(CNSNews.com) - Are Democrats done raising taxes on the American people? "No," says House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.). "We can raise more revenue," says Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.). And Sen. Dick Durban (D-Ill.) says "there are still deductions, credits, special treatments under the tax code which ought to be looked at very carefully."

The Democrats are not raising taxes for you unless you make over $250,000. In fact, President Obama has lowered taxes for 90% of Americans.

And why is that? Maybe because I don't believe in Social Darwinism. Rather, I believe that America can make it to prosperity without leaving behind some of the poor, some of the old, and some of the sick.

I agree that as as countrymen and countrywomen, we have a moral obligation to watch each other's backs and help each other whenever possible, and that you don't absolve yourself of this obligation by pushing it off on the government to do it for you.

I agree that the government shouldn't reward those who can lobby the system in their favor.

The government has a role in leveling the playing field and enforcing safety standards and protecting the innocent - BUT - the government has gone way beyond this, and has become an oppressive force within our society. And it is getting worse.

I'm not sure what you're talking about, but I'm talking about the government's role in the economy, not in the personal lives of Americans.

Do you think that when government distorts the economy away from free-markets, it doesn't affect the personal lives of Americans?

You see, that is the #1 value of the freedom in free markets - even more important that the fact that it is shown to be the most efficient way to allocate resources and thus create wealth.

That key aspect in your individual freedom of the free market, combined with lack of regulation of corporations, has caused the two greatest income gaps in American history.

Connor, I beg to differ with you, I am a small business owner, my gross sales are well below 250K, what I brought home last year puts me way down there and my taxes are going up.

Why do REPUBLICANS INSIST on getting caught in the Dem's rope-a-dope contest? It seems as though they would rather look "stupid" than "mean". Because they deprived obama of his ability to throw more of our hard-earned tax dollars at his friends and fans!

I think it is because they are caught in the Media's rope-a-dope contest, and are too afraid of the MSM's influence on "independent" or "low-information" voters to stand up to them.

If they would pull up their socks, make the tough decisions and follow through, the results would speak for themselves! Then they wouldn't have to rely on Rachel Maddows to give them a fair shake !
