    This voter doesn't want more taxes for anyone. I want the same taxes for everyone. This election only shows that the American people are still too comfortable, lazy, apathetic or cowardly to try to solve this countries problems. The politicians need for political survival is the problem.

    So true, if more money is needed, let ALL the tax rates go up. Not just a targeted group. That targeted group will raise a little over 600 Billion in ten years time, ALL taxes being raised to the Clinton era rate would raise more than $1.3 TRILLION dollars. As the president like to say, "It's just simple math". Raise them all or shut up about it.

    I don't know why people that lost the election think they have a voice in that matter. We reelected the president for a reason.

    @MBernard each post you show more and more your lack of understanding. I didn't lose an election I didn't run in an election. if you actually believe half of this nation does not have a right to speak , you are the epitome of low information voter

    @MBernard yes I'm quite aware of your reason...hatred for what you don't have or perceive you don't have.
    Remember this. When the house of cards start to fall, you're on you're own.

    @bsking that's not what I am saying. I am saying, we reelected the president and we send him to do a job.

    In his mind perhaps, he's been obsessed with punishing the higher wage earners since day one. In this vein, I just have to pass on a comment a friend sent to me, addressed to all the younguns' who came out if droves to vote with no clear knowledge of what they were voting for. Now I understand why he spend 90% of his time on a college campus, get the low information voter all riled up and get their votes. This is what my friend said.

    "Congratulations to the Democrats and Young People! You now own it. The next terrorist attack you own it. Can't get a job after graduation, you own it. Sky rocketing energy prices due to Obama's EPA shutting down the energy producing states, you own it. A nuclear Iran, you own it. Bowing to the Soviet Union, you own it. Another severe recession, you own it. A volatile border with Mexico, you own it. Trouble getting good health care, you own it. Higher heath insurance costs and health care costs, you own it. No budget, you own it. Our allies mistrust, you own it. Another trillion of debt, you own it. More Benghazi situations, you own it. No one willing to join the military, you own it. Trouble getting a loan to buy a home, you own it. More dependency on food stamps, you own it. Trouble finding good employment, you own it. Several part time jobs instead of a good job, you own it. A World Government, you own it. The UN governing the United States instead of ourselves, you own it. A Senate that will not bring any legislation to the table rather it is "Dead on Arrival", you own it. China controlling our world trade trampling all over us, you own it. Loss of our freedoms as we have known it in the past, you own it. A dictatorship instead of a democracy that follows the Constitution, you own it. Less take home pay and higher living costs, you own it. Driving a car that looks like a toy, you own it. More government corruption and lies, you own it. More toleration of extreme and fanatical Islamists, you own it. Terrorist attacks called work place incidents, you own it. Your revenge instead of love of country, you own it. President George Bush is out of it now, and there is not another good man for you to vilify and lie about. In a way I am relieved that another good man will not be blamed when it was impossible to clean up this mess you voted for. Have a good day. God bless the United States and Texas! God is our hope now."

    I would not say we want the rich to pay more taxes its more like pay their fair share of taxes When my husband and I who make close to 100,000 a year are paying more in taxes then someone making a million a year there is something seriously wrong with the system.

    @Thunderchicken I do not want them to have all these "loopholes" that allow them to shuffle their money around making it look a lot less then it is. Then using every form of deception there is to not pay what they owe. Some of the things I have read about the rich doing with their money so it can not be fairly taxed is sickening.

    No increases, 35% is enough. But I'd support limits on how much you can deduct (non-business expenses). This adds a degree of fairness to the system. That way the super rich like Warren Buffet, Beyonce, Paul Pelosi, etc can't exploit the system and pay less of a % than middle class tax payers.

    Where is your proof of your statement that you pay more than someone making a million a year? This is just the beginning of Nazi Germany in the U.S. Pitting the have not against the have. This man does not represent the constitution, he wants to destroy it and he is! Next you will want to take your neighbor's property because you think they have more than you. Makes me sick!

    Cutting 4T over 10 years is not good enough. How about 10% per year starting with the next budget. Then I'll believe that Obama is sincere.

    @Thunderchicken How about just finally passing a budget, period? Not one in 4 years now. And maybe a wee explanation about why we still don't know about Benghazi, Why the president, who had to know, sat on the CIA chief's being investigated by the FBI, Why we were not informed of our drone being shot at by Iran (An act of war BTW). All of these were BEFORE the election. Why the coverup of all of them and how many more will now come out that we, the American public, did not know about BEFORE the election?

