@Mr. BeanSo the average CEO works 343 times harder and smarter than a
typical employee. I don't know about you, but I have seen people work much
harder and smarter for much less.I also cannot find any evidence to
support your claim regarding your assertion that the health care bill means a
significant tax increase on middle class individuals. Everything I have read
makes it seem awfully beneficial for my family and I.
VST,you mentioned your 401(k) - let's not forget the plan floated by
the dems not so long ago (but not reported by the dem-friendly/promoting media
that would put have raided private retirement plans like IRAs and 401(k)s to pay
for shortages in public pension funds. Still more of rob from the hard worker
to pay for their unsupportable promises that have come to expect from the dems
@Dave D:"We live under an economic and political system which
greatly favors the wealthy."Not so. We live in an economic
system which greatly favors those who work hard and smart."President Obama wants to maintain tax cuts for 98% of
Americans..."Maybe that's what he says he wants. But look
at the facts of what is actually happening. His Obamacare is causing a huge tax
increase for possibly 98% of Americans."Let's not make him
out to be so horrible."Look at the facts. Clearly he is not
horrible. He's appalling, atrocious, dreadful, frightful, ghastly, grisly,
gruesome, to name a few.@Vince:"One question for all
of you republicans I would like answered is, do any of you know how many of the
rich and filthy have been charged as of today for the robbery of the working
middle classes 401K's ect (sic)?"And just what laws did
they break? It is not against the law to be rich and filthy... Nor is it
against the law to petition the government or contribute to a politician's
reelection campaign. If anyone should be charged with something illegal, you
might wish to consider politicians.
"Obama to push extension of middle-class tax cuts"Oh yeah?
Well, his Obamacare caused a huge middle-class tax increase. Largest ever.We need to get this guy out of the White House before he ruins this
country. It may just be too late.
Blue,you are always screaming about the 1% Aren't THEY the
ones benefitting from the higher stock market? SO the 99% are really worse off
under BO. But everyone knows that - everyone NOT wearing BO colored glasses,
One question for all of you republicans I would like answered is, do any of you
know how many of the rich and filthy have been charged as of today for the
robbery of the working middle classes 401K's ect? How many of these
"overnight" wealthy crumbs have been charged? How many have been to
court? The crimes committed by big banks, wall street, oil, pharms, Ins, and
many other mongrel big businesses has been swept under the carpet in the same
old payola game that our elected lawmakers from every state is playing in and
have done for many, many years! What a sad, sad state the voters have let happen
to our great country all because of believing liars. Where's the people
first mentality gone?
If the “rich” pay the increased taxes that Obama wants, it might
bring about $8.5 billion more to the treasury, at least at first. Today, the
federal government spends nearly $8.5 billion every day! Clearly, the problem is
NOT that the rich need to pay more taxes, the problem is that the government is
SPENDING too much money and taxing the “rich” will not solve the
problem! Romney knows that, Obama doesn’t or doesn’t want us to know
it! Romney’s job is to tell America the truth! If he does, he wins!
If you want to know why there is gridlock in Congress, this is a perfect
example. This legislation will never pass. Obama knew it when he proposed it.
Obama is simply playing politics with America workers. Getting reelected is his
Whoa! Middle class people not able to afford health insurance will be taxed,
but Obama wants tax cuts. I need an aspirin.
Blue,Mr. X,When BO took over the unemployment rate was 7.7%
(BLS figures for Jan. 2009). it is 8.2% now.When BO took over the
national debt was $10.6 trillion, (treasurydirect's webpage 1/20/2009) it
is now $15.9 trillionGM and Chrysler DID go bankrupt, and the unions
were given ownership over the secured creditors as is usually the case; and the
US treasury will LOSE money on the deal.Being in banking, I can tell
you definitively BO has done NOTHING for the health of the banks - NOTHING!47% MORE of us are on food stamps, I guess you consider them being
Are we better off than 4 years ago? What was happening 4 years ago? 750k jobs
lost per month. A banking and auto industry in collapse. The DOW around 7,000.
Millions without healthcare. Two wars costing trillions...Better off today? You
We live under an economic and political system which greatly favors the wealthy.
President Obama wants to maintain tax cuts for 98% of Americans while raising
taxes for the top 2% of Americans to rates that are by no means unprecedented.
Let's not make him out to be so horrible.
bluei'd be blue to if i were an obama groupie. $6T more of debt8.2 plus percent unemployment even though obama is rigging the numbersconstruction is deadno one lending moneyless than 25 growth....
gimme a break. your boy is a disaster
Are we better off than we were 4 years ago? Well, let's see:What was the Dow Industrial Average when Obama took office? What is it
now?Has the unemployment rate gone up or down in the last three
years?What are corporate profits now? What were they in 2009?What is the magnitude of the recession we're just now exiting
compared to any recession in the last 70 years?Honestly answer those
questions before you again assert that we'll all be better off with Mitt.
Clue Bay "Are we better off today than we were 4 years ago?" Is a very
good question to ask. Having lived in MA under Gov. Romney. Romney is not the
panacea for what ails America. Regardless of the outcome of the presidential
election, the only people who can turn this country around are Americans not
BO wants to extend trhe middle calss tax cuts. REALLY? They are
not enough to offset the massive tax increase he pushed through with Obamacare.
So, does this mean he wants the repeal of Obamcare? If not, he is lying -
It brings out the true need at election time (Republican Policy). As Reagan
asked after Jimmy Carters first term, "Are we better off today than we were
4 years ago?" We owe it to our kids to vote in Mitt Romney and turn this
this guy has no shame. obama doesn't want tax cuts he wants tax increases.
January can't come soon enough. o has got to go.
