Sen. Chuck Schumer campaiging on Long Island in 2010.

New York Sen. Chuck Schumer says “significant revenues” must be part of any tax reform legislation the Senate Finance Committee considers.
Speaking at a Senate Democratic leadership news conference today, Schumer reaffirmed the position he took last year before the November election in a speech at the National Press Club.
“We have to have revenues as a part of tax reform,” he said.
Schumer is a member of the Senate Finance Committee.
The committee’s Democratic chairman, Sen. Max Baucus of Montana, has pledged to work on a so-called “blank slate” approach with his House Republican counterpart, Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp of Michigan.

    Mr. Senator, you’ve already got the revenue. Where are the cuts?

    Why is it that every Democrat wants to raise taxes or bring in more income so more can be spent while Republicans look to spend less 1st?

  2. Well! May be, if We The People of America. . ..were living in a Time 659 Years After “Adam” as mentioned in the NEW Testament and The Laws were such as they Prevailed during 1659 approximately!. ( True Historical Facts ).

    But! We are not in that Time! We The American People are the ” Off-Springs” of a Totally Different Century where Our Founding Fathers ” changed the Face of The Earth”! Please Read the Declaration of Independence and ” Particularly What Were The Reasons” for its emerging!. . .

    I have had The Honor of listening Honorable Senator Chuck Shummer a few recently passed years at My Local Municipal either Incorporation or local gogovernment, I don’t quite remember!. . . ( Laughter ) Joke!

    The Senator cites ” the History of The United States” in a very inspired manners of almost close to a ” Preacher Giving a Sermon at his “Private Church and Singings of Gospel” .

    But, considereding the FACT as Senator Shummer is claiming as The Lawmaker from The State of New York WHEREAS “. . . New York Sen. Chuck Schumer says “significant revenues’’ must be part of any tax reform legislation the Senate Finance Committee considers. . . ” is very astonishing!

    I know that Even The Kings,Queens,Failed Republic From Greeks to The French or even for that matters The ” Great ” Britain all failed because of ” the Revenue Issues” ! The 30 Year War and The Inquisition only ended ” because” of lack and dry of Revenue alone”

    Certainly, not because ” The World ” wanted to live in Religious Harmony or Peace! Just look around from the Thirty Year War, Timothy McVeigh,Osama Bin Ladan upto Anthony Weiner and.Mrs.Huma Anthony Weiner! ( as Been Reported in almost all Newspapers, particularly READ the WEEK. Cover Story! The examples of ” their Marriage” is being cited as ” Warning for Couples Falling in Live and Entering Marriage”

    . . . People that were not even born last century routinely blame and accusé in Broaddaylight Real Americans names openly, and The Police Entertains the Complaint as ” Free Speech” !

    Based, on ACTUAL FACTS of the Happenings in Présent Day America where ” The Purpose of Taxation or Constitution” when starts to focus on ” Revenue” its becomes day trading with a slight change of the, FOR example Administrationtrading!

    Similarly, as DayTrading functions to maximize Revenue. . .The administrations at almost all levels of Government without Knowledge or Focus become ( based on their Respective Terms Limit ) Daytraders!

    I am just truthfully trying to demonstrate how well WE all slide ” From The Original Intent of Our Constitution” to May be, if I may be allowed to say ” Private Internet”

    Last, but not least, if Taxation crossed a certain threshold of Percentage upon the Subjects or People! Its losses its values and the very purpose!

    And, I respect Senator Chuck Shummer! But! Very Respectfully disagree with him in approaches of ” Revenue” Focused Lawmaking without any limits!
