Claycord Congressman George Miller – “….Millionaires Over the Middle Class”

December 10, 2012 8:20 am · 115 comments

George Miller is giving his opinion on taxes. Here’s a letter the local Congressman sent out late last week to everybody on his email list.

Dear Friends,

In response to my survey , 68 percent of you replied that Congress should only extend tax cuts to middle class families while letting rates for the wealthiest 2 percent of all Americans go up. In fact, national polls reflect the same view.

Unfortunately, not everyone in Congress is following your advice. That’s why I joined my fellow Democrats yesterday to try to force an up-or-down vote in the House to extend tax cuts for every single American family on their first $250,000 of income.

House Republicans are still blocking a bill that passed the Senate nearly six months ago to keep the lower tax rates for middle income families but allow rates to go up for the wealthiest Americans. President Obama strongly supports the bill, and so do I. But we need to force the Republicans to let us vote on it.

Will you tell House Republican leaders what saving $2,200 would mean to you and your family?

It’s crystal clear — the only thing standing in the way of your tax relief are Republicans in Congress and their incomprehensible position: Millionaires over the middle class.

The House should vote on extending middle class tax cuts now – before time runs out.

(Read more about the bill and the House Democrat’s procedural motion today .)

Sincerely,

GEORGE MILLER Member of Congress

CLAYCORD.com QUESTION: What are your thoughts on this letter from Congressman George Miller?

NOTE: Congressman Miller didn’t disclose how many people took the survey.

Be careful what you wish for demotards- the last time you all fell in love with a president and his “tax the rich” scheme it was Bill Clinton and his Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1993.

Turned out that “the rich” included folks making down to $25,000 per year, as folks down to that level of income had their taxes increased.

He also jacked up taxes on Social Security recipients- they’re “the rich” too?

What makes you think that Obama is being any more honest with you?

102 Stupid Will Hurt December 10, 2012 at 5:20 PM

BTW- George Miller supported, and voted for, that “tax the rich” deceit as well.

What makes you think that Miller is being honest now when he lied about who was getting screwed last time?

@Shuley #96 and @Shuley #97:

“Retards”? Nice. What a couple of asshats. Why don’t you just call someone a f***got next time?

104 lol December 10, 2012 at 6:06 PM

Why don’t we just do both to fix this problem? Cut spending and raise taxes? Eliminate all handouts and increase taxes on income over 250k? I think that would be fair cause the debt is everyone’s problem.

@ Coward with no Handle #97

Nope, you are wrong. We are a Democratic Nation. A Democracy. Fact. Sorry to make you feel stupid.

And the federal deficit has shrunk every year since Obama took office. Bush more than doubled it in his last year, and left a GOP gift of a stinking 1.4 Trillion. (I’m sure you voted for that idiot). And it will be under a trillion next year. Obama has not increased the deficit. It was as high as it’s ever been when he inherited the Bush mess. If the GOP can pull their heads out of there asses and just do what American overwhelmingly want them to do, it will be almost gone by the time Obama leaves. Hopefully, Americans won’t elect another GOP douche to screw up what the Democrats have fixed…again.

I know that a deficit isn’t the same thing as Debt. No shit sherlock – but gee, thanks! And the crap you are making up about TEA party being the only thing that has reduced spending. Are you friggin nuts? the TEA party has helped zero.. zilch Nada. Which is why so many lost their seats this term. Maybe you should just try and read up a little before posting your nonsense. Try this, turn off Hannity/Limbaugh/Beck and go to school. Take a class. Read a book. Join the rest of us in a civilized educated society.. good luck with that!!

Nice…..

The comments started on a has-been politician that has never held a real job, and now it’s turning into personal attacks on each other.

You all re-elected the idiot – now live with it.

@Shuley:

“Take a class. Read a book. Join the rest of us in a civilized educated society.. good luck with that!!”

If that society uses the word “retard” to insult people, truly civilized, educated people will opt out. Your credibility is for shit.

George Miller is worthless man. I heard him speak several times and what a self righteous s o b. so out of touch with the American people. He only gets elected because of his union vote.

110 Safety Second December 10, 2012 at 10:13 PM

Hey George, how come your exempt from Obamacare? Oh, and why are you NOT subject to social security taxes? And George, How is it you get reelected when this fiscal nightmare happened on your watch? Oh, and one last thing George, Why aren’t you being honest with the middle class? You know you’re going after them because the rich people don’t have enough money to pay off all the debt you’ve created.

111 @Shuley December 10, 2012 at 10:22 PM

You are delusional. I hope you can handle the fallout. Not really.

@Everyone else…… Batten down the hatches. If potus gets his way, he’ll have us all in chains. Sound ironic Mr. Biden?

112 PinoirDog @ Lincolnlog December 11, 2012 at 9:30 AM

Lincolnlog (24) – I make $80k a year with a nice benefits package, pensj-ion, dental, health,, etc With our second income, we probably NET about a little less than that $80k.

I am a registered Democrat but seriously thinking about changing my affiliation. I believe in some policies of the Dems and some of the Repub – but not the total party line of either party.. Each party has it right only part time.

Firmly believe that the $250k limit may be too low, and think definitely $400k – $500k is more realistic, in that if you have two incomes and three – four children, a big portion of that $250k is being eaten up by living expenses.

But that $250k has not been detailed – I want to know if it’s net or gross. Anyone know? If it’s gross, you have a whole lot of business owners who are going to get lumped into that $250k.

That survey was worthless – there are MANY more options other than the three that will “guide” the opinions to what he wants (and can therefore demonstrate what everyone wants).

What a worthless POS. Thanks for re-electing him.

And don’t call him a moron – that’s an insult to morons everywhere.

114 Hey George December 11, 2012 at 12:14 PM

@shuley #71
I would hardly call the RINO Ron Paul your typical Republican, but ok 1 time a Democrat co sponsored a marijuana legalization bill.
That one bill is the same as the 420 House Approved Bills sent to the Senate that Senator Reid has never allowed to be brought to the floor. Polls are not as important as you claim. They can be very biased and totally wrong. Look at the Romney Polls of 2012 if you don’t believe it. Voters need to actually look at the facts and figures before voting based upon others poll opinions. Regadless of polls, there are 34 States that your Majority theory have rejected Gay Marriage, yet the Minority rejects your Majority Theory.
You are correct on the Irag Resolution, but the Afghanistan Resolution was 420 Yea, 1 Nay,( Barbara Lee) and 10 No Votes. I believe the last time Congress was this bipartisan was on Nobama’s last and current Budget. 0 Yeas, 432 Nays for the house and 0 yeas, 99 Nays, (the Jr Senator from Illinois was in the hospital at the time). However, we were both wrong using the plural “WARS” in our statements.
Glad to see we agree on the morons currently in the Congress. Even though your important Polls show that 83% of Americans disapprorve of the imbeciles in Congress, your Majority basicall put them all back into office.
Sucks to be a Minority, doesn’t it.

I’m for an across the board flat income tax, no write-offs. More importantly, if you did not pay any taxes, you are not “entitled” to receive a tax return.
