Howard Dean to Middle Class: Taxes
Go Up or Programs Get Cut (Video)

Rasmussen Reports, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:bifgroovey, 2/18/2013 5:25:47 PM

Former Chairman of the Democratic National Committee Howard Dean, speaking with Scott Rasmussen on What America Thinks, said that “somebody has to tell the middle class that either your taxes are going to go up or your programs are going to get cut or else we´re going to go into financial oblivion, and nobody really wants to tell them that.” (Snip) Dean also said: "Inside Washington, people lose all their perspective and they end up getting sucked into this Washington culture which is pretty much unlike anything else in the country."

Comments:
Dear Howard - My taxes did go up. Working father of four now has $180 less a month due to increase in social security tax. Obama already increased everyones taxes (not to mention the price of gas).

Please post to word limit. LCom Staff.

My personal family economy is in a depression. I have stopped spending and am saving as much as possible.

Cut the programs.
It is the only way to balance the budget.
There really isn´t any choice when you do the math. If taxes were raised enough to balance the budget then average Americans would not have enough money left to buy food.

But..but...but...the President said that he would not raise taxes on anyone making less than $250,000, or was it $200,000. Not one dime in new taxes, I say.

I´m going to be irreverent here and call him a LIAR.

Fine, cut taxes and we get to choose which ´programs´ and departments get eliminated - not just ´cut´, but dismantled and not absorbed into another federal department.

Dean is right. So is OP.

Speaking of Cuts is a distraction. Spending will get reduced when Washington stops programs and eliminates agencies. They have to learn that some things need not be done at all.

Taxes have already gone up but no programs ended, In fact the biggest peacetime program in history, ACA, is just heginning.

It is also time to tell the 49% that do not pay any taxes it´s time to fork a bit over. You pay nothing, get back thousands on unearned tax credits and you keep wanting more. You are the problem.

The Republican have been saying that for 4 years. They want to cut spending though, not raise taxes. Where there are 3 government programs doing the same thing, they want to cut 2 of them. When the federal government is capitalizing and subsidizing energy forms that can´t compete on a level playing field, the GOP wants to stop. The GOP want to meet the the air and water standards that were in effect in 2008, not dream up new one that will shutter efficient US facilities while the Chinese crank out pollution at an astounding rate.

Democrats do not understand that raising taxes retards growth in the economy. They seem to think it has no effect, that is, if they consider it at all. Ultimately, raising taxes hurts the very people they want to help.

(Yawn) Marxist druids always like to play the "Takers" against the "Makers".

If you launch enough lifeboats, eventually no one knows how to swim.

I think Dean, who quit his church over their refusal to fund a green bike path, should reflect upon why he isn´t relevent anymore.

In the near future they´ll be banging on our doors wanting to inspect our homes for weapons. I can live without their "help". And teachers? Don´t even get me started. Cut away Howie!!!!

New cable network Al Jazeera America introduced itself to viewers on Tuesday with reports on political strife in Egypt and the impact of climate change on U.S. cities, shortly after a major pay TV distributor declined to carry the channel. The decision by AT&T's U-verse pay-TV service stemmed from a contract dispute over terms to carry the new network, AT&T spokesman Mark Siegel said. Al Jazeera responded by suing AT&T for breach of contract in Delaware Chancery Court. Globally, Al Jazeera is seen in more than 260 million homes in 130 countries. But the new U.S. channel funded by the emir of

Johnny Manziel will return to a football field this evening when he and his Texas A&M teammates hold their first practice hours after an ESPN report that could threaten the Heisman Trophy winner’s eligibility. In the latest and by far most serious report concerning the off-the-field activities of Johnny Football, the NCAA is investigating whether Manziel received money for autographing hundreds of photos, footballs, helmets and other memorabilia in January.

Rochester, N.Y. -- She says she had no warning that someone was going to search her car after she left to catch her flight. So the woman contacted News10NBC. We found out it happened to her because she valet parked her car. Those are the only cars that get inspected. So if security feels it is necessary to search some cars in the name of safety, why not search all of them? Laurie Iacuzza walked to her waiting car at the Greater Rochester International Airport after returning from a trip and that's when she found it -- a notice saying her car was inspected after she left for her flight. She said, “I was furious. They never mentioned it to me when I booked the valet or when I picked up the car or when I dropped it off.”

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.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
