No one here labeled either side Treasonous
We said that the Republicans in Congress are Treasonous.

They are not upholding their oath to the American Constitution, they are not helping out the jobless, the economy or anything except themselves, and their campagin donors

Eric Cantor had money invested in a hedge fund that would make him rich if the Dollar fell, at the same time he was voting against raising the debt ceiling, they were going to shut the Gov. down, and make big bucks!

Ron:
edit: FOr the record, im a registered Independent American. If we had a realistic chance i would vote that way.

Better to vote for what you want and not get it, than to vote for what you don't want and get it.

"Hedge, all i know is that if I were president, and the ambassador had already requested more military security as the INTEL said attacks were on the way and 9-11 was coming up..."

Says the guy who voted for Bush after 9/11/2001

You don't really give your posts much thought, do you?

"but the results speak for themselves -- the weakest recovery from any post-war recession."

Recovering from the worst economic down trend since when?

Ron Paul is just another treasonous Republican
He has voted in lockstep with the Leaders of the Party

Even if a Libertarian did win as President, neither the Dems or Repubs would work with him, they wouldn't be able to change anything.
No one wants really whats the libertarians are offering, Anarchy, and Corporate control.

The only way is to push the Dems to the left, and Vote OUT all Republicans

Recovering from the worst economic down trend since when?

historically, one would have to go back to the Great Depression in the 1930s, although the sheer number of Americans who lost their jobs in the Bush Recession was even larger than in the Great Depression (although technically the unemployment rate was higher then)


But back to the Economic Recovery Act:

For all of you who "think" you know enough about it to have an opinion, let's see just how much you DO know:

The Recovery Act was divided into three major components, roughly name them.

1

2

""but the results speak for themselves -- the weakest recovery from any post-war recession.""

None of which bear any comparison to The Lost Decade, obviously

Only The Great Depression is a relevant benchmark

Why won't the Republicans in Congress do something to help the economic Recovery????
That's their job, The President can't write a economic recovery plan, only congress can do that, and then the President either signs it, or vetoes it, that's his only power over the Economy as far as the Gov. goes.

anyone??

Is it not treasonous to make America suffer more than it needs to.
In the lightest terms, they are negligent of their duties as a Congressman, they are doing the work of the people, they are playing politics at America's Expense

And for what?
So they can regain power using lies and manipulation.

Well folks,

Mr. Romney will indeed have a very busy first day as President.

He has vowed to repeal the healthcare bill on his very first day!

And when he does, it looks like people like Ron will not be getting a monthly voucher check to assist them in buying healthcare.

All seniors will immediately will have to pay much more for their prescription drugs, because the donut hole closing will be taken away, on day one.

And the millions of children with "pre existing conditions" who are now covered thanks to the ACA, will immediately lose their healthcare.


And THEN, also on day one, Mr. Romney will part the Dead Sea and raise the dead!

Kman, to label EITHER SIDE total treasonous bastards isnt really fair. ... There are many on both sides of the coin whom have attempted to do good by the people.



Ron, how about this:

Does the Norquist No-Tax Pledge Violate the Congressional Oath of Office?

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/judge-h-lee-sarokin/does-the-norquist-notax-p_b_853312.html

The Pledge extracted from members of Congress commits "a member to oppose and vote against any effort to raise the federal income tax on individuals or corporations."(Americans For Tax Reform) In addition to prohibiting direct increases, it also prohibits ending loopholes or deductions, since they likewise raise taxes.


Yes, treasonous bastards, the GOP members of Congress.

Oh my!

This IS a conservative's wet dream come true!

Under President Obama, the number of government employees is DECREASING!

Yes folks, we hate them "govmint" workers, don't we?

We would just as soon they lose their cushy govmint jobs, and get off their lazy asses
and find a "real" job!

Thank you, President Obama, for getting rid of all those "free loading" govmint slackers!

Romney as Commander-in-Chief? When the going gets tough, will he go on a mission? Probably not, he'll just call in Cheney for the tough calls.

Well, after all the claims of Romney being a liar after the debate...you know the debate I'm talking about, the one where Obama got his ass handed to him...
Anyways after all the attempts by Obama to claim Romney's tax plan would raise taxes on the middle class etc. and Obama even quoting Economists by name saying,

"In fact, Harvard economist Martin Feldstein and Princeton economist Harvey Rosen both concede that paying for Romney’s tax cuts would require large tax increases on families making between $100,000 and $200,000."

It turns out, the liar is Obama after all. (Shocker I know)
Apparently, Princeton economist Harvey Rosen was not too happy about the fact that his study's results were being misrepresented.

Harvey Rosen said:

“I can’t tell exactly how the Obama campaign reached that characterization of my work. It might be that they assume that Governor Romney wants to keep the taxes from the Affordable Care Act in place, despite the fact that the Governor has called for its complete repeal. The main conclusion of my study is that under plausible assumptions, a proposal along the lines suggested by Governor Romney can both be revenue neutral and keep the net tax burden on taxpayers with incomes above $200,000 about the same. That is, an increase in the tax burden on lower and middle income individuals is not required in order to make the overall plan revenue neutral.”

Wow.
I’m not sure which is more dishonest …lying about Romney’s tax plan or lying about research to support their conclusions.

Corniss, you little scamp, you nailed it!!

That share the wealth thing didn't work out so good, right?
WTF???

I'm not sure about some of these people we are debating, could CC be just a (*) troll?

Of course she's troll, she Never responds to questions or joins in on a debate.
She just throws a couple right wing fire bombs and runs

Shack are you trying to say that the only tax Romney is planning to cut is the currently non-existant not in effect Obamacare private insurance mandate?

Why didn't he just say that?

Clearly cutting a non-existant tax would be revenue neutral..lol

Cutting ANY actually existing tax would be almost impossible to be revenue neutral. Unless one then levies additional other taxes. Another scenario would be reducing taxes during an economic upswing that increases revenue by the same amount cut. But that one requires the non-existant crystal ball and or luck.

Budget neutral is more possible but would of course require cutting various expenditures.

This seems to be of no help to me (being the fiscal conservative I generally am) I much prefer a rise in Taxes at this time on those who can afford them coupled with a reduction in expenditures.

I am for cutting the deficit..Like Obama is and Unlike Romney apparently
