    @Cathy

    you’re kinda wrong. President Obama is proposing exactly what the Republicans wanted in the Bowles-Simpson plan. Republicans are just being held hostage by the tea party….Republicans don’t want to put forth a detailed plan, because they don’t want to be the ones to say they proposed cuts to social security & Medicare, which they desperately want but are scared to say it publicly. All democrars are saying is “put forth your plan, what loop-holes do you want to close? what “entitlement” program’s do you want to cut?” Republicans are trying to make dems have the blood on their hands. Even Fox news admitted that. The Republican Speaker can’t even reel in his own members. Until the Republican infighting stops. no deal

  • beedavisjr

    Sorry for my typos. *walking while typing*

    TZ–the “rapid growth” was nothing more than smoke and mirrors of real estate and bank fraud–which blew up in everyon’e face. Regulations have NOTHING to do with anything unless you want to do away with clean air and water regs and Wall Street regs. Again, the key thing that companies look for in hiring and expanding plants is consumers willing to buy their products–THAT is the return on investment they are looking for…and nothing else.

  • TZCA

    It should also be noted that the biggest reason the growth of 2002 – 2005 became a bubble is government intrusion on free market principles, requiring government backed securities as collateral against sub prime loans to ensure every American is guranteed the ‘right’ to home ownership. This created larger than sustainable demand, and created underserving opportunity for investors to get rich quick on derivative swaps against these securities. The brilliance of government. And you liberals want more of it.

  • TZCA

    usa8888 says: “the “rapid growth” was nothing more than smoke and mirrors of real estate and bank fraud–which blew up in everyon’e face.”

    Agreed, but again these bank frauds were supported by government backed securities.

  • usa8888

    Exactly right, BEED. Boehner is afraid for his job–the right wing radicals in the House will can him if he goes in the correct direction–the one the American people want!!!!!!

  • usa8888

    TZ–The were aided and abetted by crooked banks all the way. If guns are available, does that mean that you have to use one to rob a bank????

  • TZCA

    usa8888 says “Regulations have NOTHING to do with anything unless you want to do away with clean air and water regs and Wall Street regs”

    There are more to regulations than environmental protections against ‘dirty air’ and ‘dirty water’.

    There are building permit fees, engineering evaluation fees for re-approval on pre-approved plans that exceed 3 years without development, environmental impact reports for pre-existing structures. This list goes on and on.

  • beedavisjr

    @TZCA No im pretty sure a lot if had to do with going into Wars we couldn’t pay for(about 5 trillion+ $) when we’re are all said & done after we leave Afghanistan (hopefully in 2013-14)

  • usa8888

    The KEY problem in the US is the recessionary economic atmosphere. Drastically cutting spending will only make things worse. In the longer run, cutting spending is very important, but first get the economy humming again.

  • TZCA

    usa8888 says: “If guns are available, does that mean that you have to use one to rob a bank????”

    I don’t understand your correlation.

    A bank, big bank, little bank, mom and pop credit union, etc, is like any business, and they are in business for profit. Government says “make loans available for everybody.” Banks say “there is too much risk to make loans available for everybody, losses may exceed profit.” Government says, “we will offer securities as collatoral against sub-prime loans.” Bank say, “dang, too good to be true. OK, we’ll provide the loans, you secure them.” The banks offer loans to people who shouldn’t qualify. Demand increases, more houses are built. Everything is good for awhile. Investors decide to make even more money by trading by speculating on the marginal changes in the value of these securities. No law against this (and there still isn’t, only controls on it). Then people who weren’t qualified to begin with start to default. Oh crap, now the principle balances for amounts owned on these overpriced estates need to be realized with real money. The government secured the principle but doesn’t have the actual money to back it and so needs to borrow more to do so. The derivatives tumble in value, and the whole house of cards crumbles.

