Katie:"You talked about tax cuts. There's been quite a brouhaha about your comment that paying higher taxes for those making a lot of money is the patriotic thing to do. Your vice presidential rival, Governor Palin, said to the rest of America, that's not patriotism; raising taxes is about killing jobs and hurting small business and making things worse."
RUSH: You know, I don't care how powerful you think you are, there's one principle, senator, you need to understand: It's not your money. And when you start talking about who does and who does not need a tax -- that's none of your business. And, Senator, the last I looked the federal government spending, what, $2.9 trillion. Senator, do you think, rather than raise taxes on anybody, that if you want to give the middle class, however you define it, a tax cut, why do you have to take it from some other citizen? Why don't you take it from your own damn stockpile at the US Treasury? There's so much fraud and so much redundancy in government programs, don't tell me you can't find a little money out of $2.9 trillion, to give a tax cut to? Why does it have to come out of everybody else's pocket. You guys have the biggest stash of money in the whole country.

You being a moderator should know better than to post an inflamatory post as you did.

Maybe if you say "Biden got owned" a few more times you'll fulfill your goal of trying to rile people up just for the sake of riling people up.
Newsflash: The American people have been getting "owned" by both parties for a long time now.
