    Bush's problem was the housing bubble and crash, and he was not alone in starting it. If not for the housing crash, we would have continued to enjoy a great economy (which Bush had for most of his two terms) right into the McCain Presidency.

    You libs will never win a wealth/income inequality debate because you are on the side of mooching deadbeats who want to take money other people worked to earn. Humans instinctively know that's wrong.

    None of the waltons hold a position in Walmart. Most never have. What is your definition of working to earn?

    You didn't answer my question. So being born wealthy is your idea of working to earn?

    Do you want to steal your neighbor's kids bikes? Wait, that's not really a question.

    Good question

    Remove the historically low tax rates on the wealthy......they are not working
    Tax capital gains the same as income. Sweat based income should be taxed the same as investment income
    Tax stock trades
    Make healthcare costs tax free
    Provide free online college courses
    Increase low income health coverage

    Nope. You are ignoring my questions, why? Is being born wealthy your idea of working to earn?
