    If the $1 million is in capital gains, the cut is waaay more.

    Cut everyone’s taxes.
    Propose and pass an across the board rate reduction of 2% and a 0% rate of increase in the base line budget and make them permanent.
    Lower everyone’s taxes and freeze spending at its current levels and watch the economy grow.
    The problem is, the left doesn’t care about any of that, they only care about the politics of fairness. They only care about who looks like they care about the little folk and who takes the blame for caring only about the rich.
    Democrats are despicable political hacks.

    Stop spending, rebuilding the infrastructure with abundant labor and cheap money just makes sense, so don’t do it.

    -
    There’s a lot of Democrats and others on the left-wing of the political spectrum, so you’re painting with an extremely broad brush. Don’t you think there’s some who don’t fit the label you’ve slapped on them? Is it just or moral to call a decent, honest person a “hack”? Just because someone is different from you, doesn’t mean that there’s something wrong with them, or that they’re evil. Perhaps you’d find some peace of mind in treating others with more respect and kindness.

    Nice words, CB. They are wasted on Trolls like nm.

    Thank-you RDS, but hope springs eternal. nm, like all people, has the capacity for love and empathy. In this season, when we wish each other “peace on Earth” and “good will toward men”, I’d also like to wish everyone hope, that those who seek to tear them down would see others as what they are: Brothers and sisters. May all who’ve been slapped with a label, whether it be DimLib, Repugnican, Troll, or any other epithet, find love and solidarity with their accusers.

    Well, his user name (@narrowminded) DID forewarn you, @CasualBrowser! Thanks for giving him the benefit of the doubt and taking on the good fight to try to open that closed mind just a little. Most of us just ignore such a rigid ignoramus.

    actually, if you check your Bible, it says “towards
    men of goodwill”, not the way you said it

    Wow, A liberal who does not understand it is OUR MONEY! Santa is not to take it from us only to give us back a small %as he sees fit.
    We the tax payers EARNED IT! And Mr. Community organizer in Chief for the most part we did build it and want to be paid for our hard work! The myth that the million and billionaires are not doing their “fair share” only buys votes and support from the ignorant dumb masses who want to be a class warfare wealth envy stooge.

    Right, Narrow. It’s worked SO well for the past 12 years. Actually, starving the country has never actually been good for the country and its inhabitants. It’s notable that when you look at the economics since about 1930 EVEN THE RICH DO BETTER under Democratic governance, and with higher tax rates, because the economy does so much better under a rational, balanced system then under one that starves the middle class to give even more to the rich.

    I resent people saying that Congress spends like a drunken sailor. A drunk sailor quits drinking when he runs out of money…

    …until the NEXT time we try to balance the budget…

    You forget that a balanced budget is only important when a Democrat is President. The second a Republican is sworn in to office, deficits will no longer matter.

    There HAS to be a fundamental shift in the mindset of EVERYONE involved in the budget mess, or NOTHING will ever change.
    The People who signed the treasonous “Norquist Pledge” HAVE to come to their senses, and realize that you cannot, repeat CANNOT ever get out of hock without some increase in the tax levels, unless an alternate source of revenue is found.
    Also, there HAS to be a fundamental reduction in expenditures by the federal Government, on ALL LEVELS, or we are NEVER going to get out
    of this mess!
    Start by cutting budgets of ALL federal Departments, and bureaus across the board by a flat 15%, cutting the salaries of Congressmen and Women, The President, Vice-President, and most other high ranking officials by at least 25%. reducing ALL foreign aid by a flat 50%, and see where more cuts can go from there…

    Of course, what I really love is seeing all the crocidile tears being shed for our “brave troops fighting overseas” conveniently ignoring the fact that the two wars were put on a credit card and never really paid for with taxes. Ask the citizenry for taxation support for the troops and the tea-baggers go into revolt. They are revolting anyway.
