Buffet Tax, Just a Gimmick says Obama.


quote:

“There are others who are saying: ‘Well, this is just a gimmick. Just taxing millionaires and billionaires, just imposing the Buffett Rule, won’t do enough to close the deficit,’ ” Obama declared Wednesday. “Well, I agree.


Where you at libs of the poliboard who have espoused this tax as some "plan" of righteousness? Where are you now?

Frankly, I can't believe this "buffett rule" has gained this much momentum, considering it is based off a huge lie. I have asked hundreds of times, yet I have not been shown a graph or an article that proves millionaires pay a lower rate.

The liberal-speak I've heard is not that their rate is lower than everyone else's, but that it's too low in general. Obama wants them to pay a minimum of 30 percent if they make a million or more a year.

I'm not so good at math, but I'm not so sure bumping them from 28 to 30 would help much anyway...plus 10 percent of their earnings is way more than 10 percent of mine as it is.

Of course it's a gimmick. Buffett doesn't even pay his own taxes.

We all know this...I just want some the moron libs from this board who defended the Buffet tax to read what their messiah thinks.

This is the most direct, honest, and to the point that he's been in quite some time.

Taxing them at 100% won't help until its agreed that we have a spending problem and not a revenue problem.

Obama argued that his plan to make sure that those earning north of $1 million a year don’t pay a lower tax rate than average Americans


This is where the LIE is. People who are EARNING $1 million a year are paying the top marginal tax rate on those EARNINGS.

But, when they cash in a billion in capital gains, i.e., not EARNINGS, the overall effective rate goes down because it's just those capital gains that are being taxed at a favorable rate. But, the last penny of their EARNINGS were still taxed at 35%.

I agree too. What's the problem?

Is the GOP this desperate? It must be worse inside the bubble than I thought.

Good luck!

I suggest that he agrees that it won't solve the deficit, alone.

He is not agreeing with others who call it a gimmick.

Question for all of you. Can you guys figure out things without Hannity and Beck? Seriously.

The problem is liberal policies that take no interest in cutting spending.

Why is this always a liberal comeback? It is frankly not true and is a sign of desperation, since you cannot argue using any tangible evidence.

Don't watch TV. Especially not news on TV. There's a reason they call it the idiot box DA.

So then why (since this "rule" has almost no impact on debt/deficit reduction) is Obama pushing for it so publicly?

I don't think anyone (legitimately) has said that either spending reductions or tax increases alone will address the deficit/debt issue.

A balanced approach. He's said so a million times.

Here's what I think. He will go to the nation and submit a plan that addresses the deficit. But he has to ensue that the nation feels it's a fair plan.

The last plan had the taxpayer bail out Wall Street and sent the bill to the government. Yet, it's the same 99% that must now pay the debt, too?

Won't work this time.