    @Tralee you forgot the UN small arms ban and the greatest increase in food stamps in one year ever....oh and those things we don't know about! I thought Petraous coming out in support of O was odd. Also Clinton is lawyered up international team of heavy hitters bill bought for her.

    Obama say's he gonna tax the rich, but what he doesn't tell you is that he's gonna have to raise taxes on every one across the board to pay for the free loaders out there who refuse to go to work and support them selves, the majority of voters who voted of him are mostly minorities, young people under 35, green energy people, and both public and private union workers heII bent on making the tax payer guarantee the payment of their bloated retirement pensions.. evry Democrat wants the working people to pay for some kind of entitlement whether it be food stamps, welfare, scholarships, dissability, 99 weeks of unemployment benefits, public housing, medicaid and so on.....

    Well said! So I guess that comment that Romney said about the 47% was spot on.
    Which ironically has been twisted in Europe and was being reported that Romney said that he "hates 47% of the population of the USA" - yes "hates".

    Of course, those with no pony in the race are calling the shots, no skin off their nose, so they think. Of course they will change their tune when that job dries up.

    @Tralee funny how that works,sad part is they see nothing wrong with it some even think it is owed to them.

    No, Obama is wrong - as usual. All revenue bills must originate in the House, so if America wanted higher taxes on the rich they would have voted in more Democrats to removed John Boehner from his position.

    If you want to pay off the debt, then it makes more sense to tax people who have money than people who don't. How much can you squeeze from the 99% of the population who only control 1% of the country's wealth?

    I think there are a significant number of people who really do believe the rich are not yet paying enough. The problem with this is, of course, who decides exactly what someone else's "fair share" should be? This is the lion, the wolf and the sheep deciding on what's for lunch. Then we have the problem of the tax loopholes for the wealthy that were put in place years ago by the Democrats for the Democrats that will assure that the rich continue to avoid tax increases, so this is all a study in rhetoric, not financial problem solving. Lastly, we have the problem many citizens do not understand, corporations do not pay taxes. They pass their tax increases to the consumer in the form of higher prices for goods and services. What the American people need to understand is the Republicans are not protecting their rich cronies so much as they are protecting the middle class from massive cost of living increases. Unfortunately the Repuplicans remain incapable of artculating their message to the people. The real solution is a flat tax with no loopholes for the wealthy.

    So now we are no longer looking at turning socialist. The new fashionable fear is now Fascism? Or are we now falling into the depths of Socialist Fascism with a twist of Communism for good measure? I have also heard we are headed for Anarchy. From the looks of things, no matter what we are screwed, right? Be hard to dodge all those bullets.

    @MRMacrum Obama's pitting Americans against Americans is extreme and could potentially lead to what occurred in Germany. Germans thought they were entitled to the jews property and not only that, they killed them without any hesitation. Yes, I do believe that Obama wants to destroy this country. He has no intention of living with less or giving his possessions away, he will continue to add to it, at the expense of others. I think he is a terrible, evil person. You know what they say, go with your gut feeling and my gut feeling is that he is evil. He not only wants to take from the wealthy, he has no respect for life, no respect for religion, he is a racist. He is a cold, wicked man. Just wait and see, suppress the less intelligent as he has mastered and they will vote for him no matter what, because they think they will get something for nothing. He will continue to use them and destroy the country. Any person in their right mind, would not support Obama.

    @Zoe2012

    Please calm down and stop projecting. Merely asking those who have benefited the most to pay a little more in taxes is not fascism, socialism, or communism. The top rate under Eisenhower was over 90%. Even if all the bush tax cuts expire, we would still have one of the lowest tax rates among the western democracies.

    this shows what happens when low information voters install a tyrant.
    he also gave the go ahead or America to sign onto the small arms treaty at the UN.
    it shows at his supporters hate this country , as founded , as much as he does.

    @martydotcom Your first mistake is assuming my level of financial security. The only good thing about Obama being re-elected is that my investment in guns and ammo doubled in value overnight.

    I would rather see the following:
    Tax loopholes closed for CEO salaries and employment outsourcing.
    Less tax-dollars wasted. All tax dollars accounted for.
    Civilian review committees. Heard of check and balance?
    Regulations reimposed on financial services. Regulations instituted on healthcare and energy industries. Catch up with 2012 or GTFO.
