Republicans Send White House Fresh Offer on Fiscal Cliff - NationalJournal.com

     The GOP has put forth an offer on taxes and spending cuts and the White House is sure to reject it.
      What I want are tax rates without expiration dates or automatic reversions.  Just set 'em at some level.  If it's 38% for money over 500K, that's fine with me and those making that know how to contain their tax liability so all the talk of picking on them is BS.
      I'd like some limits on exemptions and cuts to entitlements..Oh and the FICA.....
      If you were unscrupulous you'd raise the employer side to 8.2 and leave the employee side at 4.2%.....That way you get the money for DC and still claim to help the middle class while making rich business owners pay....
     Just let me know if that's the plan so I can cancel pay raises for 2013.

Come on Mayor! You are repeating the talking points of the 47% that know how to pay ZERO taxes...they vote democrat.
You know everything...so please explain to us how people making that much "contain their tax liability"?

The answer is that they can't. They have to pay what they owe. there is no tax haven and no other tax tricks for them.

Most people making that kind of money do it one time or for only a few prolific hardworking years. Like your friend Mance. He paid capital gains and pocketed the rest. And now he wants to raise taxes on everyone else to make sure no one joins his club of rich people. But he wants to make sure his wife and Danny pay zero taxes to NYS for their pension income.

Who is the leader of the Republican Party anyways?

“Who is the leader of the Republican Party anyways?”

Good question…

The Republican Party has been rudderless for years. Unless, of course, you consider the likes of their corporate owners such as the Koch brothers, and the far right lunatic fringe element and demagogues, such as Limbaugh, Beck and Hannity -- who generally dictate policy on behalf of corporate interests.

So, in a manner of speaking I guess you could call them the Republican Party’s “de-facto” leaders – in that they exercise power without being legally or officially established.

The Elephants are rudderless. Mostly because MSM has done their job in taking out the primary people who speak for them. Just doing their job. That gets them access to the Great One's yuk yuk sessions. How is that investigation into the Libya murders going? The pressure for info is unreal.

What stupid, mindless pablum, 10:34. You forgot to use the words neocon, right wing, zealot, extremest, hateful, racist, and greedy. Did you not read your script? Extremely dumb. Then you have to get into names, such as Dick Cheney, Reagan, Rand, Bush etc... The Liar In Chief loves dolts like you.

What about the 15% tax on long term (one year) capital gains? That's how the VERY wealthy keep their taxes down. I.E.: Mitt Romney made $20 million last year while running for President, but paid a tax rate of less than 15% (with deductions).

I agree completely with 10:34. The majority of those who call themselves "true conservatives" in the Republican Party are nothing more than right wing radicals. The Republican Party has to align itself with the religious right, and other assorted kooks, or there would be no one left to make up the Republican base.

If the comments by the pseudo conservatives in this thread are any indication, the GOP is just heading further and further into the wilderness. Still crying "Socialism" and reverse-racism. They aren't even able to face how very wrong they were about everything during the election and how lost they have become.

With the unemployment rate at above 8% until just before the election and more than half of the nation believing the nation was on the wrong track, the electorate still rejected the GOP and its candidate, Mitt Romney, who was arguably the most moderate of all the Republican candidates in this cycle.

When a party can't win under the circumstances that existed prior to November 6th, it is on the road to extinction.

Silly goose… that’s like asking who the leader of the Whig Party is.

The republican party doesn't have a leader anymore than the democratic party has a leader. Look at what is going on at our state level with the "takers" as we speak!

The republican party is made up of the "makers" and the democratic party is made up of the "takers". A hole bunch of factions fit under the republican tent. The same goes for the Democrat tent.

The democrats used a long list of strategy to eek out their 6 4 million vote win over Romney's 61 million vote loss. Even Clinton had to step in and save Obama's a$$ at one point.

But The campaign was long and hard fought by late night television, the MSN and Hollywood. And Obama and the democrats even had to help out some too. But eventually they figured out they should just shut up and let the media paint Mitt as a monster. Because ever time they opened their mouths they lost votes.
