Yes, tax cuts for the rich. Always a good idea. As are corporate junkets for the rich. bonus packages for the rich....


Didn't see any of that ....

The point, too, was that someone is making suggestions, rather than simply criticizing. Didn't say you have to agree with them ... or that I agree with all of them.

I guess, if making the same suggestions that got us into massive deficit spending the first time around make sense.

Even better. People will have to go to the local store to buy something. That helps Walmart.


And J/K btw. :)

Maybe she was talking about all the people around the world who work and make products for American Companies. Or there are a lot more immigrants in this country than they are telling us.

I don't think that. I've already said that I was on the fence on this stuff and do not know anything about macroeconomics. I can tell you that cutting taxes, raising spending and fighting a war at the same time does not work. I can also tell you that the idea of tax breaks for the rich so we all somehow benefit sounds like a good deal - if you are rich.
