The most important thing is the middle class and lower are not paying more taxes. I expected some legal laundering for corp amerika.

Well one can only hope these are on the chopping block in two months when our brilliant leaders tackle the spending reductions. Gots 8 of them right here for starters...

Here is a link to a pie chart and graph which puts in a "picture" what the news stories leave out of their words.

obama had to buy off those big contributors that got him re-elected.

This deal is less than perfect, but as Gene says "one can only hope these are on the chopping block in two months when our brilliant leaders tackle the spending reductions."

Let's get real....all Americans want to pay less taxes. Large corporations provide millions and millions of jobs to Americans as well as providing important benefits to these employees. I believe they should receive tax breaks for being the job engines in our country.

When our government penalizes the rich with tax hikes, like Obamacare, it rears its ugly head in high unemployment.

Capitalism built America. Capitalism is the only thing that will save our country in the end.

My liberal friends voted for the people who injected lots of this pork into the bill and for the guy who robo-signed it. Isn't it great to have true leadership in this country! BTW, this list missed some of the most expensive stuff. Such optimism Lynn and Gene! Wanna bet it only gets worse? We need to slash spending and destroy loopholes, not add to it and the debt ceiling is a great place to begin -if they still have any brass in DC.

Noted. I'm just disgusted. Pay off Disney and GoldSux, but let those affected by Hurricane Sandy rot....yeah, the GOP is just full of love for their fellow human beings. As long as they're corporations or banks. Throw the bums out!
