    It’s not so much that I think Congress is TRYING to make things worse. However, I cannot see true reform — which we desperately need at the Federal level — occurring unless and until it no longer benefits individual men and women financially to be there more than it benefits their constituents to have them there. Does that make sense? We are supposed to have a representative government, but it seems like the only true representation is for those who have big money and power of course to throw into the pile. Seems like our “representatives” snarf that stuff up and leave the real voice of the people to whisper deftly in the wind. I believe the healthcare bill that recently passed is the most supremely perfect example.

    What are tax cuts good for when you’re depriving the poor, causing crime infestation, the prisons filling, too little police protection, schools underfunded, JOB INCENTIVES NOT HOT ENOUGH TO RAISE A BLISTER ON A GNATS BUTT! The National debt increasing because you can’t cut enough to offset what you’re losing in tax revenue BECAUSE YOU’RE CUTTING JOBS WITH SPENDING CUTS! OUR TAX BASE IS HURTING FROM OUTSOURCED, OFFSHORE, AND ILLEGAL LABOR! THAT’S WHERE OBAMA NEED TO FOCUS AFTER HE GET’S THE PUBLIC OUT OF DEBT BY REVERSING BANKRUPTCY LAWS WHICH USE TO PROTECT BORROWERS FROM LENDERS! YOU DIDN’T HAVE THIS GROSS OVER LENDING! OBAMA’S PLAYING THE WRONG GAME FOR THE CIRCUMSTANCES! SHOULD HAVE DONE WHAT HE GOT ELECTED FOR FROM JUMP! UNEMPLOYMENT RATES REVEAL IT! IT’S HOCUS POCUS! HE’S GOT THE RECONCILIATION PROCESS, SO WHAT’S REALLY HOLDING HIM BACK?! HE NEEDS TO STOP BLAMING REPUBLICANS AND DO WHAT HE SAID! HIGH UNEMPLOYMENT AFFECTS THE BUDGET! USE THE RECONCILIATION PROCESS!

    Taxes are the fairest way of operating an economy to consistently supply the jobs America needs. We’re settling for economics that allow a scarcity of jobs that run up taxes to solve problems it creates, like leaving people destitute, homeless, crime ridden, school closings, and run up the National Debt because our wealthy buy congressmen to keep their taxes low when they are outsourcing our tax base and making big profits! It’s total GREEDY BASTARD NONSENSE! IT’S NOT THE BEST WAY TO RUN AN ECONOMY OR WORLD! IT WILL TURN IN ON IT’S SELF AND DESTRUCTION WILL FOLLOW!

    Percy,
    Destruction is the point. That is what the goal is, the reason for all of the nonsense and idiocy going on in our government. As for schools closing, check into what the real reasons are behind that. Too much money going into the wrong hands. In our disctrict, millions of dollars were cut from the school budget this year. What was cut? Good question-transportation is one. What wasn’t cut, not a single administrative job, and in this district, that means you make no less than $100,000 per year. Not a mile from my house, a brand new administrative building is being built for the school district. The money is there, it’s just being spent in ways that do not benefit one student in the district. I”ve been to the current district offices, and there is nothing wrong with the building or space. As a matter of fact, it is never even fully staffed. It is ridiculous and sickening.

    Spending creates jobs. Cutting spending in a recession is plain stupid! Tax the rich to get more money to spend! They’re outsourcing our tax base or making big profits from outsourcing! It’s only right they be taxed to balance the tax revenue deficit!

    I agree with money going into the wrong hands. CEO’s, school superintendent, college administrators, city administrators, and greatly the banks and Wall Street still reaping the big profits from the scam they pulled. TALK ABOUT MONEY GOING INTO THE WRONG POCKETS! It’s like no one is paying attention to big salary people benefiting like we’re still in a housing boom. Hard to turn back those salary increases once given!

