    And he's not alone! Anyone with a lick of common sense that's had to deal with their own real life budgets will tell you having more disposal cash is better than having greater unpaid dept! Its shocking this country's supposed best and brightest (Obama) can't figure this out!

      That's a tough question to answer. But anyway, because corporations are hiring lobyists to advise our elected officials, and those corporations are right now dumping money into Washington throuigh the practice of cmapaign contributions, it seems that the taxes on those corporations must be too low, and the government needs to hire more people to do the job that is now being done by the lobbyists. When corporate America pays an army of lobbyists to tell our elected officials that their taxes are too high, it is verty hard to belive them.

        It's not just corporations that have lobbies, here are a couple of grass roots lobbies telling Washington that same thing!

        By the way, who do you think pays corporate taxes? You do! It's in the prices of the goods they sell, so they are in a way looking out for you too!

      ...and how has Boner voted with regards to adding to the deficit? Have you even looked that up? It isn't good...let's see if you will put forth effort towards actually seeking something real. I seriously doubt it.

    Chalk up one more false OP.

    Read what Bernake said. There was not one WORD about spending cuts. NOT ONE WORD!!!

    Bernake  said the deficit was a bad idea, and everyone agrees with that. But the best fix for the deficit is to raise taxes on the cats who have been getting a free ride.

      You mean like those that get a "refund" of twice (or more) what they paid in?  Via such things as "earned income" and college tax credits?

        I was thinking of corporate welfare like farm subsidies that insurance companies collect and welfare for  oil companies and tax rates for billionaires that are HALF what a working professional pays.
