    Leading House GOP figure's compromise plan gets shot down - CNN.com

    Yup, the won't be happy until they are the minority party in all three branches of government...sad but true.

    The majority of Americans support higher taxeson the wealthy. Now they are showing everyone who they are in DC to support...the wealthy

    We'll see how much longer the absolutist hardliners control the party.

    Small business owners make up one half of the top two percent? How does Boehner qualify small business?

    When the Income Tax was implemented it WAS only on the Top 1% of wage earners. Now Gov't has grown so large that everyone must suffer under Confiscatory Tax Policy.

    Also, did you know that the Income Tax only goes to paying the INTEREST on the National debt? The Interest is charged by the Privately Owned Federal Reserve who LOANS the Gov't money to operate every year.

    If the Congress were to take back that power, which is mandated by the Constitution and Congress has "Outsourced" to the Fed, we'd have no Income Tax. No one would have to pay it.

    My Income Tax withholding on my last check was about 30% so almost 1/3 of my check went to paying the Banksters to loan money to the US Gov't. Again, that's only the Interest on the loan not the Principle.

    How f*cked up is THAT?

    They don't care. Their party winning is far more important than what's best for the country and I doubt they understand what you're talking about anyway.

    Do you think they care? It's about the class warfare and sticking it to the producers.

    Once again I'll say it for you hard of hearing folks in the cheap seats.

    IT DOESN'T ACCOMPLISH A THING!!

    $80 billion a year barely pays the INTEREST on the annual DEFICIT, let alone reduce the DEBT!

    If they were serious they would stick to the sequester and raise everyone's taxes back up. But, it's about the class envy.

    The only thing 'they' are serious about is dividing this nation even further than it already is.

    "Divide and Conquer"

    It's a damned shame there are so many that yearn for subjugation...
