Obama can increase tax rates all he wants, but those with the ability to do so will find a way to avoid paying.
The left always makes the mistake of assuming that their actions will not affect economic behavior, that the cows will meekly line up to be milked.
When you tax an economic activity at higher rates, such as capital gains and/or dividends, you will see less of that activity.
Yes I know. Saw a poster the other day that sums it up perfectly. Was a picture of a snake swallowing it's own tail. Below the picture it said "A nation Trying To Tax It's Way To Prosperity Yeah, It's That Kind Of Smart"

The American people already have the best medical care in the world, at least until Obamacare denies that care.
We all understand that Obama prefers to go over the cliff, increasing taxes for everyone and slashing defense spending, a leftwing dream.
NAH, THA'S NOT TRUE, JOHN. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE CAIN'T EVEN AFFORD MEDICAL CARE OR AIN'T YOU BEEN PAYIN' ATTENTION TO WHAT YOU YOUSELF BEEN SAYIN'? WHAT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE GOT IS A TWO OR THREE TIERED MEDICAL SYSTEM BASED - SURPRISE, SURPRISE - ON MONEY AND GREED. IF YOU OLD AND SCARED AN' RICH THEY CAN HOOK YOU UP TO SOME MACHINES AN' MAYBE GIVE YOU A NEW HEART KEEP YOU GOIN' TIL YOU 80 OR 90. IF YOU OLD AND POOR YOU PRETTY MUCH DEAD.

THOSE DARN EUROPEAN SOCIALISTS GOT YOU BEAT, JOHN. IN FRANCE, WHEN A WOMAN HAS A BABY, SHE ENTITLED TO POST-PARTUM MEDICAL CARE TO, UM, "RETRAIN AN' REVITALIZE" HER VAGINA. SHOW ME THE MONEY, JOHN. SHOW DEBIL THE MONEY. PAR LEZ VOUS, JOHN?

Not if the tax rate is 40%, which would be necessary to cover Obama spending.
23% Getting rid of the IRS by passing the fair tax would cause the greatest economic boom this country has ever seen. The revenue from that economy would be massive.

He won swing state voters because of the way he "handled" Hurricane Sandy...according to CNN.

He won because Romney decided to play it safe when, just the day before Sandy made landfall, Gallup and Rasmussen had him ahead by a 5 and 4 point lead respectively. Source posted last night.

He won because the liberal machine had a methodical method of getting democrat voters to the polls.

He won because too many people had been brainwashed with too many negative Obama campaign ads.

He won because enough voters had reservations about Romney's Mormonism.

Basically, Obama won because he's the luckiest person on the planet.

All polls showed a signficant majority believed we were on the wrong track right up until the day of the election.

PYONGYANG (The Borowitz Report)—North Korean leader Kim Jong-un surprised Korea-watchers today by abruptly cancelling his nation’s controversial rocket test and launching a fragrance instead.

The dictator’s signature fragrance, called “Number Un,” could be on store shelves in time for Christmas, according to the Korean Central News Agency.


The decision to launch a fragrance rather than a rocket “shows a kind of realism that has been rare in the Kim family,” said North Korea expert Dr. Hiroshi Kyosuke, of the University of Tokyo.

“I think Kim Jong-un most likely said to himself,‘Given how badly my last rocket did, maybe I’ll just launch a fragrance,’” he said.

The official North Korean announcement offered this description of the new fragrance:“Number Un deliriously combines the sweet smells of North Korea’s native unicorns with the irresistible aroma of our Dear Leader himself. This holiday season, every kiss begins with Kim Jong-un.”

Are you in the libertarian wing or the right to life wing of the GOP?
Peace
Fiscal conservative versus social conservative is a much better description.

If Demos/Tenzing/Nucular is any indication, libertarians favor taxing as much as necessary to balance the budget. Conservatives prefer to reduce spending as much as necessary to balance the budget.

Some validity here.
Wealthy can afford tax attorneys and avoid most taxes.
Conservative posters on topix most often can't? just saying
Many companies may decide to retain earnings instead of paying dividends that will be taxed at inflated rates. They have already paid their 2013 dividends in advance, some borrowing money at low interest rates to do so. Just one example of how Obama policy hurts the economy.

Similarly, investors will sit back instead of realizing capital gains that will be taxed at inflated rates.

You don't need to be wealthy or have a tax attorney to figure that out.

It's much too easy to throw in the towel and get on the free bandwagon even it means adjusting and downsizing.
