As much as you try to filter 50's ideology into a 21st century world it still comes back to bite. No one has ever said taxing the rich their fair share would fix all the problems, only Fox runs with that and you parrot what they say. It's all about people paying their fair share of tax whether you work at Walmart or Wall St. The percentage of tax should be higher the more you earn not LOWER. That's just about fairness, not fixing the freaking debt.<quoted text>
The big question is why? Why do the American people trust Obama?
The housing market collapse was the culmination of many and various complicated factors.
Congress chose to ignore the warnings of the impending crisis when Bush tried to warn them.
And if this is the best Obama can do, then he doesn't know what he's doing.
Spending our way out of a $16 trillion deficit while raising taxes on a very small percentage of the population is a naive and sophomoric approach and a gross miscalculation.
But, hey, I hope like crazy I'm wrong. I don't want to be right this time. I really don't.
But here is the senerio, those dead beat Republicans who promised Tea party ppl like you not to ever vote to raise taxes will just let that fiscal cliff go by without coming to any compromise.
Once it is enforced, then they will vote to cut the taxes again so they can say they never voted to raise them. lol That is the typical idiots you have in this party you follow which destroys the country economy and allows rivals to keep progressing. While they run around fear mongering about anything that is mythical, like illegals, taxes, socialists, religion etc. Yet real science like climate change they choose to ignore.
