'They (Democrats) propose the exact opposite of what is needed to stimulate the
economy -- that's why their efforts of the past 3 years have been a miserable
failure that have prolonged the recession...' - Locke | 3:18 p.m. Jan. 25, 2012
Really? And yet, we have been PAYING, to give the
wealthy tax breaks... since 2001. **'Hatch, Republicans
challenge tax cut expiration' - By Becky Bruce - Deseret News - 12/01/10 "WASHINGTON, D.C. Republicans in the U.S. Senate are drawing a
line in the virtual sand, vowing to keep all legislation off the Senate floor
unless Congress extends the Bush-era tax cuts..." So, to claim
that 'the Democrats' have been holding the economy back... after we
have been doing a REPUBLICAN tax break for the wealthy... for the
last x10 YEARS, is foolish. Result? **'Study: Rich get a
lot richer, outpace middle class' - By Andrew Taylor - AP - 10/26/11
"It finds that after-tax income for the top 1 percent of U.S. households
almost tripled, up 275 percent, from 1979 to 2007." Last x3
years? Try the last x10 years...have been a misrable failure.
The push by democrats to raise taxes on business owners and employers ("the
rich") shows how upside-down their understanding of economics really is.
They propose the exact opposite of what is needed to stimulate the economy --
that's why their efforts of the past 3 years have been a miserable failure that
have prolonged the recession, kept unemployment high, stifled business growth,
and increased the federal deficit.
