Baloney. %15 flat tax on EVERYONE's income, capital gains and corporations. Ofcourse the lobby against that is HUGE so it will never happen. But if it did the revenue would be incredible. Also, Not having a budget should be a law that is PUNISHABLE, by jail time, for congress and the senate!.

One bright spot of Barack Obama's re-election was knowing that unemployment rates were about to soar for the precise groups that voted for him -- young people, unskilled workers and single women with degrees in gender studies. But now the Democrats are sullying my silver lining by forcing Republicans to block an utterly pointless tax-raising scheme in order to blame the coming economic Armageddon on them.

Democrats are proposing to reinstate the Bush tax cuts for everyone ... except "the rich." (Why do only tax cuts come with an expiration date? Why not tax increases? Why not...
