obama rejects republican deal on fiscal cliff

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
Says he will not approve any deal without higher taxes on 250k or higher earners. Repubs say they wont raise taxes on anyone.



If this thing is not fixed. Taxes raise. Social security amounts taken out the check raises. And many other things will be effected: headstart,foodstamps. Going over the fiscal cliff has the potential to put us in a horrible recession.



Agreement and compromise. I don't know why this is so hard for them.

When will all these morons realize that a flat tax is the answer? Oh and legalize marijuana if you want to close the gap.

 I know one thing, the 30,000 page tax code sure as HELL is not working out for us. However, it does not matter how much you bring in. If the idiots on the Hill spend it faster than it comes it, revenue will not mean a rats behind. Until SPENDING is under control, nothing will improve. You would think the morons on the Hill would have learned that in basic economics as freshman in high school, but you know.. I guess once you get sworn in, your brain becomes mush. :/

Exactly. The repubs plan about loopholes and reducing special interest payments wasn't that bad of a start and is exactly what Obama wanted the repubs to do last year.

I don't get help either, that 100$ would go far when your buying formula and diapers on your own. I think alot of industries need to pick up again like mining, which would put alot of people back to work. Which in turn they would need help..

Do you even understand the fiscal cliff? Most people still rely on that nearly 100 dollars a month. You know rising utility, food and gas prices.





This will put us back into a recession. even those in Congress and the president admit to how they need to keep us from going over.



Idk about you but idk many people who use 100 of their paychecks to buy TVs.

And the rest of your rant made no sense.and I don't know why you're saying you. I don't get foodstamps or Eic.







Quoting Anonymous:

So what, instead of running out getting a new game or big screen tv you'll have to learn to live within your means. It will just come out of your EIC at the end of the yr. We need this, it is the only way to get our country back, but I guess you'd rather place this burden on the future. As for the bum hippy, anti govt elderly, instead of burning flags, throwing poop at troops and living on woodstock, they should've been contributing to the country in jobs. They will pull more than they ever placed into the system. Retirement age should be extended on them immediately, up to 85 yrs old. They are far from the great generation, they are the worst generation.



Quoting Anonymous:

This wont just affect those on foodstamps.







Your taxes will go up. Almost 100 more a month gone. 100 more a month you're use to.



The elderly who depend on Medicare. Well Medicare will see cuts so that affects them







This effects everyone.







Quoting Anonymous:

People need to stop believing everything they read and learn to stand on their own two feet. The prices changed that much and no one needs 10k + on tax rebates and 1200 in monthly fs, I feed 6 on 300 a month, and live fine off 35k a yr.







Quoting Anonymous:

Well then everything Americans have to buy need to revert back to 90s prices. Economists have said it will put us in a recession.











Quoting Anonymous:

So what, the suggestion of going back to the 1990's spending and taxes across the board won't kill the US. Maybe we will prosper again as we did during the 90's. But so many can't give up their hand outs.

Lmao they must be put through a scanner that melts their brains when being sworn in. 

Its simple math duhhh (to them not you)

we need serious welfare reform and education reform. We spend way too much on both. Welfare needs to go back to waiting on line for cheese. Necessities only. We spend a crap load on education yet our kids have nothing to show for it. Dh does networking for the local school districts. Every school he has been in has closets and closets of equipment that has never been used not do they plan on using it. Each district is given a certain amount of money. If the don't use it all then the state cuts them by that much the following year. Soooo every district will go on a spending spree at the end of the year and buy whatever they can just to spend the money.

Apparently I can manage just fine on 35k a year for a family of 6, if you will go bankrupt on an extra 100 a month of make believe money you never see until the end of the year in the first place then you( general ) would need to learn to budget. Of course Congress and the President are using scare tactics, they want to make the other party look bad for 2014 mid term elections. Instead of campaigning and taking Christmas off they should be there working for their 200k year salary to get something passed, and taxing the rich we have done that before and are still in the same problem, OVER SPENDING. If we tax the rich they WILL move overseas, then where is that extra money they are counting on? That is like making 20k a year, expecting a raise from your employeer and doing a huge spending spree. You cut out expenses while hoping for a raise, not SPEND more. 


The rest of my rant is that people are taking more than they ever placed in, that IS the problem.

Yes. And called them the worst generation.

My grandmother died at 82. By her logic she should have been working.

And no generation is worse than current 20-30 something's.the entitled generation
