    The ones for the richest 1-2% have been a waste of money and should be allowed to die.

    Unfortunately, the Repubs are killing any chance of extending the tax cuts for the other 98-99% of Americans.

    PROVE that what I posted is untrue, SB.
    Otherwise, YOU are the one lying.
    Which of course would be nothing new.

    First of all, I understand this will be difficult for yoy to understand but I'll try and go slowly for ya.

    First of all , to imply that they are a waste is to alsio imply that they belong to you (or the government, if you like). They do not. they belong to the people who made the money.
    Secondly, they can only be counted as a cost if they are already spent.

    For the second part of your post.

    The Repubilcans could only kill the tax cuts if there were a bill introduced into the house. Since the democrats haven't introduced a bill, there is nothing on the floor to kill. This is just a democrat strawman, an attempt to shift blame away from democrats for not having taken up the tax issue.

    I just proved what you said was untrue.

    I don't see you bitching and whining about the $3trillion that the rest of the tax cuts would "cost", if they belonged to the government.
