Poll: Republicans Getting Massacred
in Debate Over Tax Increases

Breitbart News, by John Nolte

Original Article

Posted By:smcchk, 12/2/2012 7:13:56 PM

How is it that the GOP is so feckless and ineffective that it can´t even convince the 48% who voted for Romney that raising taxes on those making over $250,000 is both pointless and bad policy: Sixty percent of all Americans back higher taxes on higher incomes in the new Post-ABC data. Earlier this month, an identical 60 percent of voters in the presidential election said income taxes should be raised on income over $250,000, according to the national exit poll.

Comments:
They lost this battle before it began. Give it up, GOP.

Heard on ´meet the press´ today (on radio, so do not know who it was) - if there is no deal, dems will let the Bush tax cuts expire, and then in January propose a new bill that reduces tax rates back on 98% of the population. So they will get what they want.

There is no substitute to winning elections.

Several GOP members of both Houses have already indicated their willingness to raise taxes before a single dem raised the issue. Not only does this behavior show how stupid they are but it proves both Boehner and McConnell have no control over their membership.

With friends like the republicans who needs enemies.....

The only arguments I hear against raising taxes are the ones I mutter to myself. The GOP is absolutely horrible at marketing their postions.

Despite the fraud, the election taught me that a wide swath of America no longer has an instinct for our founding principles and must be re-persuaded of their value. We have a lot of work to do!

The polling of how people feel about increased taxing of the wealthy should be no mystery - First it was big oil, then big insurance companies, big, bad Wall Street - anything to divide the country along economic measures. Is it any wonder that after 5--6 years of this garbage that people dislike anyone or any thing that earns more than they do? One of the most essential revisions to our tax system has to be that ALL people pay Federal income taxes taxes - EVERYONE! With no skin in the game, almost half of the population couldn´t care less about any tax policy or amount.

The majority of the Republicans serving in the House now were elected two years ago based on pledges that they would not raise taxes.

They honored their pledges and most of them were re-elected last month based on the same pledge.

It should not matter to them what the 99% of poll respondents living outside their districts think about tax increases.

Next year, when Congress reconvenes, the Republicans in the House will propose a bill restoring the Bush tax cuts, and it will pass because Republicans will be in the majority. If Nancy Pelosi wants the Democrats to propose a bill that increases taxes on anyone it will not pass because the Democrats are in the minority.

Then, if Obama and the Democrats want to restore the middle-class tax cuts that went over the cliff with everything else, they will have to pass the House´s bill restoring all of the tax cuts. This should give the President something to think about while he´s golfing in Hawaii.

What real cuts are being proposed?
If the only way to get cuts is to let the tax rates go back up, then at least there will be some kind of cuts. More cuts could be negotiated from there.

Really, the Dems would write a law extending Bush tax cuts for 98% of the people for just one year? And what are they going to do about the cuts in Sequestration? And what about all the new taxes Obama is proposing? I don´t think it will help them to show everyone just what is coming next year when the extension runs out. Their strategy is to get the GOP to cave.

I do not understand why folks do not see that 0bama and the Dimms want to blame the Repugs for the upcoming fiasco created by 0bamacare and his other failed policies.

Let the Dimms own the freakin economy for goodness sakes. Let them raise taxes on the "rich" for a year or two. It will be seen as a failure like all of 0bama´s policies.

The Repugs are trying to prove a negative (raising taxes will hurt the economy). Apparently the ignorant electorate needs to be educated by experience.

Take a moral stand and make the Dimms produce an agreed upon budget before we agree to more deficit spending.

Sadly, upcoming retirees who plan to sell their home to downsize will more than likely be taxed at a new obama capital gains tax, when added to state and city, like here in NY, could total 60%.

Interesting. I suspect that the same fraction of the electorate would have supported raising income taxes on incomes over $100,000. Or $75,000. Maybe $50,000 would begin to lower support. Message is that such persons will support raising taxes on anyone who earns more than they do, with the understanding that the taxes realized will be distributed among them.
What a way to make tax policy!

I´m afraid it´s lose-lose for us. Before the election, Obama told an Iowa editor in his "off the record" interview that he expected us to go over the fiscal cliff. When we do, here´s what to expect: A January state of the union speech reiterating that it´s all the Republicans´ fault and a proposal for the largest tax cut ever for the 98%. He now becomes the tax-cutter in chief. Game. Set. Match.

Call me an apostate (I doubt that´s what you´ll call me), but I don´t see why we couldn´t raise taxes on the top one percent. In our utter failure to explain this issue to the public, we´ve probably lost forever.

And the ´attitude´ of the poster above who says he´s top 1% is duly noted. I wonder if whatever he would do would be a matter of absolute financial necessity - or something else....

