"Revenue," according to Obama, means taxing the rich.

What Obama and Democrats don't understand, is that tax cuts provide capital needed to start new businesses.

And the leftist 0bamabuttkissers fall right in line,
using the “Newspeak” of the left to try to DECEIVE US.

That epitome of an 0bamabuttkisser, Eugene Robinson, today used words to the effect that the republicans refuse to accept “new revenues” in the debt ceiling negotiations.

I DESPISE leftists and their deception.

He’s just giving another campaign speech and this way the networks cover it wall to wall..........
Disgusting half a man! Wouldn’t like listening to him even if he weren’t in a position to ruin us all.
Can’t someone kick him out of office early? We can’t withstand his lack of leadership another 18 months.

No, raising the income tax rate does not significantly increase taxes on the truly wealthy. Wealth is in assets—not income. They can shelter income. Raising the tax rates penalizes high earning professional and small business people. THEY ARE NOT RICH. Obama will not screw the power broker class of Buffett, Jamie Diamon, Bill Gates, Jeff Imelt, and all of the pother fat cat RATS.

I may be a rare Conservative in that I wouldn’t mind seeing taxes raised a bit if they would cut spending. However, they WON’T, so...I’m totally against raising taxes. They can’t be trusted with more money (assuming revenues would go up).

As far as cutting “corporate loopholes” I’m all in favor of. The overall rate should be cut, and ALL loopholes should be ended. Cut the rate to 17% or so, and ALL companies pay that.

Cut all the damn subsidies too....

You are 100% wrong- tax cuts don't "PROVIDE CAPITAL".

The money is theirs, taxing it away REMOVES CAPITAL and the ability to create jobs

Right idea, wrong terminology

This is what Sarah has stressed over and over. They have a small business and know the work and sacrifice that goes into it only to be taxed (and regulations/fines/fees imposed) by those less ambitious. Our country was built on small businesses, the blue collar worker. Who doesn’t love America? Barry and ilk.

The term “Making money” is meaningful to America ... In earlier days, the only source of money was outright theft, legalized theft (aka “taxes” or printing presses), inheritance, handouts, etc.

I would like to see a flat tax- 10% acros the board and EVERYONE PAYS IT.

Government workers should not pay taxes. They are paid out of tax money so that is stupid- just pay them less (a LOT less)

Yes poor people too- they use roads and bridges too (and MORE government services than everyone else)

LET THE GOVERNMENT FIGURE OUT HOW TO LIVE WITH ONLY 10%

Shoot all tax lawholes
(ok that last one is optional if they can prove they can become productive members of society- and not other kinds of lawholes)

“the rich” means any couple making $250K

(who are lucky to be taking home half of what they earn after federal state local and other taxes)

I believe he understands this perfectly. But his methods and goals are destruction. Nothing else.

Obama and his Nationalsist SOcialists cannoty seize more dictatorialpower while the rich still exist in America. He has pulled down executives usingthe language and demonstrations of hate.

Now he wants to destroy the wealth of those who have it.They are in the way with theoir zzcorportae Jets and their control of our evolving nationalist socialsit economy where government is the BIGGEST BUSINESS.

And Obama intends to do it under the image of Robin of the ‘Hood? Rob the bitches and give to the boors?

Isn’t ANYONE in politics willing to stand toe to toe with this POS and duke it out?

I agree. To the modern ‘Rats taxes are not about revenue, they are about punishing the people they hate. Obama understand perfectly that raising taxes will do nothing but punish people who work.

increasing taxes does not bring in more money

since the fedgov is in ALL transaction, then all the money goes through the fedgov. increasing taxes only increases the rate at which all the money comes in... not the amount.

to increase the amount of money that comes into the fedgov, more money has to come INTO the US.

address the trade deficit. flip it so more comes in then goes out... and then we’ll have a chance to actually change the situation

Government type like all democrats and Obama don’t like small businesses since it is harder to control people versus having everyone working for a large corporation. Contrary to “popular opinion”, democrats love big business !

"What Obama and Democrats don't understand, is that tax cuts provide capital needed to start new businesses."

There are two types of Democrats, Democrat Leaders and their flock, the Democrat Masses. The leaders are evil and not dumb, for they know that every untaxed penny left in the hands of the "rich" doesn't just sit in bank vaults but is reinvested. These leaders know that the prosperity that this re-investment causes will find its way to their "flock" and they will loose their grip on them. Their followers have bought the class warfare spiel and if they are allowed to climb into prosperity they will stand up and walk away from their control.

The Democrat leaders are socialist pigs that want government to equalize society, so long as it doesn't equalize them. These leaders are pigs that walk on two feet and fill the troughs for their followers. Their followers also pigs, but they walk on all fours and all they know is how to eat from the trough. They are not evil, for they only know what their leaders have taught them. All the other animals (including us) are expected to pay for what goes into the trough, as is evidenced by a tax proposed on cats in San Diego recently! What I'd like to know is how the Donkey became their party mascot?

Obama doesn’t understand the people themselves are better spenders and ‘distributers’ or their own money than government. Marxist putz is what we’re stuck with.

My gripe was not with you Old Navy. I am just so sick of hearing RATS talk about “taxing the rich”, when what they really mean is taxing people who are trying to make a living. The TRULY RICH contribute to RAT campaigns thus get favorable treatment in the tax code. NO ONE SEEMS TO UNDERSTAND THE DISTINCTION.

THEY ARE NOT STUPID, THEY KNOW EXACTLY WHAT IT WILL DO. You are giving them the benefit of the doubt. Truth is they are very into bringing America down. Hard to believe. Yes! Just look at everything he has done.

It is a plan to allow the take over of America. Whether via dictatorship, or a totalitarian control and tyranny. They have make HUGE inroads to this end.

God help America in this day. Bind the evil intended for America. Restore us to our former faith in thee, forgive us our trespasses and turn us back to thee, in Jesus name, Amen.
