Tax benefits - they are income, before you increase taxes on people already paying more than their fair share and paying taxes on income used to buy those same benefits they also need! What does the word 'fair' really mean to Obama? Redistribute the wealth!

obama and the rest of his crew such as the stars and warren buffett say they should pay more taxes. What in the hell is stopping them. Come on people shut up and put up. You have always hired tax attorneys and accountants to get you out of paying high taxes now hire them to do the opposit

I also want to mention that John Kerry who has been nominated to take Hillary's place should be an excellent choice. I can't figure out how he got reelected, he was docking his Yahct in another place to avoid the higher taxes in his own town. He has turned his back on the people who served in Vietnam and other things too numerous to mention.
But doesn't he look young? Plastic surgery has been very good to him. Will the government offer that service free to all of us older people under obama care for free? We will soon have forgotten about that word" free".

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....