Not true #21, we don´t despise the wealthy. We either revere them (professional athletes, actors, singers, etc.) or we are jealous of them (royalty, businessmen, heiresses, etc.) At the end of the day, the liberals want to be those people, heck they are those people. Perhaps it is time to showcase the wealth that is sitting in Congress, the Supreme Court and the White House.

I read and generally like the Breitbart sites but I don´t understand their current obsession with these polls on who is winning the debate. The Dems own the media so of course the GOP will get the blame, they can have the best arguements but they will still lose. What matters is if they cave on the budget, not if a handful of people who are polled think the GOP are big meanies.

Any reasonable or effective rebuttal to the propaganda put out by the lamestream media will never see the light of day because it would defy the "conventional wisdom" of the media outlets controlled by themselves. We need Allen West to do a "susan rice Sunday show trip" and explain the true meaning of a "spending cut" at all of the morning talk shows.Washington cuts are really just a reduction in growth, rather than a true reduction in spending!

WATERFORD — New federal requirements that foods sold in schools be healthier have some area school districts opting out of the federal lunch program that provides subsidies for serving free or reduced-price meals to low-income students. Opting out means the districts do not have to follow food healthiness requirements. But it also means the districts lose federal money that covers the cost of free and reduced-price meals for poorer students. The Waterford Graded and Waterford High School districts have weighed their options and decided they’d rather forego the money and serve what they want. They’ll continue to cover the costs

A poll released Monday by the Pew Research Center has found that support for gay marriage is increasing in those who identify as Republicans under the age of 30. 61% of those polled who lean towards the party are in favor of legalizing same-sex marriage while only 35% oppose it. This is in stark contrast to Republicans over the age of 50 – only 27% of that audience support it. Pew also found a record high percentage of Americans – 54% – support allowing gays to marry. Only 18% of young Republicans said that “more gay and lesbian couples raising children”

In a speech to Indonesian students, civic leaders and government officials, Kerry tore into climate change skeptics. He accused them of using shoddy science and scientists to delay steps needed to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases at the risk of imperiling the planet.

The further left a radical politician wants to go, the more likely he is to wrap his agenda in a mainstream Republican brand. In his interview with Bill O’Reilly, Obama compared himself to Nixon (not for the reason most Republicans would expect) and in his State of the City address, Bill de Blasio compared himself to Fiorello H. La Guardia; a former Republican mayor of New York City. The constant mentions of La Guardia, a universally popular figure, were a poor mask for a radical address filled with ugly divisive rhetoric, class warfare and schemes that will bankrupt the city.

Instead the New Zealand court gave him “permanent name suppression” to protect his status in his Muslim community.

Republican leaders on the House Science Committee are accusing the Environmental Protection Agency of disregarding science in its push to impose carbon dioxide limits on power plants. Committee Chairman Lamar Smith, R-Texas, and 20 other Republican lawmakers sent a letter to EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy on Thursday, claiming the agency has "muzzled" members of its independent science advisory board. The EPA released a proposal in September that would set emissions caps for new coal-fired power plants and would likely require the industry to use carbon-capture technology, which involves burying the carbon underground. Critics of the proposed rule say the technology,

I have no objections to Jeb Bush running for president. He obviously has a wide appeal as a potential candidate. (Snip) His support of Common Core, however, will also find many who are in the conservative ranks objecting, since they fear that Common Core represents educational centralism and having the government ram federal standards down their throats. What I do object to is that Bush is already being heralded as the obvious candidate, the man to whom the big money must and will flow.

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

YOKOHAMA, Japan — Climate change is already having sweeping effects on every continent and throughout the world’s oceans, scientists reported Monday, and they warned that the problem is likely to grow substantially worse unless greenhouse emissions are brought under control. The report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group that periodically summarizes climate science, concluded that ice caps are melting, sea ice in the Arctic is collapsing, water supplies are coming under stress, heat waves and heavy rains are intensifying, coral reefs are dying, and fish and many other creatures are migrating toward the poles or

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

Washington — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Monday finalized long-delayed rules that will require automakers to install back-up cameras in all vehicles by May 2018. The new rules set rear visibility standards that automakers will initially be able to meet only by installing cameras. At the same time, major automakers said Monday they are petitioning the Obama administration to let them end the use of side view mirrors if they install cameras that could perform the same task — a move that could improve fuel efficiency.

President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security caught then released 68,000 aliens who had previously been convicted of a crime, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows. The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported.

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol. They say it contains enzymes known as HMGF (hydroxy methyl glutaryl flavonones) which can attack proteins in the body known to cause heart disease. The study found bergamot could even be as effective as statins, used to control cholesterol but which can have side effects in
