I agree with the article. The point is if the Bush tax cuts are NOT allowed to expire then a reduction in spending will have to take place to offset the loss of anticipated revenue. That's not too hard to understand is it? What we need are some politicians who are willing to take a stand. GO VIKINGS!!!

Ain't blowing smoke--that 'reduction in spending will be so small and "symbolic" that the deficit will be higher than it is right now.  Ain't nobody gonna make ANY hard choices.  Just a lot of "catty" remarks.

The people often forget just how good they have and what our taxes have built.  I will give you a prime example of what lower taxes can do for you at the State level. The state of GA has not raised its tax on gas since the 70s and it is stuck at 7 cents per gallon while other states in the region collect at least three times as much.  We had to robbed from Peter to pay Paul in order to maintain our highways and byways, and at one time, we have the best roads in the world, but lack of funding has cause issues such as this:

CBS Atlanta Asks GDOT Tough Questions About Clogged Interstate Storm Drains

ATLANTA -- CBS Atlanta is asking tough questions about the massive backups and flooding on the highways after Tuesday night's storms.

GDOT told us they don't have the money or resources to maintain interstate storm drains as often as they'd like.

As a result, it caused a dangerous travel situation during yesterday's heavy storms.

Traffic moved swiftly along Georgia's interstates today, but yesterday was a different story.

Calvin Cunningham said he was stuck in traffic for nearly two hours at Spaghetti Junction after heavy rain and debris clogged storm drains and caused the interstate to flood.

"It was total chaos considering the water overflowed and cars were stuck back to back and some cars flooded out," said driver Calvin Cunningham.

The flooding happened at the ramp from 85 South to 285 west, but it was not the only trouble spot.

The road was completely flooded under an overpass near Spring Street in Atlanta.

I work near street and I can tell the surface street were packed.  I am so glad that i take transit because I often go that way when i do drive in.

In California the gas tax is over 50 cents a gallon. We have some of the worst roads in the country. The local counties have had taxes passed to take care of their roads because the state is so screwed up they used the gas tax money to pay for union pensions and other unfunded obligations.If the feds don't do something soon the whole country will be going down the same road as California. GO VIKINGS!!!

The irony of it all.  It seems everyone wants to yell cut taxes, but they are all for sneaky gas taxes, sin taxes, and user fees.  When a tax not a tax?  The gov't need $$$$$$$$$$ to provide the goods and services that we have come to depend on and we have some fools that get rid of it all together.  I guess we will turn in to the wild wild west again. Let us ask the people how was life before we got big Gov't?  What happened if you put your money in the bank and it was robbed?  How save was your food?  What happened to older folks who could not work?

You know it is funny, but greatest economic boom in American history as far as growth, jobs and employment are concerned is when the top tax rate was 70%.

An during the clinton era his high tax rates brought an economic boom to America, but with George Bush's tax cuts no new  jobs were created

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
