    Shocker!!!!!!

    What happened to..... "Under my plan 95 percent of working Americans will get a tax cut." I guess he will have to scrub that from his website too... What a joke...

    As Denny Green would say (ex- AZ Cardinals coach) said.... "He is who we though he was."..... just a community organizer trying to run the biggest country in the world... Lucky us.

    Tax increases in a deflationary recession sounds like a terrible idea to me.

    I'll wait till the dust settles and we can actually see what changes have been made before I comment.

    Isn't it amazing that in time all lies have a way of showing their face? You know as well as I do, and so do the liberal Democrats, that their plan is always tax everybody and pass the loot out amoung the "faithful" sheep followers. They always think they know what is better for us then we know ourselves. It's right out of the Democrat handbook.:evil:

    We have a debt of three trillion for a war based on lies. We have a huge deficit because of a tax cut during that war. We had people with blinders on in the White House as the nation slid onto the precipice of another great depression.

    The logical thing, at this point, is to get the economy on the move again, then pay the debt. Yes, that will require a raise in taxes, on all of us. There is no other way for the government to get the money to pay the debt. When I was born, the top end tax rate was 99%. It would seem to me that in a nation that requires it's military people to fight and die in overseas wars that are unneccessary, we could all sacrifice a bit for the support of those people. However, all too many, especially the flag wavers on this board, think that support means tying a yellow ribbon around the nearest tree, and then avoiding paying anything at all in taxes.

    You are right when you say that we are in debt for a war based on lies. Did you know that we had Cash on a pallet sent over there and somehow.. it just disappeared? The only way to get back on track is what you said.. get the economy back on track and then worry about the debt. Otherwise..the economy will get into a bind. We also, however, cant spend our way out of debt. I dont know how hes gonna pull that one off.
