe anything that doesn't come out of RUSH L. or Hanity.
    You know its costing us 200 million a day and we have 36 battleships deployed so bush could go to India over creating Jobs.
    I mean just listen to the big mouths on the right, I saw no less than 10 big name righty's repeating the same crap only making it a larger more stupid lie than it was before.
    Tea Party people were about hard working Americans fighting the greed of a foreign govt. Now they are fighting to keep greed alive in the upper class of wealthy Americans, even though 90% of them are middle class people who can't think for themselves.

    The only thing the RepubliCONs offer to create jobs (remember when they pretended to be concerned about jobs so they could win an election?) is to make the Bush tax cuts permanent. Thus putting our budget permanently out of balance. To follow this "logic", if you are having a hard time keeping up with your bills, ask your employer for a pay cut!

    By the way, if the Bush tax cuts will create jobs, why aren't there any jobs being created now? The tax cuts are in effect now and have been for ten years, yet this policy and other RepubliCON "ideas" led to the biggest recession since the Great Depression.

    It's like I said, your incapable of understanding anything that doesn't come out of RL AN Hanity.
    Where you use the majority of americas resouces to make your money and act like it's your right for the rest of us to pay for that, then your nuts pal.

    It takes more than you or any one person to create wealth. You think that because you live on a lake you can all the fish you want for whatever purpose and its everyone's job to replenish that lake.
    Everything I have written is the truth, and your stupid belief that we all owe you the right to become filty rich on our backs, using everything WE ALL created and paid for and you owe nothing back is PURE REPULICAN BS.

    What is putting the budget permanently out of balance is too much spending and too much government overreaching.

    There's no logic to that at all and doesn't even apply to this discussion. Using analogies is not one of your strengths. You probably should stop.

    Gee, I don't know, did you miss that whole mortgage default crisis?
