Despite having just raised taxes on the ‘rich’, Maxine Waters says there is still ‘unfairness’ in the tax system and that Congress needs to raise taxes on more people to ensure they are paying their fair share (via Newsbusters):

SCHULTZ: All right, who’s got the leverage in two months? (alluding to another looming battle over the debt ceiling)

WATERS: Well, you know, the Republicans are talking about, what all they’re going to do with these tax cuts. The president has said we cannot cut our way out of a deficit and he’s absolutely correct. The first thing that we’ve got to do is look at where we still have unfairness in the tax system and make sure that the people of influence, the billionaires and the millionaires and the corporate interests are paying their fair share. And I believe that whether we’re talking about the financial speculation tax or the elimination of the carried interest or defense spending, we’ve got areas that we could look at to get fair share so that we’re able to take care of the basic needs of this country rather than going to Medicare and Medicaid and Social Security and focusing on those areas as the only place that we can get more revenue.

Here’s a tip: The rich will never be paying their fair share in the eyes of Democrats as long as the entitlement needs of the country continue to grow. That’s why these people have to be defeated and our Republican legislators need to TELL THE TRUTH about these socialists!

    I think it would be helpful if we have a democrat’s definition of fair share. I believe it is this: “The rich pay enough in taxes that they are no longer rich”.

    The jokers in government have a proven track record of not being able to “help the poor” in this country, in fact they have made things worse. So, if they can’t help the poor then the least they can do is hurt the rich. After all fair is fair, right?

    The American Dream is on life support.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/44F4AB4VSCTOCHBMBG4ZWWD5OU Laurel

      They will never define it because if they do they hit the end of the line. That is why ‘rich’ is continually redefined downward.

      • colliemum

        Yep – and once there are no more ‘Rich’, revenge can be taken on the ‘former rich’, because they need to be punished for having been ‘rich’.

        See the history of the former Soviet Union …

            In regard to gun-grabbing and terror, yes.
            Not in regard to “The Rich” – provided they weren’t Jewish!
            Germanic/Teutonic “Rich” were very welcome, and encouraged, and had the opportunity to make shedloads of money.

            • Orangeone

      Edit to: “The rich pay enough in taxes that we no longer have a deficit (and all our social(ist) programs continue to grow and spend like mad.”

      That’s what they really want: “Open Checkbook”

      Heck, they’d even be happy with an open checkbook and ever growing debt if the rest of us and our creditors would just shut the hell up.

          Yes and up to the point of the gun that is directed their way.

    • clockwindingdown

      The Leftist should always be made to define their buzz phrases. “Fair share”, “Forward”, “Change”, “Rich”, “going back to the 50’s”, “tea bagger”, etc.. They won’t, I agree.

      They are picking the subject, picking the wording but are not held to explain what they mean. We need people, all of us in conversation asking anyone an everyone what does that mean in the lefts words, not what do you an I think it means!

      We all knew as soon as they got some kind of tax increase concession they would be back asking for more. It took them less then 24hrs to start in again.

      I said it before and I’ll say it again stop feeding the cycle congress! Say “no and shut up”, the subject of increasing taxes and revenue is off the table!

    The Rich did not do anything illegal by becoming rich, so what entitles people like Maxine Waters to demand that the Rich give their money away to strangers?

    Geez, I am so sick of these people. Idiots all.

    • colliemum

      Yes – but idiots with power, and they are the most dangerous.

    • Orangeone

      Correct! And not just Congress but regular citizens that believe they are entitled to what others have rightfully earned and/or envious because some have worked hard and taken the risk to invest in start-up companies, new technology, new medical device or medical technology and succeeded with their investments.

    • PatrickHenrysBody

      The last person I would ask for any kind of financial advice is Mad Max Waters. Let’s turn back the hands of time and take a look-see:

      It’s understandable that Mad Max would take the path of least resistance and jump on the “tax the rich” bandwagon, so that the “poor” get their “fair share”, even though most of “the poor” (i.e., those receiving entitlements) have never worked for and earned a paycheck in their lives.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/44F4AB4VSCTOCHBMBG4ZWWD5OU Laurel

    Including you Maxine. I think politicians tax forms should be public information put in a book for public consumption every year.

    • Orangeone

      Not just their tax forms but their personal detailed financial statements and investment portfolios as well as the financial benefits their family members have received through gov’t grants, loans, projects, etc.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/44F4AB4VSCTOCHBMBG4ZWWD5OU Laurel

        I agree…and a freedom of information request should not be necessary especially since they have no problems publishing names of gun permit owners.

