This is a great example of why we would be better served having a 10% corporate tax rate for all companies with no deductions available. That would be good for all sides, and you would probably see a lot of companies move back here to take advantage.

Here is the fundamental dishonesty of partisan politics on display. Why is it up to ONE party to solve the deficit problem? Why is is it the Republican party's responsiblity to be the meanie-heads and cut off the goodies?
The Democrat leadership doesn't even admit we have a spending problem. See Reid's recent comments. See Obama's proposed budgets.
Yet somehow the deficit is a problem left to the Republicans to solve alone? It's a moronic position.

Dude. You're better than this. The House has passed multiple budgets. How many have been brought up for votes in the Senate?

Except they DO! The House has continually done it's fiscal duties and passed a budget. The president has failed to produce a budget proposal that was anything other than an unserious effort (receiving no votes from either party it was so laughable). The Senate has repeatedly failed to bring budgets to the floor. How is that the HofR's fault?

B...B..But I thought it was House that runs the fiscal show?

I have literally no idea what you're talking about. If you want to claim that Republicans controlled everything going back to the Clinton years it undermines your argrument. That would mean that Republicans balanced the budget, had a surplus for a good portion of those years. And if you look at 2003-2007 we had continually declining deficits that projected out would have ended in a balanced budget in 2008. But further you can take that entire 16 year period's deficits and they are smaller than Obama's three year run. So sure... let's blame Republicans for the deficits... makes sense.
