    There are certainly those on the left who know these things are exactly what needs to be done. As the article points out, the democrat president has said he knows these things need to be done. The hold up is that democrats want all the credit, and since the only proposals that will ever achieve a thriving economy have all come from the right, there is no chance they will get the credit, so they prefer to keep the economy suppressed. Even sharing the credit is too much to ask of the left.

    It's all about power. Simple, and tragic.

    Who wouldn't want a simpler tax code, energy independence, stabilizing entitlement programs, and changing the trajectory of our national debt?

    This is what the article is about.

    Sounds great to me! I find it hard to believe that Democrats wouldn't want the same things...unless the overall objective is simply "winning" and being "right". When these are more important than people, then we all lose.

    The first two posts seem to say "We can't consider these ideas because they are being proposed by Republicans". And yet the goals are broadly supported.

    Bipartisan efforts to advance our country should be the goal here.

    The idea behind the article is good, but it takes aim mostly on the President while ignoring the responsibility of the GOP side of the equation.

    Blue's comment just before mine is right on the spot. Thanks, Blue.

    Wait a minute.

    We had an election on these very subjects. The words used in this article are more soothing and vague than during the campaign, but the policies they describe haven't changed a lick. It's still the same GOP greed on display.

    What's being offered in this article is more tax cuts for the wealthy, loosening of environmental protection, ignoring global warming, privatizing social security and voucher-izing Medicare, thinning the social safety net, more money for bombs, balancing the budget on the backs of the middle class... etc.

    Look, we've heard all this. All those bad ideas got a national vote, and they lost. Why can't the GOP grasp that message?
