Never mind the spending. We just need to tax more. Yep, that’ll do it.

Liberalism is a disease and Xlinton is the host.

Fox should be ashamed of itself for even deigning to allow this drug-using, philandering rapist a venue from which to speak his lies. He looks like he has aids.

I remember we were a young and financially struggling family in the nineties when Clinton imposed his tax increases on us.
We couldn’t pay the full bill and had to pay in installments.
George W was a breath of fresh air.

Why so your fascist big government friends can get rich off of the hard work of other people. Last time I checked I have to give up some of my time otherwise known as my life to earn a check. So you think you and your friends are entitled to enslave me for your benefit. Some how you have the right to keep me from my wife and kids. Screw you you blood sucking leach.

Dang he’s close to being accurate... We need a government that promotes growth and THEREBY creates more jobs and more taxpayers. He’s right that taxing the rich won’t help one bit.

Sure Clinton was a tragically flawed human being but he understood a hell of a lot better what was going on in the country than this complete idiot we have now.

Clinton received an advance of $15 million for his 2004 autobiography which is the biggest advance in history. He can earn up to $1 million per speaking engagement and in the first six years out of office he took home over $40 million in speaking fees

That doesn’t include the millions he funnels through the Clinton Foundation - tax free.

How about we eliminate the Federal tax and replace it with representative apportionment.

1) Congress determines the amount of taxes to be collected
2) The amount is split into two equal pots - one for the Senators and one for the Representatives
3) The pot for the Senators is divided by 100 to determine the per Senator tax bill.
4) The pot for the Representatives is divided by 435 to determine the per Representative tax bill
5) The treasury then calculates the tax liability for each state by multiplying the per Senator amount by 2 and adds to that amount the per Representative amount, calculated as the number of representatives times the per representative amount
6) That total tax liability is then divided into quarterly amounts and communicated to each state.
7) States are then free to determine for themselves what is the best tax collection method for their citizens
8) States which are more than one quarter behind are prohibited from paying their State legislature or Governor their state salaries
9) States that are more than two quarters behind are no longer allowed a vote in committee
10) States that are more than three quarters behind are no longer allowed a vote on the floor
11) States that are more than four quarters behind will have a garnishment of all tax revenues to the State

‘More taxes’ ???

We’re at the saturation point now!

Clinton is a Socialist clown in the galaxy of Socialist clowns which now populates American politics.

“Some people regard private enterprise as a predatory tiger to be shot. Others look on it as a cow they can milk. Not enough people see it as a healthy horse, pulling a sturdy wagon.” Winston Churchill

I think he’s purposely trying to sabotage ‘bammers.
I really think Clinton might be doing what the left accuses us of doing - wanting the FBP to fail.

"Raise taxes for everyone" is what he says but I'm sure somehow certain democrat constituents will be exempt or get refunds.

I’d like someone to challenge clinton and the other liberals kissing bammys azz to show how much they have invested in offshore or non-taxable entities. We all know they don’t pay nearly as much in taxes as someone who can’t afford to sock away most of their money in taxfrees - so show us. Let everyone see what hypocrits they are.

Laz, let him keep talking.

I can't. I've already sent out the order to Fox News to stop allowing him on; likewise MSNBCBSABC. The FCC has, at my direction, sent a note out that if Bill Clinton is put on the air, or even cable, that the licenses for broadcast will be pulled and the Justice Department will shut down the cable operator. Also, any mention of Bill Clinton on the internet will result in the terminåtx¿¢%A

increase taxes... increase govt power...

NEVER even TALK about cutting spending

just more bs from bjclinton and the progressives

until govt spending is below govt revenues, we will sink further into debt... devaluing the dollar even more (of course, the progressives already know this...)

right...the foundation...and this... the big kahuna

the uranium deal involving a host of shady characters

he might have made 130 million or so...

and the media...nothing...not a damn thing except one or two articles that died out

Clinton strokes a dictator/murderer in Kazakhstan, utters some kind words about said killer of 1000s and shady but known ultra liberal Canadian mining magnate and former film studio founder strikes a deal of deals for uranium concessions

yet Reagan was paid 2 million for 2 speeches in Japan and the press howled...Bush I..same howls

Clinton's and Gore's shady business deals and speeches have made both men 10 times richer than either Reagan or Bush and involving truly some despicable influence peddling that borders on illegal if not immoral

and the media...hardly one word.

these are progressives for ya....their money...every liberal I know is less generous than conservatives

Before the internet, conservative talk radio, and Reagan, I remember reading or hearing all the “experts” write and/or talk about the need for raising taxes. Whenever there was a financial crunch, these dimwits would always insist that there simply wasn’t any way around increasing taxes. For everybody. Not one of the big names (other than a rare token conservative like Goldwater or W.F. Buckley) ever said “you know what, we could probably cut a lot of worthless programs.” But I never believe these liberal clowns about anything, and the economy is no different.

"Sure Clinton was a tragically flawed human being but he understood a hell of a lot better what was going on in the country than this complete idiot we have now."

He understood nothing. His policy failings are many, among them, his failure to take the terrorist threat seriously. He and his band of thieves are the reason 9/11 happened.

In order to keep the welfare state going, you need to tax more. And it will get worse. In 1950 there were 16 workers for every retiree; today it is 3.3; and by 2030 it will be two workers for every retiree. And by 2030 one out of every five Americans will be 65 or older, twice what it is now.
