President Obama thanking his staff

34 posts in this topic

He can't. Reagan didn't raise taxes. Tip O'Neill and the Democratic Congress did. Clinton didn't lower taxes. Newt Gingrich and the Republican Congress did. Obama wants to with every fiber of his being, but his first two years he and Pelosi knew it was economic suicide and his last two years the Republican House wouldn't let him. Here's hoping they keep him in check the next four years, as well.

Well that's just untrue. Republicans controlled congress for 6 of Reagan's 8 years, and presided over several of his tax hikes. The Tax Equity Act of 82 (republican congress) that he signed increased taxes a great deal, in fact the biggest non-war increase in American history. The Tax Reform Act of 86 was Reagan's own baby, which significantly raised taxes on lower income people. Even Gingrich has said he fought against Reagan raising taxes. The dude raised them like a dozen times.

Just waiting for Meat to bitch about the deficit getting bigger under Obama's first 4 years so the level of hypocrisy can reach critical mass.

    • I don't feel like we're a sleeper team. We are just mercurial as a franchise- up, down, and in the middle. I really do not know what to expect this year. As it's been said, the O-line is a big question mark. Our interior is good, but the tackle spot is a mystery. I wasn't and am still not high on the Lil Kalil signing, and not because of the contract. He has declined every year since his rookie year. Am I suppose to believe that he has really been chronically injured this whole time and now that he is here with Ryan he is suppose to magically be healthy and perform? I'm not saying it isn't possible- I'm not saying he's def going to suck either. I just have no clue. I think it's a big time gamble from Gman. I hope it works out. And I desperately want to be proved wrong about it too. I hope he fills the hole that's been there since Gross left as a long term solution. And the other thing that worries me that is the coaching staff. Everyone talks about Shula but I'm not high on RR. He took zero accountability in his post season presser- as apposed to Gman who acknowledged his mistakes. I've never really liked him- I'm really wondering if Riverboat was just fools gold. He just feels like Fox 2.0- don't think he can't get us a Lombardi- which is sad because I feel like our roster can. Again, I hope I'm wrong about this. These two things plus our division- The NFCS will be a dogfight this year. 
    • Yeah we fell asleep..the offensive like ducked and the secondary ducked til Bradbury and the other kid stepped up.. but season was done.. need a healthy o-Lind this year and execute or these new weapons are pointless
