Some AEI scholars are considered to be some of the leading architects of the second Bush administration's public policy.[7] More than twenty AEI scholars and fellows served either in a Bush administration policy post or on one of the government's many panels and commissions. Among the prominent former government officials now affiliated with AEI are former U.S. ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton, now an AEI senior fellow; former chairman of the National Endowment for the Humanities Lynne Cheney, a longtime AEI senior fellow; former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, now an AEI senior fellow; former Dutch member of parliament Ayaan Hirsi Ali, an AEI visiting fellow; and former deputy secretary of defense Paul Wolfowitz, now an AEI visiting scholar.

Our commander and chief just invoked his executive privilege in the Eric Holder and "fast and furious" case. This means that the president can now personally withhold the documents requested by Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa that pertain to the "fast and furious" debacle. Obama could turn them over but I bet he waits to see how this plays out with voters. If there is a severe backlash from the American public against Holder and Obama then Obama will grab Holder by the collar and sling him under the bus and keep on truckin. If the public is luke warm about the issue then Obama will simply hold the documents from Issa and Issa will be stuck out on a limb by himself with nowhere to go. This is a great example of socialistic liberal "transparency". This is also a great example of why Obama is the worst president this nation has ever seen. That's ok, we will change all of that on November 6.

Nothing makes a heterosexual a higher life form than a homosexual. There are only 2% of the people in America that are gay so why should the 98% have to watch what they say? There is a natural backlash that happens when the media pushes someones lifestyle choices on everyone else and hypersesitizes the issue to the point where no one can say anything even remotely negative against homosexuality. It is not near as mainstream as the media would have you believe. The rhetoric in you post proves exactly what I am saying.

Also note from the quote. There is no evidence (Something that BARNEYII is so quick to criticize others for) to connect the falling tax rate to a "less prosperous" nation or inflation or a "lack of jobs."
One of the leading causes of the economic meltdown was the United States tax code. Whether it's tax rates, loopholes or tax credits, the tax code has contributed to a controversial economy that is still struggling to make its way out of the recession. While the majority of Democrats have tried to repeal the Bush era tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans, Republicans are asking for even more.

On "CBS This Morning," Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) told host Charlie Rose that he believed the U.S tax code was unfair and that it put too much pressure on the wealthy.


I understand full well that our friends on the other side live to every day to raise taxes...Almost 70 percent of the federal revenue is provided by the top 10 percent of taxpayers now. Between 45 and 50 percent of Americans pay no income tax at all.


The problem with McConnell's statement is that, at best, it's misleading. McConnell claims that nearly 50% of Americans don't pay income taxes, but he fails to mention the other numbers. The Americans McConnell is speaking of pay a state tax, a sales tax, a gas tax and many others. They also pay into the payroll tax of Social Security and Medicare. The reason many Americans don't pay a net federal income tax is because they make such a small amount of income that they qualify for a tax return.

Mitch McConnell also notes that 70% of the revenue paid to the United States is done by the top 10% of income earners. McConnell fails to mention that even before the rescission in 2007, the top 1% of income earners held nearly 35% of the country's wealth and the top 20% held nearly 85% of the country's wealth. In contrast to the top 20%, the bottom 80% of income earners owned only 15% of the nation's wealth. Since the financial collapse of 2008, those numbers have increased, concentrating the wealth even further up the income ladder.

The concentration of American wealth has gone on for over three decades since Ronald Reagan was elected president and came into office in January of 1981. Slashing the top tax rate from 70% down to only 28% by the time he left office, Reagan planted the seed of income inequality. As wages for the working class have remained stagnant and even dropped, pay and bonuses for the wealthiest Americans have increased. With men like Jude Wanniski, Art Laffer and Alan Greenspan laying down the foundation for Republican lawmakers to follow, the United States tax system has benefited the rich while hurting low and middle class workers.

Mitch McConnell continued his interview with Charlie Rose and gave his opinion on the condition of the tax code.


"We have an extraordinarily progressive tax code already...It is a mess and it needs to be revisited again.

Mitch McConnell can claim that the tax code is rigged for the wealthy to pay more, but the facts and numbers just don't add up. McConnell is correct when stating that the tax code is a mess, but it's not because it's progressive. In order to get the United States economy back to where it needs to be there are many things that need to happen. A change in trade policy and true banking reform are at the top of the list, but reforming the tax code is just as essential. A progressive tax system isn't about taxing the rich and having them pay for everything, but it is about every American paying their fair share of taxes to continue the American dream for future generations.

"socialistic liberal" Are you saying that is a bad thing?

The term "social liberalism" is often used interchangeably with "modern liberalism".[10] The Liberal International is the main international organisation of liberal parties, which include, among other liberal variants, social liberal parties. It affirms the following principles: human rights, free and fair elections and multiparty democracy, social justice, tolerance, social market economy, free trade, environmental sustainability and a strong sense of international solidarity.[11]
