    Even the Repugs aren’t dumb enough to believe that.

    Too true folks. Don’t you love that a tax rate less than 1/2, near 1/3 of the rate Eisenhower was charging them, during the most productive growth period in American history, will now “break ’em”, and destroy all incentives?

    Taxes on the rich, within reason, have NEVER slowed economic growth, according to the CBO report that the GOP attempted – and failed – to suppress. We could go back to the Clinton era tax rates, and the only effect on the economy would be the decrease in demand from the middle class. That’s why Obama proposed the $250,000 cutoff.

    The wealth disparity is the widest in history, and it’s still not enough? Republicans are all about spending without paying for it – and then blaming somebody else further on down the road.

    @pirate227

    Then why not pass a bill extending tax rates for everyone making $400,000 a year or less already? I can pretty much guarantee if that’s what Congress passes, Obama will sign it.

    All for them and none for us.

    Spending is part of the problem. Military spending needs to come down. No sane person can justify our military budget, but…

    REVENUES AT A 50 YEAR LOW AS A PERCENTAGE OF GDP ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM.

    Like credit for moving jobs overseas, “moving” to the Caymans so as not to be an “American” company, et cetera, et cetera.

    The cartoon shows the “job creator” at the end of his Bush tax breaks.

    No it is not. It is the solution.

    “Nope, That’s what the Democrats did from January 2007 to January 2010,”
    .
    Really, now? And the Republican/Bush era had nothing to do with the deficit? The unpaid-for Tax Cuts, two wars on the credit card, Medicare Plan B, removal of Wall Street restraints. TARP was signed into law by a shaken Bush to prevent a depression, which loomed as the result of Republican governance.
    .
    “They did not pass a Budget during this time frame”
    .
    Little things like Senate fillibusters and consistent obstruction. Republican “budgets” included making the Bush tax cuts permanent, dropping unemployment and earned income credits, gutting Medicare, raising SS retirement, etc. Point is, supply-side economics doesn’t work.

    One of the major reasons Greece, Italy, et. al. are in such trouble is that tax cheating and avoidance is a national sport. BTW: If SPENDING IS THE PROBLEM then tell the Republicans to stop insisting on more for defense that the Pentagon DOESN’T WANT!

    Why don’t you move to Greece? You would fit right in.
    .
    Police in Greece have submitted a BBC tape to prosecutors investigating an alleged assault on an MP by members of the far-right Golden Dawn party.

    A BBC crew recorded a party member remarking at a meeting that Golden Dawn members had not beaten radical left MP Dimitris Stratoulis hard enough.

    The party sued Mr Stratoulis when he accused them over the attack.

    Contacted by the BBC, a party spokesperson dismissed the remarks at the meeting as a “joke”.

    .
    Two Golden Dawn members of Parliament armed with guns were turned away at the gates of Greece’s legislative building recently after metal detectors revealed the weapons.

    The unnamed MPs, members of Greece’s far-right Golden Dawn party, were not permitted to enter Parliament with the guns and were asked to leave.
