Should the GOP cave on taxes?
Human Events, by Mark LaRochelle

Original Article

Posted By:javaboy, 11/26/2012 6:06:41 AM

Republicans in Congress are under tremendous pressure to cave in to President Obama’s demand for tax hikes by December 31. These tax hikes are projected to generate $823 billion in additional revenues, and save another $127 billion in interest payments, for a cumulative reduction of $950 billion in the national debt over 10 years, according to the left-wing Center for Budget and Policy Priorities. Ten-year budget projections are notoriously unreliable, but the White House estimates budgets for five years. By 2017, the administration projects that the national debt will be more than $21 trillion

Comments:
The problem with "baseline budgeting" (what the govt does to hide the true spending increases) and the Orwellian re-defining of words is that it usually works, keeping the average person completely deceived and in generally the dark.

It´s insane to think these tax increases will be used on deficit reduction. Obama will have the new money spent on foolishness before the ink is dried on the deal.

The left know their own voters the best and they have to have a manufactured boogeyman to activate their base. Bush is fading as a villain,so they need to move on to the rich.
The GOP wants it both ways by stopping tax rate increases but raising revenues from other sources.They know they´re going to face a flood of pressure from the media and left wing nag groups.

Should?!! They will without question. It will give them an issue to run on in 2014 and 2016 by saying that they will promise to cut taxes. It is how the game is played.

There is only one way to reduce the deficit at this point.... And the politicians know it. INFLATION. It´s the only way to prevent the coming increase in interest rates from bankrupting the country while allowing the politicians some sort of distance from culpability.

Inflation ( hyperinflation?) will diminish the debt and allow politicians to point to someone else for the blame. The suffering many of us will endur will cause even more dependency upon government and serve the political purposes of the liberal agenda.

#3 absolutely nails the issue. Every penny the GOP puts on the table, either rate increase or elimination of deductions will be spent to feather nests of special interests and create more dependence for future ´Rat candidates to use.
Not a penny more to feed the entitlement monster under any circumstances. Come hell or high water.

I have the same concers as others that spending will not be cut; maybe projected spending five or more years out will be projected to be cut, but that will never materialize.

The issue is spending, not revenue. The government´s revenue from 2011 is enough to cover the government´s outlays in 2005. I think that we could easily survive if the government cut their spending back to the 2005 level.

Tax inreases would be perfectly rational and called for if they were matched wuth reliable reductions and controls on future government spending. Immigration reform, including generous amnesty for current illegal aliens, would be equally rational and appropriate if serious border control and enforcement were guaranteed.

We know, of course, that no such control of spending or the nation´s borders is part of the radical Democrat agenda. Regardless of what they might say -and as far as I know they have yet to make any serious proposals on these matters- their record suggests they cannot be trusted to keep any promises they might make.

The writing is on the wall. We are going to get higher taxes and more, not less government spending. And any immigration reform will certainly fail to include serious border control while proposing amnesty for current and future illegal aliens.

I am not among those who believe the Democrats are deliberately trying to ruin the country, thought I can appreciate why it seems that way to others. It actually makes no difference WHY they are pursuing the policies they are, since the consequences will be the same whatver the motives.

Nor do I subscribe to the racist, sexist, ageist, bigoted theory that the fundamental problem is demographics. The fundamental problem is ignorance, a great part of it resulting from systematic indoctrination of children in school and university. Unless education is reformed, America, the goose that laid the golden egg, the republic that provided so much for so many for so long, is cooked.

The point is not where or how the money will be spent. We already know that. The point is a few bucks out of very wealthy peoples pockets is being used as a club to pound the republicans into the ground. It is used as the quintessential proof of the argument the pubbies are the party of the rich fat cats. They should have gotten elected first, then dealt with this issue properly. Now they will just continue to be scapegoats.

It doesn´t matter what the House Republicans do. They will get the blame for everything that is going to go wrong, anyhow. As for the Senate Republicans, they will get even more of the blame, since the Senate is controlled by Democrats, and it will be necessary to cover for them.

