Thread: Another Leftist Admits the Real Goal Is Taxing the Middle Class

  1. Default Another Leftist Admits the Real Goal Is Taxing the Middle Class

    Another Leftist Admits the Real Goal Is Taxing the Middle Class

    Obama has staked out a very dogmatic and inflexible position on class-warfare tax hikes and he obviously wants all of us to think only the ďrichĒ will be impacted.

    I think itís foolish to penalize investors, entrepreneurs, small business owners and other upper-income taxpayers. What nation, after all, has ever prospered by placing obstacles in front of those who create jobs? France? Donít make me laugh.

    But Iím also amazed that anyone believes Obama isnít going to screw the middle class as well. The simple reality is that there arenít enough rich people to finance big government.

    There are some honest folks on the left who admit that they want ordinary people on the chopping block.

    The New York Times endorsed higher taxes on the middle class in 2010.
    The then-House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer also gave a green light that year to higher taxes on the middle class.
    Earlier this year, MIT professor and former IMF official Simon Johnson argued that the middle class should pay more tax.
    The Washington Post also called for higher taxes on the middle class this year, as did Vice President Joe Bidenís former economist.
    A New York Times columnist also called for broad-based tax hikes on the middle class this year.

    Now we can add another honest statist to the list. I debated some guy from a left-wing think tank and he wants Obama to push all of us off the fiscal cliff.

    With their infernal racial set-asides, racial quotas, and race norming, liberals share many of the Klan's premises. The Klan sees the world in terms of race and ethnicity. So do liberals! Indeed, liberals and white supremacists are the only people left in America who are neurotically obsessed with race. Conservatives champion a color-blind society. -- Ann Coulter

    The simple reality is that there aren’t enough rich people to finance big government.

    Anyone with 2 brain cells knows that "taxing the rich" or the "1%" will simply never be enough to finance the absolute mess we want to keep afloat. Even if you killed them all and took every last cent the 1% had...you'd never come close. Someone posted a great video here the other day that broke this all down and showed on a calendar just how long you could go by taking weath from various groups. It was pretty staggering to see just how much money from all kinds of groups you would ahve to take to keep afloat for one calendar year.

    I think the 1% bought them a month or two.

    If congress is too afraid to raise taxes on the middle class, they are just going to let the gov't spending crush the economy. Then, they will not let a crisis go to waste. They want a crisis, so bad that people call for a dictator as the Romans use to do during their republic. Then, our dictator will step in. Who are they considering for the job? Who will stand up to him, when he orders the redistribution of wealth?

    Well yeah. Taxing the rich only garners tens to maybe, if you really seriously kick their asses, a hundred billion extra dollars in revenues. That doesn't even begin to touch upon the trillion plus dollar deficits we're racking up each year. Everyone, even our non-tax paying friends, are going to pay more for just about everything. Businesses will pay - consumers will pay - all strata of tax payers WILL PAY. And we should. If we elect politicians based on what government can do for us, than we better be willing to pay for all those wondrous "benefits". Otherwise, stop electing people that have this pathological love of all-things-government!

    A typical middle-income family making $40,000 to $64,000 a year could see its taxes go up by $2,000 next year if lawmakers fail to renew a lengthy roster of tax cuts set to expire at the end of the year, according to a new report Monday.

    Taxpayers across the income spectrum would be hit with large tax hikes, the Tax Policy Center said in its study, with households in the top 1 percent income range seeing an average tax increase of more than $120,000, while a family making between $110,000 to $140,000 could see a tax hike in the $6,000 range.


    Taxpayers across the income spectrum will get slammed with increases totaling more than $500 billion ó a more than 20 percent increase ó with nine out of 10 households being affected by the expiration of tax cuts enacted under both President Barack Obama and his predecessor, George W. Bush.

    Hey man, I almost strangled on my coffee. Jesus, there should be rules in here to protect us from these statements.

    BH Obama is locked in for four more years so I don't know why he doesn't just drop the hammer on the fools that elected him. It may be that he wants to damage the economy by taking money out of the capital investment sector before he will crush the middle class . To really hurt American like he wants to he will have to ham string the middle class more than he already has. Build more debt before he hits us with higher taxes or he may fear the midterm elections in 2014 and feel that he has to go for the kill now.

    BH Obama has asked for a national security force more powerful than the military and that will cost more than the rich have on hand. Printing more money at this point isn't a good idea so he may tax the middle class now and all he has to do is cross his arms and blame it all of the Republicans.

    Please, no more talk about cutting spending..
    Obama is using Cloward-Piven tactics by allowing these aliens in and then transporting these illegal aliens to different cities and letting them loose. The numbers given by ICE about the rise in alien returns has been false. Unless we put our military on the border and build the fence that Obama has refused to build, violating Congressional law. ..

    You guys actually expect Obama voters to be capable of basic arithmetic and knowledge of American history?

    It's not about the math.

    It's about "fairness"

    Every person working who has income tax taken out of their pay check, (which includes those making minimum wage by the way) should go back and learn the history of how it too was sold to the uneducated Americans as only targeting the "Rich"

    it was the same pitch

    Was there ever any doubt that this is what Obama and the Democrats really want? Their neo-Jacobin class warfare "tax the rich!" antics are just a fig leaf.

    When our taxes go up, thank Obama, the Democrats and the people who voted for them...
