Raising taxes on the rich will only make matters worse and will result in increased unemployment.
We need economic growth which will only come from creating more taxpayers. We need tax cuts; and we need budget cuts--NOW!!
Let me get this straight: Dems have given ground and have shown flexibility, and the GOP wants to cut Social Security.
Oh, I see, it’s from Politico.
Not children....they are what you find in a diaper.
So President Bain was willing to “compromise”. Too bad we don’t have a Dark Knight to truly oppose him.
and which President/Congress did not have a Cost of Living Adjustment for SS for the first couple of years?
We need to just let it expire. Let it be the dems problem.
“McConnell said he had called Vice President Joe Biden his former Senate colleague whom he has previously worked with to cut bipartisan deals ‘to see if he could help jump-start the negotiations on his side.’
What? Send in “The Clown” Biden?
A sure sign this “deal” isn’t likely to happen!
The way it is going to work out unless the Republicans totally surrender and gives them more than they asked for is the Democrats have no intention of giving an inch. What Reid and Obama want is exactly what Obama authorized Reid to place on the floor and they will allow no deviation. The MSM will fall all over Obama singing his praises. That’s been the plan from the start.
Let it go over the cliff. All these jerks who voted for Obama because he promised to raise the taxes on the top 2% can start paying their fair share now. Raise everyones taxes, cut the spending and go on down the road. Time for the 47% to step up to the plate.
This is something nobama brought up. Now the pubs are for it and the Dems are again it? Welcome to bizarro world.
Besides, how much lower than 1.7% do they want to go? Much lower and they might as well forget about it.
Something has happened. The DOW Industrial futures went from -226 an hour ago to +31 as of this posting.
Mitch McConnell is being politically suicidal.
Social Security is the Third Rail of American politics. If he wants the GOP to keep being in the minority, cut beneficiaries’ monthly checks.
Its a political loser. The Democrats have the whip hand here.
