How We Got To The Debt Ceiling

How We Got To The Debt Ceiling

Republicans try to blame Obama for increasing the National Debt, even though it’s only gone up 25% since he was in office, and it went up 75% under Bush, with Republican support. They also fail to mention that 95% of Obama’s budget deficit is carryover spending from the Bush Administration’s policies.

Reagan, Tax Cuts, and GDP

Reagan, Tax Cuts, and GDP

In honor of the 100th anniversary of President Reagan’s birth this year, lets take a look at the effect of his tax cuts for the top marginal rate. When we looked at the course of the past 80 years as a set, it looks as if there isn’t a particularly clear correlation between top marginal tax rates and GDP growth.

Tax Rates and GDP Growth

Tax Rates and GDP Growth

Let’s see whether we can prove that higher taxes are bad for the economy by charting the top marginal tax rate versus the % growth in GDP for each year. If higher taxes stifle the economy, we should see an increase in growth each time we lower tax rates. And likewise, if the theory holds, we’ll see a drop in growth each time we increase the tax rate. Does that pan out?

The ‘Right’ Is Usually Wrong

The ‘Right’ Is Usually Wrong

There is a commonly held belief that we should be accepting of views from the left and the right wing, and assume that everyone is entitled to his or her opinion. We live, after all, in a country that embraces the concept of free speech. Therefore even people in the KKK have a right to say their piece, no matter how abhorrent their viewpoint might be.

This Entire Debt Limit Discussion Is Outrageous!

A chart showing the number of Republicans who voted to raise the debt ceiling, under a Republican President.

From 2002-2009, Republicans in the House and Senate voted to raise the United States debt ceiling 7 times under George W. Bush, a Republican president. They raised the debt ceiling with no worries, no concern, no filibusters, no problems, no mentions of ‘children and grandchildren’, or any of this right-wing rhetoric we seem to hear spewed every day from the Republicans here in the year 2011.

Republicans Claim To Be The ‘Job Creators’ And That The Wealthy Already Pay Too Much

Republicans Claim To Be The ‘Job Creators’ And That The Wealthy Already Pay Too Much

This is very interesting considering they have not brought one single piece of legislation to the floor of Congress that will help “create jobs”, and they’ve denied every Democratic bill that has come before them. How do they plan on creating more jobs? With the same failed tax policies that have been diminishing our economy since they began 30 years ago?

Are You Better Off Now Than You Were Two Years Ago?

Are You Better Off Now Than You Were Two Years Ago?

The Republican Party has drawn their line in the sand; they flatly refuse to raise taxes on the wealthy. Their argument is that higher taxes kills job creation. Proponents phrase this as, ‘lower taxes creates jobs’ and ‘we cannot tax the job creators’. This is a circular logic, which is not substantiated by evidence.

Is Obama A Muslim (And Does It Matter)?

First of all I would like to say that no, it doesn’t matter. UNLESS you don’t care about the constitution. In Article VI of the Constitution it states ‘no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.’

Why Is Welfare Okay?

Why Is Welfare Okay?

We’ve all heard the stereotype, the octomoms of this world, milking the system taking those welfare checks, taking our hard earned tax dollars and living the high life while we all have to work for a living. The reality, for most people on welfare, is that life is extremely hard. It means living in a poor neighborhood, going without, buying the cheap food with food stamps, boredom, discrimination, depression, and often poor health. It isn’t some free ride, it isn’t easy street, it just plain sucks.
