Gecko Gingrich: If I recall my Solomonic fables, the GOP would be the one's who rolled over on their baby and killed it. "Obama" would be the one who will say, "Don't cut it in half!" right at the last second.
HeadLever: It sure is. It may not be our most pressing problem, but I'll argue that it is one of our biggest...
HeadLever: MFK: The current system is rigged in favor of the top 10% earners.Well, then, let's reduce teh amount of tax loopholes they have avalible to them as Feldstein proposes. If you were going to only tax the rich, you would not get very far in the way of deficit reduction. For any significant deficit reduction to take place, the middle class is going to have to participate.Oh, and here is a little blub calling our your retared assertion that tax loopholes are only for the middle class:
HeadLever: MFK: Reducing loopholes" is doublespeak for "let's take away the few benefits the middle class gets from the tax code so the ultra wealthy don't have to see their nearly non-existant tax rates increase".Hmm, I wasn't aware the the wealthy did not use tax loop holes. My mistake then./lol
HeadLever: Teufelaffe:[imgs.xkcd.com image 461x295]Strike out 'MY" in your pic and replace with "CBO". That is what they get paid to do.
HeadLever: un4gvn666: All these hoops to jump through and logical pretzel-twists, just to avoid the reality that taxes have to go up.Many republicans do not have an issue with increasing revenues, as many have supported the notion that we can reduce loopholes to get this done. Krauthammer is apparently on board. If some Democrats would maybe start supporting this notion as well and stop carpet-bombing those that are willing to work toward this path, we may start to see some movement in this regard, while at the same time marginalizing those repbulicans that are truley a roadblock toward this goal.
rtaylor92: Ooh analogies! Can I play Charles?Democrats see the pool as half empty, Republicans see the pool as half full.
