Bill Kristol:'It Won't Kill The Country If We Raise Taxes' On Millionaires

WASHINGTON -- Conservative commentator and Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol said Sunday the Republican Party should accept new ideas, including the much-criticized suggestion by Democrats that taxes be allowed to go up on the wealthy.

"It won't kill the country if we raise taxes a little bit on millionaires," he said on "Fox News Sunday." "It really won't, I don't think. I don't really understand why Republicans don't take Obama's offer."

"Really? The Republican Party is going to fall on its sword to defend a bunch of millionaires, half of whom voted Democratic and half of whom live in Hollywood and are hostile?" he asked.

One of the biggest fights as Congress returns will be over taxes, as cuts put in place by former President George W. Bush are set to expire at the end of the year. Republicans want to extend those tax cuts for all income brackets, while Democrats want to raise revenue by allowing them to expire for wealthy Americans.

Exit polls last week found that six in ten voters supported ending the tax cuts on the wealthy, but House Republicans have remained adamantly opposed to allowing any of the rates to expire, instead supporting other changes to the tax code. House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) indicated on Friday that was unlikely to change.

----------

Some of the conservatives are coming to their senses.

As he said, many of the rich folks are Democrats or Hollywood types. Why does the R Party defend their wealth??

It has cost them dearly.

Worked so well? Republicans were the party of Lincoln and you Democrats were the slave owners. Obviously an idiot like you has no clue.
I'm not surprized people feel this was as you on the left are the party of hate & division. This is bound to happen when evil, hateful people like you spread your hate, dolt.
So that's were some of the usual losers were the day after the election? Starting an online petition supporting the secession of the Redneck Racist Republic States of the Confederacy? You get like 200-500 unverified names on petitions that need 25K and you claim crocked up victories? Romeny either taught you or learned from you, but neither learned from Tuesday's results.

BTW, the current SOLID SOUTH that you guys are claiming to be the party of Lincoln is not--it's the elephant droppings that were left behind when the Dixiecrats couldn't live with the Civil Rights legislation of the 1960's. LMAO

Former Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez, an adviser to former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney on Latino outreach, said Sunday the candidate's failure with those voters was due to hardliners in the Republican party who were "scaring the heck out of them."

"The Hispanics I know were scared of the Republican party," he said on CNN's "State of the Union" in a blunt assessment of Romney's loss. "I think it has to do with our incredibly ridiculous primary process where we force people to say outrageous things, they get nominated, and they have to come back."

Gutierrez worked under former President George W. Bush, who won around 40 percent of the Latino vote in 2004 -- over 10 points more than Romney won this year. The Latino vote was a pivotal part of the 2012 election, and it is widely acknowledged that the Republican Party could be forever damaged if it can't win over more Latinos in the future.

He said extremists in the party were fully to blame for Romney's loss, pointing to "the anti-immigration talk, the xenophobes." "It's almost as if we are living in the past," he added.

Just trying to educate those 10 million heads full of mush who so richly boasted Gallup and Rasmussen. I realize you can't cure stupid (i.e. Romney supporters), but I remain hopeful.

Nah__nifty town actually, Utica Club beer, State Theater, nice little zoo. Years ago they had a couple of mounted police patrols in the downtown area__that was cool.

Also years ago Floyd Patterson had a boxing camp near Utica with matches during weekday nights, Wednesday iirc, that were worth the couple of bucks admission.

After its second defeat at the hands of Barack Obama, under whom unemployment has never been lower than the day George W. Bush left office, the Republican Party has at last awakened to its existential crisis.

Eighteen states have voted Democratic in six straight elections. Among the six are four of our most populous: New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois and California. And Obama has now won two of the three remaining mega-states, Ohio and Florida, twice.

Only Texas remains secure — for now.

At the presidential level, the Republican Party is at death’s door.

Yet one already sees the same physicians writing prescriptions for the same drugs that have been killing the GOP since W’s dad got the smallest share of the vote by a Republican candidate since William Howard Taft in 1912.

In ascertaining the cause of the GOP’s critical condition, let us use Occam’s razor — the principle that the simplest explanation is often the right one.

Would the GOP wipeout in those heavily Catholic, ethnic, socially conservative, blue-collar bastions of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Ohio and Illinois, which Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan swept, have anything to do with the fact that the United States since 2000 has lost 6 million manufacturing jobs and 55,000 factories?

Where did all those jobs and factories go? We know where.

They were outsourced. And in the deindustrialization of America, the Republican Party has been a culpable co-conspirator.

Unlike family patriarch Sen. Prescott Bush, who voted with Barry Goldwater and Strom Thurmond against JFK’s free-trade deal, Bush I and II pumped for NAFTA, GATT, the WTO and opening America’s borders to all goods made by our new friends in the People’s Republic of China.

Swiftly, U.S. multinationals shut factories here, laid off workers, outsourced production to Asia and China, and brought their finished goods back, tax-free, to sell in the U.S.A.

Profits soared, as did the salaries of the outsourcing executives.

And their former workers? They headed for the service sector, along with their wives, to keep up on the mortgage payment, keep the kids in Catholic school and pay for the health insurance the family had lost.

Tuesday, these ex-Reagan Democrats came out to vote against some guy from Bain Capital they had been told in ads all summer was a big-time outsourcer who wrote in 2008,“Let Detroit Go Bankrupt!”

Yes, the simplest explanation is often the right one.

No, there's no cure for stupid Romney supporters like me. Don't you know? We're going to join that 47% of professional takers whenever and where ever we can. Hell, we're now going to retire younger than those Greeks.

Old career ambition: Work hard, build wealth, expand business and pull oneself up by bootstraps whenever we faced a challenge or setback.

New career ambition: "Do you want fries with that."

New language for Romney supporters, repeat after me:

"What time does the free clinic open?"

"I'm a victim of (fill in the blank.)"

"How do I get a free cell phone?"

"I'm not taking THAT job, I've got another 18 months of unemployment left."

"If I take these depression meds for x amount of months, there's a great chance I'll qualify for Social Security Disability. I don't have cab fare but they'll send Dial-A-Ride to take me to my appointments."

Saw it__terrific show where both he and Huntsman put the smackdown on the nasty POS Gary Bauer__Guttierez actually waved a finger in that little schucks face as the show was ending.

The (R) party needs to divorce itself from the likes of Bauer, Reed and such if it plans a return to relevancy.
