Bill Kristol Caves on Higher Taxes
Breitbart Big Government, by Joel B. Pollak

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/11/2012 7:52:51 PM

“I think Republicans will have to give in much more than they think. He won re-election... "Elections have consequences... The leadership in the Republican Party and the leadership in the conservative movement has to pull back, let people float new ideas. Let’s have a serious debate. Don’t scream and yell when one person says, ´You know what? It won’t kill the country if we raise taxes a little bit on millionaires.´ It really won’t, I don’t think. I don’t really understand why Republicans don’t take Obama’s offer to freeze taxes for everyone below $250,000.

I Swear these people just dont remember what happens when we raise taxes. They never really quit spending. Only real way to force them to have a budget is to refuse to raise the debt limit and not let them borrow anymore money. Or give them a 3month extension with a 75billion debt ceiling increase. 4 x 75 is 300billion in one year. That would be a respectable deficit for the first year of President Obama´s 2nd term. So what if the president threatens to drive us all over the cliff. If we dont agree to blow brains out, he will spend a Trillion or more than we take in forever. We can go over the cliff sooner or later. Sooner means we will owe less money to the Chicoms.

Has Kristol ever run a business?

Every tax increase has consequences. When the cost of Obamacare is included, the result is reduced hours & layoffs for worker, reduced bottom line and no investment funds available.

Result will be businesses shrinking and closing.

This is when I am so glad that what these joker pundits have to say makes so little difference - to me and to a fair amount of the country who don´t even have a clue as to who they are.

Kristol´s as full of himself as Obie is.

If you raise taxes say 300 billion, then they will raise spending 600 billion and say its and emergency. The only way you would ever agree to a tax increase of any kind is if we had at least a full year of huge spending cuts that really took place. It´s like amnesty. No consideration of any such thing until the border is totally shut down.

Well, Obama´s ploy may succeed, but since you ask, Mr. Kristol, the issue is that the Dems cannot win without splitting the party, and we have to assume they are trying, which provides some insight into the WH insistence that GOP House members break ironclad promises made to the electorate. Then they can be painted as weak, and a third party can lift off and split the GOP, allowing the Dems to take the House in two years. Do Not Disappoint the Base. Stop It. It is a LOSING idea.

Tax the richer people in our country to pay down the deficit???!!! Some economists believe that MAY help in the short term—but will have virtually no effect in the long term. Why is that? It would seem to be a simple mathematical solution?

I believe it is legalized stealing. Of course we are to pay our taxes and support our leaders, but when the policies and programs violate God’s expressed will, we should recognize the programs for what they are—a violation of the 8th Commandment – “You shall not steal.”

So what’s wrong with taking more money from some fat-cat people? They’ve got plenty-----they’ll never miss it. But we ought not to violate our conscience, which should be dictated by Spiritual guidance and biblical principles.

Listen ….. voting for a tax rate on others that we do not vote for ourselves is the same as stealing from our neighbor. It violates God’s law. Asking the state to stick its hands in another’s pockets for our benefit…….. is no better than doing it ourselves.

The surrender continues at an accelerated pace. Where is it written the loyal opposition has to join in the collective suicide? They own it. It´s happening at a furious pace of regulations and fiats. This was not the normal ebb and flow of politics. Our nation is in the hands of fascists and statists. They do not negotiate. They dictate. Does any rational being think that after a lifetime of Marxist ideaology Obama will suddenly morph into some Mt. Rushmore saint? He wouldn´t lower himself to share a mountain with those he hates. This won´t take long.

Laura Ingraham looked as though she wanted to give Kristol a hearty thrashing. By his words, we know this is the course the RINOs will take. There is nothing left to admire or respect about the current Republican Party. Mitt Romney may not have been perfect in some eyes but I see now the GOP establishment did not deserve him.

Well, maybe not such a bad idea after all. Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit writes about repealing the "Hollywood Tax Cuts". Use Alinsky´s "Rules for Radicals" against them -- make the Dems live up to their own rhetoric. Tax Obama´s "millionaires and billionaires" like Bill Maher, Jon Stewart, John F´ng Kerry, Nancy Pelosi -- target them and see how they will dodge the bullet. Kerry´s income is from tax-free municipal bonds -- make them tax free up to $10M. See what happens -- the Democrats are the wealthy party, not the Republicans.