    WE’RE PAYING CONGRESS TO SCREW US AND TAKE BIG PAYOFFS FROM BIG BUSINESS! IT’S A BLATANT LIE THAT WE ARE A DEMOCRATIC SOCIETY! BIG CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS ARE THE ONLY VOTES THAT COUNT. DEMOCRACY IN AMERICA IS A BIG FAT HYPOCRISY LIE! Obama makes it look like he’s for the people but he hasn’t done what he said or should have because he’s playing the BIG CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS! They are all BIG BUSINESS WHORES TO SOME DEGREE! Obama said he’d CHANGE IT, but his party talked him out of it! He was either blowing smoke or not willing to fight for what he truly believes!

    I’m for a lot more than the 39% tax on incomes over $200,000. I’d be happy with 60-70% on incomes over $200,000 until every American has, at least, a living wage job! You could give them tax reductions as the unemployment rates fall! THAT’S THE RIGHT WAY TO RUN THE COUNTRY! THAT’S FREEDOM AND JUSTICE FOR ALL! OTHERWISE, IT’S JUST TOTALLY CORRUPTIONS AND CONSTITUTIONAL HYPOCRISY! RIGHT NOW WE’RE BEING HELD HOSTAGE BY BIG BUSINESS TO KEEP THEIR TAXES LOW! IT’S LIKE OBAMA’S BEEN READING MY BLOGS WHEN I CALLED THIS A HOSTAGE SITUATION! BUT THEN, WHO CAN CALL IT ANYTHING ELSE!

    We’d be out of this recession overnight if Obama would reverse the bankruptcy laws, IMPOSED BY BUSH TO SLOP HIS HOGS, so it’s easier to go bankrupt without owing anyone and top it off with a clean credit record for everyone so people can start borrowing again. AT THE VERY MINIMUM, HE’D STOP ALL THAT MONEY FROM GOING INTO THE WRONG POCKETS! STOP THE GREED OF THE BANKERS! It’s not like a lot of people deserve their present bad credit after THE BANKS, WALL STREET, AND GOVERNMENT CAUSED INFLATION by putting all that money out there with housing and credit cards. Then, set back and spectated as oil speculations went out of control, driving up prices even more! That’s why the public is in debt, but people would rather blame the victims because they had to borrow more as prices went up and up, and wages didn’t! SOMEHOW THE IDIOTS IN WASHINGTON DON’T GET THAT SOLVING PUBLIC DEBT IS THE KEY TO GETTING BACK ON THE RIGHT FOOTING! NOT MORE SMALL BUSINESS LOANS WHEN THERE’S NO ONE TO BUY! WE NEED TO FREE THE SPENDER! ANY MORON KNOWS THAT! Looks like this JOBLESS RECOVERY is all about enough people turning 18 so the banks can put them in debt! IT’S STUPIDITY COMPOUNDED!

    Obama was suppose to come in and clean up the town. He was too stupid to get rid of the Bush Tax Cuts right away like he said, to get elected. HAD POLITICAL CAPITAL UP THE YIN YANG TO DO IT! He’s letting the banks continue to profit and made the people pay back bank bailouts! OBAMA’S CREDIT CARD REFORM MISSED THE MARK in that he let the interest rates, they can charge, go without a cap! There’s no reason any bank should make more than 10% on credit cards! No more than 15% in worse cases! THERE’S NO CAP AT ALL NOW! WHAT?! THANKS OBAMA! RIGHT SAID, OBAMA IS NO MESSIAH!

    THE PEOPLE MUST DEMAND THE RIGHT TO VOTE DIRECTLY TO GET RID OF CORRUPTION AND IN CASES WHERE CONGRESS IS STALLING ON IMPORTANT MATTERS. THE FIRST THING WE SHOULD DO IS LIMIT CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS TO $10 PER AMERICAN, PER ELECTION, AND NO OTHER TYPE OF CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS! NO FUND RAISERS BECAUSE THAT ONLY INVITES BIG BUSINESS CONTRIBUTIONS! LET THE GOVERNMENT PAY OR LEGISLATE TV TIME FOR POLITICAL CAMPAIGNS. ALL THE CANDIDATES ALREADY HAVE FREE ACCESS TO YOUTUBE AND CAN EMAIL AND THROW UP A WEBSITE. WHAT’S THE REAL NEED FOR CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS ANYMORE, BUT FOR BUY POLITICIANS?! STOP THE EXODUS FROM GOVERNMENT TO BIG BUSINESS JOBS WITHOUT A WAIT OF 10 YEARS AND YOU GET A BETTER GOVERNMENT “OF THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE”!

