When Obama won & Dems had control of Congress, why no taxing the Rich as they always preached?
in Politics

Imagine what Democrats could have accomplished when Obama won & had control of Congress. They could have finally implemented their decades of election promises to their low income base.
Tax the Rich, Tax the Rich, Tax the Rich, this was their never ending election cry!
For two years the Democrat party had control of the Senate, the House, and Presidency. Lets take a look at their accomplishment with the same issues they have railed about for decades.

So called Climate Change - Nothing accomplished!

Taxing the Rich to supposedly fund their Socialist goals - Nothing accomplished! You see, Democrats are Rich also! It's all talk!

Black people moving up the ladder, getting jobs - Nothing accomplished!

People on food stamps - record numbers signing up for the program

Border control - kick the can down the road

Terrorism - ISIS came to power

National Debt - DOUBLED in eight years!

Economy - on life support for eight years, even while interest rates were kept at zero %.

As most of us all know, the Democrat Party never wants to actually implement any of their pet issues. They regurgitate these same talking points decade after decade purely for political purposes. They understand that keeping Americans tied to Government dependence is their bread and butter.

The one thing they focused on in those two years of control was forcing through their hideous healthcare plan - Obamacare was as bad as every Republican knew it would be. Remember when Obama told us we could keep our doctors and our Premiums would go down? The working man could not afford the HUGE premiums and deductibles. As always with Democrat programs, the only people benefiting were the Left's low income base. Pandering to their base! That is always the priority of the Democrat Party. The working man can go bankrupt for all they care!

Look what Trump accomplished with those same two years of Republican control and no Democrat support! This is what true leadership looks like when the Party truly wants to help fix America's problems.

  • At the time Obama took over there were things that HAD to be done. First things first was never more important! It took three years to even turn around the damage the previous conservative administration had done or allowed! The auto industry had to be saved …. millions of jobs at risk, and some conservatives were fighting to let it go bankrupt! The banking industry had to be regulated and MADE to follow those regulations …. the ones that they had been allowed to ignore, putting U.S. into the conservative mess we were in! Wall Street had to be reigned in!
    You are like a child suffering from nightmares! You make up superheroes … imagined ones …. to protect you from the imagined "monsters" coming from the left! Time to grow up and face the world as it really is, little one! The REAL monster is the one you are standing with! He's about two grades ahead of you, and a middle school bully! :rage:

    Obama was all about himself, and pandering to his Liberal constituents.

    While the rest of the non Obama Liberals, tolerated he being the President.

    Being that the rest of the country was put on hold, while Obama did his thing.

    And the catch is this, his fellow Liberal lawmakers, and some of the Liberal news media outlets, catered to Obama during his time in Office.

    And even today, he's being catered to.

    Taxing the rich is not as easy as most people think. If you talk about millionaires/billionaires, then the majority of their net worth is usually put in highly non-liquid assets. Capital gains tax is notoriously harmful to the economy, yet this is one of the few ways to reasonably tax income specifically from those assets; most other ways of doing that (such as VAT or sales tax) affect all other types of income as well.

    In practice, the rich are the ones providing resources for the economical development, and taxing them affects everyone, especially the people working for them or for the companies the assets of which are owned by them. The idea that it is easy to tax the rich in order to benefit the poor is a common mistake by people who have a simplistic outlook on the economy.

    @Dee Ah, the Judgmental Left once again demonizing Christians who do not twist the Bible to fit the Left's political correct dogma. You say you like "real" Christians who support the barbarity of abortion and deny the Science of Biology.

    I will never be one of those new age "real" Christians because God said he knows us in the wonb! God siad that Homosexuaoity is a sin. You go ahead and keep demonizing people who actually believe the word of God, and go ahead and keep supporting those who are creating their new age Christian cult.

    Go ahead and keep lying about how Bible believing Christians do not care for the poor.
    Bible believing Christians do more to voluntarilly help the poor than any other groups on the planet.

  • I'm pretty sure both major parties are guilty of taxing the American public. They're both communist agitators as far as I'm concerned, and most of the American public now also. Nobody wants individual liberty in this country anymore.

    Spoken like a true communist cum sock. I guess for you, it's OK that the republicans also want to steal all our wealth from us. I doubt that you even live in the US, and I wonder if you are just a troll bot that was programmed in Moscow. Embracing the collectivist ideals of either major party is an embrace of communist infiltration. The current administration has done nothing to address the national debt, and only seeks to make it larger. We as American taxpayers (by we I mean true citizens, not you) have to pay that debt back and you support a party that doesn't want to stop making the debt larger. You are no less communist than the rest and your faith is in Moscow, not the US. Embracing the collectivist ideals of Christianity are also against the ideals of the US and rejecting greed as a founding value of American doctrine is what Christians do like the communists reject greed. It would be nice if just once a supposed American could actually have an understanding of the US constitution and live by its values instead of the values of Moscow or Jerusalem.

    Perhaps you should just ignore this site because most of us here have an understanding of reality. Since when has this administration been trying to cut the national debt? It's one thing to be a communist, but it's another thing to be an ignorant and naive communist. The national debt has gone up by 3 trillion since this president was in office. It doesn't seem like the republicans have any intention of cutting the national debt, and communist lemmings like you just go right along with it because they're republicans, and it's OK when republicans are communists. I think a better name for you is We_are_acommunist. Try learning the constitution before you pretend to speak like you know what you're talking about. Thanx brohan. Get f u c k e d, communist cum sock.
