    Tax cuts for the rich do not create jobs. Bush gave the rich a big tax cut, and job creation wasn't close to where it was under Clinton.

    The rich do not use their extra money to create jobs in America. They use it to invest in foreign markets and create jobs overseas. Our country needs to go isolationist in order for the "tax cuts for rich people equals more jobs" claim to be true.

    Liberals are obsessed with rich people because their greed has ruined our economy. We want to make sure it doesn't ruin America for good.

    Taxes and tax cuts are not something the truly "rich" fear. This is where people on both sides need a wake up call. Look at the campaign contributors for each candidate and tell me the "rich" give a damn about threats of taxes or not.

    What they do fear is reduced profit margin. Higher taxes mean the tax bill gets passed onto the consumer and nothing more. Does anybody have any real sense that taxing these people is going to equate to those tax dollars in turn finding their way into the hands of the poor in this country? This is an absurd idea because rich and poor become relative when prices rise as a result.

    Both sides could promote tariffs on goods entering this country or aggressively promote the idea that to save the U.S. economy, Americans must refuse to buy those goods manufactured overseas by American firms. That is how you "redistribute" wealth.

    All liberals point to the SUPER-rich who have no WAGE INCOME and use envy of THOSE few people as justification for HUGE tax increases on WAGES.

    At present, the PUBLISHED plan openly supported by ALL elected Democrats calls for NO impact on the Warren Buffet class; for a RECORD single-year rate increase on the top 2% of WAGE earners in January 2013 and a RECORD single-year rate increase for the BOTTOM 98% in January 2014 - all "justified" by screaming "look at the rich guy, look at the rich guy!"

    Calvin Coolidge cut taxes three times during his administration.

    There was a serious of recessions during the 1920s.

    The response was cut taxes reduce, the size of government and reduce regulations on banks and businesses.

    Anyone who knows exactly what Calvin coolidge's policies were would not want tax cuts.

    Crazy isn't it! It started with Obama and somehow they can't see the connection between what the rich are doing for him or as you say create jobs. What about the rich democrats or those on the left, are they exempt cause after all liberals are hypocrites.

    Remember when the press asked Dillinger why he robbed banks? He said, "I rob banks because that is where the money is." Liberals know that Rich people have the money that they need to buy the votes from the poor people.

    Liberals don't care if a jobs get created or not cuz big daddy government is gonna take care of them.

    They don't realize that even if you confiscated every penny the rich have you still couldn't pay for all the programs they want.

    Jealousy. They hate the idea that someone has more than they do and they expect the government to make everyone equal - equally miserable, at least.

    Cris Ray, government school graduate? It shows.
