I am curious about something and would like for some people to explain something to me. If Barrack Hussein Obama is going to cut taxes where is going to get the money for all of his changes? People say they will vote for him because he is about change. How is he going to make these changes without the necessary funds? I would like everyone's opinion. It doesn't matter how you are going to vote. If you don't know where he is going to get the money, please speculate. It will not hurt you to think a little. I would like to thank everyone in advance for reading as well as participating in this discussion. Thanks Much.

I believe he is going to take it from the wealthiest in the country.

But the rich people have enough money to relocate.

SND you did bring a new point to the surface. They will hide or shelter their money until they have better options. And some of them have more than enough money. Oprah doesn't care. She probably owns 10% of the world. If she wants it she buys it. This is off topic but we can claim some odd things. When I was doing my taxes last year I noticed that if you replace your furnace you can claim the deduction.

Thats all talk,he won't change anything...What makes anyone think hes so special that he can work wonders?...I really do not like this man & if he does change things i think it will be for the worst & not for the better....All these polititions are always going to change something,and its all just a lot of talk.I have NEVER seen anyone running for president that does not say "WE are going to CHANGE things,However it rarely ever happens...I hope & pray this man does not win..He really scares the Hell out of me...

I think he has served 144 days as a senator and now for some reason he is qualified to be president. Unfortunately these days you have to choose the best of the worst. The people capable of being the president wouldn't step foot in the white house because of all of the hassle. McCain picked a termagant as a running mate. She might do a good job.

Real scary to have a man who came from modest roots and thinks everyone should have a shot at the American Dream to be president.

He is a politician. Big companies might contribute. I think it is a trick to get votes.

I believe he wants to tax big business. That means either more companies will leave costing more Americans jobs or big business will raise prices to make up for the losses which will cost Americans money. He should cut down the federal government. The fed doesn't need to be so big. State governments should have the power and by law the fed should just be there as a checks and balance system. Unfortunately the federal government has grown too big and we all know who pays them. His talk of change loss a lot of credibility when he selected a career politician as his running mate. I think he has big ideas that simply aren't practical and he his changing his stance on many issues as he sees how the public reacts.

I don't think a lot of people realize that no matter what, the people will foot the bill. He reminds me of Jimmy Carter in a way. All of the hopes and dreams and no way to pull them off.

Tax big business, give more incentives and decrease tax on small business. Restructure our economy so that we are no longer slaves to corporations and gain bac some resemblance of our culture. It would be great if more local businesses could afford to lease out all the space Walmart has bought. Drive out the corps and rebuild I say.

That sounds good but what happens when you tax the big businesses and they leave. Thus leaving millions of people without jobs? It would be great if it could be all locally owned businesses. No chains. But I don't think there will be enough jobs for everyone. I plan to have more retail space than Wal-mart. Currently I am looking the right location to start a nursery. You wouldn't believe how hard it is to find 5 acres that are not covered by trees on a steep hill.

You ask a valid question which should warrant a valid and well thought out answer. But I'll take a stab at answering. More than likely, he'll borrow this money from our good old lenders who don't mind staking on us. Which is China. Then again my thing is, you can't cut then make changes, so more than likely if he does this in country, have taxes high long enough so we can institute the changes, then go for tax cuts the following years. just a thought. thanks.

Unfortunately once people accept higher prices they don't go down. Hopefully if something like that were put into effect, they will decrease the taxes.

Okay first of all he may say he is wanting ot cut taxes, but the fact is no matter who says what our taxes are going to increase...as long as there are wars, importing of oil, etc. There will be tax increases. He also has sponsored bills that will increase all AMericans taxes to help end global poverty, whether he makes it into the office or not. Read up on the guy. he is not what he seems to present himself as to people. And I am not just speaking on the private affairs in his life, like the Rev Wright, I am speaking of his political life. I would not support anyone who would smile in my face to gain a vote and then pull the rug out from under me as I walk away. If you know you have a flip flopper (McCain) you know what he is and where he may or may not go. If you have a sly one you cannot trust them as far as you can throw them....no matter how good they look in a suit. To answer your question....most likely taxation cause like you said how else can he promise this.

Obama being associated with Rev. Wright was a mistake. No politician in their right mind would attend that church. What was Obama thinking? And is he going back to that church if he wins? Anyone with any sense would know not to vote for anyone that would go to that church. Why should the USA who is in debt tax their people to end global poverty. He makes $4 million a year. It would be easy for he and some of his friends to give up a million a year for global poverty. Why should a family making less than $75,000 have to contribute to fight global poverty? There are a lot of Americans who are living close to poverty. If Obama wants to do something noble he should donate his own money. He got it wrong. Playing Robin Hood is not a good idea.

I saw the same big speech, he promises to end the war and cut taxes. He might get the war down, but that would only be because pull out plans are already on the drawing board, he will just take credit for something that is already in the works. The taxes thing is going to be a bust as far as I am concerned, for two reasons, one is taxpayers got money back already with the stimulus checks and there is no way Obama will be able to come up with money like that to cut taxes without first collecting it. I know of one way he could get the money, but lord knows it would never happen. I was half expecting him to say he had found a cure for cancer and aids since he seems to be omnipotent.

I just typed a bunch of stuff and it disappeared when I hit post. It is never the same the 2nd time. Sarah Palin, McCain's running mate, got money from the oil companies to give to Alaska residents. Everyone got a $1,200 check. She might be good for this country. Did you know they might have a cure for AIDS? I heard about it within the past month on the news. Some doctors in Houston found a way to kill the virus through a protein. It has worked on lab tests. Which means it kills the virus in mice, rats, guinea pigs and who knows what other poor creature went through the test. I copied it this time.

We should just sit back and say, it is to lte to do anything because that it what we have done in th past and it has gotten us so far. Americans need to grow some courage.

You say "we need to grow some courage". It is more like turn off all of the lights and lets play darts. I have a dream and a hope for change. But I am not betting on blind hope. That is ridiculous. Obama barely has any senate experience. I am discussing his plan. Obama is the one who thinks the money is going to fall from the sky.

Didn't BHO say in one of his speeches when he is elected money will start growing on trees? It sure made a lot of environmentalists happy when he said that.

He must have the seeds to the magic money tree.
