    Sounds nice, but it will depress economic activity in a time
    when we need to be expanding the economy.

    Letting the Bush Tax cuts expire will hurt the poor.
    Taxing the rich doesn't make the poor wealthy.

    Obama is now destroying the economy. DOW 6000 is very close.
    Even if he is booted out in 2012, the damage is done.
    Thank You not Mr. Obama.

    Let's not forget about the brilliant Idea Obama has for cap and trade.
    That's going to cause those companies affected to close, and those services and products that come from the companies affected will cost more which is

    "indirect taxation".

    So so much for not "raising our taxes".

    Obama, Obama, Obama. Wake up!!

    For the money he is spending, a person would have to be extra stupid to think we are not going to pay for this.

    by this same time next year we will get the speech about how to keep the new national health care and to keep from cutting spending we all must do our part and the taxes will have to be raised.

    its his typical double talk, he did not raise taxes right now, we all ( if we qualify) wil see a 13 dollar a week savings from taxes for 6 months then an 8 dollar a week (if we qualify) for the second 6 months.

    its after that we will get a 25 dollar a week increase, but he will have held to his word about the cut....... he just never said for how long


    and all the drooling bots will say its a good idea to raise the taxes because we have to worry about the debt and this new great quality health care is worth paying for.


    his tax cut adds up to $546.00 per person (if you qualify) for the year, aprox 45.50 a month or 10.50 a week.

    When he raises taxes, its going to be by more than 10.50 a week, national health care isnt cheap and you can only bleed the rich so much.

    I seem to remember you saying something about Obama not trying to add more gun control laws too, yet he's doing it. Well I believe Obama MUST raise taxes on the middle class to pay for his doubling the debt plan.

    It may not have happened just yet, but it will. Just like it did with gun control.

    When prices go up on goods and services because of policies and the way the government is gooing to tax the wealthy, it will cause prices of those goods and services which will get passed to the consumer.

    So by saying that Obama is not going to increase taxes is false.

    It's just not direct taxation.

    Absolutely true.

    Obama's budget plans to increase taxes on the oil, gas, and pharmaceutical industries ...

    ... who in turn will up the price of their products to the consumer ...

    ... who in turn will either pay the price of these necessities, robbing other personal budget items and thus reducing sales to their budget-robbed industries, causing additional depression-precipitating drops in those industries' sales complete with resultant lay-offs in spiral ...

    ... or will simply reduce purchases of the oil, gas, and pharmaceutical necessities, sacrificing in misery, reducing sales to those industries, causing additional depression-precipitating drops in these industries' sales complete with resultant lay-offs in spiral ...

    ... Either way with a net result of no increase in tax revenue going to the government ... and the country worse off than before.

    An increase in taxes on an industry without an accompanying fixed ceiling applied to both their executive management remuneration and their pricing to the consumer is merely an exercise in futility ... and, of course, such wage and price fixing is beyond the balls-size of BHO, despite his African heritage.

    The only solution to the present recession-depression problem is to create new private sector jobs while simultaneously eliminating moochers ... and short of eliminating all off-shoring, out-sourcing and in-sourcing, and deporting illegal aliens, that's not likely to happen either.

    Hold onto your family jewels, folks -- it's gonna be a bumpy ride.

    Ya' wanna cut taxes?

    Fine.

    Let's let things play-out, as they are, until everyone's laid-off.

    Like magic, EVERYONE gets a "tax-cut"!!!

    Good thinkin', there.

    :rolleyes:

    You know that's fine Shaman... yes we borrowed from China to pay for over spending then. Guess what... Bush is gone, and your boy just doubled our national debt. How's he going to pay for that?

    You are one trick pony without a clue. The one trick is "bush sucks" but you don't have a clue that your guy is already far worse. So what's the point?

    That is the most idiotic thing I've heard lately. But fitting for you. You really don't get that cutting taxes, which allows consumers to have money to... consume with, will benefit the economy?

    Of course if everyone is laid off, then the government will go bankrupt... so maybe that's not a bad idea after all.

    We have to do both, cut taxes and decrease careless spending.

    No one who was ever in debt borrowed more and was able to get out of debt. It is snowballing out of control.

    Also, when I say government, I don't mean Dems or Repubs, I'm lumping them both together. Because I believe both sides have let this country down.

    Until businesses are given the right conditions to succeed, there will be no growth to this economy.
