  •  And I can understand someone on SS (3+ / 0-)

    budgeting accordingly.   I continue to fail to see why we are so tender hearted towards people earning over $200K while at the same time believing someone getting $20K in Social Security can just tighten their belt.

    I reject one cent in Social Security benefit cuts until there is real sacrifice by the well off.  These tax increases are a joke.  They don't touch even the top 5% of Americans and even then they are no real sacrifice.

    I don't want to hear about deficits or safety net cuts if no one is serious about taxing the people who are currently earning at a level that leaves them with discretionary income.  

    There is no balance in any of proposed bills.

    •  I was offering a compromise as suggested to me. (0+ / 0-)

      I agree with everything you said except the people getting 20K in SS.  I know a lot of people who get half than that and even less.
