If the democrats ran McDonald's, the price of a meal for the family might be whatever you AND your investments earn in one hour. Nevermind that the size of the family could be anywhere from 1 to 10 or that Bill Gates and his investments earn as much in one second as I earn in one hour. That would be a flat tax. In Washington D.C. the democrats look at your 2,000 hours and decide that some poor people should pay zero to forty hours worth of money for the year while others should pay 600 to 800 hours worth of money for the same year. If we are created equal, give us equal tax bills, like $2,000 per human per year. And cut the spending to that level while you are at it.

Ok,now are you willing to pay your fair share,you did vote for that right? Obama said everyone should pay their fair share right? Are you in favor of that? It's amazing how you now dodge the question after you said you supported the savior who said everyone must pay their fair share. Change your mind?

At the first Reagan-Mondale debate in 1984, Reagan set the record straight about Social Security.

“Social Security, let’s lay it to rest once and for all… Social security has nothing to do with the deficit. Social Security is totally funded by the payroll tax levied on employer and employee. If you reduce the outgo of Social Security, that money would not go into the general fund or reduce the deficit. It would go into the Social Security Trust Fund. So Social Security has nothing to do with balancing a budget or raising or lowering the deficit.”

At least Social Security is funded, which is more than we can say for Republican “entitlements” like wars, corporate subsidies, and tax cuts to the rich. Which party is the fiscally responsible party again?

how is asking the rich to pay 40% while the rest pay less than 35% fair? Like I said earlier, even the flat tax is unfair to the rich since 20% of $1,000,000 is larger than 20% of $50,000.

So what Reagan says is irrelevant in 2012?

I sure remember his name getting mentioned a heck of alot during the debates and also almost daily on Fox.

The 2012 RNC also honored Reagans legacy with an almost 4 minute highlight video.

As usual you cherry pick what is acceptable.

It was refreshing to read what Reagan said: "Social security has nothing to do with the deficit."

Finally a Republican that deals in facts.

You added something that President Reagan did not say didn't you? Must you always post lies and half truths to get your points accross. Back then it was fully funded but now borrowing against the fund has created a problem. You either like to lie or you are ignorant as to government accounting methods. Which is it? Read this also by President Reagan. http://www.humanevents.com/2012/12/05/ronald-... Kind of rings a bell right?

Everyone must pay their fair share,Obama said it,he won re-election so it has to be that way. I know he said that at least a couple of times right. The fiscal cliff sounds like it will require everyone to pay their fair share just like the President said,he did say that I think. As Larry would say-"get er done"

The truth will set you free. Unless, that is, you're a Republican and the subject in taxes. As the New York Times reported on Thursday, "The Congressional Research Service has withdrawn an economic report that found no correlation between top tax rates and economic growth, a central tenet of conservative economy theory, after Senate Republicans raised concerns about the paper's findings and wording."
As documented in "15 Things the GOP Doesn't Want You to Know about Taxes and the Debt," virtually every article of conservative faith on tax cuts is demonstrably false. In contrast, what the yanked CRS report had to say on the history of tax cuts, productivity, investment, economic growth and job creation was indisputably true: Throughout the late-1940s and 1950s, the top marginal tax rate was typically above 90%; today it is 35%. Additionally, the top capital gains tax rate was 25% in the 1950s and 1960s, 35% in the 1970s; today it is 15%. The real GDP growth rate averaged 4.2% and real per capita GDP increased annually by 2.4% in the 1950s. In the 2000s, the average real GDP growth rate was 1.7% and real per capita GDP increased annually by less than 1%.
There is not conclusive evidence, however, to substantiate a clear relationship between the 65-year steady reduction in the top tax rates and economic growth. Analysis of such data suggests the reduction in the top tax rates have had little association with saving, investment, or productivity growth.
However, the top tax rate reductions appear to be associated with the increasing concentration of income at the top of the income distribution. The share of income accruing to the top 0.1% of U.S. families increased from 4.2% in 1945 to 12.3% by 2007 before falling to 9.2% due to the 2007-2009 recession. The evidence does not suggest necessarily a relationship between tax policy with regard to the top tax rates and the size of the economic pie, but there may be a relationship to how the economic pie is sliced.

most all the politicians today are to blame, from the top on down.

i do find it interesting that the president made a huge deal before the elections about how everyone has to be willing to negotiate,then comes out after the election and says he wont budge in his stance.

i believe that this all has to be figured out before dec 18 so it all can be written up in legaleze before its signed,so i would suggest all them over-paid do nothings in BOTH parties get on the stick.

anyone wanna bet that this will all get pushed into the new year with another extension so the new sessions of clowns can give us some more of the washington runaround?

the more things change,the more they remain the same.....
