From PERRspectives: Why in hell do we want to continue the Bush Tax Cuts?

Don’t you see what they have caused? Here are the 10 Epic Failures of the Bush Tax Cuts (each one will lead you to an overall definitive view):

  1. Dismal Economic Growth
  2. A Decade of Budget Deficits
  3. Red Ink as Far as the Eye Can See
  4. Disastrous Job Creation
  5. Declining Incomes
  6. Increasing Poverty
  7. A Massive Windfall for the Wealthy
  8. Record Income Inequality
  9. A Sagging Stock Market
  10. Jeopardizing Future Economic Growth

Well, I see why the wealthy are happy with the continuation, but that rules 99% of us out.

Quote of the Week – from Joe Scarborough of all people!

“This is one Republican who would prefer that the former half-term governor promote her reality shows and hawk her books without demeaning the reputations of Presidents Reagan and Bush. These great men dedicated their lives to public service and are too good to be fodder for her gaudy circus sideshow. If Republicans want to embrace Palin as a cultural icon whose anti-intellectualism fulfills a base political need, then have at it. I suppose it’s cheaper than therapy. But if the party of Ronald Reagan, Paul Ryan and Marco Rubio wants to return to the White House anytime soon, it’s time that Republican leaders started standing up and speaking the truth to Palin,”

- Joe Scarborough.

Looks like the Repiglicans face a great divide.

Most Americans want it, the Administration wants it, McCain doesn’t want it. Who’s right?

Looks like this will come up this week and we may get a decision on DADT:

The Pentagon study that argues that gay troops could serve openly without hurting the military’s ability to fight is expected to re-ignite debate this month on Capitol Hill over repealing the 17-year-old “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy.

Officials familiar with the 10-month study’s results have said a clear majority of respondents don’t care if gays serve openly, with 70 percent predicting that lifting the ban would have positive, mixed or no results. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the findings hadn’t been released.

Republicans, led by Sen. John McCain of Arizona, have mostly opposed repealing the law because they say efforts to do so are politically driven and dangerous at a time of two wars.

“This was a political promise made by an inexperienced president or candidate for presidency of the United States,” McCain told CNN’s “State of the Union” last weekend.
