Rephrase: Have tax rates fallen for 95 percent of Americans? Ok.

Only time will tell, he essentially instituted the Stupak amendment into the Senate bill, Democrats that don't think it will have an effect are going to be in for a rude awakening.

Who cares what Republicans declare alive and dead? They don't control the agenda. Bottom line: Kerry said no cap and trade, there are already smaller regulations on the table. I know the far right loons want absolutely no emissions regulations and subsidies for fossil fuels instead but that's clearly not gonna happen.

I didn't abandon that at all ... this is a particularly dumb comment on your part since Bush created the FY09 budget. Bush is responsible for 1.5 trillion of the FY10 increases ... Obama is responsible for 800 billion. Bush's 1.5 trillion was spent on nothing redeeming to America, Obama's was spent on ending the recession and giving America some much needed improvements. It really is a no brainer.
