YixilTesiphon: HMS_Blinkin: YixilTesiphon: LouDobbsAwaaaay: We know what causes the anemic growth. The only remaining question is if we'll manage to overcome the absurdity of supply-side corporate theft economics in time to do anything about it.Well, how do you propose to do that?Re-enact all of the financial regulation put in place after the great depression that we got rid of in the 80s and 90s, most notably glass-stegall. Return the top marginal income tax rate to where it was before the bush tax cuts. Increase corporate taxes but increase corporate tax breaks for investment inside the USA (new buildings/factories, hiring). Use increased tax revenues to fund infrastructure, education, etc.Basically, invest in the middle class and force the banks/corporations to do the same.Will any of that lead to a debt level that doesn't crowd out private investment?
Edward Rooney Dean of Students: Propain_az: I don't know how to prove it, but this is clearly Bush and Romney's fault. President Obama is doing the best he can, but these dang right-wing fools will not stop muddling in his business.It's funny, I know you're being sarcastic, but I hear that excuse ALL THE TIME from Obama supporters. "He's doing his best, blah, blah blah...". Ok, fine. If he really is doing his "best", is he just not very good in the first place? Maybe his "Best" isn't good enough? It's kind of like the old Bush canard where he's either an idiot or an evil mastermind. Can't be both.
