Well she didn't do a very good job other than take a shot at FOX. And BTW thanks for the 50b of our own money, so the state can piss it away.

The great think about conservatives in groups is you can really see the strong Christian background of so many of their rank. I mean, they really are such a testement to Christ's love.

Well, I would think that her job is to report on the protest. Interview some folks without interjecting her own belief system...And evidently she is too retarded to understand that the money going back to that gentleman's state was indeed TAX money.

I love it, we're in the middle of a media ratings war that because of the stupidity of both sides of our political spectrum has spread into a political war.

I'm not really sure what kind of substance these protests have. I'm referring to the basic principal behind their organization which is "no new taxes". Although Obama's budget is still in House comittees being revised, I've read it and for 98% of us making below 150K and 90% of us making between 150-250K (I'm talking about joint returns here), we will not see any income tax increases. Plus the estate (death) tax exemption is to stay at 3.5 million (it was only 650K ten years ago). Plus the tax increases for the wealthy are only going up to the Bill Clinton rates which is only 3-5% higher than now. And none of this is supposed to start until 2011.

Granted, Congress can change this plan but the rumblings seem to be that they want to cut some his spending plans (like universal healthcare) and not increase taxes more.

I've got plenty of issues and concerns with our all Dem controlled gvt. on the federal and state level but people really need to educate themselves before protesting.

Will your taxes increase or decrease when Obama/democrats allow the Bush tax cut to expire?
