Liberal Democrats: Higher rates for wealthy 'just the beginning'
The Hill ^ | 11-30

Posted on 11/30/2012 6:42:51 PM PST by Arthurio

A group of House Democrats has formed its own “Gang of Six” to push for progressive tax reform — in which the expiration of the Bush-era tax rates for the wealthiest Americans is “just the beginning.”

The next step is going to be a tax on accumulated assets. A wealth tax. Then there will be the various 401k/IRA schemes.

They will allow the Bush tax cuts to expire, implement the *taxes on the rich* and then, voila: reinstate the Bush rates for anyone making up to $75k or so. That will be headlined as “The Obama middle class tax cut”.

That, along w/forgiving student loans for government work or whatever other goals they have and other incentives will give them a permanent middle class majority voter bloc.

“In response to the call for progressives to draw a red line in the fiscal cliff sand, here is our big picture stance on corporate and individual tax reform,” Rep. Michael Honda (D-Calif.) said in a statement. “Six progressive tax principles from a new Gang of Six. The expiration of the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans is just the beginning of the discussion.”

The progressive group also includes Reps. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.), Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), John Conyers (D-Mich.), Raúl Grijalva (D-Ariz.), and Barbara Lee (D-Calif).

That bunch sounds like it's going to be about as effective as solving an algebra problem by chewing bubble gum.

In politics, "Gang of X" usually refers to members who will ally themselves with another faction to achieve a desired result. Who, exactly do they plan to ally with? Are there any members of the Communist Party in the current Congress? These dingbats do realize that the Republicans are pretty safe with their districts until at least the 2022 election? Or maybe they don't.

IT’S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE ARMAGEDDON

It’s beginning to look a lot like Armageddon
Bama’s still squatting in the White Hut;
Uses a teleprompter so well, it’s Jarrett can’t you tell
Soros and globalists like the show.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Armageddon
Hurtling over the fiscal cliff;
Michelle’s spending all she can, while still blaming the white man
Liberal fascism for sure.

Well there’s commies n muzzies n Benghazi but no worries says the propaganda press ministry of spin;

Ayers n Davis Black Panthers n Operation Furious
Solyndra don’t forget Cloward Piven;

And the ruling class of corrupt Congress hacks are giddy all over again.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Armageddon
Bama’s still squatting in the White Hut;
No birth documents to show, the Usurpers gotta go
Reggie Love is waiting under the mistletoe (oh no!).

It’s beginning to look a lot like Armageddon
ObambiCare they say is the “law of the land”;
Justice Roberts violated his oath, Barry Soetoro still smokes
And our troops keep dying in ‘Stan.

If the Repubs in the House had any testicular fortitude they would shut the country down by pulling the purse strings closed. If they don’t, where are they going to take a stand?

This may be the Repubs ‘Now or Never’ moment.

I guess if that's what you have to tell yourself to feel good but its 100% false. I was a AFL-CIO worker making Toyota parts that likely went to that exact plant.

Sorry that we productive members of society don’t understand you union folks. I have NEVER had a positive interaction with a union during my career! A pox on them and all their membership, and I hope the union members eventually get enough IQ points to decide to fire their union bosses.

Stating a fact doesn't make one pro union. I hated being in the union and I'm a pro right to work guy and there are even pro union right to work supporters. In fact the GOP would be wise to reach out to those guys like Reagan did instead of attacking like some kind of stupid conditioned response.

“Same here re unions. I refuse to shop at my local Kroger because they are unionized. I like the Publix better anyway.”

I am actually borned and raised on Publix. It was even my first job. My father was a Publix manager in the 80s and 90s and made great money. However, I moved to CT with the Navy and the supermarkets up here are mostly unionized.

What I find that ultimate irony many libs refuse to shop at Whole Foods because of their Non-Union stance.

I think it is about time that we stop beating up on Boehner and McConnell all the time and say a few prayers for them instead.

They’re the only things standing in the way of Hugo Chavez style dictatorship in this country.

