    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    @Mr. King

    BTW, if it will affect you, you need a better accountant."
    Or not work for someone who has to use a lawyer and accountant to do their taxes. The fact that they have to pay a lawyer or an accountant means it will effect them and they might not be able to afford me after that. Pay the guy to defend you from the government and Obamacare or add another employee and make some more money, only to have to pay more for Obamacare and taxes.

    Good God a man with a brain….. good comment but sadly you are correct.

    @Mr. King

    You just did not listen. How about when Obama proposed the exact same strategy in 2011. Obama said it would net 1.2 trillion dollars but he also did not mention specifics.

    The answer? Cap deductions at 25K for everyone. That closes every loophole just a tad. You chose which ones you want to use and those of us that do not make so much money that our deductions could reach millions lose nothing with those that make millions only get 25K deducted.

    Too complicated for you?

    Closing loopholes as an alternative to raising the tax rate is code for no tax increases. Raising the tax rate (or allowing tax reductions to expire) is simple and can be done quickly and effectively. Overhauling the tax code could take years while they debate crossing the t’s and dotting the i’s.

    @TimeWeaver

    If I’m paying 28% and you’re paying 15% that is not happening. How do I know? I call it Math."
    yes math, Obama can not do math and it seems neither can you.
    capital gains tax vs income tax vs what Buffet and his secretary make right? That has been explained at nauseam. bottom line I am not for any income tax. period. FAIR TAX! If I make money I should be able to keep it! I pay for something at retail the company I am paying should collect a tax and pass it along to the government. It is that simple and upfront as you get.
