In Reply to: It's impossible to deny we have debt and deficit, but... posted by Queen of my Castle on August 10, 2010 at 6:55 am:

it's funny how much you railed against it so many years ago when it was a Republican in office. Now we hear barely a whimper from you about it. Please think this over carefully and let me know your answer: Do you want me to post a lot or do you not want me to post a lot? I get in trouble either way, evidently - this being an example of being in trouble for actually NOT posting. Sheesh, please make a final decision and let me know, ok?

As far as the deficit goes, we've had this discussion many times over, Queen. I ALWAYS care about the deficit and check the Deficit Clock webpage religiously. The difference I see in the debt accumulated by Bush and Obama is this: Bush gave money to the rich with no strings....there should be strings and Obama attaches them. I see Obama's spending creating jobs, I saw Bush's losing them. The question isn't just "do they spend money" - the question is "what does that money accomplish?" If it went to the top 1%, Bush and Reps didn't care if it was borrowed from China in order to spend it and they didn't care if it was invested back into the system. I do care.

Letting the Bush tax cuts expire was a compromise made with the Democrats so it would pass. Oh, so it was a dirty political trick, eh? Dems didn't want it to pass and neither did I. It added to the deficit without anything in return.

The Republican plan is for them to expire? Uh.. no. The Republicans want to KEEP the tax rates
low. It's the Dems who want them to go. For those making over $250,000, yes. And, rightfully so. As I said, they will still be paying less than they were during Reagan's years.

Reagan LOWERED taxes from what they had been under Carter. Yes, the deficit went up, due partly to the Democratic congres Reagan had to cow-tow to to get anything passed. If he wanted more military spending to win the arms race against the Soviet Unions, the Democrats packed his proposals with pork. Spending is what runs up the deficit. Not tax cuts. You might want to consult Boehner - he and other Reps disagree with you. ****Please explain how they don't run up the deficit when they have to be borrowed. ****

Who's to decide who "needs a tax cut"? Why does the Government get to tell me how much money I'm allowed to make? Mr. Obama--who is a millionaire--commented that he thinks that at some point a person makes enough, and that's his philosophy to take what he thinks is above his idea of "enough" to give to people who would like a JOB-- not a hand-out. Take from the wealthy and give to the poor. That makes no sense. When was the last time a poor person gave you a job? Your assessment is false. If/when you get the facts straight, ask again. Thanks. :)

Corporations--even those who outsource jobs-- have headquarters and have jobs and contribute to the economy in America. And not only to the employment of American people, but they also contribute untolled funds to local foundations and charities which help the poor more effectively than the Government can or ever will. And THOSE are the people Liberals would seek to demonize and punish. :( I don't think data supports your claim. Anyway, once again, we currently have a system in place and it needs to be sustained until/unless other plans are in place. This is, again, where you seem to simply want to defund things without concern for the replacement system. There's no way to discuss it fully when that disconnect is there. "Liberals" don't demonize -- they are demonized by the likes of Limbaugh, Beck, Cindy, etc.
