<quoted text>Step up to the plate and give the President some REVENUES:
Why Have Corporate Tax Revenues Declined? Another Look
http://elsa.berkeley.edu/~auerbach/AJA_CESifo...
Figure 1 shows U.S. corporate income taxes as a share of GDP and of federal revenues for fiscal years 1962-2006. The two series track each other closely because overall revenues as a share of GDP have remained rather stable during the period, with an average
just below 20 percent. During most of the 1960s, corporate taxes accounted for more than one fifth of revenues and nearly 4 percent of GDP. But these figures fell steadily during the 1970s and early 1980s so that, by 1983, corporate taxes accounted for just 1 percent of GDP and 6 percent of federal revenues.(cont.)
Revenues are at an all time high, check this out, Hoover:

I get so tired of educating those who refuse to acknowledge the truth. For the last time, the Bush Tax cuts resulted in 54 straight months of economic growth. The recession occurred after Democrats gained control of Congress and began wildly borrowing and spending trillions of dollars and implementing their bone-headed and supremely irresponsible fiscal policy.

The economic numbers don't lie. Take a look for yourself:
http://forecast-chart.com/chart-gdp-rate.html

The economy grew every single quarter until Q4 of 2008. That's solid continual economic growth that directly resulted from the Bush Tax Cuts.

The economy didn't take a shit until a year and a half after Democrats took over Congress and their socialist policies were in place.

YOU have been as evil and vile as most of the posters you condemn daily. "Outspokenly obnoxious" doesn't come close to a reasonable definition of your behavior on many occasions.
You continuously point out that Obama was elected President. We KNOW! I am over the election, but I am NOT over what is happening to this great country. You seem totally blind to the fact that 49% of the voters did NOT vote for Obama. That is a large number.
Do you really believe that I and many others come to this thread to just debate YOU? I am here because I feel so strongly about my beliefs and values. Based on your posts, I feel sure you also feel strongly about yours. That is your right but you do not seem to understand that I have that right also.
Race is not a factor for me in the least. There are definitely conservative racists but there are also liberal racists. I will not support a President (white, black, pink, green, liberal, or conservative) who I do not trust, respect, or agree with their ideologies. I don't think you would either. Obviously, his ideologies are in line with yours and you support him. I will not "stand behind" him or support him. That is my prerogative as it is yours to support him.
47% supported Romney. Let's get that straight. NOT 49%. The other 2% went to other candidates. Don't support him. He doesn't care. But, do keep in mind that he is EVERY American's President. There are no liberal racists. Period. It's totally incompatible with the philosophy of liberalism which requires an open mind. Racism is the bastion of closed narrow minds - the ignorant, the uninformed, the scared, the walled off and rigid people in America. It has no place in the mentality of a liberal.

I don't know what you come to debate or who you come to debate. Those of us who don't buy into your views feel free to speak up and say so. You don't have to like it, but just as I deal with lunatics almost daily who call me names like Buttercup (implying I'm a cow), you'll have to deal with folks who don't know exactly what your problem is, but believe it is definitely not respectful or thoughtful. Anyhow, that's my opinion, not that you asked. You have every right to be wrong, and others have every right to point out to you how seriously wrong you are. Expect that when you come on this thread.

The US Officially Has Highest Corporate Tax Rate In The World

With Japan dropping their corporate tax rate to 38%[], America now leads the world in corporate tax rate at 39.2% reports the OECD.

While most nations have seen their rates steadily decline over the past 20 years, America has had a relatively stagnant rate. As Taxfoundation.com cites, there have been 133 major corporate tax rate cuts globally since 2006. Meanwhile, America's continues to remain close to 40% as it has since the late 1980's.

IT'S NOT FREE MARKET CAPITALISM. It's become a very different and ugly kind of economic model more closely akin to something right out of the Middle Ages.

How about tax payers making you whole again and providing bonuses to boot while those same taxpayers suffer foreclosure and job loss, cut hours, disappearing benefits and desperation. What's the penalty for hiring illegal labor? A wrist slap and no dent whatsoever on your profits except for a very very few well-publicized cases to "reassure" everybody that everything is on the up and up. Oh, sure it is.

Reid, Race, and the Party-Based Double Standard

Watching Gwen Ifill, Al Sharpton and a plethora of African American news reporters and academics on MSNBC defend and excuse Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's racial slight makes you realize why the Democratic Party can take black voters for granted.

There are absolutely no consequences for liberal elites to have differing public and private views on political issues. The Democratic Party even went so far to dismiss the disparaging comments by Joe Biden about Barack Obama being clean and articulate to nominate and confirm him as Vice President at their convention.

Today, the sitting Vice President stands as the symbol of liberal elite's racial double standard.

California State Board Of Equalization Passes New Gas Tax, 3-2 Vote

In March 2010, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed two fuel tax measures (ABX8 6 and SB 70) which adjusted the rates of the sales and excise tax on gasoline that would help close a gap and balance the budget in 2010.

“This tax swap was the only way that they could take the money from the road fund to try and balance the budget in 2010,” said George Runner, Member of the State Board of Equalization.

These two laws created a new tax structure for gasoline and mandated the BOE to adjust the state gasoline excise tax rate by Mar. 1 of each year. This rate adjustment ensures the overall state taxes consumers pay at the pump remain the same as they would have been under the prior tax structure.

Interesting. This one caught my eye:

"And believe it or not, some millionaires have been collecting unemployment on the shoulder of taxpayers. The IRS reports that in 2009, 2,362 millionaires collected a total of $20,799,000 in jobless benefits. Eighteen individuals with adjusted gross incomes of ten million dollars or more received a total of $220,000 in unemployment payments that year".

Liberals are very good at defending, excusing, and forgiving their racist politicians.

If the democrat's minority base ever found out the truth - how politicians like Biden and Reid really think of them - the party would cease to exist as we know it.

Heck, the sitting VP and Senate Majority Leader are both racist democrats.

I have a Bissel Power force I paid $39.00 For new from Walmart 12 years ago. I`v only had to change the belt twice. And buy new filters for it once. The filters are reusable. All I do is clean it up now and then. It still works like new.

My Kirby sits in storage because it is too heavy. But it works very well also. Does a nice job for shampooing the carpet.
