I am in favor of the minority who, until know, has kept the socialists in check pretty good. Now that the democrats in the senate have used the nuclear option taking away the filibuster, the minority party can be steam rolled by the majority. I remember the republicans trying to do that back when they had control of the senate. Obama was against the nuclear option back then but now he is in favor. Flip Flop?

Wages stagnate, full-time 40 hour work week jobs vanish, benefits are reserved for professionals and managers. Sh*t changes. You have to deal with reality - no matter how much it stinks.

Once upon a time in America, our congressional representatives could sit down at a table and hammer out a deal across party lines for the GOOD OF THE PEOPLE and THIS COUNTRY. That's what we elected them to do.

Can you point to a time in history where such scant legislation was passed through Congress? Do you have an example of when another U.S. President met up with a stone wall that refused to move off a dime repeatedly until we had our credit rating lowered and were at imminent risk of defaulting on our obligations?

When was that, and why did it happen?

Like I said, and in other words I'm sure you can follow:

"When the going gets tough, the tough get going."

Whatever it takes to make things work and progress this nation. The first step always involves recognition of the problem.

I'm actually a moderate who supports my President because there's nothing moderate, rational or helpful coming from across the aisle. If that ever happens, I'll be the first to say "WOW". It's not there. There's nothing there but obstinence and obstructionism and politicizing the economy and well-being of America and Americans.
I'm very tired of asking you morons to PLEASE tell us who and what and how 99% of us can be assisted, or life can be improved, with Republican objectives. WHO has any ideas that are helpful to this country? WHY do you support them? WHAT legislation have they proposed that doesn't harm the most vulnerable and feather the nests of the already wealthy? WHEN will you open your eyes to the reality that trickle down has not trickled down? It's a myth.
This was my point exactly REWBA.
The retard is literately talking gibberish, the Bush tax rollback which to date would have been the most significant help for US has been thoroughly debated each of the three times Obama has had the chance to roll them back. Each three times the retard NTR made excuses for Obama when he didn't roll them back. Now she's trying to deflect from my point and put the blame on a lack of ideas.
As I just said, it's pointless to try to debate anything with retarded ass-kissers.

PS ntr i dont give a shit about you and your 99% anymore than you do want help try helping yourself that was the beauty of America asshole

JFK 50: THE FISCAL LEGACY
http://www.fitsnews.com/2013/11/22/jfk-50-the...
Upon taking office in 1961, Kennedy inherited an economy in recession (like Barack Obama did in 2009). America’s productivity was falling, its unemployment was rising and its income levels were slipping.

Unlike Obama, though, Kennedy didn’t borrow trillions of dollars and blow it on unnecessary government.

What did he do? He cut taxes – for all income earners.

And what did Kennedy’s tax cuts produce? The second-longest economic expansion in American history … which lasted all the way until the recession of 1969-70.

Obama? More than five years after passing his “stimulus” plan (and engaging in a host of other interventionist measures) he’s still presiding over chronically high unemployment and anemic economic growth.

This stuff isn’t rocket science, people … tax cuts spur growth. Meanwhile government growth only “stimulates” one thing: Government.

Liberals like to say JFK’s tax cuts were more targeted that Ronald Reagan or George W. Bush’s – and that they were specifically crafted to help the middle class. Both statements are flat out false. Kennedy’s tax cut was much bigger than Reagan or Bush’s – and its relief was spread out all along the income spectrum.

“Contrasting the size of the tax cuts with national income shows that the Kennedy tax cut, representing 1.9 percent of income, was the single largest first-year tax-cut of the post-WW II era,” an analysis from The Tax Foundation reveals.“The Reagan tax cuts represented 1.4 percent of income while none of the Bush tax cut even breaks 1 percent of income. The Kennedy tax cuts would only have been surpassed in size by combining all three Bush tax cuts into a single package.”

Meanwhile columnist Jeff Jacoby of The Boston Globe notes that Kennedy’s plan ”cut the top marginal rate a whopping 21 percentage points.”

So much for those liberal myths …

John F. Kennedy vowed in his inaugural address to “get America moving again.” And he did – by cutting taxes.

Don’t get us wrong, Kennedy wasn’t perfect on tax and spending issues. Far from it. He endorsed a lot of liberal government programs and embraced a lot of non-core government functions. On December 14, 1962 – less than a year before he died – Kennedy gave an address to the Economic Club of New York. During that speech, he outlined a number of these items (including expanded government intervention in education and more federal funding for “research and technology”).

But it’s what Kennedy said after touting these programs that matters …

“The most direct and significant kind of federal action aiding economic growth is to make possible an increase in private consumption and investment demand–to cut the fetters which hold back private spending,” he said.“The final and best means of strengthening demand among consumers and business is to reduce the burden on private income and the deterrents to private initiative which are imposed by our present tax system; and this administration pledged itself last summer to an across-the-board, top-to-bottom cut in personal and corporate income taxes to be enacted and become effective in 1963.”

Then Kennedy – the greatest orator the White House had seen in a century (and perhaps the greatest ever)– offered one of the most concise encapsulations of limited government/ fiscal conservative ideology we’ve ever heard.

“In short, to increase demand and lift the economy, the federal government’s most useful role is not to rush into a program of excessive increases in public expenditures, but to expand the incentives and opportunities for private expenditures,” he said.

Amen, Mr. President. Amen.

Too bad Obama didn’t follow your advice …

The irony in all this? Such talk today is considered the realm of the right wing “whack-a-doodle.” It’s the sort of rhetoric websites like FITSNews get tagged as “radical” for espousing.

TAXING THE RICH IS GOOD FOR THE ECONOMY


by Robert Reich
Marketplace for Wednesday, April 18, 2012


One of the most pernicious economic falsehoods you'll hear during the next seven months of political campaigning is there's a necessary tradeoff between fairness and growth. By this view, if we raise taxes on the wealthy the economy can't grow as fast.

Wrong. Taxes were far higher on top incomes in the three decades after World War II than they've been since. And the distribution of income was far more equal. Yet the American economy grew faster in those years than it's grown since tax rates were slashed in 1981.

This wasn't a post-war aberration. Bill Clinton raised taxes on the wealthy in the 1990s, and the economy produced faster job growth and higher wages than it did after George W. Bush slashed taxes on the rich in his first term.

If you need more evidence, consider modern Germany, where taxes on the wealthy are much higher than they are here and the distribution of income is far more equal. But Germany's average annual growth has been faster than that in the United States.(cont.)
