Taxman to Middle Class: 'Bend Over'

All the Republican controlled congress, after seeing ample evidence that even rank-and-file Republicans are for this, have to do is to pass first a permanant extension of the Bush tax cuts for the 98% of US-Americans earning below $250,000 a year. Pretty easy math here. Can Republicans do math? Look, Larry Elder, it is not the Taxman who is saying "bend over" (which is a pretty disgusting allusion, btw, not very christian, eh?), it is the Republican controlled House of Congress and if nothing happens before the sequester kicks in, then the GOP can simply hang it's hat on the wall for the next generation: it has already completely ruined itself with every form of minority in our great country and now it is screws the middle class...

Nice. Supporting tax increases- on somebody else. How about you pay more? Those at the top already pay the lion's share and then some; you do your "fair share". Somehow I believe your appetite for increased govt spending would falter if it meant you had to pay for it. I suppose the leftist definition of "shared sacrifice" means "I get to share in the spoils of someone else's sacrifice".

It's no less Christian than using the term 'tea-baggers' to describe conservatives. You do know what 'tea-bagging' is, right?

Liberals give each other a pass, but Alinsky said to play on the conscience of Christians to get your way with them. Even Obama can be found exploiting the guilt that can descend on a Christian, but it is only to try to steer the Christian and control.
Christians are sensitive to poverty, but are giving less because they have less. Thanks, Obama.

Polls show that 59% of Americans would blame both parties if no deal is reached. Obama may have bit off more than he can chew.

The most recent poll shows that only 19% will blame Obama.

President Barack Obama in 2008, and again during the 2012 election, promised absolutely, positively no tax hikes on the middle class. The rich, however, must pay more: "It's not me being stubborn, it's not me being partisan -- it's just a matter of math."

How does Obama intend to pay for our cradle-to-grave welfare state? Why, by charging the dastardly "millionaires and billionaires" who "can afford to pay a little bit more." No more extending the Bush-era tax rates for the rich. To do so, Obama tells us, would "cost" $700 billion -- over 10 years. So this "break"...
