The Bush tax-cuts have done nothing other than adding to the burden the poor and the middle class already had on their backs. It has been proven that it has created very few jobs and only widened the gap between the have`s and the have not`s. The middle class is vanishing and that's the way the rich and powerful have always wanted it. Keep the masses hungry and standing in line and you can control them. Why shouldn't folks who have had the good fortune to have prospered the most in this country pay their share and a little more. If you think that's unfair...Go somewhere else. Everyone's free to go. If you move your business to another country that's fine too. But you should play HELL trying to get your product back on U.S. soil. Import Tax!!!

Typical class warfare from a left wing lemming. News flash, the money that people, including job creators, got back due to the Bush tax cuts was not the Government's money to begin with.

Here is a little Tax education for you.
- The top 5% of earners pay 58.72% of the nations taxes, the top 50% of earners pay 97.30% of the taxes.(According to National Taxpayers Union 2008 numbers) The 50% that pays almost NO taxes are the ones who receive the most entitlements. The 50% that pays almost NOTHING needs to pay something? Even the Presidents Debt Commission said that taxing the "rich" on 100% of their earning would not be enough to deal with the debt. The Government spends too much.

The Bush tax cuts "saved or created" way more jobs than the "stimulus" left-wing social-engineering bill Obama signed. Remember when Obama promised that the stimulus would keep unemployment below 8%. OH WELL ON THAT ONE, RIGHT? Lets look at other ways Obama has waged was on the middle class.
- Obamacare has caused already rising insurance costs to skyrocket, forcing many employers to consider dropping coverage.
- Companies have no idea of how high energy priced will rise due to Obama waging war on energy through the EPA
- the culture of hyper-regulation has many business owners scared.

News flash to you. The government isnt and shouldnt be this country's primary job creator. That is up to businesses and owners who are willing to take a risk.

If you dont like things, LEAVE. Go get you a cozy little home in a socialist country like Cuba or North Korea. Then you could have your free healthcare, food, and housing and wouldn't have anything to bitch about.

Go to Boston.com today to the business section. There is an interesting piece about General Electric, AKA Government Electric, and the company's decision to move its X-Ray Business to China. The X-ray headquarters will move from Wisconsin and invest about 2 Billion$ in China to start operations there. Since the CEO of GE, Jeff Immelt is the head of Obama's "Council on Jobs and Competitiveness" what does this say of Obama's economic policies?

Unfortunately. after the mess made by eight years of the Bush team of the progress of the Clinton years, it just wasn't enough, either way.

A shame that Al Gore, the President we actually elected in 2000, never had a chance, or we'd most likey be living in a much differnt USA right now.

The national debt was projected to rise sharply over the next 25 - 30 years way back when Clinton was in office. Much of that debt is due to unsustainable social programs that were promised by politicians who knew they would be out of office when the bill came due.

Thank goodness Al Gore never was President. That "Global Warming" Profiteer / Alarmist would have pushed for a "green economy" more than Obama. All you have to do is look to Spain and their green economy to see where Al Gore would have led us. Spain has around 20% unemployment and is currently one of 5 EU countries that are financially imploding due to terrible economic choices and too many entitlements.

I contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into
prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and
trying to lift himself up by the handle.
~~ Winston Churchill

The Feds are spending over 30% more than they are bringing in. If they had a balanced budget the debt ceiling would not be a issue. These are supposed to be the smartest and they can not balance a checkbook!!! They need to CUT SPENDING!! The current admin wants to increase it... Is there anybody that runs their household that way?
