What's wrong with the Cinton tax rates, I say let the rates go back up for everyone. If we want a government that does everything then we have to pay. The Repubs spent like drunken sailors in the past decade and they gave gave us Bush on steroids aka Obama. If we don't raise revenues by having the lower income folks chip for the folks in DC to run their lives then we are really irresponsible.

Bush spent too much, of course, but comparatively, he was a miser. Obama knows no limit- he would spend 2T over our revenue as long as he could buy votes. He is not only a lousy leader, good only at campaigning, but he is irresponsible with the public purse, and takes care of his friends - crony capitalists and unions - while driving us off the precipice from which we can never recover. Clinton tax rates are fine, if you also give us the Clinton budget, Clinton's wars, and Clinton's economy (which, of course, was Gingrich's economy). I am so tired of reading stupid clap trap from stupid people who haven't a clue what they are talking about. These are the people who elect Democrats, who want us, quite simply, to be Greece.

When you lose an election, you get frustrated. When you're sitting in a subpar 2 percent economy, and are faced with tax hikes rather than marginal rate reductions, you get even more frustrated. And when you're staring at $47 trillion in spending over the next 10 years, and $8.6 trillion in deficits, your frustration levels climb even higher.

These are among the frustrations that led a number of House Republicans to pull back from Speaker John Boehner's so-called Plan B. Nobody looked good on the Republican side when Thursday night's vote fell through. But you have to understand their frustrations....
