Christian73 saidNo. They want to restore fiscal sanity, whereas the Republicans are actively trying to hurt the economy because they believe it will hurt Obama.
One of the funniest things I've read in quite a while.
It's true. Why else won't they negotiate on policies they themselves have promoted right up until Obama agreed to them?
I think it's going to bite them in the ass though as they will be seen as unwilling to help improve the economy.
They've stopped because the Democrats are insisting on raising taxes.
The Federal government has enough revenue. They are spending too much.
Not only isn't that true, but it's laughably untrue. Taxes as a percent of GDP are the lowest they've been in 50 years.
The Republicans walked out because they have no solutions except to cut vital services to the elderly, poor children, and the unemployed.
1. Texas has one of the strongest economies in the nation right now.. Most likely because we have no state income tax and have not raised property and sales taxes to meet budget shortfalls. No, when you don't have enough money you don't take from the haves and give to the have-nots.... YOU QUIT SPENDING MONEY.
2. Republicans "walked out" because they stay true to their moral obligation to you to look out for your best interest. The elderly, poor children, and the unemployed are not the government's business. By lowering taxes, not throwing over a trillion dollars of "stimulus" money into the economy (to no avail), and not ramming legislation thru Congress and back-dooring things through the EPA- simply staying out of the private sector- the latter two of your proposed problems would be eliminated. And, believe it or not, the Republicans aren't going to do away with Mmedicare and Social Security. But both of those programs will be bankrupt by the time you become eligible for their benefits if your party continues to turn a blind eye to the many fallacies of entitlement programs.
I've yet to figure out why far left liberals think that trickle up poverty is better than trickle down Reaganomics.. The problem with our economy and all of these entitlement programs and huuuuge government spending is eventually the government will run out of other people's money.
Do research man, respond to this with the highest federal income tax bracket during the 70's. I believe it was way over 60%. Robbery. Plain and simple.
