Bernie Sanders On Tavis Smiley - Bush Tax Cuts

This clip is way too political for me, and I don't often agree with Sanders, unless he's talking about Bernanke, but he strikes a note here.

I would have no problem with the 2-year extension had it been paid for - balanced by commensurate cuts in federal spending.  The Pentagon would be a good place to start.  But there were no spending cuts.  Congress couldn't find the balls guts.  So the tax cuts should have been allowed to expire.  

The 2-year increase to the deficit because of the extension will be approximately $700 billion, about the price of TARP.  The easy fix, that won't hurt anyone but the military, is to cut the Defense budget by 50% over the next 5 years. 

I think the neo-cons just bombed my computer.

If you are planning a mortgage refinance then you should search online for "123 Mortgage Refinance" before you decide they found 3.25% refinance with bad credit history and also did instant analysis of my mortgage.

Out Behind the Woodshed!


Mr. Sanders, my hat's off to you.

I disagree with your prescriptions for a fix, but I'll be damned if you didn't just take the so-called "Free Market" folks out back, beat them within an inch of their lives and then assault 'em in the back door for good measure.
