Republicans To Oppose Tax Cut For Working People.

Repugs are simply hypocrites. If they fight Obama on extending the tax cuts for the working people, while still remaining firm against tax increases on the wealthy, it will most certainly push the reelection of Obama in his favor.

STOP THE HYPOCRISY 2012.

And, how!
They want to stop Obama's payroll tax cut.
But,cut taxes to pre-depression era rates of 25%.
They want to starve Entitlements.
They were against those since day one. When did a rich person ever need them?
Sad thing is. Many conservatives who rely on them. Are voting Conservative.
Even for someone like Perry. Who wants to abolish Entitlements like Social Security and Medicaire.

Because those same conservatives rely on one source of news information, Faux News. They are blind to what's really happening to them and refuse to believe otherwise because they still hold on to what they consider to be true conservatism. They don't know that today's Conservative party is completely different and misguided by the extreme views of the insane.

The late 20th century is viewed by historians and tax professionals as a time of general tax reduction. Capital gains taxes are no exception. In 1978, Congress lowered the capital gains tax considerably -- from a maximum for near 40 percent to 28 percent. Cuts in the capital gains tax continued throughout the following decades, with further reductions approved by Congress in 1981 and 1997. Capital gains taxes were further decreased in 2003, though these decreases were designed to expire after 10 years. As of 2010, the maximum rate for most taxpayers is around 15 percent. Low-income taxpayers are not taxed on capital gains.

So, capital gains taxes have dropped. Marginal tax rates are almost at their lowest in history.
Only the late 1920s at 25%, and 1988-1990 at 28% were lower.
So, the wealthy have had it made for decades.
Sure the top 2-5% pay most of the country's taxes But, it's inspite of the fact that they are taxed less.
The REAL reason is that they make far MORE of the country's income. Something that hasn't happened since pre-depression years.

Several Republicans have scoffed at Buffet’s proposal, including the multimillionaire Mitt Romney. However, in an interview with Fox 4 News, multimillionaire Henry Bloch — co-founder and chairman emeritus of the tax preparation company H&R Block and a registered Republican — said that “the wealthy have a debt to this country. They can afford to pay it and they should.” He added that the Republican push to protect tax breaks for millionaires in order to promote job creation is “baloney“

Mitt Romney Looks To Expand $12 Million La Jolla, California Home.

I'm certain that he can still relate to the middle-class... Yeah...right.

I just love it how the regulars slink off to lick their wounds on fantastic news days.

Go back in the archives. When this NATO war against Qadaffi started I clearly predicted it wouldn't last more than a few months.

Against all the hypocrisy of the warmongers here who never met a war they didn't worship. AS LONG AS A GOP ASSHOLE PRESIDENT STARTED IT.

I agree with Rafemaster-76... the abject in-you-face hypocrisy of the right wing is what will kill them.

That and trying to cover it up with more endless bullshit.

Paul Ryan Tries To Create Tax Loopholes For His Biggest Donors

But a look at Ryan's record since he was elected to Congress in 1998 shows that he has tried to create an array of special loopholes for his top contributors, whose interests range from air fresheners to fraternity housing to beer.

Take S.C. Johnson & Son, one of Ryan's biggest donors. The multibillion-dollar company, which is based in Ryan's district and manufactures popular cleaning products like Pledge and Windex, donated $41,092 to the congressman between 1998 and 2012, according to OpenSecrets.org.

RAFENOTE:
GOP and their self-interests...

Ryan introduced two bills in May 2005 that would have granted the company special exemptions from tariffs. Specifically, his bills sought to suspend duties for imported components of "unique air freshener products … assembled by S.C. Johnson in the United States," Ryan said during floor remarks at the time. Neither bill advanced.

Bet that's all news to the conservatives. To listen to them speak. It's all Soros and GE donating to Obama. But, there are actually Corporations that donate to Conservatives?

Their reaction? See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.

Conservatives. You quit telling lies about us. We will stop telling truths about you!

"In referring to the Standard & Poor's decision to downgrade U.S. creditworthiness, they focus attention on the debt aspect but fail to note that the S&P's decision was based in part on the unwillingness of Congress to let the Bush-era tax cuts expire. Instead, Boehner and Cantor cling to the Republican mantra that raising taxes kills jobs and hurts the economy. Perhaps they should take a look at recent history.

Early in his first term, President Clinton raised taxes on the wealthiest Americans, and the increase was met by doomsday predictions from Republicans — similar to the right-wing clamor of today. Despite the dire claims, the economy prospered for nearly a decade.

By comparison, while the Bush-era tax cuts have been in place for a decade, private-sector job growth has been stagnant and the nation's debt has exploded. After 10 years of this failed approach, Boehner and Cantor are now recommending more of the same


There was also an article called,The Insanity of trying to run as a SANE Republican."

