    It still seems to me the best thing you can give an ailing economy is more jobs. Any policy that threatens that, such as raising taxes, oughta be ignored, at least until the economy recovers and unemployment gets back down below 7%. Spending more money just doesn't work.

    Just waiting for the dumb ass collectivist/wealth re distributor to come in trying to say that higher taxes equates to prosperity... trying, in a feeble attempt, to say that since 'tax rates on the wealthiest' were at one time 70+% (without recognizing that deductions, determinations of income etc were NOT the same) and the economy did not tank, that it means that higher taxes cause a bolstered economy

    It took 12 people?

    I would have guessed that three were enough.

    Meanwhile, corporations are racking up record pofits.

    Seems like Obamanomics is working for some.

    And that is your business, or Obama's? The Congress?

    Don't think so. You class warfare idiots really need to get a grip.

    Even actual evidence of the Epic Fail of Keynesianism, the Progressive Loons will blame it all on Capitalism and Free Markets.

    The longer that those comapnies stay afloat, the better off we are...that is until/IF Obama and the Statists raise taxes so high, they'll run those businesses offshore as well. (And then these leftwing idiots will further whine about it while NOT understanding WHY they left)...
