    the GOP wants us to think that the Bush tax cuts are good for the economy, when more jobs have been lost under them than at any other time...

    Meanwhile the Republicans in congress were busy blocking tax cuts for small businesses - the tax cuts that would have helped with unemployment had they been passed earlier.

      cheat, PERIOD! They encourage the selfish and mean to be more so.

      Especially tax cuts for the rich.

      Those created the conditions for the bubble that burst. They didn't hire anyone. They bought the rotten lies of their brokers who sold them the fake bonds and the fake insurance in order to steal people houses with liar loans and liar foreclosures.

      Tax cuts are a giant lie.

      F*** tax cuts. Of course, this is the real reason this country was founded....by rich evil men (who owned people and their enablers) not wanting to pay taxes. The more things change the more they stay the same.

      Rich people being supported by everyone else. They have more to lose so they should pay more. Some of them caused most of the trouble so they should pay more.

        You realize that the British taxes on the colonies were regressive, right? Rich slaveowners were in fact the strongest Loyalists during the Revolution, whereas the poor and working-class were the main agitators all along.
