Democrats Were Against The Bush Middle Class Tax Cuts Before They Were For Them

M2RB:  Garbage

You pretend you're anything just to be adored
And what you need is what you get

Don't believe in fear
Don't believe in faith
Don't believe in anything
That you can't break

A million lies to sell yourself  is all you ever had
Don't believe in love
Don't believe in hate
Don't believe in anything
That you can't waste

 Don't believe in anyone that you can't tame
You stupid pol
You stupid pol
Can't believe you fake it


"Its (sic) always amazing to see how relentless poor uneducated white conservatives are willing to fight and protect tax cuts that have nothing to do with them ... Sometimes I think these folks have been brainwashed to the extent that they will rather see the rich get all the tax cuts they want even if their taxes will be raised to pay for it. Very strange."

First, taketh thee immediately to the nearest grammar and punctuation trauma centre.  For an, evidently, rich, educated, person of colour Progressive, your writing makes my hair hurt.

Secondly, I doubt very seriously that you are affected by tax rates one way or another, which is why you are unconcerned about how much fruit of another's labour the government takes.

Thirdly, I am willing to bet that you were AGAINST the Bush Tax Cuts when they were passed even though the vast majority went to the middle class and the poor.  3 million working-class Americans were relieved completely of their "patriotic duty" to pay Federal income taxes and the percentage share of taxes paid by the wealthy actually increased, as did revenues to the Treasury.  I know for a FACT that you called the Bush tax cuts the "Bush tax cuts for the rich."  OK, genius, if they were only for the rich, why are Democrats claiming that their expiration will be the largest tax increase on the middle class in history?  If they were only for the rich, why (per the White House) would extending all of them "cost" $3.7 trillion over a decade, but ending the tax cuts on the 'evil rich' only raise ~$800 billion in "revenues," ceterus paribus?  I also know for a FACT that you have claimed ever since the "Bush tax cuts for the rich" were passed that they were "not paid for," which is an asinine statement, but we'll save the debate on your economic asshattery for another day.  Yet, if the Bush tax cuts were not just for the 'evil rich,' as is evident by the frantic attempt to prevent their expiration for 98% of Americans and they were "not paid for," how is Mr Obama planning to pay for them under his extension?  Huh?  Huh?

Finally, the only things that I hate more than weak and whiny men are hypocrites.  Unfortunately, you are both...and you have a lot of company.

DEMOCRATS: AGAINST tax cuts for the middle class before they were FOR them.

Hey, Repubics!  It wouldn't hurt you to REMEMBER this either, ya know???  And, you idiots wonder why I will never join the Stupid Party???  Ben Stein, please, substitute, Boehner for Bueller.  Please, please, please, with sugar on top...and chocolate sprinkles...and marshmallows...and pistachios...and Oreo crumbles...and chocolate chunks...and Reese's Pieces...and walnuts...and M&Ms...and chocolate whipped cream...and Irish coffee-flavoured whipped cream...and a, make that three cherries!

 Boehner? Boehner? Boehner?


“I hope a tax will be preferred [to a loan which threatens to saddle us with a perpetual debt], because it will awaken the attention of the people and make reformation and economy the principle of the next election. The frequent recurrence of this chastening operation can alone restrain the propensity of governments to enlarge expense beyond income.”

- Thomas Jefferson to Albert Gallatin, 1820  

"I place economy among the first and most important virtues, and public debt as the greatest of dangers to be feared. To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. If we run into such debts, we must be taxed in our meat and drink, in our necessities and in our comforts, in our labor and in our amusements. If we can prevent the government from wasting the labor of the people, under the pretense of caring for them, they will be happy." 

- Thomas Jefferson  

“The principle of spending money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large scale.” 

- Thomas Jefferson

"I think we have more machinery of government than is necessary, too many parasites living on the labor of the industrious."  

- Thomas Jefferson, Letter to William Ludlow, 6 September 1824

“To take from one, because it is thought that his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, “the guarantee to every one of a free exercise of his industry, & the fruits acquired by it.’” 

- Thomas Jefferson
