Liberals keep making the same arguments over and over. The Bush tax cuts were bad, they dont stimulate the economy, and the FED need more money so we can spend more. OK, you win....so let them all expire. The economy should improve right?

Democrats are evil, envious fools by nature. They don't care about the middle class, they want anyone who makes more than they do to pay most of their tax burden.

And let the AMT not get an emergency fix.

Then the government will get more money and can fund more unemployment which in turn will create more jobs. Unemployment creates jobs per Pelosi.

So if the entire country goes on unemployment think of all the jobs that will get created .....

We are going to see just what the democrats in congress really feel about the American people.

Simply put, they do not care about you one bit.

Since the dems have had 2 recessions in 4 years I can see unemployment hitting 12% or higher if these cuts expire and many more people losing their homes, cars etc.

We already have record foreclosures, bankruptcies and car repos on the dems watch, watch them rise quickly if this happens.

I agree, let them all expire. Nobody said the economy would improve if that happened, but rather address out debt/deficits.

The Dems already put up a tax cut for 98% of America, and your pals voted that one down. THAT'S how much the GOP care.

Yea, that's a sound and rational argument. Shall I also assume all Republicans think just like you?

Not if the government bureaucracies are not reigned in as to make manufacturing on the large scale possible again in this country. We need manufacturing jobs if 8 million + people are to be re-employed within our shores. That is, unless folks want 10% unemployment to become the new "norm".

When 47 % of the population pays $0 taxes, it's time for the tax cuts to expire. thank goodness that I can itemize a lot of deductions so that the gov't doesn't 100% skrew me over. All of those families with the kids ($1000 deductions) need to start paying up.

So the Dems only care about 98% of the US citizens? That's nice to know, I guess caring about everyone is too hard for liberals. You can assume whatever you like, you seem to be quite talented at screwing it up already since I'm not a Republican and I think many of them are as ignorant as your Democrat friends are.

If they used that money to address our deficits than that would be great, but do you think they would actually do that?
