David, we’re talking about the Bush tax cuts, right?
It means a lot. I'm tired of my money being stolen to support a bunch of democrat freeloaders who are just too lazy to get their own jobs.
Stop stealing our wages. Cut spending. Get rid of the waste! Let us keep the $2,000 WE'VE earned.
In a word "NO". The only reason anyone runs for political office is for personal gain and power. Running for office to better constituent's lives is BS. They may better constituents with pork, but their motives are to get re-elected and continue to receive their over sized paychecks and to amass power.
People may have a few weeks of uncertainty and confusion about their what their true take-home pay will be, wondering just what they’ll be paid and what they owe in taxes. I especially feel for those living month to month. But there is no way the middle class tax hike will not be reversed in very quick order.
The GOP has no power and if they did, we still could not count on them.
But the principle of the matter is that it seems to be ok to tax the rich (surely they did not WORK for their money) , at a higher rate rather than providing tax cut to all.
Don’t buy in to class warfare.
If 200 million taxable entities ( families, singles,) maintain a $2000/year tax reduction by extending the Bush Tax Cuts, the government “loses” a theoretical 400 billion.
They need to lose 3 times that.
Markets will fill the real needs, not the imaginary obamaneeds of the obamaneedy.
Those are “the Bush tax cuts for the middle class” that the democrats denied as ineffective or nonexistent for the past 10 years, and are now panicking over losing
“Tell us what $2,000 means to middle-class families.”
I couldn’t say until I know how much I’ll ACTUALLY have after the Federal, State and local governments have raped it...
Somebody needs to call them on their bi-polar claims. They say the Bush tax cuts only benefited the rich and now get away with all the tear-jerker stories about how repealing them (something the Dims set up to happen and would not back away from), will harm the non-rich...
