Finally, some common sense and some truth about how to improve our very sick economy! Even Bill Clinton, with the help of a Republican congress understood this fact and the result was a surplus in the treasury! Today, one candidate wants to raise taxes (including but not limited to Obamacare) which flies in the face of all economic reason and history. The other candidate knows about real world economics and will solve our economic problems by doing what these economists are telling us and lower taxes, especially capital gains taxes. If you make it more difficult for investors to invest, we will have fewer investors! Fewer investors mean fewer jobs! Fewer jobs mean fewer taxpayers! Few taxpayers mean more deficits and more debt! Gee, isn’t that simple?

So to the first two posters: Whose taxes should be raised? Or, what taxes should be raised?
