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.”
