Letter: Illogical theory

According to the CBO, the three greatest contributors to the debt under Obama have been the Bush tax cuts, the unnecessary war in iraq and the war in Afghanistan, which is still a mess largely because we diverting all the resources to iraq. Obama has not gone on a spending binge. He is still cleaning up after Bush.'...

State panel wants more information before ruling on Obama’s ballot eligibility

Republicans make fools of themselves. They turn on fox news to hear how smart they are. Republicans go out and make even greater fools of themselves. Lather, rinse and repeat.

Tough ID laws may deter many voters

So you think state governments around this country spending millions of dollars in total to stop a non-existent problem is smart?

This isn't about being liberal or conservative. It is about common sense. Fiscal conservatives should be outraged at what is going on. We have much bigger problems we should be working on and much better things we should be spending our money on.

'Robin Hood in reverse:' Brownback's plan would raise taxes paid by poorest Kansans

Get a clue. The demand from the rich is a drop in the bucket compared to the demand from the rest of us. In this country one in 400 makes over a million a year. And that one doesn't own dozens of homes and hundreds of cars. They don't spend 10's of thousands at the grocery store every week or have thousands of outfits in their closet.

Demand from the poor and middle class is what makes this economy go. Period. The is why the republican economic policies are so insane. They are slowly killing the goose that laid the golden egg and they are too stupid to realize it.

'Robin Hood in reverse:' Brownback's plan would raise taxes paid by poorest Kansans

Actually, they do, along with a lot of help from the middle class. It's called demand and it's pretty simple math.

I just want the rich taxed at the same rate they were in the 90's. You remember the 90's, right? With the booming economy and all.

What's this blood and sweat you're talking about?

Taxes on rich

no one is saying half and half. The dems have made far more concessions on cuts than what they are asking for in new taxes, both in the super committee and during the previous budget talks.

When asked if they would accept a 10 to 1 cuts to new taxes deal all of the repub presidential candidates said no. 10 to 1! The repubs stance of no new taxes is insane.

you are the one with bad info. The bush cuts overwhelming benefited the rich. The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities calculates the cuts put an average of $860 in tax benefits the pockets of people earning between $40,000 and $50,000, a 2.2% increase. For those earning over a $1m the benefit was $128,832, a 6.2% increase.

I'm sure you can find numbers that say otherwise but I guarantee they will come from the Heritage Foundation or some other right-wing propaganda organization. those nut jobs actually claim the cuts increased overall revenue. Another example of the right living in a dream world.

Taxes on rich

According to the CBO, the single greatest factor in our current deficit are the bush tax cuts. Most economists agree on this. The only ones who don't are employed by right-wing think tanks like the Heritage Foundation, the people who promised us 3% unemployment if the bush tax cuts were passed.

No one is saying that we should just tax our way out of this hole. The Dems on the super committee just proposed trillions in cuts that the repubs refused to accept because of a modest tax increase on the rich. That is crazy. The only way out of this is a balanced approach and polls show the overwhelming majority of Americans now support that. The only ones who don't are the repubs who time and time again put ideology over country.
