WASHINGTON (AP) The Democratic chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee says Republicans who want to spare the military from devastating across-the-board spending cuts must be willing to consider closing tax loopholes and raising rates to boost revenue.
Sen. Carl Levin of Michigan told reporters Tuesday that Republicans, including presidential candidate Mitt Romney, must abandon their no tax increase pledge.

‘must abandon their no tax increase pledge’
My idiot Senator...Grahamnesty has already indicated that he would be open to tax increases....(Can’t wait to primary Lindsey in 2014!!)
I know this SOB traitor well because he was my so-called senator.
He’s a liar, a fat slob, a seditionist and a coward.
The last time Senator Tubby visited my congressional district was in the late 1980s. That’s nearly 30 years ago. He got chased out because the people in the district wanted to kick his a$$.
Senator Fat-Gut gets elected only because the RINOs in Michigan are too bloody damn stupid to hold back the vote totals in their districts until after Lansing and Detroit release their vote totals.
Michigan gets what it deserves and it’s mostly heaps of stupid, personified by the blob Levin.
The thing that sticks in my mind (and craw) most about Levin is that, within a day or so after 9/11 he said the attacks proved that we shouldn’t have a missile defense system, since there were other ways to attack us. Which, of course, makes as much sense as saying that if your windows aren’t locked, the solution is to unlock your door, too.
The guy’s mind ain’t right, but that comes with being in congress too long.
