New taxes for the new year in ‘fiscal cliff’ deal

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

If New Years day is any prediction of how 2013 will go, things aren’t looking good for the wallets of American citizens…or the economy.

After months of scaring the public of the infamous “fiscal cliff”, Congress, at the very last second possible, came to a “deal”. And despite what the mainstream media and Congress seem to be leading most of the country to believe, your taxes are probably going up.

Most Americans will face higher federal taxes in 2013 — about 77% according to the Tax Policy Center. While the tax package Congress passed on New Years Day will protect 99% of Americans from an income tax increase, this legislation did nothing to prevent the Social Security payroll tax reduction from expiring. This 2% cut was worth about $1,000 to someone making $50,000 a year.

Along with an increased payroll tax, individuals making over $400,000 ($450,000 for married couples) will now being paying a federal income tax rate of 40% — up 5% from the rate under the Bush tax cuts. Many of the individuals now facing these higher tax rates are innovators and business owners who create jobs. But now, instead of putting 5% of their income into innovation, new jobs, and economic growth, it will go directly to the federal government.

And if you’re thinking, ‘well, if they gave in on tax increases for the wealthy, the GOP must have gotten some decent spending cuts in the deal,’ think again. For every $41 dollars of tax increases in the bill, there is a measly $1 in spending cuts.

But with Obama’s recent re-election and all of his rhetoric about everyone paying “their fair share”, you’d be lead to believe that there is an overwhelming amount of support for the policies in this so-called ‘fiscal cliff deal’ supported by the president and Democrats in Congress. This morning on radio, Glenn put the president’s fiscal plan and the definition of “fair share” into perspective.

“40% of their [the wealthy's] income now goes directly to the federal government and the waste in Washington. Now how much does the average person say is fair?” Glenn asked. “‘Pay your fair share’, that’s what the president always says, and this is why he always says it this way:  ‘It’s time that people pay their fair share’.  What is their fair share?”

That’s the question the Democrats never answer.

“The average American says, ‘I think the top tax rate should be under 20%’,” Glenn told listeners.

So 1/5th of Americans believe the highest tax rate should be under 20%, but what about the other 80%. They’re obviously in full support of increasing taxes the rich, right?

Not exactly.

21% of Americans believe the top tax rate should be no higher than 20%; that’s makes 38% of Americans with the opinion that the highest rate should be 20% or less.

23% of Americans believe that 25% should be the highest rate.

Only 14% of the American public think a top rate of 30% is fair.

That’s now 75% of Americans that believe the top rate should be 30% or lower. But remember, at a top rate of 35% — the top tax rate under the Bush tax cuts before the deal that was passed yesterday — the president said the rich were not paying their fair share.

“Only 13% of Americans think that is reasonable,” Glenn pointed out.

That puts President Obama out-of-step with 88% of Americans, yet he and the press are declaring a deal that put the top tax rate at 40% a victory.

“And he’s saying that’s what Americans wanted him to do,” Pat commented.

But how many Americans actually believe a 40% top tax rate is reasonable? 4%. And over 45% is only 2% of Americans.

“So at 40% and above you’ve got 6% of America who thinks that’s fair; 6%.  And that’s where we are now,” Pat recapped. “That’s crazy.”

“But if this is true, and I believe it’s true, how is this guy still the president of the United States?”

Glenn, Pat and Stu all had answers: the media, ignorance, ignorance because of the media, and of course, the current state of our culture.

“Nobody cares anymore.  I’ll tell you this society is sicker than I thought it was.  And it has nothing to do with the fiscal cliff or anything else,” Glenn said.

That’s the battle facing conservatives, and winning it is the only way to put a stop the massive growth of government, wasteful spending and tax increases.

“It is amazing to me, truly amazing to me, how far gone we are without even knowing it. Because the press does not do their work. The press just doesn’t do their job. The school system has indoctrinated our kids so far. It is ‑‑ it is beyond saying where we were in November, “Wow, we’ve lost the public in Washington.  We can’t ‑‑ we lost Washington. We thought we had maybe some hold on Washington, you know, five years ago. No. That was a total lie. Then we thought, okay, we could just make a case and we could get people to understand but, no, that’s not it. Because of the media, that’s not even true. But it’s not even the media — it is the educational system. But it’s not even the educational system. That’s where we left you. It’s not just the educational system. It’s the entire culture. The evil that we seek to avoid is in our own home now, and it is about to turbo.”

