    “You could replace the Congress character with the prez”

    I think it should be add the prez, and the bureaucrats, and the lobbyists, and the lawyers, and the….etc. The D.C. area has the highest per capita income in the country. Considering the poverty of D.C. proper, that’s amazing. There are a lot of fat cats living in Washington, but it seems they have an over abundance of very plump ones, too, and they are plump at the taxpayers expense.

    The president admits he’s doing well and that his taxes are unfairly low.

    Taxation isn’t about fairness, it should be about revenue.

    “Lower rates of taxation will stimulate economic activity and so raise the levels of personal and corporate income as to yield within a few years an increased – not a reduced – flow of revenues to the federal government.”

    – John F. Kennedy, Jan. 17, 1963, annual budget message to the Congress, fiscal year 1964

    That was back when the top tax rate was 91%. It’s considerably lower now and there are so many loop holes and tax shelters, the rich pay even less than that. Beyond that, some like Mitt Romney just move it to off-shore tax havens to avoid paying any taxes at all on it.

    Of course all the republicans signed the pledge to Grover (don’t remember voting for him) not to raise taxes ever under any circumstance whatever. Ask the disabled Iraq vet how that’s working out for him.

    Raise taxes. Okay it’s done. Now how are they going to make up the deficit from the existing deficits per year (about 800 billion per year) and the increased revenues? There absolutely has to be spending cuts. Big ones. Someone needs to sit down face to face and work this out. Do it in private, without the media, no photo ops, the way all good political compromises are reached. Put the military on both sides of K street, take away their cell phones and keep the lobbyists locked up and mute until congress and the president are done working this out.

    They made big bucks making the problem. Now it’s time to earn their pay and pensions, etc. The largest responsibility is now with the citizens, who should hold each legislator’s feet to the fire. We cannot allow them to come up with another bandage to get us to the next round of talks (after vacation, of course). I know it’s a foreign idea, but it’s time for Congress to do its job.

    Waa- “off shore”, Waa – “loop holes” If they were illegal, they would have closed them. Your democrapic friends use them as well, you either choose to ignore it or delude yourself into thinking they don’t.
    What a rube!

    ‘Raise taxes. Okay it’s done. ’
    But it ain’t done. And Republicans are fighting like Hell to keep it from being done in order to protect the interests of the wealthy.
    I agree that spending must be lowered and that our representatives need to do that. If lobbyists were kept from Congress, legislators would seek them out anyway.
    The biggest problem is not the existence of lobbyists, but that they are allowed to bribe legislators. These bribes come not only in the form of campaign contributions, but also in post career jobs for legislators and staffers, travel, insider trading and lots more. That’s what must be addressed.
    There are plenty of small lobbyists that do a lot of good work, but do not get the same access to Congress that the big guys get.

    Obama’s supreme arrogance nullifies any compromises that might be possible. He doesn’t want compromises he wants it ALL his way!!!!!!
