Don’t you just love the bulls*** surrounding this from your fabulous House GOP?

The rich just put their tax cuts into their offshore coffers….we peons would simply spend it in the economy DIRECTLY. You know, minor stuff like housing, food, utilities, gasoline……..

Beener and the boys seem to have a problem with that. WHY ???

Ah yes, nothing like more deficit spending to save us from our impending debt crisis.

Well, Neworld,

How do you justify more deficit spending for continued wars, expenditures for arms that even the Pentagon doesn’t want, more tax breaks for the uber rich who are NOT creating more jobs….??

Many people working two and three part time jobs to make ends meet.

The wealthy get to write off all kinds of “investment” while some working stiff gets taxed in the next higher bracket based upon the few hundred dollars that they MAY be lucky enough to save.

Oh, yeah, all legal alright, but is it the right thing for our people?
The legal comes in when the rich are able to write the laws through influence.

Tell us again how this is a good approach.

Maybe, just maybe if the ‘entitled’ attitude of the rich changed just a little bit and they paid their proportionate share of the burden then we might not have such a debt crisis.

Damn, who’s going to do anything when the working class has finally been broken? Certainly not the priviledged class. They don’t know how to do anything but shirk any and all responsibilites and blame the greedy workers.
