Well just to clear the air, what tea party did you attend last year? Or is this something that all of a sudden has become an issue? Because I do believe taxes being to high and spending being out of control was going on the previous eight years and I really don't want you to look like a hypocrite. Any answers?

No, the previous 8 years was spending trying to repair what Clinton, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac has done to this country....

Had to work couldn't get off to go. This has been an issue for longer then 8 years! Why do you think this is a W or Obama thing this is at all levels of government, federal, state and local? But this last round of "change" as we were promised is just making it worse.

And you put the rude comment out there first so please do not be surprised when someone acted just as immature as you did. It was wrong of them but still funny.

Blaming the meltdown on Fannie and Freddie has been disproven more than once- get over that red herring. It is the republicans who want to work for government but not pay for anything - government for the wealthy. That has been their platform for years, and from 2001 to 2006 they acted in lockstep to implement these deregulatory measures. Clintons SEC prosecuted 60 cases his last year of office - Bush'es SEC prosecuted 6 CASES! And the whole word teabagging is way too dirty - as usual, the FOX news channel is the dirtiest, most x-rated..

I wasn't suprised at all. Immature is thinking this is an issue all of a sudden now that Obama is in office. Really where was the tea party 1,2,5,8, years ago? It just kills me how the GOP has been reduced to reacting instead of leading. Dumping tea in a waterway does nothing to solve the issue, but then again with leadership like Eric Cantor I guess this is the best that can be expected.

Okay everybody-quit getting your panties in a knot and just get through today and stop bellyaching about the things that have been and see what you can do about today and possibly tomorrow. Nobody is perfect and both parties have made terrible blunders and will continue to do so as long as the two party system exist. One thing I think we all can agree on is that we don't want higher taxes...the tea party should be held at the local IRS offices and the national headquarters in DC and in Congress/Senate/House of Representatives....

NO, concerned cvillian, you don't get it - we NEED higher taxes. Going from 35% to 39% on people making over $300,000, increasing the estate tax, these are things we need to rebuild our schools, our crumbling infrastructure. A society runs on taxes, and the GOP no new taxes garbage was garbage and not followed even when the vaunted Bush I and Reagan said it - they BOTH increased taxes. We have to tax, to have a society. Where has our ability to think of the good of the whole gone? Wht is more, we should tax to create policy - tax gasoline to reduce use, stop subsidizing factory farms...

ridiculous. Fannie and Freddie were no more than 20% of the loans - the rest was your 'friends'?(that is the trouble - they are not your friends, don't you get it) at Goldman Sachs, Aig, bundling bad loans - slapping a triple A rating on them - that is where Cuomo may find actual criminality - and passing the risk on, while they made millions off each deal. Now we have paid for the risk, while they are all gone with their millions. Really, what I am saying is true. You can look THAT up.! But no use to convince whoever you are. It is useless. As you will not convince me of your Repub talking points. So the solution is more de-regulation, is that it? Wow. More FDA deregulation, more dereg of mining and health care should only be through private insurers. Repubs are in denial. They have brought us to ruin and can't see it..weird. And by the way, whatever you think of tea-baggin is, FOX is definietyley the most x-rated of all the news show..hee hee. Enjoy women naked and shoeless - you probably like 'em better that way, anyway. And do you hate the gays, also? What a sad, limited world you live in...
One additional point. You mentioned AIG. Wasn't it Christopher Dodd who put the language in the Obama spending bill to give the execs at AIG bonuses? Wasn't it Christopher Dodd who was the number one benefactor of campaign contributions from AIG? And do you not know that most top level CEO'S are democrats? Itís amazing how uninformed some voters are today.

Flat tax. Straight across the board. For everyone. No junk, no hiding, no stupid. Just one level. Pay one tax to your local state and let them pay the Federal expenses out of that.
Taxes suck at all levels. No government has ever taxed their country into prosperity.

So are you going to pay for the increase in taxes? What needs to be done is make those that can work get out there and get a job and stop livnig off a system designed to help those that truly need it. How are higher taxes going to help when those that are spending the money do it unwisely? All it will do is give them more money to waste!!

Trace, it is strange that a person from the seat of power in California would have the bawls to come on this forum and tell a Virginian how to handle his economic affairs. Guess you want to bankrupt the rest of the country also. California has helped greatly to get us in this mess. Why don't you leave the union. We won't try to stop you.

I'm no rocket scientist, but if the recession we are in is the result of 8 years of "Clinton repair", maybe it is a good thing we changed building contractors!

How appropriate to have the event on the newly bricked downtown mall. This is such a shrine to high taxes in the city and wasteful spending.

Trace: I bet you are part of the 50% that don't pay taxes. It is easy for you to say, we NEED more taxes. If we start raising taxes on the "rich", pretty soon, it won't pay to be "rich" and this nation will lose ALL of the taxpayers and investors. Also, it would be more acceptable if our money the government spends were put to good and fair use. IT IS NOT. They are spending our hard earned dollars on abortions, fraudulent organizations like ACORN and bailouts for the irresponsible. A great deal of TARP funds went to overseas governments! Remember, we have yet to earn this money--it is another loan from the Communist Chinese. This is debt for our kids and grandkids--what a bunch of cowards we have in government right now. No one has the guts to do the right thing and stop this tax and spend nonsense.
