Long faces are justified when one hears the name Reagan:
FACT: After Reagan cut taxes for the wealthy, he raised taxes seven of the eight years he was in office and the tax increases were felt hardest by the lower and middle class.
FACT: When Reagan came into office the national debt was $900 billion, by the time he left the national debt had tripled to $2.8 trillion.
FACT: Ronald Reagan secretly sold arms and money to Iran.
FACT: Ronald Reagan spent billions of dollars funding the Islamist mujahidin Freedom Fighters in Afghanistan.
FACT: Ronald Reagan gave nearly 3 million undocumented workers.

FACT: Ronald Reagan raided the Social Security Trust Fund and replaced it with glorified IOU's.

Republicans believe in the constitution where the states have the real power

"Since Obama first took office in 2008, Republicans have picked up a net nine governorships, bringing their total to 30 states, which hold nearly 184 million Americans. In 24 of those states, containing 157 million Americans, Republicans also control the legislatures. Democrats boast similar power in just 12 states, with a population of 100 million. Even Republicansí unimpressive national showing last November didnít reverse their state-level momentum"

Extending the Bush tax cuts was passed overwhelmingly in the Senate - a Democrat majority Senate.
Raising taxes to pay for more government spending, more government waste and more government fraud never works.
It's up to the government to figure out how to manage itself and control its spending without more of a tax burden on hardworking Americans.
The key was cutting taxes and cutting spending. The Democrats can't seem to ever figure the two go hand-in-hand.
Republicans, too, need to find big solutions. We're in big trouble. Cutting spending by 2% is doing surgery on a paper cut.
Solutions like selling federal land, eliminating waste and fraud, and building a pipeline are big solutions.
Republican Depression 2008

" December 5, 2008 03:14 PM EST | AP

WASHINGTON ó President George W. Bush publicly acknowledged for the first time Friday that the U.S. economy is in a recession and worried aloud that Detroit's Big Three automakers may not all survive their mounting troubles.

Four days after the long-suspected existence of a recession was made official, Bush used the word himself.

"Our economy is in a recession," Bush said flatly, speaking to reporters on the South Lawn only hours after the release of a government report showing the biggest month of job losses in 34 years. "This is in large part because of severe problems in our housing, credit and financial markets, which have resulted in significant job losses."

While repeatedly listing the serious problems in the economy, the White House has refused to embrace the actual term until Monday, when a panel for the National Bureau of Economic Research said the recession began last December and is ongoing.

With automakers, particularly General Motors, in fear of bankruptcy, they are seeking from Washington a huge cash infusion of up to $34 billion, beyond an existing $25 billion loan program. Lawmakers are considering the idea, but there is uncertainty about the level of support on Capitol Hill for that plan.

Bush displayed skepticism about the wisdom of new aid to companies that still need to make "hard choices on all aspects of their business." So while urging lawmakers to act next week to help the battered industry, Bush urged a Congress controlled by opposition Democrats to follow his approach.

The president supports adjusting the $25 billion loan program, so that the money would be available more quickly and for more urgent needs than its original long-term purpose of helping to retool factories to produce more energy-efficient cars.

"I am concerned about the viability of the automobile companies," he told reporters on the South Lawn. "I am concerned about those who work for the automobile companies and their families. And likewise, I am concerned about taxpayer money being provided to these companies

now if you only had proof that cutting taxes and spending at the same time actually works.

and no one wants a pipeline that won't even make any difference at our pump.

Seems rather pathetic for a liberal to actually use any religious leader to make their point or agree with their argument. You libs didn't even want God mentioned at your convention. Aren't most libs atheist anyway? Why do you care what the pope says?
why does Limbaugh care what he says?

because the Pope took a shot at a right wing myth?

<quoted text> Sorry but your answer was stupid. Every type of income is not taxed the same.
Why is the money earned trading pieces of paper taxed at a rate significantly less than the money earned through a good wage or salary?
that wasn't the question, dumbfck. The question was about individuals being taxed for what they do. Anyone can trade pieces of paper to be in that tax bracket. Its not something reserved for the rich.

dumbass Dave showing off his ignorance again.
