    HuffPo? Really?
    I thought you were leaving this site.

    Anyway, I thought Obama was all about saving Medicare and here he is this AM proposing 1.5T in cuts to it.

    The middle class doesn't pay their fair share in taxes - so I agree with Ryan and Cain. Increase the taxes on those who pay the least. It's only fair.

    From your Link.

    "You already have a $1.5 trillion tax increase coming in 2013," he said, referring to the expiration of the Bush tax cuts that were extended by President Obama for two years. Ryan's reference to the expiration as an "increase" gives greater weight to his willingness to let tax cuts for the middle class expire.

    Because of the looming Bush tax cut expiration, said Ryan, the super committee should eschew tax hikes. "Why on earth would we go with that, especially when the problem is spending?" he said.

    "You're basically saying there's going to be no bargain, no compromise," host Chris Wallace pointed out.

    "Clearly, Democrats could work with us" and get $1.5 trillion in spending cuts with no additional revenue, Ryan said. "That shouldn't be that tough."

    Taxing the rich isn't going to give as much revenue as taxing the middle class. There just aren't enough of the wealthy.

    Of course taxing the rich will make some folks happy. After all, even though they pay the lions share of Fed taxes, the rich will never pay enough in some folks eyes. Its that class warefare thingy.

    Of course those folks are all for tax hikes as long as the tax hikes don't affect them.

    "Time for an invervention, Obama’s on a tax hike bender

    Posted by William A. Jacobson Sunday, September 18, 2011 at 10:31pm

    Five days ago Obama unveiled a “jobs plan” which included tax hikes of $467 billion, $400 billion of which were on individuals making $200,000 (and couples making $250,000).

    Tomorrow Obama will unveil a “deficit reduction plan” which will include $1.5 trillion in new taxes including an extra tax on people making $1 million or more.

    In 6 days, Obama will have proposed over $2 trillion (that trillion with a ”t”) in new taxes, above and beyond what we already pay.

    The big spender is on a tax hike bender.

    We need an intervention of historic proportions.

    It’s no longer Republicans versus Democrats, or Progressives versus Tea Partiers...."

    Raising taxes during this sucky economy will have no negative effects?? Guess thats Barry's POV.

    Guess that falls under the "Unintended Consequences" category.
