Little evidence supports Obama's pitch that taxing highest earners will cut deficit

Published December 05, 2012

FoxNews.com

While President Obama campaigns hard for Congress to raise taxes on America’s highest earners — insisting on no deal to resolve the looming fiscal crisis without it — there is little evidence to back up his sales pitch that it will go a long way to reducing the nation’s runaway deficit.

In fact, history shows that similar tax hikes resulted in less additional revenue than expected, and other unintended consequences.

Economists point to then-British Prime Minister Gordon Brown’s proposal in April 2010 to increase the marginal tax rate by 10 percent — to 50 percent — on residents earning more than $1 million. As a consequence, the number of people declaring that amount of income or more dropped from 16,000 to 6,000 in the 2010-2011 tax year, according to Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs, the United Kingdom’s tax collection agency.

Before Brown’s proposal, Britain’s wealthiest composed roughly 9 percent of the country’s tax pool. That percentage dropped by half — to roughly 4.4 percent — after the proposal.

Guide to the fiscal crisis -- how bad can it get?

With the non-stop posturing in Washington over the looming fiscal crisis, it's easy to lose sight of what's at stake.

Simply put, D.C. economists say that failing to avert the double-whammy of tax hikes and spending cuts could send the country back into recession. The impact is so devastating because so many areas of the budget and tax policy are affected.

The following is a breakdown of what happens next month if lawmakers fail to reach a deal -- as well as the Democratic and Republican proposals.

Bush-era tax rates

* Without a deal, these tax rates will rise for everybody on Jan. 1. That means a $2,000-a-year hit for a middle-income household, but the rate for every income tax bracket would rise. Taxes would also go up on investment income like capital gains, with that rate rising from 15 percent to 20 percent for most earners. Dividends would be taxed like regular income, as opposed to a flat rate of 15 percent.
* Under the Obama administration alternative plan, the current tax rates would stand for all but the top 2 percent of earners. For households making over $250,000, though, rates would rise, with the top rate going from 35 percent to 39.6 percent. The plan would also raise capital gains and dividends rates -- all told, the administration is looking to raise $960 billion over 10 years this way.
* Under the House Republicans' plan, the current tax rates would be preserved for everybody. However, Republicans propose raising $800 billion over 10 years by limiting deductions for top earners and other tax reform measures.

No need to worry your pea tea warped brain, President Obama was re-elected and the ACA will stand and just wait until he gets to make his Federal Justices and Supreme Court nominees.

Thank God, the United States of America is a Republic....INDEED
“Health Care should be a right for all paid for by all no different than the Police, the fire department and the Military” The government is there to provide PROTCTIONS for our God given rights… Life, LIBERTY, and the pursuit of Happiness. NOT healthcare… That is a socialist VALUE. Ask the countries going BANKRUPT because of that value.

Life, LIBERTY, and the pursuit of happiness... are in fact FREE values… HEALTHCARE provided by the government is UNSUSTAINABLE, therefore is NOT a right and should never be considered as such.

You are in fact a socialist, and therefore against LIBERTY.

Pentagon now preparing for massive cuts as fiscal negotiations appear stalled

The Pentagon said Wednesday it is now preparing for billions of dollars in budget cuts should President Obama and congressional Republicans fail to reach an alternative plan by Jan. 1.

The move breaks from earlier statements that no plans were being made – a signal that difficulties reaching a deal are beyond the public stalemate or so-called “political theater” and that Washington officials are bracing for the worst.

Pentagon spokesman George Little said the Office of Management and Budget instructed the department to begin preparing for the roughly $500 billion cuts over the next 10 years – a situation resulting from both sides failing earlier to reach a more measured approach to cutting the country’s roughly $16 trillion deficit.

Little said the department is looking for programs to cut and is developing a plan to announce possible changes to its millions of personnel.

He also repeated that the cuts – known as “sequestration”– would be "devastating” and could result in major changes to national defense strategy, at least in the short term.

Now what would the United States of America Health Care have to do with any of these country's?

NOTHING......

Their governments and their economies are not like our's now are they

You can post all your right wing tea party propaganda all day long it does not change the FACT

Obama was re-elected by the Majority of American citizen voters and the ACA isn't going anywhere and like I said wait until he places the Federal judges that are on the bench for life and do not have to be nominated and drug through the Congress for appointment and Obama most likely will nominate 2 TWO Supreme Court Justices for LIFE

British NHS Euthanizes the Elderly and Obamacare Follows Suit.

Government Sponsored Genocide
for the Britain’s Elderly
The undeniable fact is that the British NHS doctors are prematurely ending the lives of thousands of elderly hospital patients because they are difficult to manage and they wish to free up beds. However, the main motivation for this attack upon humanity is that they are making money by eliminating the lives of the elderly in Britain. Researcher, Patrick Pullicino, states that NHS doctors have turned the use of a controversial death pathway into the equivalent of euthanasia of the elderly. Pullicino has extensively researched the issue and asserts that elderly patients, who could live longer, are prematurely placed on the LCP and it has now become an assisted death pathway rather than a care pathway. On average, patients submitting to LCP die within 33 hours.

I know you hate all Americans having health care and think it is akin to Communism but it is NOT it is humanity.
"I believe healthcare for all of our citizenry is LIBERTY" When the government CONTROLS it how is that LIBERTY?
"I know you hate all Americans having health care and think it is akin to Communism but it is NOT it is humanity." I don't hate Americans having health care... Government controlled health care is the exact KIN of communism or socialism, and Humanity is Liberty.

You are a socialist. NOT an American value.

I'm not bothering to post the same facts a second, or third, time.

Can you articulate how republicans are not liars or are you just refusing to do as you expect others to do? Are you willing to submit proof of your statements from an unbiased site (not republican in origin)? Perhaps it is that you can't do so as you can't back up what your fingers post.

Frankly, I found a much better site for having discussions so bothering with you is now moot.

So typical. The conservative can't see past his own nose as it is in the business of everyone else.

The title of the forum is 'republicans the party of liars'. Not one of you repubs has done a darn thing to dispute the title.

As usual...lol
