If they truly wanted to equal things out they'd do away with all the tax exemptions and go with the flat tax.
    Ok, I'm stepping down from my soapbox before I get knocked off.
    Please don't step off the soapbox Brett. This forum could use some unadulterated real life facts

    Iran's nuclear program reduction through a joint effort with our allies when a year are two a go you guys wanted us to attack them...saying that is the only way

    Finally out of Afghanistan this year

    Strong stock market

    You guys that hate Obama need to pay attention, he has done his job!
    menmon,

    Unemployment Rate - U-6 rate was unchanged in December at 13.1 percent and January's numbers are not yet published...

    , this “real” unemployment figure, seasonally adjusted, includes the unemployed “plus all persons marginally attached to the labor force, plus total employed part time for economic reasons ….”The U-6 rate captures the fuller picture of people who are willing and able to work, but cannot find a job. This number is ridiculously high and no substantive improvement has been seen since Obama took office!

    The only focus on education is to do whatever it takes to keep the NEA and there members in line with the Democrats...nothing real for the kids

    Iran is laughing all the way to the bank, Obama lifts sanctions and then Iran tells the world they are continuing to develop a nuclear weapon! Or did you miss that on CNN?

    Obama promised to get us out of Afganistan this year, regardless what his generals tell him! Of course looking at the many other promises Obama has made, I would not count your chickens yet!

    Stock market has barely half as many investors in it as it did in 2008. The only reason it stays high is that the Fed's under Obama, continue to purchase 50 Billion dollars of bonds a month....this money is all dept, we have no money, your kids and Grandkids will pay for this at a later date.....Still feeling good Menmon??? I don't hate Obama, but I do hate how he is tearing down our country....

    Your the one who needs to "Pay Attention"

    I highly recommend that you not buy into the right rhetoric if you are looking for a break.

    The flat tax would be great for me, but would suck for you...so be careful what you wish for....just pay attention to who is lobbing for it and it will answer much!

    How exactly is that different from the idiot in the White House? Let's see each had at least one foreign born parent, both attended Ivy League schools (while only one may have actually attended classes), both were/are a United States Senator, both are extremely wealthy, oh wait yes they do have differing political views!

    HuntClub, dumb is dumb no way around it! I wouldn't try to reason it if I were you. You won't get anywhere! Just remember the progressives are supposed to be the smart ones! If you don't believe me just ask one. They have real high IQ's and such!

    Hunt club, Menmom knows not of what he speaks. When painted into a corner, he just disappears only to paint himself into another corner somewhere else.He means well.
