Grover WhatsHisFace, who holds the ring that all Republicans must kiss when it comes to tax increases, has officially declared that letting the tax cuts expire is not raising taxes.

Call it what ever one would like but, for the married couple that has an adjusted gross of 50K, Uncle sam is going to want $500 a month more than they are taking now. That is assuming the tiny little cuts that the little guy got expire too.

The debt deal is essentially a fraud. The cuts may not even be real but imaginary. There's no such thing as a future spending cut. I don't know of any federal program, agency or department being abolished either. Does anyone else?

This is a 'kick it down the road' compromise. Everyone knows that.

I made an error on the 50K taxes in that I simply looked at the Jump from 15% to 27% and ran that as a flat amount. My bad.

It's called a rectum...you can say it in here... no need for metaphors.
