Fix the Tax Code, but Can they Do it?

Fixing the busted tax code has gained a lot of popularity and now it seems to have the attention of Congress. Fine, but what are they going to do? Granted, they need to stick a fork in it and it’s good to see they are finally dealing with something important and something that matters to “main street”. But will they be able to agree on a plan or will they nit pick to death until they go “on recess” and find themselves once again at a stalemate? Not surprisingly, they are already eyeballing how to spend the extra revenue a plan might generate and it is going to be point to argue over and could be a show stopper. The question in most people’s minds is going to be “will I pay more in taxes?” and that is something they will have to address for the average American who is stuggling.

But even before the two sides zero in on which sacred cow tax breaks to eliminate, there’s still a deep divide over what to do with new revenue: use it to lower tax rates across the board, which Republicans say will free up investment, or plow the money into the federal Treasury to cover spending.

Will Ron Barber Get Giffords Sympathy Votes?

That is the question that looms in Arizona as they took to the polls to decide who will fill the vacancy created by Gabrielle Giffords. Her aid Ron Barber will likely win this on sympathy votes. At least he’s a Democrat that distances himself from the useless lump Barack Obama.

Barber had hedged for a period on whether he would support Pelosi as Democrats’ leader as elected, and he similarly punted on a May question about whether he would even vote for Obama. (Barber later clarified that he intended to vote for the president in November.) But the fact that a Democratic candidate would feel the need to distance himself from Obama in Arizona raises questions about the viability of the president’s effort to win that state this fall.

That aside, how many Arizona voters will be voting for the Barber the candidate or Barber the survivor of the gun attack on Giffords?

Maxine Waters Wants more IPOs

Here are two ass clowns talking about their bipartisanship and how well they work together. We did a payroll tax and bravo to us! Bleh… now what does Maxine Waters know about business building? And exactly why are so many business failing altogether, much less failing to be public companies. Why the focus on public companies (via IPO’s)? That is not necessarily the route that all businesses want to take. Privately held companies are still a very large provider of jobs. I supposed something’s better than nothing and at least it over shadows that dubious Dodd Frank act. Now doesn’t Maxine and Scott just make you feel warm and fuzzy? Why don’t they just tell it like it is; it rights a wrong (the Dud Frank)?