    If our federal government were rated by the American Institute of Philanthropy, it would get an “F”. Too much cost to raise $100, too much administrative overhead, too little spent on direct programs and services.
    I think we need to re-evaluate the role of the Federal government, and eliminate the departments and programs that were not strictly provided for as powers in the Constitution. The role of the Federal Government should be limited to protection of its citizens from foreign attack; support of international trade; regulation of interstate commerce; protection of individual rights, and providing regulations that provide a level playing field so the private sector can compete effectively.
    The Federal government has become a social engineering behemoth, picking winners and losers in the private sector, effecting transfers of wealth from the wealth creators to those who only consume, and sucking the life out of our nation’s economy.
    Remember, the Founding Fathers’ biggest concern was that the State (government) would trample on the rights of the Nation (the people).
    A good first step would be to repeal all of the current federal Tax code, and substitute a new, simpler one that effects all citizens equally, with no exceptions or preferences allowed. Take a look at what Harding and Coolidge did and what results their tax changes achieved. Reduce the Federal government’s budget down to a size that is the same % of GDP as we had back then, and we might have a chance to get things under control.

    Percy Graves is a MORON! You can’t unfairly tax someone twice as much as everyonelse, simply because they worked hard to get to where they are in live and to have a better life than their parents. This is America, where you have a choice. You can work hard, do it on your own, get the education it requires, and earn the salary that you want. Giving government handouts to people that CHOSE to do without, makes absolute NONSENSE! I worked my butt off to get where I’m at, and so did my husband. Nothing has been given to us. We simply lived and worked by the American Dream, live with intregety, be honest, work hard and everything you need will be provided. We make 200K a year, buy only 1 new car the rest are used, have 2 kids that we save up their college, and live in a modest house. We also have 8 employees that we give great benefits and salaries. However, if the government was going to take away more than half of our income then why would we bust our butt, work 7 days a week, 50 weeks a year? I’ll stay home with our kids and do nothing before I keep working that hard for Uncle Sam to take more THAN HALF out of my paycheck! You’re an idiot if you think anybody would be so stupid to continue to work to have 1/2 their salary sucked up and handed to those that chose to sit on their lazy butt, chose not to get a job, chose not to pay for their children, and live off foodstamps and Section 8. We are creating a nation of lazy, un-ethical, slobs! Everyone should pay taxes, not just the top wage earners. Why on earth is it fair to punish those that do the right thing, and reward those for doing the wrong thing. The people that don’t work, feel entitled to 2 years of unemployment. They can get a job, but they would rather make a little less on unemployment and we keep allowing it. It’s Alice in Wonderland.

You can’t unfairly tax someone twice as much as everyonelse, simply because they worked hard to get to where they are in live and to have a better life than their parents. This is America, where you have a choice. You can work hard, do it on your own, get the education it requires, and earn the salary that you want. Giving government handouts to people that CHOSE to do without, makes absolute NONSENSE! I worked my butt off to get where I’m at, and so did my husband. Nothing has been given to us. We simply lived and worked by the American Dream, live with intregety, be honest, work hard and everything you need will be provided. We make 200K a year, buy only 1 new car the rest are used, have 2 kids that we save up their college, and live in a modest house. We also have 8 employees that we give great benefits and salaries. However, if the government was going to take away more than half of our income then why would we bust our butt, work 7 days a week, 50 weeks a year? I’ll stay home with our kids and do nothing before I keep working that hard for Uncle Sam to take more THAN HALF out of my paycheck! You’re an idiot if you think anybody would be so stupid to continue to work to have 1/2 their salary sucked up and handed to those that chose to sit on their lazy butt, chose not to get a job, chose not to pay for their children, and live off foodstamps and Section 8. We are creating a nation of lazy, un-ethical, slobs! Everyone should pay taxes, not just the top wage earners. Why on earth is it fair to punish those that do the right thing, and reward those for doing the wrong thing. The people that don’t work, feel entitled to 2 years of unemployment. They can get a job, but they would rather make a little less on unemployment and we keep allowing it. It’s Alice in Wonderland.

