If Obama can't get them to come up to 39% then we should go over the so called cliff instead


It's the better option isn't it? Or am I missing something?

1. That's what I think. Things really couldn't get much worse in terms of the kinds of CHANGES

that most of us need, not just right now, but for the future of this nation.

I think we should hold out for the Real Deal.

3. Yeah, I think it would be better

The biggest gain in going over the fictitious "cliff" is the cuts to defense, as theres no other way to cut that with the GOP protecting it.

4. We should go over no matter what. Everything would go back to the way it was.

 

Not just the top rate, which doesn't really hit the 1% that hard. A guy like Romney won't feel that top rate at all because he doesn't pay income tax. Capital gains will go back to 20% which he and the other money for nothing scum do pay and the corporate minimum tax of 16% comes back which also helps. No more billion dollar rebates for Exxon or GE.

The top rate argument doesn't address the problem. It's not going to help that much. Go over the cliff and force the pukes to eat a real shit sandwich. Or just do nothing. I don't mind paying extra taxes if it means there is more money for programs and improvement projects.
