So the post is against tax cuts for the middle class? These tax cuts would help out many small business owners. The more tax cuts the middle class gets the better for the economy. Good thing this isn't class warfare that only happens to the wealthy that the rights supports.

The Washington Post editorial board on Wednesday night slammed House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for pushing to permanently extend “middle class” tax cuts for people earning up to $1 million, warning that it makes Democrats look “almost as irresponsible” as Republicans defending tax cuts for the rich.

You and the op really should work on your English comprehension skills.

It's people earning up to a million dollars not millionaires.

I'm not sure what she is even talking about.

She may not know what she is talking about.

Tax cuts are fine, but the article points out:

By raising the middle class threshold from $250,000 to $1 million, about 43 percent of federal revenue will be lost in 2013, the editorial continues, and that is likely to be the case for subsequent years. An unintended effect of Pelosi's proposal is that those earning more than $1 million would be among its biggest beneficiaries, as they would enjoy the benefit of paying lower marginal rates on their first $1 million of income.

"Ms. Pelosi and others who have taken this position ... are contemplating spending several hundred billion dollars over the coming decade to help the wealthiest Americans. That is several hundred billion dollars in a time of scarce resources and mounting debt -- money that could be used, as Ms. Pelosi well knows, for worthier purposes," the editorial reads.

This would "force" an equal amount in "spending cuts" as well ?


I think she is talking crazy as usual.

She knows full well the Democrats will never support this I think ?

Instead of concentrating on taxes, the congressmen should be cutting spending.

I mean shutting down entire agencies. - EPA -

Then shut down the Dept. of Education. Turn it back over to the states.

- Think income & Out go -

Reduce the spending.

Reform the Big 3. - Social Security - MediCare - MediCaid -
