Top Dem calls for tax increase
on 99 percent of Americans

Washington Examiner, by Joel Gehrke

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/21/2013 1:23:04 PM

House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Md., called for an income tax increase on the 99 percent of Americans whose rates did not go up under the fiscal cliff deal, a hike that he proposed alongside entitlement reforms as part of a “balanced” plan to resolve the country’s fiscal crisis. “Closing loopholes is like getting rid of fraud, waste, and abuse — it sounds nice, until you’ve got to deal with it politically,” Hoyer said on MSNBC. “I was for the Clinton rates. I’m for the Clinton rates, today. Now, I wouldn’t phase in the Clinton rates

Does 0bama know this? He´s so vigilant about protecting the middle class. Heavy s/o And yet these filthy jerks will not even consider cutting spending. It´s beyond frustrating.

More taxes would only be spent to advance socialism!

Why? Just because you can? What is your reason for raising rates? Is it to raise revenue? If so, it won´t do that. Is it because government is such a model of efficiency with the revenue it currently gets? Government is at least 50% wasteful so all you need to do is prioritize your spending--but "you´ve got to deal with it politically". Government needs more money, but we, the taxpayers, must do with less. This is leadership?

But we´ve already been hit with increases. Everything this administration does causes everything we have to buy and pay for to go up in price. Fuel, groceries, every utility, including water and sewer. And yet - they can´t seem to stop throwing my money away hand over fist to countries that hate us, welfare louts who refuse to help themselves, union paybacks, vote buying, money laundering and of course various temptations to those who are not even supposed to be in this country. They want to increase my taxes - I want to begin a tax revolution. I´m tired of being taken advantage of, and there doesn´t appear to be any opposition to this insanity in congress. Where are the dummies I voted for?

Hey, Steny, let´s go back to Clinton era spending levels before we discuss Clinton era tax rates. I guess you do not understand that they go hand-in-hand.

SPENDING is out of control, yet you and Pelosi created yet ANOTHER entitlement program when America cannot afford the entitlement programs we already had.

Democrats are brain dead.

Of course the Dems want a tax increase on each and every one of us; the Dems just can´t stop spending; the money has to come from somewhere, and they sure are not for any cuts whatsoever. Tax, spend, tax, spend, tax, spend; it is the democrat´s way.

Say it like it is you lying S.O.B., wanting to tax the 52% that pay taxes with a 99% tax increase...how about taxing the 48% of non-paying non-taxed with 100% of taxes???

Steny, You´re going to be as popular as a skunk on a submarine. Your leaders decided to not take that approach even though it was the default if no one acted. Now the default is to only increase government by 2% instead of the baseline increase of 8%. And you want to go back and increase everyone´s taxes?

What the shrinks call "projection."

Steny says waste. farud and abuse are at the root of our problems. Ask an average citizen to describe DC politiciians and at the top of the list will be waste, fraud and abuse.

If we were able to implement elimination of waste, fraud and abuse, DC would shrink to population levels of the 18th century.

Obama administration’s ‘Culture of
intimidation’ seen in Nevada ranch standoff
Washington Times, by Valerie Richardson    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 10:09:44 PM     Post Reply
Sending scores of armed agents along with helicopters and dogs to confront an elderly Nevada rancher over grazing fees may seem like overkill, but critics say it’s not inconsistent with the federal government’s recent approach to environmental enforcement. The simmering truce between the Bundys and the Bureau of Land Management comes after high-profile raids last year by armed federal agents on small-time gold miners in tiny Chicken, Alaska, and guitar makers at the Gibson Guitar facilities in Tennessee. That doesn’t include more subtle threats, such as recent efforts by the Obama administration to raise grazing fees or pressure

Congressman: Obama ´Has Been Forced
to Deport a Huge Number of Americans´

Rep. Joe Garcia (D-Fla.) is among the Democrats pressing Congress to take up immigration reform. On Tuesday, he told a conference call that deportations are breaking families apart and leaving children in foster care. "So the human toll has been horrific. This president, by implementation of existing law, has been forced to deport a huge number of Americans." Although Garcia may consider the deportees to be "Americans," legally they are not. But they might become citizens if Garcia and other immigration advocates get their way. Democrats are urging Republicans to sign their discharge petition, which would force a House vote on

Oversight member on Lois Lerner
coordination with DOJ: ‘Now I see

Key members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform expressed outrage at revelations made in newly released emails showing ex-IRS official Lois Lerner coordinating with the Department of Justice on prosecuting nonprofit groups. One committee member said the emails prove why the IRS is “scared to give up the rest of Lois Lerner’s emails.” IRS commissioner John Koskinen was recently threatened with contempt for stonewalling the committee’s investigation. Koskinen claimed in a hearing that it could take years to provide the documents requested by Oversight. “The release of new documents

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! 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

So I´m outside yesterday leaving work, and a woman stops me to say how much she loves me. I get this all the time. We chat a bit and she goes on to tell me how much she appreciates my covering what the other guys won´t. Then she said something that really stuck with me. "Neil, thank god you´re not cool." I told her, "is it that obvious?" She laughed. I laughed. But she got me thinking. It happens sometimes. I´m not cool. But I´m ok with that. Good thing, because I never was cool. But just admitting that to the mainstream media is very un-cool. Because the mainstream media

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

Thank God for Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration J. Russell George. His investigation of what turned out to be the IRS abuse scandal may well have saved the Constitution and the nation. For his fair and impartial investigation into the Internal Revenue Service’s abuse of Americans who dissent from President Obama’s agenda, Democrats have called for an investigation of him. George should not be investigated, but perhaps the Democrats who want him investigated — Reps. Gerry Connolly (D-VA) and Matt Cartwright (D-PA) — should be. Their call for an investigation of the investigator might constitute interference with the ongoing investigation

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

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

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
