Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

NO NEW TAXES!!!
Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy

...In reality, states that levy personal income taxes, including the states with the highest top rates, have seen more economic growth per capita and less decline in their median income level over the last ten years than the nine states that do not tax income. Unemployment rates have been nearly identical across states with and without income taxes.

– Four of the nine states without income taxes are actually doing worse than the average state in regards to economic growth per capita: Texas, Tennessee, Florida, and Nevada.

– Five of the nine states without income taxes are doing worse than average in terms of median income growth: New Hampshire, Florida, Tennessee, Alaska, and Nevada.

– Six of the nine states without income taxes had higher than average annual unemployment rates over the last decade: Texas, Florida, Tennessee, Washington, Alaska, and Nevada.

Tax increases are not spending reductions.
Obama already forced huge tax increases in Obamacare and January 1 of this year.
Hooray for the sequester: finally some spending cuts.
Here's hoping you get furloughed.
Loopholes cost the government money.

Too bad the Republicans couldn't find a single loop hole to close.

NBC's David Gregory and House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) butted heads during an interview when the speaker insisted that President Obama did not have a plan to replace sequestration and Gregory disagreed. The interview was taped Friday afternoon after Boehner met with the president to discuss sequestration and aired on "Meet the Press" Sunday.

"Mr. Speaker, that's just not true," Gregory said. "They've made it very clear, as the president just did, that he has a plan that he's put forward that involves entitlement cuts, that involves spending cuts. That you've made a choice, as have Republicans, to leave tax loopholes in place and you'd rather have those and live with all these arbitrary cuts."

Boehner called Gregory's objection "nonsense."

"Well David, that's just nonsense. If they had a plan, why wouldn't Senate Democrats go ahead and pass it," he said.

Boehner returned to this point throughout the interview, insisting that Democrats do not have a plan because the Democratic-controlled Senate has not voted on one.

The unemployment rate in Texas is 6.1%, compared to 7.8% nationally.

The unemployment rate in California, with sky-high taxes, is 9.8%.

The fact remains that the resolution would not have passed with Democrat votes, so the credit and/or blame is shared.
No, not really.

Because Bush obtained support on the basis of lies.

So you can't blame Democrats for voting the wrong way because Bush deceived them.

And face facts. Over 2/3 of the pro war vote came from Republicans.

Which "loophole" do you want to close: home mortgage interest deduction, state and local tax deductions, or charitable deductions?

Still running from your posts.
The topic was my response to one of your dumbass right whiner buddies who claimed that Obama submitted on two budgets.
Then you jumped in having a GD fit screaming about these budgets.
So it was you that changed the subject while failing to admit that Obama did indeed submit budgets every year.
You still can't admit t.
What a pathetic POS loser.
GFY
"real dumb"
It's Sunday. Calm down, don't let your crap get so hot. Hey "real dumb" I commented not at all on how many budgets that president nobama presented, I did comment they were so inane he could not get a single vote to support the crap he offered. The subject was budgets, I did not change the topic I simply said the loser occupying the white house has nary a clue. In your dim world president nobama offered budgets in the mind of the sane those who actually thing he presented fantasy.
The question in my mind is when is the president going to make a decision on the pipeline. Two questions actually, who is going to piss off?
- The unions by not okaying the pipe line and the thousands of high paying jobs it would provide, or
- The eco idiots who piss and moan.
Should be interesting.

The whiner and Chief out blaming Republicans again demonstrating his ineptness to Lead!! The president has the latitude to pick and choose where and what to Cut but he chooses to play Politics … Good grief, the entire sequester would have reduced last year’s deficit from $1.33&#8201;trillion to $1.24&#8201;trillion. A fraction of a fraction!!

......don't forget the Republicans get the blame in all the polls!

George Bush administration gave us the 2008 stock market crash as voters remembered in the 2012 election

Only one Republican candidate for president gained a majority of the popular vote in the last 20 years.

There was too much greed in this country before the crisis. I was convinced it would be our undoing. As it turns out, I was right.
The golden opportunity to reprioritize our values came and went. Instead the pendulum swung completely in the opposite direction.
If greed is one end of the spectrum, then lack of incentive is the other which is just as dangerous.
There is a happy medium. We can only hope we find it before we go too far the other way.
