If you look at what Reagan did instead of what people believe he did, was he raised taxes on the rich. Which was followed through by Bush Sr. and Clinton. Which created a stronger dollar. When we go back to a strong dollar economic policy, which was changed under Bush for the quick start tax breaks. It works, it creates a need to produce. Which creates more GDP. It has been shown to be historically accurate throughout our countries history. As far as Reaganomics growing the economic divide, against with the tax rates that isn't nesscarily the case. It actually creates a stronger middle class in practice. Which is what Bush's Ecomonic policy failed. I agree with you on the rewritting of the tax code, many Fortune 500 companies are working to have the loopholes removed from the corporate tax code as well. They would like a flat percentage without loopholes. In my opinion I believe the individual tax code should be the same, but I'm sure I'm in the minority on that one.

"Government is corrupt and so is Obama" ... so are all of them. Doesn't matter the party, they all have their hand in the same cookie jar.

The idea of universal health care is excellent. The execution in the Affordable Health Care Act is poor. Especially from a Records Retention aspect. It needs to be reformed before being brought into action. The idea that in the long run would reduce costs, is accurate from any business aspect. But the handling of personal information as outlined in the bill is reason enough to have it overturned. The bill was well bastardized before he got to the House Floor and their lines many of its issues.

You truly are a sad individual aren't you. I guess you also beleive that are legal system is guilty until prooven innocent. You have problem putting facts to your agruments, you just enjoy the name calling.

First is "Socialist Progressive Liberal" is only naming their behavior and ideology, is a contridictive three terms. Which makes no sense, and again is just decisive name calling. You are getting good with it by the way. And as far the as the constitution side, I'm well versed in the Constitution. I do not need to make up names to defend such a well written document. Maybe you should take time to learn it and the men who wrote it.
Delaying what? We have no proof that they were the only groups, which by law should not be non-profit. As I stated before, if they are the only group and not groups on the other side were looked into then that is an issue. If you were reading my replies instead of just waving your anti Obama flag you would have seen. Then the appropriate punishments should be in place, but not until an investigation is taken place. Not a made for tv investigation with half the information which is currently happening in the media. We do not know all the facts, if we did then we wouldn't be dealing with this partial information issue. The leak that provided the media with the information was very pointed in what was released. But that apparently doesn't matter to you, because it was anti-Obama. It was a specific group leaked, to a specific group. This was leaked for the reaction of people like you. Instead of logical people who realize their might be a problem that needs investigation. People want to rush to judgement instead of research.

Is that what you have name calling? That's it isn't it. Where are you facts and statistics? As far as your assumption not an Obama supporter, never voted for the man. So there goes one of your opinions. As far as history, history is history it is in stone. You do not like the facts that are presented through history so you go with another opinion "misguided conclusions". Not misguided, just fact. No need to be desperate when the statistic and factual information is on my side. But then again looking at your agrument, facts aren't big for you.
Private Sector growth has increased and unemployment is at it's lowest level since 2008. Both unemployment (-.1%) and long term unemployment (-5.9%) numbers have droped(BLS). Now the public sector is taking a hit losing 11,000 jobs last month, the private sector increased by 293,000 (BLS data). Now high school graduates having an issue finding a job has increased from 11.1% to 11.6%, but unemployment by those with college degree is only 3.9%. Corporations have been recording their highest gains in the last 3 years in a number of different industries. The average hourly wage has increased 1.9% since Dec which is low, that number is suppressed through public sector which change has been negative (Sequestor). But we know that Obama is the cause of all government spending, oh that would be Congresses job.
I'm not a Obama supporter, I'm a supporter of Facts. Which you are choosing to ignore.

So it's about punishing his enemies? None were actually punished for any wrong doing. Do I think all of those "non-profits" should be check, absolutely. If only the non-profits which are against taxation were checked then that is an issue. Do we know that a Republican Elected IRS Official ran what he was doing to the White House? Other than doctored documentation from the "media" we do not know that.
What taxes did Obama raise thus far, none. The Congress and him let the tax credits that Bush put into place expire, which should have happened long ago. It is called Economics, Reagan, Bush Sr. and Clinton knew those tax rates needed to be in place to help the economy grow. And guess what, it's working. Why because businesses/people have to produce more for the same gains. Also mean the productivity per dollar goes up. Following basic economic principle that made Reaganomics work, makes an economic strategy of a stronger dollar. So Obama is wrong for following a Republican Strong Dollar principle, right?
I'm going to guess you have watch one of the many "informational" DVD's the Republican party was sending me during the election by your other claims. I watched them and then fact checked them. I'm going to guess you didn't do the same. Start learning our history and also start doing some fact checking.

Quit listening to talk radio and start reading some history. You will start to realize the "facts" you are getting from both sides of the isle are incorrect. You obviously follow the name calling trend as well "Socialist Progressive Liberals" which are three terms that contridict each other. How does that moniker even make sense. Obviously you currently hate our current Command and Chief which is well within your rights. At least hate him with a factual agrument. I have my issue with our current president, but I have more issues with the preversion of our government through both parties. But it is the one sided ignorant partisanship of the citizenship that is allowing this to happen.

We are judging this on a slanted scale. Did the Obama misrepresent what they knew, so far according to the information that has been released through the "investigation", no. Only one paragraph in one document has changed from what was told to us before. Now I said when it happend that we should wait until their was a full investigation, before pleading guilt. But unlike Clinton and Bush, when these attacks happened on their watch did we have other politicans and "news" groups wanting full report. I do fault them for announcing the partial information they had at the time, and they should have waited that is on them. But as the information that has now been found through the investigation, they were honest with what information they had at the time (which was partial at best). They should have waited for full information, but the news and political landscape should allow for our administration (regardless of party) the time to gather information.

I was agreeing in the long form. I feel that our media's 24 hour cycle and need to break stories first to gain ad revenue has caused the biggest issues without our citizenship. People feel more empowered with less than half the facts. And both parties are using "scandals" as a negotiating tool instead of doing what is best for the citizenship of this country.
