    good politics

    rather dishonest
    Does this mean that the 4 dem senators from NY and Calif declared that their constituents making over $200K or a family over $250K is a "millionaire and billionaire" and needs to be taxed more?

    GOod question-I don't tend to listen to those four. especially the millionaire princesses from the Left coast

    Schumer at least is smart-he was a top student. Feinswine's multimillionaire husband bought her a senate seat, boxer steers lots of legal work to her husband who is a union consigliere

    The Republicans failed to get their extension for everybody through, so now they appear to be seriously considering voting against extending the tax cuts for the middle class in retaliation. They want to teach the American people a lesson about standing up to the rich.
    Total tax rates- People living in poverty: 16.2%. The median American: 27%. Working people who make over $140k/year: 31%. The top 1%: 30%. Super rich investors: around 15%. Help the democrats retake the house.

    Taking away their jobs and houses in exchange for them allowing you tax cuts has sure shown them hasn't it?

    Did the House vote on this or are you talking about the Senate vote? Remember taxation/budget crap must start in the House thus the Senate vote won't pass Constitutional muster...

    The House passed the Republican plan a while back- to extend the tax cuts for the rich as well as the middle class. The Senate killed it and passed the version that only extends the tax cuts for the middle class. Boehner says that he'll have a vote on the Senate version next week. If the House passes it, the Senate may need to re-pass it to avoid any constitutional questions, but that's no biggie.

    pandering to the masses?

    is this what we now call "representing the interests of the majority"?

    using the money of the few to buy the votes of the many is pandering

    tell me Thunder why are you so eager for other peoples' taxes to go up but not your own

    and don't give me the crap about the deficit-its been proven that even tripling taxes on the rich won't do squat

    I realize the dems want an environment where most people have to vote dem based on most people are dependent on the government

    but that is short sighted

    creating lots of addicts assumes the dope will always be available

    when the supply dries up, the addicts are going to get real angry at their pushers

    What did your children ever do to you that you will pass on to them bills that you refuse to pay yourself?

    That is the sort of height of blatant irresponsibility that is inexcusable.

    Without significant tax increases how do you intend to pay the deficit? Or don't you?

    After you comes the deluge it would seem.
