"For the second time in as many presidential elections, Joseph Biden got to debate a young, attractive Republican candidate who was demonstrably less qualified to to be president than I am to be chairman of the World Bank. Joseph Biden is a very lucky man. The Great Political Matchmaker in the Sky keeps handing him people who are trying — and failing — to fight above their weight class, and he keeps blowing through what can now legitimately be called the Bum of the Quadrennium Club."

America sucks right?

What should we do?. I only ever hear you complain.

Why don't you make some positive suggestions? What course of action do you propose?

Are you simply about attacking? That ain't gonna get us anywhere.

[-] 0 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 1 year ago

I'll stop "complaining" about government corruption and profits from murder and imperialism when they stop happening

You do know we have for profit prisons in this country right? As well as the world's largest prison population. Am I ringing any bells?

Or should I just ignore all of this and say "God Bless America" or "at least we're not Yemen." ...?

I'm not "attacking" anything. My posts point out problems in America. How can you fix a problem if you don't talk about it and make it apparent to everyone?

Stop trying to silence people.

[-] 3 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

ain't tryin to silence you. I'm asking you to express a solution. That's the opposite of trying to silence. Do you not understand that, or are you just twisting my meaning? It's easy to complain.

Of course I know about the prison problems. Of course really we are talkin about :

  • an oppresive laws aimed at certain groups problem,

  • a prejudiced based police targeting problem,

  • an inadequate access to legal svcs problem,

  • an unfair application of justice in court problem.

  • a profit based on # of prisoner problem.

  • an effort to take away a certain groups vote problem.

  • a clever way to move certain groups out of cities and into suburbs for census fudging problem.

No? It's as simple as you pretend. But what remains is what solutions can we suggest.

I think the solution is addressing racism in America. And I would say further there is ONE party who is at the center of all the fear mongering around crime, tough on crime, war on drugs, willie horton, 3 strikes, stand your ground.

C'mon. speak up! You know what the solution is.

WE MUST END THE FEAR MONGERING.!!!!!!

replace racist conservatives w/ tolerant progressives, & protest for change that will benefit the 99%.

Wow that was fun. Let's do another issue. You pick it! Complaining boy!

Let me guess your solution is "Obama did it!" "Obama did it!"

Repubs are anti affirmative action, anti immigrant, against all efforts to correct racism in our society. Dems support and embrace many and all ethnic groups.

Repub Sen Lyndsey Graham recently said "we're not creating enough angry white men" to stay in power. 'Cause he knows they have to stop alienating every group besides old angry white men.

"we're not creating enough angry white men" wouldn't they support affirmative action then?

[-] 3 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

They are racists so no they do not support affirmativeaction.

And yeah minorities are suffering a grwat deal during this last four years.

Do you remember that we are recovering slowly from the greatest recession in 80 years. Repub created, and recovery slow because of repub obstruction.

Repubs don't care because the 1% (not a lot of non whites among the 1%) did fine during the repub created great recession. And the people who are always hurt the most are minorities.

You can't be serious.! So the people who lost everything were to blame.? The victims?

Please. Follow the money. Con jobs are perpetrated by the guys who get away with the loot. You gotta know that.

The bankers fraudulently gave subprime mtgs when the borrowers qualified for better deals. Bankers knew the borrowers would default, .but they bundled the bad loans, got fraudulent good ratings, used cds's, & insured against failures. Then sold them all over the world.

When bankers got in trouble by their own irresponsibility they got us to bail them out by threatening to stop lending. It was blackmail. We got mugged.

The bankers created this mess. The hard working decent American homeowners that were defrauded by the irresponsible, criminal bankers were the victims.

"the banks got bailed out, We got sold out!!"

And don't forget it.

[-] 3 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

In about all of you comments you mention the "racist Rep" Tell me, which party started the KKK?????

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

The Dems 150 years ago, when the repubs were the anti slavery party.

Why? Are you gonna make the ridiculous suggestion that the dem party therefore is the racist party? (Always is one I suppose).

Well let me cut to the chase. In the last 50 years there has been a switch. and Dems have become the party of minority support.

And the racists have gravitated to the repub party. (Nixins southern strategy, Reagans welfare queen assertion, Bush I willie Horton ad, Jesse helms, Strom Thurmond)

Repubs are anti minority, anti immigrant, anti LGBT, anti womens rights, anti elderly earned benefits,

So it don't matterwhat mistake the dems made 150 years ago. eben the racist votes the southern dems made 50 years ago.

