Someone kindly explain to me why the Republicans are defending these rich people from kicking in 3.6% more each year? The GOP likes calling people making over $250,000 a year "job creators,” when no such proof exists.
Show us the jobs they created and I don’t mean the ones in China, India and Mexico. Today, there is no shortage of "trust fund babies.” Such people have earned their millions the Paris Hilton way.
And these are the folks that today's Republicans believe have been taxed too much. But Ronald Reagan didn't seem to agree when he said in a very public speech that the wealthy should contribute more.
"We're going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share," he thunders to a crowd in Georgia. Such tax loopholes, he adds, "sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying 10 percent of his salary – and that's crazy." - Ronald Reagan (1985)
Now, if Reagan recognized the rich get over by not paying their fair share, how come all of the GOP supporters don’t get it? I am sure there’s an app for that.
So, what about the ones who paid nothing, "0" in taxes or for a fact nothing in their own well being and care? No one owes them a living.

What happen to "everyone should pay their fair share?"

As for the rich, not I. I never have been above living from paycheck to paycheck and have always paid taxes. Although, if the rich only pay 1%, they pay more than myself and most certainly pay more than most people, the entitlement takers including the unemployed who received year after year unemployment checks to do nothing.

Again, to all the food stamp and welfare people, if you just paid $1 every month, this is $50 million for 12 mos.equals $600 million per year.....just $1, the same amt. they spend to buy a lottery ticket and they do.

**********

You raise some very interesting points. Do we really know what's going on inside that *chamber*? They have been bickering for weeks, and for many reasons do not see a solution. There are two major issues confronting us: taxes and healthcare taxes. There's a lot of anger out there re: who will pay for this healthcare. I am just hearing that hospital's are laying off staff. The ones who are shifted to different divisions are being told they can either leave or accept positions with no benefits. If this is true then many jobs will be lost and patients will suffer due to lack of health care personnel. It seems to me that the reason this might be happening is because no one truly understands the new Obamacare and where it will lead. Which of these two evils is the worst: the fiscal cliff or the unknown consequences of Obamacare?

And another thing: They tell us they won't raise taxes on the middle class, but that there will be fewer deductions. So in essence, they will raise taxes because what we don't get back on tax returns will go to the government in another form of taxing.

I think we're screwed no matter what they do! JMO.

“But President Obama only wants to tax the rich, not the Middle Class”
WRONG! Even SCOTUS has said Obama-Care is a TAX! Obama has created more backdoor legislation with Executive Orders which cause higher prices on many things! Our Electric cost was increased more than 34% because of his policies! Do poor and middle class Americans feel that pain?
How about the milk prices which are about to double?
Take your MSNBC talking points and shove where they came from!
If the U.S.A. were not sending Billions overseas to those Nations who attack us, Kill Americans and burn our flag...maybe taxes would not be such an issue! Tell me something; how the hell does a "millionaires" tax effect your life? Stop watching MSNBC and drink less KOOL Aid. Until you realize your life is what YOU make it...you'll never make a difference in your OWN LIFE!

Bush sent $12 bn in cash to Iraq and watched it vanish!!!!

The US flew nearly $12bn in shrink-wrapped $100 bills into Iraq, then distributed the cash with no proper control over who was receiving it and how it was being spent.
The staggering scale of the biggest transfer of cash in the history of the Federal Reserve has been graphically laid bare by a US congressional committee.

In the year after the invasion of Iraq in 2003 nearly 281 million notes, weighing 363 tons, were sent from New York to Baghdad for disbursement to Iraqi ministries and US contractors. Using C-130 planes, the deliveries took place once or twice a month with the biggest of $2,401,600,000 on June 22 2004, six days before the handover.

Good post Ari........and now Obama claims immigration reform is at the top of his list. Aren't there more important issues than immigration issues as one at the top of the list. What we don't need is 10-20-30 more million people to deal with competing for jobs while still out of work Americans are struggling to find employment.

When Obama halted deportation of students brought here illegally as children, he garnered 71% of the Hispanic vote. Now they are in a "you owe me" frame of mind and want him to act immediately on these issues of concern to them. More people on stamps, subsidized housing and healthcare! Who is going to take care of all this? Along with what you said, "sending billions overseas."

