Republicans Try to Hide Study That Shows Tax Cuts for the Rich Spur Inequality

http://www.alternet.org/republicans-try-hide -...

The report, as ThinkProgress reported in September, found that tax cuts for the rich spurred income inequality , not economic growth.“There is not conclusive evidence, however, to substantiate a clear relationship between the 65-year steady reduction in the top tax rates and economic growth,” the report stated.“However, the top tax rate reductions appear to be associated with the increasing concentration of income at the top of the income distribution.”

Conservatives Are Seeing the Beginning of the End for Romney

One of the more popular conservative blogs is redstate.com . It is getting roughly the same traffic as this site (about a quarter of a million hits a day). The founder and chief cook and bottle washer, Erick Erickson, is way to the right of Rick Perry. During the run-up to the primaries he was wildly against Romney. On Nov. 8, 2011, he wrote an editorial that is definitely worth reading if you are interested in knowing what conservatives were thinking a year ago. In part, he wrote:

"Mitt Romney, on the other hand, is a man devoid of any principles other than getting himself elected. As much as the American public does not like Barack Obama, they loath a man so fueled with ambition that he will say or do anything to get himself elected. Mitt Romney is that man.

Funny when the victims of Katrina didn't follow evacuation orders they were to blame. Why the change of heart?
Bloomberg Orders MANDATORY EVACUATION Of All NYers In Zone A
Residents of Manhattan Beach, Brighton Beach and sections of Sheepshead Bay – as well as others living in Evacuation Zone A – are being ordered by city officials to evacuate to safer grounds as Hurricane Sandy approaches.
Approximately 250,000 people – in areas including the financial district of Manhattan, all of the Rockaways and huge swaths of Staten Island in additional to local Brooklyn coastal communities – are being required to evacuate.
To get the word out, the city will deploy signage indicating the evacuation at major intersections throughout the city, and are having local police officers pass through every street in the command making announcements by loudspeaker.
Mayor Bloomberg ordered the evacuation during a press conference this morning. The city’s evacuation centers are now open, allowing residents and their pets a place of refuge. You can find a list of evacuation centers here.
I didn't have a change of heart. I think the NYers who were told to evacuate and didn't are to blame too.

Aren't they mostly liberals? The ones who have so much faith in the government that they take being told how large to buy their sodas in stride?

Fight back against the Obama nazis and place a "Vote for Romney" sign in your front yard.
They are pathetic vandals here, resorting to stealing Romney/Ryan signs from peoples' yards. Funny how that made the local news. There's a reason that you don't hear about Republicans doing the same, it's because their candidate doesn't approve of the "No Obama? No peace!" anything goes concept. You don't hear Republicans threatening riots if their candidate doesn't win the election, not that Obama "won" the last one. He bought it with ACORN's help...using American taxpayers' money. Gee, I don't recall saying it was ok to give federal money to ACORN.

Nonpartisan Tax Report Withdrawn After G.O.P. Protest
By JONATHAN WEISMAN
Published: November 1, 2012

WASHINGTON — The Congressional Research Service has withdrawn an economic report that found no correlation between top tax rates and economic growth, a central tenet of conservative economic theory, after Senate Republicans raised concerns about the paper’s findings and wording.

Don Stewart, a spokesman for the Senate Republican leader, Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, said Mr. McConnell and other senators “raised concerns about the methodology and other flaws.” Mr. Stewart added that people outside of Congress had also criticized the study and that officials at the research service “decided, on their own, to pull the study pending further review.”

Senate Republican aides said they had protested both the tone of the report and its findings. Aides to Mr. McConnell presented a bill of particulars to the research service that included objections to the use of the term “Bush tax cuts” and the report’s reference to “tax cuts for the rich,” which Republicans contended was politically freighted.

They also protested on economic grounds, saying that the author, Thomas L. Hungerford, was looking for a macroeconomic response to tax cuts within the first year of the policy change without sufficiently taking into account the time lag of economic policies. Further, they complained that his analysis had not taken into account other policies affecting growth, such as the Federal Reserve’s decisions on interest rates.

“There were a lot of problems with the report from a real, legitimate economic analysis perspective,” said Antonia Ferrier, a spokeswoman for the Senate Finance Committee’s Republicans.“We relayed them to C.R.S. It was a good discussion. We have a good, constructive relationship with them. Then it was pulled.”

“I'm here with bells on.”

There's no such thing as global warming. All data has been fake. The IPCC conspiracy has been exposed. Catch up. There has been no warming in 20 years

Not if Obama is still allowed to promote voter fraud like the last time. I hope we don't have to pay for that again. Last I heard it was a crime to commit or conspire to commit voter fraud.:-/
