Not only was Obama strong in states with the highest percentage of college graduates, he was also strong in states with the highest average household incomes. For example, the five states with the HIGHEST average household incomes (which, not coincidentally, were also among the states with the highest percentage of college graduates).

not obammys protein that is higher?

Let's do some math. You libs a great at math aren't you? Obammys current budget deficit is $1.4 trillion. Are you following so far? The most generous estimates of the tax increase says we will get an extra $84 billion a year from the tax increases. Now I haven't even figured in obammys proposal to increase spending. Following? Now subtract the new revenues from tax increases from the deficit that obammy now has. That leaves us short $1.316 trillion. So you aren't paying down anything. You are still adding to the debt in the amount of $1.316 trillion each and every year. Now if we take into account obammys proposal for increased spending the deficit will be even greater than it is now. He proposes more than the tax increases. So again I ask what will libs do with the tax increases? Explain yourself nitwit

The savings will probably end up in one of those leech, teabooging red states that couldn't survive w/o getting back more government money than they pay in. Now, if they'd only employ some of that con exceptionalism, and self-sustain, instead of talking about it.

what savings? From where? Since obammys budget deficit is $1.4 trillion and the proposed tax cuts are supposed to be about $84 billion that leaves is still $1.316 trillion short. This doesn't take into account that obammy proposes raising spending more than the amount of the tax increase. So the debts going up if obammy has his way. Libs are so stupid. You deserve obammy as president.

Funny how you couldn't do math when draft dodger Romney was running for president- you got that, Kneepads? When draft dodger Romney told us he could make up his $8 trillion debt by cutting loopholes, you got that Kneepads? And we asked you then where he was going to get $8 trillion and you never told us during the six months he was running, got that Kneepads?

And the current debt was run up by George Bush.

Got that Kneepads?

Because Obama certainly didn't cause the two Bush recessions and Obama didn't start the two wars, and Obama wasn't handed a buget surplus- like Bush- and give away the far,

Got that Kneepads?

nope. Obammy has run up over $6 trillion and he is adding another $1.4 trillion this year. If he gets his plan passed it will be $1.6 trillion next year. Not to mention the 100,000 people who have lost their job in the last month no longer paying taxes but drawing a check

Yup.

Bush the Buffoon ran the car off the road across the ditch and into a tree.

It cost money for a tow truck and car repairs.

Of course, you insisted Kentucky had a requirement for photo ID after I showed you over fifty times the EXACT law which insisted there was no such requirement and you denied it for months.

So we all know how willing you are to admit you are wrong, eh, Kneepads?

so you make smart ass comments and that is your answer? So when you can't debate and you have lost you just revert to being a smart ass? I am glad I could kick your ass for you. Now don't comment to me again. I like to discuss the subject and to debate. I am not wasting my time with a child who's ass I just kicked.

Not a tax hike, Shug.

It's a tax cut extended to 98 percent of America.

If it fails: Americans will blame the Republicans.
