The tax cuts you mention have allowed thousands upon thousands of small business owners to expand their businesses and provide millions of new jobs.


When certain politicians refuse to cut taxes, and tell us they will use the money to create jobs, the following is what we get:


"Shovel-ready was not as ... uh .. shovel-ready as we expected."___ Obama, June, 2011

JWK


"To lay with one hand the power of the government on the property of the citizen [a working person’s earned wage] and with the other to bestow upon favored individuals, to aid private enterprises and build up private fortunes [our Washington Establishment’s Solyndra, Chevy Volt, Fisker, Exelon swindling deals] is none the less a robbery because it is done under forms of law and called taxation."____ Savings and Loan Assc. v. Topeka,(1875).
Umm, yeah, a little but not so much:

How strong have job gains been since the tax bill passed?

There were Democratic Leaders in Batista's Cuba, & they were promising free cheese to somebody? Who were the leaders - did they have a party? & where did the free cheese come from? - TMK, Cuba isn't big on dairy, then nor now. (Although curiously, Fidel was very enthusiastic about Cuba producing dairy - but that was when the USSR subsidized the Cuban economy. Uncle Ivan has called it quits, & the milk's soured now.) I've glanced through here & there, but I don't see any mention of a Democratic kind of party operating in Cuba during Batista's reign.

Fulgencio Batista won the general election in 1940 for president and ran under the People's Socialist Coalition banner.

The Democrat Leaders promise for free cheese doesn’t work in Cuba, doesn’t work in Venezuela ___ it only works for corrupted politicians who confiscate and then redistribute “free cheese” in order to buy votes and remain in power.

Batsita was a dictator in bed with the American based Mafia families that ran the casinos & much of the vice in Cuba.Period.
What he CLAIMED he was does not mean jack-shit.
Name a guy moronic enough to run representing a party called "Brutal Dictators For Life, Inc."

He probably also thinks that the Democratic People's Republic of Korea is a Democratic Republic and that The People's Republic of China is a republic too.

As I recall, Batista was kinda Progressive in his first term, but in his second (after the coup he led against the president) he turned very much dictatorial. Lots of crony capitalism, skimming off the top of deals, think Saddam Hussein in the bad ol' days in Iraq. & I believe Batista came out of the Cuban military - a kind of junta @ first, perhaps? That hardly makes him a Democrat - or @ least in the US tradition, the military is under the control of the Commander in Chief, a civilian; & funded by Congress.

But to gain power he ran under the People's Socialist Coalition banner. It's the lure of government cheese which is used to con the people.
