    Raising taxes isn't going to solve the deficit.

    a tax-hike is where the tax-rate is increased for certain income levels.
    Semantics. When people pay more taxes, it's a tax hike. Marco Rubio put it perfect when he said that we don't need more taxes, we need more taxpayers.

    tax-hike traditionally means an increase in their PIT rate.

    That's what Libbos want people to think, but it's not reality.

    Taking more money out of peoples's pockets, right now, is a bad idea. Personally, I can't afford to pay more taxes. I sure as hell can't afford to pay taxes on money that I don't have, anymore.

    Obama's own 2012 budget calls for 9.5 trillion in debt over the next 10 years... piling on more debt in 10 years than we accumulated in over 220 years.
    but IIRC, GDP growth had been stalled for years while spending was still climbing at a normal rate(out of control without restriction or retribution).. we barely missed meeting the requirements for a recession for a long time before obama..

    Deficit spending has zero to do with revenue income. And certain;y nothing to do with compromise.

    if I pay more, my taxes are being raised. Play all the word games you want, but at the end of the day, it means less money in my pocket.
