Dems want 1T more in Taxes this year


quote:

Democrats say they want to raise as much as $1 trillion in new revenues through tax reform later this year to balance Republican demands to slash mandatory spending.
Democratic leaders have had little time to craft a new position for their party since passing a tax deal Tuesday that will raise $620 billion in revenue over the next ten years.
The emerging consensus, however, is that the next installment of deficit reduction should reach $2 trillion and about half of it should come from higher taxes.

This is the new dem talking point VOR and VB and all of the NYer's and Jersey liberals are getting right now from media matters dot com.

It is cool to raise the debt ceiling to infinity but they will call it raising taxes.Obama has so ordered it shall be done.

Good luck with that... Obama is already taking the blame on the SS tax increase (as he should)...

and that is the main problem with trusting Democrats...you can't.

They wonder why we fight against raising taxes when they promise to cut spending - they won't do it. Lying is bred into them....can't change that.

Article is pretty misleading considering they're talking about over a 10 year period

100 billion in revenue a year doesn't sound as exciting though I suppose

The sad thing is it is not just dems talking points it is the media's directive from Obama. They think if they say it out loud so many times and get liberals to post how cool it is on TD's. That by the time they raise the debt ceiling to infinity no one will be shocked and will conform.

Every number that has been thrown out in any of these negotiations has been over a 10yr period... So why would this be any different?

If it were earmarked strictly for debt reduction and there were entitlement cuts that would equal or be greater than that $1T number, I could be for it.

We know that will not happen though.

Obama is the most effective president in history IMO at getting his agenda accomplished.

Proof that "fair share" has not true upper bound. For democrats "fair share" = more, no matter how much they are taking.

This is true. Sadly his agenda sucks though.