The deep south confederate racist states are solidly red. They have kicked almost every dem down there.

These are the realities TODAY. Republican party id no longerthe party of Lincoln.

But I know all republicans aren't racists, but aren't all racists republicans?

AA "perpetuates the myth that minorities can't make it on their own" only for those who already believe that racist BS.

In fact AA only attempts to prevent the pervasive oppression, and racism against minorities. It does a good job at that, and as a result the racist oppressors have been trying to end it since it's inception.

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

the state of florida recently passed a plan for racially based academic goals.by 2018the state wants 90% of asian students, 88% white students, 81 % hispanic students and 74% of black students to be at or above reading level. for math, its 92% asian, 86% white, 80% hispanic and 74 black students to at or above grade level. Either they are equal to the task and can do the job or govt has admitted that they're inferior and will always need help. WHY are there different standards for different groups?

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Your asking me why the republican racists in Florida have different standards.

How am I supposed to know? Do you think that White kids, & hispanic kids have the same opportunity to learn?

Do you think tests and curriculum favor one race over the others. Do you think poverty affects the ability to learn.? How about hunger? do kids who ain't eaten have a disadvantage?

Should we care? Shouldn't we just say hey I got mine, You're on your own!

AA does not correct anything. it makes perpetuates blacks as victims . it insulting and condescending. why should anyone be given a job or be accepted to a school based on race or ethnicity? you either qualify or dont based on your own record. not a phoney AA requirement that a quta be filled.

[-] 2 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

No one should get a job because of their race. AA simply attempts to prevent racism. It seeks to prevent people from being refused a job based on race.

[-] -2 points by alva (-442) 1 year ago

affirmative action is racist. its divisive . AA turns people into victims. it makes sure that people cannot succeed on their own merits. the irish ( No irish need apply )and italian immigrants of the last two centuries were not hired because of the ethnicity, yet they perservered and succeeded WITHOUT govt "programs".

[-] 2 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

The differences between Irish/italian difficulties is as vast as the oceans are wide.

Not a valid comparison. Sorry.

So then you don't support any effort to correct the 400 years of oppression against African Americans?

[-] -2 points by alva (-442) 1 year ago

in case you havent heard slavery was abolished in 1865.affirmative action is not an answer to anything, its a feel good program . if you arent good enough , than you arent good enough for a particular school or job. why should you be accepted or hired based on your skin color? if i were trapped in a fire i would want the best firemen available, ones that did the best on the standard mental and physical tests, not the ones that were chosen because of their race or ethnicity.

[-] 3 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

I think it is program to ensure that minorities aren't discriminated against. Not to give them something they don't deserve or unable to do.

I think you don't understand the way the program works.

And the end of slavery was the beginning of new brutal oppression that lasted another 100 years. Since the 60's there has been continued oppression but a little less brutal.

So should we do nothing to correct what we have done to destroy therace of people who have built the nation, fought in every war and here longer than most including your family.

Both the Bush and Clinton administration failed to respond to the threat of Al Qaeda. Deregulations had nothing to do with the mortgage bubble as regulations do not stop bubbles. They never have and never will. Bubbles can occur from monetary excess which is the bigger problem. This has been proven over 300 years of monetary study.

There were laws broken and both the Bush and Obama administrations refuse to prosecute. Why Dick Fuld from Lehman is not brought up on charges is beyond me. It sends a horrible hazard message.

I don't expect the government to protect me and do the right thing. No matter who is in office they will be corrupted hence I don't want the spending my money.

I don't expect the US government to create a civilized society for me. I and my neighbors do that. Looking at President Obama's background , would you want him dictating morality to you?

[-] 2 points by WSmith (2091) from Cornelius, OR 1 year ago

Mortgage fraud and casino capitalism were the result of deregulation and the means in which the Banksters robbed us blind! See the Oscar winning documentary "INSIDE JOB."

If you want to be on your own fighting for whatever the greedy top 1% drops then Vote Republicon. They will provide all the fascist dictatorship you could desire. But if we want to be all together on the welfare of the whole society in life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and in truth, justice and the American way, Vote Dem. In a social democratic republic, the government is messy but ours, for us, and doesn't dictate.

