The nature of a compromise is to give up some things so that the other side will do the same, and that’s what happened. The president has a big victory here. It’s big because it means there won’t be a tax increase at the first of the year, which could have hurt our economy. Unemployment benefits are going out to help millions of people across this country, and we’re giving businesses some breaks to help that they will be able to stabilize and build their own employee workforce in the process.
Dick Durbin on the new passed tax bill-
Do these people in Washington think that the American people are stupid? Yea, I think they do. Over the last several decades, and even farther back than that, the Democrats have done everything they can to make sure that taxes go up, government gets bigger and social programs grow to take more and more of our money. But now, two years after liberals have all done their best to destroy our economy, you democrats are trying to take credit for the bill that was passed the other night, that you all have been against since the beginning, 7+ years ago. You remember that don’t you? That’s when Bush initiated the tax cuts that became our tax code, and were set to expire at the first of the year. But, taking credit for the extension of the existing tax code is not what the democrats are after. OH NO!
They are now claiming that the TAX CUTS have been passed, *which they haven’t* and, that since they have been passed, the American people will see a decrease in their taxes and, that they can start spending to help the economy……..but the taxes have not be reduced. If they actually were, the economy would get better. But, the opposite is going to happen, and the economy is not going to thrive because of it, and the democrats will then blame the Republicans for the lack of stimulus to the economy that wasn’t GOING TO HAPPEN in the first place. Get ready for the blame folks. Because, it is coming. Mark my words.
“The president has a big victory here. It’s big because it means there won’t be a tax increase at the first of the year.” We have to remember this folks. Because the democrats have finally said out in open, what we have been saying for decades. Higher taxes do not help the economy. And when Dick Durbin says this, we know that you and the democrats do not think this is big. We all know this is not what you want. We all know that you are only saying this because you know the people do not want the tax hikes you really want. We also know that as time goes on, you will figure we will forget and you will go back to “bigger government programs, and more taxes” again, after you guys have already done as much damage to this economy as one political party could in two years!
To me, it is amazing, and not in a good way, that you now come along and want to claim victory because you’re not gonna damage the economy? But we all know, destroying what is good about this country are the things that you stand for. That and being in power…….NOTHING ELSE. You have fooled us for too long, and the people have finally awakened to your shenanigans. And we are not going back to sleep. The TEA party has arrived. And TEA doesn’t mean TAX EVERYONE AGAIN! Get it right. It means TAXED ENOUGH ALREADY! And this next line is to both parties: Stop your spending. Because we are tired of paying for it. The money has run out.
May God bless our efforts to help get America back, and put God back into our country.
God, Bless America. Bless Americans.
