Howard Dean to Middle Class: Taxes
Go Up or Programs Get Cut (Video)

Rasmussen Reports, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:bifgroovey, 2/18/2013 5:25:47 PM

Former Chairman of the Democratic National Committee Howard Dean, speaking with Scott Rasmussen on What America Thinks, said that “somebody has to tell the middle class that either your taxes are going to go up or your programs are going to get cut or else we´re going to go into financial oblivion, and nobody really wants to tell them that.” (Snip) Dean also said: "Inside Washington, people lose all their perspective and they end up getting sucked into this Washington culture which is pretty much unlike anything else in the country."

Comments:
Dear Howard - My taxes did go up. Working father of four now has $180 less a month due to increase in social security tax. Obama already increased everyones taxes (not to mention the price of gas).

Please post to word limit. LCom Staff.

My personal family economy is in a depression. I have stopped spending and am saving as much as possible.

Cut the programs.
It is the only way to balance the budget.
There really isn´t any choice when you do the math. If taxes were raised enough to balance the budget then average Americans would not have enough money left to buy food.

But..but...but...the President said that he would not raise taxes on anyone making less than $250,000, or was it $200,000. Not one dime in new taxes, I say.

I´m going to be irreverent here and call him a LIAR.

Fine, cut taxes and we get to choose which ´programs´ and departments get eliminated - not just ´cut´, but dismantled and not absorbed into another federal department.

Dean is right. So is OP.

Speaking of Cuts is a distraction. Spending will get reduced when Washington stops programs and eliminates agencies. They have to learn that some things need not be done at all.

Taxes have already gone up but no programs ended, In fact the biggest peacetime program in history, ACA, is just heginning.

It is also time to tell the 49% that do not pay any taxes it´s time to fork a bit over. You pay nothing, get back thousands on unearned tax credits and you keep wanting more. You are the problem.

The Republican have been saying that for 4 years. They want to cut spending though, not raise taxes. Where there are 3 government programs doing the same thing, they want to cut 2 of them. When the federal government is capitalizing and subsidizing energy forms that can´t compete on a level playing field, the GOP wants to stop. The GOP want to meet the the air and water standards that were in effect in 2008, not dream up new one that will shutter efficient US facilities while the Chinese crank out pollution at an astounding rate.

Democrats do not understand that raising taxes retards growth in the economy. They seem to think it has no effect, that is, if they consider it at all. Ultimately, raising taxes hurts the very people they want to help.

New cable network Al Jazeera America introduced itself to viewers on Tuesday with reports on political strife in Egypt and the impact of climate change on U.S. cities, shortly after a major pay TV distributor declined to carry the channel. The decision by AT&T's U-verse pay-TV service stemmed from a contract dispute over terms to carry the new network, AT&T spokesman Mark Siegel said. Al Jazeera responded by suing AT&T for breach of contract in Delaware Chancery Court. Globally, Al Jazeera is seen in more than 260 million homes in 130 countries. But the new U.S. channel funded by the emir of

In the latest and by far most serious report concerning the off-the-field activities of Johnny Football, the NCAA is investigating whether Manziel received money for autographing hundreds of photos, footballs, helmets and other memorabilia in January.

Rochester, N.Y. -- She says she had no warning that someone was going to search her car after she left to catch her flight. So the woman contacted News10NBC. We found out it happened to her because she valet parked her car. Those are the only cars that get inspected. So if security feels it is necessary to search some cars in the name of safety, why not search all of them? Laurie Iacuzza walked to her waiting car at the Greater Rochester International Airport after returning from a trip and that's when she found it -- a notice saying her car was inspected after she left for her flight. She said, “I was furious. They never mentioned it to me when I booked the valet or when I picked up the car or when I dropped it off.”

The 2012 Republican presidential nominee said Obama didn´t have the foresight to anticipate Russia´s moves and should have been working earlier with allies to make clear the penalties that Russia would face if it moved into Ukraine. Romney did acknowledge that such steps may not have been enough though to hold back Russia President Vladimir Putin. "Had we communicated those things, there´s always

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last. The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral,

Most Supreme Court watchers are fixated these days on Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby—the important challenge to the Affordable Care Act’s contraception mandate scheduled for argument Tuesday. And why wouldn’t they be? With its potent mix of religion, sex, Obamacare, and prayerful corporations, it’s the blockbuster case of the term. It is also a crucial test of Chief Justice John Roberts’s leadership on the Supreme Court. Just two years ago, Roberts cast the deciding vote to largely uphold the Affordable Care Act.
