Time to Vent

January 24, 2013

Dear Editor, My first vent involves the debt limit. This is the fifth time Obama has asked to raise the debt ceiling. Why is it so critical now but when Bush wanted to raise it, then Sen....

Is that you, Sean Hannity? What a mis-informed diatribe. If you find yourself agreeing with Wayne LaPierre, you have more problems that we can address in a comments section of a website.

I thought Wayne was King of Loonies until I read Dwain. They should start a right wing talk show---something like the Dwain Wayne Show. Hannity, Limbaugh, and Beck would be furious. They're not enough Archie Bunker types for 5 people to make 10 million a year.

Everything you put in print is true and factual Flushing, Good Job. It is a shame that we have to listen to the likes of BUSHY. I bet he is on the Democratic free train that King Obama is driving.

Also 27 kids die each week in the USA at the hands of a parent or parents, legal guardian or caretaker / babysitter. So are we going to ban parents, guardians and babysitters?

Republicans live in an intellectual bubble. They get their news from Fox and other captive media, they get their policy analysis from billionaire-financed right-wing think tanks, and they’re often blissfully unaware both of contrary evidence and of how their positions sound to outsiders.

The GOP is a party that holds a large proportion of Americans in contempt. And the public may have figured that out.

For the record, neither Bush nor Krugman nor the Republicans he spoke of are the current PRESIDENT of the USA....my quote is 100% ACCURATE and was made by our CURRENT President....of course, he is the same one who promised to "fix the economy" in three years or not run for a second term...get out of your time machine, fools. You cant blame Bush forever....or can you???

"Weapons of mass destruction"--George W. Bush

Here are the key facts to know as Republicans unveil their corporate tax reform plan:

– Corporate profits are at record highs, while corporate taxes are at record lows. While the U.S. has a 35 percent corporate tax rate on paper, few corporations actually pay that, due to a proliferation of loopholes, deductions, and the widespread use of tax havens. In 2011, the last year for which data is available, the effective corporate tax rate fell to 12.1 percent, a forty-year low. The corporate tax used to track resonably well with corporate profits, but the two have become decoupled in recent years, with profits shooting up while corporate taxes as a share of the economy plummeted.

– Many of the biggest corporations pay no corporate income tax at all. As Citizens for Tax Justice has found, many of the biggest corporations have effective tax rates near zero. 26 major corporations paid no corporate income tax between 2008 and 2011, while making a collective $205 billion in profits.

– The GOP’s favorite corporate tax idea helps outsource jobs. Republicans love to promote a “territorial” corporate tax system, under which offshore profits made by U.S. companies are never taxed. (Currently, those profits are taxed when they are brought back to the U.S.) The Congressional Budget Office recently reported that such a plan results in “increasing incentives to shift business operations and reported income to countries with lower tax rates.”

– Corporate tax reform should raise revenue. Corporate taxes used to make up about one-third of federal revenue; now it makes up less than 9 percent. The U.S. used to raise about 5 percent of GDP in corporate tax revenue; now it raises below 2 percent. As former White House economist Jared Bernstein noted, “locking in these historically low revenue levels, either as a share of GDP, total receipts, or profits, would be yet another self-inflected wound.”

BCF. Higher corporate taxes, less jobs, higher unemployment. Wake up and understand how we can create real jobs not government hand outs that guess who funds. We need real job creation. do you want more jobs created in Ohio County and Belmont County??????? The worst possible action is to raise the corporate tax rate.

Now the Republican Idol Marco Rubio, the greatest political hack in Congress, sees an opportunity to be a hero to the Latinos. But his lily white Cuban skin does not endear him to all Hispanics.

Please support your party's elected leaders with comments about positive progress on specific issues that you can clearly elucidate.

So sick of name calling on both sides like a bunch of schoolchildren on the playground. Be substantive or be gone!

If you need affirmation that badly go see a shrink anf talk about your mother. Sheesh...

To elucidate means to "make clear". So you want us to clearly make clear?
