    “The top 1% got 93% of the income growth”. That’s because they are job creators! True, they are creating the jobs in China and Bangladesh, but still…

    Republicans have proposed cuts to Medicare? What proposal is this?
    As far as I can tell, Republicans are demanding that Obama propose all the spending cuts. They have not proposed any that I’m aware of.

    They said they are sticking to the Ryan budget proposal which does cut Medicare.

    They are going to refuse any budget that doesn’t cut Medicare, but they’ll never propose one because they want to blame the Democrats. Obama’s proposal was a good, sound piece of governing that would be proven to help the economy and make a down payment on future deficit reduction. Naturally, Boehner said it was “not serious.” Because it doesn’t damage America enough?

    Why should the 1% have a lower tax RATE than everyone else?
    Why are people who are NOT in the 1% so protective of them having still lower tax rates?
    Most of the 1% have inhereted their wealth.
    Why aren’t more people who are not in the top 1% not more outraged by the fact that some politicians want to lower the tax rate on the extremely Wealthy while adding more tax burden to themselves?

    Frank Luntz and his jibber-jabber strikes again…..
    “As PBS put it, Luntz’s expertise is “testing language and finding words that will help his clients sell their products, or turn public opinion on an issue or a candidate.” In other words, propaganda.

    Here are some actual examples of Luntz’s fine work:

    Don’t say “oil drilling.” Say “energy exploration.”

    Don’t say “inheritance tax.” Say “death tax.”

    Don’t say “global warming.” Say “climate change.”

    Don’t say “healthcare reform.” Say “government takeover.”

    And don’t say “greedy, soulless multinational corporations who don’t give a damn about you.” Say “job creators.”

    I’ve seen this exact scene. In Baja CA. A palace on a rocky hill, surrounded by peasant shacks. This is the Republican dream.

    Funny thing is that there are roughly 40 million on food stamps and 6 million on Assisted Housing. Lets presume its a safe guess to say many of the later are also on the former

    Those on food stamps
    13% of Americans

    Those on assisted housing

    2% of Americans

    Now perhaps in your mind the USA is a country of 80 million people but unfortunately that demographic barely covers the West Coast.

    And yes it is true that the top 1% pay 37% of the nations taxes.

    They also own 47% of the nations wealth

    Never mind that sniffing crack off of the chest imported hookers paid by the minute for the next 10 years and that wealth would barely diminish the amount of money. It still is paying a lower rate on wealth than the rest of the nation

    Now that we have the 47% remark out of the way nearly 4% of the GDP is spent on the Military, I invite you to look at newspapers throughout South America, Africa, Middle and Far East. The common sentiment is either

    . The Americans are malicious and have invaded our country

    . The Americans want what is best for our country but are misguided in their attempts

    The cost of military veterans accounts for about 17% of the Cost of military

    The USA could cut its military budget to 2% of GDP and would still be second to none in spending. Never mind that 3% of GDP would cover over half of the Total deficit.

    A mere return to Pre-Bush rates would be far from a Communazi state as Rush would put it. and would generate 2% of GDP to help close the cap

    Remove tax credits given for money spent offshoring would raise .3% of GDP as revenue. Most countries (including China, India, Thailand) don’t do it as it is a really stupid move that helps to finance decline of industry

    End the war on drugs and you can pocket 0.1% of GDP

    A uniform cut to all remaining Government sevices of half of a % would effectively Balance the budget

    I love this statistic for its absolute BS. Western Europe (population 600 million) has an average wage of 32,000. Now in a world of 7 billion this immediately eliminates that remark

    ( that is unless you believe there is a large gap between 32-34k per year in which case sure lets say that it is true)

    Why do you republicans feel the need to demonize the bottom 98% of the population as lousy good for nothing moochers.

    Why is it that returning to tax rates from the 90’s, not exactly a decade of rampant communism would be an affront too all that is holy.

    For many practicalities Inflation and Debt is important to look at, Tell me Harley, if every american’s income was dropped to a proclaimed 50% of the worlds population ( lets say 1800$, around what would be required for 32k to be the top 1%, Even though the actual number is around 4k)

    Most likely mass bankrupsy, and companies selling at a loss. to readjust to lower wages and lower consumption selling at a loss would hit the United States like a fist of God.

    Now every company in the USA declares bankrupsy as the product sale cost is not high enough to deal with Debt.

    Wages are the blood of capitalism that circulates in the economy, While it is important one can prosper it is also important that those within the consumer class of society continue to see wages rise in order to fuel more consumption.

    While it is true that most wealthy have earned it over lifetime inflation accounts widely for the amount earned.

    If back in 1960 I inherited 10 million dollars and threw it into common fund such as the DOW which has grown at a rate of 7% average, without looking back you would as of today have

    10,000,000 X (1.00 + .07)^52 = 337253479

    Or in other words a little over 330 million without so much as lifting a finger.

    O is already cutting over 600 Billion from Medicare to fund Obamacare. Good luck trying to find a nearby doctor willing to take new Medicare patients.
