CNN poll: If fiscal cliff talks fail, Republicans will be to blame

As for the sticking point between the parties over an increase in taxes for the wealthiest Americans, 56% say taxes on wealthy people should be kept high so the government can use their money for programs to help lower-income people, with 36% saying taxes on such high earners should be kept low because they invest their money in the private sector and that helps the economy and creates jobs.

. Are you sure it has nothing to do with the lack of marketable skill the people that work their have? How much should someone get paid for taking stuff out of a box and putting it on a shelf or pushing a shopping cart across a lot? What about Mc donalds , should they get 20 an hour for asking if you want fries with that?
Are all libs as dumb as you? Never mind I know that answer.

You're nuts. They could get a second job. Then they wouldn't need public assistance. Every one I know who works at WalMart is happy working there, at least as much as working anywhere. You loony libtards think every business should pay $20 an hour for everyone and offer full health insurance. It's not their job to babysit their employees. You libtards are going to destroy this country with your Santa Claus politics!

U.S. Consumer Confidence Rises To Four-Year High

So is it because Obama won, or because the GOP lost?

Remember, Obama isn't interested in "improving" anything. He and the Pelosi Goons are ONLY interested in blaming others for their abject Failures. Think 10 year olds but with much more demonic motivations.

Are Americans stupid enough to settle for Obama's Orwellian Nightmare?.......Yes. Americans proved they are too stupid to handle self government on Nov 6th.

52% proved they could care less about their own childrens futures. They voted for their children to be pathetic tax slaves to Big Brother.

It had to rise, it couldn't go any deeper in the dumpster? Have you found gainful employment yet?? Maybe the Indianapolis Soup Kitchen is hiring??

Yes, TSM, the perpetual moron, thinks the Republicans should continue to vote NOT to help us recover.

The stimulus bill took Bush's 700,000 a month job losses to job gains.

I have news, if the Republicans try that crap again, they will be blamed & then lose even more seats in 2014.

Flack likes to demand everyone work for minimum wage or less otherwise companies can't possibly make a profit. Then Flack likes to bitch about how may people are on food stamps.

Right whiners are too stupid to know low wages & the number of people on food stamps are related.

My mother refuses to shop at her local Walmart. However, if she is out of town, she will go to a Walmart "just to look." That way no one from her hometown sees her there. Dad shops there, but refers to it as the "W" store. In a small town where choices are limited, they really have the townspeople over a barrel.
That's cute. Yes, being the only store in a town is their plan.
Have nieces in a small town in Massachusetts; they buy everything there, they're almost forced to. That town was devasted by a hurricane a couple of years ago; there was talk of building a casino there! Another plan! Employee the whole town at the casino, and they give their money right back to them, same with Walmart.
It's sad. As I said, they may as well just build barracks for them.
