    We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

    Deficite or not - tax cuts do not need to be paid for. Spending needs to be cut to match income levels. FUCKTARD.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    In your class warfare world. And even if it did - the interests of the wealthy are also the interests of the WORKERS as well. Poor people do not hire employees dumbass. When was the last time you saw a bum with a secretary or a gardener or factory workers??

    Why not? Other than saying "I think this"?


    What's wrong with raising taxes to pay for government expenditures?

    lmao yes keeping labor costs as low as possible and fighting against any sort of health care or education plans for working people is in their best interests.


    Poor people do not hire employees dumbass. When was the last time you saw a bum with a secretary or a gardener or factory workers??
    Poor people spend a greater share of their income, because they have to. There are millions more poor people than there are wealthy people. Poor people drive demand. Demand produces jobs.

    Evidence: Look at the corporate profit margins this year, they've been record setting.

    Look at the top 1% over the last decade, they've been doing extraordinarily well through this entire recession.

    According to you, this means that we should have had non-stop job production because employers are keeping more of their money? Oh wait no, because that's not how it works. Employers are not going to create new jobs simply because they make more money, if there isn't an increase in demand. Employers do not want to hire people to stand around, they only hire people when they need to in order to keep their production going.

    Demand drives job creation.

    Because, every time the TAX RATE has been lowered by the government, TAX REVENUES to the government actually increase, not decrease. It worked under Coolidge, Kenedy, Reagan and Bush.

    Because it doesn't work. You get more money coming in via taxes when people have more money to spend, not less.

    What was the budget Surplus/Deficit in 2000?

    What was the budget Surplus/Deficit in 2008?

    Since 1999 there has been zero net job creation.