    Polly, and WomenBizOwner, are prime examples of PRIMITIVE, MORONIC, SELFISH, BACKWARD THINKING NEANDERTHALS. Their solutions are for when the country was first established! The forefathers knew the constitution had to change with future conditions and it’s built into the Constitution. We don’t have wide open spaces where everyone can own enough land to grow crop and raise livestock, and hut in vast forest and fields to meet their needs. Only buttheads think our opportunities for success is fair and equal in America, especially since no one is controlling the exorbitant cost of education that can crash your future with the burden of heavy debt if you’re unlucky enough to not be selected to work in the field of your study! There are likely millions upon millions that are unlucky, working outside of their field of study! Millions are with degrees, stuck in college, or going back to college because those jobs went overseas, or are being victims of a down economy! If you’re lucky enough to work in a industry that has a high demand market you’re likely to become a snob because you’re too dumb to realize people working in lower demand markets are working just as hard as you are. There’s only so many places at the top and they are not always filled by our best and brightest! Discrimination of race, kin, religion, beauty, and such are real in the equation of who gets the job and who doesn’t! An awful lot of people are born into discrimination, destined to get very low quality education and struggle through college with a C average. What is that worth in any field?! They are a dime a dozen.

    All I’m saying is that the system needs to be tweaked so the less fortunate have enough for their basic needs and $1000 left at the end of the month to take advantage of further education for upward mobility! FULL EMPLOYMENT IS THE WAY! This will energize the nation by making the American dream possible for everyone! It’s a much better way to spend tax money rather than on the sick because of poor nutrition, or building more prisons and enlarging the police force because poverty produces criminals faster than Dunkin’s makes donuts!

    WE’RE TALKING FREEDOM AND JUSTICE FOR ALL! NOT JUST THE LUCKY FEW SUCKING UP BIG PAYCHECKS FROM HIGH DEMAND, BIG PROFIT MARKETS, OR OUTSOURCING OUR JOBS SO WE DON’T HAVE ENOUGH TO TEND TO THE NATIONS NEEDS! If you really think anyone will not work just as hard after $200,000 is earned because they will only get 30% of their efforts, you’re dead wrong because I said the rates would fall as the unemployment rate falls! Somehow you decided to push that out of the picture to call me a Moron or totally dismiss my perfect solution to stop the ship from thinking. EVEN IF THERE ARE MORE THAN A FEW THAT WILL NOT WORK AS HARD AFTER $200,000 IS MADE, MY SOLUTION IS STILL A WINNER! It means a greater potential for others to enter the market and sop up what you foolishly leave on the plate! With any luck, they’ll run your selfish butt out of business! We need a better business community that see how we’re all connected! CHANCES ARE, YOU’RE SNOB, SNUBBING PEOPLE WHO ARE IN SOME WAY RESPONSIBLE IN PRODUCING YOUR PAYCHECK even if it’s bank deposits that the banks loan you to do business! YOU NEED A NEW ATTITUDE!

    You keep doing what you’re doing because you’re not very good at thinking! Leave that to people like me! I’m one of the brightest, but given all the bad breaks, and in poverty because of it after a degree in business, yet I’ve arrived at a level of thought far in advance of Neanderthals like you guys. YOUR SOLUTIONS ARE FAILURES! WE’RE REDUCED TO PLUGGING HOLES WHEN WE SHOULD ESTABLISH A COURSE TO BETTER MANAGE AND SERVE A MASSIVE POPULATION WHERE 90% OF RESOURCES AND MEANS OF PRODUCTION ARE OWNED BY 10% OF THE PEOPLE. Somehow You Think It’s Fair That People Making Big Paycheck Are Not Being Overcompensated. THEN YOU’RE THE MORONS WITH INFINITE EXPONENTS! IT MAKES YOU SUPER MORONS!

