    It seems like everything they do eventually ends up leading to possible tax increases.

    Overweight kids may even lead to it. I'm not kidding!!!

    They've spent us into so much debt...on purpose....just so they can pass more tax increases.

    But why do they always seem to do this?

    They've been dreaming up ways of increasing our taxes for decades and all it ends up doing is pissing people off. So they've made it popular in some circles to raise our taxes to pay for all of the wonderful things they've implemented.


    Truth is Democrats can't help it. The only way they know how to gain power is by making us beholding to them.

    So if you think about it logically they really don't want us to be able to live without them.

    What better way to do this then to take away our independence....or in other words...take away most of our income.

    Discuss.

    It is a control issue, not a money issue. If it were a money issue, we wouldn't have a capital gains tax

    It's not that liberals love tax increases, it's that they understand the reality that you would have to be either hopelessly insane or stupid to the point of "drooling idiot" to believe that you could cut taxes during a time a war.

    Know anyone who did that? Yes, two presidents. But for entirely different reasons.

    The first one did it to give his friends money.

    The second one did it to get enough support to save the economy.

    The first one is unforgivable.

    The second one is understandable.

    Nobody ever cut taxes to give their friends money.

    It's called..."Letting everyone keep their own money"

    Now...there's a case that can be made quite easily that raising taxes can be accused of "Taking money from one group and giving it to your friends"

    The answer to why liberals in Washington love tax increases comes down to a simple matter of jobs. Their own. I look at it as their abuse of a progressive tax system for their own empowerment. This system allows for them to parade one "feel good" social program after another to the voters, the vast majority of which will give little consideration to their costs.

    Power-lust! Benevolence has nothing to do with their Marxist agenda. Only power and control over the lives of those they try to reduce to slaves of a new order....

    So we've got a real or imagined perception that Bush handed out cash to the oil industry yet we see Obama handing out cash to unions, foreign countries, and anyone with an axe to grind with the US.

    What is the difference?

    The difference is that what was claimed before was just a setup to what is going on now.

    The difference is the purpose wasn't to be fair...but to improve the economy...where as now it's just paybacks, bribes, and showing favoritism.

    Republican voters refuse to accept cuts to Social Security, Medicare or defense. They make up the lion's share of the budget. How do you intend to pay for those things? More debt? At some point you have to face the fact that these things are widely demanded by Republicans.
