    The issue is unemployment. What President Obama did not explain that tax breaks for the rich will not have an impact on unemployment, while tax breaks for the middle class will result in more money being spent and therefore result in less unemployment than otherwise. The framing in view of the deficit is irrelevant.

    Practice tolerance, kindness and charity.

      If tax cuts were the be all and end all to create jobs, since the current tax cuts have been in place for years, we should have more jobs than we have people to do them.

      Enough already. Stand up and fight. If you lose, you lose, but at least you tried. That's all I ask.