    WE NEED TO STOP TALKING THE STUPIDITY OF SPENDING CUTS when we have an ever growing population and cost to meet their basic needs. There’s way too much exploitation going on! We’re shortchanging ourselves by buying products that caused our jobs to be outsourced and destroys our tax base! AMERICA NEEDS TO WAKE UP AND WEAN OURSELVES FROM SLAVE LABOR AND GET RID OF THE SLAVE MASTERS AND THE HARLOTS THAT SERVE THEM IN CONGRESS! HAVING SLAVE LABOR MAKE OUR PRODUCTS MEANS PRODUCING SLAVE LABOR IN AMERICA! THAT’S THE REALITY! LOW WAGES BRING LOW TAX REVENUES! SPENDING IS NOT THE REAL PROBLEM! IT’S ABOUT A REDUCED TAX BASE AND EXPLOITATION OF BASIC NEEDS! THE ONLY FAIR WAY TO ADDRESS IT IS HIGHER TAXES ON THOSE BENEFITING THE MOST BECAUSE THEY ARE ALSO, IN SOME WAY, BENEFITING FROM OUTSOURCED AND ILLEGAL LABOR PROFITS TRICKLING DOWN OR STOCK PROFITS FROM OUTSOURCED PROFITS! A COMPLETE NEOPHYTE KNOWS WE CAN’T CONTINUE DOWN THIS ROAD! A GREEDY BASTARD IS IN A WORSE CONDITION BECAUSE HE’LL CONTINUE DOWN THE WRONG ROAD WITH SELFISH BLINDERS ON, UNTIL HE DRIVES US ALL, RIGHT OFF THE CLIFF!

    WE MUST ALL PULL TOGETHER IN AN ORGANIZE, FAIR, AND JUST WAY TO PROVIDE A BETTER GOVERNMENT “OF THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE”!

    SPENDING CUTS ARE EQUIVALENT TO A GUY IN A CAR OFFERING A LITTLE KID CANDY. If the little kid stretch forth his hand to receive the candy, he could end up in the man’s trunk and later thrown in a ditch with his throat cut! THAT’S WERE WE’RE HEADED WITH POLITICIANS OFFING US THE SPENDING CUT CANDY TO AVOID TAXES! He wants to make you believe the solution to solving the inequities of capitalism is to throw out the needy into the street, those that have no job, disabled, sick, and aged.

    The wise know that only creates bigger problems because you’ll end up with runaway crime and disease that threatens everyone. The amount of poorly educated kids will grow because they’ll be going into foster care or living in a mission in crime entrenched hoods, and one parent families will increase! It also takes a lot of spending out of the economy! Remember, spending is why the banks refuse to loan small business because the spenders are deep in debt! Before you know it, you’re needing a lot more police and prisons you can’t afford already! People who have jobs will be under constant threat which can only lower their production with loss of sleep and stress and even death. IT’S EQUIVALENT TO CUTTING THE THROAT OF AMERICA AND THROWING HER INTO A DITCH AFTER YOU’VE RAPED HER!

    Cutting government budgets means cutting jobs which is counter productive! It sounds good politically and that’s why politicians sell it but it’s a loser! Paying too little taxes to meet our obligations is what has us on the way to hyperinflation and nothing else! Yes we need to do more to manage health care, basic needs, and education costs. Those are givens. The people exploiting those areas of profits should pay higher taxes so the less fortunate can afford them! BALANCE IS NEED!

    STUDY HYPERINFLATION AND YOU’LL FIND IT’S WEAK POLITICAL WILL TO RAISE ENOUGH TAXES TO PAY DOWN OUR NATIONAL DEBT until it’s out of control! Who should be most responsible for taxes to pay down our debt but the people most benefiting from the system financially! Yet, these are the people stopping enough funds going to pay down our debt because they don’t want to stop exploitation of basic needs, virtual monopolies, and the medical community and insurance companies from robbing the people or pay enough taxes to pay down our national debt! THEY ARE SUCH GREEDY BASTARDS THAT THEY’D RATHER KICK THE NEEDY TO THE STREET, ALL WHILE HOLDING RALLIES, CLAIMING TO KNOW GOD!

