    Paul Abrams: Congress's First Power Demolishes Tea Party's "Constitutional Principle"


    The Repugs have yet to explain how raising taxes is unconstitutional.

    Why raise taxes when all they do is waste and blow our money. Screw em. It's time for the government to do without.

    And why give tax cuts to the rich who don 't create jobs? Its not like you Repugs are giving Americans hope that tax cuts for the rich will do anything. Any way, the point is that Congress has the power to raise taxes and create taxes, something that Repugs deny and accuse the government of being gangsters. How can somebody be a fucking gangster when they're doing something constitutional and legal? Shithead!

    They all just want a free ride on somebody elses paycheck. Some people look at the Constitution and all they see is free for me.

    We give tax cuts to the poor so in all fairness we should give tax cuts to the rich, unless of course you are a bigot which you clearly are. Thanks. In Advance. :lol:

    Wouldn't that mean that the tax has to be a flat tax?

    Why should someone who worked hard to become rich and successful have to pay more taxes than a lazy leech like you ?......

    Still love how the entitlement junky, wealth redistribution wacko left wingers ALWAYS love to only go off a portion of article 1 section 8... they always leave off the words after 'general welfare', because it changes the whole meaning when taken in context of the union and not individuals
