    * You won't see your taxes go up a single dime.
    * You will save $2,500 a year on insurance premiums.
    * The deficit will be cut in half within three years.
    * You can keep your doctor, and medical plans,

    This country is so easily deceived.

    Given the behavior of the progressive republican, they're about the same. The only group fighting for lower taxes is the Taxed Enough Already group. Have you noticed they have been attacked by the Left and the Establishment Right. Just Saying

    The definition of a Democrat is someone who thinks they have the right to spend other people's money!

    Democrats have never seen a tax they don't love.

    Of course, they won't apply it to the deficit. They'll just spend it all, borrow more, and then complain that there's not enough money. Then they'll call for more taxes.

    They never have enough of everyone else's money. And, Democrats feel they can spend everyone else's money much better than anyone else.

    and the budget BO sent to congress will go......

    directly into the round file where it belongs.

    this is all just grandstanding and demagoguery by the dems.

    The Liberal solution for any budget deficit is "Tax the Rich" Would those Liberals who regularly comment please define the rich and what tax rate they feel is appropriate. Also please name any industrial country that has a higher tax rate than ours when you include the state tax rate. Please don't fall back on our tax rate use to be 90%, which is true; however with deductions the actual rate was much lower. The Regan tax cut lowered the marginal rate; however it eliminated the numerous deduction.

    If your next fall back is let's tax the corporations, that doesn't work because the tax is passed through the consumer through higher prices. So a corporate tax is an indirect tax on the individual. As I asked above, name a country with a growing economy with a higher corporate tax than ours.
