Wow. Democrats don’t even try to hide it anymore.
Former Senator Bill Bradley proposed raising taxes on all Americans not just millionaires to pay off Barack Obama’s record deficits.

Washington Times reported:

A former Democratic senator and presidential candidate is proposing a controversial fix to the nation’s economic woes: raise taxes, and not just on millionaires.

“No one is saying that right now, and someone has to say it,” Bill Bradley said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“If we’re going to succeed, we have to face our problems squarely. The deficit is one problem, and that requires taxes on a lot of people, not just the wealthy,” Mr. Bradley said.

The former NBA star, who mounted a 2000 presidential bid but ultimately lost to Al Gore, appeared on CNN on Sunday morning to promote his new book, “We Can All Do Better.”

In it, he lays out controversial steps the federal government should take to turn around a stalled economy. In addition to hiking taxes on many Americans, he proposes a massive $1 trillion infrastructure bill that would fund 50 projects across the nation.

  1. Stop spending!

  2. “he proposes a massive $1 trillion infrastructure bill that would fund 50 projects across the nation.”

    Not buying into that. After all, we found that ‘shovel-ready jobs weren’t as shovel-ready as we thought’ especially when the money ends up going to government employees at various levels.

  3. The AMAZING part is that Democrats KNOW raising tax rates does NOT increase tax revenues. They don’t care. This is not about raising revenue – it’s about destroying capitalism so that everyone must be dependent upon the state.

    HERE IS NEWS:

    George Bush NEVER cut taxes! That’s right. He cut tax rates. Taxes themselves (as in revenues to the Treasury) actually skyrocketed. Why Republicans NEVER mention this on TV when someone brings up “the Bush tax cuts” is beyond me.

  4. Bill Bradley = Princeton moron. Book smart, no common sense. Bill, stick to basketball.

  5. Would it come as any surprise to learn that Bradley is a member of the CFR, cheerleaders for World Government?

  6. #4: Bingo! Their goal is to destroy America.

    Why Republicans NEVER mention this on TV when someone brings up “the Bush tax cuts” is beyond me.

    Remember, Bill: it’s the Stupid Party (R) vs. the Evil Party (D).

    I’m beginning to question how “Good” can be so stupid. Evil has always been crafty, devious, deceitful, and like serpents, so it’s never a surprise when the Democrats exhibit all of these “qualities”.

    But the stupidity, gullibility, and fearfulness of the Republicans is what made me quit calling myself Republican, or even allying myself with them. Hey, at least they’re “good”.

    So was Polycarp, who lives.

  8. I think the heat at the shore got to him this weekend. NJ, for heaven’s sake….ELECT CONSERVATIVES !!!!

  9. #4 Bill
    of course they don’t bring it up. The media are brain dead, and so are most of the pundits and analysts.

    This weekend alone, I must have screamed 8 times at the TV … eg. ASK HIM …. (fill in the blank). Nope, not a chance.

    This am on Fox I think I heard 3 different Dims talk about the GOP’s refusal to pass a Job’s bill. NOT ONCE DID I HEAR THAT THE HOUSE HAS PASSED THIRTYJOBS BILLS, all of which are still sitting on Harry Reid’s desk.

  10. Of course this is their endgame, tax us into submission like the Europeons.

  11. Jim,

    Why is this a stunner? Bradley is saying what the other Donkeys don’t have the guts to say in front of a camera.

    Stop spending!

    “No one (in DC) is saying that right now, and someone has to say it.”

  13. Like drunks and drug addicts, they never even consider just trying to break the habit…you know, STOP SPENDING OUR MONEY!!!

  14. “Let’s raise taxes!”

    “No one is saying that right now, and someone has to say it,” Bill Bradley said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

    Bill…this keyboard I’m hammering right now is smarter than you.

  15. The important quote in that interview comes at 5:13. “Government is the foundation of this country”.

    That’s it. It’s not just that he says it, but his manner and demeaner when he says it. Starting at about 4:55 he just starts talking about how government is central to our lives until he gets to the main point that all liberals believe.

    They have no idea what it is to be an American. They really don’t. And that, more than anything else, is what makes you a liberal today. Until conservatives understand that and fight back to defeat that kind of thinking this country is doomed.

  16. So raise taxes to begin paying off the huge deficits of the past four years – and then borrow more money for building infrastructure!

    Why do democrats never consider the best approach is to start by spending less – and with the debt so high, a lot less.

  17. The problem is the Republicans are just Dem-Lite.
    They barely say anything about less spending,
    and don’t really DO anything about it at all.

  18. Bradley must owe one of his commie buds a reach around, hence being a surrogate mouthpiece.
