Statistics show that the stock market averages about 15% under Democratic presidents and about 9% under Republican presidents. It appears that Democrats tend to do more to strengthen the middle class or backbone of our economy. You can’t have a prosperous Wall Street with a bankrupt Main Street.
I personally would like to see a flat-tax with a “Poverty Line Standard Deduction” based on how many kids you have. With NO loopholes, this tax system would do more to make sure that everyone pays his or her fair share beyond a reasonable affordability threshold. If all Americans are equal in the eyes of the law, then all Americans should be subject to the same price (tax rate) for government services IMO. It would also be nice to be able to do your taxes in less than five minutes ;)
Python, disparity between dems and repubs is because the repubs usually follow the dems and vice versa. Reagan repaired carter's mess, clinton cruised on Reagan and bush, then bush crashed on clinton policies. The dem congress (and clinton) screwed bush jr w/ their liberal policies, and now BO can fix it. (I doubt it) I think that is why clinton didn't put his full endorsement in for BO as he thought the dems would not fare well in 2010 senate and 2012 pres and senate elections as a result. I think we will soon see what BO knows: Not much.
