Why, No, Democrats Haven’t Given Up On Raising Taxes

They’re intent on further destroying America’s economy

(Washington Post) Senate Democrats plan to draft a budget blueprint that calls for significantly higher taxes on the wealthy, oil and gas companies and corporations doing business overseas, reopening a battle over taxes Republicans had hoped to lay to rest with the “fiscal cliff.”

Raise taxes on corporations and those companies will pass the costs on to the consumers. It’ll also drive corporations and wealthy out of the country, removing more wealth from the nation. Democrats do not care, as they want money to continue being Big Daddy Government.

For nearly four years, Senate leaders have ducked their legal duty to craft a comprehensive budget framework. Now, however, Democrats see the budget process as “a great opportunity” to pursue additional tax increases — and to create a fast-track process to push them through the Senate, Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

On the bright side, there really is little chance there will actually be a budget brought forth. While it could be passed without Republican votes, Harry Reid has never had enough Democrat votes to pass one previously, so hasn’t bothered bringing a budget to the floor.

    They see a “great opportunity” … to kill more jobs, further depress the economy, send more manufacturing overseas, engorge government even more, and, most importantly, to soak the rich. Because that’s how they roll in demacatland.

    Happy Martin Luther King Day, folks

    And to our soon to be reinaugurated
    POTUS, I want to use a showbusiness
    term, which is, break a leg Mr. Prez,
    I mean, really break a leg.

    Some of the uber wealthy WILL leave the country, but most will not. And the ones that do leave ? well most of us LOVE AMERICA and if there are some who are extremely wealthy and are in love their money more than their country and are concerned that they may have to pay an additional 4% well I support their right to leave. Too many on the right have been saying that they no longer love the USA, that they want to fight our democratically elected government,or give up their citizenship. I say good riddance.

    To paraphrase the highlights of president elect Obama’s speech yesterday, he said that whenever Americans put sheir shoulders to the wheel of history, it moves … forward.

    Well, duh. Inspiring, huh? LOL

    LOL Honestly, that is what he said, almost verbatim. Can’t make this stuff up, folks.

    (groan) Four more years of that putz.

    the fake prez has always been nothing but platitudes and press conferences and grandstanding.

    Like with his presidential DECREE that someone else should send a letter out to doctors reminding them that they CAN report threats or violence to the police.

    His attention to detail is astounding.

    DOn’t forget his other DECREE that someone else send a letter out to police forces reminding them that they should run background checks on guns that they find at crime scenes.

    Astounding lawyer this one.

    Our country is in GREAT (someone else’s) hands.

    That empty suit do have extraordinary leadership skills, don’t he?

    And lest we forget; remarkable executive and managerial skills …, and, oh yeah, such, um, unusual qualifications to be POTUS, too.

    But, but, but it is so cool to have our first black president, right, you ditzy 52%ers?

  7. Brian says:

    Did you ever notice that Democrats never have new, original or clever ideas?

    They always resort to resuscitating programs which have already failed miserably elsewhere.

    They’re too stupid, too lazy and too immoral to, for example, develop a workable compromise between capitalism and socialism.

    Instead, they fall back on Communism, an extreme of socialism.


  8. Gumball_Brains says:

    Brian, for most of the socialist lemmings, it is just out of sheer ignorance. They are the liberals, the liberal elites, the “gov’t must do something to…” people.

    It is the ruling elite that know the truth. However, the are also protected from the failures that they know is inherent in the Communist\Socialist system. THey have learned to create laws, rules, and overheads to protect them when systems fail. Have any of the corrupt democrats faced real charges? Have they been forced to pay back any monies? Have they been forced to resign?

    Have any of the crony-funded projects, unions, back-pocket organizations been forced to feel the pain of loss of income? Have they been forced to answer audits?

  9. Brian says:

    Gums, I wish that you would stop calling liberals elitists.

    It has been my experience that, quite to the contrary, liberals are the way that they are, because, collectively, they feel insecure, inferior, inadequate and stupid; hence, the reason for their compensatory bravado.

    Every time that you foolishiy allege that they are elite, you tell them exactly what they want to hear, which is that you feel inferior to them.

    Not very bright, guy. You’re smarter than that.

  10. Gumball_Brains says:

    My point, is that there are two levels of Liberals. Just like there are two levels of republicans. You have the regular republican who works, honors his family and believes in the Constitution and pays his taxes with regret. Then there are the Elite Republicans who make a career out of telling others how to live and LOOOOOVVVEEE to party with the other elites in power. They LOOOVVVEEE to compromise in order to just get along. They believe that everything can be compromised, even the old constitution.

    I call them elites because that is how they act. It, at least for me, your results may vary, does not denote their position over me. It does not denote actual power. Only relative power due to their perceived status.

  11. Brian says:

    I knew exactly what you meant. If they shared my perceptions, they wouldn’t be Liberals.

  12. Brian says:

    “Then there are the Elite Republicans who make a career out of telling others how to live and LOOOOOVVVEEE to party with the other elites in power. They LOOOVVVEEE to compromise in order to just get along. They believe that everything can be compromised, even the old constitution.”

    We’ll have to agree to disagree on that one.

    Rank ‘n file Republicans are mostly to blame for the ills of the party.

    They gave us Rinos Bob Dole, John McCain and Mitt Romney, instead of someone like Reagan, GHW or GW Bush.

    They gave us such ditzy candidates as Christine O’Donnell, Sharron Angle and Carly Fiorina (to name a few ditzes), instead of six suberbly qualified other candidates who were ahead in the polls and who would have enabled us to regain control of the U.S.Senate, too, not just the House.

    FYI, without a veto proof majority in the Senate, Republicans in the House have their hands tied.

  13. Brian says:

    And besides being suberbly qualified, those other six Republican candidates were superbly qualified, too.

  14. Brian says:

    Obama is like a little kid, pretending to be president, imagining that he is royalty, and becoming petulant for childish reasons, just like a little kid would do, too.

    Actually, it’s more like monkey see, monkey do.

    Democrats sure know how to pick ’em – Carter, Clinton and now Bonzo.

  15. Brian says:

    If those con artists, liars and thieves, aka, Congressional Democrats, cut spending commensurate with raising taxes, how would they be able to “redistribute the wealth” to the lazy bums, deadbeats, freeloaders and parasites who put those sleazy crooks into office?

    These developments and all of their ramifications are far more immoral than slavery ever was.

  16. Undeniably consider that that you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be on
    the web the easiest thing to take note of. I say to you,
    I definitely get irked while other folks consider worries that
    they plainly do not recognise about. You managed to hit the nail
    upon the highest as smartly as outlined out the entire thing without having side-effects
    , other folks can take a signal. Will likely be again to get more.
    Thank you
