Skip to comments.Reid: We Must Raise Taxes! (Barry dumps Dems on taxes?)
Posted on 07/21/2011 12:45:50 PM PDT by TonyInOhio
Senate Democrats just wrapped up a meeting with OMB Director Jack Lew in the Capitol and they are not pleased. All indications are that the reports Dan cites are more or less accurate. Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) told reporters that a call came in from the White House during the meeting to announce a potential agreement with House Speaker John Boehner (R., Ohio).
Reid appeared to confirm reports that the proposed deal would not raise significant revenue, at least in the near term, and indicated that he didnt think this would be acceptable to Democrats in congress. The president always talked about balance, there had to be some fairness in this, he said, grimly. This cant be all cuts. There has to be balance, there has to revenue and cuts.
So, provided the reports are generally true, is Obama really willing to sell all Congressional Democrats down the river (apart from the moderates facing reelection in 2012) just to win another term? I think the answer is self-evident.

what does the twerp have to loose? He is toast if he doesn’t
get some agreement.
Giant HUGE head faint!
He has to win the conservative Repubs...even then he can still get a handful of Dems in the Senate needed to pass this legislation.
It's vote-counting time...and that's what will determine what will pass.
I view it as a “head fake”. He’s looking out for his own skin and will walk all over the Democrats if he thinks his decisions will get him re-elected. I don’t trust him and never will. I believe his intent is to destroy the U.S.
this is exactly what bill clinton did in 1995.
This is very good for the dems.
Grrr! Faint should read ‘feint’.
They tax us when we sleep,
They tax us for the tissues when we weep,
They tax us every time we buy,
They tax us when we drive and when we fly,
They tax our pants when we walk,
Run or sit, and we are getting tired of it.
They give away our money because it isnt theirs,
And when we die they tax our heirs.
When we use our phones they tax us when we talk,
They tax us when we eat,
When we get shoes they tax the socks on our feet,
They tax everything that moves or doesnt move,
They stay awake nights thinking of new ways,
Theyve burdened down the golden calf,
And in the population those who pay are only half.
Now, the bees do not have enough honey,
And the time has finally come when we are running out
Of other peoples money.
Hypothetical question: What happens on FR if President Obama folds and Boehner and the GOP stand firm and the debt limited doesn’t get raised?
If ANY deal comes from ANY of this, that in ANY way makes Obama look good, we will have lost.
Cnnot for the life of me figure out why the democrats are so inssistment on raising tax’s.
With the price of gas, food, energy, with unemployment at a great high, and what we are already paying in tax’s where will the higher tax’s come from?
We have just about bled out Mr. Reid. I know Democrats say tax the rich, but Congressmen and Senators are the rich, an I do not believe they will pass a tax they have to share in paying.
No cuts. No revenue. Yeah, he’ll live with that and just have his little tax cheater continue to cook the books so he can just continue to spend what he pleases. Nothing is going to stop that communist from spending. Well, something will, sooner or later, but he’s determined.
Can anyone say Rope-a-Dope
Gigantic surprise, for one thing.
Welcome to the Wonderful Wild World of 25% Unemployment, hosted by Harry Reid, world’s foremost expert.
there had to be some fairness in this, he said, grimly. This cant be all cuts.
And why not Harry?
Reid and the democrats think the answer to more taxation
is to go out and get another job to pay for it.
Harry, you will be out of work soon, let me know how
it works out for YOU.
Reid : We must raise taxes. We are not done screwing the people yet.. The economy still has a little life that we must snuff out..
I’ll take a stab at your hypothetical question.
Some folks will be very happy, some will be very upset.
We will continue to fight amongst ourselves.
The GOP will be praised and the GOP will be damned.
There will be a few deleted posts and maybe a few members banned.
We will analyze and pontificate until the sun burns out and life will go on.... LOL
