    It's funny that you even say this, since it was your party that held the economy hostage in 2010 and 2011...

    Please people wake up and smell the coffee, Team Obama did not take a vow not to work with republicans, but the republicans have taken a vow to block anything that Team Obama is supporting and what the republicans are during is stopping progress and that unAmerican in my book.

    both. Obamas agenda for America is to be part of the one world government. We will be poor and we will be watched by big brother. We will also pay 50% in taxes.

    Obama is doing everything in his power to ruin this nation. Making it impossible for businesses to thrive & for people to work & thrive, all while making life blissful for those who choose to sit around all day and do nothing.

    Not only does he want you to be down, he wants to kick you when you're down by imposing an ( impossible for most people to afford ) mandatory health plan. Does this sound like a fiscally intelligent man to you ? Obama has no clue about what makes this country tick, but boy he has no problem buying his group of welfare followers. I hate to see what America will be like after this crowd gets done moving 'Forward' ... right over the cliff.

    He doesn't care one way or another. He gets his way or he lets us suffer. All the same to him since he hates this country unless it is funding his desires.

    If the rich already pay 80% of the revenue the government takes in and we have about 1.9 trillion to 2 trillion a year in revenue and entitlements alone are about 2 trillion headed for 3.9 trillion when Obamacare kicks in then all the rich pay now is for welfare programs thus we have a nation sinking in debt because the running of our nation cost 2.5+ trillion a year not including entitlements. So by adding more cost by adding more agencies, employees and entitlements to our failing government you will find it wont be fixed by taxing every single person in the USA by 80% of their income. Jobs are leaving our nation faster than water draining from a bucket with no bottom. Less jobs less revenue. Go figure. Entitlements anyone?

    Entitlements are just things we paid for all our lives. I've been paying for medicare since 1966. Social Security since 1965. Don't call it an entitlement. Those things are insurance I paid for and expect to get. Anything else would be fraud.

    I am talking about welfare, food stamps, section 8, medicaid, and energy assistance. Combine them all and it is almost 2 trillion a year now.

    Like Bill Maher said, Republicans have been treating President Obama like an angry black man with a liberal agenda. That is exactly what President Obama should do by becoming an angry black man with a liberal agenda.

    Republicans don't seem to get it. As long as they play hard ball like they have been doing for the last four years, the fiscal cliff will happen - and then they will have a dilemma, to go on record opposing a tax cut for the middle class and the poor after January 1 when legislation is proposed, or voting for it.

    With reelection, President Obama is holding most of the cards in this game. If the American people wanted taxes cut for the rich, Romney would have been elected.

    Foreign aid has been a part of this countries way of doing business for many years. Look at the Marshall Plan in 1948. This country gave $13 billion to Europe after the war to rebuild their economies. While $13 billion may not sound like too much, our GDP for 1948 was $258 billion, so we gave Europe 5% of our GDP. If we gave away 5% of our GDP today, that would be $760 billion. In 2010, the US spent $57 billion in foreign aid.

    The primary reason why our national debt is so high today is because of the tax cuts passed by Reagan and GW Bush. When Reagan took office, our national debt was only $930 billion. By the time GW Bush took office, our national debt was at $5.7 trillion, and by the time Obama took office that debt had grown to $10.6 trillion. When Reagan took office, the top tax bracket in this country was at 60%, and he lowered it to 28% in seven years. Clinton raised the top tax bracket to 40%, and the national debt only grew by $1.6 trillion in his eight years, and our debt was actually decreasing in parts of 1999 and 2000 because we had a budget surplus for those two years. From 9-30-1999 to 9-30-2000 our national debt only increased by $18 billion, and if Bush didn't cut taxes, our debt would have grown by about 33% in eight years, or by $1.8 trillion, so that when Obama took office our national debt would have been around $7.5 trillion.

    It's amazing to me how so many people will ignore the US Constitution. I suggest that you read the XVI amendment to that document. Here, I'll quote it for you.
    "The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without appointment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration."

    Government representatives are ELECTED in our country, and it's up to them how our tax dollars are spent. Geopolitical considerations requires foreign aid.

    Your argument makes no sense. If you are arguing that this country should not be giving foreign aid, then I suggest you take it up with your representative.

    I'll repeat myself one time only. Our ELECTED representatives determine how our tax dollars are spent, and the rate that those taxes are.

    Just think if you were a millionaire in the fifties. The top federal income tax bracket from 1951 through 1964 was at 91%. That means you would get to keep $9 out of every $100 you made, and you're complaining about the tax rates or how they're spent today?

    You are citing a Republican myth - that trickle down economic principles work. It does not, and that was proven time and time again. The economic prosperity in the late 90's was due to the passage of PAYGO in 1991, that prevented Congress from spending more monies than revenues were taking in, which resulted in budget surpluses for two years in a row in 1999 and 2000.

    The dot com bubble refers to the value of internet stocks, not the number of people employed. During the Clinton administration, there were 22.5 million new jobs created, and the internet companies made up no more than 6% of those new jobs, or about 1.35 million jobs, while about $5 trillion of market value was lost with the dot.com bubble bursting.

    A little, but it was the tax increase in '93 that had the most effect.
    In 2000, revenues as a percent of GDP was at 36.93%, but after Bush tax cuts in 2003 they fell to 31.03%, at least 2% lower than at any year during Clinton.

    We agree on that. From 2000 to 2008, federal spending rose from $1.9 trillion a year to $3.2 trillion a year, or an increase of 69%.
    http://articles.businessinsid...

    What this country needs is to get revenues back to 2000 levels at 36% to 37%. In 2010 we were at 32.47%. Plus, spending has to decrease on everything, from the defense budget to Medicare. Tax increases and spending cuts are the only way to address the deficit.
