*Now Thats Rich - By PAUL KRUGMAN - NY Times - 08/22/10

'Whats at stake here? According to the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center, making all of the Bush tax cuts permanent, as opposed to following the Obama proposal, would cost the federal government $680 billion in revenue over the next 10 years.'

"According to the Pew Economic Policy Group, an extension of all of the Bush tax cuts will cost $3.1 trillion over ten years, once the costs of servicing the debt are factored in."

Liberals always call the tax cuts "Bush era tax cuts" they never talk about the Clinton and Carter era tax hikes. That is what caused the need for the Bush era tax cuts.

Hi Pagan,

Aren't you referring to the Bush/Obama tax cuts?

With China, Mexico, Turkey, Spain and Portugal all building fences, it's obvious they are a great deterrent. (when built correctly) Virtual fences are not, you need a physical barrier. With over $113 billion paid each year for illegal immigration, we can save a lot of money by just finishing the fence.

Arizona leads, Utah is more concerned about supplying cheap labor to the dishonest business community. It's rather scary knowing we have people in this state that sell out their neighbors and think so poorly of their fellow man.

Did Obama CREATE the Bush era tax cuts?

Oh! Right, because Obama 'coninues' Republican policy he's 'responsible' for them.

Not like the Patriot Act:

*'This Day in History: PATRIOT Act signed into law' - Melissa Green - Liberty Central - 10/26/10
'On October 26, 2001 President George W. Bush signed the Patriot Act into law.'

Or the TSA:

'...passed by the 107th U.S. Congress, and signed into law by President George W. Bush on November 19, 2001.'
- Cursory wikipedia search

Or the Wall Street Bailouts:

*'Bailout is law' - By Jeanne Sahadi - CNN Money - 10/04/08
'NEW YORK -- After two weeks of contentious and often emotional debate, the federal government's far-reaching and historic plan to bail out the nation's financial system was signed into law by President Bush on Friday afternoon.'

Or Iraq?

*"The Iraqi regime . . . possesses and produces chemical and biological weapons. It is seeking nuclear weapons.' - George W. Bush - Ohio Speech 10/7/2002

How's Obama doing on that?
