    He certainly doesn't like the idea that people might keep money for themselves that "should" be going to the government.

    Isn't it funny how the RADICAL LEFTIST SOCIALIST MEDIA isn't even covering this? I'm willing to bet some stupid celebrety news bullshit gets more headlines than any of this.

    Now the incoming class of idealists can do the right thing and not only push for a permanent extension but also the budget cuts to pay for it.
    Of course I am probably hoping for too much to actaully believe they have the stones to do it.
    Budget cuts to pay for what? Why are you using the leftist position that tax cuts need to be paid for?
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    The lie being that Robin Hood took from the rich and gave to the poor. On the contrary - Robin Hood took from the GOVERNMENT and gave the unjust taxes back to the people from whom they had been extorted.
