Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid told George Stephanopoulos today that any attempts to avoid the looming “sequester” must involve tax hikes.
Reid was on This Week this morning:

Harry Reid also said the American public was behind him.
ABC’s This Week reported:

Asserting that “the American people” are on his side, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., told me during an exclusive interview for “This Week” that any that deal reached between Republicans and Democrats to avoid the looming sequester must — “without any question” – include revenue.

“The American people are on our side. The American people don’t believe in these austere things. We believe that the rich should contribute. We believe we should fill those tax loopholes — get rid of them, I should say. And that’s where we need to go,” Reid said. “And I’ve got a pretty good fan base for that: the American people. Republicans, Democrats, and Independents.”

Reid confirmed his position on revenue would apply to any deal put into place to avert a government shutdown or lift the debt ceiling as well. This puts him directly at odds with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky, who said earlier this month on “This Week” that the ”tax issue is finished,”But Reid — invoking the GOP’s 2012 presidential candidate Mitt Romney — suggested a deal could include such things as the elimination of oil and gas subsidies, or what he called “low hanging fruit.” The Nevada senator also pushed back when I asked if he was sidelined during the so called “fiscal cliff” negotiations, telling me he played the “bad cop” during that period.

  1. Sasja will do that again. I have try to post you now 3 times.

    Thanks, I am POed

  2. test

    Still, some have my email here.

  3. Thought my first post got sucked into a black hole.

  4. I did but fact still remains others have my email account here. This is really unbelievable and Hoft has to know this has been happening for some time now.

    What is his delay?

  5. Make a movie like All the President’s Men, using the no doubt abundant people out of jobs willing to inform on the cronyism, embezzlement, fraud, self-serving greed and misappropriation of funds of all of these departments, which actually need to exposed as doing no more for the people than teh state department has done for the safety and progress and defense of this country.e

    We know we have brilliant conservatives in the film industry. we know Hollywood’s films are more and more out of step with the majority of Americans and the few conservative independent films have consistently done well.

    We need to stack up a portfolio of box office that opposes the false propaganda, that builds trust that conservatives actually believe in what most Americans do while those with poisonous cynicism, elitism and contempt for most Americans, as populates the media, academia, career politicians and the sneering trolls on this board who overplay their hands, expose their desperate fear that if word gets out they’ll be ‘dethroned’, and characterize the braggadacio that exemplifies the true platitude, ‘pride goeth before a fall’.

    If they were so confident they would completely ignor conservative media as they routinely ignore evidence that disputes their ‘facts’.

    They have won so much by completely shutting down any opposing information…the behavior of those who know that their positions do not stand up under scrutiny.

    Until they can shut down the conservative outlets (a guarantee of civil unrest to attempt to take over hte internet after their grabs for destroying, first, second amendments and the land grabs), they will troll.

    Just remember that every time they are here it is an admission that they know that their message has no validity and they will do everything to let out the truth. They know they are lying and playing a shell game and they prove it when they are unable to hide that they want us silent, demonized and shut down so only one message is allowed.

    Stalin, Lenin, Hitler, Mao, Castro, China, Putin, the Taliban and the Muslim Brotherhood…and of course all democrats, but one or two, in Senate the last 12 years. The best of company.

    Their message has no audience if ANY facts get dissemination to the general public.

  9. Sasja I have been posting to you now 4 times.

    anyone :lol: on black hole. I don’t see any daylight

  10. oops, mine experienced a delay so now i’ve duplicated. Sorry all. :-(

  11. Also Cut all idiotic studies on cow farts, foreign hooker habits, mating habits of asian cats, turtle egg counts, effects of global warming, illegal alien travel habits, We can save billions

    Oh also FORCE GM to pay back every red cent, Make them pay their fair share…You know Obama changed the bankruptcy laws and allowed GM to carry forward $15 billion in losses before they were bailed out with $55 Billion tax dollars. They made $8 billion last year and paid ZERO TAXES Union bribery Democrat laundering.

    GE needs to pay taxes

  12. There are more than enough “reach across the aisle” Rino’s to give Dingy Harry all the tax increases he wants.

    We cannot trust Republicans to stand their ground and represent us.
    We cannot trust our Supreme Court appointees to uphold the Constitution.

  13. Offer 10-15% bonus for ideas who cut costs/ waste at government offices..( cap it at max $250,000) or some reasonable number.

    Reduce Govt size period. ITS way to big.

    See how easy this is JHARP ON

  14. The true greedy are the politicians and the parasites who support them. The money people earn does not belong to either group.

  15. Also declare babies born ONLY to at least ONE legal citizen in the US as citizens. NO anchor babies that costs us billions and just ad incentive for illegals to come and poop a kid out here.

    If you the deficit is a big threat (it’s not) then Senator Reid is right.

    Jharp. If deficits dont matter then why pay taxes at all? Just let obama print an extra $2 trillion. Just put everyone on unemployment and welfare Pelosi says its great for the economy. !

    In the words of Hitlary Clit. What does it matter? If its $16 Trillion or $50 trillion ??????

    “Jharp. If deficits dont matter then why pay taxes at all? Just let obama print an extra $2 trillion. ”

    Who claimed deficits don’t matter? It certainly wasn’t me. Oh, that’s right. I forgot. It was Dick Cheney.

    Long term deficits can be a problem. However, running a deficit during an economic downturn is a good thing.

    And you’re right. Obama should print up a big pile of money. And use it to hire people to fix things that are broken and build things that we need.

  18. Conservative Ken, there are MANY, including Tom Sowell, who for years have tried to expose that career politicians can never serve.

    Big government is nothing more than anti-capitalist narcissists on both sides, who cannot avoid a turn at fascism as they discover the treasure trove that allows them to amass huge fortunes, while doing no work, paying no taxes, being immune from all restrictions placed upon the public, having no accountability and completely dismissing any public opinion.

    The only goal of politicians, once elected, is to help populate the rabbit warren of government jobs, which are nothing more than payoff to keep the electorate dependent and unknowingly providing monopolies and cover for the REAL big business enemies, all government that is able to continue no matter what administration is presently in office.

    Effectively the ‘elected’ are just the charismatic fronts that can draw the public favor. They are the talking heads who are the tip of the iceberg that is big business government.

    This country was founded on enterprise, hard work, family, virtue. As we have let the lazy, shiftless, entitled take all the positions of influence in academa, media and government, they have in turn discovered the safeguard for their financial security: teach the public all of the behavior that will ensure that they never again display the character and united and constitutionally based unity that produced the nation that every person in the world could come here expecting reward for honest effort.

    Honesty.
    It’s such a lonely word…and mostly what we need above all. (with hat tip to Billy Joel)

  19. Let’s also confiscate all the ill-gotten gains our elitist politicians seemed to have amassed after they were elected to Congress.

  20. Why don’t we let the private sector “build things that we need” and “fix things that are broken?”
    How old are you? It is a free market that decides what needs “building” and “fixes things.”
    Without a strong, fibrant, free enterprise system, nothing gets fixed nor built. What built this Republic were people engaging in commerce. Now, thanks to an over-regulating, bloated, ineffective federal bureaucracy, we now find ourselves in this pickle.