In fact it was the1st time we CUT taxes during war time.

So no I do not think the norquist pledgers would raise taxes on the wealthy (as they should) during wartime.

It is traitorous that a representative has committed their loyalty to someone besides the constitution, or theirt constituents.

They should be voted out of office for this crime.

[-] -1 points by Faraujo (-4) 1 year ago

They have committed their loyalty to their constituents and protecting their hard earned money as compared to the corruption of Washington and the lobbyist. They are doing the opposite of stealing which is the real crime.

If taxes are to be raised then eveybody needs to pay,not just those who have done the best. Why would we want to penalize those are earning the most, that makes no sense.

I don't believe that

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Repubs have committed their loyalty to Norquist NOT their constituents. Thats the point. The repubs ONLY help the1%. Andconitually hurt therest of us.

So we're not penalizing the wealthy by raising their historically low taxes. We just need them to finally do their fair share. I mean they have done very well in our country. It's time they contributed to the recovery from the crash that the wealthy created.

On Today's Show (Randi Rhodes)

Friday, October 12, 2012

It's Friday, ya bastids!

Now that’s how you debate! I think I had almost as much fun watching that as Joe Biden seemed to be having doing it. The relentless lying of Romney and Ryan is a problem, and it’s horrifying to think that their strategy might work. Joe’s attitude told us that we can deal with it. All you have to do is keep a smile on your face… oh, and go ahead and laugh out loud at the really bad lies. Joe Biden believes that you cannot call a person a liar, even if they are blatantly lying. But he also knows you can use facial expressions to let everybody know that you know that they are a liar. The takeaway from this debate is—don’t be afraid to stand up to the malarkey! Some people are saying that using a term like malarkey makes Joe Biden sound old. That’s a bunch of hogwash! It’s horsefeathers, hokum, hooey, bunkum, and slushdoodle. OK, I made that last one up. Let’s just put it this way—it’s a “bunch of stuff.” Yes, at another point, Joe Biden used the phrase “bunch of... stuff.” I think he got halfway into it and decided that he had done enough dipping into the Big Book of Jazz Age Colloquialisms.

Once again, if you want to properly gauge how well Joe Biden did, just take a look at how poorly Fox News was trying to say that he did. Brit Hume actually called Joe Biden a “cranky old man.” Look, the guy is no spring chicken, but I guarantee he’s younger than anybody watching Fox News. (And yes, I deliberately used the term “spring chicken” so that the old-timers watching Fox News would understand.) Besides, what’s more likely to make an old guy cranky than a bunch of lies? Remember Big Daddy’s diatribe about “mendacity” in “Cat on Hot Tin Roof”? Did Joe laugh and smile at the things Paul Ryan was saying? What is he supposed to do when Ryan says Mitt Romney is “a car guy”? He’s lucky Biden didn’t throw up in his lap.

It’s somewhat less difficult to fact check this particular debate. Oh, Paul Ryan told plenty of lies... but at least Joe Biden began the fact-checking process during the debate itself. According to Think Progress, Paul Ryan told 24 myths in 40 minutes. That’s a lot of myths! He’s the Bullfinch’s Mythology of politics. Paul Ryan was spinning so many myths that I’m surprised that he didn’t get around to telling how Zeus made love to Leda in the form of a swan.

HERE COMES THE MATH >
9:31 pm Ryan: Romney didn't want to let Detroit go bankrupt because he's a 'car guy' Share FacebookTwitterTruth: Romney wrote an op/ed for the New York Times in 2008 called “Let Detroit Go Bankrupt.”


LATEST UPDATE 9:34 pm Ryan opposed the stimulus, then requested funds from it Share FacebookTwitter Biden just referenced Ryan’s stimulus letters. Here they are. Though he called the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act “a failure,” Paul Ryan took full advantage of it and requested money for an energy company in his district. He wrote at least five letters to Secretary of Energy Steven Chu expressing his support for grant applicants from his district and asking that they be given “prompt and full consideration.” Ryan claims he did not know about the letters until recently, though his name is signed at the bottom of each one. Watch his defense:


LATEST UPDATE 9:36 pm Ryan’s attack on Obama’s Medicare plan is highly misleading Share FacebookTwitter Ryan says President Obama “funneled” $716 billion out of Medicare to pay for the Affordable Care Act, ignoring the fact that his own budget makes the exact same cuts to the program. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) says the cuts Obama wants to make do not come at the expense of Medicare beneficiaries — as Ryan claims — but rather, from hospitals and health care providers in the name of cutting down on waste and increasing efficiency. In addition, the CBO also estimates the cuts will extend Medicare’s solvency by eight years. Fact checkers said Ryan’s Medicare statements are “mostly false.”


