    John McCain: 'Democrats Are Winning' Debate Over Tax Cuts




    Sadly the Republican will ignore the majority of Americans on this issue, I can't see the majority of Americans agreeing with the Repugs protecting the rich by refusing to raise taxes on them while wanting to give them taxcuts. This will blow up in their faces. The majority of people support helping the fucking rich, these shitheads are so far out of touch and refuse to see it.

    Personally, I am not in favor of extending the payroll tax cut. I just don't believe we can afford it. However, the idea that we should not raise taxes on the wealthy, that is another story.

    It could stimulate demand since people who earn less are more inclined to spend their money on necessities. Plus its a regressive tax that affects them much more than the rich.

    You know, you really have to hand it to McCain. He is a man of integrity. I put this up there with his humble concession speech in 2008.

    McCain is a neo-con RINO in which I supported back in 08 only because Obama did exactly what I said he was going to do back in 08...

    The truth is democrats WANT government dependent because they're communists..

    Neo-Con RINOS WANT government dependents because they're theocratic nuts..

    Conservative Libertarians believe in INDIVIDUALISM and COMPETITION... If a person wants to live in a welfare state and pay socialist structure taxes then go right ahead - your right to do such, However if someone doesn't believe in those ideas they can move to a state that caters to their ideas..

    That's why we have a Tenth Amendment - to give people choices..

    The federal government acts like they run everything and the Tenth Amendment is a novelty...

    We shouldn't have to tax because some states are welfare states and others are healthy.... Several states refused stimulus funds - they didn't need them, want them or felt it would be appropriate for them to take those funds...

    Fuck Illinois taxes and regulations are so high they actually have to massively cut taxes (er pay businesses) to keep these businesses from walking away with their jobs.... Meanwhile smaller businesses that employ anything less than 700 workers don't get that luxury... However republicans didn't legislate those regulations and taxes ... The assholes that did now want more from those that employ 700 or less and they're the ones who get fucked....

    LOL, I would bet the lefties don't even know what this payroll tax cut is about.

    All that matters is the Obama is proposing it so IT MUST BE GREAT.

    But Bush tax cuts....................................EVIL evil evil

    As for McCain, nothing knew him coming to the Obama's rescue and putting down his own party. He's a backstabber from the highest order

    Pyroll tax cuts offer an immediate bump to the demand side.

    Bush II's tax cuts for billionaires (a supply side policy) basically did little more than cause investment INFLATION.

    A couple of Congressional Drones were on CNN this morning talking about a tax cut funded by a "surtax on millionaires". One a Dem the other a Repub so they touted it as "bipartisan leadership"

    One drone actually said "There are parts of her idea I don't like, and there are parts of my ideas she doesn't like but we're working together!" like that's something great. Both Parties are working together to fuck us all.

    If Capt. Queeg (McCain) had a brain that worked, he'd know that we've been having this discussion for a while now. Confiscating wealth doesn't solve problems. Gov't has a spending problem not a revenue problem.

    Too many people fall for that "bipartisan", feel good, "let's all get along" bullshit.

    And you would be wrong. I do oppose the payroll tax cut (or any tax cuts) until we tackle our deficit.

    As for Bush's TEMPORARY tax cuts: They have been extended too long. They should have expired when they were set to expire.
