‎'1) President Obama tripled the deficit.
Reality: Bush's last budget had a $1.416 trillion deficit. Obama's first budget reduced that to $1.29 trillion.

2) President Obama raised taxes, which hurt the economy.
Reality: Obama cut taxes. 40% of............ ...the "stimulus" was wasted on tax cuts which only create debt, which ...is why it was so much less effective than it could have been.

3) President Obama bailed out the banks.
Reality: While many people conflate the "stimulus" with the bank bailouts, the bank bailouts were requested by President Bush and his Treasury Secretary, former Goldman Sachs CEO Henry Paulson. (Paulson also wanted the bailouts to be "non-reviewable by any court or any agency.") The bailouts passed and began before the 2008 election of President Obama.
4) The stimulus didn't work.
Reality: The stimulus worked, but was not enough. In fact, according to the Congressional Budget Office, the stimulus raised employment by between 1.4 million and 3.3 million jobs.
5) Businesses will hire if they... get tax cuts.
Reality: A business hires the right number of employees to meet demand. Having extra cash does not cause a business to hire, but a business that has a demand for what it does will find the money to hire. Businesses want customers, not tax cuts.
6) Health care reform costs $1 trillion.
Reality: The health care reform reduces government deficits by $138 billion.
7) Social Security is a Ponzi scheme, is "going broke," people live longer, fewer workers per retiree, etc.
Reality: Social Security has run a surplus since it began, has a trust fund in the trillions, is completely sound for at least 25 more years and cannot legally borrow so cannot contribute to the deficit (compare that to the military budget!) Life expectancy is only longer because fewer babies die; people who reach 65 live about the same number of years as they used to.
8) Government spending takes money out of the economy.
Reality: Government is We, the People and the money it spends is on We, the People. Many people do not know that it is government that builds the roads, airports, ports, courts, schools and other things that are the soil in which business thrives. Many people think that all government spending is on "welfare" and "foreign aid" when that is only a small part of the government's budget

PAUL KRUGMAN

And I don’t just mean politicians. Did you notice the U-turn many political
commentators and other Serious People made when the Obama-McConnell tax-cut deal
was announced? One day deficits were the great evil and we needed fiscal
austerity now now now, never mind the state of the economy. The next day $800
billion in debt-financed tax cuts, with the prospect of more to come, was the
greatest thing since sliced bread, a triumph of bipartisanship.
Still, it was the politicians — and, yes, that mainly meant Republicans — who
took the lead on the hypocrisy front.
In the first half of 2010, impassioned speeches denouncing federal red ink
were the G.O.P. norm. And concerns about the deficit were the stated reason for
Republican opposition to extension of unemployment benefits, or for that matter
any proposal to help Americans cope with economic hardship.
But the tone changed during the summer, as B-day — the day when the Bush tax
breaks for the wealthy were scheduled to expire — began to approach. My
nomination for headline of the year comes from the newspaper Roll Call, on July
18: “McConnell Blasts Deficit Spending, Urges Extension of Tax Cuts.”
How did Republican leaders reconcile their purported deep concern about
budget deficits with their advocacy of large tax cuts? Was it that old voodoo
economics — the belief, refuted by study after study, that tax cuts pay for
themselves — making a comeback? No, it was something new and worse.
To be sure, there were renewed claims that tax cuts lead to higher revenue.
But 2010 marked the emergence of a new, even more profound level of magical
thinking: the belief that deficits created by tax cuts just don’t matter. For
example, Senator Jon Kyl of Arizona — who had denounced President Obama for
running deficits — declared that “you should never have to offset the cost of a
deliberate decision to reduce tax rates on Americans.” It’s an easy position to ridicule. After all, if you never have to offset the
cost of tax cuts, why not just eliminate taxes altogether? But the joke’s on us
because while this kind of magical thinking may not yet be the law of the land,
it’s about to become part of the rules governing legislation in the House of
Representatives.
As the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities points out, the incoming House
majority plans to make changes in the “pay-as-you-go” rules — rules that are
supposed to enforce responsible budgeting — that effectively implement Mr. Kyl’s
principle. Spending increases will have to be offset, but revenue losses from
tax cuts won’t. Oh, and revenue increases, even if they come from the
elimination of tax loopholes, won’t count either: any spending increase must be
offset by spending cuts elsewhere; it can’t be paid for with additional taxes.
So if taxes don’t matter, does the incoming majority have a realistic plan to
cut spending? Of course not. Republicans say that they want to cut $100 billion
in spending, which is itself small change in a $3.6 trillion federal budget. But
they also say that defense, Medicare and Social Security — all the big-ticket
items — are off the table. So they’re talking about a 20 percent cut in what’s
left, which includes things like running the judicial system and operating the
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; they have offered no specifics about
where the cuts will fall.
How will this all end? I have seen the future, and it’s on Long Island, where
I grew up.
Nassau County — the part of Long Island that directly abuts New York City —
is one of the wealthiest counties in America and has an unemployment rate well
below the national average. So it should be weathering the economic storm better
than most places.
But a year ago, in one of the first major Tea Party victories, the county
elected a new executive who railed against budget deficits and promised both to
cut taxes and to balance the budget. The tax cuts happened; the promised
spending cuts didn’t. And now the county is in fiscal crisis.
Now the federal government has a lot more flexibility than a county
government: it needn’t, and shouldn’t, balance its budget each year. The
deficits of the past two years have actually been a good thing, helping to
support the economy in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis.
But Nassau County shows how easily responsible government can collapse in
this country, now that one of our major parties believes in budget magic. All it
takes is disgruntled voters who don’t know what’s at stake — and we have plenty
of those. Banana republic, here we come.

