Obama: more tax revenue
needed to address U.S. deficit -CBS

WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama said on Sunday more tax revenue would be needed in the coming years to reduce the U.S. deficit but raising tax rates was not a key issue. "I don´t think the issue right now is raising rates," Obama said in an interview on CBS. "There is no doubt we need additional revenue, coupled with smart spending reductions in order to bring down our deficit. And we can do it in a gradual way so that it doesn´t have a huge impact," he said. At the beginning of the year Obama pushed through legislation

Like a parasite, he always wants more, more, more.

It is now obvious that dramatic increase in Medicaid spending driven by 0bamacare is the key culprit. Zippy and the ´Rats - aided by the sycophantic MSM will go to any extent to prevent the public dialogue on this issue to come to this point.

There is a way to get more "revenue" Skippy. Get the federal government´s foot off the neck of the economic producers so that they might expand the economy thereby creating more jobs, read taxpayers, who will enrich the treasury as a consequence. It worked in the 80s when tax revenues doubled. Disabuse yourself of the cockeyed notion that the economy is some sort of zero sum game and let the rising tide lift all boats, to coin a phrase.

Your bottom up, middle out approach is failing miserably.

In other words...

More money needs to be taken from taxpayers for the government to spend...aka redistribution.

In the meantime, the Obama Administration is going to do all it can to punish the productive and strangle the economy with regulations.

There isn´t enough money on Earth to satisfy our federal government.

If Washington gets more it will spend more. For years they have not fixed any deficit problems, entitlement problems, or passed a budget.

Nearly every quasi-federal entity is also losing money in huge amounts. Post Office, student loans, etc. The loan guarantees are immense.

Off the books liabilities, such as pensions, are ignored. They are not considered in the deficit or debt.

Even with a reform it would take two years just to install honest accounting.

Uhhh, no.

Just cut spending.

How? Well, start by limiting the Federal Gov´t to its Constitutionally-authorized activities.

#22: As an insightful poster noted some time back, we effectively have a VAT in the corporate income tax. Quite a good point. Quite true as a practical matter.

Poor old Washington has a really bad case of worms. He eats like a pig always hungry for more, more ,more yet he´s getting so thin you can count his ribs. He needs to be wormed or we will have to put him down. It´s depressing to hear the constant whining to ´feed me more´. He has already eaten everything in sight except Grandfathers Social security check. Sadly we may have to take him out back and shoot him.

Chef says preparing healthy Passover
seder to suit Michelle Obama

Chef Vered Guttman braved the challenge of preparing a White House Passover seder in line with Michelle Obama´s healthy eating guidelines and lived to tell her story. "The traditional seder fare is hardly fresh or healthy," Guttman wrote in a post-dinner review about incorporating vegetable sides to "offset some of the Jewish carbs" like gefilte fish and matzo ball soup. And her hard work to keep it healthy paid off, as both the President and First Lady praised her quinoa-kale salad and even inquired after the recipe. Guttman, a D.C. based caterer, worked with White House executive chef Cris Comerford

A new poll shows former secretary of state Hillary Clinton´s (D) numbers hitting their lowest point in six years. Meanwhile, it finds that the Republican Party is experiencing something of a renaissance. The Fox News poll, from Democratic pollster Anderson Robbins Research and GOP pollster Shaw & Company, shows Clinton´s favorable rating dropping to 49 percent, compared to 45 percent unfavorable. The last time her numbers were in that ballpark was during the 2008 Democratic presidential primary race. After she ended her campaign, her favorable/unfavorable split was 47/46. Other polls have shown Clinton´s numbers --

DENVER | Colorado Democrats abandoned their own divisive abortion proposal Wednesday, axing the bill after one lawmaker expressed indecision and it became clear they might not have the votes to pass it in a chamber where every vote matters. Democrats used a legislative maneuver to shelve a bill that would have banned any state regulation of reproductive decisions such as abortion and contraception. It had been scheduled for a vote Wednesday evening in the Senate, where the party holds a slim one-seat majority. The move came after Sen. John Kefalas, D-Fort Collins, said he wasn’t sure if the measure was

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'

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. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

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

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer.

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

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."

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
