Bush cut taxes and then bloated the "Defense" budget on two major wars and more unnecessary spending...thus running up huge deficits. That came back to haunt us when the recession hit in 2008, of course, and spending our way out of it pushed the debt even higher.
Mr. Obama wants ONLY the tax rates for the wealthy to return to pre-Bush levels. He has said REPEATEDLY he will not raise middle-class rates.
Does this help you? You seem clueless.
Tell me do you believe everything OBAMA say's? Tax on middle class did go up.

The tax break that was 4.2 and went up to 6.2 on everybody that makes under 250,000 dollars. Watch the news,or if you work look at your payroll check.

Topix repubs will bend themselves into pretzels to blame President Obama for a deadline The House created for themselves, but yet again could not meet.

Topix Repubs blame Pres Obama for Boehner refusing to bring the Senate bill up for vote, while his caucus spun their wheels trying to come up with something repubs in the House could get past repubs in the House.

Topix Repubs, NOW wanted Pres Obama to insert himself into the workings of the House two months ago, when the House was trying to get their act together.

These same Topix Repubs who claim Pres Obama wants to be a "Dictator", now wanted Pres Obama to do the work of Repubs in the House.

These same Topix Repubs blame Pres Obama on Boehner's pulling back from a deal to tout his "Plan B" that he didn't even bring up for vote cause it failed from the start.

I guess Pres Obama should have forced Boehner to not do "Plan B" and promising it would pass, using Presidential powers that don't exist.

Keep bending idiots....fortunately for the rest of us who live in the realm of reality, we can put blame on the House's inability to get things done where blame should be placed.

Boehner and repubs in House has made this the worst House ever...led by the worst Speaker ever.

It works like this, Jimbo. Someone claims something is true, I ask for proof, and either they supply it, or don't. If they don't, I assume they don't know what they're talking about - kinda like you.

I know you don't know what debate or discussion ARE, but that might help you figure it out a little better. Let me know if it helped!:)

Yet hypocrite Rubio has never uttered a word about the hundreds millions of dollars of tax money that go to his Miami Cuban voting base in FAILED "Cuba libre" type funds such as radio Marti.

Talk about grotesque waste of tax payer money and Rubio a typial Miami hypocrite.

Rubio is a self serving ,con man and the male version of Sarah Palin.

Taxes are rising, but it could have been more painful.

This is the MSM's way to soften the blow that you were lied to again, when Obama said only the top two percents taxes would go up.

Everyone from 20,000 per year up gets a tax increase. SUPRISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSE!

It was hardly a suprise, and certainly not a secret that the payroll tax reduction was only temporary.

Social security is already running deficits, so it's just stupid to continue that tax cut.

People will have to decide between a lower payroll tax deduction or a lower benefit when they retire.
