Re: “Mike Ross does it again: Sticks with rich

No. "Roland" hasn't switched IDs. He just simply issues 'ad hominem' attacks without basis.

Yep. Heritage is partisan, but look at the data. Don't just take a look at who it's from and make assumptions. I take data from all sources and consider the MERITS not just the source.

You people are so damn partisan that your logic has turned off. If it ain't the Progressive gospel then it's crap. Right??

Will ANYONE dispel the FACT that I posted...that revenue to the Treasury went UP under the Bush Presidency...and the Reagan Presidency...despite massive tax cuts. Deficits skyrocketed under both because of SPENDING, not tax cuts. Would somebody stop the 'ad hominem' BS and refute the facts, please...anyone...anyone...crickets...Bueller...............

Re: “Mike Ross does it again: Sticks with rich

Get your data right.

It is SO misleading to say that the Bush Tax cuts were responsible for the exploding deficit under his watch. It was SPENDING...not revenue that was the problem. The truth is that total IRS net receipts were $1.9T in 2000 and were $2.32T in 2008, when his terms (mercifully) ended. Fact check (http://www.irs.gov/taxstats/article/0,,id=…).

SPENDING was the problem. And you spend happy Progressives (which I count the neo-con Bush as one) are the problem. CUT GOVERNMENT SPENDING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Spending is our deficit problem -- and Obama is on a worse binge compared to the "spend like a drunken sailor" Bush. Get your facts straight before you make these arguments. As much as you people don't like the Laffer curve (http://www.heritage.org/Research/Reports/2…), which clearly shows that tax cuts INCREASE total revenue in these tax ranges, but it is REAL. As much as you people think that wealth redistribution does anything except cripple an economy, you need to get your heads on straight.

If we want increased tax revenue, then we have to decrease tax rates and grow the economy -- monetary velocity is higher in the private sector than in the public sector and there are mountains of data to support that.

STOP SPENDING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