    That’s really who the people yelling for spending cuts are! HEADED UP BY AN AIRHEAD AND A FALSE PROPHET! Just Pied Pipering America to the river to be drowned! It’s plain sad there are soo many people that have no more sense than that! It’s the end of a great country if they succeed, because it’s turning left instead of right.

    WE NEED TO STOP TALKING THE STUPIDITY OF SPENDING CUTS when we have an ever growing population and cost to meet their basic needs. I will agree that we need to spend more efficiently, but cutting government spending in a recession is not reasonable! WE, IN FACT, NEED TO HAVE GOVERNMENT SPEND UNTIL EVERY ABLE BODY HAS A LIVING WAGE JOB! Alan Greenspan, the former Federal Reserve chairman blamed an unregulated free market for the housing and financial debacle. Now he favors repealing the Bush-era tax cuts. He knows a lot more about the economy than most anyone, but somehow real wisdom is slammed to the ground by neophytes and the masses follow their stupidity!

    There’s way too much exploitation going on and resulting in great public debt! That’s the place Obama needs to work on! Free those who were unjustly thrown into deep debt and had their good credit destroyed with scams by bankers and Wall Street to cause inflation, and stop virtual monopolies like Microsoft from overcharging on Windows software, along with other factors causing a need for more credit cards, pushing people into deep debt just to keep up, and THAT WILL BRING THIS COUNTRY OUT OF THE RECESSION OVERNIGHT! The jobless recovery Obama and others promote is little more than waiting on more people to turn 18 so banks can put them in debt and suck their blood! Even more blood to suck if they decide to go to college on a student loan! It’s ridiculous that we’ve excepted this crap we are feed. NOBODY IS TALKING ABOUT LOWERING THE COST OF COLLEGE EDUCATION THAT IS TOTALLY EXPLOITIVE! We deserve a vote without corrupt representation on matters like these! We know congress is bought and sold by the rich and we need to get rid of that system to vote directly or make it impossible for the rich to control their decisions! IT’S HYPOCRISY AT THE HIGHEST LEVELS OF GOVERNMENT, AND IT NEEDS TO END!

    We’re shortchanging ourselves by buying products that caused our jobs to be outsourced and destroys our tax base! The government needs to be more active giving incentives to have products bought by Americans, manufactured by Americans! Let’s get Obama busy freeing people unjustly stuck in debt and bringing manufacturing jobs back until every able American has a living wage job! Put penalties on imports to protect those products from slave labor competition! Tax the wealthy as much as you need to meet that objective and only let their tax rates fall as unemployment falls, and I GUARANTEE YOU’LL FORGET ALL ABOUT THE STUPIDITY OF SPENDING CUTS!

    WE NEED TO STOP TALKING THE STUPIDITY OF SPENDING CUTS when we have an ever growing population and cost to meet their basic needs. I will agree that we need to spend more efficiently, but cutting government spending in a recession is not reasonable! WE, IN FACT, NEED TO HAVE GOVERNMENT SPEND UNTIL EVERY ABLE BODY HAS A LIVING WAGE JOB! Alan Greenspan, the former Federal Reserve chairman blamed an unregulated free market for the housing and financial debacle. Now he favors repealing the Bush-era tax cuts. He knows a lot more about the economy than most anyone, but somehow real wisdom is slammed to the ground by neophytes and the masses follow their stupidity!

    There’s way too much exploitation going on and resulting in great public debt! That’s the place Obama needs to work on! Free those who were unjustly thrown into deep debt and had their good credit destroyed with scams by bankers and Wall Street to cause inflation, and stop virtual monopolies like Microsoft from overcharging on Windows software, along with other factors causing a need for more credit cards, pushing people into deep debt just to keep up, and THAT WILL BRING THIS COUNTRY OUT OF THE RECESSION OVERNIGHT! The jobless recovery Obama and others promote is little more than waiting on more people to turn 18 so banks can put them in debt and suck their blood! Even more blood to suck if they decide to go to college on a student loan! It’s ridiculous that we’ve excepted this crap we are feed.
