DOUBLE ALL TAX RATES and start taxing social security (regardless of additional income), medicare, medicaid, food stamps, Obamaphones, you name it. The country voted for a European-style welfare state. Fine. It’s time that it got European-style tax rates to pay for it. Eliminating the Bush tax rate cuts on the top 2% will raise about $80 billion per year. THAT’S IT. The “We can have all of this and get the ‘evil rich’ to pay for it” BS that Obama the Medicine Man sold to the country needs to be exposed for the cr@p that it is. Time to belly up to the bar and pay the tab. From now on, pay first, drink later. It’s time that EVERYONE put some skin in the game… including Peggy Joseph and the Obamaphone woman. If Americans want a big

Social security has been taxed since LBJ initiated his losing War on Poverty.

MO-You share my concern for not taxing the SS of those who have no other income. I pay taxes on my Military Retirement, My Federal Civil service retirement and the Maximum (I think 65% ) of my Social security. Not complaining, but I truly agree that some for of tax MUST be assessed on sole source income from SS.

government, make them pay for it. We’ll see just how big of a government they really want. I suspect that we will find that they want a much smaller government once they are on the hook for the taxes needed to support it. Right now, they believe that they can have a free lunch and stick the “evil rich” with the tab. Unfortunately for the clueless, there aren’t enough “evil rich” people to pay for the lunch to which the moochers believe they are entitled.

Lady I tried to get Illuminati to state who the "rich" are in actual income.
The answer was "my opinion doesn't matter".

Makes you wonder who she would trust to determine how much people are allowed to make.

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...
