    The budget deal passed by the U.S. Senate today would raise taxes on 77.1 percent of U.S. households, mostly because of the expiration of a payroll tax cut, according to preliminary estimates from the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center in Washington.

    More than 80 percent of households with incomes between $50,000 and $200,000 would pay higher taxes. Among the households facing higher taxes, the average increase would be $1,635, the policy center said

    May I be the very first to say I told you so.

    What part of "its either taxes or borrowed" don't you understand??? Thats why I like the cliff & sequestration, and/or Simpson-Bowles, and/or "the one cent solution".

    I am certain your question makes sense to you, but to me...not so much.

    Your OP and most of the pols I see on TV today whine about raising taxes, like when the "fiscal cliff" happens. What they seem to forget is that we must pay for the spending, either thru taxes, or by borrowing. IMHO paying via taxes is preferred, since they then understand that we have limited resources.

    Spending needs to be cut....that is a concept beyond anyone on the Left....oh yes, and your President stressed that ONLY the Wealthiest 2% would have to pay more.

    But see, Bmmy lies every time he opens his mouth ;)

    The Senate bill doesn't increase the payroll tax.

    Pointing out an obvious fact to someone who can't grasp the obvious is not an exercise in semantics.

    How about we don't spend more than we take in?
