This is crazy Obama trying to pit the rich against the poor to sidetrack everyone with class warfare. If we have to pick one or the other we need to get busy saving the rich.

People who achieve a lot and are wealthy because of their hard work. People who are poor don't achieve squat. They sit around all the time waiting for somebody else to take care of them. They have children they can't afford. They're uneducated. They can barely read. And the high point of their day is Entertainment Tonight on TV.

So lets save the rich first, then when the recession is over we will have someone who can hire people. You think otherwise, well how you gonna get a job from the guy on the sidewalk holding a tin cup asking you for your spare change.

"We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy."
Was Reagan a socialist when he made this statement?
So why is Obama now? Obama's not proposing common ownership of the means of production and the economy. That's what a socialist is. Anyone claiming that Obama is a socialist is an ignoramus and doesn't know what socialism is.
Why is it that the GOP has pledged allegiance to Grover Norquist and not to the American people?

As for the claim that he's turning us into a third world crap hole. Socialism isn't found in third world nations. That's usually unfettered capitalism and extreme libertarianism. Want small government or no government, check out Somalia. You'll love it.

I must challenge your idealogical bull crap. These political conflicts are about manipulating the voter to support Republicans or Democrats, it is about controling tax and borrowed money. The reward for winning is to redistribute the wealth generated in America to the party's sponsors (supporters vote, sponsors give big $). Only one thing is certian, those of us in the middle are going to subdize someone else!

Its All BS...Reid will not bring up the Presidents Tax bill,Last time he did the WHOLE SENATE REJECTED it...so Reid shelved it....Democrats will not vote for it
If they wanted that Tax Bill Passed?? They have the Majority,all needed is 50 votes,not the 60...Its All HUSSEIN Election Crap...
All LOONY DEMOCRATS have to do is put it to a vote....but they won't ..for it will fail...
Lying weasel OBAMA ,now running around blaming all..preaching class warfare,ANY THING to get his BONEY ASS reelected..

Appearing on the Alex Jones Show on Monday, Emmy Award-winning actor Ed Asner said Navy Seals have told him military action against Iran is forthcoming and will be preceded by a false flag attack.

Asner told Alex and his nationally syndicated radio show audience that the Seals are attempting to alert the American people about the prospect of a false flag operation and “more foreign escapades” before the establishment media “starts brainwashing us.”

Somalia is a capitalist country. As is Haiti. Anarchy isn't an economic policy. Most countries that aren't socialist or communist are in fact capitalist. Just because they're not successful doesn't mean they aren't capitalists.
