Serious question: Do you honestly believe what you just wrote? Do you think that the president has some sort of control over the stock market? Does it really make more sense to you that the president has some sort of button to "fix the market", or does it sound more plausible that due to multiple rounds of injecting created money into the financial system, the federal reserve has shocked the market to float along at stasis levels for the last few years, delaying but exacerbating our eventual day of reckoning a bit longer?
Honestly, which one makes more sense? Magic presidential financial button, or large central bank manipulation.
failen showing his utter lack of reading comprehension skills, again.
Go ahead and explain how Harry Reid is any different than McConnell? Because McConnell did it first right?
Logic malfunction by failen. Again.
Well.....I guessed you've missed Obama's point in the election. Those spending cuts will come on the backs of middle class taxpayer's (and the poor).....that's a given. Why should they be the one's to have to bear all the burden?? You need a balanced approach.
There needs to be more sacrifice. Start with the rich first, then, you ask the middle/lower classes to give more. Don't start by going after middle/lower class people first.
You are aware that Obama is planning on raising taxes on the middle class next year, right?
You mean by letting dubya's tax cuts expire? Yeah, we already know that and it's no big deal. Needs to be done.
2008 Obama campaigned saying he'd do that 4 years ago. Now I'm not saying he's a liar, perhaps he was just such a neophyte that once elected his advisors told him how stupid it would be to raise taxes.
in any event, what Obama promises and delivers is never in line. The lone exception was Obamacare, though he claims that will lower the cost of insurance. Again, either a lie, or he's truly incompetent.
The repubs threw a huge hissy fit when Obama was going to let the cuts expire and demanded their extension. Or have you forgotten that? Obama gave in and extended them, but there isn't any reason to do so again.
The ACA will lower insurance rates when it takes full effect. But I will agree that in the meantime insurance companies are sticking it to everyone as long as they can.
Ah, so the Democrat controlled White House, Senate and House gave in to a hissy fit, rather than keep one of the main tenets of the Obama campaign. How nice of them.
What other votes that Democrats made or didn't make the fault of Republicans?
Thanks for admitting that repub obstructionism in the Senate is solely responsible for all the problems and lack of progress by the Congress. I didn't think you had the guts to admit it.
Wow. Just Wow.
It isn't black and white as you paint it. I was not insinuating that i thought the president is alone responsible for fixing the market, nor do I think the explaination you give rings true while we wait for our day of reckoning.
In fact, I think you missed the entire purpose of my post. Let me break it down for you.
Zonk: Spouts off conservative drivel that fits his agenda
Me: spout off democratic drivel that fits my agenda while pointing out preposterous nature of having such an argument because it goes both ways
You: miss the point and choose to argue against my 'fact'.
Who blamed the recession on Obama?
I'm a CPA. This is news to me.......what taxes would those be??
You missed the obvious point entirely.
You blame Republicans for Obama not being able to get Democrats to vote with him. Obama didn't need a single Republican vote. Obama's problem is he can't get enough Democrats to vote with him...on budgetary issues, he can't get even a SINGLE Democrat vote.
That's why nearly 10 million 2008 Obama voters either stayed home or voted for someone else this time around. They expected Obama to do what he campaigned to do, not adopt Bush tax cuts, and then create the 3rd largest unfunded entitlement program in the history of the world.
So what taxes is he planning to raise??
Considering I have to read about this stuff daily, it would be great to know......
He's trying to extend the Bush Tax cuts for anybody making under 200 Single/250 Married. Is that a tax increase?? Uh, no.
Payroll tax they'd like to extend......but with the deficit, you have to start somewhere. This was only supposed to be temporary, and will likely die after 2012.
So, where is the middle class tax increase again?
Wait and see.
Even LoneWolf is back and surprise he is in a bitchy mood...those folks can continue to root for America to fail all they want...the rest of us will be moving forward with the recovery while watching the party of spoiled brats sink further towards irrelevance.
I'm reading the tea leaves in his decision to only raise them for one year, a decision that coincided with an election year

Really? I came here to watch you guys gloat. I am having fun!
this won't affect him, he's more worried about the earned income credit.
I think we should take some of these people, and send 'em up to Bear Mountain for a picnic.
this is what CBS has to say, take it for what it's worth. she's a CFP, so I guess you guys can have a pissing match over whose acronym carries more weight in terms of reading the tea leaves around tax regulation.
Now that the president has won reelection, will your tax bill go up, down or stay the same?
The one missing the point is you kid. The repubs in the Senate stopped everything Obama proposed from coming to a vote by abusing the filibuster. That's why your lie about Obama having a majority of dems thus he could pass anything he wanted, is just that, a lie. When no vote is possible, how does anything get done?
