How can you say investors dumped stock because Obama was winning the election in 2008. Look at where the market is.
Either investors were dumber than sh*t in2008 not realizing what Obama would do for them or you are dumber than sh*t.
Which is it?
Obama ran on a stimulus. Investors like a stimulus.
What happened when Obama got the nomination? What happened on January 20? Everybody loves free money! Cut that money off and watch what happens.

Of course, you do understand that if you tax dividends and capital gains at the same rate as ordinary income that the stock market would be depressed by several thousand points, jeopardizing many pension funds and individual retirement accounts. Is it worth that to gain your revenge on a few successful people (who will likely just move their money overseas)?
that dum...person has no retirement...that person is relying solely on the Government's ability to tax and give them a share...

Because it is a waste of time.
More dumbass Republicans yelling at people.
Republicans should hold hearing on how they cost the economy out of 24 billion dollars in an debt ceiling fiasco.
A waste of whose time? This economy fiasco is Barack Hussein Obama's fault, and always has been. What about the taxes, and Barack Hussein Obama's budgets?

Never saw this coming...

GSS, a survey...2009, somewhat dated...

"Liberals do not consider cheating on taxes to be as morally problematic as conservatives do. This presents an obvious moral quandary of its own, as, putatively less surprisingly, liberals are more likely than conservatives are to favor greater amounts of taxation and wealth redistribution"

This question was also posed...

"If the government had a choice between reducing taxes or spending more on social programs like health care, social security, and unemployment benefits, which do you think it should do?"

Can't imagine which group was AGAINST reducing taxes...

No. I'm accusing Obama of being stupid enough to steal software that had software bombs written into it to protect it from thieves like Obama who would steal it.
I'm sure Obama would be flattered that you believe he is capable of writing a software program but calling him a thief because the company that was hired to set up Obamacare.gov didn't keep the copyright notices for DataTables in THEIR software program is just insane.

That sounds like you support a flat tax. No exceptions, no exemptions, no excuses. A crackwhore gets 10 dollars. She coughs up a buck fifty or so to the federal government, right?
Yes, America will be just fine if your flat tax idea gets adopted.
American will never survive the condition where only half of the country pays all the taxes, while the half not paying taxes makes the decisions of how much to tax and what to spend it on.
LOL. Another con who's unfamiliar with the fall of the Roman Empire.

The stock market is all you have to gloat about, libtard.

It has done well despite Obama & Democrats.

What about the "real" reason for stimulus, which you nor the boy in a mans job have no clue about - the economy and...

for regular Americans!

Stimulus was N - O - T for the market, idiot stick.

You are 100 percent correct. The clowns calling themselves "liberal" are actually radical conservatives trying to send us back to the middle ages where everyone is a serf bound to the land.
The Constitution is the ultimate bipartisan agreement. It guarantees every individual their right to speak their mind, live their own life, and defend themselves from dictator wannabes like the Democrats who want to make peasant subjects out of the population.
lol! And you're the group who makes fun of using a teleprompter... then uses it!

Ethics and taxes...

what demographic does this describe?

tax cheats believe:
-That they are special
-That they deserved it.
-That they are good people overall.
-are prone to cheat in other areas (73 percent).(Epic ethics failure)
-are comfortable with keeping change from a cashier who overpaid.
- are comfortable keeping cash dropped by a stranger.
-that lying about income to keep if from the Government is ok.
-28 percent believed it was ok to take money from their child's piggy bank.

Liberal loons keep referring to 24 billion dollars pent on the debt ceiling fiasco. Please itemize those expenses. You will not because you can not.
Peace
KMA
First of all, it isn't $24 billion "spent on the debt ceiling fiasco". It's $24 billion "out of the U.S. economy." Big difference.

Two bad you are not smart enough to learn how to use a search engine.

Here’s a breakdown of some of the economic cost according to TIME:

About $3.1 billion in lost government services, according to the research firm IHS

$152 million PER DAY in lost travel spending, according to the U.S. Travel Association

$76 million PER DAY lost because of National Parks being shut down, according to the National Park Service

$217 million PER DAY in lost federal and contractor wages in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area alone
