    Because with a 14 trillion dollar debt the federal government has proven they are SO deserving of collecting more tax revenue...

    if the sole problem in extending the tax cuts to upper earners is the 700B hole it will blow in the deficit, how can we afford to yield the bush cuts to middle earners at a cost of 3 to 4T?

    obama suddenly wants us to see him as a DEFICIT HAWK!

    LOL!

    and he expects us to BELIEVE!

    you know who's embarrassed---jason altmire in the burbs of pittsburg, gerald connolly in fairfax county (probably the most important house race in the nation, dc suburbs), travis childers in tupelo who isn't even a freshman (he won a special after governor barbour promoted wicker to trent lott's senate seat), joe donnelly in indiana (who's running ads attacking the "pelosi tax" on energy and castigating the "dc crowd" with images of the triumvirate in the background), ms herseth-sandlin in south dakota at large (you really think SOUTH DAKOTA is gonna vote blue, today, state wide?), frank kratovil on maryland's eastern shore, tom perriello in cumberland (perhaps the lowest hanging dem incumbent in the nation, perriello---you gotta give him credit---he's going down with self respect, actually proud of his votes for stimulus, health care, cap and trade), walt minnick in idaho's panhandle (home of ruby ridge and skinheads, the reddest district currently held by blues, but, because of intra-state gop problems, he's actually sposed to keep his seat, having voted against obamacare and cap and trade)...

    also shamed are---michael arcuri in NY24, tim bishop in NY1, mike mcmahaon in NY13, bobby bright in alabama (who joked nancy should die), chris carney in PN, patrick murphy in the philly burbs, steve driehaus in OH, mary joe kilroy in OH, zack space in river country OH, ann kirkpatrick and gabby giffords and harry mitchell in AZ, martin heinrich in corruption wracked new mexico (thanks to governor bill richardson, committed clintonista), martin heinrich in new mexico (where susan denish, the dem candidate for albequerque is campaigning on YANK ILLEGALS' DRIVERS LICENSES---in NEW MEXICO!), dina titus in nevada (one of the 4 most closely watched seats in the nation, with WA3, gerald connolly in fairfax and walt minnick representing the white separatists), betsy markey in CO, bill foster and melissa bean in IL, glenn nye in norfolk VA (the chesapeake enclosure, all military), gary peters in oakland county (detroit suburbs, still 4th wealthiest community in the nation), mark schauer in south central MI (more midwest than chicago), heath shuler (former redskins qb) and mike mcintyre in NC, jim marshall in GA, gene taylor in mississippi, chet edwards in TX17, mike michaud in ME, and jerry mcnerny in my own home district CA11

    Boehner surprise: Dems barely get votes to adjourn after floor speech - The Hill's Blog Briefing Room

    they all voted WITH THE ORANGE DUDE to POSTPONE adjournment until they GOT THIS DONE

    the palsied and temporary speakeress had to cast the TIE BREAKER

    yes, all adults are ashamed

    what do you believe will be bobby bright's diposition during the duck?

    political expediency

    does anyone think people like Hazlnut would be willing to pay half of the next dollar they make in taxes like many of us in the top bracket will?

    anyone who wants the rich to pay more ought to step up and agree to pay the same rates as they do

    How much of the decline in the middle class is due to raising the bar on the poverty level so that some at the lower end of the scale are now considered "poor"
    And how much of the decline is actually due to people making less money than they used to and are now "poor"

    I'd love to see those statistics.
    Yeah, right, it is all Obama....were you born yesterday? This happened over decades, not just a few years...

    Honestly, who care what the "gap" between the rich and poor is? Our poor live relatively well compared to their poor counterparts elsewhere. I don't know why people think that equality means equal results. Well I do know why, it's jealousy plain and simple. And its jealousy over material wealth, which for me is not an important measurement of my wealth in life.

    Wow. Looks like the progressives' war on the middle class is coming along nicely.

    Excuse me ma'am, your slip is showing....
    I and the wife have a 6 figure retirement income, and we pay a lot of taxes...but we aren't selfish and greedy and we realize that MOST of our taxes are put to good use.
    We have been paying taxes for over 49 years, audited twice (showed receipts and walked out in only a few minutes), never hounded.
    If paying taxes is so offensive to you, just don't pay. It will take years for them to get around to putting you in jail....

    Putting mor peopel back to work would be more tax revenue, too. What's to be accomplished by more tax revenue? What's going to be done with all that tax revenue? Seriously, how is all that tax revenue going to close the gap between rich and poor?
