Policy – What is wrong with the Republican Party – ‘Congressional Republicans’ ‘Compromise’: Everyone Should Accept Romney Tax Plan’

All we have to do is ignore the will and wishes of the American people for 4 more years and then we can put a Republican in the White House.

‘Survey says? Americans want taxes raised on wealthy before federal budget cuts’
@ :

Here’s Bowles-Simpson various tax plans :
‘The committee assumed that the Bush tax cuts would be extended for lower earners, but would be allowed to expire for the two highest brackets’.
@ :

It’s pretty clear to me. The American people AND Bowles – Simpson want to raise taxes on the wealthy.

But that’s NOT what the Republicans are saying.

So ask yourself.

Why are the Republicans lying to the American people?

‘Seemingly ignoring that over than 3 million more Americans voted for President Obama than Mitt Romney on Tuesday, Congressional Republicans are moving quickly to embrace Speaker John Boehner’s (R-OH) call to adopt a tax “compromise” that is virtually identical to the tax proposal that Romney made the centerpiece of his failed campaign’.

Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-GA): On ABC’s This Week, Chambliss said, “Bowles-Simpson said, look, eliminate all these tax credits and tax deductions. You can generate somewhere 1 to 1.2 trillion in additional revenue. You can actually lower tax rates by doing that”.

Rep. Tom Cole (R-OK): In a Friday column, House Budget Committee member Cole wrote: “However, raising tax rates is not the only way to increase revenue, nor is it the best way. Speaker Boehner has proposed comprehensive tax reform to raise revenue and lower rates. Eliminating inefficient loopholes and deductions will generate economic growth while creating a simpler, fairer tax code.”

Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX): In a Wednesday Tweet, House Ways and Means Committee member Brady opined: “Stronger economic growth from tax reform that lowers rates and closes loopholes will generate higher revenue to bring the deficit down’.

Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA): In a letter to his Republican caucus, the House Majority Leader wrote: “What would be best is a fundamental reform of the tax code that lowers rates’.

Rep. Tom Price (R-GA): On Fox News Sunday, House Republican Policy Committee Chairman Price, a member of both the Ways and Means and Budget Committees, said “We can increase revenue without increasing the tax rates on anybody in this country.”

Worth a listen – Mondays Music – ‘Beginning of the End of the Empire – by Ramon & Jessica’

‘Ramon & Jessica (Dina Maccabee and Jesse Olsen Bay) have made a deep impression locally and on the internet with their daring a cappella arrangements, including their jaw-dropping rendition of Nick Drake’s “Free Ride,” which they debuted at UnderCover Presents’ tribute to Pink Moon in San Francisco. The duo was nominated this year as contenders for Bay Area Artist of the Month by the Deli online music magazine, and they have been featured on the front page of YouTube for their video “Questions,” produced and directed by YouTube phenomenon Jonathan Mann’.
‘Beginning of the End of the Empire – Ramon & Jessica
The song “At the Beginning of the End of the Empire” riffs on themes of post-apocalyptic society, DIY culture, and political stagnation. The release of this video is timed to comment on the current election hype, while reflecting on the turmoils of the past four years: climate change, Occupy Wall Street, economic uncertainty, and amidst all this, the continuation of everyday life by everyday people.The video is an eye-popping, kaleidoscopic pastiche of contemporary and vintage images, with Dina and Jesse cast as news anchors reporting on troubling and sometimes ridiculous events. Shot on location in Oakland, CA and at a first-class production studio in San Francisco, it artfully satirizes the absurd theater of mainstream news media, while capturing the focused energy of Ramon & Jessica’s minimalist musical style’.

Why America is Failing – The ‘Enemy from within’ – Sore Loser Secessionists Let Out A Rebel Whine With White House Petitions’

While our economy is bad and it will take a huge effort just to keep it from imploding, this is why America will fail.

“At what point, then, is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide”.
Lincoln’s ‘”The Perpetuation of our Political Institutions”
@ :

‘Nothing says I hate democracy like this White House petition started by Michael E. from Slidell, LA the day after Obama was elected President of the United States of America’.

‘And whining cry babies in eighteen other states have joined them in stamping their feet and declaring that they don’t want to be our friends anymore because their candidate wasn’t victorious’.