Kristol actually said " Don’t scream and yell when
one person says, ‘You know what?
It won’t kill the country if we raise taxes a
little bit on millionaires. "
So, what does the right do ?
They scream and yell at Kristol.
I´m with him.
Why should Republicans continue to lose elections
defending millionaires who live in blue counties and vote Democrat ?
Let´s call Obama´s bluff and raise taxes " a little bit " on millionaires and see what happens.
Plus, close tax loopholes and give those earning
under a million a tax break.
I bet the biggest howls will be from Obama´s Hollywood, NBA and rapper buddies.

How dare Mr. Bill suggest - if he has- that the hiring class should pay higher taxes when 47% of the population pay no income taxes at all?

How about requiring everyone in the country to pay at least $100.00 a yearin income tax and listen to the screams? That would cut down somewhat on the grease spots in the parking lots of video rental stores.

Kristol needs to be reminded that Boehner and more than 218 republicans won seats in the House of Representatives on election day too.

If the GOP feels the need to cave on taxes then how about only raising them for 2 years - to expire one week before the 2014 election. We should have a good idea by then whether these cretins wasted the money or spent it wisely.

Bill Kristol, ´´Caves?´´ ...OK now to raise taxes?

When will unprincipled Rinos EVER stop joining the socialist dems´ urge to reward failure by punishing success? Hard work and personal merit play vital roles to our personal freedom and thus to the USA. The Founders knew this principle, as has every generation of Americans since the country´s founding.

Are the aging but still vocal radicalized activist ´60s & ´70s lefty/lib/statist pols, their perverted lsm/media and unionized academia simply frittering away the next generations´ liberty, strangling the life out of freedom and any hopes of personal achievement & success in the USA? Is the new mantra now to be, ´Don´t be the best that YOU can be?!!´ ...Take a number & wait, ´´unit?´´

We know what, ´´success,´´ has meant and still means in the lives & ´Pursuit of Happiness,´ of most Americans and to this country, the beacon of Liberty on the planet, but now the actual meaning of, ´´success,´´ to the dems & Rinos will surface for all to see through the radical policies they legislate AND regulate next.
...Socialism FAILS every time it is tried! The proof is in the pudding.

#12, First of all, Kristol does NOT represent the Republican party. Second, there is a HUGE difference between the parties...the party PRINCIPLES. Politicians in office do not necessarily represent the party either. We just have to stop letting our candidates be chosen for us. And we need to stop voting in the same corrupt, career politicians.

That said, Kristol is an idiot. Why $250K? Such an arbitrary cut off that takes nothing into account. What if it is a chapter S? What if the family is big and has lots of expenses? What if the people live in expensive states like CA, NY, etc.? I am getting sick. I got a raise after 5 years finally and because of taxes, I only see half of it and I certainly don´t make anywhere near $250K!! Any tax increases will affect us lower earners...believe me. It won´t stop at $250k. We already know that.

In reaction to a $3 million ad buy in Colorado, North Carolina, Arkansas, Michigan and Louisiana by Senate Majority PAC, a spokesman for Koch Industries accused the group of “negative cynical, divisive, and dishonest attacks” against Charles and David Koch.The big spending by the Democratic group “is the latest round in a series of attacks and attempts to silence private citizens who dare to disagree with the policies of the Majority Leader and the current administration,”

A week before a self-imposed deadline for a review of National Security Agency programs, President Barack Obama sought Friday to assure leading Internet and tech executives that his administration is committed to protecting people´s privacy. CEOs from Facebook, Google, Netflix and others spent more than two hours with Obama in the Oval Office discussing their concerns about NSA spying programs, which have drawn outrage from tech companies whose data have been scooped up by the government. Joining Obama and the CEOs were Obama´s commerce secretary, homeland security adviser, and counselor John Podesta, whom Obama has tasked with leading a review

