I am so sick of hearing the 1% argue why the Bush tax cuts shouldn't expire.
And I am so sick of so called news shows having members of the 1% on to argue such things.
What utter bullshit - today it was on the Diane Rehm show. It's everywhere, all the time - of course the MSM doesn't want people on who are part of those getting screwed to take part in the discussions. We are never represented.
Trickle down doesn't work
The 8 Bush years were a disaster.
When rich people get money, they only want more money. Greed seems to be a human problem that we are stuck with....
This is indeed class warfare, and "they" are hugely outnumbered. I hope the Dems realize this and play this to the hilt in all economic or election discussions from now until....forever. Something's gotta give.
But it's NOT GREEDY for the Democrats who haven't earned the money to keep insisting that what someone else has earned it theirs.
Liberals are ALL ABOUT GREED and Progressives are the worst.

Didn't the tax cuts help the middle class the most or are we not discussing that part?
In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.
In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

Just read my sig line.The Obama Administration: Deny. Deflect. Blame.
Government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem.
We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

Just FYI, I got a lot of money back last year and I'm making under 20K. This year, I still make 20K, but I hardly got anything back. I asked why. It was explained that some changes took place compliments of Obama and company.
Tax cuts don't just benefit the rich. I wish the left would quit acting like it does. It doesn't.

Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:
