Do the Democrats have a Tax Plan?

Yeah, the same plan they have had for decades. Tax everything that doesn't move and tax everything that does move double.

Democrat or Republican, can we all agree that driving the US deeper and deeper into debt is a bad thing? So our only two options are raise taxes or cut spending, but neither party is willing to make those choices.

I never have really even seen Democrats attempt to lower taxes on the middle class.

NO.

Just like they NEVER introduce 1 single thing to "fix" O care. In there minds things are perfect.

1 did you know this before posting?
2 Do you expect the Dems to publish a plan that the Republicans have already refused to discuss with them?
3 Did you know that neither the Republicans nor the Democrats have ever excluded the other party like this before. At least in the last 50 years.

these are easy yes no questions OP..
"The Republicans would not allow a single democrat to either partake in the planning or see so much as a word of the text. "

So, you are claiming that not 1 single dem on the Ways and means Committee was allowed into ANY of the committee hearings that talked about the bill even though EVERY SINGLE dem voted against it.

"Finally someone is acknowledging it. Republicans are only interested in Republicans."

Dems are only interested in dems.

Reminds me of when reid was the Senate majority leader who REFUSED to let any repub even see a House passed bill much less give the bill to the respective Senate committees.

"A budget? we don't NEED a budget"

I guess you don't like it when the show is on the other foot.

With your PhD in finance, business and economics, how do YOU intend to make that happen?

How many SUCCESSFUL bushiness did you stat and run?

"the other being screwing people in blue states."

All those blue states have to do is LOWER their OWN taxes.

It is NOT the feds fault that blue state have HIGHEST property taxes in the country.

The Democrats just go along with the Republicans on most economic issues, since the Democrats are also owned by Big Business.

A Democrat tax plan wouldn’t be much different than the Republican tax plan: shift the tax burden from the rich to the middle class.

You do realize that Obama doubled the debt, don't you?

We actually do need to raise taxes a lot, and across the board. Everyone sees what's going on with this climate and these hurricanes. Schumer and congress can fix this climate, they just need more money.
