    Hutterite,

    I've got debt. Can you help me?

    BO said he'd do what it takes to avoid the fiscal cliff

    Does that include resigning and getting biden to resign at the same time so we could have someone fiscally responsible take over? I doubt it.

    Someone correct me if I’m wrong.

    Obama wants to increase taxes by 1.6 trillion dollars, while lowering middle income taxes.

    Divide 1.6 trillion by three hundred million people, and it equals close to six thousand dollars for each American. The ones paying these taxes will be the rich.

    With our capitalist country, the backbone of our economy, are rich citizens. Wouldn’t this policy destroy the rich, and turn our economy into jellyfish, thus allowing for a government take over?

    Why didn't Obama bring this tax increase up during the campaign?

    May our liberal friends get what they voted for.

    May you get what you voted for. Unfortunately, the innocent will also.

    Oh, all the poor losers are still throwing tantrums. Obama is doing just fine.
    And, if this country comes to a complete standstill, it is far better than going backwards with the best the GOP offers.

    Who was that guy who ran against Obama? Did he go to find Bush and try to secede with Texas from the union?

    Yes, a few more than 50 percent of us do, which is why we voted for him!

    Does anyone believe Obama cares for this country?

    I am curious to know which plan would generate more revenue and deficit reduction:

    1. Increase tax rates for the rich, or those making over $250,000.
    2. Reduce tax rates for those making less than $250,000, leave rates the same as they currently are for those making over $250,000, but eliminate tax deductions and loopholes. At the same time, change entitlement spending to ensure these programs remain solvent.

    These were the two plans presented during the president election. Obama presented the first plan. Romney presented the second.

    Which would provide a stronger, long-term solution?

    "Even Mitt Romney admitted the economy was recovering."

    Recovering and fixed are two different things. I hope you know that. If someone who weighs 350 lbs goes on a diet to lose weight and loses 10 lbs after 3 years of dieting, you cannot deny that that person is "recovering", but isn't "fixed".

    "Obama also said that he deserved to be a one-term president if he didn't have the economy fixed in 3 years."

    Even Mitt Romney admitted the economy was recovering.

    That's good. We should all be ready to do what we can to help.
