If the cut off for higher taxes is $500,000 then WV will fare even better...."In the region, only West Virginia has a smaller share of half-millionaires with a quarter of one percent bringing home more than $500,000".

I hope all of you know that although you might think people who will be required to pay higher taxes will be harmed, it will be the general public who will pay. Most will actually raise the prices on services or goods to pay their tax bill. Just how it is. Some people will be layed off, and some will lose benefits. So if you think the more well off people will pay the tax bill without affecting you, relatives, neighbours you will be surprised. Better prepare for a recession.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH

Don't push me over the Fiscal Cliff please!

I am a Federal Worker and over the past 3 years we have sacrificed 103 Billion Dollars!
Federal Workers, Social Security, or Medicare did not cause the deficit! The Bush Tax Cuts and Special Tax Rates for the Wealthy 2% contributed to our once great Country (U.S.A.)deficit.
I would like to see a Tax Break for the "Middle Class", Definition: A single person with a net income of less than $70,000 per year!
No negotiations, allow the Wealthy 2% pay there fair share of taxes, we must go over the Fiscal Cliff. After we go over the Fiscal Cliff, Allow no negotiations in any manner towards allowing any tax breaks to the Wealthy 2%! DO NOT REFORM Social Security or Medicare! Remove the Burden of Supplemental Security Income from Social Security and make States responsible for Welfare/Supplemental Security Income!

I stand with President Obama!

"Wake Up Coal Miners" Clear the coal dust from your Eyes! Remember the mid 70's!

All that overtime, doubletime, 70 - 80 hours a week you have been working has caught up with you! You have flooded the "MARKET", the ships are circuling off the coast of CHINA! The Big Coal Companies wants you to believe it is because of Obama but the truth is the ships are circuling off the coast of CHINA and coal prices are down! That's OK, vote for Mitt Romney, when times are hard there will be "NO" help for you but the RICH MAN will be getting Richer! Your Parents Social Security will be attacked, No more social programs, and remember the name Bush and the WAR, Deficit, and lack of JOBS he contributed to the USA.

The majority of coal in our region is Bitumnas coal, coal to make steel. I say consever our Natural Resources, Stop any attempt to turn our Natural gas into liquid form to be shipped overseas! Abolish the Free Trade Organization and Acts, Produce what we consume in America by Americans! Put American's back to work, pay off our Deficit, and stop shipping our work, natural resources, and status as a Super Power overseas! "Wake Up Coal Miners and America!

There will come a time when CHINA will come to collect there $$$$$ and we will not be able to defend ourselfs because of no coal to make steal, nothing to run our planes, tanks, etc. on, no oil. The time is now to act, the majority of our children are so babied and given everything they want, so damn spoilled by sparing the ROD and teaching the CHILDREN, Did you turn out so bad? Afer all, they will be our leaders, school teachers, scientist, ETC in the future!

Our Politicians are Rich, Greedy, and wanting more of what OUR Grandfathers and Fathers have fought for, such as Unionism, Social Security, Safety, Fair Wages, ETC. on and on! Lobyiest ( Big Corperation Reps.) are killing us! All our Politicians are corrupt, they are selling out America and the American people!

There, I have solved America's Problems and the WORLD thinks the people of West Virginia is just a bunch of HICKS for voting for a CONVICT!!!! "Wake Up America"! I don't think so but if they can keep us down, take more from us, and TURN us into what CHINA was not so many years ago, Our corrupt Politicians will do it! There is not that much of a difference between the DEM/REP parties today, something has to change soon or America will be a thing of the past and we will be a One World Order with CHINA in control and that is Communism! Being told What, When, Where, and How to do things in everyday life! Freedom is NEVER Free! Let's talk about the REAL Issues, I look at Politics in a simple manner and it appauls me to see that West By God Virginia has turned into a REPUBLICAN STATE. What the hell have you parents been teaching your children? Do all you Parents make over $200,000 a year? I am a Federal worker and I don't even make $40,000 a year! A simple lesson on Rep/Dem is Republicans are for the rich! Democrates leans towards the POOR, that's under $150,000 a years income!

"Wake the Hell Up West Virginia and America" Right now all we can do is VOTE YOUR INCOME STATUS and be THANKFULL if we have a JOB and ATTEMPT to put the best person in OFFICE at this time! But I see change coming soon!

