“Boehner and other Republicans have also opposed the measure because it does not meet their demands that it include provisions to create jobs.” I have deduced that these prases end with an inferred ‘for the rich’ every time.
PSST Republicans,

USA tax structure is the fault and an obstacle to worldly potential. Transaction tax code imposes disproportionate burden at the most fundamental rights of liberty, justice. Any encumbrance on sustenance is contrary to equality in the ’pursuit of happiness’. Debt and deficit is simply insufficient revenue. We can nationalize the tax code eliminating all other taxation, immediately balancing the budget(s), through a margin graduated income tax principle.

United States Senate Washington,

To: Office of Representative_________________________
U.S. House of Representatives
Washington, DC 20515

We the people of this United States do proclaim this federal government ‘of, by and for the people’. That, in order to fairly distribute revenue burden, to satisfy ‘net income’ progressive taxation, to balance all governments budgets, and to not tax poverty;
The people mandate:
Income National Tax code that shall use margin graduated income tax principle: Margin $30k 0% single, $60K 0% joint, income above this a linear increasing rate {Income-[$30k or $60k])*(Income/$800k)*90%; 90% limit} . Exemptions shall be prohibited. The Federal Reserve shall amend the (90%) rate, and control currency printing mandated to maintaining currency availability and value. The Federal Reserve shall set the Margin rate value well (>2x) above highest of all State Poverty Level(s). Revenue shall be proportioned 1/3rd Federal,1/3rd State proportioned per cast ballot and 1/3rd Local proportioned per cast ballot.
This National Tax is a peoples tax, no other citizen taxation shall be permitted. Business shall not be taxed. The Federal Reserve shall control taxation. The people will by simple majority approve or reject all margin and rate changes at every Congressional House Representative election year ballot.

Use Linear Interpolation between points.
Joint Income
$60k-yr 0%
$100k-yr 4.5%
$200k-yr 15.75%
$300k-yr 27%
$500k-yr 50%
Upwards…

This will recreate the roaring 20′s just as the Income Tax Act of 1913 did. It avoids the Great Depression by linking monetary supply with value as the only FED mandate.

That pretty well sums up the GOP: “do as we demand or nothing”. Divisive to the core.

The GOP and the GOP State Administrators do not want to pay any back pay on the unemployment benefits (bc they were wrong not to extend in…hoping it would be a back lash on Obama), so they say the states do not want to folks who do not deserve it ie. now have a job. That is a easy fix, run their SS# against the current states SUI (state unemployment insurance) system to determine who is currently paying and how long, then use deductive reasoning (or in this case simple math).

And to think it only took three months and three recess breaks to finally get this debate started. It’s so good to know that our tax dollars are well spent, hiring the best minds America can produce.

Congress collects unemployment insurance all year round. They make an average of about $200,000 a year, and only worked 126 days in 2013. That’s a nice cushy part-time job. Congress is in recess AGAIN next week, and they are going to pull the plug on the heat and electric on 2 million Americans who are desperately searching for work. FOUR HUNDRED THOUSAND OF THEM ARE AMERICAN VETERANS!! They are going to go golfing next week. Nice Job Congress! WE WILL VOTE!! ALL OF US!!
