    Radical right-wingers, especially teabaggers, are notorious for dismissing facts that contradict their assertions. So they yell and scream if you post anything that links to anything but a right-wing website.

    I don't expect any of that lot here to be able to actually read any of this, and actually come up with anything that contradicts what's said here. But for the people who like to investigate and understand what's going on, this is an excellent source of responses to the current raft of republican lies.

    It also puts the lie to someone's continued assertions that he'll have to lay people off - if he does, he's one of 1.4% of small business owners who would be affected - so I really have to belief its just another lie.

    Very NICE.
    Great info - although the RJ right-wing spin monkeys are bound to ignore this thread because it so successfully debunks and debullshits the right-wing BS they've been feverishly dumping on other threads.

    I had noticed that they are actively avoiding it. icon_smile.gif Not that I wouldn't have predicted that. They don't like facts, eh?

    Those very same Bush tax cuts?

    Are responsible for a Sizable chunk of our current deficit

    Ezra Klein from the Washington Post pointed this out recently when he said that the core principle of the republican party is tax cuts
    It's not fiscal responsibility because when they are in power ie: with ronnie and Bush I and def so with Bush II they run up the deficit
    and when democrats are in power they moan responsibility
    But all through that they chant tax cuts tax cuts tax cuts
    we've had tax cut after tax cut
    with the outcome that the top 2 % get golden and the rest of us get laden with a massive deficit

    It's not unlike third-world countries where the top guys take out huge IMF loans, abscond with the money, and leave the country in debt.

    Not if the facts make the Republican party look bad.
    And they do.
