Tax Returns: A Comprehensive Assessment of the Bush Administration's Record on Cutting Taxes
The very well-off have been big winners on two fronts. They secured enormous gains in income in the 1980s and 1990s. They now are receiving extremely large tax cuts as a result of the 2001 and 2003 tax-cut measures. The Congressional Budget Office provides the most comprehensive data available on recent changes in incomes and taxes for different income groups; these CBO data cover years from 1979 until 2001. Just-released CBO data show:
The average after-tax income of the top one percent of the population more than doubled over this period, rising from $294,300 in 1979 to $703,100 in 2001, an increase of $408,800.(CBO adjusted these figures for inflation and expressed them in 2001 dollars.) This represents an increase of 139 percent.
By contrast, the average after-tax income of the households that make up the middle fifth of the U.S. population rose $6,300, or 17 percent, during this period. And the average after-tax income of the poorest fifth of households rose $1,100, or only eight percent.
In combination with data on before-tax income from a study issued by the National Bureau of Economic Research, these CBO data indicate that before-tax income was more concentrated at the top of the income scale in 2001 than at any time in the previous 65 years (i.e., back to 1936), except for the years from 1997-2000.
The pattern continues in 2004. The President’s budget proposes to make permanent every tax-cut provision enacted in 2001 and 2003 that predominately benefits people with high incomes. But the budget fails to extend — and thus would let die after 2006 — the provision of the 2001 tax-cut law that encourages greater retirement saving by working families with incomes under $50,000.

again, someone attacks Obama despite the facts.
i'm about to the point of just starting to call everyone of you on that BS. all i get are suppositions and non-facts when i present facts. why is that Eman? you're one of the smart folks around here. enlighten my dumb 'liberal' ass please.
i'm more of a conservative than any one of you. real conservatives don't deal in BS. they see the truth, and then tell it like it is. go on over to The American Conservative to see how it really should be. become one of the enlightened ones'.
I have a question. Do you even read the crap you post? Because if you did (oh I forgot you're a libtard so you can comprehend what you read) you would see that, mostly, it refutes what you are trying to say.

"The Muslim Brotherhood was founded in Egypt in 1928 by a 22 hear old Muslim named Hassan al-Banna, who admired Adolf Hitler's hatred of the Jews and persistently wrote to Hitler to his admiration for Hitler and desire for collaboration with Hitler's Nazi Party."

"When Hitler rose to power his Nazis supported al-Banna, who was a school teacher, to grow the Muslim Brotherhood into its ally in the Middle East; by 1938 membership of the Muslim Brotherhood had topped 200,000."

"During World War II, members of the Muslim Brotherhood spied for Hitler's Nazi's in the Middle East and fought as Hitler's Nazi troops in two specially formed Muslim Waffen-SS Handshar Divisions (handshar is the German for scimitar, the curved saber used by the Muslim troops of the Ottoman Empire.

And you thought I was crazy for comparing now to 1938 huh?

May 9, 2012 – POLITICO; Evolve: Obama gay marriage quotes ...“I have been to this point unwilling to sign on to same-sex marriage primarily because of my ...
Craig Shirley, a conservative activist and the author of two books about the Reagan revolution, is convinced that self-proclaimed conservatives have undermined their own cause by attempting to use the federal government to address social issues.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, he said, should never have pushed for enactment of the Defense of Marriage Act:“it was wrong, it was the federalization of social policy.”

The Republican Party has begun to move to the left on social and cultural issues, as well as on immigration. Despite the warnings of mass defections of white evangelical and born-again Christians, these shifts will not be as costly as some people, both inside and outside the party, claim.

The fact is that on pretty much every noncultural issue – government spending, taxes, the regulatory state and national defense – the Christian right holds orthodox Republican views virtually identical to those of mainstream Republicans. Its members are unlikely to bolt the party.

Take a look at this Pew Center chart, Figure 1.

The constituency most convinced that “government regulation of business usually does more harm than good,” a core tenet of the modern Republican Party, is white evangelical Christians:

Or, take Figure 2. The Christian right tops everyone in its conviction that “the best way to ensure peace is through military strength.”

Finally, just about everyone (see Figure 3) says they are patriotic, but who tops the list?

In other words, the Republican Party can afford to marginalize Tony Perkins and other Christian right leaders because evangelical social conservatives, who make up more than a third of the Republican electorate, are not going to vote Democratic. Nor are they going to join an exodus to a third party. Rush Limbaugh to the contrary, they won’t stay home either.

