    How about all those UNNEEDED tax cuts that the rich got for the last eight years. Where's that money? Don't you think it's time for the wealthy to start coughing up some bucks? Oh, that's right, it's never time for them to pay up. Good times or bad. They need tax cuts.

    Let's look what they did with their last tax cuts. Almost bankrupted the economy. I say they should pay more taxes just to keep them out of trouble. If they can throw billions at worthless stocks, then then can throw billions to help save and improve this county.

    Broke? I'll show you who is broke. The middle class taxpayer that pays the bill for billionaires who use tax cuts to fund worthless hedge funds. The middle class is broke. Let's see the wealthy stand up and do more than wear a flag pin, for Chrissakes.

    •  again, a great speech (0+ / 0-)

      and again, you're preaching to the choir. Heck, I would not only repeal all their tax breaks, but I would increase the tax rate on the rich to 90%. And then cut the bloated military budget by two-thirds. (shrug)

      But we BOTH know that Obama is certainly not gonna do that -- which leads us once again to the simple fact that, as things stand right now, the money's just not there. Even if we DON'T have to bail out any more failed banks.

      If we repeal every tax cut Bush granted, it still ain't enough money to do one-third of the things that Obama wants to do.  Heck, it ain't even enough to simply pay for the Iraq War.

      So where's the money gonna come from?

      And if the money ain't there, what gets cut first?

      No one seems to want to answer those questions.  And they seem to be, uh, pretty basic questions.
