    Default Where is the list?

    I'm looking for the list of Dems who gave back the evil tax reductions that Bush passed all by himself. I've Goolged it but came up empty. All I can find is articles about the Dems wanting to increase taxes or allow the Bush reductions expire but no list of those who refused to take the reduction or pay more than they owe. I guess you could make a list starting with Wrangle, Daschle, Brainard, Killefer, Marshall and oh yeah Geithner...

    Where's the list of frogs with wings?
    What's the point?
    Once a budge and tax code is passed, its LAW.

    Ooh. A little touchy this morning. Must have hit a nerve.

    There is no law I know of that prevents anyone from sending the government as much money as they want. There must be a list. Are you on the list? Oprah? Alec Baldwin? Streisand? Letterman? Algore? Reid? Boxer? Pelosi? Franks? I can't believe I can't find the list.

    My point is that if the Dems felt so strongly about the tax cut, nobody kept them from paying more. Some Dems felt the cuts were not enough and they should even pay less.

    And according to that omniscient lefty, Yardley...MOST Americans opposed that Bush tax cut.

    It will be interesting to see if he falls into that category when those cuts expire at the end of this year. But then, for all I know he may be like MOST of the SFNC that doesn't have to pay any taxes, which would fit right in to the socialists class envy beliefs.

    Hey! Don't put me on a list with B. Frank, and I won't put you on a list with Larry Craig!

    I get your point, but isn't voluntarily paying more taxes by a democrat who thinks taxes are ok, kind of like a republican who thinks that gov't entitlements are wrong voluntarily forfeiting medicare benefits, and just paying all those hospital bills out of pocket? While we're making lists....

    I would assume that anyone concerned about the growing deficit would object to continuing tax cuts that will do nothing except make the deficit even bigger. Alternatively, of course, I am sure there must be a ground swell among Republicans to insist on spending cuts that are at least as great as the long term cost of extending the cuts..

    Lists? I didn't make a list. I only looking for one that doesn't exist.

    As far as Medicare benefits are concerned, folks are just trying to get back a portion of what they paid in on their own behalf. Different deal.

    Not even close! An 80 year old getting Folfox with Avastin chemo will spend more in one month than they, and 10 of their friends paid in over their entire lives! (or some equally ridiculous amount)

    And we all reap benefits of paying taxes, ie firemen, police, roads, schools, etc... What bothers me about taxes, is when it goes to Halliburton in astronomical amounts for substandard service, and to put million dollar 'gratuities' in the hands of politicians with relevant legislation before them. Duke Cunningham, and a fair share of democrats also, to be sure, as examples.

    Well, hey, now that you mention it, I really think that some sort of health care reform to bring those costs down is necessary. I wonder if anyone in Washington has considered that...I think I'll write an email to my representatives.

    What?? And deny those rich pharma execs their due profits?? No way! This is America! Better to have the common folk die wanting for treatment, than to deny corporate America the profits from those few who can afford it!!

    Gee, maybe with some reasonable reform we can have it both ways, albiet with a little compromise from both sides??
