    “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.

    What a lousy little dump on top of that hill. No 1%er would live in that. How about Tony take a lesson from yesterdays Oliphant.

    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?

    Time to take the mountain down. It rains on the just and the unjust alike, but for now, let’s rain a little harder on the unjust.

    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.

    @Ms. Ima

    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

    YAAAAAAWN.
    Ya know, I do not understand the liberals and there need for class warfare and the need to demonize the success of others in order to make them feel better.
    And just to make you libs feel better, if you make only 34,000 in the USA, guess what? You sir are in the top 1% of the world.
    So Tony, is that how the rest of the world looks at us?
