RealDave the Bush recession was over in June 2009!! Obama’s pledge was to assure more Americans depended on Government its working!! I think the term he used was “Transforming America” Redistribution for Equal Outcome!!
There was no pledge to make more people dependent on government & there was no equal outcome.

You are just too uneducated & uninformed to understand the term "Redistribution of wealth" as are most of your right whiner buddies.

If you really had a case against Obama, you wouldn't need to make up the lies like you just did.

...4.5 days....and Warren Buffett...

"If you took every single penny that Warren Buffett has, it'd pay for 4-1/2 days of the US government. This tax-the-rich won't work. The problem here is the government is way bigger than even the capacity of the rich to sustain it. The Buffett Rule would raise $3.2 billion a year, and take 514 years just to pay off Obama's 2011 budget deficit." -Mark Steyn

I didn’t say Buffett or GE was connected, I just said GE should pay their Fair Share of Taxes!! Anyone that pays minimal attention to the news knows that Berkshire that’s own by Buffett owes $1 billion in back Taxes!! So before you go out and say the ‘Wealthiest’ should pay more first take care of your own tax Liabilities!! Another words in a Legal term “Come to the Table with Clean Hands”
Anyone who gets "facts" from Limbaughtomy, Beck, or Faux doesn't have clean hands, he has an empty mind. That "billion"? ""Ruling on Friday in a long-running dispute between Berkshire Hathaway and the US Internal Revenue Service, Judge Lyle Strom of the US District Court of Nebraska found in favour of the investment firm.

The firm's major shareholder, billionaire investment guru Warren Buffett in September testified in the suit, which was brought by Berkshire over the tax authority's decision to disallow $16.3 million in tax deductions.

The legal wrangle between the two parties began in 2002, and involved the taxes paid by the organisation in 1989, 1990 and 1991.

Berkshire Hathaway alleged that the IRS made an "erroneous, wrongful and illegal" interpretation of the US tax code. The tax body's decision was based on the discovery that Berkshire Hathaway had borrowed $750 million to buy dividend-paying stock."

Never bet against the Oracle."

Return of the 47 percent: The right’s latest tax lie

Conservatives can't stop! A new Heritage study echoes Mitt's "47 percent" theme -- and gets facts and history wrong

I am amused to report that my former colleagues at the Heritage Foundation have lost none of their willingness to sacrifice truth to propaganda. The Heritage Foundation has published an “Index of Dependence on Government” by William W. Beach and Patrick Tyrrell that seeks to bolster Mitt Romney’s theme that at least 47 percent of Americans are parasitic, government-dependent “takers” rather than “makers”(hat tip to Thomas B. Edsall):

Today, more people than ever before depend on the federal government for housing, food, income, student aid, or other assistance once considered to be the responsibility of individuals, families, neighborhoods, churches, and other civil society institutions. The United States reached another milestone in 2010: For the first time in history, half the population pays no federal income taxes. It is the conjunction of these two trends — higher spending on dependence-creating programs, and an ever-shrinking number of taxpayers who pay for these programs — that concerns those interested in the fate of the American form of government.

What caught my eye in this latest piece of Heritage agitprop was this sentence: The United States reached a milestone in 2012 — or the first time in history, half the population pays no federal income taxes.

This is not just wrong. It is an error embarrassing enough to shame even a shameless propaganda mill like the Heritage Foundation.

Heritage implies that a majority of Americans paid federal income taxes throughout American history, presumably back to the 1790s. Nothing could be further from the truth. For much of American history, 100 percent of the population paid no federal income taxes, because there were none. And the federal income tax began to fall on the middle-class masses, not just the upper classes, only in the 1940s.

....From all of this it follows that if conservatives like the authors of the Heritage Foundation’s Index of Dependence of Government are sincere in their outrage about the growing number of nonpayers of federal income tax, they should praise President Franklin D. Roosevelt for turning the income tax, originally a tax on the economic elite, into a tax on the majority of Americans. And they should denounce Reagan, Gingrich, the Bushes and others for supporting tax credits that have eliminated millions of low-income Americans from liability for federal income tax payments.

Thus my proposed emendation:

The United States reached a milestone in 2012: For the first time since liberal New Deal Democrats justly extended income tax liability from the rich to the middle and working classes, half the population pays no federal income taxes, thanks to the misguided efforts of conservatives to increase the number of government-dependent nonpayers.

Something tells me that Heritage won’t print this correction.
