Is this the super congress we’re talking about? because if so, you can count on their being tax increases.

But that’s ok, because tax increases would just be the final nail in the coffin of the economy and completely doom Obama.

This was the whole point of the supercommittee.

trust me on that.

The GOP will say they had little choice but to vote on the recommendation without debate or amendment. Plus if they vote NO there will be big defense and other cuts.

The fix was in people.

Everybody on that panel should walk into the room with that same attitude: we have a big problem, we’re going to find a way out of it, nothing has been ruled in or out.

Otherwise, it’s gridlock and a total waste of time.

Wouldn’t you want Pelosi’s appointees to say, “I haven’t ruled out entitlement cuts” or “we have to look at drastically slashing government spending — everything is on the table”?

On MSNBC they keep saying Democrats need ‘one patriotic Republican to join the six Democrats to fix our deficit’
As Biden said, patriotic is paying higher taxes.

Boehner said this is 95% of what he wanted.

Thanks for posting. Looks like CNBC is keying off an interview Rep. Camp did with Reuters:

"I don't want to rule anything in or out," Camp said. "I am willing to discuss all issues that might help us reduce our short and long-term debt and grow our economy," Camp said.

"Everything is on the table, until we as a group rule it out," he said. The economy and jobs are priorities, he added.

"Economic growth and job creation in the private sector -- that's what we need to use as a benchmark about any policy, but particularly tax policy," Camp said.

Even Pat Toomey says that he isn’t going to support “big” tax hikes, but seems to admit that some tax increases are going to happen.

The fix is in. The current political masters on both sides of the isle are taking America down. The Evil Party and the Stupid Party have joined hands.

Boehner caved. We held all the cards and could have stopped all this by freezing the spending at current levels. Oh, no. We "needed" a deal. Boehner and McConnell folded a royal flush to a pair of deuces and threw the Republic in.

Now, Now, we musn’t critize West. We are too dumb to understand this great military mind. We must bow down to his outstanding service to our country, like McCain. We must understand we can’t want the perfect, only the “possible”. We can’t get EVERYTHING with just one small part of the government. Yadda,,,Yadda,,,Yadda.

When I heard the conditions of this panel, do nothing and cut the military, it was obvious the dems would do nothing, and blame the military cuts on the RINOS. But, I am not a great military mind, ready to cary a can of gasoline through a burning fire.

Republicans: Do what the Democrats do. Recommend

Targeted Revenue enhancements

I suggest that Republicans say "OK, we favor increasing revenues to reduce the debt. We propose targeted revenue enhancements. We will draft our "Fair Revenue Enhancement to Reduce the Debt Act" which taxes at a modest 45% (forty five percent) of the assets of such businesses and groups as:

Who can deny that members of the above are:

Targeted Revenue enhancements

Targeted Revenue enhancements

Targeted Revenue enhancements

For God's sake Republicans figure it out, just once!

You know, there is one (AND ONLY ONE) tax increase I could honestly support, and that is that EVERYONE who files a Federal tax return pay something, even if it’s only 1%. This 40+% of filers who don’t pay anything are going to be the death of the Republic yet (parasite class growing).
