Utter drivel like this, BEING UNRESPONDED TO BY THE GOP, is why Obama was re-elected.
We could take ALL THE INCOME of the people making over $250,000 per year and it wouldn’t balance the budget.
We’re not going over a fiscal cliff. We’re going over an overspending cliff.
People just don’t get the scope of where spending has gone. With total debt exceeding 100% of GDP, they could tax every single person and business 100% of what they earn and it would not pay the debt. Taxing everyone who earns over 250K 100% of earnings wouldn’t even make a scratch in the annual deficit. All of this ‘tax the top 1% is just propaganda. The proposed tax increase on millionaires would pay about 8 minutes of government spending.
