The Democrats have won and we are going to move even further along the road to socialism and debt. I am astonished that so many people are blind to this fact. 51% of the people of this country pay no income tax and receive some form of government entitlement. Who do you think is supporting them???? My taxes and yours. Money or these programs comes from us!!!!

We are trillions of dollars in debt and we and our children are going to pay for it for year and years. There is no doubt that taxes will have to be raised on the rich, but that won't be enough, so our taxes will be raised too.

At the state level voters continue to elect Democrats and keep Mike Madigan in power. Haven't he and Quinn done a marvelous job?

I hope all you Democratic voters are happy. Another four years of socialism and spending. Fewer people will be paying taxes and the debt will grow even higher. Whatever you are paying in taxes now will only grow higher.

Maybe I should join the 51% and let you carry me on your back too.

Sorry Mr or Mrs. Delusional.....I am NOT, nor ever was, nor ever plan to be, on welfare and I voted Democrat! For you to exclaim that only lazy people on welfare voted democrat makes you sound like a retard.

In fact, your whole prediction of what to expect now makes you sound like a retard.

Gee, WHY is it that 51% of the population don't pay taxes? Could it be that they can't find a job? Oh, but how can that be possible with the whole "trickle-down-theory "? All those tax breaks on the wealthy was supposed to enable them to create jobs....SO, WHERE ARE THEY!?!?! Hmmmmm, APPARENTLY, that "trickle down theory" DOES NOT WORK! When they came up with it, they forgot to include the level of GREED among st the 1% when devising that theory!! The middle class are NOT toilets for the rich, so, Mr/Mrs delusional, if you ARE one of those 1%, which you must be if you voted republicon, you can bite my HARDWORKING, MIDDLE-CLASS ASS!!

All those "tax breaks" to the wealthy EXPIRE in January 2013, SO, once the GREEDY 1% will be paying THEIR FAIR SHARE, the debt will NOT grow higher, but finally be paid off, oh & BY THE WAY, that trillion dollars in debt WAS CAUSED BY A REPUBLICON to BEGIN with!! Maybe now this country will begin to pull itself out from underneath the 1%'s thumb!!

YAY!! GO OBAMA!!

Well my friend, I hope your right.

Here is my prediction though. For the next two years the economy will get worse and Obama will do nothing but blame the House, the European financial crises, and of course the nations rich (250k and above). This mantra will be driven home until the 2014 election when the Democrats will insist to America that they can't do anything unless the house is retaken. Americans will once again buy into the lie and the Democrats will win the House. Once they have complete control the nation will be in the same hopeless mess the State of Illinois is in which has been completely controlled by Democrats for the last decade.

The only difference is there will be no one left to tax and no higher branch of government to go to and get funding for all of the bankrupt programs.

Delusional, you are one of the blind people I referred to. Within the next year we will enter into another recession and then we will see how you feel about Obama.
Your job could be in jeopardy, your IRA could go in the crapper, your house may go into foreclosure. Meanwhile the burden on taxpayers will go up and up.

Too bad you can't see the forest for the trees,

I just wish these Republicans had been paying attention from 2001-2006 when the table was set for this Obama guy to get this chance to put the final nails in our coffin. In two years our budget plans will look very Libertarian because the credit will not be available cheap any longer. This will not be a depression..it will only feel like one.

I am curious to know what you believe is the 'fair share' for the rich. The top 10% of tax payers pay about 55% of all taxes and the top 20% pay about 74% of all taxes. I honestly want to know what you believe is fair. BTW...I do not earn over 250K per year.

China has one billion uneasy people living within their borders. That government is way too worried about internal revolt to get carried away outside their borders. China has seldom become involved far from their borders. Funny how people describe the United States future by how we become involved in other parts of the world. America has been fleeced through stolen military budgets. Some how right wingers think this government spending is pure when in reality is is corrupt as any government program. Enough of the BS flag waving..it only bankrupts us further.

Are you really this stupid or do you just repeat what Fox news tell you to repeat?

Why don't you take the time to check out what that 51% is made up of? Have you considered how many of our elderly are in this group and that they live on social security? That's not an entitlement, that's an annuity that they paid into.

Do you have a clue how many of our military members are in this group? Strangely enough, a great country like ours does not pay the people who defend us every day enough to stay much above the poverty level.

Have you thought about the fact that although they may not owe the federal government any taxes, they do pay payroll, state and local taxes?

http://www.cbpp.org/cms/index.cfm...

I don't think ANYONE should receive welfare for longer than six months and eligible for no more than six months every 2-3 years.

If you really want to complain, why not look into the corporate subsidies that we give out? Unfortunately, we give out way more corporate subsidies than we do in welfare every year and those are the same companies that are giving out million dollar bonuses to their corporate staff, while we foot the bill.

If you really want to look at taxes not being paid, check this out - 30 of our leading companies in the US paid ZERO income taxes.

I have never taken a dime in handouts, welfare or aid, but at least I have some compassion for those that need it, not those that abuse it.

You people just don't get it...there was a surplus when slick Willie left office and everyone was happy. Then the Bush clan got in and ran the deficit up, started 2 wars and you want to blame the democrats! You GOP's are really dumb!

Well Fox News is the only place I can go since all the other stations are left wing Democrats.

During the Obama's first two years he had majority in both the house and senate. Did he change tax laws in order to close corporate loopholes?? No.
In fact he hasn't addressed loopholes at any time during his presidency. He did however increase our debt by a couple trillion dollars.

Why don't you share with us all his accomplishments. Obamacare??? Just can't wait to see what a disaster that will be. Immigration???
Haven't seen any changes there either. The economy??? Worse now than when he took office.

Maybe you don't mind becoming a welfare state, but I do. I would like to keep more of the money I earn, not less. Democrats have moved this country toward socialism and I don't like it. It's people like you who are helping them do it. Wake up!!!!

Agree 100%! We didn't become the most powerful country in the world economically, militarily, and every other way by doing things like Europe or Canada or anyone else.

Point #1 - since Fox news has more viewers then all of the other stations combined, please tell me who is reaching more viewers with their lies - Fox or the "other stations"?

Point #2 - where did I say I was a supporter of Obama and I agreed with what he has done or not done in the last four years? Clearly many of us Republicans lean more towards the center than you conservative right leaning nut jobs realized. When asked to make our "choice" many of us chose to vote for the lesser of the two evils.

Quit being a sore loser and try to figure out how the republican party can get their views more in line with a broader audience than the tea party idiots. I predicted four years ago that the tea party would destroy and fragment the republican party and sadly, I was correct.

I was just putting the truth out there about the 51% spin BS that Fox news has led you all to believe is the truth, but as is typical, when you are given the truth you go on attack instead of just doing the right thing and saying - oops, I was misled by my kool aid drinking, fox watching habits.

As a true Reagan Republican I see clearly how flawed the Tea Partiers have been. They hate government waste but back all military operations with blind glee. They turn their backs on Hispanic America when the Hispanics are the only Americans remaining that have faith in self reliance and free enterprise. Most of us White folks have run for the safe harbor of government jobs. Romney lost because he had to run so far right to win the crazy Christian and Tea Party vote that he couldn't get near the center to win the national race. The great economic collapse coming is the fault of Republicans that spent all their efforts on social issues and forgot about sound economics.
