    what? i mean, nobody's going to accuse the Republicans of being fiscally sane on my watch; but have you been paying attention the last few years?

By eliminating revenue increases at the same time the GOP won't touch Defense, Social Security and Medicare, there is no chance in hell we'll be able to get anywhere near the black.

    America is doomed because the Republicans refuse to raise taxes and the Democrats refuse to cut.

    We should enact a 5% sales tax nationally that's sole purpose to pay down the debt.

    This indictment of the Democrats' lack of bipartisanship is underwhelming in light of the unwavering, highly partisan solidarity shown by Republicans during the last two years. Besides, the Republican version of bipartisanship seems to be Obama lets them have everything their way.

    Well it passed dispite the Dems crying, "If you don't punish the rich, I'm taking my binky and going home."

    I wonder how many would think that would be a good idea because all we do is give the rich too many benefits or tax breaks anyway.
    The driving forces behind oppression, damaging environmental policies, the abusive religious profiteers, and all of those people in the government that conservatives claim can't be trusted. They'd all be gone. Rational middle class people can take over as leaders of industries, and could run them for the betterment of the community at large, rather than for personal profit. The corruption could be taken out of the system. You know all that wasteful spending... THOSE ARE THE PEOPLE DOING IT! That would be the best thing that could ever happen. Get the bad guys out of town.

    ITs people like you who lost the most--your desire to screw over those who already pay the most taxes took a beating. And in 2012-the GOP COngress will send up one choice-keeping tax rates the same for everyone. And if Obama vetoes it or the dems in the senate block it, we will have an election where the dems are jacking up taxes on the middle class (which would be a good idea in the sense that the middle class has gone too long thinking its the duty of the rich to pay for most stuff).

Or they pay huge bucks for a great tax guy that gets every loophole possible. Usually when all is done the IRS owes THEM money. SO dont give me this Boo-hoo-hoo cry baby story. Thats not EVERYONE mind you. Probably 40% - 65% of em.
    Either way... I say screw em! Just like they look at everyone BUT themselves and say screw em.
    We need Libertarians in the WH to call the shots and tell it the way it is.

    another interesting libertarian position=--=when the government takes less of your wealth that is a gift even if you actually have to pay a higher proportion of the income tax burden?

    You obviously don't realize that pork and earmarks create jobs, and jobs is the only way out of the recession.
