There really is no point in trying to have an intelligent conversation about fiscal policy with someone who insists on propagandizing federal government REVENUE and federal government OUTLAYS (i.e., spending) as somehow synonymous.

They're not.

Nor is a reduction in federal tax RATES synonymous with a reduction in federal tax REVENUE, as you insist on propagandizing. A reduction in tax rates that spurs increased growth in economic activity can result in INCREASED federal tax REVENUE.

But playing along with your bullsh!t partisan Fedzilla propaganda line just for the purposes of argument, the fundamental fact is that reductions in federal REVENUE are only that - in no way do they represent an increase in federal spending OUTLAY or increased COST to the federal government.

Ergo - the "$7 trillion of spending increases" you continue to falsely claim is Romney's plan is total bullsh!t - a blatant lie.

Lying partisan hack - begone.

As your lawyer, I must advise you that false injurious statements such as yours above are punishable by harsh civil penalties in the State of New York. Mr Romney and/or his Campaign are entitled to sue you and Topix for general damages and special damages.

I advise you to retract these falseaccusations and issue an apology.

Topix is advised to ban you from the site for violation of their TOS, lest they also be liable for damages by propagating your slanderous statements.

Why is Obama letting terroists into the White House?

Among the visitors were officials representing groups which have:
Been designated by the Department of Justice as unindicted co-conspirators in terrorist trials; Extolled Islamic terrorist groups including Hamas and Hizballah;
Obstructed terrorist investigations by instructing their followers not to cooperate with law enforcement;
Promoted the incendiary conspiratorial allegation that the United States is engaged in a "war against Islam" a leading tool in recruiting Muslims to carry out acts of terror;
Repeatedly claimed that many of the Islamic terrorists convicted since 9-11 were framed by the U.S government as part of an anti-Muslim profiling campaign.

Individuals from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) visited the White House at least 20 times starting in 2009. In 2008, CAIR was listed as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorist money laundering case in U.S. history the trial of the Holy Land Foundation in which five HLF officials were convicted of funneling money to Hamas.

First off to say that federal tax revenue does not effect the deficit, you're beyond insane. That is complete bullshit if you think that.

Second, playing with your make believe world where taking in less amount of revenue in any way doesn't impact the deficit. So your argument is "Oh well you see when you remove the 5 trillion less we will be making from taxes, he only wants to run in the red by 2 trillion more. Thats way less than obama wanting to...oh whats that...he is making 3 trillion in spending cuts....and raising 1 trillion in revenue?..."

You don't think your arguments through much do you...

You must have me confused with someone else.

I've said nothing about the "deficit."

I want federal SPENDING cut back to its historically sustainable level of 18% of GDP or less.

YOU'RE the one who's arguing with yourself about the "deficit." include me out - not interested.

Romney adding 2 trillion to spending removing 5 trillion from revenue

Obama cutting 3 trillion from spending adding 1 trillion to revenue.

Doesn't take a genius to figure that out. Quit being a partisan hack

You can LIE all you want but you can't chanhe facts, obama came into office with a 450 billion dollar deficit, OBAMA added tge 1 trillion stimulus to that deficit. Obama is responsible for 6 trillion of deficit spending. Obama increased National debt 6 trillion. Obama promised to cut deficit in half but instead raised it by 300 percent. FACT
<quoted text>
Bird go back and learn the differance between DEBT and Deficit.
And can you PLEASE tell us where in H-ll you are getting these numbers from?
I think you are pulling them out of someplace where the sun doesn't shine.
Look here is just ONE site that can tell you that OBAMA has decreased the DEFICIT [ yes he did increase the bebt ]
http://home.adelphi.edu/sbloch/deficits.html
As you can see F/Y 2007/2008 the DEFICIT was 1Trillion 17 Billion 71 Mill.
2008/09 the last budget Bush signed into law, the DEFICIT was 1Trillion 885Billion 104 Mill.
09/10 OH LOOK it deficit goes down , the FIRST budget OBAMA signs is has lower spending in it than the last one G.W. Bush signed.
1 Trillion 651 Billion 794 Mill Down 233 Billion 310 mill.
F/Y 10/11 the Deficit was 1 Trillion 228 Billion 717 mill and that is down 423 Billion 077 mill
OH!! it went down again
lets look at 2011/12 the DEFICIT was 1 Trillion 224 Billion 790 mill
OH it went down again by only 3 Billion 927 mill But it did go down.
SO go back and find where you got your numbers from and let us know.
The Deficit in 07/08 was already over a TRILLION dollars and in 08/08 it was 1 Trillion, 885 Billion 104 million NOT 450 Billion [ you only wish it was 450 Billion that would have been about 1/4th of what it really was.]

Teddy first of all didn't we try all this before?
Wasn't it called trickle down back when Reagan tried it?
And it didn't work then why do you think it will now?
NOW remember REAGAN had to increase taxes 11 times when he was in office after he did his big tax cut.
You keep on saying that you want spending back to the 18% of gdp rate,
Well as of now OBAMA has decreased the rate that spending was growing to a rate of about 4% over what G.W. Bush was spending and is trying to bring it down even more.
What happens when he brings it down to what Bush had are you still going to insist it go lower, you have to remember that there is an inflation factor that has to be factored in there.
in 2002-2005 Bush II had a spending rate of 18.9% GDP
in 2006 to 2009 it was 13.3% of gdp and if Obama increased it at a rate of 4.1% you are below the 18% you talk about.
The Debt has had an avg. annual increase of 13.8% under Obama \.
It was 10.8% under Carter
23.6% under Reagan
13.9 % under Bush I
4.4% under Clinton
11.1% under Bush II
So Obama is right in the area of Reagan and Bush I and not too far ahead of Bush II
