Mark Levin rips Bill Kristol
over tax hikes: ´Stop talking

The Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:Donttaxmebro, 11/20/2012 10:24:31 AM

Radio host Mark Levin disagreed Monday with Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol on tax hikes, and said that he is aiding “Obama’s attack on capitalism and successful people.” As a panelist on “Fox News Sunday,” Kristol has argued that the Republican Party should be willing to raise taxes and that the tea party wouldn’t care if “a few millionaires pay a couple percent more in taxes.” But Levin — a prominent figure within the tea party movement — ripped Kristol’s analysis. “Among the others who I think it’s time just to go someplace and talk among yourselves

Comments:
There´s a war breaking out and Bill Kristol is prattling on about tax policy. It´s like the world is upside-down.

Standing ovation for Mr. Levin. Almost 40% of all income taxes are paid by the "wealthy" already and where has that gotten us?

it is not about the taxes, it is about the spending. We would not have pressure to raise taxes if we could control our spending.

Let the Dimms own the economy, but we must put a line in the sand regarding making our children and grandchildren pay our debts.

As individuals, you legally cannot pass on your personnal debt to your heirs, but our government does this by deficit spending.

The Repugs and the Dimms needs to be tossed on the ash heep of history. They brought us this $16 trillion in debt, cultural rot, and a political system that does not produce leaders with honor and integrity..

Yo, Kristol and your running-dog RINO collaborationists:
One person paying a different rate than another by virtue of having higher income is the basic tenet of Marxism, and wrong.

It is never right, and is at the root of most of our problems,along with Racism.

Marxism, Racism, Murder, Voter Fraud and Homos.
You go for that, you a Democrat.

Bill Kristol no longer deserves my attention. Thank you Mark Levin. And yes, the problem is on the "outgo" side, not the "income."

Kristol is the classic example of a "neoconservative". Many are reformed dems/leftists who cannot make a clean break with "the call of the wild".

Ordinarily I would agree but have come to the conclusion: The Republicans should either concentrate on educating the public on why the rich should not be taxed - they obviously have no clue - or not come out against it because it makes no sense to the majority of people and remains merely an albatross around our necks to help sink us every time.

Taxes are just a misdirection. The real game in town is inflation of the money supply which in turn is a tax on all Americans.

I like Levin. If I fess up with the money to renew my satellite radio next month, he will be why.
So many Republicans have slipped farther to the left than even Democrats were 30 years ago. I guess having political influence or power is more important to them than having beliefs.
I was skeptical about quitting the party last summer, but it appears it was the right move.

Kristol´s bottom line is war. He is a true war monger. You can tell what really matters to people by what they are willing to compromise on or let go entirely. Kristol never stops advocating for war even as he is ok with taxing only the rich.

My view is if it comes to it - let ALL the Bush tax cuts expire. Shared sacrifice is called for - not some kind of parody.

Part of me wants to say, go ahead and raise taxes on the folks earning more than a million a year.... ´cause most of those Hollywood types and crony capitalists who sucked at the Obama trough (I´m kinda thinking like Boss Immelt, the GE crony who was Obama´s Jobs Czar, moving his jobs to China) voted for Dear Leader(US). Let those suckers pay (which, I´ll admit won´t cover Obama´s spending for a morning before lunch).

And if you´re a Republican making over a million a year, why haven´t you moved most of your income producing assets to tax-free municipal bonds anyway?

Mark Levin has more brains in his little finger than the entire GOP establishment. Kristol has acted like a whipped puppy on FOX since the election. WHO would want to join a party with people who talk and act like such losers???

The problem with Levin´s position is that it´s a lose-lose for the GOP. They will get no electoral benefit from taking a principled stand on behalf of overtaxed millionaires. Of course, Obama´s tax on the rich is pointless and counterproductive. Even Obama knows it won´t amount to squat in terms of revenue. Even some Dems are finally admitting that they´d be fine with us going over the fiscal cliff and for everyone´s taxes to go up. It might tank the economy, but if they cared about that, they wouldn´t be Democrats. All they care about is getting more money to spend to solidify their political power.

