Posted on 11/30/2012 6:42:51 PM PST by Arthurio
A group of House Democrats has formed its own Gang of Six to push for progressive tax reform in which the expiration of the Bush-era tax rates for the wealthiest Americans is just the beginning.

If you want to support American workers, buy from the Japanese and Korean automakers who have plants in right to work states
Of course it’s “Just the beginning” did anyone with two brain cells think that the far left kooks only want to “Tax the rich” PLEASE..they want to tax EVERYONE..the far left hates everyone and I mean EVERYONE who earns a living..the only ones they care about are the moochers and freeloaders who live off of food stamps and other Govt goodies, that way they have their permanent Dem base
Why wait. The time is now.
Yep, right here in AL,TN, GA, SC and maybe MS.
A RIOT is an ugly thing!
Sounds like a declaration of war.
Same here re unions. I refuse to shop at my local Kroger because they are unionized. I like the Publix better anyway.
Theyre the only things standing in the way of Hugo Chavez style dictatorship in this country.
Oh, no .. there is one other thing standing in their way ... and that thing is the Tea Party. Keep in mind that it was only the Tea Party that stopped the socialists when the Democrats controlled all 3 houses.
That'd make everyone happy.
If those two are all that’s standing in the way, we are in even more trouble than I thought.
These shopkeepers and cowboys have no idea how the other 99% live!
The real negotiating strength for the Republicans is the middle class tax increase. Who in their right mind thinks that Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi care about the middle class in THE PRIVATE SECTOR? Now, they care a lot about the middle class in THE PUBLIC SECTOR. That’s one of their big voting blocks. You start talking about less take home pay and smaller income tax refunds to teachers and EPA employees and county truck drivers and all of a sudden you’re right in the middle of Democratland. They care about their money and the Democrats care about their votes. Here’s how the Republicans should talk about this.
“We have worked hard to solve our nation’s financial problems. We negotiated in good faith with the Democrats and came up with a bill that would help solve the country’s financial problems. This program will cause tax rates, across the financial spectrum, to rise to help pay our bills. The Democrats agreed to this program. Now, they want to back out of their deal and cause our country financial misery in an effort to grandstand and score political points. We think that the program, while not perfect, is a step in the right direction. President Obama has been clear that he wants to raise taxes, and at this time, we support him, though Republicans really don’t like raising taxes on anyone. The Republican Party does not approve of giving the President more money to just waste, so we do not support his request for additional hard-earned tax money beyond the rising tax rates. We look forward in a year from now, to see how these tax increases that the Democrats have so long desired affect EVERYONE in this country. Thank-you.
My new Toyota assembled in Indiana with 75pct US made parts,.
Just not your Russian Great Grandpappy's sort of country I can tell you that!
Add a few more things to the "sin tax" list - anything that has had costly consequences for the taxpayers.
Democrats would freak. The entire democrat base would have to pay.
The only way to save this country is the sharing of the WORK rather than the wealth, but the lazy left wing freeloaders would never stand for it. As long as they can elect politicians to do the stealing for them, they're just fine and dandy the way things are.
Nice graphics work.
So many combat veterans who have killed people and engaged in organized violence. Yes, it’s not just a country of people screwing tires onto cars and weighing envelopes at the post office.
In my neck of the woods, the famous symphony conductor from Venezuela is in town and is receiving a lot of publicity, both in performances and on the airwaves of the local classical music station. I wonder if there's a leftist push to promote Venezuelan culture and with it (subtly) Venezuelan politics, up to and including Venzuelan-style "elections." Maybe I'm just being cynical.
(Though I must admit to a long-standing fondness for Venezuelan chocolate. Mmm mmm good.)
It always amazes me how little many FReepers understand about how manufacturing works in this country. They seem to have the impression that a roll of steel rolls in one end of a factory and a finished car rolls out the other.
It just don’t work that way. A factory might have their one big bread and butter job but they’ll have a half dozen other smaller jobs running at the same time for any number of other companies. I once went to the far end of the shop where I made door skins for Cadillac and found a press pumping out frisbees for a special Wham-O run.
