Yeah....We have Seen it all before!
61% are in favor of raising the tax on the rich that is a strong majority. The sad part is Republicans still have their head in the sand and most still think trickle down economics works.
as others have noted, Obunny's state of the union early this year claimed that everyone but the rich sacrifices when government spending is cut-but the rich will have to pay more taxes. Meaning the rich don't benefit from government services so why should they pay even more for stuff they don't benefit from
the fact is its pure pandering to class envy. and the obama slurpers who whine that this point is repetitive fail to acknowledge that the tax the rich nonsense is the same old crap over and over and over
and its hardly attacking middle america to oppose class warfare against the most productive tax payers
I wonder what the voting would be if it was based on federal taxes paid. the majority of those who use more than they pay voted for Obama. The majority of those who pay more than they get in government benefits-Romney
The mess is not a joke...we are in deep. If it were a joke, Spain and Greece would be having a party right now.
Ok, Social Security is off the table. Not sure what that has to do with my point of not having a unlimited debt ceiling.
Sure, cut the president and congresses pay and benefits. I don't care.
Getting spending under control is a must, but let me put it this way. The debt ceiling is a check and balance. Taking that away from Congress could be disasterous. Removing the check and balance is a safety, keep it in place. I am sure that for my lifetime, our national debt will not go down. So tying it to a percentage of the GDP gives a real deficit to income ratio that I think I could be ok with. It would also take these constant debates about the debt ceiling off the table.

Obama and his cronies are hoping to see the next year begin with higher taxes for those of us who actually work and pay taxes while at the same time seeing the defense budget slashed. It is the progressive way. In order to redistribute wealth, they have to get more and more access to the wealth. That's what ObamaCare is about, it's what "fair share" economics is about and it is what his "proposal" for avoiding the "fiscal cliff" is all about. He has made a proposal that the Republicans cannot accept and it's primary intention is to keep any deal from being reached in order to ensure that taxes are increased. His backup plan is that if the Republicans are stupid enough to cave he then has more control on the spending or more important the threat of not increasing the federal debt limit is removed and he has the GOP over a barrell.
