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

    Incredibly stupid cartoon.

    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 republicans sent a budget to the senate in August. If the senate doesn’t like it, they can ammend it and send it back. That is the way it is supposed to work.

    The democrats control the senate. If there is no budget, no budget deal, it is their fault, not the republicans in the house.

    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.

    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…

    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.

    What I never understood is how CEO’s can make these kind of decisions on their own. Are they not accountable to their shareholders? If a CEO says that he will not hire new people or even fire employees if his personal taxes are raised he is doing a disservice to the company, he is basically saying “the company will no longer grow, it may even shrink, and it is my doing”.


    If I were an investor in that company and my dividend or share-value would go down because of that I would demand the guy to be fired AND to pay my losses! Happened recently to the former boss of Deutsche Bank because he said bad things about some company on TV. Now he (personally!) has to pay $100M or so to the former stockholders. But, well, that’s Germany and we are all “Socialists”, right?

    @Mr. King

    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.