‎"The United States is a rich and strong country, but even rich and strong countries squander trillions of dollars at their peril. Think what a difference $3 trillion could make for so many of the United States' -- or the world's -- problem......s. We could have had a Marshall Plan to help desperately poor countries, winning the hearts and maybe the minds of Muslim nations now gripped by anti-Americanism. In a world with millions of illiterate children, we could have achieved literacy for all -- for less than the price of a month's combat in Iraq. We worry about China's growing influence in Africa, but the upfront cost of a month of fighting in Iraq would pay for more than doubling our annual current aid spending on Africa."http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/03/07/AR2008030702846.html Socialism is the public ownership of all of the means of productions.

The White House is faced with rebellion in the president's party against his agreement with Republicans on which tax cuts to extend.
While running against Reagan for the Presidential nomination in 1980, George Bush had derided Reaganomics as... "voodoo economics"
'1) President Obama tripled the deficit.
Reality: Bush's last budget had a $1.416 trillion deficit. Obama's first ...budget reduced that to $1.29 trillion.

2) President Obama raised taxes, which hurt the economy.
Reality: Obama cut taxes. 40% of............ ...the "stimulus" was wasted on tax cuts which only create debt, which ...is why it was so much less effective than it could have been.

3) President Obama bailed out the banks.
Reality: While many people conflate the "stimulus" with the bank bailouts, the bank bailouts were requested by President Bush and his Treasury Secretary, former Goldman Sachs CEO Henry Paulson. (Paulson also wanted the bailouts to be "non-reviewable by any court or any agency.") The bailouts passed and began before the 2008 election of President Obama.
4) The stimulus didn't work.
Reality: The stimulus worked, but was not enough. In fact, according to the Congressional Budget Office, the stimulus raised employment by between 1.4 million and 3.3 million jobs.
5) Businesses will hire if they... get tax cuts.
Reality: A business hires the right number of employees to meet demand. Having extra cash does not cause a business to hire, but a business that has a demand for what it does will find the money to hire. Businesses want customers, not tax cuts.
6) Health care reform costs $1 trillion.
Reality: The health care reform reduces government deficits by $138 billion.
7) Social Security is a Ponzi scheme, is "going broke," people live longer, fewer workers per retiree, etc.
Reality: Social Security has run a surplus since it began, has a trust fund in the trillions, is completely sound for at least 25 more years and cannot legally borrow so cannot contribute to the deficit (compare that to the military budget!) Life expectancy is only longer because fewer babies die; people who reach 65 live about the same number of years as they used to.
8) Government spending takes money out of the economy.
Reality: Government is We, the People and the money it spends is on We, the People. Many people do not know that it is government that builds the roads, airports, ports, courts, schools and other things that are the soil in which business thrives. Many people think that all government spending is on "welfare" and "foreign aid" when that is only a small part of the government's budget

Small businesses say tax-cut extension won't spur hiring
U.S. President Barack Obama speaks during his news conference in the Brady Press Room of the White House in Washington, December 7, 2010.

Congressional Democrats Gloomy About Tax Cut Plan
www.npr.org The White House is faced with rebellion in the president's party against his agreement with Republicans on which tax cuts to extend. Some Democrats say they'll vote for the deal but they're not happy about it. Others will try to get deals of their own added to sweeten the package
Two key obstacles emerged Tuesday night to the passage of President Obama's tax cut compromise with the GOP. Except this time they come from the right: The influential anti-tax group Club for Growth and conservative kingmaker Sen. Jim DeMin...t (R-SC) both came out in opposition to the agreement, threatening the breadth of Republican support for the plan.

"This is bad policy, bad politics, and a bad deal for the American people," said Club President Chris Chocola in a statement. "The plan would resurrect the Death Tax, grow government, blow a hole in the deficit with unpaid-for spending, and do so without providing the permanent relief and security our economy needs to finally start hiring and growing again."

Bush Tax Cuts Reduced Total Income By $2.7 Trillion
Barney Frank's Panel Recommends $1 Trillion in Defense Cuts.

Shirley Ogilvie Fleischman "Say this out loud: "I am against helping the long term unemployed even though that is the BEST way to stimulate the economy, but I'm FOR giving an extra $100,000 to EVERY milliionaire, even though the years 2001-08 PROVED that they don't "create" jobs!"... And try not to vomit in your mouth!"

