catfish5 saidDamn Repubs would rather stay loyal to norquist than hard working Americans. Repeal the Bush tax cuts already!!
Even if we repealed the cuts and raised taxes 100% on the rich it wouldn't fix our problems because it would all need to go against the debt for years and years. We need to enact massive deep cuts. There's no way around.
Why cant people just realize that we need to cut spending and raise taxes to get out of this situation?
One extreme or the other isnt going to do anything.
And yes, repeal the bush tax cuts on the rich, shame on obama for extending them.
That doesn't work though because liberals will just make sure that all the extra revenue coming in from the higher taxes goes towards more spending and programs rather than the debt. When liberals talk about raising taxes on the rich, they aren't wanting any of that to go towards the debt, they are wanting it to go towards more gravy.
Yes because raising taxes and cutting spending means raising taxes and raising spending.
Can you please proofread what you write.
It is what has always happened and what will continue to happen.
Again, please go reread my post then read yours, if you cant figure out why you sound moronic, then maybe you should stop posting.
I already know what you're saying.
Try to get liberals to agree on a plan where all additional revenue raised will go against the debt and not to bolster current or additional programs that are "short on money", it isn't going to happen.
Every liberal I know of talks about raising taxes as a way to "subsidize" programs, not to get us out of debt.
