    The Democrats and Republicans DO agree that taxes should be raised and spending cut. The problem is they don’t agree on which spending to cut and whose taxes should be raised.

    Always plenty of money for republican fantasies. No money anywhere…Oops! Gotta bail a Bush out the Savings and Loan scandal and money rains down from heaven in barrels…. kinda funny, really……..

    Let’s compare the amount lost on Solydra with the amount lost to bail out banks. Or the wars.

    You may be right. but as our politicians, who as a class are among the least educated of our society, see it it’s all general revenue and fair game.

    Most households pool income and spend it on needs. When the highest earning member starts keeping a separate account to pay for an extravagent lifestyle, divorce is just around the corner.

    So, you think all investments have to work out, otherwise, we should just never invest in new technologies and start-ups?

    Who’s this “we”, Kemo Sabe? You can pour your own money into the bank accounts of whichever of Obama’s campaign contributors you want, but keep your grubby paws out of my pockets.

    As businesses selling favors and “protection”, they also agree that the function of government is to steal from the many and give to the favored few…but not entirely who are the favored.

    The Federal Government is not like a household. When they need more money and there is low chance of inflation, like now, they can just issue more. They could easily raise another 4 trillion on the bond market, spend it which puts it in our hands and the economy would be better.

    Raising taxes to pay off the national debt is like digging through the cushions on the sofa for loose change to pay off the mortgage. Obama’s proposed tax increase on “the rich” would pay for a few days of the government’s expenses. Even if we taxed away all corporate income and all household income over about $67000, it would only cover about half of what the federal government is adding to unfunded liabilities (Medicare, Social Security, federal employee pensions, and the like) every year.

    No matter what the politicians do, the result for everyone will be reduced standard of living for generations to come. The long-range solution has to be a government that does only what the Declaration says: to secure our unalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That goal is still true and is inconsistent with a welfare state where nobody’s money is safe.

    Alot of pro-tax increase talk. Scary stuff considering how much the poor and middle class have suffered this recession.

    It would be great if all people would get off thier butts and vote. and When you buy something you look for things made in the USA that would bring back job and if we made them good we could export them and get some of our money back. But this cartoon is what we are doing instead of getting rid of our 200 dollar a month cell phone we go to starbuck for a cup of coffee to take to walmart to buy imports