So where do we go from here? Glenn is focusing on solutions this year, and it all starts tonight on his first show of 2013. Make sure to tune in at 5pm ET on TheBlaze TV.

    Obama and the Democratic leadership care nothing for the nation and our people, they are fanatical in their drive to social engineer our society into a communist system, and the breaking of the economy via regulation and taxation is a key portion of it.

    Now that Obama has been given what he wanted lock, stock and barrel, he and Reid will push and push and push for all they can. They are close to breaking the Republicans party once and for all, while sewing the seeds of their own destruction.

    God help us for we are in for a rough ride.

    $41 in tax hikes for every $1 in cuts, that is not just a defeat, it is a catastrophic defeat of epic proportions. Obama won this one hands down and will now be emboldened in his insanity to push harder, faster and seek more and more to end the nation once and for all.

    So does this mean that if you have a married couple, one makes $300,000 and the other makes $200,000,they will pay the 40%, but if you have two people living together and they each make $300,000, they’re okay?  Will the married couple throw up their hands, “divorce” and file individual tax returns to avoid this greed of the government??? Another way to destroy the family? God have mercy!!

    Oh boy…do I agree with you Glenn!  I think the American people and the Republicans who are in the White House representing us are clueless!  Some of the reaction I’m seeing from my conservative friends is…”Thank God we didn’t go over the fiscal cliff”  “We’re Saved”.  Really…and so you actually think the bill that was passed to avert the fiscal cliff is going to save the economy!!! or get the Country out of debt?   WOW!!!!   The Republicans that should have stood their ground…caved…and sold us out.  All I can say is this maybe a true come to Jesus moment!  Because this country is lost without him.  God Bless Glenn!

Cry baby Bone head caved yet again to the left and we are spending more than ever before with this so called deal and no deals to bring spending down. You idiots in the Republicans might as well get property of Obama tattoo on your forehead. No one in Washington is watching our backs any more. There are too many stupid people who fell for the lie of hope and change yet again and the country gets screwed because of it.

    If he wants everyone to pay their “fare share” then why don’t they go to a flat tax. X% of every individuals income and every legal entities income. No deductions, no excuses, just a flat percentage for everyone regardless of income. Everyone would then be paying their fare share. Oh, wait, they couldn’t hide what they are doing as well that way, it would be way less complicated, and everyone would be treated the same. That wouldn’t do…

    I do not believe the average logical person wants higher taxes on the rich…..it is INSANITY…Average people should want genuine logic. The press might as well be called the State Press. What a despicable day and time we live in-it is sad, it is a nightmare. I have been laid off since June-I am 60 years old and just finished one year of chemotherapy. Praise God He healed me from this hideous disease but lost every investment and savings ever had for treatment of this disease. May this government turn on itself and snip each other to shreds (not likely to happen). Americans did not pay attention and allowed these thieves to function in their corruption for way too may years. Now we are stuck with these insane robbing hoods.

    The problem is that whenever Obama was debating the tax issues, he would go on and on about how Romney, Gates and Buffet were paying only 15%.  What he never explained was that they were paying that on money that was ALREADY taxed, so Americans got the impression that these guys were getting away with paying 15% while many in the upper middle class were paying 20% or more.

    If the Media were to do it’s job and eplain this to the American people, this would never have passed, but as usual, they were complicit in his explanations and actually helped him to decieve the American people. 
    The Job creators are now in the situation that they have to give over half their income to the Feds who will do their best to waste the money on Crony Capitalism, while the job creators have to scale back their efforts to revive the economy and provide jobs for the rest of us.

    Ruth , I’m sure you LOVE paying taxes right?      In fact everyone should pay more in taxes right?    In your mind what is a fair tax rate?    65-75% like France is trying?   I mean the rich don’t need it and sure as hell don’t do anything good with it.    Lets give some of that money to those that really work hard and need it.    Then lets tax all of them at 65% too! That will sure solve our debt problem.

    The VAT is probably coming. It is a hidden tax that most people will not see so the politicians can push it through then spend like drunken sailors. People will just notice that things seem to be getting more expensive. Oh well, the gov will subsidize those that have nothing using the hard earned money from those that are still trying. Pretty soon, it makes more sense for the individual to just stop trying/working.

