    What nonsense. How about a procedural vote on a budget? Oh, that's right. Reid says it's not time.

    I think that number is a little low.
    I think it's 97% - 98%

    Also a poll that will be released soon shows that 99% of the American people want to work for nothing with all money earned be turned of to the Democrat Party to spend as they see fit.

    From your own link, fumblehead:


    The bill would raise $46.7 billion over the next ten years, according to the nonpartisan staff of the Joint Committee on Taxation, so it would in itself do little to reduce the long-term mismatch between revenues and spending

    Nobody wants Buffett to pass. Not Obama. Not the Dems or Buffett himself. It is just another rallying cry for the uninformed.

    Would you support it if 70% of voters wanted to raise taxes on the middle class?
