    If the republicans ignore the public polls on on taxes like they did on the election, and continue to hold the middle class tax cuts hostage so the rich can keep their tax cuts, they will lose the House for sure in 2014. If that is their decision, I say Godspeed to them!

    What you had to say didn't interest me enough to respond. Please try harder.

    the wealthy pay far more of the tax bill than anyone else

    you always want to ignore the actual dollar amounts

    Wanna bet who has control of the congress after 2014?

    I want you and the other conservatives continue to propose sacrificing the middle class and seniors to save the tax cuts for the rich. The elections will take care of themselves then.

    where your posts are idiotic is your claims that taxing the rich more actually helps the poor and opposing tax hikes on those who already pay a hugely disproportionate share of the FIT hurts the poor

    Your master has proven class warfare is his goal

    and that is your's too


    would you support a GOP plan that is just as likely to raise the same revenue as Obama's tax hike on the rich only even if the GOP plan did not raise tax rates?

    Great debating technique - if you don't agree then simply reply with nonsense. If asked to clarify your disagreement then simply blow it off. You are a debate loser, enjoy (and ponder) that thought.

    He normally refers to the masses and claims that trumps all logic