Apparently, at least 50% of the voting population wants a party in power who will give them "free stuff".

If the R´s oppose that (and therefore increased spending) they will never win a presidential campaign again.

There is a new paradigm. The day of conservative politics is over, IMHO.

Global average temperature has been flat for a decade. But frightening myths about global warming continue. We’re told there are more hurricanes now. We’re told that hurricanes are stronger. But the National Hurricane Center says it isn’t so. Meteorologist Maria Molina told me it’s not surprising that climatologists assumed hurricanes would get worse. “Hurricanes need warm ocean waters,” but it turns out that “hurricanes are a lot more complicated than just warm ocean waters.” Computer models have long predicted nasty effects from our production of greenhouse gasses. But the nasty effects have not appeared. As far as hurricanes, more hit the United States

Blue-collar workers, especially those connected with labor unions who mine coal, drill for oil and gas, build pipelines, and toil in all those related areas of genuine economic activity, must be appalled. Barack Obama won re-election largely on the willingness of those types of unions to put aside their doubts about his real commitment to economic growth and to turn out by a two-to-one margin for him. That was decisive in states with large industrial unions: Ohio (18 electoral votes), Pennsylvania (20 electoral votes), Iowa (6 electoral votes), New Hampshire (4 electoral votes), and Wisconsin (10 electoral votes).

A meticulous new analysis examines the benefits of government-administered socialism among a representative cross section of individuals. It is an insightful departure from the usual studies of socialism that analyze only collective benefits to society using statistics about such things as income quartiles and poverty levels.

We are being played; it´s time we learned the game. Conservatives have their Constitution. Progressives have their Narrative. The current battle for America is between these two concepts, and each side uses different rules to fight it. One set of rules is consistent with an unchanging objective: limited government and individual freedoms. The other side´s rules are as fickle as their goals, which are never fully disclosed beyond the equivocal references to fairness and hyphenated forms of justice.

The International Telecommunications Union (ITU), an imprint of the UN, is holding its World Conference on International Telecommunications (WCIT) from December 3-14, 2012. The stated purpose of the WCIT is to update the UN´s "global treaty" on telecommunications to deal more directly and comprehensively with the internet. Knowing who controls the UN, it is not hard to see that a primary aim of the updated "treaty" will be to give credence to the regulation and monitoring of online activity in ways that are desirable to the (authoritarian) majority of member states.

The United States will not reverse its descent into the abyss of financial and societal bankruptcy until the current political and governing establishment is replaced. That will not happen until the American people, who have been deliberately ill-educated and deceived, experience first-hand the early stages of the turmoil and suffering extant in Europe and elsewhere. While professing to care for the interests of the average person, the underlying motivation for the vast majority of the governing class or Establishment is first and foremost self-aggrandizement and the acquisition of wealth.

Were the average Republican asked for a succinct statement of his views on taxation, he or she might respond thus: “U.S. tax rates are too high for the world we must compete in. The tax burden — federal, state, local, together — is too heavy. We need to cut tax rates to free up our private and productive sector and pull this economy out of the ditch.” This core conviction holds the party together. Yet today the leadership is about to abandon this conviction to sign on to higher tax rates or revenues, while the economy is nearing stall speed.

Jensen of the University of California at Berkeley and Professor James R. Flynn, an American expatriate at the University of Otago in New Zealand. What is so unusual in the academic world of today is that Professor Flynn´s latest book, "Are We Getting Smarter?" is dedicated to Arthur Jensen, whose integrity he praises, even as he opposes his conclusions.

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

Incidentally, Maraniss was telling the truth: Ann´s "days in Seattle" weren´t mentioned in Dreams from my Father and were only vaguely implied in Maraniss´s lengthy 2008 article.

With high school seniors and their families now deciding where to enroll for college next fall, they might want to take a gander at research showing the best -- and worst -- values for a degree. The shocker in a survey by PayScale, a research firm that focuses on compensation, is that there are schools where students would have been better off not attending. Why? The 20-year net return on their college investment amounts to a financial loss, even when financial aid is included.
