only 47%?<quoted text>
Perhaps you can explain the Obama national sales tax....
Then, since you have such insight, explain to us how that 47 percent of the population that are mooching off the other half of the population will be given additional credits and exemptions that will compensate them for any of the Obama national sales tax they have to pay.
Only an idiot believes Obama intended to increase the taxes on his moocher base.
Reagan would be disappointed.
and some similar hypocrisy.....
Just a few years ago, the tax deal pushed through Congress on Tuesday would have been a Republican fiscal fantasy, a sweeping bill that locks in virtually all of the Bush-era tax cuts, exempts almost all estates from taxation, and enshrines the former presidents credo that dividends and capital gains should be taxed equally and gently.
But times have changed, President George W. Bush is gone, and before the bills final passage late Tuesday, House Republican leaders struggled all day to quell a revolt among caucus members who threatened to blow up a hard-fought compromise that they could have easily framed as a victory. Many House Republicans seemed determined to put themselves in a position to be blamed for sending the nations economy into a potential tailspin under the weight of automatic tax increases and spending cuts.
it's no wonder Romney was their pick. the whole damn party is etch-a-sketch.
