All I have to say is: http://www.treasury.gov/resource-center/tax-policy/Documents/capgain1-2008b.pdf

Increased capital gains tax will decrease revenue generated for the government. Been proven time and time again. Its paradoxical yes, but nothing new. Well new if you are in the 95% of people I do not think should be allowed to vote, but for everyone else......

Etrade is the equivalent of letting dumb people vote. People woke up and saw bill passed and ran out peckers in hand. Had they read they actually just agreed to kick it down the road, AGAIN, they would know better. That on top of you need to make 8% more today than you did this time last week just to break even, and in 9 weeks the number could be more like 18%. I paid my salary for the entire year on the 31st. Hopefully I do better with budget than gov. Other wise I may have to move someone in again and put them on pay roll :lol:

If I were Romney I probably wouldn't attend either. All that money spent on a massive party? Even if it came from corporate donations aren't there better ways to spend the money? When my family experiences tight times we tighten the purse strings and spend on necessary items.

I'm all for government spending but I'd be more impressed with a more intelligent gesture that encouraged people to think about our responsibility to fix the economic issues.

I don't think it would have been any different if Romney had won.

yeah i agree,

my wife said the same thing about all the money spent could of gone to education, poor etc. I do believe the inag is somewhat good for the country and helps build Nationalism, and says lets put all this bickering aside for awhile. I think this was a little toned down being a second go. Being a holiday, those Fers woudln't really have been working anyway, but get back to work in the CONGRESS and not at home raising money.

i guess i'm on a watch list now. i sent off a shit eating letter to my governor the other day lol.

It probably wouldn't have been different if it was Romney and that actually was my point. I'm not being partisan here. I'm saying if the household is broke and on hard times, then using money more productively and not partying like it's 1999 is called for. Be an Ant and not a Grasshopper. The fact that he barely mentioned anything concerning the current state of the economy in his speech speaks volumes.

You're overly optimistic if you ask me. We're past the point of subtleties - if they want to solve our budgetary issues it's time to "Have the talk."

don't even get me started:

President Barack Obama has himself to blame for the sequester stalemate, Mitt Romney told Fox News in his first major interview since losing the 2012 presidential race.

That's not what he said Mike. What he did was respond to a question about Obama has handled the Sequester and Romney is absolutely right that Obama is doing what he knows how to do best: campaign - when what is called for is lots of phone calls and closed door negotiations.

You'll note he doesn't point at the Republicans because that wasn't the question and Wallace was too softball to ask the follow-up.

WALLACE: So let me ask you specifically, how do you think the president has handled the sequester, the $85 billion in automatic spending cuts?

MITT ROMNEY: Well, no one can think that that's been a success for the president. He didn't think the sequester would happen. It is happening. To date, what we've seen is a -- the president out campaigning to the American people, doing rallies around the country, flying around the country and berating Republicans and blaming and pointing.

Now, what does that do?

That causes the Republicans to retrench and then put up a wall and to fight back. It's a very natural human emotion.

You know, when I was elected governor of my state, I had a legislature 87 percent Democrat. It was not lost on me that to get anything done, I couldn't be attacking them. I had to find ways to reach out to them.

The president has the opportunity to lead the nation and to bring Republicans and Democrats together. It's a job he's got to do and it's a job only the president can do."

I knew it would happen and I am sure the President did also. No one in congress seemed all that motivated to do anything about it but bitch to the press like they have done for years. John Boehner tells the Senate to get off the asses and do something, but the GOP filibustered every time a plan was set to go to vote, so nothing happened. They still won't work together, so nothing is going to get done.

The cuts make the GOP look bad, even though it is everyones fault.