  • colliemum

    “The president has said we cannot cut our way out of a deficit and he’s absolutely correct.” – only in the eyes of the economically illiterate, like Madame Walters and of course the POS himself.
    Conservatives keep saying we cannot spend our way out of debt and deficit – but as long as the printing presses keep printing, all will be well.
    Until people have to use wheelbarrows to carry the cash to pay for a loaf of bread, that is.

    I wish economical pundits would grasp the fact that this is about the destruction of all wealth of a population – not that of “The Rich”, who will go elsewhere with their wealth, something ordinary people cannot do.
    And it will lead to a dictatorship – just look at the Weimar Republic and their bitter end.

    • PatrickHenrysBody

      I would take financial advice from a money launderer over that of Mad Max Waters. Oh wait, she is a money launderer. Okay, how about I would much rather take financial advice from somebody who is a reckless spender…oh wait again.

  • sjmom

    And Maxine, let’s start with Congress. How about you living like everyone else with no perks, no special health insurance and all of the other bennies you get???????????? You cut your own benefits and then we can talk about everyone else because until you do you are blowing smoke!

    Saul Alinsky, one of Obama’s and Hillary’s mentors, was one of the the most prominent community organizers in his lifetime. Alinsky hated the middle class as he saw them as a buffer to the upperclass. He felt the middle class must be destroyed in order to bring the upperclass down. Once the middle class was brought down to the lower classes, then the real redistribution of wealth could succeed. Hillary wrote a paper in her last year at Wellesly suopporting Alinsky’s vision. This has been coming for decades and is now out of the closet as over half of the Americans are on board with that philosophy. Throw in the constant indocrination of lies and deceptions of the leftwing fanatcs by the mainstream media and the future looks like it does now.

    How much more is fair? Is it fair that my inheritance is almost within reach of the estate tax yet my income puts me well below the poverty line? Is it fair that farmers need MASSIVE amounts of assets so they can make a living? Would it be fair if all farmers would just work for free? Would it be fair if the government took ownership of farmland and enslaved the farmers there to produce free food for everyone else? Would it be fair if the government took ownership of all the houses and gave free rent to the Canadians and charged the difference to Americans? Would it be fair if we took income tax to 90% and gave the Mexicans all the entitlements and none to Americans?

    • PatrickHenrysBody

      Silence! Don’t give them any ideas. :-)

  • Rshill7

    How can you look at a bouncing baby girl and name her Maxine? That isn’t fair either.

    What’s really not fair though is Water’s definition of fair. Less than 1% of our population pays approximately 40% of all taxes. About half pay zero. Is paying zero fair? How? is paying all of it fair? How?

    The top 50% pay ALL of the taxes. In what dictionary would that be considered fair? The Urban Dictionary? The Ebonics Dictionary? Mein Kampf? Maybe it’s in the dreaded secret codebook, you know, where everything a conservative says is code for racism.

    Some people not only pay zero, the government takes your money and gives it to them in the form of EIC. Why not just assign several poor folk to each rich household? They can become their legal dependents, or illegal dependents. They might learn something about effort…about work…about what actually goes into making decent money from your own efforts.

    Our country is chock full of illegal dependents now, aka, non-citizens. It’s one of those unique classifications of breaking the law where there is not only zero punishment, but actual rewards amounting to tens of thousands of dollars per year…for breaking the law.
    So, when is breaking the law.

    Society itself used to applaud hard work and success. Now it openly denigrates both. This is a recipe that’ll never come out right. Unless of course you consider freedom, and rugged individualism “right”. I do. Our founders did. Of course they were also evil rich folk.

    Many heroes of old are now treated as enemies and 50% of our citizens are treated like seagulls, albeit with much, much, more than french fries and crackers. These have food, housing, cable, internet, heat and cooling, two cars, and free everything. Ever been swarmed by seagulls at a picnic table? Uh huh, they tend to grab food from your table while crapping on the same. Our current crop of politicians are quite similar. It’s time to send a huge reaper through DC.

  • joyfulgiver

    How about we STOP increasing the SIZE of government. With every new government agency comes the need for more taxes in order to pay for the new government hires. We aren’t just talking about the frivolous spending anymore, it’s getting to the point where soon, every dollar we earn is going to need to go to the government to pay for the government employees and their benefits packages.

    Decrease the SIZE of government NOW! We are all having to get by with less because these bozos in government think we can’t do anything without government control. I was listening to Hannity yesterday and some guy actually said that the rich would be taxed enough after 70% of their income over $1 million dollars was taxed. Tell me, where is the incentive to bust your butt to make money if the government is going to take 70% of what you make. What an idiot! This guy probably is one of those people that doesn’t understand the simple fact that government does not create ANY product to support it’s spending habits. The only way government has money is from robbing it from those earning it.

