    I remember the 1993 debate about tax hikes and all the scare tactics used by the GOP. IMHO it turned out to be total bullshit, thanks in part to Newt's spending cuts as well as the tax hikes.
    Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1993 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Here we are again, in 2011 and we're hearing the same tax hike hype by the GOP.

    This is a very simple poll. If the vote was put to a referendum, whose plan would you vote for, the GOP plan to cut taxes for those making over $250k and cut entitlements, or the dems plan to get $3 in spending cuts for every $1 in tax increases?

    first rule of opinion/market research is not to bias the question, which you've already done

    The only reference we need is The Wall Street Journal.....back when it contained....

    (....Back, before it turned-into one more Murdoch-tabloid.)​

    take out "for the rest of us", you can't write a political poll that refers to yourself or a group you belong to, also replace "the rich" with "those making over $250,000" - you need to eliminate any possible misinterpretation and replace it with a hard fact

    Why not decrease the expenditures of the federal government? We all know that after they're given more money that they'll just grow more. It's time that our federal government realize the hard times and do without all the goodies....just like all of us have been doing the last four years now.

    Cut spending, cut more spending, then go back and cut some more...

    ...then, once we've cut all we can, we'll start talking about raising taxes.

    If we don't cut spending first, the cutting never happens...they just kick the can down the road.

    Ignorant lefties are all over the map with their propaganda about taxes. Maybe if they learned something instead of posting Soros and Huffington posts they would be better off. Were you radical lefties in a coma when Obama signed a two year extention on the Bush tax cuts? Why would he do that? They work?

    This exactly.

    There is no reason to believe that any amount of tax hikes will solve our problem. Because I could almost guarantee that for every extra $1 they get in taxes, they'll spend an extra $1.10 on some new bullshit. We must cut spending first. It's just like the immigration debate. If you don't secure the border first then no amount of comprehensive immigration reform will solve our problem.
