The New Deal worked! Plain and simple! No one is looking for a free ride but that's exactly what the super rich are getting. We would not have as big of a debt issue as we do now if it weren't for companies like GE getting 15 million in tax returns after not paying a cent in!<quoted text>
Many things completed by the New Deal did work but many things didn't. Excise taxes were placed on goods predominantly purchased by middle and poor classes. This was the main funding source for the New Deal. It placed a greater burden on the backs of the poor in society which was the opposite of its intent. Federal tax rates went from 25% in 1931 to 79% in 1936 which deterred investments of any kind. Unemployment was at 24% in 1932 and gradually reduced to 15% by 1940, but was not brought down to single digits until World War II when many went to work for military contractors.
In addition, we are tired of hearing our current condition is due to Bush. Obama has increased the deficit at twice the rate of Bush and more Americans are unemployed and for longer periods than ever in history. The national debt is at an all time high of over $15 trillion which largely caused the downgrade in the U.S. debt rating.
Obama actually stated "after 3 years, if the economy isn't fixed, I should be a one-term president".
I will not lower myself to to call you stupid. ignorant,lazy or uneducated.
It's time for the freeloading rich to get off the backs of working class Americans.
I'll as you the same question as I've asked every other republican here, if tax breaks given to the super rich for job creation aren't creating jobs, why keep giving them? Stock Marlket keeps setting closing records and no big job growth. Time to cut the cord on the money train! The free ride is over!
And I won't call you names! You admit some things work, some don't. I'm not saying I agree with everything Semocrat, just most! Republican/Teabaggers I refer to would bot that way even if a homeless shelter was being burnt down, just because it's a republican idea.
Still stand by my statement, time for a New New Deal, and in his next term, I believe it will happen. No way Romey/Ryan can win. Polls are close now yes, but as the talk of no jobs, not paying the same taxes, millionaire, Ryan not caring about the working class.... It'll never happen!
