    The Obamanation and his dastardly lib cronies are out to make the most massive welfare state they possibly can. Combine that with the precipitous decline of morals in this country and no nation can withstand it. America will never again be what it once was.

    Yes, morals have declined. State approved terrorism and torture for instance. There are other things under the category of “morals” that we might agree on. But if the U.S. does not recover its economic standing, you can thank eight years of Bush mismanagement, four years of Republican obstruction with the goal of making Obama a one term President, and a trivializing of American workers that started with the President elected in 1980. A “welfare state” only exists in the parallel universe you and Ms Benson seem to inhabit.

    The tax rates in the 1990s were commensurate with the level of prosperity that existed. Would returning to those levels in a time of recession really help? The number of empty storefronts I see in my area seem to indicate that small business is struggling now without hitting them with the burden of increased taxes.

    Tax capital gains as income?

    Or just quit pretending it isn’t income.

    When Republicans’ cable TV bills go up 2% do they try to shut the cable company down?

    I pay 7% in taxes for the cable company to supply me with internet and cable. It’s revolting. We should jump the O ship and throw his tea overboard.

    The majority has spoken. By all means, write a declaration of independence and secede from the union.

    What I would like to know is when Obama is going to quit campaigning and govern? He won the election, now sit down face to face with the republicans and hash this out. Everybody knows the media releases of what they will or won’t go for, now sit down and work it out! Obama’s legacy is going to end up that he campaigned from 2006 until 2016. All these stupid meetings with CEO’s and going on the road are photo ops. The CEO’s like Jeff Immelt and the Pepsi lady are staunch democratic supporters. Get face to face with the republicans and quit wasting time! I would like to hear a detailed proposal from both sides of this argument to know what the real proposals are. All we hear is rhetoric about I won’t do this or that, but not what they propose as a PACKAGE. They wonder why business and “regular people” are so reticent to spend and plan, that’s why. Nobody knows anything except sound bytes and partisan dialog that is non specific.

    Sit down and talk, discuss, compare, argue, compromise, resolve and implement. That was always the general process we followed in business to get something done.

    If you want to secede from the Union because of state sales tax… well, then, what can I say but “please go with all haste”?

    what part of the first two year did the repub have control. It was not the repubs that sent all the cars to china so they can send us cheap stuff and make it impossible to get parts for you car and raised the price of used cars.

    there is nothing to worry about the lawmakers are rich and will not raise taxes. Because if they worrried about the rich they would of done it 4 years ago when they were all demos. And if they cared about the budget they would have taken a pay and benefit cut.

    I’m tired of the stupid argument. Let all the nasty things happen. Yes, go back to the tax level of the 90’s, yes cut that trillion dollars out of spending that is mandated.

    Taking the entire wealth of the top 1% will fund the government for 4.5 days..

    Raising taxes on those making over 250K will net about 800 billion over 10 years. The interest paid on the current debt is 325 billion each year.

    If you do not address the spending raising taxes will not help.

    I guess you’re going to cut and paste that on every strip today.

    Like I said, write the Republicans and tell them to stop listening to Grover Norquist and start listening to you. Obama and the Democrats are willing to make cuts, but the Republicans are unwilling to increase a tax rate. Revenues are at a post WWII low as a percentage of GDP.
