Dems trying to blame republican for tax increases


#1

Slimy liberal Rep. Chris Van Hollen accused Republicans of wanting to raise taxes on those Medicare to protect millionaires. Van Hollen was on FOX News Sunday this morning.“What we said was we wanted to take a balanced approach that very high income earners need to contribute a little more to reducing our deficit. Because otherwise folks on Medicaid and Medicare who are earning $22,000 a year median income would get walloped. I know you want to wallop them to protect the millionaires.”

And Democrats will continue to repeat this lie as long as they continue to get away with it.

Of course, it was Democrat Barack Obama who signed into law this week a bill that hits workers making less than $30,000 a year harder than those making $500,000 a year.

Obama has increased taxes across the board for everyone but it looks like they will blame republicans for this. Did he lie? When does he not lie?

They are never happy.

As always ‘let facts be submitted to a candid world.’

The 112th Congress did not enact any laws that raised taxes; ergo, the President could not have signed such. Certain temporary tax cuts expired through inaction by the 112th Congress.

A reason payroll taxes are regressive is because there is a taxable maximum (Contribution and Benefit Base) which should be eliminated to help OASDI solvency.

When did Republicans start voting against tax cuts? January 1 2013, 151 House Republicans voted against HR 8 which made permanent lower tax rates for 99% of taxpayers (http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2012/roll659.xml). Shame on them!

Yes, how dare they vote against a bill that increases our debt and takes more from the investors and job producers!

Only 2 parts to the equation.

Income and Outgo.

Any bill that solely reduces Outgo (spending) and doesn’t negatively impact national defense should be passed.

Any bill that solely reduces income (taxes) that doesn’t do so in a completely unfair way (special interest groups) should be passed.

Any bill that reduces income (taxes) and increases Outgo (spending) should be voted down unless there is very very good reason for passing it.

It’s really simple, the government needs to balance things. Take in less taxes AND reduce spending. Reduce spending FIRST, in my opinion.
