when the Bush Tax cuts for the wealthy expire at the end of the calendar year?
Obama will push through a new tax cut for the middle class.....
JUST the middle class up to 250k a year.
the wealthy will go back to the rates they paid in the 90's(when they did just fine)
federal taxes have never been lower!!
they reached their height at 90% on the highest tax brackets?? back in 1957.
of course the wealthy didnt pay any more than about half of that prescribed rate.
just like they do now.....33%(GWB TC) is roughly 16 percent real income paid....after tax shelter, offshoring and tax ninja's with computers.
that SUPER high rate(in the 50's and 60's) brought you the space race, moon landings? that progressive age....the interstates.....
the money to fight the cold war AND have the great society programs of the LBJ era??
that money came from progresssive taxation of the uber wealthy.
quit whining about your taxes or the debt.
since these tax rates have come down from THAT era??
(and every sucssesive administration has either lowered or kept the same rates on the highest income btrackets)
..........the wealthy have managed to offshore 32 trillion dollars...and that is just liquid assets.
they literally raped the public coffers during the bush years..
just another reason your party had such limited credibilty going into tuesday's election.
those pesky wars that cost trillions...
you think the demmy's want to keep that going??
politically it will simply turn into a HUGE liability.....they see what happened to YOUR party, and they want to take advantage of that politically, not emulate it.
like colin powell said....... "Obama has started no new wars"...
ill admit that obama used that war, politically, and the killing of Osama bin laden to beat the crap outa your party in tuesdays election.
it was dirty......but ill take Obama and the demmy's over Romney and his "no apologies" philosophy that is likely to get us into a war with a real adversary. afghanistan is just a quagmire that should have ended when bush was still in office, right after HE killed osama.....
you didnt get the osama, so you got the obama instead.......there is a lesson there for you right wing loonatics!!
and you guys still wont admit why it was, that your party lost so badly on tuesday??
people can see when you throw good money after bad...ill admit afghanistan is STILL a BIG waste of time, but as a military person, im sure you realize we cant jsut withdraw over night.....even though Id like that!!
YET!! obama invested in the economy, and saved us from going off a financial cliff that YOUR partry sent us hurltlin off at the end of 08'
good work, no whitehouse!

speaking of "no vet left behind"?/
why did your party vote down the bill that would have given widows of the fallen soldiers their full pensions??
dont you guys want to take care of vets who come back from wars all F***ed up?? and their families?/
or is that just too much entitlement?

Why has Ted Nugent gone nuts?
Well just look at him and you'll see he ain't got all his marbles.
Who else do we add to the "lost Marbles" list?
Bill Orelliey or what ever his name is.

They ended the same time frame as Bushy put in place. If he really wanted to make a point, he should have pulled out of Afghanistan the same time as Iraq. There is no reason we still have US soldiers dying there now. Bring them home now.

Dream on, the middle class will not be getting a tax cut, I don't care how much you tax the rich, it won't make a dent, we all have to pay more.
#2830 Nov 9, 2012
Yep, just as crazy as always.
Maybe TED'S SMOKING THE STUFF HE GROWS ON HIS HUNTING COMPOUND?
But what about all those animals ted likes to shoot up?

the middle class WILL be getting a tax cut!!
the same tax cut bush gave them, silly.....
who are you any ways? herbert hoover??
tax cuts are how we stimulate the economy.....getting extra money in the hand of the middle class, who spend it...
instead of giving it to a fat cat, who has absolutley NO motivation to hire at all, unless demand picks up.....get it already??

Mrs. Green, a single senior citizen female has caused the City of Glendora, California (republican tea party controlled) to stop in their tracks as they have been caught red handed lying, cheating and stealing.
Chris Jeffers - republican
Josh Betta - republican
Jeff Kugel - republican
Gary Clifford - republican
Ken Herman - republican
Gene Murabito - republican
D. Wayne Leech - republican
Karen Davis - claims both parties
Judy Nelson - republican tea party
Joe Santoro - republican
Douglas Tessitor - republican
Several court apperances and legal actions have shown to the California Supreme Court that the city of Glendora, California and Anchor Pacifica Management Company, Pasadena California are both GUILTY.
That was the final ruling from the California Supreme Court this year 2012.

Once again the electorate has SPOKEN WITH the all mighty ballot.
The Novemeber 06, 2012 presidential election was the most costly in American History. It ammounted to a hostal take over bid by "deep Pockets" from overseas and right here at home.
The american public beat back the money funded attacks against the american system. THE AMERICAN VOTER STOOD UP TO BIG MONEY LAUNDERS, like Karl Rove, Koch Brothers, Steve Wynn, Donald Trump and many others who lerk in the shadows.
Can your political leanings be any more apparent? "Obama Gets Second Chance" (headline on Noember 7, 2012).
President Obama did not get a "second chance," he won, period.
The popular vote.
The electoral vote.
America spoke, he won, we won.
Get over it.

At least the courts didn't elect the president this time.

You mean Willard Mitt Romney LOST?
WHAT ABOUTALL THE SUPORT HE WAS TO HAVE HAD?
You mean to tellme when it came right down to it, those blow-hards (republican tea party tea baggers) couldn't produce squat.
Sounds just like them, all show and no go.

Nobody is getting a break in taxes, we all will pay more.....WASHINGTON ó President Obama yesterday announced heís jetting off on a victory lap around Southeast Asia, despite a new government report warning the Jan. 1 fiscal cliff will plunge the US into a recession and drive the unemployment rate up to 9.1 percent.
Obama and Congress have just 52 days to reach a deal to avoid sailing off that precipice, when a devastating double whammy of tax hikes and budget cuts will rock the economy and hit just about every American.
My guess is that his next Press conference will be sometime in 2016. Congress added a few Democrats, and Obama won another term..Yet, the media acts as though there is some kind of mandate. When the Democrats got whacked in 2010, it wasn't a mandate. Sadly, we wil ahve another 4 years of the media kissing Obama's a$$!
Enjoy your long winter a head NY while your leader heads off to Southeast Asia...u will not see his azz for a long time....lol...you get what you vote for....

The big question for the GOP now is how to marginalize the Tea Party, and the ultra-religious without disenfranchising them
I donít see how they can do that, not with the kind of personalities involved

What about the billions of dollars spent trying to purchase the Presidency? Was that Romney's idea of a stimulus package?
#2843 Nov 9, 2012

Nice spin, you are the one that brought up ww2 and comparing old stuff, Im just responding to it. LOL..
