the buck stops with obama his own words.


Like the burger king slogan

"Have it your way"


but while your focused on that small buck the TROPHY Buck is still paying for 3 wars, still financing wall street, and still running up the tab the same way they were before Obama arrived on the scene.

We need to - reduce - the size of the U.S. Government.
We need to - repeal - ObamaCare and remove - uncertainty - in corporate America.
The U.S. Supreme Court is going to declare it unconstitutional anyway. Why wait?
We need to - reduce - the price of gas to $2 a gallon with a Drill - Baby - Drill executive order.
The speculators will drive the price down just like they did in 2008.

That would give Americans more $$$ in there pockets to spend.

Does this make sense to you?

Some of you are nuts.

You want to increase taxes for the poor and middle class....lowering their spending power...but at the same time give the wealthy more money...money which they are hoarding.

PROFITS DON'T CREATE JOBS.

How long are some of you going to keep buying into this BS??

Jobs and wages are a LOSS of profit. Yeah a company needs to make money to exist...no S sherlock....doesn't bother you that the wealth disparity is exploding?

Do you honestly think that increasing the payload on the poor in the middle class is going to save our country....giving more money to the SAME PEOPLE corrupting our government??

Come on.

Go blow smoke up someone elses ass.

yeah, look at all the jobs!!!!!! They 1st quarter profit up for the whole year...140 billion dollars. That's spectacular.

Just imagine all the job creation.

Divide that 140 billion by 50,000..

That's 2,880,000 JOBS at 50k per year.

I'm sure they are coming cuz they told us so...they need the cash to create jobs!!!!

No, really it makes zero sene to me, prices went down in 2008 when the economy started to tank, you remeber that? Like the Dow crashed hundreds of points a day and a half a million people were laid off every month or so.

The point of Speculation is to make money Eurisko


Speculators don't speculate to make less profits

You can't be that dumb, you're joking right?

Socialists have a hard time with the whole concept of Capitalism.
Instead of prosperity i think they prefer fair shared sacrifice and a long unending recession.

Raising taxes during a recession is BAD.

See video below:
- Obama Draws Line in Sand -

The latest numbers on the U.S. economy are terrible.
Unemployment is up to 9.1%.
Growth is slowing! So here we have this nitwit drawing a line in the sand.
Lets raise taxes and just see what happens.


IMO obama is playing perfectly into conservative's hands with this.

After obama (foolishly for himself and the progressives) extended the tax cuts last time, he set them to expire at the perfect time to make them a 2012 campaign issue. Then obama will have to try and sell or explain to voters suffering from an already lousy economy why they should agree with increasing taxes and making their lives worse and re-elect obama.

Ask Jimmy Carter how well that re-election strategy works ...

no they are better with money that you are.

half this country not working and not paying taxes and getting paid by taxes is corruption .

47 million american with their hands out and not producing anything is corruption at is height.

and the bad guys are the lazy bums not the people who pay and make things for everyone else and who finances those lazy bums.

seriously come on.

short sightedness is a fact that those people are elesewhere in the world because of actions and policies because people cant think for themselves.,

as long as someone else is footing the bill and providing for them why think at all.


yeah smoke ass whatever and so much for civility.


no matter the income everyone pays every contributed their fair share but like i said agian if your getting paid by taxes instead of paying into them then thats the biggest smoke up everyones ass in this country.

President George W. Bush said Drill - Baby - Drill in July 2008 when gas hit $4 a gallon.
4 months later gas was only $1.61 a gallon.
See?

Corporatists have a hard time distinguishing between good business and fraud

Your corporatist friends started this recession with systemic fraud... Sounds like 2008

While we're at it why not just pass a bill to eliminate ALL taxes for those who make over a million dollars a year.

Surely, this will bring us as many jobs as we can ever handle.

I disagree with those who say the Bush tax cuts have not created jobs --- just look at all the Chinese who have never had it so good.

I would also like for the Ryan budget plan to be passed. This would be the quickest way to reduce the FICA deductions from my pay check and raise my take home pay.

I guess I can worry about my health care plan later when I get old and sick. There are a lot of private insurance companies that are waiting for me to start sending them my money.

This isn't a tax on the rich; they were given an insane tax cut from Bush (and continued with Obama) back in the early 2000's TWICE. This was during the waging of two expensive wars. It stops the EXTENSION of tax cuts and returns taxes on the rich to pre-Bush times. I think it is quite obvious by now (2011) that trickle-down economics is a FAILURE.
