Response to Nye Bevan (Original post)

6. It is still not as high as it was when Bush came into office and our

budget was balanced.

And that is utterly no excuse for cutting Social Security, veterans' and other benefits.

Put the tax rate on the rich back to where it was before Bush fought his two wars and gave the rich their huge tax break.

Then we will watch our debt dwindle. And while we are done with it, tax capital gains, money hidden overseas and the incomes and bonuses of people on Wall Street.

Plus, get regulators who will come down hard on the banks and make sure they do not get the economy into any more trouble.
