Reid Statement On Boehner Proposal
United States Senate Democrats ^
| Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid
Posted on 12/03/2012 4:34:19 PM PST by mdittmar
Washington, D.C. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid released the following statement today:
To protect millionaires, Speaker Boehners offer would force middle class families to pay higher taxes. Raising taxes on the middle class is bad policy and flunks the test of balance. To protect the middle class while reducing the deficit, simple math dictates that tax rates must rise on the top two percent of taxpayers next year. The sooner Republicans grasp that reality, the sooner we can avoid the fiscal cliff.
Democrats are willing to compromise, but any agreement must protect the middle class. We have also been clear that we have no intention of kicking the can down the road. Not only does Speaker Boehners proposal delay revenues into 2013, it sets up another destructive fight over the debt ceiling first thing next year.
Republicans have made an offer, but now it is time for them to get serious about forging a balanced approach.

(This is not a statement of fact. It is either opinion or satire; or both)
The DemonRats are like drunks at the bar buying rounds for all their friends while running up a tab they can't pay and demanding the other patrons pay so their drunken lackeys won't cause trouble.
Lock and Load, boys. Lock and Load!

From what I see (and expected) of Boner... I wish he would STFU, sit down, and let the dems take America off the fiscal cliff.
There is nothing the repubs can do about it anyway.

It says a lot that the Senate Majority Leader is a mob connected criminal.

(Who is John Galt?)
What is he talking about? The GOP don’t want rates to go up.

Republicans will fold on the tax hike for the “rich”.
The country is toast, store water and food. That will do you more good than voting but vote anyway to make yourself “feel better”, maybe.

So Reid, may or may not understand, that as you raise taxes, you will raise prices, thereby raising taxes, on all.
My guess is they can do the math, but since they have so many people on the dole, who do not get it, they will probably win the debate.
Business owners do not pay taxes, they “collect” them, from all of us.
We will all pay for a tax increase, by having to pay more for the goods and services provided.
Of course, those that provide the goods and services could go out of business or move out of the country.
Welcome to long lines at the market, via the old Soviet Union.

I'm thinking that "Lying sack of Harry Reid" may become a new mainstay in the popular jargon.
Right along wih "Steaming pile of Bob Costas".

It’s somewhat humorous that an unbalanced ***hole like Reid talks about a “balanced” approach.
