Excuse me BUSH lied to get us into this useless war in Iraq.
BUSH is abusing his authority tossing out the Constitutionbal safeguards.
Debatable. That is for the courts to decide.
BUSH was sent the message clearly by the American People and since the Congress determine legislation, control the money and have just as much right to determine national policy.
He's still the President, and has a large say in what that national policy is because he can veto bills. Right now he's willing to sign into law the Illegal Amesty bill when it reaches his desk. in spite of every poll of the American people saying that they want the border sealed and illegal immigrants(alines) stopped from coming into the country.Foreign policy is completely his though.
Don't forget that the President sends legislation into Congress to be debated and argued over as well. The margin of control of the Senate in Democrat hands is razor thin. That does NOT give them a mandate.
And MUST I point out out country is spending more than its taking in we either must cut programs and that is not going to be easy what do we cut? Social Security Disability, money to Medicare, military we are in a state of war right now- so where?
Cut Social security then. At least for people who make opver a certain amount of money. Also cut ANY medicade/care/medical benefits for the wealthy. They don't need it. There are hundreds of earmarks, programs that can be cut or trimmed to find money.
Or you generate more revenue for the government that means taxes mostly. And the Democrats are targeting corporate tax breaks are they not and are not likely to act stupidly but with a massive national debt and still a deficite we have to act intelligently. So businesses and people may have to pay more to pay for their government that is the way things are. What you don't want to pay any taxes then how do we pay for all the programs this nation now supports from support for the needy and disabled, to veterans to all the vital services that must be funded.
Raising taxes will harm the economy. The tax cuts helped it recover from the mild recession that hit in the beginning of Bush's Presidency, and after 9-11. The amount of money coming into the Treasury has increased well beyond what came in, in the 90's. Raise taxes and the amount of money flowing into the Treasury weill slow or decline. Higher taxes harm economic growth since there is LESS money in the hands of people and corporations.
You're forgetting that currently there are more Americans in the stock market than ever before. The vast majority of senior citizens have stock.
Democrates are targetting more than corporate breaks. They are targetting corporations and wealthy people. Stock earnings, death taxes, property taxes. And thgey use the money to pay you off. By giving you benefits that most do NOT need.
Now before you blow a artery, listen for a moment. I am willing to give aid top those who truely deserve it. The elderly, disabled, vetrans, but NOT the damned healthy moochers that sit on their fat arses and hold out a hand for governmental assistance. Like the Katrina people. Any of them who are healthy and STILL living in FEMA money deserved to get kicked out on their butts or arrested. It's been over a f*cking year since Katrina. time for them to get off of their butts and do something.
People should be accountable for themselves first and not use the government unless there is real need, and I mean real need. There are too many moochers on governmental assistance.
The part in highlights is specially annoyingg. You want them to pay even more than they are because they have more? And give it to other people? They already pay more. Currently the top 25% of wealth earners pay over 88% of ALL federally collected income taxes. The top 5% pay 34% of that amont, so don't tell me that they aren't paying enough. Also. the amount of adult Americans paying income taxes is 51%. What happenes when that number drops below 50%? What's fair then? The majority voting in people who take even more money from the few who pay taxes so they can get some of the pie?
