Because it's a "class-warfare" smokescreen tactic by Barry & Co. that will ONLY raise enough "revenue" to fund the government for approximately EIGHT (8) DAYS!!!

Maybe because a big majority of Repulsitards are rich? Could that be the reason?

Fine...when you get old, why don't you do like Jebus and give up your Social Security (brought in by Democrats and big government) to the poor. While you are at it, give up your Medicare too. Remember, goverment should not be meddling in your affairs so you better hand over the money they will be offering you.

Re: i wonder WHY the us republicans are against higher taxes for riches?
Raising tax rates DECREASES tax revenue. So, the Obamao 'solution' doesn't only fail its alleged objective, it makes the problem far worse.

We have, first and foremost, a gov't spending problem. Not only do they spend far more money than they have to spend, they squander it on programs that never put anything back into the system.

Half the country doesn't even pay income tax, yet they receive countless benefits that the 'rich' pay for.

Obamao wants to completely destroy the US from within, forcing it to collapse under its own unsupportable weight. Anyone who says anything to the contrary is a liar, a moron, or both.

Of this is an easy one. Because republicans are scum and would rather hold the entire country hostage for a few of their country-club buddies. And the mouth breathers on here will still find a way to blame Obama.

Better than the 'cuts' that the right has put on the table. Tell me, how long will the money given to NPR fund the government for? How about the national endowment for the arts? Planned parenthood? Food stamps? School lunches? Seems like these are the only programs ever put forth by the right, and they tally up to only a few billion.

I love it when these guys get called out and they scurry away from the thread. Happens all the time. I think Limbaugh has been off for the past few days, so it really isn't fair to even be discussing politics with them. They haven't been briefed on their talking points for a whole week.

No, actually, we care a lot, we give of ourselves because we want to not because we are forced to.

A lot of our taxes are allotted to help people, the social security taxes we payed in were supposed to have been specifically to help people in their old age. But in the 90's they decided to tap that retirement savings for all Americans, not just me. I was just speaking for myself because I don't have the right to speak for others.

Its called the Laffer Curve for a reason shit-wit. There's a debate as to where the peak tax-rate should be/is, and theres a lot of studies that put it all over the place. There is not, however, any debate as to whether or not the Laffer Curve is a linear plot with a negative slope. You lose. Go home.
