    Actually, Boehner has proposed closing a number of known loopholes in the tax system as an alternative to a tax hike.
    []
    His logic is that by closing the loopholes, the government will collect the same amount of tax revenues as a hike would.

    Yeah, until the 1%ers Tax Lawyers found the NEW Loopholes designed into the system!
    Just remember the deathless words of Leona Helmsley, the “Poster Girl” for the 1%ers;
    “Taxes?? My dear, only the LITTLE people pay taxes!”

    The loopholes are controlled by the bureaucracy that writes the tax code. I’m having difficulty imagining Congress having the ambition to go through thousands and thousands of pages of tax code and closing specific loopholes although that is probably what needs to be done. Some of those loopholes fall into the “Why is that deductible!?” category.

    No one is stopping the ‘rich’ Republicans from paying extra taxes but I have yet to see it happen…

    Obama’s dream. It is an Obama Optical illusion the 1% would only cover what a very, very small part of the gap. but loony libs do not care because they believe it fair. That is all Obama wants. Not jobs. Not revenue, but taking care of the wealth envy class warfare.
    While you loony libs worshiping the guy for trying to stick it to the man, Obama says millionaires billionaires but it will hit anyone making 200,000 and he has changed from 1% to 2% in his rhetoric and reality it is going to hit anyone who is paying taxes!

    Rather than go through thousands of pages of tax code how about if they throw it out in its entirety. Starting from scratch they could craft a simple effective code. They won’t but they could.

    Bring back the 75% tax rates on the rich that were in effect during the 1960’s. (JFK lowered them from 91% to 75% but closed most of the loopholes which brought in more money including from his own family) Restore the Glass Steagall act. Restore the estate tax that only hit the wealthy but that the far “right” media convinced people that it would hit them too. Haul the thieves of wall street and the thieving CEO’s into court to be tried for their financial crimes.

    The last bastion of the freeloading conservative nut-cases. You give all your money to the government and I’ll keep all of mine.

    You seem to have mistaken the government for a charity.

    Agreed. Unfortunately, most of the proposals I’ve heard of are TOO simple, sacrificing fiscal resposibility, or fairness, for the sake of simplicity.

    @CasualBrowser

    Actually, the ideal Republican based "Tax Code " would have forms like this;
    Line 1. How much did you make last year?
    Line 2. How much do you have left?
    Line 3. Send in Line 2.
    Line 4. If you made over $250.000 last year, ignore Line 1,2, and 3, and keep everything you made.

    Cus in the book of Obama the rich do not need the money they mean and stingy and they steal from those who do not make money and they have lawyers and accountants and other tax cheat and blah blah.
    Do you know who the “rich” Obama wants to tax to save us all" Try Cosby’s Huxstables. He was a Doctor and she a lawyer. Try the guy three or 4 doors down from me who has a repair truck in front of his house. He “makes” in income more then Obama’s magical millionaire billionaire 200,000 on his personal income. He also employs 3 others. I am sure he can afford to not pay one of those in order to stay working.

    You post this same BS several times a day, and still nobody is listening to you.

    You have heard but you do not comprehend. If you did you might have a word or two to disprove me.
    Obama has said millionaire line to many times and you believe him, yet reality it is those making 200,000 who he is targeting. He was saying 1% now after the election 2%
    Prove me wrong.
    oh as for your non answer…yawn