    ——————————
    I am amused that you believe that middle taxes are not going to be affected by Obama’s plan. This is where I want to step back, protect my little wealth as much as possible, and watch all of you liberals scratch your head as you go through your paychecks wondering where your money has gone.
    ——————————-
    The more money that gets in the middle classes hands means more money being spent on products, which means stores have to hire more people to sell the products and companies have to hire people to build those products. The idea that rich people who own business are job creators is ridiculous, simple fact is they aren’t going to hire anybody unless the market(ie people going out and buying their products or services) forces them to hire more people. A tax break to a so called job creator basically means they will just take whatever lump sum they get and put it in a bank and let the money rot(ie it’s not like they are going to get 100k extra back in taxes and say hey why don’t i go out and hire 2 more people now that I have an extra 100k to blow).

  • TZCA

    beedavisjr says: No im pretty sure a lot if had to do with going into Wars we couldn’t pay for(about 5 trillion+ $) when we’re are all said & done after we leave Afghanistan (hopefully in 2013-14).

    Considering Bush took office with $5.6 trillion debt and left office with $10 trillion debt, the total debt accrued is $4.4 trillion. This includes ALL spending, including the wars. I am no fan of these wars. I am no fan of Bush (a big government semi-liberal in conservative clothing). But the spending on the wars is not what caused the late-2007 collapse.

  • TZCA

    usa8888 says: “In the longer run, cutting spending is very important, but first get the economy humming again.”

    I’m glad that you said that.

  • TZCA

    @Mark

    There are two factors to consider:

    (1) Money in the pocket of the business owner does not guaranty that the business owner will hire. I agree with you there. There has to be a need to grow, and the growth requires demand. I agree with you there. Where I disagree with you is that if you take the money away from the business owner, then you’ve guaranteed that the business owner doesn’t have that money and he/she will definately not be hiring unless there is unrealistic growth in that demand. The irony of it all is that in the days of much higher taxes on the so-called rich, there were many ways for the rich (business owners?) to shelter their money. They will find ways again.

    (2) Opposed to what othersin here seem to say, the present regulatory environment and overwhelming sense of uncertainty (both from the regulations, costs, and lack of demand for product), are the biggest forces against hiring, thus skewing the value of the power of lower taxes.

  • cathy

    us8888 the reps have agreed to increase taxes. They want to see the spending cuts and they want Obama to remove his request for a unlimited debt ceiling.

    For once they are doing what they believe is right for the country and they don’t care if they are blamed for increase taxes on everyone. You are insane if you think the should let Obama have unlimited spending even if every person in the U.S. wants that to happen. Which I don’t believe that anyone wants any president to have the ability to spend without limits.

  • Mark

    @TZCA

    If the demand for whatever service a business owner provides is X amount of people, they will hire X amount of people(and not one more) no matter what the tax rate is. I am guessing you might make an argument that there is a very small amount of businesses that might be effected by losing the slightest amount of dollars but chances are those business that have to watch every dollar to stay afloat aren’t making more then 250K(where the increase taxes kick in)

    The only other argument I could see against increasing taxes(on people who make between say 250k-1M who own a business) is that it sort of makes people think twice about taking a chance. Personally I am all for giving truly small businesses making under 1M an extra tax break for that reason, but I don’t consider a business that employs 100 people but makes millions(or even hundreds of millions) a “small business” that needs that help.

  • cathy

    @beedavisjr Where did you get your information? Was it Rachel? She and other dems have said that. But the White House press sect. said that there will be no plan without an unlimited debt ceiling. I have not seen a plan from Obama that didn’t have this unlimited debt ceiling in it. Do you have a link to Obama’s offer?
    The republicans did put together a plan that said they planned to make cuts to SS and medicare. No one on either side has put together a detailed plan.

  • Mark

    affected not effected..

  • beedavisjr

    @Cathy

    I think you’re watching too much Fox. I don’t watch MSNBC that much or Fox. I stick to The Guardian & The Onion. Ya know, actual news reporting. The president has just been calling every Republican bluff. Nobody believes he’ll get the unlimited debt ceiling. Republicans always use the debt ceiling as Political leverage EVERY YEAR, dems for once got their balls back & call Republican bluffs. (Senator Filibustering himself!). the truth is none of us know what’s going in the plan. cuts here & there but what we know for sure!! the country wants those rates to go up on wealthy. which I believe will not the Clinton. rates, along with spending cuts to Medicare. It’s just refreshing seeing dems grow a back bone for once. we’ll see a deal. this is all political grandstanding for the base.
