The REAL problem is that congress - BOTH parties spend more than they take in. It's a drug to them and they're severely addicted. Do you REALLY think if they get more money they'll pay down the debt? They'll give 'spending cuts' if you raise taxes? How well did THAT work in the past? Heck, their idea of a spending 'cut' is REDUCING the rate of _increase_. Raising taxes just enables them to spend more. DON'T BE ENABLERS!!

Can the GOP really be this stupid? It appears many in the GOP Congress are suddenly willing to raise taxes. What utter fools. As Forest Gump's mother (played by Sally Field) said, "Stupid is, as stupid does." And this is world-class stupid.

If GOP politicians can't figure out any good arguments to oppose tax increases, I’ll give them a few.

First of all, Obama and the Democrats argue that the wealthy don't pay their "fair share." Really? The top 1% pay 40% of all the taxes. That's not "fair?" They also account, according to the New York...