    Our leaders, especially Res, do not realize what people want. They do not care about tax cuts because most do not pay taxes. They do not care about creating jobs because they do not thinkthe jobs will be for them. They only care about their foodstamps,welfare, SSI, section 8, unemployment, on and on. I fear for the future. Might have to stop working myself rather than continuing this crazy rat race to pay for free Obama phones – with 200+ minutes/month for emergencies. Who has that many emergencies per month? Someone should pay my phone.

    Government is unconstitutional.  States need to nullify and reject laws not specified by the constitution. We are in this economic predicament because government exercises powers and creates programs in which it has no authority. Government disobeys law and uses media to redirect blame as citizens suffer the consequences.  

    Wake up sheeple, government is breaking your legs, and depriving you of your ability to pay bills (live). What will traitorous officials do when your on the streets protesting?  Lock you up or slit your throat.  You’re funding your own fatalities.

    For all his talk about “everyone playing by the same rules” and “everyone gets a fair shot”, I’d sure like to ask the president his logic behind the govt. taking almost half of the high-earners wages. The current tax code needs to be thrown out and replaced by a 15% across the board tax rate. I make $57,000/year, but I absolutely don’t believe that the rich should pay more taxes just by default of making more money! That’s insane! It’s pure communist class warfare. Capitalism has become a dirty word. Furthermore, Boehner needs to be thrown out as Speaker and replaced with a true fiscal conservative who will represent the values of small government and low taxes.

    My family has become involved in the evil called CPS. They have 9 of my grandchildren and although the father has severed his rights the mother (who they have no allegations against now) must still jump through the hoops before they will considering returning the children. The children are being abused by the system that is supposed to “protect” them, including a 8 month old infant who now has MRSA because of foster care.

    Why does this continue? Because the federal government gives states money to remove children and PAYS them when the children are adopted. Because for each child removed from the family it employs and estimated 35 people. Because this is one of the self perpetuating bloated systems that feeds on itself, the more children they remove the more the agency needs to grow all for the children.

    Yet the children are the ones suffering. They don’t receive services while in care, one child was kept out of school for 5 weeks, they aren’t put with family members or siblings. They rip the family apart and claim they are helping. In some cases the child is killed in foster care yet this was somehow better for them.

    This is only ONE program our tax dollars are being wasted on in order to grow government and government control. If DC got serious they could cut spending and people and business could keep more of their money to help the economy grow.

    I didn’t hear about any discussions concerning job creation during the fiscal cliff by these so-called reps of ours, and all the presidents men/women.  Even O’Reilly on fox was sputtering about entitlement reform to cut this and everything and people earning $37,000 could be earning $47,000 w/o entitlements except they prefer their benefits. Where the heck O’Reilly are these kind of paying jobs that women with children could apply for???
    And what of your own entitlements given by your employers?? Its job creation that builds the economy Mr. O’Reilly, not making it harder for the truly needy. Yes, some people milk the country, but they come from all income levels. Who do you think watches Fox news Mr. O’Reilly?  Your millionair friends?? 
    There’s many things to be fixed in this country and more are added to the list daily including attitudes.

     I wish the american people would just agree on one major threat and attack the hell out of it, then move to the next threat. We should gather all the proof as a collective and force our reps to act as a collective and get him out of office…. Then move on to changing the way congress and senate work i.e., they should have to stay in their own house and keep their jobs, they shouldn’t be allowed to make more than half of minimum wage in office, no retirement, term limit, and no health insurance better than medicaid or medicare, and here’s why: If they stay local they aren’t in a pack mentality, they’re harder to lobby, and they ain’t in it for the money.If they’re away all the time they feel they should be making laws and voting all the time ( idle hands are the devils’ playground).If they have medicaid or medicare they’ll do a better job with those programs. Then change the nit picky crap.

    Sorry to hear about your mother. Just like any entitlement program, there are many people that need the assistance and many that are using the program. It sounds like your mother is one that needs assistance. However, are you aware of the huge increase in the number receiving SSI in the last two years? A large majority, I think like 75%, are receiving it because of mental issues or back injuries, both of which are regularly abused. There are also judges that process and approve all cases that are presented to them. A large number of new recipients accepted unemployment for the maximum and then applied for disability. Unfortunately, this destroys the program for those like your mother that have legitimate needs. Again, I am sorry about your mother and I do not mean to lump ALL recipients in the same category. I, too, know people that could not survive without the program.