"GOP and their self-interests..." - rafemaster_76


The GOP is nothing but a big business whorehouse.

Slavish fascist courtesans for demanding suicidal fascist masters.

And even the most stupid of the American People are finally coming up out of their Fox "News" right wing Nazi radio slumber and awakening to that fact.

There will either be increased taxes on the rich, or beheadings.

And burnings. And lynchings. And pitchfork stabbings. And vehicle rundowns in the street of entire families.

The disparity between rich and poor and disappearance of the middle class in this country, and throughout the world, has already gone much to far too avoid it.

Now, it's just a matter of degree and how soon.

And who (or more properly, WHAT) takes charge in the aftermath.

Fear the morning after more than the night of restitution.

Why did Reid win the last election?
His first Republican opponent, Sue Lowden stated that the country should go back to the old days. When people could pay their doctor with a chicken.
then, his second opponent Sharon Angle stated that if people don't like their government,"Pack a gun!"

What she called, her "second amendment remedies"

No wonder Conservatives lose elections! LOL! HAHA!

"Gaddafi warned at the beginning of the US backed/inspired coup that if his regime was overthrown, Libya would descend into a failed Somali like state." - DJ


Oh, he did, did he? Wow. Guess he would know. NOT.

Can you be any more asinine? Reading too much Rense without your bullshit filter on as usual.

LIBYA. HAS. OIL.

SOMALIA. HAS. NONE.

Your inability to interpret the facts are on full display again, X-lax.

The fact is Libya has always been plagued with tribal tensions. Gaddafi, a strongman dictator, kept those tribes from warring on each other. Absent a strongman dictator, the tribes will surely wage war against each other thus plunge the entire country into anarchy.

What Obama and crew actually accomplished by overthrowing Gaddafi was to set up yet another situation where are permanent NATO/American military presence in needed. Our military presence is a necessity in order to keep inter tribal warring from so as to allow the oil to flow. Hence, this so-called victory in Libya is not really a victory for "democracy". No, it's for all practical purposes another victory for the military industrial complex. It provides them yet another war-front to capitalize on.

Still gloating about Obama's "victory'?

What Obama and crew actually accomplished by overthrowing Gaddafi was to set up yet another situation where a permanent NATO/American military presence is needed. Our military presence is necessity in order to keep inter tribal warring from ravaging the economy - that, of course, is a must in order to allow the oil to flow.

You see, this so-called victory in Libya is not really a victory at all for "democracy". No, it, for all practical purposes, is another victory for the military industrial complex. It provides them yet another war-front to capitalize on.

Tax cuts were never for creating jobs. Look at our history and you will find that some of the periods when unemployment was at it's lowest. Taxes were at their highest.

Oh, FU*CK yes:

THIS victory was achieved without a SINGLE US CONTRACTOR in Libya making bank.

THIS victory was achieved without a SINGLE GIRL BEING RAPED BY A US SERVICEMAN WHILE HIS FRIENDS KILLED HER FAMILIES AND NEIGHBORS.

THIS victory was achieved without torturing THOUSANDS of Libyans in a Libyan Abu Ghraib.

THIS victory was achieved without a single Libyan boy being raped up the as*s while his parents listened in the next cell.

THIS victory was achieved without DICK FUCKING CHENEY MAKING A SINGLE PENNY OFF IT.

THIS victory was achieved while Libyan infrastructure still has RUNNING WATER and 24/7 electricity. And will continue to do so.

MOST IMPORTANTLY, THIS VICTORY WAS ACHIEVED WITHOUT KILLING AT LEAST A MILLION LIBYAN WOMEN, CHILDREN, AND BABIES. AND DISPLACING SEVERAL MILLION MORE. THE GOP RIGHTWINGNUT PROFIT IS GOD WAY.

I could go on AND on, FOR THE NEXT TEN YEARS, but even YOU should get the picture.

There is a right way and a wrong way to do these things, since America insists on doing them and NEITHER of US is going to stop it from doing so.

THERE IS ALWAYS A LESSER EVIL.

And YOU CONTINUALLY CHOOSE THE WRONG SIDE.

And then ludicrously and impossibly try to justify it.

Not for a single second, my friend; not for a single second.

I gloat not at "Obama's" victory; I gloat at THE NUMBER OF MILLIONS OF LIVES SAVED AND THE NUMBER OF TRILLIONS OF CONTRACTOR MONIES NOT STOLEN FROM US TAXPAYERS.

I gloat at GOD'S VICTORY. The most HE can hope for in a world He's given free will:

THE TRIUMPH OF THE LESSER EVIL.
