Ha-rumph, hur-umph, harump...I didn't get a harump outa that guy?
Here's one vote for letting us go off the fiscal cliff. There is no more
compromising in Washington any more.
The opposite of "pro" is "con"The opposite of
"progress" is CONGRESS!We can't even agree to cut taxes
So much for the fiscal conservatives:There are 47 Republicans in the
Senate, and their measure seems certain to fail. The $405 billion GOP measure
would continue tax cuts for everyone next year, including the highest
earners.The $250 billion Democratic bill would continue tax cuts
through 2013 for everyone but individuals who earn at least $200,000 yearly and
couples making $250,000.The Republican plan will increase the
national debt at a rate nearly twice as high as the democrat plan.
50% of Americans pay 0 income tax.I'd say the wealthy are doing
their share.It's time for the rest of us to start doing ours.
Even a so-called flat tax means that the rich as paying for the great majority
of what others use. This is called stealing.
If what is at issue was a TAX CUT then it might have some merit and reality. But
this implied tax cut does not cut any taxes for anyone in the last 30 years but
it has devastated our Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security of millions of
retired and elderly Americans. This tax cut is sacrificing the elderly to raise
taxes on workers.What they are debating is the defunding, not
collecting money from workers to keep SSA, Medicare, and Medicaid trust fund
accounts active but shut them down. These tax cuts defund social services that
are the life blood of retirement health care and survival.The Senate
wants to destroy the SSA, Medicare, and Medicaid that maintains lives of
millions of retired americans. A true tax cut would change what you pay to the
IRS for income taxes and the federal budget. The Tax Cut as it exists does not
reduce taxes to the IRS, it raises taxes to the IRS as retirement non taxable
income is converted to taxable income.This "hoax" has gone
on long enough, end this debacle of destroying the elderly then replace it with
tax cuts to the IRS.
