    What a moron – Kelly can’t remember the old tax cut – which was due to expire 4 years ago.

    Old taxes we need to cut the deficit.

    Funny how the conservative cartoonists have now shown boulders representing debt, and boulders representing taxes. Which is it? They’re opposites, one is a result of eliminating the other.

    Considering that the idiot Senator from California (this time Barbara Boxer—but she is interchangeable with Feinstein) wants to levy a “Carbon Tax” on top of the Fuel Taxes we already pay to the Federal Government when we buy our gasoline, this will probably be one of the new taxes “in the mix” as the San Francisco “Chronicle” and its SFGate.com website have reported.

    We’ve been taxed enough already!

    The trouble with “old”, “new” or simply "more taxes is that little or none will end up to cut the deficit. Most of it will end up in increases for entitlements or pork.

    …and as a side “benefit” it will be a drag on a already struggling economy.

    Hey guys. Think about what John just said:

    “Hardworking taxpayers understand that they’ve got to balance their budgets, whether it’s every week or every month. They also believe that it’s time for Washington to balance its budget.

    “Over the last four years House Republicans have offered plans – our budget plans – we’ve done our budgets, but it’s been nearly four years since the Senate has done a budget. Most Americans believe you don’t do your job, you shouldn’t get paid, and that’s the basis for no budget, no pay. It’s time for the Senate to act.

    “Chairman Paul Ryan has worked hard with the Budget Committee to outline the kind of reforms that we would put in place to bring real fiscal responsibility here to Washington. And I think the American people understand that you can’t continue to spend money that you don’t have. It’s time for us to come to a plan that will in fact balance the budget over the next 10 years. It’s our commitment to the American people, and we hope the Senate will do their budget as they should have done over the last four years.”

    Sounds like a plan to me

    Gotta pay to play, Kelley, agreed? What say we get everybody who’s playin’ payin’ an equal percentage. Mitt Romney comes to mind. He pays 14% (when he pays at all); I’m payin’ north of 35. What’dya say, Kelley? Got room in your cartoons for a few numerical facts?

    I believe that all voters who choose to pay less in taxes should be relieved of the burden of the benefits earned through those payments. No more public highway system for them, nor the purchase of pharmaceuticals overseen by the Food and Drug Administration.

    Letting a temporary tax cut expire isn’t a new tax. The Republicans have gone along every time, too.

    I suppose you’d rather see Social Security disappear from lack of proper funding.

    Reinstating what was supposed to be a “temporary” tax break, is NOT an “increase” from traditional taxation, and indeed still represents a tremendous DECLINE from historic rates, as in the 1950’s. Apology to Australia, but the “TEA party” and Republican theme song should be “Whining Matilda”.

    @Uncle Joe

    Let me see…who was it that gave his peeps a tax break by reducing the amount of money a citizen had to contribute toward his retirement health care and so on? Oh yeah, that’s right, Obama.

    The "payroll tax reduction by 2%.

    And who got the surprise in their first year checks? That’s right you did. Why? Cause it’s a tax on the middle class.

    But yeah, it never should have been done.
