Just post "on topic" and stops the personal attacks and insults.

Following your example?

Let's see again, that is $75 billion out of $1.2 TRILLION.... Or less than what 7% or so of the annual deficit.

Did I get that right??


No, you are once again not reading what I have just said with emphasis. $75B is, as I recall, the figure for reversing the Bush tax cuts *for the wealthy alone*. The figure for *all* of the Bush tax cuts is considerably higher. E.g., in this chart

Together the Bush tax cuts represent a sizable contribution to the deficit. Not *all*, never said that.

While I agree that now is not the time to repeal those on lower earners I do think they are going to have to go away for them eventually.
