    Be proud of what you did. You taught the GOP that you don't want low taxes. You don't care if the Democrats raise your taxes and spend it faster than they can steal it from you. So I figure they're out to give you what you wanted.

    How does it feel to teach those Republicans a lesson?

    Democrats want to raise taxes to match their spending. The only way that will work is if they raise them on all of us. If the Republicans give in and allow Obama to raise taxes on the rich then nothing is solved. The problem remains. But if they stick to their principles and just let us all have it when the Bush tax-cuts expire, everyone get's some skin in the game.

    Then we can all invest in strengthening the Middle-class, Obama style.

    If you really think the GOP is going to be stupid enough to raise taxes on the middle class because the rich will be finally paying their fair share, you're delusional.

    The top 10% have 90% of the wealth. I find it hard to believe that raising taxes on them won't solve our problems.

    When the rich paid their fair share, we had balanced budgets.

    It wont solve any problems. 800 billion over 10 years? :lmao:

    We haven't had a balanced budget for decades. Borrowing money to create a surplus doesn't count either.

    Oh, so the GOP is our saviors now.

    I don't think they have much of a choice in the matter.

    The tax-cuts expire Jan 1.

    I don't see Obama or the Democrats bringing a plan to the table....so they want the GOP to do everything.

    And if the GOP doesn't have a partner in this nothing gets done and the rates go up automatically.

    I figure the GOP could just adjourn and go home and let the Democrats deal with the mess they made in Washington. If they give in they're screwed. So I guess the best thing to do is learn their lesson and let em go up on everyone and see what happens.

    Please give a precise definintion of "fair share" so we can all know how much people are supposed to pay in taxes. Please also tell me how in particular taxatrion is about "fairness" and not about funding the government.

    Also please explain how a feel good 80 billion dollar per year increase in revenue (projected) will help erase a 1,000 billion per year decfict (pretty much a given)
