I like Thad McCotter. I've met with him, spoke with him, and had lunch with him before. He's intelligent, and he's outspoken. I actually talked to him about doing this video and this presentation. My opinion to him was that it was a waste of his (and the taxpayers) time to do a presentation like that. If he's going to offer up insults to the other party, the least he can do is offer solutions to the problems they bring. His statement was that sometimes you need to shake things up a little bit and step on a few toes to get your point across.

I can see why you like this video, because it has a bit of dry political humor. It provides entertainment. However, we're not paying politicians to be entertaining, we're paying them to solve the issues of this country. I'm sad that I'm not in Thad's voting district any more, but at the same time, I wish he would have found better uses for his time addressing congress.

If you want to see an example of a GOOD video by Mr McCotter, watch this one.

Yes, since it can not be proven, it is not fact, it is opinion.

Did you know that the top 1% of wage earners make roughly 20% of the income? Did you know that the wealthiest 1% controls nearly 40% of the wealth in this country?

If so Obama wants to push for a short term reduction and wanted to do a 1 year reduction.
Yes. I don't know who started calling it a payroll tax. My W2 labeled it "Social Security Tax". And you got it dead wrong about Obama on this one. Obama wanted it for the full year. The in the Senate would only give him 2 months. This is how the Senate has operated all year, don't solve the problem now, just kick it further down the road.

The administration doesn't pass budgets, they propose them. It's Congresses job to pass them.

Tax rates are near historic lows right now, so the economy should be booming based on that theory. There seems to be little evidence that that theory works.

No, it's horrible planning. And it was horrible when Reagan, Sr. Bush and Jr. Bush did it.

Besides the rich do not have enough money to put a dent in what this president has spent.
Wait, I thought he wanted to raise the taxes on the rich?
