Nope - should not expire. I believe in keeping as much of my own pay as possible, and for the government to be frugal with my tax money and not spend it like a drunken sailor.

Myth #1: Tax Revenues remain low.                                                                                                                      FACT: Tax Revenues are above historical average.

Myth #2: Bush Tax Cuts substantially reduced 2006 Revenues & expanded the Budget Deficit.             FACT: Nearly all of the 2006 Budget Deficit resulted from additional spending above the baseline.

Myth #3: Supply side economics assumes all tax cuts pay for themselves immediately.                         FACT: It assumes replenishment of some, but not all, lost revenues. Raising Tax Rates discourages the taxed behavior & shrinks the Tax Base. Lowering taxes encourage taxed behavior, offsetting some Revenue losses.

Myth #4: Capital Gains taxes don't pay for themselves.                                                                                   FACT: Capital Gains Revenues doubled following the 2003 Tax Cuts. Investors are the most Tax Policy sensitive. Lower taxes lead to more investment, which more than offset the low Tax Rate. This has been proven in 2003 as well as other times. These investments are what turns the U.S. as they usually concern education, technology and a host of other important programs.

Myth #5: Bush Tax Cuts are to blame for the projected long term Budget Deficits.                                     FACT: Projections show that entitlement costs dwarf the projected large Revenue increases.  

Myth #6: Raising Tax Rates are the best way to raise Revenues.                                                                  FACT: Tax Revenues correlate with economic growth. Not Tax Rates.    

Myth #7: Reversing upper income Tax Cuts would raise substantial Revenue.                                          FACT: The low income Tax Cuts reduced Revenues.

Myth #8: Tax Cuts helped the economy by putting $$ into more people's pockets.                                     FACT: Pro-growth Tax Cuts support incentives for productive behavior.

Myth #9: Bush Tax Cuts have not helped the economy.                                            


Myth #9: Bush Tax Cuts have not helped the economy.                                                                                    FACT: The economy responded favorably to the 2003 Tax Cuts.

Myth #10: Bush Tax Cuts tilted toward the rich.                                                                                                   FACT: The rich now shoulder most of the Income Tax burden.


rolling on floor yOU MUST BE YOUNG COPY AND PASTER.  Were you actually a working adult, who lived the changes of the last 20 years? That is so full of misinformation it is UNREAL.

I am not young by any means and have been a working adult for many, many years. Now that we have that straight, here are 3 links that must be spreading this "misinformation" as well.

However, they're probably all stupid as well. 

Maybe he can fix it.


Rigth back atcha..talks of taxes being historical lows. Which makes more sense AFTER the tax cuts we have been riding for so long? http://thinkprogress.org/economy/2012/07/09/512741/charts-economy-bush-tax-cuts/

REMINDER of the REALITY of how thi sall started... http://www.tax.com/taxcom/taxblog.nsf/Permalink/CHAS-89LPZ9 But copying and pasting from whatever slanted side you want, doesn't change the FACT that everyone I know is prospering right now. or that last Month had record car sales since 4 years ago.

OK, I've tried to understand your first comment. Again, you make no sense in relation to what I posted. When you get undialated perhaps you'll explain. Till then,

aw did my little dyslexic typo throw you off? Right back at you..with the copy and paste. Typical left brain with no imagination. It is also know as a colloquilism. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colloquialism Sorry my attempt at funny retort, was over your head.

I will never stop being open minded, thanks! You should try it some time.

 Now go focus on some more typos, so the big picture can remain over your head! :)

I don't know what the hell your problem is, nor do I want to. I've never spoken with you before, nor do I want to. You're attitude sucks and you sound like a witch. So go on now before someone throws water on you.

No you haven't spoken to me before. Because I have more of a life than just sitting on cafemom. I have no desire to know you personally. I am just here to learn about others views and share my opinion. Ya know, what the site is for. Your best option to not have to deal with me, would be..DON'T RESPOND OR CONTINUE TO ENGAGE ME. But left brains aren't known for that practical thinking now, are they?
