The so-called Bush tax cuts, which were almost passed in the last century, are being vilified by the Obama administration as having busted the government budget and led to unsustainable deficits. The president might want to consult his own economic advisers, whose data suggest otherwise.
Read the whole thing. There is some really good information there.
***From Politics for Average Americans:
Who goes to school to become poor? Who becomes a professional to earn less money? Who spends countless hours building a small business or earning salaries or hourly wages to lose the rewards? Who spends years after college doing graduate work to improve the chances for a promotion in hopes of acquiring fewer assets over a lifetime? So far, the only person I can find is Barack Obama.
With the latest proposal for a “Wealth Tax,” the president has taken a position never seen before under our Constitutional form of government. In pertinent part, the 5th Amendment guarantees that no person shall “be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”
When a person works an entire lifetime to build security for his or her family and the government arbitrarily takes the fruits of that labor to provide for public entitlement programs, that is unconstitutional. The entire argument has no basis in American law.
Indeed. However, our president and his party have shown that they have nothing but disdain for American law which prevents them from doing whatever they please.
***This is where we're heading: The Sadistic Brutality of England's Government-Run Healthcare.
Sick children are being discharged from NHS hospitals to die at home or in hospices on controversial ‘death pathways’. Until now, end of life regime the Liverpool Care Pathway was thought to have involved only elderly and terminally-ill adults. But the Mail can reveal the practice of withdrawing food and fluid by tube is being used on young patients as well as severely disabled newborn babies.
This is where the Democrats are taking us, people. Open your eyes.
***2/3 of millionaires left Britain to avoid tax hike. Well, duh. I would, too.

***George H.W. Bush in stable condition. Godspeed, Mr. President.
Former U.S. President George H.W. Bush remains in stable condition at a Houston hospital, but a lingering cough related to bronchitis likely will keep him there through the weekend.
Methodist Hospital spokesman George Kovacik said Saturday there is no change in the status of the 88-year-old Bush from earlier in the week. But Jim McGrath, a spokesman for the 41st president, said "he still has the cough and we're now not expecting him to be discharged this weekend."
