    Fundamentally, there is absolutely NO difference from $400 Billion coming into the government through deduction removal, or tax increase. They both raise the effective rate a person pays, so this is purely political BS.
    Yeah there is. Removing the home deductions and other such things on working class people so you don't have to raise rates on the privileged rich is a big difference.

    The pure political BS is found in not admitting that reality.

    But, that's a topic for another thread.

    Feel free to explain how not taxing enough got us into debt without mentioning spending.
    Please cite voter fraud. Bettter yet please show us the person that was hit by a bolt of lightining and bit by a shark all in the same day! You could probably prove that before voter fruad! Lol

    so the dems will spend more on YOU. or will it make you feel better about not being as successful as the wealthy

    or do you really believe the government needs more money but not enough that you should pay more

    there is no honest reason for you dems to want only the wealthy to pay more and not everyone else

    The only purpose for raising tax rates is to damage the Republican Party. There IS no other reason. The last thing on Obama's mind is balancing a budget or paying down the debt.

    yeah it might make that guy stop voting for big spending politicians

    its the middle and lower classes who vote in big spenders. its time the sucklers of the public tits start realizing they have to pay for the milk
