Newt on taxes -- Just to keep it accurate....
Congressman Gingrich has long advocated for reducing taxes as much as possible. He views obtaining the lowest possible tax burden on the population as in the best interests of the economy, and the duty of the representative. He has advocated for the elimination of the death tax or estate tax, for the elimination of the capital gains tax, and the reduction of the business tax. He does not support raising taxes to decrease the deficit as he does not believe the increase in taxation will be met in a similar reduction in spending.
Speaker Gingrich supports the Bush tax cuts. In 2006, he argued for their extension by stating that allowing them to lapse would be the largest tax increase in history. His 2012 tax plan has the permanent extension of those cuts as one of its primary components.
In March of 2008, Speaker Gingrich began to advocate for an optional flat rate tax that people would be able to opt into if they desired. He placed the level of taxation at around 17% for all people and corporations. He claimed that roughly 42% of the nation would pay no taxes under this system. Congressman Gingrich has proposed a 15% optional flat tax as part of his 2012 tax platform. As part of this system, he also proposed replacing the current $3,700 tax exemption with a $12,000 one.
Speaker Gingrich somewhat supports a Fair Tax consumption tax method. However, he would not support enacting such a measure until the income tax was ended so that both did not exist at the same time. He also noted that there would need to be an enforcement bureau to ensure that companies were paying the sales tax.
Speaker Gingrich has consistently argued throughout the 2012 campaign that the capital gains tax should be ended and that the corporate tax rate should be reduced by half. His 2012 tax plan mirrors these ideas.
Mr. Obama is a polite way of referring to the 'empty suit.' When one refers to the Public Sector, it's not inclusionary of the Military. Having said that - The military is not paid enough for what they do in comparison to their brethren in civilian government jobs. I formulate that opinion as a former Korean & Nam veteran with a 28 year career in both the Army and USAF Thank you.....
Newt still advocates the same old tired policies of that corporations shouldn't pay any taxes, even though they do consume resources that others pay for. He also feels that "invested" income should be taxed less than a person who is earning a wage.
Its the same old spin. Lower taxes do not create jobs. Lower taxes do lead to more borrowing so that things can be MAINTAINED, but not improved.. Look at the brideges and roads that are defiecient in this country. Look at sewer and water system, or water treatment plants. Look at the instance of diseases at slaughter houses with lax enforcement. Look at the IRS with a reduction in agents, more people are knowning cheating along with corporations.
And given the history of the republican party, when they talk of federal pensions, they are indeed talking of pensions of the military and the health care costs associated with them.
Newt doesn't advocate no such thing regarding Corporate taxes, in fact, its the opposite -- he feels we should have competitive C.T., not the highest in the world which is stifling businesses to compete in the global market. There are two reason why businesses move off-shore, High corporate taxes, labor unions high demands and restrictive Government regulations.
Our current Corporate tax rate is around 30%, whereas Canada has recently lowered theirs to 17%. Get the picture?
Every year, the government produces thousands of pages of new regulations, often spelling out in painstaking detail exactly what businesses can and cannot do - reflecting an inordinate cost to business, which results in the lack of job creation.
While unions and their supporters on the Left like to blame Corporate America for the de-unionization of the U.S. that has transpired over the last 30 years, the reality is that unions add costs that are unrelated to wages and benefits and often unsustainable in a competitive environment.
Unions and their supporters on the Left often argue that unionization is good since it (arguably) puts more money in workers’ pockets. Unfortunately, the corollary question is never asked: What good are higher wages and benefits on the unemployment line? In other words, what good is a union if the union eventually drives your company out of business?
Leftists often focus purely on the wage and benefit effect on workers and all-too-often ignore the effects that unions have on companies.

It is this administration that is working on taking benefits from the retired military. In fact, it is the Republicans that our enraged over this attempt. Those that our retired are completely cognizant (or they should be) of the Pentagons aspirations under Secretary Panetta in screwing the Military - There is two groups this ersatz president has disdain for, and that is the military and the elderly....Wise -Up!
It's all here...
"Republicans controlling the House are targeting food stamps, federal employee pensions, tax breaks for illegal immigrants........."
Tax breaks for illegals immigrants? In Obama Care?
Do you mean Joe "YOU LIE" Wilson was RIGHT??
A Republican member of Congress interrupted President Obama’s speech tonight on the floor of the House of Representatives to yell “You lie!” at the president, in reference to the president’s assertion that his proposals wouldn’t provide health insurance to illegal immigrants.