If Boehner/Boner & McConnell would get their heads out of their cowardly asses and actually stand up against 0dumb0, perhaps a few more prayers might be said for them. Instead EVERYONE knows (especially the RAT bastard demoRATs & the commie-pig-in-chief 0dumb0) that Boehner & McConnell are simply posturing and will fold & capitulate to 0dumb0 & the socialist demoRATs like a wet single ply of toilet.

Boehner & McConnell have not won or held their ground against 0dumb0 in even ONE single showdown.

If Boehner would declare ABSOLUTELY that the debt ceiling will not be increased by even one penny, demand 1 TRILLION in spending cuts THIS YEAR, and demand that the Bush tax cuts be extended 100% across the board....and then adjourn the House for the rest of the year. If Boehner would have the guts & balls & courage to do this, then maybe conservatives & Christians would pray more for Boehner & McConnell.

When I joined the union at Wesclox a year out of high school, I was pleased to be making a wage that seemed to be a good bit more than my other apparent alternatives. Unlike other jobs, there I was recruited. At the time, I considered I was onto some kind of insider information. Not until years later did I full appreciate how union folk differentially treat those that can beef up their ranks of like types, e.g., gays, as a weapon against those considered to be outsiders or even foes, e.g., conservatives.

Union folk hang together against "the man" (-agement). In a momentary fit of altruism, they'll call to their mind's eye how so-and-so of their number was screwed because they were ailing and not able to make their piece-rate (quota of output). I was quickly made aware how I was not to work hard or quickly (as a material handler), or they "would all be made to work harder". I wouldn't want that, would I?

Well, I wouldn't want the anger of the burly guy telling me that to come down on me--that much was clear--but I had been getting personal satisfaction about overcoming my learning curve for the job, and partly through finding efficiencies that allowed me to keep up with everyone else and all the bosses were telling me to do. I also saw how there was a pervasive slacker attitude among most of the workers that had no interest whatsoever going beyond the minimum of what their job demanded.

It took no time at all for me to realize that this behavior would make the products more expensive than they needed to be (even for my family on the outside, perhaps thinking they were doing me a favor by buying our product) and would give the competition, particularly foreigners who worked for less wage/ hour, opportunity to compete readily in a market held back by these unionists and their anti-productivity attitude that was counter to management at every turn.

We were made to think union products represented quality, but knowing how union inspectors worked, I didn't find that argument particularly persuasive.

From my school days, I knew that union violence was somehow unfairly protected against prosecution, and I pictured that I'd have to develop some kind of strategy to keep from getting hurt if there was a strike.

To make a long story short, I know first-hand the inherent destructiveness of unions and determined to get out of there and back to school to qualify for a job that would keep my life from being entangled with unions.

I did that, and was wildly successful!

You may well have never had a positive interaction with anyone for all we know ~ but knowing about unions does not, as you were just instructed by another Freeper who had to put up with them, make you pro-union.

At the same time you do have large institutions, e.g. the US government, where unions played a rather different part than you imagined.

For example, everybody in America can call or write their own Congressman ~ right?

Actually, not ~ at least not for most of American history. If you were an employee of the US government you were not privileged to write, call or contact your congressman, or senator, and neither was your wife or kids.

Some of the first 'associations' to grow up among industrial workers after the Civil War were the ones that went on to become government unions ~ their purpose was simple ~ pick out a guy, he quits the agency, he's your go-to guy who can talk to a senator or representative without fear of imprisonment, or, in fact, being beaten to death by republican or democrat party thugs.

The postal unions earned the right to speak to their elected representatives in Congress by agreeing to destroy Communist union organizers who were infiltrating the US government during the Great Depression.

They destroyed these pukes the old fashioned way and FDR wrote an Executive Order that allowed government employees to write letters to their members of Congress.

So many say that freedom is not free ~ and so it's not ~ not even the freedom you've already earned. You have to keep at it.

