House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi couldn't be more clear: The Bush tax cuts for the rich have to expire.

When ABC’s Martha Raddatz asked Pelosi in an interview whether she would accept a deal that did not include tax rate hikes for the rich, the House’s top Democrat had a short answer:“No.”

“The president made it very clear in his campaign that there is not enough—there are not enough resources,” Pelosi said in an interview aired Sunday on ABC's “This Week.

“Just to close loopholes is far too little money … If it's going to bring in revenue, the president has been very clear that the higher income people have to pay their fair share.”

Despite that, House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) is trying to pretend otherwise, telling Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer that Pelosi and President Obama aren't on the same page on the budget.

“What I hear you saying is that the president is not in lock-step with Nancy Pelosi when it comes to tax rates versus revenue meaning and suggesting that he may go along with your deal as opposed to raising tax rates. Do you see that as a possibility?” Hemmer asked.

“I see that as a possibility. I think elections are over. Let’s sit down and find a bipartisan way that we can solve this problem, not go to a fiscal cliff while at the same time have a pro-growth agenda where we grow jobs,” McCarthy said.

Here's what President Obama said about tax cuts for the wealthy in his press conference last Wednesday: "But when it comes to the top 2 percent, what I’m not going to do is extend further a tax cut for folks who don’t need it, which would cost close to a trillion dollars."

That sounds an awful lot like what Pelosi was saying this weekend. Which means, as usual, House Republican leadership is full of shit.

If you think Pelosi's taxes will go up you are dreaming. Their rules don't apply to them. Just like health care. They have their own special health care system. Obamacare is not good enough for them but it's good enough for the "little people".

If you are talking about unregistered Smart Liberal, you are right about him lying.

How much is the left asking to raise taxes on the top 2% and how much income do they expect it to raise? If they doubled the FIC all tax payers it would still not be enough to cover our deficit.

The expiration of the Obama Tax cuts will not even put a tiny dent in the deficit.$16 trillion dollars people! That is how far in the hole we are. Raising taxes on the few producers left in this country will not impact that deficit.

We need to cut spending.

Incorrect. We need to get the rich backing paying their pay dhare of taxes again and look for waste in fraud in our government. There are few things outside of military spending that can be cut.

51% of households pay nothing in Federal Income Taxes.

The top 10% earn 19% of the income in this country. Yet, that same top 10% pays 70% of the Federal Income Taxes.

When will the 51% that pay nothing in Federal Income Taxes start paying their fair share?

Can you say "off topic"?

This thread is about getting the rich to start paying their fair share of taxes again, Saul.

Good drugs today, huh?

What part of the top 10% of earners paying 70% of taxes does not apply to Pelosi saying the rich need to pay more taxes?

What part of 51% paying nothing in Federal Income Taxes does not apply?

Why won't you just answer Bridge's question: "What is their fair share?"

How was his post that directly responded to your post over "fair share" off-topic? Does not what everyone else paying relate to a "fair share"?

I'd be happy if the rich paid the same tax rates as in the 1950's, 1960's or 1970's.

Hey dipsh*t, if you think you are worth more money, get a job that pays you more money. Can't get a job that pays you more? Then improve your skill set so that you can get a higher paying job.

Otherwise, shut your mouth and say "thank you" to the person that gives you a paycheck each week.

Or better yet...start your own business and show the rest of the world what a benevolent employer pays his/her employees.