Minimal losses among these voters could be made up for by slight gains among other constituencies like young voters, minorities and single white women.

Withdrawing full-throated support for the religious right (for example, by altering the anti-abortion plank of the 2012 Republican Party platform, which called for a constitutional amendment banning abortion without exception for victims of rape or incest or to save the life of the mother) may be a gamble – and may cost the party donors — but at the moment the Republican Party holds a losing hand.

Oppressed Christians and Second-Class Citizenship

Having people tell you you're wrong may not be fun, but it doesn't make you oppressed.

With all this talk of gay people marrying one another, some people on the right are starting to bleat about how they're being oppressed for their Christian beliefs—so oppressed, in fact, that they're starting to feel like "second-class citizens." Here's CBN's David Brody lamenting the sorrows of Kirk Cameron and Tim Tebow. Here's Red State's Erik Erikson predicting the coming pogrom ("Within a year or two we will see Christian schools attacked for refusing to admit students whose parents are gay. We will see churches suffer the loss of their tax exempt status for refusing to hold gay weddings. We will see private businesses shut down because they refuse to treat as legitimate that which perverts God’s own established plan."). Here's Fox News commentator Todd Starnes on the oppression that has already begun ("it’s as if we’re second-class citizens now because we support the traditional, Biblical definition of marriage"). And how is this second-class citizenship being thrust upon them back in the real world? Well, people are ... strongly disagreeing with their position on an issue of public concern! It's awful, I tell ya.

The impulse to jam that crown of thorns down on your head is a powerful one in politics. It means you've achieved the moral superiority of the victim, and the other side must be the victimizer. The problem is that these folks don't seem to have much of a grasp on what second-class citizenship actually looks like. Last time I checked, nobody was forbidden to vote because they're a Christian, or not allowed to eat in their choice of restaurants, or forced to use separate water fountains, or even be forbidden by the state to marry the person of their choice. That's what second-class citizenship is. Having somebody on television call your views retrograde may not be fun, but it doesn't make you a second-class citizen.

Of course, they say, "Just you wait." But these fantasies of oppression are just that, fantasies. One of their favorite scare stories is that before you know it, Christian ministers are going to be hauled off to jail or have their churches lose their tax-exempt status if they refuse to marry gay people. Right, just like at the moment a Jewish synagogue will lose its tax-exempt status if the rabbi won't preside over a Pentecostal wedding. And as for the florist who refuses to sell flowers to a gay couple, what he's asking for is not a right but a privilege, the privilege to discriminate based on sexual orientation. It's no different than if he refused to sell flowers to an interracial couple. But somehow, if he finds justification for that discriminatory practice in his faith, that's supposed to make it a fundamental right.

I'm more than happy to admit that in certain circles, it's more acceptable to be gay than to be an evangelical Christian. That's what Chief Justice Roberts was getting at when he noted during the oral arguments about DOMA that "political figures are falling all over themselves" to endorse gay marriage, and thus gay people don't qualify as a disfavored minority. But what we're talking about here isn't attendance at fashionable Upper West Side parties, it's discrimination under the law. That's what makes you a second-class citizen. It's what gay people live with now, and it's something that is never, ever going to happen to Christians, no matter how bad some of them may feel when people tell them they're wrong.

The one's we should be concerned with are those that are misinformed.

They get their information from Conservative Tall Radio & Fox.

They are the ones that keep electing the same people that neartly killed this country under Bush.

Boehner, Cantpr, McConnell, Ryan, Toomey - all your heroes. Even though they were voting yes yes yes for & still support the exact same policies that created the mess we are in.

Yes, We are afraid of the Flacktards of this country. The one that actually think they know sh*t but in reality, don't know squat.

On his radio show this week, conservative talker Mark Levin said that Fox News host Bill O’Reilly, who on Tuesday claimed that opponents of same-sex marriage do nothing but “thump the Bible,” should stop degrading his audience.

“Thump the Bible?” Levin asked.“Have I thumped the Bible once in an hour and a half on the air today?… Why are you putting down your audience? I thought you stood for the folks. And you sound like [President Barack] Obama, with the ‘clinging to their guns and religion’ line. You should show respect to your audience.”

Levin reminded his listeners of O’Reilly’s 2007 book,“Culture Warrior,” in which the Fox News host decried what he said were progressive values intruding on traditional cultural norms.
