Skip to comments.Sen. Corker: GOP Could Accept Higher Taxes On Wealthy
Posted on 12/09/2012 8:41:49 PM PST by zeestephen
Bob Corker says he and probably many other GOP senators would consider raising the top tax rate paid by the wealthiest Americans if it meant reforming big entitlement programs such as Medicare.

Say it with me again, kids: We do NOT have a revenue problem. We have a spending problem.
The GOP is dead.
Let them get slaughtered in 2014
I wish someone had run against him.
One by one, the GOOBers are surrendering to King Barack the Kenyan. What a disgrace. A two bit Chicago street punk has the entire GOP on the run. For the first time in my adult life, I’m embarrassed as hell...
Can’t understand why they don’t get it!!!! Raising taxes at all in the economy will make it worse!!!! Wealthy people hire people. They invest in the market and that helps businesses who also hire people!!! This is so frustrating to know that our phone calls, emails, and letters are being ignored. They’ve forgotten that THEY work for US!!!!
Didn’t Reagan agree to Amnesty because the Dems promised more border fencing that never happened? Hmmmm.. Democrats LIE!
Howard Baker may as well still be the TN senator. Same old policies, just a different spokesman
So the Dems have the GOP arguing about the subjects they want to argue about. The government costs twice what they bring in in taxes, which means the government is twice the size they can pay for, and yet not one bureaucrat is facing the ax.
They’ll argue about saving a trillion over ten years while adding a trillion and a half every year to the deficit.
These people deserve the collapse they are causing, and so do the people who elected them.
I don’t deserve it though, and I need to find my way off the boat. The people just re-elected the iceberg as captain of the Titanic. Its going to get messy.
Not being a republican I am confused. Would somebody please tell me who the heck is the GOP and what do they stand for? All I see is a alcoholic in the house smacking his lips wishing for a drink during interviews, Lady Gramnesty, John McLame, and a few stray dogs running around with different messages about what the GOP is for or not for.
The republicans done even stand for representative government as far as I can tell. So many voices in the house have been silenced they might as well go home.
Great, another RINOCrat
More proof that, if you are not voting for Third Party Conservative...you will be voting liberal
Why we go to the trouble of electing Republicans is beyond me. We should just elect Democrats to begin with and get it over with because the Republicans will give them what they want later on down the road.
This coupled with the traitors and parasites returning obama to the White House makes me physically ill.
OK. But we also have a major stupidity problem. Not with those working but with those making the decisions.
Maybe John boner can go on food stamps and let someone willing to work and to take some hatred hits could move in. any Marine Cpl. could do the job.
You and me both, Kemosabi. It's just crazy to watch them get rolled by a two bit street punk.
Re: “Who the heck is the GOP and what do they stand for?”
We have no principles.
We have no plan.
We have no national leadership.
Amen. The Dem was a joke but there were about 10 candidates on the ballot. I voted for either the Constitution Party guy or Libertarian...don’t remember. Just remember I didn’t vote for Corker.
And won’t for Alexander if he runs.
We have a GOP problem. RIP Republican party (1854-2012).
A few did run against him. They just didn’t stand a chance. I met them all during the primary campaign and was impressed by a couple of them; liked their stances on the issues. They just couldn’t get any momentum.
Another one was totally fruit-loopy.
So we ended up stuck with him another 6 years. :-(
Obama steals $700 billion from Medicare and he skates. GOP wants Medicare reforms and they’re evil and want seniors to eat dog food. Clearly one party has a much better PR program.
Ah! The “go along to get along” party doing its “thing” once again.
If you voted Republican and don’t see a need for a third party you have no right to complain.
What he is saying is that those tax cuts are automatic and so there is nothing Rs can do with only one house to pass them.
The question is do Republicans want all those taxes to go up, and get credit for it?
“would consider raising the top tax rate paid by the wealthiest Americans if it meant reforming big entitlement programs such as Medicare.”
But it won’t.