“we petition the obama administration to”:

“Peacefully grant the State of Louisiana to withdraw from the United States of America and create its own NEW government.
As the founding fathers of the United States of America made clear in the Declaration of Independence in 1776″:

“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them…….”

Oh it gets better (or worse)….

‘But in case the secessionist path doesn’t work, the Obama haters have another petition out there as well from Jana W., APO, AE’.

“we petition the obama administration to”:

“Recount the election”!
“It has become blatantly obvious the voter fraud that was committed during the 2012 Presidential elections. In one county alone in Ohio, which was a battleground state, President Obama received 106,258 votes…but there were only 98,213 eligible voters. It’s not humanly possible to get 108% of the vote”!

“If ID laws had been enforced (which the administration is completely against because that meant they would lose) then this wouldn’t be an issue”.

“Recount NOW”!

‘108% of the vote’?!

‘That didn’t sound right to me so I did a little more checking’.

‘According to this astounding vote total happened in Wood County, Ohio so I checked their vote counts and found that 31596 votes were cast for Obama, a percentage of 50.9%’.

‘Once again the wing nut echo chamber has pulled some lie out of their ass and found almost 10,000 people gullible enough to sign a White House petition based on this phony story’.

Papa John says ‘Screw you employees. I built that!’ – Papa John’s pizza cuts employees’ hours supposedly due to Obamacare’

What a great American he is.

You know, I really can’t imagine a business owner having so little respect or regards to the people that work for him.

I guess this proves that he did build that and they don’t matter.

‘Schnatter said he will likely reduce workers’ hours, as a result of President Obama’s reelection’.

‘As the CEO of Papa Johns, John Schnatter can do what he wants to do with the company. He created it, and built it into a massive enterprise across the US. He’s reportedly worth around $260 million and lives in a mansion with its own golf course’.

‘Yet, despite living luxuriously, he claims that charing 11 to 14 cents more per pizza (his estimate of what Obamacare will cost his company) is simply too much — so he’s going to cut his employees’ hours, and pay, instead, so the law won’t apply to him’.

‘Papa John’s CEO John Schnatter said he plans on passing the costs of health care reform to his business onto his workers. Schnatter said he will likely reduce workers’ hours, as a result of President Obama’s reelection, the Naples News reports’.

‘The next time you want a pizza, just keep this in mind. CEOs can make choices, but so can consumers’.

‘Petition To Senator McConnell – Step Down As Minority Leader’

Sign the petition :
‘Replace Mitch McConnell with Susan Collins as Minority Leader’
@ :
‘Senator Mitch McConnell has based his entire tenure as Senate Minority Leader on the proposition of blocking legislation, of making President Obama a “One Term President.”

‘With the re-election of Obama, it is clear that Mitch McConnell has failed, utterly and absolutely’.

‘His six years as Senate Minority Leader has been one of the most abysmal of any minority party’.

‘Through his failure to engage with the majority, he has effectively turned the Republicans into what the public view as “the party of no,” a do-nothing Congress’.

‘His positions have painted the Republican party as anti-women, anti-LGBT, anti-minority, the party of rich, white men only’.

‘If he stays in his position as Senate Minority Leader, 2014 will be a Republican bloodbath’.

‘If the GOP does not do something big and quick, come 2014 there may not be enough of a party left to be considered a national party. A Republican party as a regional party may be the only thing left for them otherwise’.

But it’s NOT Republican Obstructionism – ‘Mitch McConnell: ‘We Have a Voter Mandate Not to Raise Taxes’

Makes you proud to be an American when you vote for someone who represents you but doesn’t listen to you.

‘As Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell sits for an interview in his Capitol office 48 hours after the election, one thing is certain: He is in no way chastened by Tuesday’s results. If Mr. Obama wants fiscal hand-to-hand combat, he will get it’.

“Let me put it very clearly,” says the five-term Republican senator from Kentucky. “I am not willing to raise taxes to turn off the sequester. Period.”
From :

M) ‘60% of voters want taxes to go up. But, oddly, only a third thinks they should be raised to cut the deficit’.
@ :

Oh but Senator McConnell wasn’t done :

“Look, he may think it would be helpful to his presidency to continue to divide and demonize us,” says Mr. McConnell’.

But in 2010 :

Senator Mitch McConnell : “We need to say to everyone on Election Day, “Those of you who helped make this a good day, you need to go out and help us finish the job.”

NJ: “What’s the job”?

McConnell: “The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president”.