    If America ever comes back to her collective senses, we should have a “Hall of Shame”, kinda’ like a Holocaust Museum, with wax figures of the entire Obama Administration in it for starters.

    We could also have some talking Founding Father wax figures holding conversations with these progressive, commie types where the commies are read the riot act to these…Reagan included. Where the commies are continually lectured about how expensive, destructive, subjugating, stupid, and evil they’ve been.

And when the people lose their entitlements and food stamps because the New Obama Elite doesn’t want to share all the money they took from the rich and the poor, YOU GO TO JAIL AND MARTIAL LAW IS DECLARED, if you dare to speak out against the dictators. History has the deadly tendency to repeat again and again.
    Or do you think that Maxine Waters has a better idea for you and me? Maxine Waters is a bad person and maybe mentally sick. She is not a democrat but a sick communist hungry for power and wealth. The problem is that we cannot take any organic samples from her to analyze if she has a congenital mental disorder or not.

        Not really. Then you will be qualified to live on “Obama Bucks” like the rest of the malcontents and “Free Loaders”.

        • Orangeone

          We will be excluded because we were once rich. They will still need bodies to clean, cut grass, pick up trash for them.

    I’ll tell you what’s unfair. UNFAIR is having almost 50% of the population paying NO Federal Income tax while sticking the burden of paying for it all to the rest of us. How come they never seem to want to talk about that unfairness?

    • colliemum

      That’s easy: it would cost them their cherished votes, thus they couldn’t get their trotters into the Big Trough that is DC any longer.

      • Orangeone

        “trotters” that’s one I haven’t read before :)

        • colliemum

          We’ve been using it for some time now: after all, that’s what pigs use for walking on, and they do stick them into their feeding trough!

          So some wag in the UK came up with ‘troughers’ for our MPs and local politicians, and it has stuck ever since …

            That is sooo funny mum

  • Hacker5988

    Look the Dems and Pubs did not raise taxes on the rich. The rich do not get salaries they live on asset imcome. Dividend income went up from 15-20% that is it. When you factor in their write offs and defered compensation most RICH will pay maybe 10% or less of their dividend income per year. What was taxed was working income between 50 and 200K/yr which will pay the most of anyone. This idiot does not know the difference and she is just a DRIVER for the Dems and LIBS. Keep them on the plantation and voting DEM and we will take care of you and her. Why SCOOP even puts this idiot on or acknowledge her as news I cannot figure out. These people just insult the intellience of the audience that visits this good website ??

    Never thought I’d say this, but this time, the slimy, Compton Carck Ho is onto something.

    All tht effort to bring Federal Employee wages up to the private Sector which included designing managerial wages so Fed Managers wuold receive bonuses, just like the boys who earnd the right to wear long pants, which began in the mid ninetities and caused fed manager wages to nearly double– now there should be a tax on those wages to reduce federal employee’s take home pay to match standard salaries for private sector people as they are in 2013.

    We would take in millions.

    Okay Maxie, now shut up and go back to sucking your pipe, ignorant skag! They ought to chain you and keep your narrow behind in a cage out by the garage.

  • lainer51

    The first thing that we’ve got to do is look at where we still have unfairness in the tax system and make sure that the people who now PAY NO TAXES and are on the DOLE are paying their fair share.

    • UnCL3

      amen!

    • UnCL3

      if you pay NO income taxes you shouldn’t be allowed to VOTE.

      • Orangeone

        I should learn to read below before I post!

      “The first thing that we’ve got to do is look at where we still have unfairness in the tax system and make sure that the people who now PAY NO TAXES and are on the DOLE are paying their fair share.”

      My modification: The first thing that we’ve got to do is look at where we still have unfairness in the tax system and make sure that the people who now PAY NO TAXES and are on the DOLE are no longer eligible or able to vote.

    Yeah well why isn’t someone on our side standing up and screaming for us? Something or someone has got to do something and soon!!!!! This is outrageous. Where is our representation? Is there just a bunch of cowards left?

  • Kordane

    Government isn’t worth what they’re charging rich people for it.

    Also, government is worth more than what they’re charging poor people for it.

    There is no equality in charging people more than others; there is no equality in charging people less than others.

    There is no justice in charging some people more than something is worth, and charging some people less than something is worth.

    It’s not fair by the standards of equality or justice. It is therefore unequal and unjust.

