    The “Grinch” as we know prefers higher taxes on everybody so the cliff is his friend.

    So how well did those tax CUTS do in promoting the economy and building jobs?
    We must have had an AMAZINGLY high employment rate at the end of the Bush regime, right?
    Because tax cuts FORCE employers to hire more people, not merely to put more profits into their own pockets while they “Rightsize” their workforces. Right?
    RIGHT????

    Republicans claim that they want the Bush tax cuts kept for the middle class. So why refuse to vote on it? So Boehner can obtain concessions in order to protect ‘small’ businesses of Koch, Bain, and Bechtel?
    -
    Oh yes, Boehner and the Republicans are working ‘for the good of the country’. I guess there are people who actually believe that.

    McCoy and the McCoyettes still singing the same song. “It’s all his fault.” Time to get a new record. This one is a 78.

    From the Beatles:
    Let me tell you how it will be
    There’s one for you, nineteen for me
    ‘Cause I’m the taxman, yeah, I’m the taxman

    Should five per cent appear too small
    Be thankful I don’t take it all
    ‘Cause I’m the taxman, yeah I’m the taxman

    If you drive a car, I’ll tax the street,
    If you try to sit, I’ll tax your seat.
    If you get too cold I’ll tax the heat,
    If you take a walk, I’ll tax your feet.

    Don’t ask me what I want it for
    If you don’t want to pay some more
    ‘Cause I’m the taxman, yeah, I’m the taxman

    Now my advice for those who die
    Declare the pennies on your eyes
    ‘Cause I’m the taxman, yeah, I’m the taxman
    And you’re working for no one but me.

    Destry Rides Again? :)
    Loved the poem.
    The cartoon ignores so many important details as to make it superficial, but your poem made reading the comments worthwhile.
    thank you TJ.

    You are correct!. It look like BHO.

    Got to pay for those unfunded wars and mandated programs sometime. It only gets worse the longer you wait. Grim reality, but it is what it is.

    “….Why won’t Obama stop spending worse than a drunken sailor?…”
    .
    The vast amount of the deficit are mandated spending and the discretionary spending of wars, all of which Obama inherited. Obama’s discretionary spending, not counting wars, has been modest in comparison to other presidents.

    Ah … but he said nothing about “unearning” enough and that’s where the rich get most of their money.

    No, bad metaphor – the Grinch stole from the poor to keep for himself – that’s the Bush tax cuts. When his heart grew, he gave it back – that’s Obama.

    Taxes to the Republicans is like kryptonite to Superman. We wouldn’t have a functioning government without them a necessary evil if you will. Everyone needs to pay their fair share otherwise the services we take for granted like Social Security & a strong defense go away.

    Actually, he wants to lower taxes for the vast majority. It’s just that the GOP can’t think beyond the top 2% – if they get a VERY MODEST tax increase, one that would barely be felt by such wealthy folks, they think the sky is falling.

    @coraryan

    Jesse James was shot n the back in 1882. That’s about 130 years. He’s still dead and he was still shot by Robert Ford. Time hasn’t changed that. Bush screwed up the economy (with help, I grant), time doesn’t change that. Instead of trying to pin it on Obama, maybe you should try to help him. For unlike Jesse, it CAN be brought back to life, but like Jesse, it ain’t gonna get better on its own.