LATEST UPDATE 9:38 pm Ryan advocated for privatizing Social Security Share FacebookTwitter Don’t let Ryan’s apparent concern for seniors confuse you. Ryan has advocated for privatizing Social Security. If that had happened when Ryan pushed for it in 2008, people with private accounts would have fared significantly worse during the financial crisis, likely losing an average of $26,000 and having a negative real rate of return of -0.6 percent.


LATEST UPDATE 9:44 pm 90 percent of seniors are satisfied with Medicare Share FacebookTwitter Biden pointed out that, contrary to Ryan’s assertions, the majority of seniors are satisfied with their Medicare coverage. He’s right. A full 90 percent of seniors report that they are satisfied with their coverage under Medicare Part D.


LATEST UPDATE 9:52 pm Ryan cannot explain Romney’s tax plan Share FacebookTwitter Ryan is trying his hardest not to give an explanation of the Romney-Ryan tax plan. Martha Raddatz just called him on it. The reason he can’t give more details is because the plan doesn’t make mathematical sense. Their plan to reduce rates across the board by 20 percent, and pay for it by cutting deductions, would force tax increases taxes on 95 percent of the population, while those making more than $200,000 would see a net tax cut.


Ryan avoids the question of who will pay more taxes Share FacebookTwitter Because Romney’s tax plan is projected to raise taxes on middle class families by at least $2,000.


LATEST UPDATE 9:56 pm About those 6 studies Ryan was talking about... Share FacebookTwitter Ryan claims that 6 studies say the math adds up on the Romney-Ryan tax plan. If those are the same studies Romney has touted before, they prove that Romney would have to raise taxes on the middle class in order to keep his promise not to lose revenue.


LATEST UPDATE 10:14 pm Biden presses Ryan for details on foreign policy FacebookTwitter Romney/Ryan have continuously criticized Obama’s foreign policy strategy without offering any viable alternatives. For instance, asked about Syria during the debate, Ryan actually pointed to a similarity: “We agree with the same red line they do, on chemical weapons…they’re right about that.”


ABORTION
LATEST UPDATE 10:18 pm Ryan can’t defend his budget with Catholic teachings Share FacebookTwitter The US Conference of Catholic Bishops sent letters to various Congressional committees harshly criticizing Ryan’s budget, saying it disproportionately cut programs that “serve poor and vulnerable people.” These programs include food stamps, Medicaid, and other parts of the social safety net — the tools our society uses to take care of those who cannot take care of themselves..


The truth about the contraception mandate Share FacebookTwitter Religious institutions haven’t been forced to “violate their conscience” by paying for contraception, as Ryan insinuated. Obamacare’s contraception mandate contains a “widely accepted compromise that exempts houses of worship and other religious organizations from covering contraceptive services they object to.

Ryan has opposed abortion access for rape victims since 1998 Ryan just stated that he and Romney support an exception for rape victims. But in reality, Ryan does not think rape is a valid reason for a woman to seek an abortion.


LATEST UPDATE 10:21 pm Obama doesn't fund abortions abroad Ryan misunderstands the Obama administration’s policy, which allows foreign aid to fund lifesaving organizations that also may provide information about abortion or abortion services.


LATEST UPDATE 10:23 pm Ryan co-sponsored 'personhood' amendment While Joe Biden said the Catholic Church believes that life begins at conception, the Vice President said he would not impose that value on anyone else.
But Ryan co-sponsored a radical “personhood” amendment that endows a fertilized egg with “all the legal and constitutional attributes and privileges of personhood.” This type of legislation would outlaw abortion, invitro fertilization, and some forms of contraception.


LATEST UPDATE 10:26 pm Ryan says 'unelected judges' should not set our abortion policy But he wants five unelected justices to set our health care policy. And he gave a speech last year suggesting that unelected judges should impose “limited government, low taxes, [and] sound money” upon the country, regardless of what our elected officials enact.
The Constitution says nothing about judges setting economy policy — it say that choice belongs to the people’s elected representatives.

