Reminiscing about Hope and Change

Well, it didn't really work out, but with easy access to history through youtube, I guess my liberal friends can always look back at how much fun it was at the time. This is for you guys:



Feel free to share your memories of Obama's faded glory in this thread and maybe have a cry for what might have been while you ignore the new reality:

Well by that logic, if Romney will run the economy with the results of Bush, we'd be in HALF as much additional debt as we would with a repeat of Hopera at the wheel of the USS Titanic.

Like any cost benefit analysis, you have to make assumptions about growth. And our federal entitlement structure is so messed up you have to incur cost to create long term benefit. For example, social security is broken, but you can't deny access to old people who paid into it. I despise that I'm young and have to pay into social security ill never see.

I'm not a fan of trickle down economics. And I agree, I hate that tax cuts and refusal to tax the upper class are off the table. I think those are stupid party policies. But I think those are much bigger issues than inability to address massively escalating entitlement costs. After all... Lower taxes is a simple fix. In the future, raise taxes. Entitlements on the other hand... Those won't be reformed unless somebody takes a bold step.

I disagree. If the reports are true, the "grand bargain" between Bohner and Obama, Obama put entitlemnet cuts on the table in exchange for taxing the rich.

Dems arnt blind. Entitlments have to be reformed and curtailed but no ****ing way will I ever be in favor of that without the rich going back to the tax rate under Clinton. Thats not too much of a burden to bear.

You misinterpreted me. I'm saying that some of Bush's policies are actually what we need now (far better than what Obama and the dems have in mind). It's just that we need to weed out the big spending from Bush and we sure as hell don't need the ultra big spending on non-growth programs that we got from Obama.

Have you seen the BS #'s in Ryans budget? That budget will explode the deficit and run up trillions of more $'s in debt.

There has to be a different path that tax cuts wieghed heavily in favor of the rich. Surely, that not the best idea out there to get us out of this mess?
Have you even bothered to look at Obama's budget proposals where he ignores entitlements completely?

The Bush tax cuts were across the board tax cuts, not tax cuts "weighted heavily in favor of the rich". JFC, the poor barely pay taxes. How are we supposed to cut their taxes as much as we cut the taxes of real taxpayers? Are you serious about addressing the economy and the deficit/entitlement time bomb or are you more concerned with increasing the progressivity of the tax code?

Why Clinton? Why not Carter or JFK? What's so magical about the tax rates under Clinton? And are you going to insist that everyone else's rates go back to what they were under Clinton too?

at the end of clinton, the top 10% paid 65% of all federal income tax. in 09, they paid 70% of the total. is that because more people are broke and the bottom 90% is growing? i would think the government should focus on creating more rich people to tax(that's who makes people rich, after all) than to tax any of the current batch into stagnation.

no, 3% is doable. I'd like to see them rolled back to where they were under the R's hero, Regan.

The Reagan rates were a package deal. He wouldn't have supported the high top rate you're advocating combined with the breaks he agreed to give low income groups. Don't invoke Reagan unless you're actually advocating something he would have supported. Don't be BEP.

So now you have a exclusive on what the dead guy would have done?

How do you know? He raised taxes how many times? How many times did he compromise?