I AM ONE PISSED OFF WEST BY GOD VIRGINIAN and VERY DAMN PROUD TO BE A VETERAN and AMERICAN, "WAKE UP AMERICA"!

TY for lettin me VENT and I speak a lot of TRUTH from my heart!

Oh just great. we now have one more class warrior on here. These people are so damn blinded by their envy of succcessful people that they will cut their noses off to spite their faces.

These are the same dumbasses that want us to move away from coal and more into tourism, while at the same time wanting to take more disposable income from Americans. WV does have a tourist industry and a lot of second homes. When people get to keep more of their money, they spend it and working people get jobs.

I hope that dumbass Obama drives us the hell right over the fiscal cliff and the dumb masses get what they voted for. Unfortunately it wont happen because Boehner has no balls and is running scared.

You damn liberals are so ADHD that you have the attention span of a squirrel. You dont remember the so called yacht tax that was designed to tax the wealthy who owned yachts. All the tax did was destroy the American boat making industry. Hard working Americans were put out of work, to satisfy the dumbass liberals sense of fairness. The only consolation was that the boat makers were in New England where they vote for liberals, so in a sense they got what they deserve. Sort of like those whiny ass liberals up in New York who crucified Bush over Katrina but are now looking for Obama everday to come in to rescue them and he is no where to be found. Note to NY, your Messiah is going to Hawaii while your liberal, yankee ass is left out in the cold. Should have got your money before the election. Maybe they can cozy up to Chris Chrisies blubber and stay warm.

Yes, my comments have been judged clueless and nuts; therefore they must be right on target. What happened in these peoples lives to make them so bitter and envious of the success of others.
They stand around drinking the Obama Kool Aid while he destroys the country. Obama and Boehner are both too stupid to know that the answer to our financial problems is to grow the economy.
Over the years when I have faced financial problems, there have been three options - borrow (which has to be paid back), cut expenses (lower my standard of living) or to grow my income. The latter is always preferable. Raising taxes has never raised income to the government. Liberals want to keep pointing to Bill Clinton, they fail to acknowledge that Bill Clinton cut the capital gains tax and was the reciepent of the dot com explosion that pumped billions into the economy. The Bush Tax cuts pumped money into the government. The problem was the politicians wasted it. Liberals have no knowledge of history and have no idea that America grew to be a great nation due to foreign investment in an economy with low taxes and a business friendly government. That is still happening today, just in other parts of the world.
They love to point to the 90% tax rate back in the 50's. There were less than 300 people in the country at the time who were in that tax rate and due to loopholes they didnt pay it either. America grew in the fiftys under heavy taxes because there was no where else in the world to invest and there was no one else to buy from. The rest of the developed world had been destroyed by WWII.

Pure bullshit.

Looks like huge giant hunks of fed gov't. spending is going to social programs. The country has a spending problem, not a revenue problem. But don't let facts stop your class warfare rant.

Exactly! It's amazing how many socialist fools bring up that argument about top marginal rates being higher in previous and more prosperous decades as if the higher marginal rates were the reason for the greater economic growth. They think the economy operates in a vacuum with just revenues and taxes to take, as their MSNBC talking points didn't cover the macroeconomic dynamics at play.

"There is no single policy we have passed that has added as much to the debt, or that is projected to add as much to the debt in the future, as the Bush tax cuts, which Republicans passed in 2001 and 2003 and Obama and the Republicans extended in 2010. To my knowledge, all elected Republicans want to make the Bush tax cuts permanent. Democrats, by and large, want to end them for
income over $250,000."

"If there’d been no Bush tax cuts, no wars, no financial crisis and everything else had been the same? Debt would be between 20 and 30 percent of GDP today, rather than almost 100 percent."

With all due respect, you never post facts, you post left wing talking points. You actually dont have a damn clue what you are talking about. The bush tax cuts increased revenue to the government. That is a fact pure and simple. Then we had a recession. We always collect less taxes in a recession. You are too blinded by your class warfare to have any objective look at this issue. The President's proposed tax cuts would raise 80 billion dollars, that is less than 8 cents on the dollar on the national deficit. You could take 100 percent of all the top 2% and that would not put a debt in the national debt. This is all about politics and envy, pure and simple.
