cowtransplant fell free to challenge anything with verifiable facts.

Oh, My bad. Facts to a liberal are like Kryptonite to Superman.

Or in the liberals case, Super-genderneutral.

RockERedistributionist “pass a package on the floor of the Senate without debate or amendments”

Read that again, because it's so telling. The leftist “Progressives” actually want the US Senate to pass a taxation bill without any debate. Without any chance for any member of the Senate to discuss or amend any aspect of it.

You have to ask yourself, why are the Demorats so afraid of debate? Why are the Demorats so afraid to even discuss amendments? Is our US Senate now a rubber stamp for Barry Obamboozler’s leftist wealth redistribution machine? You Demorats wish. Unfortunately for you, but fortunately for freedom and justice, that’s NOT how we legislate in America, loons. But keep trying. You’ll get your leftist dictatorship someday...

troll's "Now why in the world" poses an interesting premise bearing research.

Now why in the world would the resident troll digress into the usual Democrat lambasting as opposed to investigating the whys and wherefores of the tax break situation via a few clicks?

That's right, cuz debate to the troll is like a braille pom pom to a cheerleader at the school for the blind.

RockERebabbler “Democratic leaders made a late push to extend many of the tax breaks by ASKING Republican colleagues to pass a package on the floor of the Senate without debate or amendments”

Now why in the world would Demorats insist on NO DEBATE or NO AMENDMENTS? Are Demorats afraid to discuss what they are putting into law now? Afraid Republicans will expose their corruption and pork? Afraid Republican amendments might spoil their Demorat plans for self enrichment by introducing amendments to cut some of the Demorat bribery and cronyism from the unconstitutional laws they’re imposing?

Demorats. The Party of No Debate. The Party of No Vote. The Party of No Progress. Keep voting Dem, America, and enjoy the stagnation and chaos.

The TOTAL budget deficit for 2007 was $162 BILLION and the CBO forecast a SURPLUS by 2012.

The MONTHLY yes 31 day DEFICIT in October 2013 was $475 BILLION, almost 3 times the deficit for the ENTIRE YEAR in 2007 with BUSH tax cuts and 2 WARS going FULL bore.

So how did that Obama Economy work out for ya???

Wonderliar, total employment in the USA Jan 2008 last year of Bush:

146,407,000

Total Employment in the USA Nov. 2013: 144,386,000

Loss: 2,021,000.

Now according to Obama over 3 MILLION jobs have been created, which MUST mean that 2 million PLUS 3 million = OVER 5 MILLION JOBS LOST in the last 5 years!!!!

And Barry spent over $ 1 TRILLION on Stimulus (with interest) and over $ 4 TRILLION in QEII.

So by INCREASING the debt by a WORLD RECORD $7 TRILLION plus the $4 TRILLION in paper money QE = $11 TRILLION spent, we got another 5 MILLION lost jobs!!!!

If that isn't the definition of ABJECT COMPLETE EPIC BIBLICAL LEVEL FAILURE, I don't know what is??

The tax breaks help create jobs so much that the duwhops of the world will not recognize reality. And just what were we recovering from in the first place? The country on the verge of financial collapse and millions of jobs sent overseas? Oh yea, that.

Nothing more needs to be said, 40,000!!!!

"Not everyone subscribes to a New Year's resolution, but Americans will be required to follow new laws in 2014.

Some 40,000 measures taking effect range from sweeping, national mandates under Obamacare to marijuana legalization in Colorado, drone prohibition in Illinois and transgender protections in California.

Although many new laws are controversial, they made it through legislatures, public referendum or city councils and represent the shifting composition of American beliefs."

Tax BREAKS? Hey the rich should pay their fair share, right. SO let em expire, hail yeah.

Just because the 10% of the people pay 70% what is the difference if they pay 80% ?

Why look how well that Obamanation philosophy is working. DOUBLE the number people on food stamps in just over 4 years.

Record numbers of Americans not working, RECORD stretch of high unemployment, worst recovery in the history of the country, and $7 trillion new debt. Why dat boi be a SPENDING FREAK, my man!

Heck tax those job creators a little more and EVERYBODY will be out of job and TOTALLY dependent on big brother for their existence.

Obama vision for America is Detroit: Bankrupt, broke, virtually everyone in poverty . .... and 98% pull the voting machine lever for (D) (D) (D) and Mo' (D). Hallelujah!!!

Gimme my Obamaphone so I can cast my vote on the next American Idol dude!