Letting all the rates rise will result in a windfall to the government and a massive amount of anger from the middle class, which they can then direct against those heartless, plutocratic Republicans, who let everyone´s rates go up just because they wanted to protect the rich. Obama gets everything he wants, plus he gets to pin all the negative fallout on the GOP, who won´t win another election for a generation. Levin´s stance is a classic case of someone concentrating so hard on winning the battle that he loses the war.

I heard Kristol´s comments, and they seemed reasonable to me. One of his points was that having lost the political debate, Republicans should try to limit the damage by restricting tax increases to very high income earners, not the $250,000 earners that the Democrats target. This is not completely unlike what Romney was proposing, albeit it´s done with rates rather than deductions. It has the virtue of being doable.

Let´s face it, the argument against tax increases on millionaires is a very tough sell. Our side tried and failed to win this argument.

Letting ALL the Bush tax cuts expire will indeed result in a *windfall* to he government - the federal government. And who controls the purse strings? Not Obama. Not Reid. The GOP House. No money can be spent without a bill originating in the House. The debt can be paid down and our bills paid. Imagine that :-)

The idea that the GOP is too stupid to win a national argument with Obama and the democrats over why everyone´s taxes went up is truly a sad admission that you do NOT believe in the republicans. If the republicans cannot hold strong or even advocate successfully for their position - why even have them?

Kristol on the obama payroll. Taxing the ´rich´ is useless, even if you confiscate all assets of the rich it would add up to 5% of what the gov spends each year.

In an interview posted on the YouTube page owned by the filmmakers of last September’s documentary “The Muslims Are Coming” on Monday, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow targeted conservative Ann Coulter and radio host and so-called evangelist Bryan Fischer. Maddow was critical of Fischer and likened him to Coulter, author of "Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican," who Maddow insisted wasn’t to be taken seriously as a political player or a pundit, but instead just a comedian. “[A]nn Coulter was revealed not as a political player or even as a pundit, but essentially as a comedian,” Maddow explained.

On her Thursday broadcast, “The Kelly File” host Megyn Kelly brought on Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer to sound off on the latest excerpt of President Barack Obama’s interview with the New Yorker magazine’s David Remnick. In that excerpt, Obama blamed Fox News and conservative talker Rush Limbaugh for the gridlock in Washington, D.C. Krauthammer noted Obama has “the commanding heights of the culture” in his corner and said it was unbecoming of the leader of the free world to complain on those grounds. “At least he is not blaming it on climate change or George W.

On Thursday, semi-retired radio talker Neal Boortz predicted the republican party will not win control of the U.S. Senate in the 2014 midterm elections, despite all the pitfalls the democrats and president Barack Obama are facing, particularly with regards to ObamaCare. The reason, Boortz said, would be the GOP’s tendency to run on issues related to social conservatism. Boortz explained the importance to the republic for a GOP win next year while guest hosting Sean Hannity’s Thursday radio show: this whole thing about Phil Robertson and what have you – it speaks a lot to what we have

On Tuesday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor,” Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer insisted the divide within the Republican Party has been exaggerated, adding that Republicans disagree over strategy but not ideology. “[I] think this whole thing is as you say very much blown up by the liberal media because it’s a great dramatic story,” Krauthammer said. “But here’s the fundamental contradiction. I think this analysis is wrong. It’s fundamentally wrong for this reason: The difference between what are being called the hard right and the moderates, the RINOs and the true believers, is really one

During the online-only portion of Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” on Wednesday night, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer laid out his theory on what Obamacare’s real intended purpose is: an instrument to redistribute wealth. Krauthammer made that claim in his column last week, but he explained how it works in practice to host Bret Baier and co-panelists former New Jersey Superior Court Judge Andrew Napolitano and The Hill associate editor A.B. Stoddard. That panel was presented with a viewer who asked what would happen if an individual couldn’t pay an insurance provider in the event of some

On Tuesday’s broadcast of Hugh Hewitt’s radio show, MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough hammered President Barack Obama for what he called lies during the sales job for his 2010 health care law. Scarborough was asked by Hewitt if he had any idea how many people would ultimately lose their health care coverage because of that law. Scarborough replied by saying many more Americans would be impacted by that law than what then-President George W. Bush had said in his 2003 state of the union speech regarding Iraq trying to procure yellow cake uranium from Niger.

STEWART: Thirty years — do you ever look back on some of these writings and think, ‘What was I thinking?’ KRAUTHAMMER: It’s worse than that.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.
