Reid Blames Tea Party Extremism for Looming 'Taxmaggedon'
Yahoo News ^ | May 22,2012 | Sunlun Miller

Another line in the sand has been drawn as Congress faces a daunting lame-duck year-end fiscal crisis dubbed around Capitol Hill as "Taxmaggedon."

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., responded to a letter from Senate Republicans today in which they called for an immediate extension of the Bush tax cuts, with a message of his own: that's impossible before the election.

Of course the Repubs don’t announce far and wide the Dem’s have controlled the Senate for the last three years and still won’t do a budget.

Democrats are not even using Keynes theory correctly, it is 2 steps,
1. print money in a recession,
2. in a depression, spend in a final government effort.

Democrats are spending like there is a depression, in an effort to reestablish their lost credibility on economic issues, because their key legislation, the Stimulus bill failed even by the Democrats own projections of 3.5 million jobs and 90% in the private sector.

Oooooh, another "line in the sand" has been drawn.

Well, based upon their record, we can expect the REPUBLI-TARD, Leadership (both the "Weeper of the House, Bone-er" and he who is afraid of his own shadow, Sen Mitch McConnell) to do what they are known for and are wont to do......

wflag

Oh BTW, these RINO WUSS, Girly Guys are one and the same that Diogeneses and his delusional HATE-ROMNEY-MOROMONS, ilk, here, have ASSURED US, will keep Dear Leader in check, so we don't have to worry about staying home or voting for someone else come Nov.

Right, now I'll sleep better; right after I have a big glass of Kool Aid or some Hemlock!

And Democrats intent further economic destruction, hurting job creation by increasing the burden of taxes, unnecessary regulation and more government debt.

LOL! Nice trolling. You take an article about Reid, and then post this Bullsh#t, complete with a white flag, about Republicans. Your own BIO says you quit the party. So Mr. Negative Troll, blow it out your ass...ron paul and his party of infants post on other sites....good riddance.

The Tea Party is the one group who has consistently been against deficit spending. Let’s blame them. :-/

Just eliminate the DEBT CEILING - it means nothing to anyone in the Fed Government. Just do away with it and we can end these fights. If I remember correctly the RATS rolled the GOP on the last great Debt Ceiling Debate” even though the GOP were holding all the cards. The RATS and their state run media threatened to blame the GOP in the media - that is all it took for the Weeper of the House to cook up a “deal”.

Again, how is he wrong? Paul’s out of the race, why bring that straw man up?

The Senate hasn’t passed a budget in years, but the Republicans remain silent. Dumbo and the Dems do ANYTHING, and still the GOP is quiet.

Contempt charges for Holder, all quiet; non-recess appointments, all quiet...

Hell, even re: this post, the Dems want to raise taxes in an election year and the GOP?? *crickets*

Exactly, what are you supporting?? I’d say you’re the one who’s acting myopically here. Since ‘10, the “It’s OUR guys” just doesn’t fly anymore

By allowing the 2003 Bush tax cuts to retire, taxes will be increasing the bottom rate from 10% to 15% and the 20% bracket to 25%.

Raising the 10% bracket to 15% represents what percentage of increase? (Hint: The correct answer is NOT 5%)To those moving from the 10% bracket to 15%, their taxes will be increased by 50%!!

Raising the 20% bracket to 25% represents what percentage of increase? (Hint: The correct answer, again, is NOT 5%)it’s s a full-blown 25% increase in taxes

Finally, raising the 35% bracket to 39% represents what percentage of increase: it’s roughly an 11% increase in taxes.

That’s the way they intend to raise taxes on the middle class while claiming it’s only a tax increase on the “rich”. They know there isn’t enough money in the top 1% to make any meaningful dent in the annual deficit. The big money is in the groups which pay federal tax, but don’t hit the top bracket. Tax increases of that magnitude would remove any incentive the government may have to cut spending. They’d spend every nickel of the new tax revenue on more big government madness.

Ditto that. Reid is such a smarmy sleaze. He drips with lies.
