    Just keep raising the taxes while ignoring everything else. It'll work out. No way that people want more than there is to have.

    I see the libs were successful at diverting the headline.


    It is Obama's budget broken down so the simple minded lefties can understand it in their dollars.


    Why S&P Downgraded the US:

    U.S. Tax revenue: $2,170,000,000,000
    Federal budget: $3,820,000,000,000
    New debt: $ 1,650,000,000,000
    National debt: $14,271,000,000,000
    Recent [April] budget cut: $ 38,500,000,000

    Let’s remove 8 zeros and pretend it’s a household budget:

    Annual family income: $21,700
    Money the family spent: $38,200
    New debt on the credit card: $16,500
    Outstanding balance on the credit card: $142,710
    Budget cuts: $385


    Go ahead libs... defend this guy.

    He promised he would cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term... he nearly doubles it and intends to go further

    Record numbers of unemployed people are out there. He has raised spending while he takes in less. Real smart.

    brazil: Taxes must be raised or we'll never be able to create solar abortion machines that make house calls.

    Take this idea and bundle it with a B2B web 3.0 portal iPad app that can use the accelerometer chip integrated with a GPS system to control the machines and I think you have a million dollar idea!

    bluegargoyle: Clearly the solution is to give even more tax breaks to rich people. Then they'll all innovate the hell outta this market, create over 9000 jobs, and we;ll all become fucking bazillionaires. Figure it out, libs.


    You don't get it. Not one bit.

    The rich are already overtaxed here. People like you who spread lies are idiots.

    Don't do it.

    Get a real car, not some numb isolation chamber appliance with no brakes and a puny engine.
