Rosen's paper did find that families making more than $100,000 per year would have to pay $81 billion more in taxes under Romney's tax plan, a 12 percent increase. But his paper did not explicitly say whether these families, whose incomes he assumes would be rising, would actually pay a higher tax rate.

Rosen's conclusion that Romney's tax plan is mathematically possible rests on a questionable assumption: namely that Romney's tax cuts for the rich would lead to robust economic growth. In fact, economic growth sharply slowed during the Bush administration, when President George W. Bush cut taxes for the rich. Brad DeLong, economics professor at the University of California at Berkeley, also notes that President Ronald Reagan's tax cuts for the rich did not lead to much stronger economic growth either.

she DIDNT "endorse" the film,, but for three days the whole ADMIN put the BLAME for the ATTACKS squarely upon that film... Its in countless videos for you to see for yourself. I knew THE NEXT morning it was planned attacks. MANY thousands of people knew THE NEXT day that those were planned attacks.


Have you heard obama APOLOGIZE yet for his inept actions regarding this? Has he apologized to the Stevens family for NOT letting him have the added security asked for in AUGUST? Even AFTER having the INTEL that said attacks were coming? Some commander in chief alright...

They are hiring folks with MASTERS degrees at places like Ihop or Quick-marts.


A sure sign that something is wrong! Oh my, maybe NV isn't the place to go with a Masters?

Or, perhaps Frank Zappa was right:

You get nothing with your college diploma.



Ron, perhaps I can better articulate your statement: "Things are really bad. I don't know how they got here, and I don't know what's happening now, but we must change horses PRONTO!"

"and Kman,, how many past presidents in the last thirty years have "changed much"????"

I can think of at least 4,000 US families of Iraq casualties that have experienced plenty of change...


Unreal that you could believe or ask such a thing, Ron.

Yeah, and i can think of how many casualties and family's affected by afghanistan et al as well. same ol same ol...We get attacked by primarily saudis, so bush went after iraq. obama gets attacked by libya and concentrates "suddenly" on iran. The ME is the ME and all dealings have gone the way of the ME for as long as weve attempted to "change" them. If you cant see that then your blind..


edit: Locker- It is the economy that fuels NV- being a tourist based gambling economy that deals with "disposable incomes" that simply ARENT there now.

Any LINKS on how hard the State has been hit???...

Links of Vegas losing moola???...

EDITED:

The country was hit hard and all states messed with...

Was Nevada somehow hit harder???...






ANOTHER EDIT, EDIT:

"Locker- It is the economy that fuels NV- being a tourist based gambling economy that deals with "disposable incomes" that simply ARENT there now."...

Wasn't the big FALL during Bush's stay at the big hotel???...

Let's see.

We've got ourselves cliffed out, and we've done so tied into a rope, so we have to get off that rope RIGHT NOW!!

Yep, I want you on my rope team, mate.

Yes Locker- NV has ALWAYS been a boom/bust state with the economy and gold prices being the engines. Then throw in the housing debacle and it was a doomed situation.

I am honestly not real sure how you can blame Obama for our current situation...

He wasn't even in office when it started...




EDITED:

Neither side could make real QUICK changes...

It will be HARD and LONG work for whomever...




Why the hell people think that Obama could quickly fix this mess, is beyond me...

True enough locker, but right now the unemployment figure for my county in NV is at 21.3%!! Yes of course,, BUSH contributed to the demise of my economy locally, HOWEVER this is coming up on four years under obama. I DO NOT buy the "first term is just practice" crap anymore.
