And every year, the 7 or 8 percent increase is built in so that even if the ‘lawmakers’ have to make cuts from now until the next fiscal year in order to live within the 130 billion per month coming in, next year they will have—by established law—an increase in cost/spending automatically increasing the debt. True reform would eliminate the automatic increase and cut one penny of every federal dollar spent. THEN a truly balanced budget could be achieved in six or seven years if the Republic is still around. And it will not be if the democrat machine is allowed to continue the commie agenda.

The democrats remind me of a thief who puts a knife in your ribs and demands you wallet and watch. When you hand them over, he stabs you in the neck and leaves you for dead. The pubbies are the thief who puts a knife in your back and demands your wallet but tells you you can keep your watch so you can get to work. The he cuts your foot off so the walk to work gets tougher. Bith are thieves, both injure you, but one wants you to keep supporting the society while the other wants it all to end.

Inflating the money supply is merely indirect taxation.

The deal absolutely locks in and guarantees tax increases.

T.S. Eliot described the Republicans very well in the last section of “The Waste Land”, “What the Thunder Said”:

The awful daring of a moment’s surrender
Which an age of prudence can never retract
By this, and this only, we have existed

Excuse me, you claimed their were tax hikes in the bill and I simply asked you for the proof of this.

So find it and direct me to the location so I can read it also. If you cannot then simply admit you have no evidence of tax hikes being in the bill.

So you haven't read the bill?

And your comment "you claimed their(sic) were tax hikes in the bill" is a lie. Sorry, but you are so snarky with your comments that I had to be blunt.

My comment was "He (mike lee) found the tax hikes."

So if you wish to talk to someone who actually said they found the tax hikes, check with Sen Mike Lee

His name is a hotlink to his website.

Excuse me, you claimed their(sic) were tax hikes in the bill and I simply asked you for the proof of this.

So find it and direct me to the location so I can read it also. [Wow you sure are pushy!]If you cannot then simply admit you have no evidence of tax hikes being in the bill.

Let's see, I addressed the first sentence, a false statement.

You should do your own research, I have given you one link to start with.

I never said I had evidence that there (their?) are tax hikes in the bill.

But just to help you our, there are.

The Bush Tax Cuts weren't addressed in the bill by adding text that said "this bill also extends the Bush Tax Cuts,: therefore they will expire. That will be a tax hike. 13,000 or so for someone making 250,000/yr.

Plus the stupid committee that was agreed to can propose more tax hikes.

You can find evidence for that too If you don't get the truth of that. Oh you will find pols that say that is not true, but they are playing you.

Stay tuned to what happens next, taxes will go up.

Sure they will, unless they are extended. Besides that, since when can a current congress impose it's will on a future Congress in the form of passing legislation which the yet to be convened Congress MUST abide by?

Plus the stupid committee that was agreed to can propose more tax hikes.

Which have to be approved by the House (no chance)

You can find evidence for that too If you don't get the truth of that. Oh you will find pols that say that is not true, but they are playing you.

Proof please or is it your OPINION?

Stay tuned to what happens next, taxes will go up.

Or not. Bottom line is you are guessing and have not one shred of evidence to support your position nor does your source. You have posted opinion as fact, a no no.
