“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
[QUOTE=Conservative;1059733497]Obama Backs Corporate Rate Cut Along With Tax Simplification - Bloomberg
Representative David Camp, a Michigan Republican who chairs the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee, said he was “disappointed” by the lack of details in Obama’s call for a tax overhaul.
“I think it could have used a little bit more on his proposals on individual tax reform,” Camp said in an interview after the speech. “Frankly, we really need more of a path forward even on the corporate side. I think we need some more concrete plans.”
Ockham: "Can you link to the plan? I'd like to read it."
Ockham: "Anyone? A link? Does a link exist?"
Conservative: "You can get a link to a speech but not to a specific plan as there was none. He said in his speech he wanted cuts to unnamed entitlements and other areas but nothing specific. That to a liberal is a plan."
Grant: "It's that missing link again."
Ockham: "So Congress formally rejected a speech? That'd be a first. So Sheik was incorrect when he said "He" (Obama) proposed a plan to Congress. And Sheik was also incorrect in saying they (Congress) rejected this phantom plan. Is that right?"
Conservative: "Sounds about right to me"
Conservative: "I don't know for sure, we will have to get that information from Sheik as apparently he has special access to Obama's phantom plan with specific cuts and actual details."
