If true, and the Republicans have shafted those with incomes above $450,000.00, they are dead as a party.
I’m not in that income arena however I know doctors who are and who will cut back on services and hours to avoid getting tax raped.
“If true, and the Republicans have shafted those with incomes above $450,000.00, they are dead as a party.”
That was the media’s plan.
Since the election the news media has been blasting this “fiscal cliff” BS all over in a massive propaganda campaign. It’s all to get Republicans to agree to raise taxes. THEN the media/democrats can tell conservative voters “see Republicans raised taxes” so then conservatives give up on GOP and then the Democrats take the House and then pass Amnesty , gun control etc.
this “fiscal cliff” is all a media fabrication , a plan to destroy the GOP ( oppossition to democrats).
The media/democrats did this to Bush 1 “read my lips no new taxes”.
Was watching Fox Business Network and a GOP “Aide” has said “This deal is done” Oh goodie..higher taxes AND no spending cuts..just what Obama wanted..the GOP once again bends over and kisses Obama’s smelly behind
Boehner may get RINOs + Rats to pass this latest crap sandwich,
but it may cost him the speakership.
LOL! I’ve heard this about a thousand times over the last 20 years. This result was cast in stone in August 2011 when the Debt Ceiling deal was struck. I’m actually pretty impressed they got it up to $450K and didn’t cave for Obama’s $250K. They are 1/2 of 1/3 of the government. It’s actually a decent deal because the Dems are pissed as well. Thinking taxes weren’t going up was incredibly naive. Is it a good thing? Of course not. It goes against principle. But it will have a negligible impact on the economy and its a better deal than going over the cliff and raising taxes on everyone.
Multimillionaires are Obama voters. The GOP should stop rewarding them.
The middle class tax cuts were saved.
As for spending, its never going to be cut but Congress is never serious about that stuff.
