    AFP: Top US Republican: Cut safety net, no tax hikes

    I guess that's it then. Obama will fold, and after that we'll do like London.

    We dont need more taxes, we need the economy to take off.

    Maybe you guys should release the next 500 regulations. That seems to be the only DNC answer.

    YEA!!!!! yet another no thought CUT N PASTE TOPIC

    Here, let me help you with the tedious work of using someone elses words to describe your own.....

    "On job creation, we need to reduce the regulatory burden, prevent tax hikes, and make it easier -- not harder -- for job creators to start hiring again," the senator said, with US unemployment at 9.1 percent.

    Cass Sunstein in a coma would be more effective that a tax hike.

    Raising taxes in this current economic disaster/landscape?!

    Doctor: Mr Smith, you have cirrhosis of the liver and just tested positive for hepatitis. I need to you to drink a six pack of Bud light every night and everything will be just fine.

    Patient: ......but

    Doctor: Now run along now.

    no... government care would want you healthy so you can work and pay your taxes... GOP care wants you to die so insurance companies make more money, your social security and Medicare Payments will get added to their coffers to spend on giving the wealthy more tax breaks and writing laws to let Wall Street fuck us again.

    If Democrats really thought that raising taxes was the answer then why didn't they take advantage of having had the House, Senate and Whitehouse for two years? There was NOTHING that Republicans could have done to effectively stop them. The fact that they were able to ram Obamacare through without any Republican support is proof of had the ability. They were just too chickenshit to raise taxes without Republican cover votes.
