    How'd those four get assigned to that committee in the first place?

    Look, taxes should be raised. At least to where they were before the so-called Bush cuts. Dems should also be offering up meaningful spending cuts and stop giving away the farm to unaccountable charlitans, frauds, and perfectly employable individuals.

    I understand that "wealth" can be a relative term but it seems the rich as well as the poor have no concept of the true meaning of wealth.

    Why is Boner afraid of four conservative voices?

    Raising taxes will do nothing but compound the problem.

    I never liked Boner. I don't like grown men who cry like he did on National TV.

    Why on Earth should taxes go up?

    Things cost more than they used to.

    If we adjusted federal spending for inflation we would be since 2005 we would be spending roughly $2.3 trillion right now. Coincidentally, tax revenues right now are just about $2.3 trillion.

    Exactly how much more does everything cost?

    Actually Boehner is a fairly competent politician, who might have been a very good Speaker had it not been for the TPM nitwits.

    By his nature Boehner is a pragmatist, he wants to put country first and do what’s best for America; but the TPM and radical right are forcing him to put party first.

    Sad, really.

    You can adjust current figures for historical inflation 'till the cows come home. Things cost more by exactly how much they cost today. In current dollars.
