    the senate passed a deal. Unless your making over 400,000 your taxes wont go up ....and im doubting many if any here are making that. House will probably vote on it tomorrow.

    Question for the libatards. How much more revenue will raising the taxes on $400,000 +" so called rich " bring in?? From what I understand the difference in revenue will only run the US for 2 weeks.

    Im sure if i read it from your side it will not be enough, if i read from my side, its enough... Bottom line.,....99.999% of the people on this forum will NOT see a tax increase...

    Another example of the "Grand Disconnect"
    When the rich guys that own the corporations pay more in taxes we pay more for products.

    if we taxed every dollar over $200k. at 100%. we would still run a tax deficit.

    we have a spending problem not a revenue problem.

    Yes, we will. And our children and grand children will. Even if you make only make $20,000 today, in ten years you should be making $40,000 just due to inflation. In 20 years you should be making double that (give or take). THAT is what is so insidiously clever about tax schemes like this. Few people oppose them at the time because they all think that it won't affect them!

    Go back and look at the history of income tax. When it started less than 1% of the people in the US made enough money that they had to pay anything. Compare that to today.

    prices of goods goes up in low tax times..were at an all time low tax time and goods and services have been going up for the last 12 years while workers wages have remained the same or below.......so I think they go up as the share holders need more money.. taxed or not.
    next lets tax the churches that want a voice in politics....If they keep quite in politics keep their status, maybe....cut the subsidizing of oil and big business....pass a decent jobs bill, then maybe we can move forward faster then we are now...

    Yes, and the Non-profit Universities like Harvard & Yale too.
    These schools DO NOT even have to pay property taxes!
    If they can pay Million dollar salaries, than they can pay taxes.

    Re: READ THIS....The Political Thread 2013....

    The problem is partially that they make their own rules.
    So
    How about making all of their records public to get elected.
    How about if they could not engage in lobbying until they were out of office,for the amount of time they were in.
    It would be nice if the politicians pay was locked at whatever it was when they went into office
    How about make all of the politicians pay taxes for life, at whatever the highest rate is with no deductions.
    Only organizations that have to pay taxes would be allowed to donate money for elections.
    Any other ideas to bring them down to earth.

    Add another one to this list.
    Only tax payers can vote.
    Those on tax payer assistance cannot vote.

    Republicans Accuse Obama of Using Position as President to Lead Country
    Posted by Andy Borowitz

    obama-desk-465.jpg

    WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Responding to reports that President Obama is considering signing as many as nineteen executive orders on gun control, Republicans in Congress unleashed a blistering attack on him today, accusing Mr. Obama of “cynically and systematically using his position as President to lead the country.”

    Spearheading the offensive was Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas), who charged the President with the “wanton exploitation of powers that are legally granted to him under the U.S. Constitution.”

    Calling him the “Law Professor-in-Chief,” Rep. Stockman accused Mr. Obama of “manipulating a little-known section of the Constitution,” Article II, which outlines the power of the President.

    “President Obama looks down the list of all of the powers that are legally his and he’s like a kid in a candy store,” Rep. Stockman said. “It’s nauseating.”

    The Texas congressman said that if Mr. Obama persists in executing the office of the Presidency as defined by the Constitution, he could face “impeachment and/or deportation.”

    Noting that the President has not yet signed the executive orders on gun control, Rep. Stockman said that he hoped his stern words would serve as a wake-up call to Mr. Obama: “Mr. President, there’s still time for you to get in line. But if you continue to fulfill the duties of President of the United States that are expressly permitted in the Constitution, you are playing with fire.”