As far as smarts go, you know very well that your typical shopkeeper or 1 percenter (coupon clipper) just doesn't know anything at all about productive working life.

Non government employee labor union membership is down to something close to 9%.

Folks might well ask themselves why unions continue to be tolerated, if not popular, among government workers.

Could it be that our elected political class is totally corrupt and cannot be trusted to manage public affairs or the people who actually have to carry out public policy?

For example, Obamugabe ~ is he trustworthy? How about Boehner, or Reid? These people are merely the tip of an iceburg of a public leadership sector in this country who are long overdue for some serious reform.

Working within THEIR system will get you nothing more than a replacement just like them. We need something better.

Schakowsky is undoubtedly a commie philosophically and most likely received money directly from the USSR in her otherwise wasted youth.

She's involved in the old Commie ploy of fooling the black folk into forging their own chains ~ used to work, should still work. Don't trust her orher friends, or her servants.

A tax on accumulated wealth is usually called a PROPERTY TAX. There are a number of variations on the theme, but such a tax is a direct tax ~ which is why the federales don't have the constitutional authority to levy them.

States do have that power, and do so ~ since they are not prohibited from engaging in direct taxation.

The income tax is a tax on income, not accumulated wealth, except for those millions of us who live paycheck to paycheck ~ then the income tax is a direct tax on accumulated wealth!

The leftwingtards appear to be unfamiliar with the constitution ~ which mean, ultimately, they will need to be reeducated!

Fair Share = More than you’re paying now.

Fair Share = Taking more from the other guy.

Fair Share = An “evolving” made up number.

There are many definitions. One man’s “Fair Share” is another man’s “not enough”.

Besides, it has nothing to do with paying your fair share. When Obama was informed by a Reporter back in 2008 that his proposal to raise Capital Gains Taxes would result in less Revenue, which he didn’t know BTW, his response was “it’s all about fairness”.

I have no idea what that means, but to Obama is just like the Judge that said, I can’t define Pornography, but I know it what I see it. Fairness is just Libtardspeak for control over a segment of the population that you hate, nothing more.

To achieve fairness, the standard deduction must be reduced and the number of taxpayers increased. Too many unfairly pay no income taxes.

While you are correct, the progs haven’t acted in accordance w/the Constitution up til now. Why would they change? They don’t care. They have the SCOTUS backing them already & w/2 new progressive Justices, any argument of Constitutionality will become moot. IMO.

They would love to get us so riled we demand a Constitutional Convention. Then our Constitution will become a document of positive rights to be parceled out via the Federal Government.

The progressive states can already enact a direct tax and I think they will. When we have 50% of the States doing something, how long before it is *deemed* “Constitutional”?

If they get clever and start “negotiating”, giving away new money, giving Obamuzzie new authority, etc, etc., then we are indeed done for at least a generation. If they don’t like the heat they are free to step down.. Until they do tho I expect them to instead STEP UP.

100% of the states are sovereign and could always collect direct taxes ~ it's the federal government that was restricted to indirect taxation.

You are of course correct....... in the long run. In the immediate present there is no possibility of the income tax being rescinded.

The President constantly tauts fairness for a doctrine that is decidedly unfair. His policy is discrimination at it’s very worst. Not only that, but the policy will not have a significant impact on the debt. The policy is purely political rabble rousing.

If serious about raising revenue and most importantly about fairness, the Standard Deduction must be reduced. Discussing fairness in terms of reducing the Standard Deduction puts the lie to the president’s words. People understand the concept of fairness

It is action and not the passive apathetic inaction that rules Free Republic

The Tea Party still exists? A protest rally of polite old people doesn’t have much clout in a marxist nation like ours is becoming. We have to convince people that we’re going to burn this mutha down if we want to be effective.

Polite protests worked for us in 2010, but now its time to get radical and make them bring the mace and water hoses. We have to leave work and close our businesses for the day so we can protest and not some wimpy lunch hour thing where we take pride in how clean we were.

Then they will lose everything when the Marxists win. The Sons of Liberty were well-to-do merchants. They had everything to lose too.

