GOP throwing everything into budget talks- ACA, Medicare etc. So why aren't Dems asking for....

Raising the SS tax cap.

Raising cap gains tax or change to mirror standard earnings etc.

Actually raising top marginal rates to something higher than Clinton's

GOP will make a Dem "victory" if the ACA isn't impacted and that's bullshit.

A GOP victory should be that Mitt is taxed at 40%.

I would throw in a new a war tax that kicks on top incomes.

This is bullshit.

1. Everything you propose can be considered "tax reform"

So, in a sense the Republicans have already put that stuff on the table.

Let them negotiate against themselves in public for a while. No need for us to publicly demand anything.

2. WAR TAX FOR 1%

 

Then the GOP will pay their fair share and they may stop trying to find a war every 20 years.