    Really?  The majority of the congressional  incumbants were reelected as well as the president.  Were you really expecting different results frome the last congress?  We knew what the republicans were like before, and we should expect the same results form them again.  We got what we voted for… May I suggest that in the next election cycle, everyone pay more attention to who you are voting for!

    I do not understand why there is an issue with returning the Social Security Payroll Tax to its original contribution by the taxpayers. This is not a tax increase, It is a return to sanity. It is money that is supposed to fund Social Security, one of the Government programs that is not fully funded. What were they thinking by reducing payments in the one of the endangered programs!!  How selfish are the majority of Americans, who expect full benefits even though they had almost 3 years of underpaying into their own benefit program!!.

    I also note that the Social Security Program is routinely referred to an “ENTITLEMENT PROGRAM”. How is it an entitlment program when I worked for 40 years, paying into the program, and for most of the time  paying the max required. This amount of money, if invested at 4 to 5% over my 40 years would be equal to over $250,000 at the time of my retirement/eligibility Plus, my balance should have been invested at 4 to 5% after my eligibility.. At my current rate of return, with a properly invested “TRUST FUND”,  I would not be able to collect my full “ENTITLMENT” until past age 90+, at which time it actually will become be an “ENTITLMENT”.

    Tax Law Recommendation:

    Change the federal tax law to
    stop all type of deductions except for payment of health insurance premiums and
    retirement savings.  All income
    regardless of the source or type is considered gross income.  The retirement deduction is considered a
    deferred income.  The health insurance
    premiums can be for any person(s) and any type of insurance (i.e. medical,
    dental, vision, etc).  Lower the taxes
    rates that are applied and link the rates to all federal expenditure levels.  Develop brackets based upon income levels and
    status.  Any income under $20K would not
    be taxed.  All other forms of taxes and
    fees are eliminated (I.e.  telephone,
    gasoline, estate, etc).  The only
    exception is legal fines and penalties which remain at present levels. 

    For example:

    Gross Income                     
    $50,000.00           $100,000.00        $130,000.00        $500,000.00

    Retirement                             $4,000.00               $4,000.00             $8,000.00          $20,000.00

    Health Insurance Pmt:           $1,000.00               $1,000.00             $1,000.00            $1,000.00

    AGI                                      $45,000.00              $95,000.00         $121,000.00        $479,000.00

     

    Tax Due:

    Single                   
                    $2,250.00              $9,500.00             $18,150.00           $95,800.00

    Married                                  
    $1,350.00             $4,750.00             $9,680.00             $95,800.00

    Democraps are completely out-of-touch with reality. Here’s a tiny example of just how far out-of-touch they are. If the Federal Government taxed GDP 100% for one year, we would still be over 1 trillion in debt. Last year GDP was 15.05 trillion. That does not include the deficit for this year and over-spending happening RIGHT NOW. It’s a spending problem, not a revenue problem, dolts.

    The complete lack of common sense is astounding.

    The “normal” American can do nothing about this, and that’s what’s so frustrating! I could cite example after example of how almost 100% of public comments on issues to the federal government were against a policy being enacted, and it was enacted anyway. Obama and his cohorts have ceased to care a lick about what we think. Go ask Sandy victims if Obama has lived up to his promises, and have a dose of reality. He doesn’t care what we think, or how many lies he makes. Most Americans probably think this “deal” with the fiscal cliff is a good one, because that’s what the media has brainwashed them to think!

It’s time for a new party stop contributing to Republican candidates draw off the conservative Republicans into the new party and let what’s left wither and die……. The current leadership is  punishing consertive representives and ignoring what the Tea Party did in 2010 there by ignoring the will of the American people it’s time to change this.

    Yes we are in for a rough ride and it is time to get organized the Republicans have turned their backs on Conservative Americans, it is time We turn our backs on them! Do not fund the Republican party…. It is time for a new party built from the Tea Parry draw off conservative Republicans don’t let any liberal or semi conservative Republicans in to corrupt the new party if possible draw off what few conservative Democrats also  start putting pressure on businesses that have supported the Republican leadership to stop funding them it is time for free Americans to make a hard choice this won’t be easy but it will be the only way to take this country back from where we now stand.

    Obama and the Democrats do not care about America, the people with no vested interest in the country will keep electing them as long as the Free Stuff is provided at taxpayers expense.

    Clearly, Glenn Beck and the Tea Party HATE compromise. That is just one more reason why the Tea Party is out of the mainstream and they must be removed from office in 2014.