    You know what really p*sses me off about all of this “fair share” BS? It’s subjective and doesn’t even exist. It’s a myth made up by the joker in the White House and is whatever he says it is. It’s not a finite number; it’s however much the narcissist in chief wants it to be and there is no limit. Why don’t illegals who drain our system have to pay a “fair share”? Where the hell is the fairness in that? The people who contribute nothing yet draw welfare, healthcare and other entitlements don’t seem to have a fair share. I wonder how that ass hat would explain that!

  • cheyennecowboy

    I SAY WE SECEDE! Red States and Blue states. Blue states will be the left coast, the northeast, and maybe a few Great Lakes States, and Hawaii. The Red States will be the rest. Let’s just see in about 10 years who has the most thriving economy and who is still giving away the store and about to sink into bankruptcy and insolvency. NO DOUBT IN MY MIND. We’re almost there now. Only a complete restructuring might save us. We should go back to the requirement that only landowners can vote. That just might end some people wanting THEIR “free stuff.” I’m tired of supporting the leftist socialists who want to steal from those of us who work, give it all away to those who DON’T want to work, and to buy votes. Sound familiar? Government spending, as a percentage of GDP, has vaulted to 40% and increasing. That is too darn much government and too many government employees we DON’T need. And the debt they are pilling on us and our kids….FOR WHAT? Only one thing: RE-ELECTION.

    Fair Share;

    Many on this thread have all hit the preverbal nail on the head, that is most in the Democratic Party, and more than a few in the Republican party will ever define Fair Share. The battle cry over fair share is exactly what the Democratic party wants to engage in. It keeps their voting base fixated on a symptom rather than a cure. Yes many in the Republican party engage in this type of battle tactic as well. I believe most will agree that the tax system, as is, has and is the problem.

    So what to do? I still believe that for any tax system to be fair it must follow at least three simple guidelines to be considered fair.

    1. No person or company is exempt from being taxed – Before many here jump in the lake of fire, abandon all hope, sell their kids, and head for the mother ship, please understand this simple idea. If you have income, then by default that income is subject to taxation for services provided by the country as a whole, things like Military services, Police services, Fire Protection Services, and other Civil services that aren’t covered by private enterprises. Many will put trash services in this group but these are normally private companies subsidized by state and federal organizations. The premise of this is simple, you can’t expect to get all of these services for free. That means everyone.

    2. No person or company will be afforded loop holes – The current tax code provides numerous loop holes for any who are smart enough to find them or rich enough to pay for them. Human nature the way it is will always bring the worst out in some. To avoid the propensity of crooked people to cheat, then we must close the avenues they use to cheat.

    3. Enact a Fair Flat Tax Code – The easiest method to ensure that all people pay their fair share would be to employ a fair flat tax rate for all people and companies to follow. Again, before any start to commit sewer pipes, sell their best hunting dog, cancel Christmas, and bring about an alien invasion, the fair flat tax code should be instituted in a way to encourage economic grow. IMHO a fair method to address all money earners is to employ a Graduated flat tax bracket with the lowest earners being set at 6% with the top earners being set at 8%

    • TimeForAnarchy

      The only “good” thing about the current tax code is that it insures the employment of the CPA community (and I have nothing against CPA’s). Other than that, 73,000 pages of worthless lawyer-ese.

  • SKL53

    Maxine Waters should keep her BIG YAP shut! Wasn’t her husband involved in some sort of tax evasion scandal several years ago????

  • bobemakk

    Maxine Waters should be jailed along with Charles Rangle, and Debbie W. Schultz should be removed at the DNC chairman. They are so full of hot air and bad backgrounds that who would even want them representing US.

  • chatterbox365

    Ok Maxine…start writing some checks since you feel the rich (which includes you) don’t pay their fair share.

    I can’t stand this woman and it’s really sad that people continue to vote for her. A friend of mine ran against her in 2008 and he received no help from RINOs running the RNC.

  • herb benty

    I liked the comments on the above article! The leftists are degrading America by confiscating earned wealth. It is an emotional degradation- think of the enterprising individual( a bad guy to Olenin), he comes up with a widget that people like and he starts to get rich. The gov’t notices and begins to take 50%- 75%(France) of his earnings. what do you think this does to the American dream of innovation, individualism, adventure, destiny and perciverence? People will say, ” whats the point”. Americans of character must talk to low info people and show them that Obama is an illusion, that Progressive really means Regressive.

  • Terry

    The picture of Maxine Waters is so appropriate. Her mouth is wide open!

      Always is. And her hand is always extended, as “Gimmedat!!!”

    When I lived in the Soviet Union, a lady had a ripe tomato growing on her balcony. The police came into her house and destroyed it saying, “The other people don’t have such a nice tomato therefore you cannot have it either.” True story!
