Nice try LES but you provided nothing factual. Your inputs were nothing more than bias against the military, with a bunch of hot air.

I told you once before that the only way to get the extorted profits they've managed to gain for the past 8 years is by taxing them sense they are unwilling to pay higher wages; it's not like that can't afford it because they're sitting on 7 trillion dollars of extorted profits. Taxing them is the only way to get that money back into the economy.
The debit ceiling is going up because the ones who have been evading taxes aren't paying their fair share. Bill Clinton didn't have a problem with the debt ceiling, and even in the 90's, corporations did just fine. But when Bush took office, their pofits began to sky rocket, while the middle class either stayed the same, or declined. The only down-turn they faced was after the World Trade Center attacks, but that lasted for about 2 years, and then their profits started to sky-rocket again. Their profits have risen to a level that's never been acheived in American or World history, despite a bad economy. NOW HOW DO YOU EXPLAIN THAT? And if the wage earners were actually earning more wages, seeing that they are directly responsible for the success of a company (such as Whirlpool), then the increase of wages would mean more tax revenue for the government. Be that as it may, the minority refuse to pay their fair share, and are instead pushing the cost of government unto the middle class; the ones who barely have enough as it is.
I'll make it easy for you LES. 60% percent of the nations wealth rests on the top 1% percent. This is NOT money that they've earned; this was money they've gained over the past 30 years, which spiked even higher when George Bush took office. Now either you accept the reasons why and how they obtained this money, or your opinions aren't worth squat! If the top 1% percent would stop trying to pass legislation to extort money from the economy with their highest machine called "Wall Street", and if they would stop trying to put pressure on CEO's and Executive to obtain an annual increase of wealth, and instead allow companies to pay higher wages to its employee's, THEN the economy would turn around. The economy is based solely on the "spenders", but the "spenders" don't have enough money to spend because the cost of living is too high, thanks to the Corporations and CEO's. Take Big Oil for instance. They used middle eastern turmoil as an excuse to cut supply and drive up costs. This is nothing more than market manipulation to make a higher profit, while passing the additional cost of gasoline unto the consumer. This killed the economy, and the disposable income of the middle class kept getting weaker. We also had the huge housing bubble with bloated values on paper, with Wall Street and big banks selling these bloated values to foreign investors such as China. Well in order for banks such as Bank of America to make a profit, along with China, they had to raise interest rates. So you have two major financial entities trying to make profit off of one sale; a single home, for instance. And who ends up paying for this? THE CONSUMER! President Obama, in 2008, passed legislation to put an end to this kind of consumer scamming. He stopped the non-sense with high interest rates on bloated home values, and the credit card scams where a persons interest rate could be raised without justification. So the Banks, like BoA, decided to try another way; debit card fees, and that too has failed, thanks to the power of the majority; the ones you seem to hate.
The point is quite simple. The top 1% percent have not obtained their wealth through hard work or labor. They've relied on crooked Politicians and other tactics to EXTORT, PLUNDER, AND STEAL money from the public. Perhaps you're one of those thieves LES.
And for the last time, I'd ask that you stop insulting the men and women who serve in the armed forces. I think you never joined the service because, quite frankly, you're a wimp! Soldiers died for your freedom LES, and if you can't appreciate that, then you might as well leave this country because you sir, do not deserve the freedoms that others have paid the price for. If you're rich, and you've EARNED your money from hard work, then great. Pay your fair share of taxes and support our government programs of which we need. We need firemen, policemen, teachers, service men/women, guardsmen, department of transporation and motorvehicle, etc. Without those very important services, then our society could not afford school, drive a car, drive on anything, fight fires, fight terrorism, fight wars, etc. etc. But if you're poor like me, then don't be dooped or fooled by the lies of the Republicans. Now you have a right to dislike Ed Schultz. But without factual reasons to disprove his report, then as I've stated, you are nothing more than hot air. And judging by the way you bash the military, or the Democrats, and instead side with the very ones who causd us to go to war in the first place (Republicans), then you sir deserve your condemnation.
Have a nice day LES.

Israel is more than just a race; it is more than just a nation; it is the people of God, from faith, by faith, and only faith. Those who assemble in the name of Christ Jesus, embrance Israel because they are Israel
