    Debt is credit and all the efforts are not in vain, I think. Godspeed to Paul Ryan!

    Good. Its about time that a Rep. Begins to think of the people and not big buisness of America. My grandparents worked there whole life and contributed to this nation. So why take away from them. While certain companies as Exxon pay nothing to help this country. But make record profits off the backs of the tax payer. And who is it will you vote for next time? The guy in washington that took away from you and your family and protecting the wealthy few.

    It's perplexing the way Republicans don't want to tax the wealthy "job creators." Yet these same "job creators" have taken all our jobs overseas and robbed Americans of the ability to make a living – and we should feel sorry for them?

    I propose that we not raise taxes on Corporations that bring back all the jobs they have sent overseas, starting immediately. Corporations that insist on keeping foreigners employed should not get a tax cut.