"The easiest way to cut $4 trillion from the deficit over the next 10 years is to let all Bush tax cuts expire -- the deficit commission did not even consider this option."
Michael Boyngton

Republicans Destroyed The World's Economy http://www.seeingtheforest.com/archives/2009/04/republicans_des.htm

‎'1) President Obama tripled the deficit.
Reality: Bush's last budget had a $1.416 trillion deficit. Obama's first budget reduced that to $1.29 trillion.

2) President Obama raised taxes, which hurt the economy.
Reality: Obama cut taxes. 40% of............ ...the "stimulus" was wasted on tax cuts which only create debt, which ...is why it was so much less effective than it could have been.

3) President Obama bailed out the banks.
Reality: While many people conflate the "stimulus" with the bank bailouts, the bank bailouts were requested by President Bush and his Treasury Secretary, former Goldman Sachs CEO Henry Paulson. (Paulson also wanted the bailouts to be "non-reviewable by any court or any agency.") The bailouts passed and began before the 2008 election of President Obama.
4) The stimulus didn't work.
Reality: The stimulus worked, but was not enough. In fact, according to the Congressional Budget Office, the stimulus raised employment by between 1.4 million and 3.3 million jobs.
5) Businesses will hire if they... get tax cuts.
Reality: A business hires the right number of employees to meet demand. Having extra cash does not cause a business to hire, but a business that has a demand for what it does will find the money to hire. Businesses want customers, not tax cuts.
6) Health care reform costs $1 trillion.
Reality: The health care reform reduces government deficits by $138 billion.
7) Social Security is a Ponzi scheme, is "going broke," people live longer, fewer workers per retiree, etc.
Reality: Social Security has run a surplus since it began, has a trust fund in the trillions, is completely sound for at least 25 more years and cannot legally borrow so cannot contribute to the deficit (compare that to the military budget!) Life expectancy is only longer because fewer babies die; people who reach 65 live about the same number of years as they used to.
8) Government spending takes money out of the economy.
Reality: Government is We, the People and the money it spends is on We, the People. Many people do not know that it is government that builds the roads, airports, ports, courts, schools and other things that are the soil in which business thrives. Many people think that all government spending is on "welfare" and "foreign aid" when that is only a small part of the government's budget

Gingrich: Let Rich People Decide How Long Their Tax Cuts Last thinkprogress.org
Appearing on Fox News Sunday, disgraced former House Speaker Newt Gingrich proposed an odd method for determining how long to extend the Bush tax cuts for the very wealthy — ask the very wealthy how long they want them:
Supreme Court decision to give the final say on extradition of Lula Battisti was controversial


The Supreme Court (STF) to leave the final word on the Presidency of the Republic on the extradition of Cesare Battisti, despite having allowed the expulsion was controversial. The Supreme Court held by five votes to four that Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva did not need to follow the Court's decision in extradition cases.

Voted to delegate the decision to the President ministers Carlos Ayres Britto, Carmen Lucia, Eros Grau, Marco Aurélio Mello, Joaquim Barbosa. There were dissenting opinions Cezar Peluso, Gilmar Mendes and Ricardo Lewandowski ee Ellen Gracie, who also voted to grant the application for extradition made by the government of Italy.

The debate became more intense during the announcement of the results. The ministers began to discuss whether the vote of Eros Grau was in favor or against the president's decision. Until they are interrupted by the Eros Grau. "I think the best person Pear say what I said I am. I will summarize my vote to that after no embargo declaration. I vote with the four ministers who linked the president's decision to the Supreme's decision to extradite, "said Eros Grau.

The plenary discussion continued until Eros Grau needed to be more emphatic. "To be clear, I vote as voted Justice Ayres Britto, Carmen Lucia, Joaquim Barbosa and Marcus Aurelius. I explain my vote if there was a willingness to listen. But I see that there is given the passion he has presided over the trial of this case, "he said.

The vote of Justice Carlos Ayres Britto was decisive in the trial which also granted the request for extradition made by the Italian government. "It's the president who has the last word in the extradition process," said Britto.

After voting in favor of extraditing Battisti, Mendes also said the president's decision would certainly be linked with the decision of the Supreme. In earlier decision, the Minister Carmen Lucia in 2008 when reporting the proceedings for the extradition of Chilean Sebastian Andres Ghichard Pauzoca, made it clear that the president may refuse to do the same extradition with the consent of the Supreme. In his assessment, in such cases, the Supreme Court limited itself to examining the legality and validity of the extradition request. The effective delivery of the subject to the requesting State is left to discretion of the president, "said the minister at the time.

Minister Joaquim Barbosa, who had formally voted on the issue in the previous session, the minister agreed with this position and cited to justify his decision to vote contrary to the extradition of Battisti.

On a recent trip to Italy, has signaled that President Lula will accept the decision of the Supreme Court if the Court so determines, but not said what his position would be if the Supreme Court decision refers to him about the case. "I can not discuss hypotheses about something that is on trial."

Democrat Erskine Bowles and Republican Alan Simpson, who head the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform, proposed in their final report changes that would affect almost everyone, from wage earners to people who put gasoline in their cars or hope one day to collect Social Security, Medicare, or Medicaid. It would cut 200,000 federal-government jobs by 2020, roughly 10% of the work force, and trim defense spending.
