    The Republicans should push for passage of Simpson, Bowles, It’s better than anything they’ll get from Obama on their own. Tax reform in there, it’s a descent plan. I say push Obama’s own debt commission plan right down his throat! :D

    Obama HIMSELF doesn't like Simpson/Bowles, why would it have ANY chance of passing?

    Simpson, if you remember actually praised Paul Ryan, a slight Obama may never forgive.

    Is this Obama's debt commission or not? Is it bipartisan or not? Put the pressure on Obama with it, to at least do something constructive

    It isn't Democrats in a panic over this.

    The fact of the matter is that any plan which will not raise taxes on people making more than $20,000 a month is not a good plan. The Republicans need to wrap their heads around that. 60% of the American electorate believes that since the rich have gained from the Reagan/Bushes administrations it's time they began to pay a fair share again:

    Do we want solutions here or politics? Raising tax rates for people making over $200,000 is not going to solve anything. Your stupid graphs don't mean shit, We need solutions not more petty bullshit from idiots
