"My first act will be to defund Planned Parenthood"PP prevents more abortions than any unit in America.This says a lot about character and priorities in a person.heartless--mean--selfish--unamerican unlike Christ
Obama inherited a hell on earth that will take many years to overcome.#1---All Wealth-Income transferred to top 10%.That is why in OECD nations we rank #4 on Inequality--#3 As least taxed--# 3 on least tax on corporations.Since 1980, we borrowed 15,000 Billion instead of taxing wealth to pay our way.1945-1980 We taxed Wealth to pay off wwii debt.We need now to return to high tax on wealth to pay off their debt.All in Forbes 400 are billionaires.2013 budget proposes 2900B in Revenue from taxes and a 900B Deficit.2900B is a 20% Tax Rate on our entire national income.We can pay our way easily by tax on wealth.Those rich ones want to cut spending not increase taxes on them.Hit the middle class not us rich duckies.
If the people knew our true condition they would vote all Republicans out of office. Since 1980, three Republican presidents for 20 years took 600B budget to 3500B--1000B Debt to 10,000B--Surplus to 1400B Deficit--Got us involved in10 foreign conflicts--Killed S&L--Killed Local Banking ownership so today 10 own 80% of deposits in 7000 banks--Great Recession As a result of Housing disaster.Allowed building of Casino Derivative largest gambling house in world.·
TAX CUTSRepublicans slash taxes for the middle class? Like Bush Tax Cuts?Top 1% got 37.6%--Top 5% got 48.3%Bottom 60% got 16.4%. Luckie duckies?
Republicans will not be satisfied until we pass Chile and Mexico as Least taxed in oecd nations.We rank third. We take 27% of gdp in federal-state-local taxes. Rank 4th on Inequality.Top 50% take 86% of individual income. 70,000,000 get 14% yet pay full payroll tax out of measly income.
In 2011, Corporate paid 12.1% Tax Rate yet scream 35% rate is highest in world cut it cut cut it.
2013 budget calls for taxes of 2900B and borrow 900B. Dumb. Our income is 14,000B yet we borrow 900B? That is 900B the richest will keep in their pocket. Since 1980, We borrowed 15,000 Billionand did not tax enough which allowed rich to get very rich.
It will take a tax system like 1945-1980 that paid down WWII debt. It will take decades.We CAN do it. Remember the great domestic growth even with those high tax rates?We Must do it. The rich have taken us to the cleaners. War. Cut Tax. Huh?
Bush huge tax cut assisted in our debt going from 5800 to 11,900 Billion. Doubled.Clinton last budget ended 9-30-01 with 5800B of debt. Bush last budget ended 9-30-09 with 11,900B of debt.
From 1980--2009, three Republican presidents and Debt grew by 9000B. It has grownby 4100B under Obama three budgets. But! About one-third is from Bush three “New” programs. CBO study revealed that 2001-2010 Bush “new” programs created 5100B of debt.
We MUST cut spending in Defense And Medicare plus increase revenue from taxes on rich estates and incomes. Is it not sad that one family owns more wealth than 90% of families. Tax rates 1945-10980 would have prevented it. The Great middle Class needs a break. clarence swinney

As a rule, billionaires didn't become billionaires by investing in things that did not generate a good return. A good return on their money is clearly what they expect to get from Paul Ryan.