Joe Biden and women-

"His mom lived in Long Island for ten years or so. God rest her soul. And- although, she's- wait- your mom's still- your mom's still alive. Your dad passed. God bless her soul." --Joe Biden, on the mother of Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen, who is very much alive, Washington, D.C., March 17, 2010

Joe Biden truth- When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the princes of greed. He said, "look, here's what happened."

(In interview with CBS News, September 2008. However, Roosevelt wasn't president in 1929 and televisions were still experimental.)

[-] 2 points by BetsyRoss (-744) 1 year ago

Thanks for sending me the link bensdad. From your link:

"Senate Republicans on Thursday blocked the No.1 item on the president's congressional "to-do-list," refusing to allow a vote on a bill that would give tax breaks for companies that "insource" jobs to the U.S. from overseas while eliminating tax deductions for companies that move jobs abroad.

In voting against the bill, Republicans raised both substantive and procedural problems with the measure.

The bill fell four votes short of the 60 needed to bring it to debate, with 42 voting against it. Four GOP senators -- Scott Brown of Massachusetts, Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe of Maine and Dean Heller of Nevada -- voted in favor of the bill."

First, not a few weeks ago-3 months ago. Second this report says it failed the SENATE (not the House) which is controlled by Democrats, and it even had 4 GOP reps voting for it. It also says they did it because the bill had substantive and procedural problems. Third-it was not OBAMA's job plan, it was an initiative proposed by Michigan Democratic Senator.

In response to your suggestion that progressive policies have created the "banks gone crazy" debacle.

Banks gone crazy is a result of weak regulations which is conservative policy 101. So conservatives who blame progressives (who press for stronger regulations) are wrong. & likely just trying to twist the truth to cover their failed approach.

They can make the argument that its the result of gov and bank partnerships, like the bailouts. The right likes to call it progressive policy. The left likes to call it conservative deregulation.

In truth, its just raw fascism.

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

calling it fascism is just a weak attempt at minimizing the conservative policy of weak regulations at the center of the irresponsible bank behavior.

The bailouts came after the destructive bank actions. And it may not be conservative to bail out failing business, it certainly ain't nationalization which would be the progressive approach.

And even though you can argue it wasn't true conservatism, we all know that it was conservatives who crafted and pushed through the TARP bailout, because it was aimed at helping their corp 1% constituents.

And of course the dems caved in to vote forthe conservative crafted TARP.

Hows dat?

To suggests the parties are the same in general and on this specific issue is not accurate & is just a weak attempt to minimize the reality that conservatives support weak bank oversight.

They tried something similar and the repubs defeated it.

Repubs watered down the fin reform, And have delayed the detailed regulation writing in committee for almost 3 years.

It's like raking in massive profits and knowing that the dems are gonna push through regs that is gonna hurt your profits.

It's just like that. So you squeal like a stuck pig, & you call in yourrepub tools to obstruct, delay, & hopefully repeal.

This is a massive battle that they are desperate to win by electing more pro 1% conservatives.

  • Wall st is sceaming about it FOR real despit the profits they are making because they know only a 3rd of the new regs have been written. The profits you mention are meaningless in regards to their opposition to the coming regs.

  • Repubs have watered it down. FOR REAL. No fluff. Fluff is your OPINION!

  • Repubs have taken real steps/actions to bottle up regulation wriing in the committees. That is for real. The dems are fighting to get it done and the repubs continue to battle. Both parties may serve wall st but one has created the law that wall st hates. One party is fighting to implement it. The other is obstructing.

Your comment that they both serve wall st is just your OPINION. The actions that we have seen and listed are facts.

  • repubs won't repeal. If they fail it will be because progressive dems have stopped them.

If we want stronger fin reform we must vote out the pro 1% conservatives.

It's the only way. (until the new system emerges)

[-] 1 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 1 year ago

If these are facts, then please link the facts. HAve you never had to write a professional piece before? You cant simply state things and call them facts. You have to prove your arguement.

And as for your comment that both serve wall st is an opinion, you should look at campaign donations over the last 30 years. Or go ask around at your local Occupy before the next GA.

PS- you cant water something down that didnt have any substance to begin with.

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Fact/evidence that this watered down fin reform is a real threat to the wall st criminals:

  • the wall st/banks have been screamin against it every step of the way.,

  • and donating to Romney 5 to 1 against Obama (& all dems).

