This man is really beginning to annoy me.If he is so convinced that everyone just can't wait to send more $ to the Fed govt, how come he is so set on insulating Congress & its staff from giving up their generous health insurance subsidy? Does he not realize that everybody else is sucking it up?"You keep talking about Medicare and Social Security," Reid said on Thursday, cutting off a Nevada Public Radio host. "Get something else in your brain. Stop talking about that. ... There is not going to be a grand bargain."
He also said Republicans would have to agree on tax-revenue increases for Congress to achieve a large-scale agreement, but they instead have their mind set on "nothing more on revenue."
"And until they get off that kick, there's not going to be a grand bargain," Reid said. "There's not going to be a small bargain. The only people who feel there shouldn't be more [tax money] coming in to the federal government from the rich people are the Republicans in the Congress. Everybody else, including the rich people, is willing to pay more. They want to pay more."
Has ANYone EVER wanted to pay MORE taxes? And in view of the waste and fraud that comes out daily, I'd think most people want to withhold all they can from the govt to squander for their luxury trips, etc.
Talk about out of touch.
