    i.e. Rich people stimulus is okay and should be permanent, but poor people stimulus will destroy the country.

    Gosh Gricks, aren’t you learning SO MUCH from ScottPM, Howie and Ima?
    The three are so very professorial—-must all hold degrees from Glen Beck U.

    These are not new taxes, they are the taxes the people who can afford to pay should have been paying all along.

    I may be misreading this dialog (no great surprise), but isn’t part of the proposal by Obama to raise the tax rate on capital gains and dividends? I am retired and a portion of my income is dividends and cap gains from stocks. I kind of got lost in all the accusations being bandied about. Sometimes the back and forth on these columns can be hard to follow.

    The Bush tax-cuts for the wealthy are not sustainable and have to go. The tax cuts for the middle class need to stay (for now at least) in order to prevent a recession. Thirty percent of the 2008 stimulus was tax cuts for small businesses. This cartoon has no merit or base in the factual world.

    Tom the Dancing Bug today has the REAL answer for those arguing to defend the “1%”.

    @Ms. Ima

    Exactly just what part of the word “temporary” do you not understand?

    And nobody is saying that even those temporary increases should be increased for either middle class workers or for small businesses.

    If your taxable income is in excess of $200,000 to $250,000 per year (with all the tax deductions for small business) then you sure as heck are not a small business person!

    @Robert Landers

    By the way Ima, you do know that a great many of the “small” businesses in this country only exist as a tax write off on wages otherwise earned by those very small business people that own and run them?

    But know, that these are not tax deductions that I disagree with, as many of these people are indeed good hard working Americans, and should get every break possible. But, even that level is NOT what is being discussed in the negotiations to avoid the fiscal cliff that would hurt everybody, possibly even you!

    @HOWGOZIT

    Rats! And here I was hoping you choked on a pretzel before your turkey entree…

    Still alive and leaking pus, I see!

    “And then they could go back to saying that the Democrats presided over the largest tax increase in the history of the world (when you include Estate taxes, which it would)”
    -
    Because of inflation and population growth, all income tax increases are the largest in the history of the world.

    @ansonia

    As far as “wanting” to lose, I think it’s way more complicated than that, and some Democrats voting in the primary helped effect a McCain nomination.
    -
    Democrats nominated McCain?
    Romney, too, huh?
    Probably W, as well, making the Democrats responsible for the invasion of Iraq.
    -
    Them Democrats are really really clever,eh?

    Because in the last election, the American people said they wanted to do away with the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy and start generating more revenue. Duh.
