ok, that's a fact.
it's also a fact that the cuts didn't work as advertised.
so i''m not getting the point you're trying to make. trying to prove you're the smartest guy in the room? if so, have at it. i'm bored. and i do peanut gallery exceptionally well.
in fact they did. our economy did improve.

it most certainly was not the tax cuts that busted our economy later on...you know this.

If O'Reilly had let Obama bloviate and double speak like he always does when confronted with hard questions, he wouldn't have been able to ask any more questions.
It was the interview with Fox after the other cameras stopped rolling that was the better interview and should have been the live one shown.
However, the question O'Reilly is pounding Republican investigators to look into now is: "Did Leon Panetta tell the president on the night of 9/11/12 that the embassy was under a terrorist attack"?
Because if Panetta is subpoenaed and answers under oath that he did, in fact, tell the president Benghazi was a terrorist attack within minutes after it began (which he testified he knew it was), it's all over but the cryin'.
If it's proven this president covered up a terrorist attack to win a reelection, it's all over.
So finally, finally, finally...someone is honing in on the obvious and getting closer to what should have been done months ago. I was getting worried there for a while, but O'Reilly finally came through.
Leon Panetta is the key to the truth - as O'Reilly kept emphasizing - and if the truth is revealed by Panetta, Obama's presidency is over.
That's hilarious doll__some really funny chit.

<quoted text>t was. minimum wage jobs were never meant to be living wage jobs. they are for teenagers, entry level people with no skills,(kind of the same as teenagers) and people looking for an easy, part time job.
So oyu agree "That's what we have welfare, food stamps, subsidies, vouchers and 'disability' for."

Are you for real?
But some people have made food stamps, free housing, more babies and more welfare and living off the backs of others a permanent lifestyle without even a conscience thought this might be wrong.
As Neil Cavuto said, "Be compassionate. Just don't be stupid."
No one is denied medical care in this country just by going to any ER. The idea was to reform health care. Nothing is going to change but it's just going to be much worse for the middle class now.
you keep saying that, yet you never show one iota of fact that supports your theory that it will impact the middle class the most.

So randomly cutting food stamps helps that how?

Maybe if the Anti-poor Republicans really wanted o help these people they could take that 4 billion a year in oil subsidies & increase funding for fraud investigations in government programs.

And really,as a nurse, you don't know the difference between getting healthcare & being treated for a malady.

As president Homer would get rid of the minimum wage and replace it with a living wage. Everyone feel better now?

Minimum wage intention, stfu, it was set up so employers would have to pay next to nothing as opposed to just plain nothing.
