Higher Taxes on the Rich Mean Higher Taxes on the Rest of Us

We don't have a revenue problem we have a spending problem. We need to be like broken records, saying this over and over again, and electing public officials who will act on that belief by promise to implement that as a principle of sound fiscal management. After being elected Romney should call in all dept. heads and tell them"All hiring is immediately frozen and you have 60 days to present a budget that cuts all waste, duplication, and unnecessary services with a minimum overall cut of 20%. You will submit that budget with an honest appraisal of impact on services. I will review your proposal against your 2012 goals and will expect them to match up. If you don't think you can do this I will expect your resignation within seven days."

Robert, you're exactly right. The problem is spending. And there isn't much hope that our current Congress with suddenly see the light and change their ways.

I have been saying this for years. I send emails to my congressmen at least once a week (each). And it makes no difference if they are a dem or a GOP; once they get to DC you cannot tell them apart!?!? I will continue, you do the same, hopefully we can get others to join us!!!

Right on the money; it has taken me a few years to realize this. You elect a Republican, taxpayers get screwed by his buddies; you elect a Democrat, taxpayers get screwed by HIS buddies. It matters not whether you elect a Dem or Rep in Congress or the White House, taxpayers are going to get screwed, the only thing that changes is the group that steals from us.

President Obama repeatedly assures us that he only wants higher taxes on the rich as part of his class-warfare agenda.

But I don’t trust him. In part because he’s a politician, but also because there aren’t enough rich people to finance big government (not to mention that the rich easily can alter their financial affairs to avoid higher tax rates).

Honest leftists are beginning to admit that their real target is the middle class. Here are a few examples.