WASHINGTON— Mayor Vincent Gray often calls the District of Columbia "the envy of the nation" for its robust economy and fast-growing population, but some say the local government he leads — plagued by corruption, pay-to-play politics and disengaged voters — is a stain on the city´s progress. The latest bruise to the city´s reputation involves Gray, who is under federal investigation. Prosecutors say he knew about a $668,000 campaign slush fund that helped him get elected in 2010, and while Gray has not been charged, five people involved with his campaign have been convicted. Separately, three former members of the

BEIJING – The arrival in China of President Obama’s daughters, 15-year-old Malia and 12-year-old Sasha, for a weeklong trip with their mother, prompts the question: What about President Xi Jinping’s daughter? Xi’s daughter, Xi Mingze, never appears in public. The 21-year-old is believed to be a student at Harvard University, enrolled under a pseudonym. That has never been mentioned in the Chinese press and searches of her name on the Chinese Internet are blocked. The most recent photo of her available was from when she was about 10.

U.S. Judge Strikes Down Michigan´s

Michigan´s ban on gay marriage is unconstitutional, a federal judge said Friday, striking down a law that was widely embraced by voters a decade ago in the latest in a series of similar decisions across the country. But unlike cases in other states, U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman did not suspend his decision while the Michigan attorney general pursues an appeal. That means clerks could start issuing licenses Monday unless a higher court intervenes. Friedman released his 31-page ruling exactly two weeks after a rare trial that mostly focused on the impact of same-sex parenting on children. The challenge was

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — A tone-deaf inquiry into an Asian-American’s ethnic origin. Cringe-inducing praise for how articulate a black student is. An unwanted conversation about a Latino’s ability to speak English without an accent. This is not exactly the language of traditional racism, but in an avalanche of blogs, student discourse, campus theater and academic papers, they all reflect the murky terrain of the social justice word du jour — microaggressions — used to describe the subtle ways that racial, ethnic, gender and other stereotypes can play out painfully in an increasingly diverse culture.

If the Cold War is back, Marco Rubio wants to be Ronald Reagan. The GOP Florida senator has been laying out his case for a muscular, more interventionist foreign policy for weeks, sounding the alarm about Russia’s incursion into Crimea and criticizing President Obama for his handling of the crisis. He´s positioned himself as a foreign policy hawk who might stand out from a GOP field that’s increasingly dominated by libertarians like Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) — whose views risk looking overly isolationist amid the Russia crisis. Russia’s annexation of Crimea has given Rubio, a Senate Foreign Relations Committee member

U.S. consumers eligible for Obamacare health plans could see double-digit price hikes next year in states that fail to draw large numbers of enrollees for 2014, including some states that have been hostile to the healthcare law, according to insurance industry officials and analysts. The early estimates come as insurance companies set out to design plans they intend to sell in 2015 through the state-based health insurance marketplaces that are a centerpiece of the Affordable Care Act, President Barack Obama´s signature domestic policy achievement that is widely referred to as Obamacare.

Jeb Bush has become the establishment´s candidate and top pick to win the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, according to a new analysis of the race. “We now consider Bush the leader of the field if he decides to run,” said the influential “Crystal Ball” from the University of Virginia´s Center for Politics. “In recent months, we’ve noticed an unmistakable and widespread desire among some of the Republicans we talk to, particularly ones who would be classified as members of the establishment on and off Capitol Hill, for a third Bush nominee in less than three decades.

