willard doesnt give details of his plans that way they cant fact check him. 5 trillion in tax cuts means 5 trillion in less revenue means 5 trillion more added to the debt. unless you do what? cut jobs, cut loopholes, cut SS, or raise taxes thats where willard failed last night his math is a failure and no details for us to look at. the retardicans blindly followed bush for 8 years and lead us right into another recession. I will not blindly follow a person whos says they have a plan but wont present it for us to look at.

willard stood on stage and asked for another handout from tax payers to create jobs. someone tell willard that is not how a robust economy works. Consumer demand is what drives a robust economy. republicans say they build things all by themselves yep sure right after they get the tax payer handout.

Romney re: Big Bird. As expected of anyone whose back is against the wall,Obama has begun his belittling and attempting to embarass attack. Losers will always glom onto an inconsequental point and beat at it to draw the spotlight away from the important issues. Poor ol' Barack. He has been shown he has a real opponent.

President Obama said that the middle class drives the economy. I am done with the trickle down especially as drastic as Romney wants it. President Obama says he will fight for the middle class and I believe it. I have seen what the trickle down does and how President Clinton changed the economy. It is time to have another 20 years of Democrats to get things back to where they were.

Vote Democrat middle class or pay more taxes. They might not be fed taxes but with all of the cuts that Romney wants,you can be sure that your State and local taxes will go way up. And like always the higher income people will get richer and the middle class will have less. The Republican way

Well I'd say this thread pretty much bears out that the debates are pointless. They obviously don't change minds as the above comments indicate that whoever was a person's preference before the debate really kicked butt in their eyes.

When Obama was crying about the banks making bad loans I was really hoping Mitt would go for the jugular and ask who was the lawyer who sued the banks forcing them to make the bad loans. Who was the president who passed legislation forcing banks to have a higher % of sub-prime "Bad" loas on their books? Obama and Clinton, seems the people who complain and blame the most are the ones most at fault.

If you collect 1 penny from 60 million people, is that more money then collecting 1 penny from 1 million people.

Well that is how you collect revenue, tons more jobs !!!, but if you where to raise prices, like a store to collect more revenue, you will have less people in the store.

So what is it that you Dem's don't get about that !?, just charging more tax does not collect more revenue.But if you had millions of people paying in a little bit, the tax stays low for everybody and the government gets more cash and maybe even afford that free health care.

Obama added 1000 plus to the endangered species, closing coal mines, and giving money away to green energy and just gets wasted.

now if we had $16 trillion in the bank, go ahead spend your brains away, but right now we can't.

Great! That means you won't blindly follow Obama will you since he won't clarify what he is going to do other than "please give me 4 more years and be patient and all will be well." Yeah, right!

Now that will be interesting since Obama's own VP said the middle class has been non existent since 2008. Who has been President? Oooopppps, that's right, Obama! Yup, you vote Democrat like a good lemming.

Romney stated he has to cut a bunch of federal jobs.... Fire people, his true passion in life.
He said he will repeal Obamacare, and keep the parts he likes, I would just like to know how that is possible.
He actually used the term trickle down economics. I believe history has shown even though regean was a god, that did not work.
Cut programs and give them to the states????? What does that mean?
Give Medicare to the states? Give SS to the states? So the elderly cant move from state to state without bullshit?

I think the best comment of the debate was Obama saying in Romney's plan for small business, the Donald is a small business... And Trump does not like to believe anything about himself is small.

I love the GOP propaganda machine spewing their junk today.
Seems like a bunch of looses getting pissy. Ecause they lost yet again.

As usual you back of the bus stupid Republiscum fail Econ 101.

You think that charging a lower tax rate creates jobs. Where? How? Prove that utter nonsense. What a stupid person you are. This is why we were in the Bush ditch.

This is why Reagan destroyed the USA's balance sheet and turned us from the world's largest creditor into the world's largest debtor. 100% of Republiscums destroy the USA's finances and, like the filthy scumbags you are, blame it on the left which is always cleaning up after your stinky messes.

That is why you continually follow your Mormon Messiah Mitt and ignore the fact that 100% of what the scumbag says is a lie. You are following and sucking the feet of a pathological liar. What does that say about you.

Romonoid wants to kill Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid, public education, the U.S.Postal service, Public Libraries, Police, Fire,...
Privatization of everything so you have to pay much more than you do now for these services because privatization works on the FOR PROFIT model.
