I would not worry about sock puppet boy. He has completely lost all respect from Theist. He has floundered on other threads. It was really funny! He came charging in to the rescue to other atheist (or his puppets) and it blew up in his face, he is truly pathetic He really looks and plays the fool well.

You can back into your bus station bathroom stall, knobjob, but then if you backed in, you would lose half your customer base.

Polish up your keyboard: you got another four years of whining and tea bag tonsil massages.

Start with draft dodger's five trillion dollar hole.
Remember we are already in a 16 trillion dollar hole...
Now to get back to where we are now- if Romney were to dig the hole another five trillion dollars deeper- he has to come up with offsets.
He says: I got offsets! and they aren't going to hurt the middle class!
To be sure: he may not have a complete list of all offsets... but unless he is completely full of crap... he should be able to rattle off some trillion dollar loopholes.
He can't.
And if he were to say... to hell with it, I don't have to name these loopholes because my plan is to close all of them (including the two most used middle class loop holes... which he says he isn't going to do): close them all it doesn't add up to five trillion.
It doesn't add up.
Catch up.

Stephanie Cutter (Obama's Deputy Liar) already admitted they just made the 5 trillion dollars up.

Sure.

It's a good thing Obama came along and closed gitmo and reduced the deficit.

...and lowered the sea level.

He learned that campaign talk doesn't work when your opponent is on the same stage, 10 feet away.

Spanked like a baby.

You are a liar. Even if what you say were true, the merits of the pro-life position is not diminished.

You employ what is called a "red herring".

You just aren't smart enough to be good at it.

That is the problem, from my perspective - can anybody give any specifics. Let's say a 30 year old man from any demographic group opens up a business, what credits will apply to the guy, and what must he achive for this to happen?
And then, on a large scale, how will this affect taxation and the national budget. I am all for lowering tax rates and/or credits - Hell knows, I can do with a tax break. But if we lower tax rates, our budget decreases... How is that revenue replaced? Will it be replaced? If not, where are we going to cut? Or are we simply robbing Peter to pay Paul?
Lowering tax rates does not reduce the budget - it has zero effect on the budget.

It can affect revenue, but a static analysis is not appropriate because lower rates affect economic activity, which affects revenue collected.

Cutting marginal tax rates and capital gains tax rates INCREASES revenue to the treasury. The largest amount of revenue ever collected in a year was in 2007 - with the evil Bush tax rate cuts in place.

So how are deficits blamed on tax rate cuts?

Simple. They lie. People in government want to spend more every year, and they do. That is their source of power - giving things away. If they can convince you they are going to give you something, but tax somebody else for it, they are in.

That's why Obama is president - the idiot vote.
