    Senate Democrats Draft Debt-Reduction Plan


    By Lori Montgomery, Published: July 8

    Senate Democrats have drafted a sweeping debt-reduction plan that would slice $4 trillion from projected borrowing over the next decade without touching the expensive health and retirement programs targeted by President Obama.

    Instead, Senate Democrats are proposing to stabilize borrowing through sharp cuts at the Pentagon and other government agencies, as well as $2 trillion in new taxes, primarily on families earning more than $1 million year, according to a copy of the plan obtained by The Washington Post.

    Wrong... taxes are high enough already, and have been for years. More taxes will only crush the delicate state of the economy further into the toilet.

    What part about that are you liberals incapable of understanding?

    The part where you said taxes are high enough and have been for years. That doesn't make sense since taxes are at their lowest levels in 60 years.

    You must have been reading something else. There's nothing "shared" about this plan. He's not advocating make deep cuts into o-care, ss, or any social programs. The dems entire focus is taxation. Tell me when we start cutting ALL social programs, depts, agencies, AND the military by 30 percent and I'll start paying attention.

    For people who don't even pay taxes.

    The dems just want to keep bleeding the rich for more and more and more.

    How about EVERYONE, straight across the board, pay 13% taxes?

    The answer isn't 'higher taxes' any more than the answer was 'lower taxes'.

    The answer is fair taxes.

    Simple = fair. The time to demand a ground-up rebuild of the tax code is now.

    Yes, I did. Did you? 350B for social programs, 900B for military, no deep cuts into departmental agencies, just high taxation.
