<quoted text>
Another Right Wing economic fairy tale - taxes prevent investment.
Taxes never have, and never will, prevent investment.
Let's consider this:
Daddy left you $800 Million when he left this stressful life.
You can invest that $800 Million and receive $50 Million a year after taxes,
or
you can invest that $800 Million and receive $40 Million a year after taxes,
or
You can invest that $800 Million and receive $30 Million a year after taxes,
or
you can put $800 Million in plastic PVC pipe and bury it in the back yard, and receive $0.
Are you gonna say - no thanks - I don't want $50 Million, or $30 Million, or $30 Million this year in income ?
Are you gonna say - No Sir, I'll pass up $30 Million and take $0 instead.
The investor obviously invests regardless of the tax rate he'll pay on the income.
As Warren Buffer said, the tax rate never, ever, prevents any investor from investing because some income is always better than no income.
There are 8 Billion reasons to believe Warren Buffet knows what he's talking about.
While I understand Bill in Dville's belief that investors should be rewarded for taking risks, my gut reaction - and life experience - tells me that Informed Opinion is very correct on this issue: No matter what the tax rate is, a person with money to invest is indeed going to invest it - they certainly are not going to bury it in the back yard.

And something else that occurs to me: the rational offered for the tax breaks is because investors have risk associated with investment. Understandable. But one might also argue for the government to give tax breaks for those investors who put money in activities which are not so risky, yet have more stable financial returns. The argument might be that a more stable economy with defined growth would be fostered.

So which has a better return to the overall economy, the money invested in those "non-risky" investments like Treasury bonds (which results in no growth to the economy), or the money invested with the small entrepreneur who may go out of business, thus losing your investment, or who may have a successful restaurant that employs a dozen, opens a second restaurant and employs another dozen and eventually has a chain and employs hundreds. Which has the long term best benefit to the economy? The government does not and cannot grow the economy in any real sense. It is the small business that is the engine that truly drives this economy.

The default position of those who cannot support their position with actual facts because the truth is that this administration's policies have only made economic conditions worse. Blame all you want on Bush, but the truth is that if you want to look at the housing crisis and it's impact on the economy go look at the Community Investment Act, the Clinton Justice Dept breathing down the necks of banks so they would offer home loans to those who couldn't afford them, and Christopher Dodd and Barney Frank protecting Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to keep their contributions and sweetheart deals coming in. My disagreement with Obama's positions (and most Democrat positions) is based on policies that are proven to be detrimental to the country - never based on skin color. But you keep screaming racism, that's what the ignorant do best.
Bill, racism is a fact in the South. Just go hang with a few old timers like synergy and they spew it all the time. PURE hate is all you and your buddies have, nothing more. You should know being just another sock puppet.
ALL Presidents have encouraged home ownership, itís the engine that fuels prosperity. Bush in a speech in California said he wanted all people to have the opportunity to own a home, thatís not a direct quote but close. The problem erupted when government oversight on lenders turned a blind eye to outright stupid loans. One that had worked in the past because home values continued to rise at stupid rates. But when the Bush administration looked the other way as investment firms packaged known bad loans into investments that we highly rated by rating firms in bed with the investment houses the house of cards fell. I donít think George hand any idea what was going on, to busy patting himself on the back. But he should have and for that thank you GEORGE for killing the economy.
As for that stupid argument that Obama is the cause such a large increase in the deficit, you are right. Unwinding two of the longest wars in our history, wars that were a mistake form the beginning. Wars where lies and misinformation we used to justify them and they we not funded in ANY budget!! Add the costs to save the banking industry and the auto industry. Costs of the money the government spent trying to recover jobs and spur the economy, and facts show they all worked to some degree not matter what you claim. Plus they were passed by Congress, endorsed by OBAMA, Republicans voted for most of them. Heck the 1st bailout and the auto loans were Bush ideas. Saying they have not worked is pure fiction and canít be backed by one real fact. But thatís not what you are interested in. You just seem to be worried about some poor person getting something that you consider yours.
You are a pitiful human, thatís if you really are one.

I'm not Bill, but I'm going to respond.
1. I'm not an old timer.
2. Racism? You libs ALWAYS use that as an excuse. Worn out. Not effective. Obama's main focus is to spread hate. It fits his agenda. Get some new material.
3. PC has ruined this country. Use merit, not color.
