That needs to happen AND, they need to pay their share, not more, but their share. NOT %14 or less. That is the issue. Until they are paying what the rest of the country is, in terms of %, no less no more, then I doubt he budges. So yes, removing loopholes and whatnot will get it closer to the goal, it's only half of the issue.



It's quotes like these that make me wonder if many liberals understand the tax codes as they stand.

Especially when 47 percent of the country doesn't pay taxes at all.

It's this whole..."fair share" thing that drives me crazy.

What is everyone's fair share? How much is enough?

Washington would much rather go after our hard earned dollar than cut programs, jobs, debts, etc.

If you want to complain about other people's lack of knowledge you could at least bother to get your own facts right.

You'd be hard-pressed to find a single person in this country who pays no taxes, outside of small children. Hell I payed 14 cents in taxes already today

The real issue is, the whole tax thing needs blown up and rebuilt from the ground up, but good luck getting people to agree on anything.

If liberals had their way, there would be means-based taxation at Food Lion to see if you should pay more in taxes for milk versus someone else.

"50 percent to 49 percent is a landslide? Okay."
You do know the election is won based upon the Electoral College, right? (332 to 206 is a landslide @ 62%)
And the popular vote was 50.9% to 47.4% not that it matters, because if it did, Al Gore would have won the election against "W" when Gore won the popular vote. Or don't you remember?

"He's also wanting the office of the presidency to have unilateral power to raise the debt limit. Was that part of his election promise?"
Mitch McConnell proposed this and within a couple hours was filibustering his own bill when Dems agreed to take it to a vote.

"Reid, senate democrats, are the most useless individuals on the hill."
A lot, and I mean a lot of people would completely think you're living in a fantasy world given the fact the Republicans control Congress, yet they have done nothing for 2 years except complain and stonewall.
