    Bill Kristol: “It won’t kill the country” to raise taxes on millionaires

    Cut expenses by a third and then raise taxes to pay down the debt. Seems fair to me.

    Only 5% of the yearly deficit. Brought to you by the party of one idea.

    1/20 of the problem solved. Name one other single, painless action that can solve 1/20th of the problem (I suppose you could say cut the defense budget by 10%... that would do it... come to think of it, do both and you have solved 10% of the problem) OK, so you raise taxes on the wealth and cut the defense budget by 10% and now you are off to a good start with very little pain.

    .... real progress... much better than the other party that wanted to solve the budget problem by cutting taxes and raising defense budget, which would have been a big step in the direction of making larger deficits.

    Holy ****! Are some conservatives actually opening their eyes? Are they finally banking away from this "no taxes on the rich" bull****? Are they finally gonna sacrifice the interests of the richest of the rich for the rest of the American public?
    I think there is another thread on this

    It wouldn't kill the country if someone snuffed Bill Kristol

    we need a flat tax-and this idiocy would go away

    The talk of Obama raising taxes on the rich is one of the many lies of the campaign.

    Obama absolutely opposed putting ANY ceiling on how much special tax deductions the super rich can take.

    That’s why I say … raise the taxes on the wealthy like they want, keep saying they have stole their wealth, keep the class warfare that Obama and is flock of sheep have started.

    The wealthy, know how to use the tax system to their benefit, they have already had about enough of the foul mouthing . Hit them only with a tax increase, and they will reduce their tax liabilities for the next five or ten years, buy investing their money in tax shelters that won’t give a pay out for 5 or ten years. I’m betting that the first full year after the tax hikes take effect, government revenue drops

    Liberals will never fall on their sword to give up on the spending cut issue. Without drastic spending cuts, we are absolutely doomed. Democrats have always lied about spending cuts, they lied to Reagain and they will lie now. Their talk of spending cuts is pure lip service. Until spending cuts are first implemented, I don't support tax increases.

    Giving a government more money to fix their money problems is the same thing as giving an alcoholic more booze to fix their drinking problem.