>>The Tea Party, however, put the brakes on a government that was totally controlled by the Democrats. I don’t know how “polite old people” managed to scrape together such power,

They surprised the DC Elite and they were able to throw together enough voting power to kick some congressmen out of office. Once.

>>however their numbers are only going to swell in a post-fiscal-cliff scenario.

The “post fical cliff scenario” is also known as the Cloward-Piven Endgame Scenario. Creating Marxists is easy when people’s only source of income is the government subsidy or government job.

At least a business owner (your “shopkeeper”) produces jobs and contributes to the GDP. You and your union buddies at the Post Office don’t do jack except suck billions from the taxpayers, year after year.

Shop keepers peddle wares ~ they make nothing.

Coupon clippers ~ buy bonds, collect interest, and make nothing.

We have a bunch of people on these threads that touch on economics who like to divvy the world up into makers and users. I just did that for you and now you gotta' vetch about it.

BTW, i make perfectly valid arguments that everybody, even those who just stand there sucking their thumbs, actually have something to do with pushing the economy ~ so whatta' ya' really want? Do you want somebody to tell you that no member of a union ever did anything productive?

Karl Marx divided work into two categories ~ that which involved making things, and that which was parasitical.

I"m not a Marxist but we keep hearing from them.

And you don't read well and your memory is failing. Never belonged to a union ~

They both deserve to lose their job after caving before the democrats on the Government shutdown in 2011.

Why they are still in their jobs today after their defeat in 2012 is the subject of a corrupt Congressional system. They let the democrats walk all over them in 2011, and subsequently took the blame for failing to agree to everything Obama wanted after they caved.

They should have shut down the Government, then they would have at least accomplished something. But no, they chickened out and allowed the public to buy into the democrats fear tatcis and Lies about a government shutdown.

Also thou failing to obtain any kind of real osterity they have compromised the future financing of the united states. On that charge I don’t much care anymore.

Boehner and McConnell are worthless liabilities as republicans. They accomplish nothing but lose ground to untested lies.

Also thou failing to obtain any kind of real osterity they have compromised the future financing of the united states. On that charge I don’t much care anymore.

Boehner and McConnell are worthless liabilities as republicans. They accomplish nothing but lose ground to untested lies.

The Post Office are asking for $6 billion in bailouts. I heard it on the radio yesterday.

There ARE other types of jobs besides manufacturing and sorting envelopes, you know. A software company doesn’t manufacture anything, but it creates IP and jobs and contributes to the economy. Your disparaging referral to anyone whom doesn’t sort envelopes as a “shopkeeper” is beyond bizarre.

Tell me, where are the USPS going to get this $6B, if not from the taxpayers? Personally, I would break up the USPS and auction off the pieces.

“”first time I’ve seen some one recognize this.”
I say, replace McConnell with Paul, and Boner with Newt (Speaker doesn’t have to be a CongressCritter.”

Not that anyone will listen to the speaker of the house, or senate minority leader but we need an orator. Someone who can sway the shifting passions of the mob the democrat’s education system has reduced our population to.

Frankly we should be looking into the ranks of the professionally trained, conservative actors.

The Speaker is the third in line for the presidency, though!

The election that gave us a Republican House was held in 2010. Although we don't have a budget since the Senate won't agree to one, the continuing resolution funding the Gubmn't for most of 2011 was passed mostly in 2010, not 2011.

What that means is that 2012 was the first year the Republican majority could begin to have an impact ~ and they set up Obamugabe and his running dog lackeys up with this thing that will result in huge spending cuts and massive tax increases come January 1, 2013.

So, what do you mean they didn't do anything ~ they baited the trap ~ now it's up to Obamugabe whether or not he wants to leave government during a violent revolution when people realize that the only thing the government can afford is to set up ObamaKKKAre ~ with every other agency of government being dismantled and disposed of.

In the end this failed lawyer destroys the government and replaces it with a series of unmanned first aid stations.
