Because of the fact taxes are not the problem in this country. Spending is. You can tax until doomsday and we will still have trillion dollar deficits with 16 trillion in debt and growing.
When you see a problem, you solve it. You don't try to make it look like you're doing something to solve it. If you have a grease fire on your stove, you don't spray it with water.
Let me put it this way: your wife spends $1,200 more per month than you bring home. So you go out and get a job for one Saturday per month that nets you $80.00. How much of your problem did you solve?
That's what DumBama is trying to sham people with; that $80.00 increase in your household income will save the day. You want to raise taxes? Fine with me. Let those 47% pay a little since they haven't contributed a dime. Then we can discuss taxing the wealthy more.
See how easy it is to meet half way? Too bad DumBama can't do that.

Yeah, I'm sure this philanthropist was minding his own business, building houses for the homeless, when out of nowhere, those darn TV cameras come around again to find out what he thinks of the Palestinian situation or taxing people even more money.
Like Clinton, that guy can't get enough camera time. A failed President trying to be somebody now.
#14482 Nov 30, 2012
So you want to raise taxes on everybody? Ok. But you need to check where your party stands on that issue because it sure as Hell ain't the President who is refusing to meet half way.

Look at that GDP spending chart again. When did it go in a nearly straight-up direction? When DumBama came in with a Democrat Congress and Senate. It didn't go down until Democrats knew they were in hot water based on all the polls for the mid-terms. When Republicans finally got their Congressional seats warm, it went down again.
Now I understand that DumBama wants even more spending, more tax increases and still no cuts. The GOP is fighting to bring GDP spending back down to the Bush years and Democrats are trying to increase it even higher.
#14485 Nov 30, 2012
It''s real simple: the Republicans said they would cave a little on tax increases provided DumBama caves for some serious spending cuts. DumBama won't do it. We are heading towards the fiscal cliff and the media will promote that it's all the Republicans fault and not DumBama. The only place you will find the truth in the media is Fox.

Don't Worry Folks! De "cliff" is fast approaching and WE'RE ALL GOING OVER! Weeeeeeeeeeeee!

Oh, you mean when he made those speeches on the direction this country was heading and offered advice to his son?
#14488 Nov 30, 2012
You understand wrong, as usual.
#14489 Nov 30, 2012
What is the GOP proposal? Nothing. President Obama made a proposal cutting spending and the GOP said "No."
Go to the Fox News website and show us an article that explains what the GOP offer is.
It's funny how you guys never learn. When we said Obama was going to be re-elected you said it was just the "liberal media" twisting the polling numbers. You insisted Fox was right that Romney would win. They were horribly wrong and you just keep accepting whatever bullshit they feed you. Incredible.

I agree again. Churches that take crosses out of the altar to get federal funding, or include abortion coverage in their employee health insurance just to get it are prime examples of the hypocracy. I think they should get no funding. They already get tax free donations don't they? Unless they can account that every dollar goes to charities for the community. But they should get money only from members ,not our tax money. I'm sure some churches use it for good. I volunteered to pack food for starving children in africa at a local church here in bath ohio. The people there were really nice and weren't pushy about religion at all. We did "pray" after we were done but we also watched a video of a 9 year old boy who weighed 56lbs. After 3 monthes of the packed meals he gained almost 30lbs. They said we packed enough food to feed 1000 people to eat for five months, and got it done in two hours... http://www.fmsc.org/page.aspx...
They are are really good charity with a great reputation. If you care about this sort of thing research them. Christian or not, anybody who likes doing volunteer work should check them out...

I did hear somebody at work grumbling on about how "now obamas president another 4 years, I might have to do something illegal to get enough money to make ends meet.." or some crap like that. But then they hate people on welfare that sell drugs or break housing laws. Its the whole victim thing. They have a different set of morals fo themselves I guess..
#14494 Nov 30, 2012
Okay, is CNN okay with you?
Yeah, give me 1.6 trillion dollars in spending, and I'll cut Medicare for you guys.......... next year. Right. I have a bridge to sell you.

What means that GB senior was seldom seen and in rare events such as the one you brought up here. Carter is seen everywhere and not at disaster sites. He's in suit and tie giving speeches all over the place.

There is one solution to poverty: get a job.

In the beginning, man wondered to himself:
Why, oh why are we here?
And yet, with each asking of this question
the answer would become even less clear
Overwhelmed by fear, distraction took its place
And so it was, in the world's first shelter
That we began the human race
The human race to fill up more and more empty space
Oh, how we loved, the human race
Until one day this one guy said to this other guy, he said:
Hey, have you seen that guy over there?
He's got more than everybody else has got
To me, that don't seem fair
Well, the second guy agreed with the first guy
Everybody else did too
Til they all got so worked up, they figured
there was something they just had to do:
Divide his things up among each other
After they killed him of course
They could see no real good reason not to just
Take what they wanted by force
When they found him he said:
Hey, wait a minute fellas, I wouldn't kill me just now
You can see that I've got more than any of you
Have ever got, wouldn't you first at least like to know how?
And with that, he had their attention
And with that, he went on loud and clear, he said:
You all know how long we've all wondered
Why, oh why are we here?
Well today I'm gonna tell ya all about it
I'm gonna teach ya about sufferin' and bliss
I'm gonna teach y'all a little bout Heaven and Hell
And the God that gave me all this
God gave me this because I'm humble
And he can do the same for you too
But if you're seekin' his love and affection
What you're doin' is the last thing I'd do
He sends killers to hellfire, both here and eternally
The good live forever in a place called Heaven
God told me this personally
Who you gonna trust if you can't trust me?
So unless you want suffering and heartache
Unless you want trouble and fear
You better find some kinda way to humble yourself
May I suggest helpin' me clean up around here?
'Course I could pay ya a little bit a money
But more importantly God would see
And if He sees you workin' humbly
Some day he may give you what he's given me
Well the crowd just didn't know what to do with that
Nor could they prove what he said wasn't true
And since he had what everyone else thought they wanted
It seemed like the thing to do
And with that we rolled into the future
And ain't it a son of a bitch
To think that we would still need religion
To keep the poor from killin' the rich?
Who are you gonna trust if you don't trust me?
