Pelosi, Van Hollen, Durbin:
Americans Still Not Taxed Enough

Cybercast News Service, by Susan Jones

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/7/2013 11:35:35 AM

Are Democrats done raising taxes on the American people? "No," says House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.). "We can raise more revenue," says Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.). And Sen. Dick Durban (D-Ill.) says "there are still deductions, credits, special treatments under the tax code which ought to be looked at very carefully." The three Democrats took similar questions about additional tax hikes on different Sunday talk shows. Interviewed Friday by Bob Schieffer, host of CBS´s "Face the Nation," Pelosi was asked if the "revenue side" of the fiscal cliff is finished. Revenue means higher taxes to Democrats.

Comments:
I truly don´t know how we are going to survive the next four years when the Democrats get done with us. There are just no words to sufficiently describe the outrage that they won´t even consider spending as the cause of our disastrous economic problems. It´s just breathtaking.

Just once, I wish one of these so-called reporters would ask each of these cretins: just how much are your worth, what percentage of your income do you pay and how much did you give to charity? Of course with Pelosi, her wealth derides not from income but from investments and thus, a lower tax rate.

When they start talking about the child tax credit I´ll begin to listen. I have not heard a single word from any of them about the fraudulent claims for children living in other countries as documented by an Indianapolis TV station last year.

Idiots think they are bending over big business, but instead are sticking it to the average tax-payer. Want to save some money, start with the Tax Credits, allow these credits to lower your tax rate to ZERO, not give you a refund when you didn’t even paid taxes…CRAZY!

1. Why should we listen to people who voted to exempt themselves from the criminal penalties for insider trading that would have any of us in jail?
2. Where´s the list of their reported net worth, year by year, since elected to Congress?
3. How much above the legally-required tax rates have these "not taxed enough, the rich ´can afford it´" [which BTW is NOT the test for tax rates] pre-deleteds paid themselves? What? Not such great "tax-patriots" after all? Really?

Do the math. In order to pay for all their spending, the taxes on the typical American worker needs to be 20k per year higher. Which for most workers would mean they couldn´t afford to go to work.

The Dems won´t stop until we are all back living in mill villages and buying everything at the company store.

This is exactly why so many of us begged the Republicans not to give an inch on this matter.

Demon-RATS see any sign of compromise as a sign of weakness. They know the Republicans surrendered like the French army on this, and so they are going to go for the jugular now.

Make a stand now against this insanity, or just rename the Republican Party the ´´French Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey Party´´.

It should not be surprising that liberal Democrats say that they want to raise more taxes, as it is central to liberal Democrat and progressive political philosophy that more and more money must be thrown into social welfare programs, to expand their base of voters from the more and more people who they want to become dependent upon those social welfare programs. Once more then half of the voting population is dependent upon those social welfare programs the liberal Democrats will continue to win every future elections, that is until the money runs out.

I agree, Nancy, there are a lot of tax deductions that should be eliminated.

How about eliminating the tax deduction for union dues? And the tax-exempt status of unions?

How about eliminating the deduction for state and local taxes? Dem voters in high tax states like NY, NJ, MA, CA and IL will love you for that one! Right now, taxpayers in low/no state tax states are subsidizing the high tax states

This from the people that inserted $76 Billion of "Tax Extenders" into the fiscal Cliff Bill three minutes before the vote. I would append the repeal of those "Tax Extenders" to the Sandy Relief Bill and deliver that Bill back to the Senate to Senator Durbin with a copy of this article.

The GOP has the majority in the House yet as the minority, the democrats seem to control the agenda.

Where is the leadership in the House, Mr. Boehner? Why can`t you publicly excoriate and vilify Pelosi and her Gang of Idiots??

Just tax and regulate everybody else.

This should be no surprise. The only surprise is that McConnell and Boehner are stupid enough to believe that the tax issues have been "settled". The Dems said weeks (months?) ago that the "cliff" debate would only be an opening salvo.

The GOP "party of the rich" and "party of stupid" tags are verified once again. (The Democrat "party of evil" tag is a given.)

I guess the RNC could do something like remind voters that everyone taxing them, just voted themselves a pay raise. It would be good to remind the average viewer how much these corrupt ´lawmakers´ get in salary AND special benefits.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

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'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. 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. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.
