Nagarajan Sivakumar, you suggest I read Jay Cost who asks the following:
Who's arguing that "tax cuts alone" will solve this problem? Even if some are, is this the median position on the Republican side?
Thirty-six out of 41 Republican Senators voted for the proposed DeMint amendment to the stimulus bill which provide for:
1)Permanently repeal the alternative minimum tax once and for all;
2)Permanently keep the capital gains and dividends taxes at 15 percent;
3)Permanently kill the Death Tax for estates under $5 million, and cut the tax rate to 15 percent for those above;
4)Permanently extend the $1,000-per-child tax credit;
5)Permanently repeal the marriage tax penalty;
6)Permanently simplify itemized deductions to include only home mortgage interest and charitable contributions.
7)Lower top marginal income rates from 35 percent to 25 percent.
8)Simplify the tax code to include only two other brackets, 15 and 10 percent.
9) Lower corporate tax rate as well, from 35 percent to 25 percent.
So there you have it. 87% of Republican Senators, which includes the median, support the position that the President attacked. That is not attacking a strawman.

Please sleep comfortably tonight as you do not have to worry about Bill Ayers. He does not have the back door key to the White House. Really. He doesn't.
And I most certainly do represent the religious gun clinging patriots you know. Don't call me a weirdo.Comment Posted By James Adkisson On 11.02.2009 @ 08:11

It's your party that stuck its nose in Terry Schiavo's hospital room and wants to stick its nose in every gynecologist's patient rooms. It's your party that sees nothing wrong with eavesdropping on phone calls between citizens without bothering to go through the FISA courts. It's your party that wants to go into America's bedrooms and determine what sexual activities it will allow and what people can purchase for their own private pleasure. It's your party which takes glee in imprisoning millions of our citizens for smoking a little weed, even when it's used by chemotherapy patients for medicinal use. It's your party which is opposed to any type of death with dignity for terminal patients. And this is your party, too:
"Know this if nothing else: This was a hate crime. I hate the damn left-wing liberals. There is a vast left-wing conspiracy in this country & these liberals are working together to attack every decent & honorable institution in the nation, trying to turn this country into a communist state. Shame on them....
"This was a symbolic killing. Who I wanted to kill was every Democrat in the Senate & House, the 100 people in Bernard Goldberg's book. I'd like to kill everyone in the mainstream media. But I know those people were inaccessible to me. I couldn't get to the generals & high ranking officers of the Marxist movement so I went after the foot soldiers, the chickenshit liberals that vote in these traitorous people. Someone had to get the ball rolling. I volunteered. I hope others do the same. It's the only way we can rid America of this cancerous pestilence."
"I thought I'd do something good for this Country Kill Democrats til the cops kill me....Liberals are a pest like termites. Millions of them Each little bite contributes to the downfall of this great nation. The only way we can rid ourselves of this evil is to kill them in the streets. Kill them where they gather. I'd like to encourage other like minded people to do what I've done. If life aint worth living anymore don't just kill yourself. do something for your Country before you go. Go Kill Liberals.Comment Posted By James Adkisson On 10.02.2009 @ 19:04
