BILL KRISTOL: The leadership in the Republican party and the leadership in the conservative movement have to pull back. Let people float new ideas, let's have a serious debate. Don't scream and yell when one person says, 'You know what? It won't kill the country if we raise taxes a little bit on millionaires.' It really won't, I don't think.
I dont really understand why Republicans don't take Obama's offer to freeze taxes for everyone below $250,000 -- make it $500,000, make it a million. Really? The Republican Party is going to fall on its sword to defend a bunch of millionaires, half of whom voted Democratic and half of whom live in Hollywood and are hostile to Republican principles.

Every nickel of Tax Increase will be spent on another Dem Vote Buying Program!
NONE will be used to pay deficit!
That’s the truth
He’s right, depending on how “millionaire” is defined. But what it will do is show how utterly bankrupt that idea is for solving the country’s problems. Let them have it.
What is this guy saying?
Taxing an annual salary of 250K is miles away from taxing a millionaire.
Anyone who voted Democrat should be taxed at 50 percent. It’s what they asked for. Let them pay for it.
We can tax the rich to a fare thee well and it won’t make a drop in the bucket as far as the deficit. But it will drive them all to take their money offshore and invest overseas.
Repeal the Hollywood tax cuts!

Billy should just send the IRS all his income.
If Romney had won it would have been seen as proof that the GOP has to become more ‘moderate’ to succeed.
But Romney lost and our supposedly conservative pols and pundits are tripping over themselves to lead a GOP move to the left.
Heads they win, tails we lose.
Thanks for nuking my customers.
Squirrel pot pie anyone? In a few months, the weeds will be up for salad.
I was just thinking that they should pass a special tax on George Soros, Warren Buffet, and Michael Moore.
Moore gets taxed double—the millionaire tax and the Michael Moore fat & ugly tax.
If you want to pay more joker mouth Kristol, feel free to do it on your own. Keep your hands off other peoples money.
Hey it will make good tv having all the occupiers dance happy dances that those evil rich are paying their fair share. My list is getting fairly long on things I despise about liberalism.... Covetousness ranks right up there though. And some preach taxation as 'social justice'...
Yep, and in the meantime we’ve accepted the dems assumption that taxation can solve a spending problem.
Just ignore it and the problem will go away.
From what I have read about it is that it doesn’t increase tax revenue enough to fix the problem and it also causes a loss in jobs.
What do Bill Kristol, Dick Morris and Ann Coulter have in common?
You can’t use Marx’s ideas to help the middle class.
Marx wanted to get RID of the middle class.