  • That repubs watered down (and glass steagal was considered and dismissed because of repub filibuster threats.)

  • The details of the bill to be worked out in committee which repubs have delayed.

  • The repubs have promised to repeal it.

  • The repubs refused to approve the head of the consumer fin protection agency (1st Elizabeth Warren then the next guy had to be appointed during congressoinal recess).

Not opinion, facts. If you want to build on this fin reform you mustrecognize that the rpubs have obstructed delayed and vowed to repeal it. Then we must vote out those pro 1% conservatives, & replace them w/ pro 99% progressives.

Agreed?

[-] 2 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 1 year ago

Ok, here are facts vs PR fluff that you got from the media:

  • Wall st screaming about it- no. All fluff. Wall St is making record profits, and eliminating competition as I showed you with good, qualified hard links.

  • Donating to Romney more than Obama- true. That is a fact.

  • Repubs watered it down- more fluff. Both parties serve Wall St, hence OWS showing up.

  • Details of bill to be worked out still- True. Due to only Repubs? Again, we all know both parties serve Wall St.

  • Repubs have promised to repeal it- True. Now will they? Congress usually doesnt repeal anything. Especially fascsist policy. Only time will tell on this one.

  • Warren approval- True.

Financial reform that is meaningful will not come from Dem and Reps. Dems wont put forth a bill with teeth. They dont work for you.

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Yeah we need additional efforts to help small banks but that issue does not change the evidence I listed that proves this watered down fin reform is clearly meaningful.

If we want stronger fin reform we must vote out the pro 1% conservatives.

[-] 1 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 1 year ago

Meaningful? All the same shit is still happening, and the fascist aspect of it is ramping up (gov and corp partnering up to limit choices and dominate the marketplace).

[-] 0 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Repubs did water it down. And it did have more substance. We will get more substance when we replace the pro 1% conservatives w/ pro 99% progressives.

And the reason I question the both parties serve wall st opinion you spew is because taking money is one thing. acting for the wall st/bankers is what repubs do, and have always battled dems whenever they wanted to weaken fin regs.

So Dems take the money then attempt to push good fin reg. Repubs defeat ,watr down, delay, or promise to repeal.

These arefacts that do not require links.

It is the way it has alwys been.

I think your blanket statements are mainly meant to minimize the repub crimes against the 99%. Of course in order for repubs to successfully serve the banks there is always some dems that must betray progressive principles and vote for the bad conservative policies. But that isn't happening right now, because OWS has put the pressure on all pols

Rejoice. Change can come if we ratchet up the pressure on all pols, for progressive change.

From the Romney website-

"Make permanent, across-the-board 20 percent cut in marginal rates"

"Maintain current tax rates on interest, dividends, and capital gains"

"Eliminate taxes for taxpayers with AGI below $200,000 on interest, dividends, and capital gains"

But clearly YOU support a President who increased taxes by $500 BILLION. Can't wait until next year when all those increases hit the American public. At least the new President will be able to say he "inherited the mess" from Obama....

[-] 1 points by NVPHIL (664) 1 year ago

Of course he's cutting taxes that's what reps do. He will then run up the deficit and say we must cut social programs. Now, if the jackasses would have left the tax rate how it was before bush and not borrow money for a pointless war we wouldn't be facing the debt problem we are now.

[-] -1 points by BetsyRoss (-744) 1 year ago

Basic campaign rhetoric is not necessary to link. The basic tax plan of your candidate is well known. If you are unaware that is your misfortune.

So I guess if Romney says he supports it then you do? & if he says he doesn't then you don't?

Do you support cutting the tax rates by 20% or not?

[-] 1 points by BetsyRoss (-744) 1 year ago

Of course you can't do it. There is ZERO evidence anywhere that Romney is cutting taxes for the wealthiest by 20% and we BOTH know that. It's why you were forced to change your previous accusation/question, to cutting "income tax rates by 20%" (which is completely different than cutting taxes for the wealthiest by 20%) .

You were right on one thing, it is NEVER necessary to "link to basic campaign rhetoric" elsewhere because your reply provides a PERFECT example of the campaign rhetoric that people like you believe the rest of America is too stupid to see through. Keep it up. The more offensive and condescending your message becomes, the more people turn away from your party.
