    Re: Obama Seeks to End Tax Breaks to Pay for Jobs Plan

    Why can't Republicans in congress get it through their thick skulls that in an economic time like this you must cut spending AND increase your revenue to at least reduce a deficit? It's obvious most of them have never managed a business or taken an economics course. Cutting taxes alone simply doesn't work on a problem of this magnitude.
    The GOP National Committee should change their emblem from an elephant to a condom. A condom stands up to inflation, halts production, destroys the next generation, protects pricks, and gives one a sense of security and safety while screwing others.

    why cannot socialists and liberals get it through their thick skulls that we who already pay too much taxes don't trust the government and we want to see massive spending cuts before anyone talks about higher tax rates. and the first people to pay more taxes should be those who aren't paying enough now and that isn't the rich

    There are massive spending cuts. If nothing is done by the end of the year there would be an automatic $2 trillion and some change cut in the deficit, which is roughly 1/7th of the whole deficit. And that's less than 6 months away, at that rate we won't have a deficit by the end of this decade. What other excuses can someone give to hang on to their tax breaks? Also, when does the Republican complaining ever end? Obama proposed tax credits to businesses who hire people and a cut to payroll taxes. What's so bad about that?

    how about more people stop demanding others pay for them and they start paying for themselves. Its not my fault some people are unproductive, unambitious or untalented.

    those who already pay too much income tax and all the death tax should be the last ones Obumble demands pay more taxes

    its time for the government to go on a massive diet and its time for the entitlement addicts to get a serious dose of cold turkey

    If a GOP president does it, it's called corporate welfare. These "payroll taxes" go to S.S., again if a GOP president had suggested we further cut funding for S.S. there would be massive calls for his head.

    You did state this in post #324 didnt you?(then making those who don't pay a reasonable amount of taxes pay some)

    My suggestion was a way for those scraping along at the poverty level to pay a percentage of there wages, as well those setting on a ton of dough to pay their fair share as well.Whats wrong with my idea?
