    Obama’s budget was voted down 97-0 by the Senate (Democrat controlled no less).

    So for the last 3 years there has been no budget at all just $5 trillion added to the debt.

    Anyway Romney is the one running for President and he will propose his own budget as he sees fit.

    He already said he wants to implement Ryan's plan.

    You got to hand it to him though, no matter how many times his research is wrong and how many times he is called out on it, he comes right back in the "Fail" lane everytime.

    Just trying to get the media to talk about that "internet buzz" for Obama.

    A stunning report from Chris Matthews at MSNBC: "We have learned that there are even people on conservative gun boards who get a tingly feeling down their leg when they hear Obama speak."

    Romney may incorporate parts of Ryan’s plan but any budget will have to go through Congress to be negotiated and probably include Democrats so there will be a lot of changes.

    By acting as President instead of as King, Romney will get the budget back on track.

    As far as sticking it to the middle class, the $17 trillion debt already did that. Growing the economy will balance a budget without pain but even that might not work at these debt levels.

    Just wait until you file next years taxes - then you'll see who really has put the corn cob where the sun don't shine! Obamacare kicks in the largest tax increase in American history! And since Congress- Harry Reid will do nothing about taxes you get hit with the second biggest tax in history! So yea the Socialist Government of Obamamoa will definately make you all warm an fuzzy soon- grab your ankles!:steamed:

    I have no love for Obama. However, endorsing Ryan is like cattle endorsing the beef industry. Given, where you come from, you should know.

    Well, if there was any doubt you DU guys had your work cut out for you this election, the lame posts you guys are putting up as justification for re-electing O-Nothing removes it.

    It's almost boring.

    Why don't you tell us again, how great O-Nothing has been for working Americans (we already know how great he has been for the ones who don't want to work so you can skip that part).

    What did Paul Ryan do to you? Nobody can be so irrational about a politician as you are about Ryan unless you personally got sideways with him somehow. Almost all your slanderous remarks (social security, married rich girl to buy congressional seat) are patently false. What happened that has left you so butt-hurt by Paul Ryan that you have to invent thinigs to make him look like the devil? Please share, maybe we can help.

    C'mon, he is just offering some comic relief around here. He isn't serious he's just trying to amuse us.

    Can you cite a source for this?

    The potential tax increases I am aware of is discontinuation of the Bush tax rollback, and discontinuation of the temporary FICA tax rollback.

    Are there others?

    I am not about O, I realize you are probably of the mentality of I am retired, I got mine. However, I wouldn't be suprised if Ryan leads the way to run rough shod over the folks that are still working, and then come after your *****on next.

    Capital gains tax goes to 20%. There's a 3.8% tax on certain investements for people over 200K or 250K married. Those investments are basically capital gains. This is a medicare tax I think. So for "high earners" the capital gains rate is up from 15% to 23.8% (I believe the top dividend rate goes to 43.4%, but not positive).

    Combine this with income tax increases proposed by letting the present rates default back to the previous levels, and you have a fairly sizable income tax (as well as estate tax) icrease that will do nothing about the deficits these people want ot run, but WILL in fact punish successful folks that may be able to produce jobs (unlike the gov).

    A 2.3% tax on medical device manufacturing. This is a gross reciepts tax so it's actuall worse than it sounds. I know that's not an income tax, but the price of those devices will go up and guess who pays for that. Need help? The same people that are paying income taxes.

    Raising the tax deduction threshold on medical expenses from 7.5% to 10%.

    Placing a cap on flexible spending accounts at $2500. There is no cap now and this allows you to use pre-tax dollars to pay for planned big expenses like braces or special needs tuition for special needs kids.

    There's a medicare payroll tax inthere someplace too.

    There's more, but you get the idea.

    Do a Google search; taxes are going up January 1st 2013 (after Obama’s election of course).

    A lot of it affects those rich bastards ($200k/year).

    3.8% real estate sales tax.

    Free healthcare ain’t free. These taxes along with the end of the Bush tax rates will crater the economy.

    Hello Great Recession II.
