Another Tax-the-Rich Plan
Introduced in Congress

Cybercast News Service, by Susan Jones

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 3/8/2013 11:20:56 AM

Congressional liberals aren´t done taxing wealthy Americans. On Thursday, Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.) introduced the "Keeping Social Security Promises Act," which asks the wealthiest Americans to "pay their fair share into the fund." "The people on top are doing phenomenally well," Sanders told a news conference on Thursday. "It is time to ask them to help us, in this case with making sure Social Security is there for our kids and grandchildren." The bill would require those with yearly incomes of $250,000 or more to pay the same 6.2 percent payroll tax

I´m worn out screaming about cutting spending and not increasing taxes. It just never ends. They should all be in jail for willfully destroying this country.

Does anyone ever notice that the liberals only "plan" to improve jobs and the fiscal problems our Federal government has is a plan to raise taxes....and to take more money from our fellow citizens?

How much is enough? What will be their "plan" when they have taxed "the rich" out of existence?

It´s always pay their fair share, pay their fair share, on and on and on with these liberals, why don´t they just pass a bill to take everything the rich have and be done with it. They never talk about the deadbeats who contribute nothing because of their laziness to do their fair share.

FTA: "People are quite dependent upon Social Security now," DeFazio said, because they haven´t been able to save enough money: "That´s not going to change at any predictable time in the future."

Rats, I thought we were promised change. Maybe these two Commies should talk to the Commie in Chief about the expansion of dependency and lessening of savings during his reign of error, and his stupid policies which call for more of the same.

Apparently, these two numbskulls believe "the rich" should basically reimburse the government and then some for the shortfalls caused by the payroll tax holiday, fourfold extension of unemployment benefits, and Zero´s war on prosperity. This is more insanity, not a cure.

Their "94% of Americans pay SS on all their income" is a faulty premise also. Too large a number of Americans receive EITC which well more than offsets what they pay in SS, and "the rich" are already shelling out over half their income in taxes, well more than the 94%.

Maybe these two should try a novel concept for raising revenue, such as putting people back to work, fudged and downward-adjusted labor numbers notwithstanding.

...the ´´Keeping Social Security Promises Act,´´ which asks the wealthiest Americans to ´´pay their fair share into the fund.´´

I´m sorry, Senators, but you didn´t explain who, exactly, broke the promise.

If the rich can collect SS, the theybshould pay into it, too. Why in Hades should they collect and not pay?

As all Commies and libs do, sanders just makes it up. The $113K limit is the covered compensation amount. When I started working 40 years ago it was $10,400. In those days you didnt pay tax on benefits either. SWo.. all this thief wants to do is raise the tax rate without actually improving the benefit. Time to repeal the complete Ponzi scam that is social security, or at least phas itr out over the next 25-30 myears or so.

#5 do you really believe what you just wrote? Do you really think the rich don´t pay into SS and that they collect without paying. What have you been reading? They pay in and often don´t get to collect and what they do collect they pay a lot more taxes on than others because they have too much other income. Jeez.

Unfortunately, Peter DeFazio, who never met a tax he didn´t like, is the very definition of moron writ large. He barely squeeked back into office this last time due to the fact that he actually had a decent opponent. But due to some extremely nasty and possibly ethically challenged advertising, he was reelected. The guy is very nasty.

Because it was set up, by left-wing New Dealers, as an insurance program, not a welfare program. So if you make $10 million/year for every year you work, you only collect $2,000/month.

We ALL pay into the social security fund. But at somewhere around the $110,000.00 level (per year) you stop paying anymore $ into the social security fund..... fir he rest of the year.

You see, somewhere in the $55,000 to $60,000 per year range you reach a point to where you will not gain anymore in your monthly SS retirement check.

There was wisdom in placing a cap on how much a financially successful person has to pay into a system. Because ...... If they are going to limit the mount (monthly/yearly) you can take out of the SS system, shouldn´t there also be a limit on how much you pay into the SS system?

In any event, those of us who have the nerve to succeed ARE paying into the SS system.

I have here in my hand a list of six people who think Darrell Issa is a fellow traveler of Joseph McCarthy. I compiled these names while watching Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, lead his panel’s proceedings Thursday to hold former IRS official Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress. Among the half-dozen Democrats who made the comparison: “What we’re about today brings us right back to the McCarthy era,” Rep. Gerald Connolly (D-Va.) said. Rep.

The Justice Department says a 29-foot war memorial cross on a San Diego mountain is not an unconstitutional promotion of Christianity and should remain on federal property. The Obama administration said an appeals court ruling declaring the cross on Mount Soledad a violation of the constitutional separation of church and state undermined an act of Congress and conflicted with recent Supreme Court decisions. But, in a filing Monday to the nation´s highest court, it said an appeal should first be considered by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals because there is no imminent risk that the cross is removed.

A new report by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service finds that solar facilities in California are acting like “mega traps” that kill and injure birds. As a result, “entire food chains” are being disrupted. USFWS’s National Fish and Wildlife Forensics Laboratory studied three solar farms in Southern California: Desert Sunlight, Genesis Solar and Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System (ISEGS). Two-hundred and thirty-three different birds from 71 species were found over the course of a two-year study. The three main causes of death were: 1. Solar flux: Exposure to temperatures over 800 degrees F. 2. Impact (or blunt force) trauma:

President Obama on Friday formally nominated Sylvia Mathews Burwell to head the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) following the botched resignation of Kathleen Sebelius. Burwell served in several positions under the Bill Clinton administration, including as a deputy aide to then-budget director Jack Lew. In July 1995, Burwell (then Sylvia Mathews) was one of several key aides questioned by the Senate Whitewater Committee regarding the death of deputy White House counsel Vince Foster. Foster’s death was officially ruled a suicide. The Clinton White House eventually admitted to misleading investigators

A nine-part series called “Years of Living Dangerously” will debut this Sunday evening on Showtime–emphasizing stories “from the front lines” of climate change impact. The first episode, now available online, stars actors Harrison Ford and Don Cheadle, two of the series’ correspondents. “It’s the biggest story out there,” said James Cameron, an executive producer of the series, in an interview.

Sucking carbon dioxide out of the air might be used as a last-ditch attempt to stop global warming, UN scientists say. The technology is proposed as a ‘Plan B’ if Governments fail to cut carbon dioxide emissions by up to 70 per cent before 2050. Reducing greenhouse gases to manageable levels will cost up to four per cent of global GDP by 2030, according to a draft version of a report to be published in Berlin on Sunday by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). That would involve Britain and other nations increasing spending ten-fold on wind farms and other green

The historical significance of this moment cannot be overstated. The presidents will come together as a powerful symbol of America’s ability, as demonstrated 50 years ago, to

The turnaround process involves the sacking of every teacher and staffer at each of the schools, according to an email from the Chicago Teachers Union obtained by The Daily Caller. Naturally, the union bosses aren’t happy that the nation’s third-largest school district is employing such sweeping measures to improve some of its worst schools.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

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.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi.

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM.

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