Does anybody in that Chamber on the Hill ever use common sense?

Ok everybody. Lets include Hillary in our prayers tonight. She has been hospitalized for a "blood clot" formed from her "concussion ", and being treated with anti coagulants.
I bet her memory will be compromised and will never be able to testify about Benghazi. Poor dear.

Since the New Deal, Republicans have been on the wrong side of every issue of concern to ordinary Americans; Social Security, the war in Vietnam, equal rights, civil liberties, church- state separation, consumer issues, public education, reproductive freedom, national health care, labor issues, gun policy, campaign-finance reform, the environment
and tax fairness. No political party could remain so consistently wrong by accident.
The only rational conclusion is that, despite their cynical "family values" propaganda, the Republican Party is a criminal conspiracy to betray the interests of the American people
in favor of plutocratic and corporate interests, and absolutist religious groups.

Why? Because they're evil GOP bastards!

Are you ever going to admit what sh*tty presidents Reagan and the Bushs were? It's Reaganomics that are largely responsible for the ever-growing economic divide in America. You know... "trickle-down" economics. The plan that was based on the ridiculous notion that if you give rich people more money, they will happily share the prosperity. That's one of the stupidest things I've ever heard. Then Reagan closed our national mental health system (after doing it in California). He then went on to explode government spending for defense contractors while gutting as much social spending as he could get away with. Reagan was AT BEST a corporate puppet to the core. Then you have Bush Sr... the republican equivalent to Carter... useless. Did absolutely nothing. Didn't even finish what he started in Iraq. And we don't need to rehash Bush Jr's failures. We could be up all night on that one. He basically expanded on Reagan's whole plan. I'm glad Reagan died not even being able to control his own bowel movements. It was poetic justice for the "personal responsibility" icon.

I don't think republicans are evil. I just think that they are greedy and selfish and don't care about the needy, the homeless, the environment, equal rights or anything of that nature. I find it ironic because most of them claim to be Christian and in my opinion their priorities are not in line with what Jesus taught. They also seem to be paranoid, conspiracy theorists who think that their government is out to get them. It really annoys me because we are blessed to live in a democracy with checks and balances and leaders that we elect and their paranoia just makes them look like ungrateful idiots with no faith in America.

I have to throw a BULL$#IT FLAG on that play!

It was Reagan who brought America's capitalist economy roaring back to life, ending energy price controls, slashing income tax rates by 25% and dramatically reducing tax rates on capital gains.
But it's a fact. As the nonpartisan National Bureau of Economic Research once declared, we lived in the "longest sustained period of prosperity in the 20th century" from 1982 to 1999 — one big boom, the NBER said, set off by Reagan.
President George H.W. Bush's four years included some mistakes and questionable moves — a record rise in regulations, for one, and the infamous breaking of his "no new taxes" pledge that, after 1991's mild recession, handed the 1992 election to Bill Clinton.
President Clinton won largely because he promised change. He had also promised a middle-class tax cut, among other things.
But his popularity plunged when, instead of cutting taxes, he raised them by a record amount. That tax hike contributed to one of the slowest economic recoveries from a recession since WWII

Clinton signed into law a tax bill produced by the Republican Congress to cut capital gains tax rates. The result was the record boom of 1997 to 2000, the result of which was an unprecedented expansion of wealth.
Bill Clinton’s Democratic party kicked and screamed every day of how Republicans were going to throw old people over cliffs and starve Americans with welfare reform…didn’t happen! Now when people mention Clinton they credit HIM with things done by REPUBLICANS!
Democrats must have a Kaleidoscope view of history…and that’s the most polite analogy I have to share!

..."not in line with what Jesus taught"? I suppose Abortion and Same Sex Marriage is?
Tell me how it is that you "think" democrats are closer to the teachings of Jesus? Who is fighting for School Prayer? Who is fighting for "Ten Commandments" displayed at courthouses?
Who battles for Gay rights? Who wrongly asserts that "separation of church and state" are a constitutional guarantee?

I'd say.....Dick Cheney supports gay rights (gay marriage)

I'd say.....Laura Bush, Barbara Bush & Condoleezza Rice supports a womans right to choose (abortion)

And nowhere in the Bible does it speak about prayer in school or where to display the ten commandments!
