    'Buffett Rule' Becomes A Bill, And Congress Bickers : NPR

    The GOP will not hear of this! Their wealthy supporters will shoot this down. Perhaps middle America will take notice this time. I know they the white and rich front running GOP candidate will turn thumbs down on this Bill.

    What a balanced piece of reporting..... not.

    NPR is LPR - Leftist Propaganda Radio.

    i don't see any way that the richest among us are gonna let any law pass that taxes them at the same rate as people who make less money. they have too much influence.

    but it's cool for me. i enjoy paying less percentage wise, on my capital gains, that you guys who work 9-5.

    That piece was anything but 'objective'.

    I bet you haven't even read the bill... one of Pelosi's minions 'pass the bill to see what's in it'.

    Do you ever actually read bills?

    I do.

    The question is.... Is it being introduced? :confused:

    Introducing the `Pay A Fair Share Act’ - The Plum Line - The Washington Post

    I guess we'll see if JimH and NPR are lying or telling the truth soon enough.

    Anyone with a brain will turn thumbs down on the bill. Apparently you believe that only white people have brains.

    I criticized the balance of the piece from NPR.... how exactly is that accusing them or Jim of 'lying'?

    Damn... it's no wonder this country is a clusterfuck... people seem unable to tell the difference between an honest, balance piece of coverage and a biased one... those who point that imbalance out are, apparently, liars.

    Fucking idiot.

    Why is it you applaud someone being taxed twice at a total of nearly 60%?

    Why on earth would an individual with money want to turn around and put it all at risk, just so the gov't can stick it to them again for investing money they have already been taxed for.

    This is a stupid move and will cause American businesses, that depend on investors, to have an even tougher time getting new investors.


    Plus... WTF does this have to do with race????
