Posted on 12/09/2012 3:33:51 PM PST by Olog-hai
Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett said Congress will have to raise taxes to resolve its budget impasse, making him yet another top Republican to suggest that the no-higher-taxes pledge may be outdated.
If taxes arent raised, Corbett said, every state is going to be affected through cuts to military contracts and spending for senior citizens, special education and other programs relied on by millions.

The Taxpayer is NOT the only way to balance a budget and Government-dependent should "pay their fair share".
Duh. It’s going to happen anyway. 0bama has already borrowed billions for the coming fiscal year and the economic train wreck is coming. No amount of taxes will cover the budget deficits he is running
I say tighten your belt buddy!!!!
What do they want? Increased revenue to the treasury or more control over everyone's lives?
If they want increased revenue, they need to CUT TAXES.
Works every time it's tried.
If the citizens of United States had the same self-determination as do the members of a small inuit tribe, every last one of these clowns would be marched to the edge of a calving ice shelf, given a piece of whale blubber, and a shove.
Yet another liberal Republican governor for PA. Might as well not have elections here; just name another socialist democrat to the job. I don’t remember if this state ever elected a conservative as Governor.
Our unofficial state motto: Pennsylvania. Land of Taxes.
Every state is going to be affected through cuts to military contracts and spending for senior citizens, special education and other programs relied on by millions, if taxes ARE raised, too.
If our rulers drag this out long enough, we'll envy Weimar Germany before it's over.
But then, that's what The Won and the barbarians on the other end of his BlackBerry want.
raise revenue by taxing welfare and government salaries
and cutting the number of welfare bureaucrats in half could save hundreds of billions
“GOP Has to Agree to Raise Taxes”
Why? The legislation is already in place for this to happen anyway, come the first of January. As part of the agreement to raise the purely artificial debt limit imposed on the US Treasury, the tax rates set under the Bush administration simply expire, accomplishing exactly the same thing. The temporary reduction in the employee’s share of the FICA taxes will also expire, effectively “raising” the payroll tax. The other side of the equation, the sequestration of federal spending with a meat-ax approach right across the board pretty much eliminates the advocacy for one pet project or another, and is perhaps the fairest way possible to rein back at least SOME of the daily hemorrhaging from the US Treasury.
If the suffering is not spread WIDELY, then nobody has any incentive for it to stop for the few.
This WILL be balanced on the backs of the “poor”. Because we ALL are going to be part of the “poor”.
Funny how no politician, right or left, ever mentions it.
How about we start paying more taxes right after Obama’s State Dept. stops giving American taxpayer dollars to restore mosques all over the world.
We are so screwed.
There won't be enough lamposts and piano wire to go around around to hang all these SOBs when the dust settles.
What do you suppose those @$$hats are going to do with that $85B resulting from that tax increase?
They’re going to spend it THREE TIMES!
It won’t be used to pay off debt!
IT WILL BE USED TO BUY MORE VOTES, through non-value added, give-away programs!
Raise taxes to do what? What dollar amount will be raised? To what will said taxes be applied? For how long will these said taxes be raised?
Obama Approval Approve Disapprove Spread 53.7% 42.5% +11.2%
Yeah, pretty much. Elections have consequences.
As if the insane increase of federal spending on EVERYTHING BUT DEFENSE hasn't affected us. Now we are going to be defenseless in the face of hostile enemies and our weakness is going to further embolden them. Europe followed this trajectory because we provided for their defense. There is NOBODY that will provide for our defense except us.
Chicago practically invented the shakedown.
