This class warfare is sickening.

Romney wanted to give a 20% tax cut to rich people even though the CBO said that the middle class would necessarily foot the bill and you have the nerve to talk about class warfare?

Because of regulatory favoritism the rich have prospered enormously since the Reagan years while the middle and lower classes have floundered. Class warfare? Who gives a damn what you call it. I call it fighting back.

Because he does not belive that cutting spending is good for a weak economy. The best way to reduced the deficit is to grow the economy. There are not may examples where cutting spending in a weak economy does grow it. Especially with China slowing down and Europe on the brink of recession.

Rex, it's all water under the bridge, but if Romney had capped deductibles as he said he would, I'd have ended up paying a bit more despite the rate cut.

Complete and utter bull shite.

His plan was to start by extending the tax cuts put in place by former President George W. Bush (you know, the ones that have brought in historic and near-historic revenues every year since it went into effect in FY2005). His plan would then have cut everyone’s rates by another 20 percent (for those that pay taxes, that is), repeal the alternative minimum tax, and get rid of the estate tax. This would have been "paid" for by limiting the amount people can deduct from their taxable income as well as the increased revenue (you know, the same we have seen ever since the Bush tax cuts).

That's such a steaming pile I don't even know where to start.

Democrats refuse to acknowledge Bush cut taxes by almost 50% for the lowest wage earners in the US. How disingenuous to talk about a republican war on poverty.

Frankly I wish a democrat would just tell us exactly what Bush did they disagreed with. He was by far the most socially liberal president since LBJ before Obama.

re: Obama isn't serious about the deficit. He just wants to punish the wealthy.


quote:

Some do, some don't. Christi Walton is a billionaire for no other reason than she was married to John Walton


She married into money..you think the Waltons didn't work and earn that money? I love how you skipped my entire piece that had to do with inheritance btw.

quote:

You're not fooling anyone

I mean, I understand you are a proponent of the status quo, but going to the point where you are delusional is another thing


Like I said give me your argument. Show an example where someone wasn't given the same freedom of choice to attend school, work hard, get a degree and join the workforce and pursue their dreams. It isn't that hard to do in America with all of the free education, grants, scholarships etc. You can come from a poor family and succeed in this country.

quote:

Throughout your entire post, as longa as it was, you never explained how inequality is healthy for a nation but that you hate poor people.


Yes I did. I explained that there is no inequality when it comes to opportunity. You have some that succeed and some that don't, and a lot of that comes from the choices one makes. You can't try to make everyone exactly equal in terms of income by taking from one group and giving to another. It does not work that way it takes all types for an economy to succeed. People are not born equal in terms of talents, so you can't make them equal. All you can do is give them equal opportunity. By trying to make the equal socially, you ruin the incentive to better oneself, and ruin the motivation to grow as a business for the richer. Leading to the country going broke b/c gov't spending will be higher than income. And nowhere in there did I say that I hate poor people. I hate lazy people who mooch off the government and have no desire to work, but I have full respect for a working person who makes lower income.

All of which favor the rich.

I'm aware there are people who can succeed. BUt you're gonna defend the status quo no matter what.

There is no such "call." You are a lying troll for continuing to spew your stupid mantra.

seriously - go away until you find come credibility.

Sorry... but anybody who believes that is an utter moron.

You think the succession of Kennedy's and Rockefeller's and Bush's as high rollers in both business and politics just happened because those kids were smarter and more desirous of advancement than millions of others?

It's inherent in their economic policy

Yeah, there is

The good news is that the GOP gets weaker every day because your generation is dying out. A bunch of old ignorant fricks with antiquated views

When you own this website, then I'll listen to what you say. Until then, I'll continue to post truth and sheer logic while I skype with progressives on how to further marginalize the GOP in America

LINK??

Or at least your interpretation of whatever facts you are basing this assertion on.

Or at least your rationale for making the assertion.

What you are saying does not have any basis in facts as they are known in this universe.

The rest of your post is just jibberish.

If you ask me kindly and respectfully

More voters are realizing the truth about the GOP and it may never win the White House ever again as a result. Get ready for a left wing USSC.
