    Oh, i get it... the same old bs continues to be sold as some kind of defense for the people who make the decision to send their manufacturing jobs overseas to increase their bottom line, at the cost of their american compadres. Every job that goes off-shore costs an American his job.

    Nobody as far as i know is pushing for the elimination of the bush tax-cuts for those making $250,000 more with the idea that doing so might somehow balance the budget. That's not the point, and the right knows it. The tax-cuts were designed to end in 2010, which of course, thanks to the hostage-holding actions of the congressional GOP members, didn't happen. That's the point. Legislation is tilted to the wealthy in this country, thanks to the wonderful work their lobbyists do. That's the point. This increases the gap, strengthening the wealthy, and weakening the rest of the population. This is extremely counter-productive and extremely damaging to the country. That's the point. The working middle and lower classes lose jobs, experience loss of assets, become depressed and struggle to stay afloat, while we wait for trckle-down to take affect. These people have been waiting for almost 8 years...

    I know that almost every one on the right HATE Bill Maher, but he makes the point that i agree with (the bogus trickle-down theory), go to 3:21.



    You might get it, but so many think that this has nothing to do with the increasing wealth gap. The working middle class has no say in whether their job stays or travels to another part of the world. But they are the ones that pay the price. For awhile these newly unemployed folks hunt for new job(s). But after a time, some give up and take the assistance offered to them by the government because their back is up against the wall. Now they are a part of the 47%.

    ...Just sayin'

    No offense, but wise up. He (and the dems in Congress) gives a tax break here and increases a tax, fee, or regulation somewhere else. That's how they play the game. Then they can say they reduced taxes. They even call future spending on wars which have ended, a tax cut. We're not ignorant, ya know.

    "And in their defense, there are two reasons why coming up with an alternative has proven to be difficult," Obama said. "First, it's because the Affordable Care Act pretty much was their plan before I adopted it!"

    You do know that GE specifically as well as a number of other obama donors have moved overseas, taking jobs with them? You DO know this don't you? Obama doesn't have to say it, he knows it is a lie, taxing the socalled rich (over 250,000 per year) will not take care of any debt, but that is what he has insinuated to his followers. THEY think that is what is going to happen. it isn't. You along with other obama supporters are going to be paying more in taxes maybe as early as January 2013. I don't want to hear a word outta ya. You're already paying more at the grocery store, or yo mama is, and your parents are paying $2000 more per year for gas.
