Reid: Even the tea party supports 5 percent tax increase on millionaires
By Nicholas Ballasy | The Daily Caller 1 hr 41 mins ago
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has proposed a 5 percent tax increase on millionaires to pay for President Obamas jobs bill, arguing that even the tea party supports his proposal.
More than 50 percent of the tea party and about 75 percent of other people in America agree that we need to do something about this so were going to propose to pay for this important jobs legislation by asking people who make more than a million dollars a year to pay 5 percent more to fund job creation to ensure this countrys economic success, Reid said at the Capitol on Wednesday. Independents, Democrats and Republicans and even the tea party agree its time for millionaires and billionaires to pay their fair share of taxes.
The problem, Reid said, is that none of the Republicans who support tax increases on millionaires are in the Senate.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid: as crooked as a barrel of snakes.
What a liar.
Reid is an idiot communist liar!
How is he qualified to speak for the Tea Party?
I am calling his office now to tell him that he speaks for no one and that his party is corrupt.
The Audacity of Hope®
Submit a bill which will tax 5% of the net wealth (not income) of anyone worth over $1 million, and see what millionaire Harry Reid has to say about that one.
How about a 5% reduction in all government workers pay, starting with the Senate & Congress???
Why do we let Reid “frame” the argument.
There’s plenty of money all ready in the system, it’s just going to the platinum plated, unsustainable salaries and massive benefits of “public servants”.
When did “they” become the masters and us the slaves?
You lie!! You old sack of Nevada fossilized crap!
“even the tea party agrees...”....Uhhh, excuse me, Dingbat Harry, but TEA stands for “taxed enough already” so I think you’re a liar!
Hey Reid: Not Me.
Hey Ried, All bills of appropriation must orginate in the House. Please reread the Constitution and educate yourself.
It would be interesting to know how much additional revenue this 5% surcharge would bring in. Has anyone done the calculations?
FFS. How do these people say things like this without breaking-down and laughing hysterically?
How about a 5% across-the-board cut in ALL federal spending first!
I support kicking Dingy Harry in his big, pinky butt.. Of course I insist on a hermetically sealed boot first.
reid... you are a satanic liar and not even a good one... you mobbed up pos communist.
I really love the way these democrat leaders just pull statistics out of their rear ends and present them as gospel truth.
2012 can’t come soon enough.
