Bozo if that were true, why didn't it ever work when George W. Bush was losing 800,000 jobs a month. I think they were investing alright. Investing in China, Mexico, India, or better still looking for cheaper labor, so they could move their factories there. I bet what you know about economics could easily be placed inside a thimble, or do you know what a thimble is? The real question, what do you really know about anything? Except some smart ass answer, or how to be hateful as Hell.
In terms even you might understand:

The evidence from economic research indicates that tax rates—and, in particular, marginal tax rates—do indeed influence individual behavior when it comes to working, investing, saving, and entrepreneurship.
Perhaps most importantly, high and increasing marginal taxes
contribute to lower rates of economic growth, reduced rates of personal income growth, lower rates of capital formation, lower than expected aggregate labor supply, and reduced entrepreneurship.
In short, high and increasing marginal tax rates reduce economic growth by creating strong disincentives to hard work, savings, investment, and entrepreneurship.

On great thing about Obama and Brown winning in OH is the pressure to be good parents is off. Parents no longer have to put in much effort to raise their kids to be anything special. They won't have much of a future existing in the so called "Progressives" Orwellian Nightmare.

Have you ever taken a course in economics?
Find a post of mine where I've called for a tax increase. While they've been fiddling in D.C. the simplest, most sensible approach would have been to start slashing corporate welfare, eliminate loopholes, tighten laws on what can be considered capital gains versus income and implement spending cuts.

Oh, economics God, what happened when taxes were jacked in 1932? And again a few years later? I've taken economics, I've also worked within it. You cling to unproven theory, I tend to side with proven measures.

We can raise revenue without raising tax rates. Letting the Bush tax cuts expire, is not, in my mind, raising taxes. It is setting them back to where they should have been to begin with and possibly should have been raised in 2001-2003 to pay for the wars.

What type of name is that? Are you a horse Whisperer or something? And what the hell does Obama have to do with parents teaching their children you clown? The economy is jacked because of "trickle down piss economics". It goes like this : Fire middle class workers, send them to unemployment office, replace them with low third world workers; but they're in India, Latin America, and Asia. Finally, blame Democrats for the job loses. Look up "The Two Santa Clauses " on Google!

If you're complaining about the GOP during this fiscal mess, you're advocating higher taxes.

They probably would have paid you a lump sum to leave campus as well if you would have simply asked.

Not at all.

Because you're a boorish dolt whose presence would deter others from enrolling their children.

BREAKING NEWS........"my way or the highway" Obama meets..offers nothing.. and nothing changes.......Market falls another 315 since 2pm. Luckily for the Congressional Democrats none of their supporters have retirements linked to 401k's. Unions pay for Democrats campaigns so they don't have to worry about financial disaster for the other 90% of American families.

Shouts of "How do ya like me NOW!" rang out in the White House as America braces for potential fiscal collapse.

Just what exactly has the GOP offered up during this fiscal mess that they helped create? More tax cuts?

You're playing the Rush mis-association game. This goes even beyond 'if you're not with us you're against us' It's beyond a quantum leap and displays the prominent Republican trait of no logic.

We are doomed to fail. We should have known better than to trust Obama with another term. How sad for our children. How sad for us all.

In terms I understand, however you are a hardheaded
Republican, you do not have the brains to comprehend.

According to the federal government, the Bush tax cuts
were responsible for $2.6 trillion to the debt between
2001 and 2010 and the government during that time spent
more than $400 billion in just servicing that debt;
the cuts did not generate increased economic activity
(as promised) and depleted the public treasury and
tax collections dropped to their lowest share of the
economy in 60 years.

Most historians, the voters after 6 years of George W.
Bush, being in office figured out what a lousy President,
he really had been.

Where's your link and source? And what makes you think I'm a Republican? I'm an independent. The GOP is too far left for my taste.
Now, tell me why everything went in the toilet after the Democrats took the House and Senate after the 2006 election.
You're challenging LIG for the title of most moronic poster on Topix, kid.
