We are totally concerned with our govement. It is toooo large and spending misappropriation abounds. Sure Ethanol supports the corn farmers so it also helps auto industry and it is destroying engine componants,from weedeaters up.We pay taxes all our lives, IF WE WORK and still pay on our retirement and farmers who work all their lives to create a farm have it taken away thru estate taxes. Terrible!! Fat cats in Washington should be Like ordinary Americans. But no they force things on the public that doesn't affect then. etc. etc.etc.

When the Democrats talk about taxing the rich, it is a revenue reducer and they know it. You can take every cent of the people who make over $250,000 and it won't make a dent in the deficit. Taxing the so called rich will merely make the Democratic machine more powerful and unemployment will keep rising.

All are important. What is scary is that Congress has to be reasonable, which might be impossible for them. We all have to pay more taxes, and we have to cut expenses, but it has to be done slowly and reasonably. We have to put the election behind us and put this country back on solid footing. That means the Republicans and Democrats have to compromise.

Truly all of these issues are very important to me, my family and our ranch. All of these if not taken care of properly and with care will hurt the farmer and rancher and could to the point of more going out of business.

If farms are not excluded from estate tax hikes, most family farms will disappear in a very few years. Talk about taxing the poor!

It is time for compromise. We did not get in this mess overnight and we won't get out of it overnight. I think it is time for us to be patriotic in other ways than when reciting the pledge or singing God Bless America ie. when paying taxes to support the tremendous infrastructure that has enabled us to create the amount of wealth in our country

Compromise is when the democrats get their way and reps. give in. The Bush tax cuts aren't to blame, when the Dems.took over house and senate in 2006 is when things started to go to hell.

We have a federal government that is desparate for money and will go to any length to get it. This administration will continue it's attack on the private sector through tax increases, regulation and Obamacare. Layoffs have already occured just since the election. Businesses will become increasingly creative in avoiding new hires. This election was a bitter pill for conservatives, but if this economic malaise continues the electorate will at some point turn on the democrats. I still believe in our wonderful country and that it will survive these times.

what really concerns me is that the election was 4 days ago and it is still a discussion. The people of America have spoken and it's time for us to band together to make sure the country as a whole recovers from the recession and jobs are created in all industries.
