    The fact that you want to gut literally every single social program unless it personally benefits you is disgustingly selfish.

    Btw, if you are truly interested in lowering the debt, why are you opposed discontinuing the tax cuts for those making more than $250,000?

    If we really want to make a dent in the debt, we merely should return the Top/high Marginal Rates to Historic norms...
    Forget those under 250k. They can have or not have the Bush tax cut renewal.

    What's needed and reasonable Based on the historic norms Is higher rates on higher earns:

    $250,000 ....... 40%
    $500,000 ....... 50%
    $1,000,000+ .. 60%


    This would Seriously pay down the deficit but not hurt those who have to spend all or most of their incomes to live.

    Also gets rid of the Idiot 'Pay Czar'.. and lets companies pay any Salaries/Bonuses they want.. Just Uncle Same/the Rest of US, get to improve our balance sheet and pay down the deficit.
    Who cares what they make Salary//bonuses/etc if it's taxed 60%?!?
    More power to them!... us.

    Also the cap on Social Security contribution has to be removed, to pay for that entitlement.

    this is idiotic

    everyone should be able to keep the same percentage of the next dollar they earn. Your system is a major reason why we have a runaway debt--right now the dems win elections by promising the majority of voters that they can continue to have all their pork and it will be paid for by jacking up the taxes on the minority of voters who pay most of the taxes. The top 1% make 22% of the income but pay 40% of the income taxes and almost all the death confiscation taxes

    we should have a system where YOU suffer MORE taxes at the same percentage as I do when there are tax increases.

    Like most class warfare jihadists, you fail to understand that if taxes are jacked up on the smartest and most productive people, they engage in tax avoidance strategies that DECREASE the taxes they pay costing parasites big time. Remember the Moronic Clinton LUXURY TAX--who did it hurt? not the rich buying yachts--it hurt the blue collar people who built yachts

    Interesting conservative you are

    its not a tax cut for the people making 250K a year, for the majority of this country's history, the most productive people never paid much of any income tax. it was only dems in the 20th Century that jacked the rates up to the point that someone would claim a 35% confiscatory tax rate is a tax cut

    I believe in the root form of the term, conserve. To conserve our resources, including our environment. What I find ironic is that most other "conservatives" I've met don't believe in conserving.

    Our most prosperous time in this country was when the progressive tax system was still progressive, that's why they called it the Golden Era. Reagan and W put an end to that, which started our big climb into debt and the gradual destruction of the middle class, which brings us to where we are today. A course correction is needed to get us back on track.
