Liberal Democrats: Higher rates
for wealthy ´just the beginning´

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Jonathan Easley

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/30/2012 11:37:15 AM

A group of House Democrats has formed its own “Gang of Six” to push for progressive tax reform — in which the expiration of the Bush-era tax rates for the wealthiest Americans is “just the beginning.” “In response to the call for progressives to draw a red line in the fiscal cliff sand, here is our big picture stance on corporate and individual tax reform,” Rep. Michael Honda (D-Calif.) said in a statement. “Six progressive tax principles from a new Gang of Six. The expiration of the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest

Comments:
What a complete shock coming from these Marxists. s/o They should call themselves the "Communist" caucus because that´s what they are. This group represents well the most odious members of the Democrat party.

The "Gang of Six" are the biggest takers in Congress. The only way they keep their jobs are by getting free stuff for their constituents.

The wealthiest Americans are not the same as the top income earners. Let´s be very clear on this. I only want to tax people like Sean Penn so wherever he fits in the formula, that´s who we ought to tax into oblivion.

That right # 3 tax the hell out of the Hollywood do nothings. They do nothing to contribute to the betterment of society. They are the true takers. Inflated payslips and for what? The left complains about CEO salaries and they are running companies that produce for the common good. Why should a liberal actor make millions for a lousy 90 minute movie? If the left wants to get it right, tax these b......s 90% on their gross.

It doesn´t surprise me to see Mike Honda of California at the top of the "Gang of Six". He´s from Northern California and No. Calif. is about as different from So. Calif. as night is from day. I always hated voting in No. California, because my husband and I were one of the few Republicans voting and the poll workers looked at us as if we were lepers.

It´s pretty much built in to tax-centered policy that the middle class will get it good and hard. Does anyone think that rasing the nominal rate on Buffett will get much more money out of the super rich? But we will be supposed to assume that they´ve done their part. In the end, it´s a stronger relationship between big businessa / the 1% types like Gates, Soros and Buffett and Democrat government.

Change the conversation to economic, not government growth and spending cuts. The budget balances, the economy win and the people take goernment out of the center of their lives. Leave the misdirection to taxes (rates, deductions, legalizing drugs for taxes, carbon - the whole thing) out of it.

You can´t let the Democrats pick and choose who to tax. Start by sharing the pain by ending the extensions of the Bush and Obama tax cuts. Then end the extensions on unemployment insurance. Don´t cave on sequestration, force spending cuts.

I hope you all know what comes next when this round of tax increases is done. First there will be a VAT tax, then a government take over of 401K retirement from all the people who provided for their own retirement making that as insolvent as the social security system. All of this is only a drop in the bucket of Obama spending. The entire global GDP could not supply Obama spending. His base will not be satisfied but then add in all the third world basket cases ready to tax the US through UN treaties which Obama favours. If you are going broke trying to satisfy domestic takers wait till all the takers of the world unite! Just the beginning indeed! It is not hard to predict where the ending will be.

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony.

President Barack Obama used a Friday ceremony announcing his new nominee to lead the Department of Health and Human Services as a chance to celebrate the Affordable Care Act, even though it came with an action widely seen as a long time coming — the departure of HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. Obama, Sebelius and intended nominee Sylvia Mathews Burwell drew several standing ovations in the Rose Garden as they praised the work that led at least 7.5 million Americans to enroll in health insurance through exchanges, and millions more to gain coverage through Medicaid and other programs .

Last Thursday, Mozilla, the company that´s home to the web browser Firefox, forced the resignation of CEO Brendan Eich. What, precisely, had Eich done wrong? Back in 2008, Eich had donated $1,000 to the Proposition 8 effort backing traditional marriage in California. Dating website OKCupid posted a ban on Firefox traffic, issuing a message to Firefox users instead: "Those who seek to deny love and instead enforce misery, shame, and frustration are our enemies, and we wish them nothing but failure." That ban reportedly prompted the action at Mozilla. Of course, it was the people pushing for Eich´s ouster who were enforcing

Sen.

At last, one House Republican is ready to use the Constitutional power of the purse to reign in Attorney General Eric Holder’s lawlessness. Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Virginia), chairman of the Appropriations subcommittee that oversees Eric Holder’s Justice Department will utilize the power of the purse to withhold funds from the Justice Department. Eric Holder has been lobbying the Republican controlled House for a larger budget. Wolf says he will withhold $1,000,000 for every instance of failure for Eric Holder to respond to Wolf’s demands for information. The Constitution vests the House of Representatives with the power of the purse, an enormously effective tool

Clinton ducked, and she did not appear to be hit by the object. She then joked about it. "Is that somebody throwing something at me? Is that part of Cirque de Soleil?" Clinton quipped.

President Barack Obama saved wife Michelle’s skirt from blowing above her head in the wind as they boarded Air Force One today. As the Obamas boarded the plane in Houston, Michelle’s skirt began to vigorously billow in the wind. Barack kindly placed his hand over his wife’s bottom to save her from potentially embarrassing photos. In doing so, the President helped Michelle avoid a fiasco similar to the ‘Marilyn moment’ experienced by the Duchess of Cambridge on Monday when she disembarked her flight in Wellington, New Zealand.

WASHINGTON — Kathleen Sebelius, the health and human services secretary, is resigning, ending a stormy five-year tenure marred by the disastrous rollout of President Obama’s signature legislative achievement, the Affordable Care Act. Mr. Obama accepted Ms. Sebelius’s resignation this week, and on Friday morning he will nominate Sylvia Mathews Burwell, the director of the Office of Management and Budget, to replace her, officials said. The departure comes as the Obama administration tries to move beyond its early stumbles in carrying out the law, persuade a still-skeptical public of its lasting benefits,

Stephen Colbert will soon be the first openly partisan comic with a late night show on network television. It´s just one reason why today´s news that the liberal host of The Colbert Report will take over for David Letterman on The Late Show smacks of culture, not show business pragmatism. Late night hosts must appeal to a wide audience. So poaching a comedian from the niche-friendly world of cable television makes little sense, particularly a figure with a hard-partisan persona. Yes, Colbert plays a "conservative" on his Comedy Central program, but it´s just a pose to mock the right and

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

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.

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. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.
