You poor, poor pitiful man. We have had progressive tax rates in this country for as long as there has been an income tax. Suddenly, now, you think the GOP has been against that? It is also a shame that you think the only place to get the truth is from Fox and Limbaugh. Not even Fox and Limbaugh believe that. P.T. Barnum would have loved you.<quoted text>
The GOP has no problem passing it provided that DumBama is either serious about spending cuts (which he isn't) or that ALL PEOPLE keep their tax rates.
This is just another example of what I talk about when I say Republicans are for treating everybody the same, while Democrats divide people in this country and decide who the winners and losers will be. If you're not typically a supporter of the Democrat party, you are in the losers list.
DumBama has a choice: keep the tax rates or not. Otherwise, the other 98% of people will get their taxes increased. The problem is that you have to watch Fox news to get the real story instead of the liberal lies that the Republicans are for increasing taxes on the 98% of us. The ball is every bit in Obama's court as it is in Republicans. But again, for the truth, you have to watch Fox news or listen to Limbaugh. Otherwise the same lies get spread: Republicans are in charge of extending the tax rates or not. More liberal lies.
But, I will agree with your let's treat everyone the same argument on this one. We should return to the Clinton tax rates for everyone.
