Mark Levin rips Bill Kristol
over tax hikes: ´Stop talking
like the lib you used to be´

The Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:Donttaxmebro, 11/20/2012 10:24:31 AM

Radio host Mark Levin disagreed Monday with Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol on tax hikes, and said that he is aiding “Obama’s attack on capitalism and successful people.” As a panelist on “Fox News Sunday,” Kristol has argued that the Republican Party should be willing to raise taxes and that the tea party wouldn’t care if “a few millionaires pay a couple percent more in taxes.” But Levin — a prominent figure within the tea party movement — ripped Kristol’s analysis. “Among the others who I think it’s time just to go someplace and talk among yourselves

Comments:
There´s a war breaking out and Bill Kristol is prattling on about tax policy. It´s like the world is upside-down.

Standing ovation for Mr. Levin. Almost 40% of all income taxes are paid by the "wealthy" already and where has that gotten us?

it is not about the taxes, it is about the spending. We would not have pressure to raise taxes if we could control our spending.

Let the Dimms own the economy, but we must put a line in the sand regarding making our children and grandchildren pay our debts.

As individuals, you legally cannot pass on your personnal debt to your heirs, but our government does this by deficit spending.

The Repugs and the Dimms needs to be tossed on the ash heep of history. They brought us this $16 trillion in debt, cultural rot, and a political system that does not produce leaders with honor and integrity..

Yo, Kristol and your running-dog RINO collaborationists:
One person paying a different rate than another by virtue of having higher income is the basic tenet of Marxism, and wrong.

It is never right, and is at the root of most of our problems,along with Racism.

Marxism, Racism, Murder, Voter Fraud and Homos.
You go for that, you a Democrat.

Ordinarily I would agree but have come to the conclusion: The Republicans should either concentrate on educating the public on why the rich should not be taxed - they obviously have no clue - or not come out against it because it makes no sense to the majority of people and remains merely an albatross around our necks to help sink us every time.

Taxes are just a misdirection. The real game in town is inflation of the money supply which in turn is a tax on all Americans.

I like Levin. If I fess up with the money to renew my satellite radio next month, he will be why.
So many Republicans have slipped farther to the left than even Democrats were 30 years ago. I guess having political influence or power is more important to them than having beliefs.
I was skeptical about quitting the party last summer, but it appears it was the right move.

Kristol´s bottom line is war. He is a true war monger. You can tell what really matters to people by what they are willing to compromise on or let go entirely. Kristol never stops advocating for war even as he is ok with taxing only the rich.

My view is if it comes to it - let ALL the Bush tax cuts expire. Shared sacrifice is called for - not some kind of parody.

Part of me wants to say, go ahead and raise taxes on the folks earning more than a million a year.... ´cause most of those Hollywood types and crony capitalists who sucked at the Obama trough (I´m kinda thinking like Boss Immelt, the GE crony who was Obama´s Jobs Czar, moving his jobs to China) voted for Dear Leader(US). Let those suckers pay (which, I´ll admit won´t cover Obama´s spending for a morning before lunch).

And if you´re a Republican making over a million a year, why haven´t you moved most of your income producing assets to tax-free municipal bonds anyway?

The problem with Levin´s position is that it´s a lose-lose for the GOP. They will get no electoral benefit from taking a principled stand on behalf of overtaxed millionaires. Of course, Obama´s tax on the rich is pointless and counterproductive. Even Obama knows it won´t amount to squat in terms of revenue. Even some Dems are finally admitting that they´d be fine with us going over the fiscal cliff and for everyone´s taxes to go up. It might tank the economy, but if they cared about that, they wouldn´t be Democrats. All they care about is getting more money to spend to solidify their political power.

Letting all the rates rise will result in a windfall to the government and a massive amount of anger from the middle class, which they can then direct against those heartless, plutocratic Republicans, who let everyone´s rates go up just because they wanted to protect the rich. Obama gets everything he wants, plus he gets to pin all the negative fallout on the GOP, who won´t win another election for a generation. Levin´s stance is a classic case of someone concentrating so hard on winning the battle that he loses the war.

I heard Kristol´s comments, and they seemed reasonable to me. One of his points was that having lost the political debate, Republicans should try to limit the damage by restricting tax increases to very high income earners, not the $250,000 earners that the Democrats target. This is not completely unlike what Romney was proposing, albeit it´s done with rates rather than deductions. It has the virtue of being doable.

Let´s face it, the argument against tax increases on millionaires is a very tough sell. Our side tried and failed to win this argument.

Letting ALL the Bush tax cuts expire will indeed result in a *windfall* to he government - the federal government. And who controls the purse strings? Not Obama. Not Reid. The GOP House. No money can be spent without a bill originating in the House. The debt can be paid down and our bills paid. Imagine that :-)

The idea that the GOP is too stupid to win a national argument with Obama and the democrats over why everyone´s taxes went up is truly a sad admission that you do NOT believe in the republicans. If the republicans cannot hold strong or even advocate successfully for their position - why even have them?

On her Thursday broadcast, “The Kelly File” host Megyn Kelly brought on Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer to sound off on the latest excerpt of President Barack Obama’s interview with the New Yorker magazine’s David Remnick. In that excerpt, Obama blamed Fox News and conservative talker Rush Limbaugh for the gridlock in Washington, D.C. Krauthammer noted Obama has “the commanding heights of the culture” in his corner and said it was unbecoming of the leader of the free world to complain on those grounds. “At least he is not blaming it on climate change or George W.

On Thursday, semi-retired radio talker Neal Boortz predicted the republican party will not win control of the U.S. Senate in the 2014 midterm elections, despite all the pitfalls the democrats and president Barack Obama are facing, particularly with regards to ObamaCare. The reason, Boortz said, would be the GOP’s tendency to run on issues related to social conservatism. Boortz explained the importance to the republic for a GOP win next year while guest hosting Sean Hannity’s Thursday radio show: this whole thing about Phil Robertson and what have you – it speaks a lot to what we have

On Tuesday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor,” Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer insisted the divide within the Republican Party has been exaggerated, adding that Republicans disagree over strategy but not ideology. “[I] think this whole thing is as you say very much blown up by the liberal media because it’s a great dramatic story,” Krauthammer said. “But here’s the fundamental contradiction.

During the online-only portion of Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” on Wednesday night, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer laid out his theory on what Obamacare’s real intended purpose is: an instrument to redistribute wealth. Krauthammer made that claim in his column last week, but he explained how it works in practice to host Bret Baier and co-panelists former New Jersey Superior Court Judge Andrew Napolitano and The Hill associate editor A.B.

Scarborough was asked by Hewitt if he had any idea how many people would ultimately lose their health care coverage because of that law. Scarborough replied by saying many more Americans would be impacted by that law than what then-President George W. Bush had said in his 2003 state of the union speech regarding Iraq trying to procure yellow cake uranium from Niger.

WASHINGTON — Tennessee Republican Sen. Bob Corker called out fellow Republicans Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and Sen. Mike Lee of Utah Thursday, accusing them of delaying a vote on the bill to fund the government and prevent a government shutdown to suit their own desires for publicity. Cruz, earlier this week, held the floor for over 21 hours, speaking in defense of defunding Obamacare with that government funding bill. He asked other Republican senators to join him in voting against moving forward on a bill passed by the House , which would fund the government while defunding Obamacare.

That reference was a comparison to the current situation in Middle East involving Syria and a pending U.S. strike over the use of chemical weapons, and how those seemingly isolated events could unfold into something bigger.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators.

It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes.

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle.

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner.
