I do not support.

The tax would be 30% or higher.

Witness the proponents trying to claim that $1 taxed as $1.30 is a 23% tax instead of 30%, they know 30% would lose supporters.

We have a progressive tax in our Income tax. The rich pay proportionally more than the poor do. The rational behind this is that the rich are better able to pay ($100,000 is affordable to a rich person who makes $1,000,000, while $1,000 is not affordable to a poor man who makes $10,000 a year). The rich also receive a greater share of the benefits of our free enterprise system, thus they have a greater responsibility to maintain that system.

A flat tax is regressive in nature. It does not tax income, so money made and invested is not taxed. The rich would therefore pay a smaller proportion of their income in taxes than a poor person who needs to spend all he makes to just get by

The results would be devastating in my opinion.

maybe those last three were bad examples.. My point was merely that he is not ALL bad... All presidents have a big job to do, and none of them do everything right or the way we think they should.. I just do not think it is fair for some on this board to keep bashing this man, when in fact he deserves some respect for being the leader (no matter how bad some may think he is) of our Country..

Having a majority and having control are two very different things. For complete control a party must have enough votes to overcome a Presidential veto and/or enough to overcome a Senate filibuster. The Democrats, except for a brief interval in 2009, have had neither and thus were never in control. The buck doesn't stop with Bush either... the recession had numerous causes. But to say that it's Obama's fault is silly, since the meltdown occurred before he was elected. Anyone can blame the Democratic or Republican parties but in the end it the voters who has control..

  1. Renewed dialogue with NATO and other allies and partners on strategic issues.

  2. Beginning the process of reforming and restructuring the military 20 years after the Cold War to a more modern fighting force… this includes new procurement policies, increasing size of military, new technology and cyber units and operations, etc.

  3. Better body armor is now being provided to our troops

Should I list the other 100 I have???

This is a lot to accomplish in such a short amount of time. He was elected President, he wasn’t elected Jesus.

Now, let's share the blame; list all the things Congress and "religion" has done "wrong" over the last 200 years. It is only fair.
