Moving on.
The Palestinian statement is true while the Israeli statement is false. Therein lies the rub.

www.washingtonpost.com/.../fact...bush-tax-cu... ...
Oct 1, 2012 – FACT CHECKER | It's time for Obama to retire the talking point that Bush tax cuts and deregulation caused the 2008 economic crisis.

"The Facts

We should stipulate at the outset that Romney adamantly rejects the idea that he has proposed more tax cuts for the wealthy. His plan would cut tax rates, but also eliminate tax deductions, which he says would make the plan revenue neutral. But no one has proven that his numbers add up, and the respected nonpartisan Tax Policy Center concluded that the available details on the Romney plan suggest taxes would decrease for the wealthy but rise for the middle class.

Romney has advocated repealing the Dodd-Frank financial regulation bill. As for the role of deregulation in the crisis, there certainly has been news reporting showing that the Bush administration generally took a hands- off approach to regulating financial institutions.

But others would note the irony of Clinton citing the perils of deregulation under Bush because he also is culpable. Clinton signed into law a repeal of the Glass-Steagall law that separated commercial and investment banks — a policy shift that some have said also played a role in the economic crisis. Moreover, Clinton also signed into law the Commodity Futures Modernization Act, which essentially removed derivatives contracts from regulatory oversight. By many accounts, derivatives, such as the credit default swap, were at the heart of the financial crisis.

Indeed, Clinton has admitted that he was given wrong advice about the need to regulate derivatives contracts.“I think they were wrong, and I think I was wrong to take” their advice, Clinton said of his economic advisers.

The Dodd-Frank bill tightened regulations on derivatives contracts, thus reversing the decision that Clinton — not Bush — had made.

While one can argue whether deregulation under Clinton or Bush played a bigger role in the financial crisis, the notion that the Bush tax cuts “led” to the 2008 crisis is especially puzzling. "

Wise up, dummies.

This is what will happen if the fiscal cliff is not avoided, I say do it and let the people who voted for Obama deal with paying higher payroll taxes, higher taxes and losing exemptions:

Summary
A number of tax provisions either expired in 2011 or are scheduled to expire at the end of 2012.
These include the following:
• The Bush tax cuts, which reduced income taxes by reducing tax rates, reducing
the marriage penalty, repealing limitations on personal exemptions and itemized
deductions (PEP and Pease, respectively), expanding refundable credits, and
modifying education tax incentives. The Bush tax cuts also reduced estate tax
liabilities by increasing the amount of an estate exempt from taxation and by
lowering the tax rate.

• The alternative minimum tax (AMT) patch, which, by increasing the amount of
income that is exempt from the AMT and allowing certain personal credits
against the AMT, prevents an estimated 26 million additional taxpayers from
owing the AMT.

• The payroll tax cut, which reduced an employee’s share of Social Security taxes
by two percentage points.

• A variety of previously extended temporary tax provisions, commonly referred to
as “tax extenders,” which affect individuals, businesses, charitable giving,
energy, community development, and disaster relief.

Go for it Obama.

<quoted text>Obama accomplishments:
Health care reform, the takeover and turnaround of the auto industry, the biggest economic stimulus in history, sweeping new regulations of wall street, a tough new set of consumer protections on the credit card industry. A vast expansion of national service, net neutrality, the greatest increase in wilderness protection in fifteen years. A revolutionary reform to student aid. Signing the new Start Treaty with Russia. The ending of the don't ask don't tell. The ending of the war in Iraq, began the draw down in Afghanistan, helped to oust Gaddafi in Libya and ushered out Mubarek in Egypt, tightened sanctions against Iran. He shifted counterterrorism strategies to target Osama Bin Laden and then ordered the risky raid that killed him. Obama has done this while steering the country out of what might have been a second Great Depression. Quite a list of accomplishments. The failure is the current US Congress.
Just some of Obama's failures. Record high unemployment. Record high gas prices. Destroying the best health care system in the world. Total incompetence in the handling of the Gulf oil spill. Ignoring the Ft. Hood terrorist attack, referring to it as a simple act of workplace violence. Failure to close Gitmo. Promoting class warfare and racism. Appointing numerous Communists and Socialists to high positions. Allowing his underage daughter to travel to Mexico for a weekend of drugs, booze and sex. His numerous "green energy" failures. Lying about his involvement in the "Fast & Furious scandal. Pulling out of Iraq too soon with no clear victory thus empowering the insurgents. Accomplice to the murder of the Libyan Ambassador and 3 of his colleagues while intentionally covering it up to deceive the American public. No response to the attempted shootdown of a military drone. Widespread election fraud. Total incompetence in the handling of the Hurricane Sandy disaster. And all of this occurred in just one failed term. I winder what his next failed term will bring.

The problem with that logic is that Democrats, particularly those on the hard left, are very happy to increase everybody's taxes, not just those of the wealthy.

As a certified tea bagger, you must be one of those I need more of my money than give any for the good of the country. When you defend the rich to keep paying banana republic tax rates you risk becoming a banana republic yourself. One day that might just sink in.

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America 's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, "the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."

As fiscal Conservative, I do not want the US government to engage in any activities other than those specifically authorized by the US Constitution.

I don't know what you mean by a "tea bagger", nor do I care.

I don't know what you mean by the "rich", nor do I care.

I do know that we are engaged in a war between the taxpayers and the tax consumers, and that supporting the tax consumers rather than encouraging them to become taxpayers is not for the "good of the country."
