    What IdiotBoy aka IBDMORON doesn't understand about the economy or taxes

    He talked about his BB yesterday, but he only saw what he wanted to see, he didn't tell you about april 2012 or 2011. This want to be doesn't have a clue about the work force or what is happening in the real world, just like acouple of weeks ago when he mentioned CAT and no jobs, right! that's why they built a new plant in Georgia. I can tell you for certain that there is no correlation between high taxes and a robust economy, aka 1949-1971, the strongest growth period the US has seen with much higher taxes, and much higher wages adjusted for inflation, J.C. even Reagan knew that when he ran Calif. as Govenor, a governor who taxed Calif higher nearly every year he was in office, same goes for his Presidency when he tripled the debt

    • h20: That's awesome that you approve of CAT building yet another plant in a Right-to-Work State!!

      Look at all of the jobs they created by doing so!!

      Your California had to outsource an entire F'n bridge to China because of the high cost of wages!!


    • What has an effect on the economy is spending. When the government spends more it has the same effect as a stimulus package. Perhaps better because they're not trying and therefore screwing it up.

      The correlation between high taxes and economic expansion are due to the big spenders also being big taxers. This has converged at out current debt and fiscal crisis where we are deeply in debt and not growing. As it turns out, whether you are a democrat or a republic, if you're a liberal then you have been proven wrong. It is actually not the healthy way to run the country. A wise man once said, "DuH!"

    • getting angry with someone you do not know...just don't read him anymore or do as i am doing as soon as i post this and put them on ignore
