what about the people that can work and choose to mooch off the government?....you can't lump everyone in together and say "these people suck...they are rich..im poor and i want your money"...or i want them to be taxed more than me. Look at the wealthiest people in America...are they that way because they got lucky? no...they worked hard...Donald Trump...holy ****...a genius American..took what he knew and used it to his advantage to make billions upon billions... You know what you call when the government makes people that have lots of money give tons of it away??? SOCIALISM...you can't hate other people just because they have money. The means to do so are out there. Thats what makes where we live great. Our country was founded on poor people that eventually got sick of being poor. Yea there are people that "fall into" money and get lucky and then there are people who really try hard...on the same hand you have people who try really hard not to be dirt poor and wind up middle class and then you have people that don't give a **** and just live on welfare...thats not american...we need to take responsibility for our own actions...worry about your own fiscal responsibility and stop passing the buck on others. Our economy rests our the shoulders of the American people...not the government. The sooner we realize that the sooner we will be back on track.
Untrue during this day and time. Fact is, it is what it is, it is failed economic policy over the past eight years, need I really get in to the war cost factor as well. Sure the credit crunch was faulty on both parties, to point the finger at one is just flat out stupid. How long ago was it that McCain and Bush said our fundamentals were strong in the economy, like 2 months ago, what a joke. Where was Bush's economic panel during this time, while the lower and middle class were barely able to buy gas and meals. Big govt is what the country needs right now, funny how conservatives still live in the Reagan era, the world has changed in 20 years and the system works a little different. Another thing the belief they have in less govt trips me out, what do you think Bush did in the past 4 years, with"free market" by nationalizing the banking, insurance and automotive industries..oh, wait GW's economic policy was responsible for that. And this is what you want?
The prices are coming down, but they will still make record profits. Do you realize how much of that money we could spend on several programs to boost the economy, infrastructure, etc. I am trying to find a good article that breaks it down and will post it shortly.
I do feel that the 250 k and above tax increase under Obama is a little much, but we are in tremendous Debt people, this money doesn't come out of our butts, we have to pay it back to places much like China. So they have to suffer for a short period of time to stabilize the economy and esp. get the middle class spending again to get the machine working properly. Palin,cmon, thats hilarious. Dont beat a dead horse is what it comes down to, the middle class make up a majority of this country and is getting reemed under failed economic policy. A radical change needs to be in store, seems that Obama has sufficient and very experienced political figures that back him up as well. Smell the coffee, b/c we have completely lost our superpower status and Obama will get us back there.
