    Yup, the small gov’t crowd doesn’t mind taxing and spending, just not on stuff THEY don’t want (see: the eight years of profligate, drunken sailor spending of the Bush years with hardly a peep.)

    It is a monument to sheepherding that the Repubs can get their base to fiercely protect the income of the top 2% of the wealthiest!

    A fine theory except for two weensey little details: the money isn’t getting spread around, AND for some reason, “deficit hawks” don’t seem to like the Government SPENDING the money raised by taxes… so, what happens to the money when the government spends it?

    Eight years of Ex-Pres Bush tax cuts not only did not stimulate the economy. After the end of eight years the economy was on the verge of the second great depression. The entire idea that Tax cuts alone will stimulate the economy failed for Pres Reagan, Bush Sr and Bush Jr. Still it is the only plan being put forward by Conservative Republicans

    The economy during the 2000s ran on the ‘equity’ extracted from overvalued real estate. It was a bubble economy doomed to burst.

    Money is like manure..neither one is any good unless you spread it around. Give a poor guy a buck and he will spend it, give a rich guy 100 bucks and he will start a factory business overseas. That is why Ragan Economics failed.

    Hey Ruben, I’m removing you from my list of comics due to complete lack of any kind of balance. You are obviously an artist (good) who hasn’t a non-partisan bone in your body. (bad)

    Tip to link to an article online:

    Put its title (such as ‘Obama cited 'stimulus,' but the money is actually from Voinovich, Brown and Kilroy’) in square brackets, then put its URI (such a‌s http‌:// in parentheses, to get a link to it (such as Obama cited 'stimulus,' but the money is actually from Voinovich, Brown and Kilroy).

    Also proofread and edit your comment if necessary.

    By the way, I’m not sure that this is the best article for small-goverment advocates to link to. It says that the money that saved an Ohio government building didn’t come from the stimulus package, but it still came from the federal government. It came from pork-barrel earmarks!

    Job growth was the poorest during the Bush years. Thanks to giving tax money to rich people to put in their banks and bet with on Wall Street.

    The Bushes, Reagan and other minimal-government advocates spent more money and added more to the national debt than any democrat president.

    Don’t take my word for it:

    Tell me, how is taxing a man at 35% giving the rich money?Every man equal, every man one vote, every man 15% of income. That is equality.

    You want your lefty union job for 40 hours a week and 0 years schooling.That Doctor gave up his 20s to school and intern, couldn’t get married till his 30s (Divorce rate among Dr.s?) Is paying back $200k student loans, working 100 hour weeks, and pays more a year in insurance than you will pay in your life. You say it’s fair to tax him 3 times what your lazy bleeep gets taxed. Is it guilt or envy that you don’t make what he does? He paid his dues, you went and took an easy vocation, got married and probably had more kids than you could afford ($200k/kid w/o college) Who’s fault?

    The man who invests in himself and his country gets taxed higher than the man who does nothing. You wanted to spend more time with family than working? What do you expect. You got your family. Don’t tax the man you gave that up to save your family’s health.You want safe 1% CDs? Great! Don’try to overtax the man who made money investing in his county.

    Or move to a commie country. What? There are two left, right?

    Donaldo: I did not click on your link and could care less what it says. I can’t get past the unbelievable idea that you think B.O. (our favorite Dem “president”) won’t hold the world record — by a long shot — for increasing the national debt. Do you HONESTLY think he will not hold that record by the time he’s booted out in 2012? Newsflash: HE’S ALREADY THERE my little chum! I thought Jhimma was going to be the all-time worst “president”. Enter B.O.!!!! Doofus!

    C.A. Bobby: Your comment deserves no reply. It’s beyond stupid. It’s reached into the 7th Circle of Hell and re-defines the illness known as liberalism. I suggest you seek professional help. Now.

    Go here for five minutes a day for a month for some free help as I know you probably can’t pay for help since you do not have a job:

    You can thank me later……..