(Video) The Obama ladies are in the house — the house of China, that is. First lady Michelle Obama, her two daughters, Malia and Sasha, and her mother touched down Thursday in China for what’s being touted as a weeklong feel-good tourist event, amid increasing murmurs back home about U.S. taxpayers having to foot the bill. Mrs. Obama is supposed to use her visit for soft diplomacy only, and shy from the more controversial topics that plague U.S.-China relations, namely human rights and economics. No reporters accompanied the family on the trip. “The nature of her visit is really quite

“Obamacare” as shorthand for the Affordcable Care Act was first used mostly by critics of the law, but now everyone’s using the moniker and President Obama has long since embraced it. But apparently no one told Nancy Pelosi, because she’s still ticked off at how much people talk about “Obamacare” instead of the “Affordable Care Act.” In response to a reporter asking a question about Obamacare being a political winner or loser, Pelosi said, “By the way, it’s called the Affordable Care Act. It’s called the Affordable Care Act. I know you didn’t intend any compliment or derogatory––it’s called the

Is Barack Obama simply too busy to be Chief Executive of the United States? Apparently. One of the primary functions of the president is to keep the nation safe, to preserve it from its enemies. To do that effectively, one would actually have to maintain something of a consistent level of attention to the moving pieces that directly influence how future events will unfold. None other than the truly sycophantic thinks for a second that President Obama cares a whit for anything that does not involve fundamentally altering the social composition of this country. Or golf. During the five-plus years

In a speech Friday, Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush praised illegal immigrants as "risk takers" who embody the entrepreneurial spirit of America and doubled down on his defense of Common Core. According to the Miami-Herald, Bush made his remarks in front of business leaders in Florida. “People who come here legally and illegally are the risk takers,” Bush reportedly said. “If you’re living in a rural area of Guatemala and you come, you’re a bigger risk taker than those who stay,” he added. Of course, the first action of those who come to the country illegally is breaking the law. Bush also said he

President Barack Obama said Wednesday that he thinks Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick “would make a great president or vice president.” Obama and Patrick, both Democrats, are friends and close political allies. The two men have campaigned for each other, with Patrick acting as a surrogate for Obama nationally during the 2012 presidential race. Patrick has said clearly that he intends to return to the private sector when his second term as governor is up at the end of the year and will not run for president in 2016. But he has not ruled out a run for office in the

Black students are more likely to be suspended from U.S. public schools — even as tiny preschoolers. The racial disparities in American education, from access to high-level classes and experienced teachers to discipline, were highlighted in a report released Friday by the Education Department´s civil rights arm. The suspensions — and disparities — begin at the earliest grades. Black children represent about 18 percent of children in preschool programs in schools, but they make up almost half of the preschoolers who are suspended more than once, the report said. Six percent of the nation´s districts with preschools reported suspending at

During her visit to China, first lady Michelle Obama pointed out that the ability to travel outside of the United States was "rare" but that she chose China for a reason. "It’s very rare that I have the opportunity to travel outside of the United States, and it’s even more rare to have the opportunity to travel with three generations — with my daughters, and with my mother," she said. "And it is no accident that one of our first trips as a family is here to China." Obama made her remarks while visiting a school in Beijing, with the Chinese first

Ellen DeGeneres was a completely slavish toady to President Obama as he appeared on her show to sell Obamacare -- not to young people, but to mothers. The president made his pitch to "especially all the moms out there who may have young people – 26, 27, do not have health insurance, but they think they’re invincible and nothing’s ever going to happen to ‘em – what we’ve said is you never know what life is going to throw at ya."

College basketball can wait. Did you know that March is actually National Nutrition Month? Today, First Lady Michelle Obama urged Americans via her "Let´s Move!" initiative to challenge their family members to eat one new fruit or vegetable per week in March to faithfully observe the occasion. "March is National Nutrition Month and you can celebrate by challenging your family to try a new fruit or vegetable each week," First Lady Michelle Obama said in an e-mail to supporters today. Never mind that there were less than two "each weeks" left in National Nutrition Month when the e-mail challenge was

Today’s Washington Post features an article by Steven Mufson and Juliet Eilperin headlined, “The biggest lease holder in Canada’s oil sands isn’t Exxon Mobil or Chevron. It’s the Koch brothers.” The article was based on a newly-issued two-page report by the far-left International Forum on Globalization. The Post reported: You might expect the biggest lease owner in Canada’s oil sands, or tar sands, to be one of the international oil giants, like Exxon Mobil or Royal Dutch Shell. But that isn’t the case. The biggest lease holder in the northern Alberta oil sands is a subsidiary of Koch Industries, the privately-owned
