I love how the right whiners take a career dedicated to the security of this country & trash it in order to protect Cheney who was behind lies that killed 4000 US soldiers.
We know exactly what you are.
December 16,1998 WASHINGTON (CNN)-- From the Oval Office, President Clinton told the nation Wednesday evening why he ordered new military strikes and bombings against Iraq and starts war with Iraq.

"Saddam (Hussein) must not be allowed to threaten his neighbors or the world with NUCLEAR ARMS, poison gas or biological weapons," Clinton said.

Our mission is to attack Iraq's NUCLEAR, chemical and biological weapons programs and its military capacity to threaten its neighbors," said Clinton.

How about personal loopholes, such as home mortgage interest deduction (a subsidy to the real estate industry), state and local tax deductions (a subsidy to high tax states), or charitable deductions (a subsidy to religion)?
So now we have to close all loopholes & subsidies???????

We can choose some that are ridiculous & unneeded?

Giving me a deduction for State taxes does not help the state. Dunmbass.

Corporate foreign profits are taxed in the country in which they are earned, just as we tax foreign corporations for profits that they earn here. The problem is that US corporate tax rates are the highest in the world.
Name one specific oil subsidy not available to other businesses.
If you mean lower rates for dividends and capital gains, go ahead, raise the rates, and crash the stock market.
1) US corporations owe US corporate taxes on the difference of rates between the US & that country. If the US rate is 35% & the foreign country rate is 25%, then 10% is owed in US taxes.

The loophole is corporations don't have to pay that tax until the money is brought back to the US.

This loophole costs us billions of dollars while encouraging overseas investment instead of investment here.

Why not close that loophole?

Right whiners say nooooooooooooooooooooooo,

2) Another oil,subsidy denier. Funny how Republicans in Congress know they are there because they keep fighting to keep them.

3) The Stock market did fine before the Bush tax cuts.

Actually, what I really think is people who can't help themselves out of their own circumstances - be it drug addiction, lack of education or a victim in the vicious cycle of poverty, no amount of money can make them do what only they themselves can do to change their own circumstances.
Helping the poor is one thing. Providing a safety net is one thing.
But simply creating dependency on the backs of others is not helping anyone.
So who gets to choose? Who decides which people can't get help.

The majority of those on welfare leave the system through employment.

Republicans in the House control purse strings now so all debt & spending starting in 2011 belongs to the Republicans. Right?

He wasn't the perfect candidate but, by all logic and in a sane world, Romney would be sitting in the White House right now.
Then again, I'm still holding on to that silver lining. If things really do have to get a lot worse before they can get better, it just might stop all these nonsense.
The Story of Romney’s Career:“What I Said Is Not What I Believe”

Of course, it never mattered whether Romney “really” believed what he was saying, because it became clear years ago that he would have said almost anything to win. In that case, it was a good bet that Romney was always more likely to lie to his audience than not, and for that reason he disqualified himself through sheer, overwhelming dishonesty. When in doubt, it was safe to assume that Romney was lying, and it was usually safe to assume the worst about his intentions.

Mooching Off Medicaid

Consider the case of Florida, whose governor, Rick Scott, made his personal fortune in the health industry. At one point, by the way, the company he built pleaded guilty to criminal charges, and paid $1.7 billion in fines related to Medicare fraud. Anyway, Mr. Scott got elected as a fierce opponent of Obamacare, and Florida participated in the suit asking the Supreme Court to declare the whole plan unconstitutional. Nonetheless, Mr. Scott recently shocked Tea Party activists by announcing his support for the Medicaid expansion.

But his support came with a condition: he was willing to cover more of the uninsured only after receiving a waiver that would let him run Medicaid through private insurance companies. Now, why would he want to do that?
