    I didn't say that the money should go into the general fund. I said the money does go into the general fund.

    Right and as long as people accept the liberal claim that tax dollars are all the same we will never get back to fiscal responsibility.

    We,ll get back to fiscal responsibility when the bush tax-cuts expire.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    that is silly. until there are massive cuts in spending, the temporary increase in revenues won't mean squat

    How does taking more money from individuals put 22.7 million Americans back to work full time? In your world it is never about spending, is it?

Your argument that people pay for SS and Medicare thus put money into the General fund as an argument that the poor do pay taxes is typical liberal diversion and distortion of reality.
    Again, you "think" I am advocating something because I remind you that it is happening. That is not my problem, it is entirely YOUR problem. I have NEVER advocated for the spending of SS dollars and iou's put in their place...EVER. And if at any time you wish to show where I have done so, by all means, show me where I have done so.

    This is nothing more than you, once again, being shown a thing you originally claim to not understand, and when it is explained to you, you then think it is something that the person who is enlightening you is in favor of the thing he is helping you to understand. We call that "blaming the messenger".

    Get a clue.

    Laughable

    Taxing the top 2% would fund the Government for a week

    Obama is borrowing 46 cents for every dollar he spends

    Obama is spending 5.60$ for every 1$ of real wealth generated in the private economy

    Obama has trillion dollar deficits going on the 5th year in a row

    Obama's failed stimulus was littered with cronyism and corruption

    At least you admit you're all for taxing the Middle Class though, since you failed to clarify which "Bush Tax Cuts" you wish to keep and which ones you wish to expire

    47% of Americans pay no income taxes, yet profit handsomely from Government subsidies

    An American who makes 60K a year has less disposable income than an American who makes less, thanks to all of the hand outs

    Obama's "budgets" are so laughable his own party consistently votes against them

    Harry Reid hasn't passed a budget since before the IPAD hit the market

    Thirsty?

    Democrats don't believe in democracy.

    Remember Wisconsin, Indiana or even prop 8 in California - the second their crap fails or something they don't agree with is voted into law they go bananas, they protest, run to courts or just run to other states to avoid voting (like we saw in Wisconsin)...

    Of course the second the people vote their ideas into law they will call it a "great day for democracy."
