So the Repilicans are still dragging out. trickle Down Economics. If you raise taxes the wealthy will take it out on the working class and cut raises and cut jobs. But if we continue to give all the benefits to the wealthy well maybe they will hire someone or not cut jobs. Really. This sounds like a protection racket to me.

I thought those making $250,000 or higher were who he had in mind. Even some conservatives (& wealthy) people are agreeing that this needs to be done, even if it's temporarily. Warren Buffet & Ben Stein have weighed in on their support of this in order to chip away at the deficit. Scary thing is, Warren Buffet and some of this rich investor buddies started pulling out their American stocks prior to the election. They must see something even worse on the horizon. Frightening! :(

So explain how raising taxes is going to help rebuild our economy. Oh and please do it step by step on exactly how raising taxes on the wealthy is going to help the little people or for that matter the middle class. Let's not forget that under the new Health Care Bill the politicians don't have to abide by that. Which tells me any of the "buddies" on hte liberal side probably won't have to pay higher taxes like the rest of us.

They are not going to cut anything that needs cutting. The politicians are in no way going to do what is right for this country. They already have another spending bill in mind. HELLO!! Things are only going to get worse and now we can say goodbye to the America we knew and hello to socialism/communism where the majority of Americans are going to be poor and all of the politicians and their cronies are going to be living off of us.
