    Can somebody PLEASE explain to the American people that the President isn't proposing to extend the Bush tax credits for everybody but "wealthy Americans", but that he is extending the tax cuts on EVERYBODY'S income up to $250k. (These examples of an urban family earning $250k trying to put kids through school is bogus – they don't pay one dime more on that $250k; only income OVER $250k)

    This was a lame attempt at an interview with an absolutely insane attempt at believing in Ron Paulsnpolitics. you Madame have become a moron. A "mor-Ron" more tax cuts close loopholes to lower the rates avoid taxing the wealthy because more can be gained taxing all. Start by saying end all the tax cuts from bush any president that sends checks to people while at war deserved to be called an idiot or worse. You continue the claim by supporting Ron Paul style politics a man who earned his doctorate thanks to the space program but. Would now shut that same door he used so that others could not follow? Try. Your brand of intelligence on HBO where it cannt hurt actual people or find a. Better and more enlightened crew to work with because you do republicans nor democrats nor the general public any good with your ideas. You were given a chance and have chosen the worst possible path to take intellectually and economically one can only assume that ratings are of chief concern or you and your team really are that out of touch. It's sad gave you a chance on hijabs and with sarkozy and now with taxes and the American economy and in each case you walk away with more blood on your hands so understand its not newsroom you represent from your sister network but more likely that vampire show and even that is a step up as it at one time was about human rights and minorities but like you it lost its way. Sad really, a chance the intelligence the opportunity and with it less than nothing to make a real difference just a mash up of talking points lacking any coherent theme.
