How about burying the Fleabagging Fascists chances of governing now, rather than watch them do it to themselves?
Now there's a shovel ready job we can believe in!

They aren't in office yet. You can't be that stupid. But when they are in office they didn't promise to create jobs. They promised to lower taxes, and reduce spending so Corporations, and Businesses can create jobs. Only Democrats think they can create jobs, but I guess they didn't want to, because they didn't even try.

Yes, the Republicans won the election, but you do know they won't be sworn into office until Jan. 4th? You didn't know that? That is 3rd grade civics. It's alright. You probbly went to Public school with a Union teacher
Yeah, but if the Dems think they can pass anything, the people will remember in 2012.

They will seal their fate if they try any tricks!

When Bush tax cuts expire in 2011 it will put the top tax rate back where it was under Clinton at 39.6%. There hasn’t ever been a better time in our history than now to be rich in this country except for just prior to the Great Depression when the top marginal income tax rate was 25%. Since then the top rate has been as high as 94% and as low as 28%(for a three-year stretch during the Reagan era). It was above the current rate of 35% for seventy-two of the previous seventy-seven years. The top marginal rate during Eisenhower’s presidency was 91%. Nobody even put up a stink.

The rich are now entering their tenth year of Bush’s Low-Tax Party for his “base.” They’ve been given hundreds of billions of dollars in the form of a 4.6% tax reduction on their earned income and a 5% tax reduction on their income from capital gains. The money the rich received from these enormous tax breaks was supposed to somehow trickle down to the other 95% of us. Wealthy entrepreneurs were ideally supposed to use those tax savings to provide increased benefits for the working class in the form of salaries and other benefits like health care and retirement plans. That didn’t happen.

Surely you do not think they pay their tax rate on all their income. They have loopholes and they know how to use the system. Percentage wise, they pay less taxes on their income than the rest of us and they are not using any of that extra money to creat jobs.

Well you certainly prove that you can't fix stupid.........raising taxes during a depression or recession is paramount to hoping everyone goes out of business and that you hope everyone looses their jobs..........just so you can be rewarded for setting on your but and still want a big income.

This tax break is temporary. We should let it expire like it was supposed to do. Like Bush said it would.

Well sweet cheeks, you have to remember when Bush said that we had a thriving economy, 4.6 unemployment and a dollar worth a dollar plus we were not in a recession at the time.......you don't raise taxes on those making 250,000 and above because they are the small business owners and hire 80% of the jobs out there.........Obama's stupidity about job creation shows the magnatude of his stupidtiy or just how stong his desire to destroy whats left of the american economy..........which may be your job next.
