    Republicans continue to stand in the way of fairness.

    Maybe Etch A Sketch will change his position on the Buffet Rule once he reads this poll?

    Thank you for the great poll info. I figured that most Americans saw through the right wing attempt to divide americans by protecting the rich at the expense of the working poor.


    Bet your right that Romney will be drawing a new 'sketch' of his stand on the Buffet rule. LOL The guy is clueless as to what most Americans struggles are. Few other than the most partisan TBagger types actually believe the Buffet rule will hold back the rich from hiring and 'job creating', afterall they've had 10 + years to show us how that theory works and it never did, so Millionaire's and Billionaires, PAY UP. end all the tax breaks, and etc. that keeps them from paying what secretaries do.

    The general rule is that 100% of Americans tend to over-eat at Buffets. Bravo that the GOP didn't allow the liberals to over-indulge this time.

    That's what the dishwasher is hired for. Just leave it on the table and go get another clean plate.

    LOL ..... Let's just take a look at this Shall We?

    The Senate just attempted to pass legislation that has the OVERWHELMIMG blessing of the general population ....
    Over 72% of the general public AND 53% of registered republicans favor this bill
    But WAIT it gets better ..... The legislation PASSES with a majority of Senators VOTING for it .......
    But WHY doesn't it become LAW?

    BECAUSE NOW you need a super majority in the Senate to pass anything since Barack Obama became President the FILIBUSTER is the new Norm
    Everything needs a 60 vote majority and no longer a simple majority to pass as law

    YES America .... The republican are screwing you in the ass again.... WITHOUT LUBE

    This is where the right wing republicans are being hopelessly stupid. It is time to compel the richest 1% of Americans to start paying their fair share of taxes and than you most likely will see serious budget deficit reductions. Until then, the US is sliding towards bankruptcy similar to the serious problems confronting Greece, Ireland, and Spain.

    Explain to me how another tax rule on top of the thousands of pages we have now without closing existing loopholes and enforcing what we have already on the books is going to make one damn bit of difference? icon_neutral.gif


    Besides making politicians look like they have done something to strike a blow for the 'little people' and making ignorant voters think that something has been done to "level the playing field' ? icon_rolleyes.gif

    The Repubs all voted against Obamacare because less than a majority of Americans supported it.

    They claimed that passing Obamacare was an outrage because it was against the will of We The People.

    Now the Repubs have all voted against the Buffet Rule - EVEN THOUGH AN OVERWHELMING MAJORITY OF AMERICANS SUPPORT IT.

    The HYPOCRITICAL Repubs are spitting on the will of We The People.
