    AKA Reaganomics.

    So tell me, what’s the difference between Bushanomics and Obamanomics? And Reaganomics for that matter?

    (You know what’s funny? my browser’s automatic spell check doesn’t flag ‘Reaganomics’, but the others it does.)

    That’s easy.

    Reaganomics: Supply side of curve. Lower taxex and increase both the supply of money to the government and to the people.

    Bushanomics: Maintain supply side tax rates, but overspend beyond the funds available.

    Obamanomics: Increase tax rates to lower the income to the government and the people. Increase the resulting deficit by borrowing.

    Its really not which party is in control at the time as much as its the blind arrogance of the government in general and the idea they are entitled to limitless spending without any ramifications. Our biggest entitlement group is the US government. From the lowliest government worker up through the congress its all the same attitude. I have had a fair amount of dealings with the government as a contractor and even on a low level I see waste and spending that boggles the mind.

    Reminds me about that movie The Day After Tomorrow. Giant storms covering the Northern Hemisphere and it was the fault of evil Republicans who did not go along with the Kayto Accords. But most pollution today comes from China and India not the U.S. We have set an example and the world did not follow so there is little we can do now.

    AKA Reaganomics……end quote.
    -
    I grade you F for Failure, Krazy.
    Reaganomics and Bush’s economics are Capitalist, Free Market philosophy, Freedom for individuals and businesses to operate free from government interference or Control.
    -
    Obanomics is Marxist, government controlled, with very little freedom for the individual or business…..with a goal of making citizens DEPENDENT on government “welfare”….and federal control of every part of life…birth, food, shelter, healthcare, education, jobs; in other words, taxpayers and “useless eaters” are SLAVES OF THE CENTRAL BUREAUCRACY. Obama made it clear to Joe the Plumber in the 2008 campaign that he planned to REDISTRIBUTE THE WEALTH of those who earned it, and that is the one promise he kept.

    It started out as Tropical Storm George the Nincompoop. Once those interest charges on the debt kicked in there is no way out except to raise taxes on those WHO CAN AFFORD TO PAY! The ones who got the most from tax cuts IN THE FIRST PLACE! The wealthy, like Mittens and his rich friends.

    The main difference between 0bamanomics and Reaganomics is that one empowers the Government while the other gives greater deference to the individual.
    .
    The bigger the Government, the smaller the individual.

    Someday the “right” MAY figure out what “Marxism” is, as it’s never actually been IMPLEMENTED, even in the USSR, CHINA, or Viet Nam, rather, bastardized dictatorships passing as “Marxist”, it’s like “Democracy” with the BIG D, which only existed briefly in a small community in Greece.


    Our social AND economic “problems” DO stem from “Reaganomics” and the authoritarian kleptocracy the rich got out of Reagan, and subsequent Republicans’ elections.


    Just CHECK THE DEBT GROWTH under their policies, while the rich got richer, just like Mitt, Bain, and the other “investment banking” that shipped jobs overseas, lowered taxes, and watched, as our infrastructure fell apart, while their mansions were built.


    The “rich” don’t need to go back to the 91% on taxes, but 39%, their “fair share” wouldn’t kill them, as their current tax rates of 8% (no actual is NOT 35%, and most don’t even pay Mitt’s 13.9% (on declared income).


    Slow growth in jobs, and business, DOES match the current economy. A slow increase in taxes, on those individual and corporations who DO make the money, isn’t out of line, except to the GOP and their followers, who they keep on a very tight leash.

    So what are you saying, that true Communism is the way? Sorry dude but what is your point. Your right about one thing communism was never fully implemented in the Soviet Union because of thriving Black Market. There were even a few mom and pop shops in Siberia to my understanding.

    Surely, you must have been dealing with Medicare or Social Security. Republican Science teaches us that nowhere in the Defense Dept or the Pentagon is there the slightest shred of waste, fraud and abuse.

    Chavez has and is implementing Marxism in Venezuela…nationalizing businesses….taking them from private owners and making them STATE-owned…cracking down on what once was a Free Press…
    .
    and Obama used the excuse of a recession to “nationalize the auto industry”, starting with GM, breaking laws to steal assets from bondholders, giving the UAW Union control of the company, and closing Republican-owned dealerships and putting tens of thousands of Americans out of a job. GM’s sales of the forced hybrid VOLT are mostly to Obama’s government expansion jobholders, paid by taxrevenues.
    -
    He recently told Democrats at a rally at Pueblo, Colorado, that he wanted to repeat the auto takeover with ALL the MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY. That is Marxism in action.
