If the republicans after saying that any tax increase will not be part of negotiations, to then agree to ANY tax increases....then as far as I am concerned they can all go the devil.

Is there no one.. with any leadership qualities who can cut expenses and waist. Why penalize our businesses and the people who are successful?

I’m sick of these people. Sick to death of them.

Let the country go bankrupt... NO NEW TAXES....

The RINOs agree, but will call the new taxes, “fees”.

AP:
“The White House has proposed raising about $600 billion in new tax revenue, including ending subsidies to oil and gas companies, an idea that failed in the Senate.”

We’ve been here before. Many times.

Taxes will go up. Real spending won’t be cut by a penny. All the “cuts” will be illusory; cuts in future rates of growth, labeled “budget cuts.”

The economy will keep one foot in the grave; maybe go ahead and flop all the way into the casket. Stagflation will worsen, and the media will kvetch about how “the Presidency has gotten too big for just one man.”

The administration also would tax private equity or hedge fund managers at higher income tax rates instead of lower capital gains rates, change the depreciation formula on corporate jets and limit itemized deductions for wealthy taxpayers. It also has called for repealing a tax benefit for an inventory accounting practice used by many manufacturers.

Yeah, now THAT'LL help the economy and spur on business to hire more workers.

“I hope my Republican colleagues will put the economy ahead of politics,” he said on the Senate floor. “I hope they’ll join us to create jobs and set aside their desire to please the tea party and defeat President Obama.”

Well, by golly gee, Reid. That is exactly what they will be doing when the REFUSE to hike taxes on small businesses! You pathitic, lying little pr*ck. Thanks alot Nevada for hoisting this complete moron on the country for another 6 years!

“President Barack Obama made his first direct foray into the deficit negotiations Monday. He met with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in the Oval Office for about 30 minutes Monday morning ... “

And that 30 minutes is the absolute limit of Obama’s attention span. (Drugs will do that to you).

But he said the only way to achieve that objective would be to include tax increases or the elimination of tax breaks for big companies and wealthy individuals.

So absolutely NOTHING has changed and the ONLY change would be the Republicans capitulating and going for tax increases.

Some pretty serious dickering going on there!

They don’t have to raise taxes. All they need is to have the President put out more regulations. That will automatically raise the cost of everything in the country.

Dear Rats:

You pass your tax increase ideas in the Senate first, and THEN we can talk about how stupid-ass it is to kick the economy in the private parts like this and tell you - No. New. Taxes.

Come talk to me when every POS like Stanley Thornton is off the government dole. Until then, go F yourself Obama.

Stanley Thornton of Redding,Ca spends his days pretending that he is a baby, going so far as to wear diapers and even sleep in a man-sized crib. He also has a roommate that acts as a surrogate mother who even bottle feeds him.Stanley even built his own man-sized high chair. Even worse this man from Redding,Ca has been living off of welfare and disability benefits on the tax payers dollar for ten years now.

“Looks like the DNC will win after all.”

That’s media spin for ya ... making the Dem losing position, the one that is GOING NOWHERE, sound like a great idea that everyone wants.

the Republicans need to make a simple request: Dems, pass your plan through the Senate. (hint: These bad ideas were already voted DOWN in the Senate.)

No new income taxes, but increase (or add) tariffs on outsourcing and on nations with high tariffs on us. We have to stop being the sugar daddy to other nations.

The White House has proposed raising about $600 billion in new tax revenue

If this is accurate, then it looks like the rat Usurper has thrown down. Will Boehner have the cojones to back up his words? McConnell?

McConnell meets with the kenyan tonight. It should take about thirty seconds, if he does what he says he will do.

"I'm sure this would be a *big* help to the economy "

Someone has to come up with that solution. There is general agreement that the next generation will not be as well off as their parents. This is a serious problem.

An economic system which produces an ever increasing lower class is unsustainable in a voting democracy. This isn't Syria where the haves can crush the have-nots with military force. It needs to be addressed now or face the voting consequences.

If taxes need to be selectively raised until this downward spiral is reversed, then that is an alternative. Those that see taxes as fixed in stone should come up with that 'big' help.

The sole purpose for the rats pressing for tax increases is because the rats know that approval of any tax increases by the GOP would mean the death of the GOP. Period, end of discussion. All that’s left is to see if the GOP indeed commits suicide.

If the Rupublicans raise taxes $1 to pay off the bankers’ debts, which is what a tax increase would be, I will NEVER vote for them again under any circumstances.

It they want to go for political suicide, they can.

So the Dems jack up the debt by more than 4 trillion by tacking on several bills at nearly a trillion a pop. The subsequently get destroyed at the polls losing 70 seats in the house and 7 in the senate.

Now as part of the deal to up the debt ceiling that THEY was to increase because of their spending, we have to agree to THEIR tax increases. Seems like a pretty unlikely deal.

If we cut 600 Billion dollars—a sum that is not possible in this Congress and then raised the taxes by 600 Billion we would break even and still spend a trillion dollars more than we take in.

Dos that make sense to anyone here?
