Fiscal Cliff Charade: Dems and Republicans Both Seek Middle Class Tax Hike

Both parties are pretending to ask for different things when in reality both are looking to raise taxes on the only real source of income - the middle class. These are the people who actually work and create wealth.

The entire Plan A, Plan B, trying to make a deal in all an act to make us think they are doing something.

My prediction is the tax cuts will expire and both parties will blame the other for letting it happen.

some facts behind your post

Bob Murphy looked at the numbers. There is likely to be almost no cuts in spending with the so called cliff (my personal opinion is that cuts are a good thing, but just to counter their nonsense for a sec.. there are no cuts).

It's obvious that both are all about raising income or else more would be said about non-existent spending cuts.

Clear case of

the emperor (left right paradigm or Dems vs Reps) has no clothes... The real division is us vs them!

When Fascism goes to sleep, it checks under the bed for Ron Paul!

The Republicans are a fraud, they're showing their hand

I'm still thinking about that VAT they put in their platform after everyone adjorned in Tampa. A couple of things about that media that are similar: 1. The media sold Romney to the sheep against all logic - by using fear. 2. The media - is selling Boehner to the sheep against all logic. Like skilled salespeople they "handle objections" up front.

Yes. Alas.

" in reality both are looking to raise taxes on the only real source of income - the middle class. These are the people who actually work and create wealth.

Well, you got it exactly right, IMO.

Ahh... I'm so used to socialists. CROOKS. THIEVES. PARASITES. DEMAGOGUES. CRIMINALS. Rent-seeking LOSERS, yes, who CAN'T create ANYTHING but more unjust, perverted laws. They can justify ANYTHING out of their PLANS.

See The Broken Window Fallacy.

In my case, they can push MUCH HARDER before I feel ANYTHING. But I sincerely feel for the people less lucky than I have been. Luck and misfortune is part of our lives, though we create most of our good luck by ourselves.

FIGHT BACK. STACK ON what their debased currency's DISGUSTING hidden tax WON'T be able TO STEAL further from you.

Even the income tax is almost A JOKE compared to that one.

Yes, stack on REAL MONEY :

Even a little of it NOW will be a lot LATER, of your OWN, hard earned, PRESERVED wealth.

Good luck and God Bless.

I am above your law. Do what you have to do. I will leave you to the details. Your line-of-credit is waiting. Have Turbo Timmy G sign as my Federal Reserve witness. You get your agent, Rosie Rios, US Treasurer to sign. She is busy giving away paper-money now. She is your agent (Cash prizes!). She honors your commitment to pay the tab you are running. Mrs Rios has run it over over $16 trillion. I don't care what you make it. Give yourself plenty of running room. $20 trillion? $30 trillion? I is up to you.

What? ... What is that you say? ... Can't afford it? ... Nonsense. We at the Fed are still celebrating our 100 year anniversary. What makes you think you will not be approved for your extension? Your centennial line-of-credit? Golden anniversary? Don't be silly. Stop that rubbish about gold. ... Get down to the business of paying me in your blood, sweat & tears. [Click.]

Both Parties Seek "MAXIMUM" Middle Class Tax Hike

Change Title... Boehner didn't even propose an alternative.

.

Plan C

Do what Iceland did.

Dog and Pony show ...

... nothing more.

(I knew about the dog part when I saw Nancy Pelosi's face ... and I knew about the horse's ass part when I heard Boehner say, "The ayes have it.")

The posturing on this is just ridiculous

when there is so much wasteful, useless, foolish, and even tyrannical use of the money government spends. And neither the Demmicans or the Republocrats are willing to give up their pet statist projects.

Agreed, and I think....

I think maybe some of the public is waking up to this a bit. More and more Dems or Republicans I talk to about this fiscal cliff are becoming quite angry at their party over this nonsense.

Bump

Because both parties are controlled by the same people.
GOP and dems are as I call them 'Goldman Sachs parties'