    It’s so impressive to see Mr. Beck rant and rage about having taxes go up, without which, benefits for his followers — YOU FOLKS — will be crushed.  If Beck had his way on gov’t programs, you would mostly end up on the streets, homeless and hungry and dying of preventable disease years after you retire. Yep, Beck inspires YOU to work against YOUR own self interest. He really is a genius of propaganda.

    What I want to know is why none of you can  hear or understand when Glenn Beck lies through his teeth. You seem to hear and understand what you want to hear and believe what you want to believe, as if everything Beck says is the truth, when that is far from the truth.

    It seems that YOU are the one with a complete lack of understanding of the issues of spending and revenue.

    I hear what you are saying, but to be realistic, our government following the Constitution would have done the same thing. The War Powers Act is Unconstitutional, not having a Declaration of War from Congress is Unconstitutional, those two things were to prevent war on a whim. As far as spending goes, if the Federal Government followed the Constitution and only spent money on the few things the Constitution gave them the power over, we would never have this debt. Also, if we were never taken off the Gold Standard, we would not have this debt. The Gold Standard may not be perefect, but it was put in place to keep the politicians honest and it worked…

    On another note, look at the left wing idiots on this site, including matt “the moron” driscoll. (who is not posting as “guest” and think no one knows it’s him) After my post, all he can say is I have a lack of understanding about the issues of spending and revenue, yet never disputes my example. These are the same dolts that were crying about GWB over-spending 5 trillion over 8 years, but Obamao is over-spending at twice that rate and they say nothing. How do you get these morons to understand what you just said?

    Those are not my words, but the words of Thomas Jefferson. The funny thing about it is if we would simply study all of the statements made by our founding fathers we would already have all the answers to our current problems. The politicians are not interested in correcting the nations problems. They are only interested in keeping all of us under their boot.

    I realize those are Thomas Jefferson’s words, I also realize what he was meaning. You quoting them means you are saying the same thing. I am simply saying, in my last comment, that the single comment you made, quoting Jefferson, could have been accomplished by simply following the Constitution, as it was written. I agree with Jefferson on most things he said, but I was trying to put a modern face on it and show that following the Constitution, to the letter, would accomplish the same thing.

    use own critical thinking skills.  look at voting records of people like rubio and bachmann and you will see they vote just like establishment fools like mccain and obama and graham and pelosi.
    paul ryan/repub budget plan is virtually same as obama, still adds trillions to debt but just a bit less.
    when repub know their vote is not needed like on obamacare, then they will vote against it as they know their numbers would not cause it to not pass.

    Right-Wingers Who Think They Got ‘Rolled’ by Obama In Cliff Deal Are Totally Crazy

    Beck’s not “crazy.” He’s manipulative. He wants his followers to oppose increases in HIS taxes, so that YOUR benefits can be gutted.  He’s a brilliant, deceitful propagandist!

    Obama and his democratic friends like to tax everybody out.  Obama care won’t work
    our country is already in debt to china. china owns us eventually they well leave us.
    us as a people need to start standing up and say no more spending.
    i’m more for the conservative tea party. tax enough already don’t tread on me.

    GLENN- After listening to all of the different angles concerning the “Spend are way out of a Recession”, the “Fiscal Cliff” and now the “Debt Ceiling”, I had a thought of how to further explain just how (  Wrong Thinking ) can be illustrated. If we are supposed to believe Congress and the federal reserve can create Trillions of Dollars out of thin air and bail out Corporation that are to big to fail, THEN why don’t they just create a (( Massive Surplus in the Budget )). It would be like just writing in a fictitious number in your savings account with extra draft protection. It show how wrong the whole monetary system has been handled the last 50 years. News is just now talking about how the next two generations of Americans are going to be more indebted, more enslaved and more unsuccessful than their parents and grandparents. Why can’t we just create a 21 trillion dollar surplus and divide that up and give it to the 50 State Capitols. It sounds good, but it is wrong thinking, actually immoral thinking and practically criminal thinking.

    Hmmm. Apparently I’m fooling greywolfrs, but that’s not surprising. Glenn Beck fools his followers every day to think that he’s a “populist,” when if fact he’s nothing more than a corporate shill for the Kock brothers and other huge corporations aiming to make this a corporate Republic.

    I bet greywolfrs never bitched about it when Benny__Hill pulled this exact same tactic because he is an ardent, gullible support of reactionary propagandist Beck.
