    "This week, President Obama will unveil a plan to reduce the nation’s debt that includes tax increases on the rich and spending reductions. He will push for savings in Medicare and Medicaid while rolling back the Bush tax cuts for the rich. Obama will look for cuts in “all corners of government,” according to senior adviser David Plouffe."

    Ryan's budget makes the Bush tax cuts permanent, and lowers the tax rate for the Uberrich.....

    This should be fun.

    Chris: Team Obama!!

    The one that makes me laugh is this :"Lowering taxes creates jobs".

    ahahaha---that one is 10 yrs old.

    So Billy---Can I put you down for Team Ryan?

    Let's see, how many jobs were created under Reagan, during the longest period of peacetime prosperity in recent history?  And what did Reagan do?  He cut taxes.  Kinda like JFK, a (gasp!) Democrat.....

      Maybe 30 years ago lowering taxes creates jobs, but these days, the companies take the tax break for a few years, don't hire anyone, divest their operation in the U.S. and set up shop in china, so they get the tax break and lower wages all around.  Win for the company, lose for the U.S.

      Like trump said, every product coming to our shores should have a tariff or tax.

        And what has Obama done?

        The selective outrage evidenced in these forums is amazing....

            Yeah, he has done a lot if you're part of the moocher class that looks to government as the answer to all their problems.....

              You speak as if there are only two kinds of Americans: the incredibly wealthy and the "moochers".

                Not necessarily wealthy, but certainly those of us who believe in taking some measure of responsibility for our lives as opposed to others (such as LMC) who believe they are entitled to a portion of our lives that they have not earned....

      Billy. I believe Clinton gets the credit for the largest, peace time expansion.

          Liberal, conservative or otherwise - it's not a political opinion, it's an historical fact.

            Historical fact depending on what site you read.  Not to diminish Clinton's accomplishments in any way, but he was no Reagan.....

      Peacetime? Are you freaking kidding me? Dude, spend 3 minutes and look that up again. Don't be a lazy mouthpiece. Go look that one up man. WAAAAY wrong.

      By the way - Reagan raised taxes 3 times after his initial tax cut. Your entire point was, how we say...."lawyered."
