99% of the Bush tax cuts just got extended and about to made permanent, idiot. Try to keep up.
The old fashion way?? Higher taxes?? DUH
Like taxpayer funded shovel ready, cash for clunkers and 17 taxpayer funded green energy projects by nancy, obama and crew?
So if someone is barely breaking even....and the dems impose more taxes and higher minimum wage..you think they can stay in business. Nobama and the dems went to economics class on the short bus.
Nothing is "permanent".

The Bush Tax cuts had the same effect on the economy that the Reagan, Kennedy, and Harding/Coolidge tax cuts had. They created sustained economic growth and jobs. The facts are as follows…
Year GDP Growth Rate Unemployment Rate
2003 2.5% 6.0%
2004 3.9% 5.5%
2005 3.2% 5.1%
2006 2.8% 4.6%
2007 2.0% 4.6%
These statistics are readily available at government websites, and could take as long as 10 minutes to research.
Does anyone on the left realize that Noblumber just made 99% of the Bush tax cuts........permanent and as far as economics and anti-terror policies Bush designed everything nobama is using??
The dems are really hilarious. Oh well, back to Hawaii we go!
Things nobama doesn't tell you!! The left is gullible.
Hmmm, I notice you left out '08,'09,'10,'11, & '12 when those same tax cuts were in place yet did nothing to create jobs or gow the economy.

Watch how the economy takes off now that the rich are paying the Clinton-era tax rates again.

If they want to make more money they are going to have to do it the old fashioned way and hire people and grow the business.
Small businesses won't hire more people, they'll reduce their staff (fire the slackers) and focus on building smaller, more efficient teams of employees. Saves wasting money on the Obamacare mess, too.

Conservatives are opposed to spending when the so-called "disaster aid" bill is 80% pork and payoffs to special interest.

Maybe you should stop adding water to your pool. You'd still be up to your ears in bullshit.

Sorry Larry, but there's no bullshit regarding the payoffs in the so-called "aid" bill.

Budget watchdogs have dubbed the 94-page emergency-spending bill “Sandy Scam”.

Piss, moan, and lie all you want, but we all know you thieving POS democrats have no problem handing out our money for votes.

Dems, GOP...hypocrite dirtbags, the lot of them.

So you all know this, huh? Of course, Republicans are above such chicanery. They just like to hand out money to those who don't need it.

Yeah, and so do you. Tell me why these idiots can't simply allocate money to the people who need it and ONLY to the people who need it?

Read my post again, I'm no republican supporter. I think they ALL need to disappear. They supposedly work for us, remember?

No, we're talking about the administration you idiots elected and the fact they can't cut through the red tape like your fearless leader promised.

If the bill was for the victims ONLY, the money would be in their hands already.

p.s.- Since you're too stupid to figure it out, a budget would deal with emergency funding. GFY
