To the dumb bastards that run our country, and especially Traitor Boehner...
The following is a collegiate level research paper done by me and two others, for which we aced the course in Intermediate Macroeconomics at a private college (not infected by the ignorant indoctrination of public universities, making their degrees worthless).
In short, we keep having to prove that cutting taxes increases revenues, while raising taxes decreases revenues, making Obama's arguments completely false and vicious lies. Instead, you are playing into his hands to rewrite history, and put in the history books on his presidency that, (say with Idiotocracy Neandrathal voice) "tax cuts bad; raising taxes good." Nothing could be further from the truth. We are already operating in the prohibitive range on taxes; therefore, raising taxes will destroy economic activity, causing a drop in revenues, not an increase. It will also cause more unemployment, more government dependency, and it will be worse for the middle class. The rich will take care of themselves. The dirty little secret is, it will also destroy the (already limited) opportunities that regular folks have at upward mobility. Graduated taxation doesn't exactly hurt the rich, but removes the opportunities for the rest of us to accrue wealth. This is why it is very very stupid for anyone who is poor to middle class to favor taxing the rich. What kind of person thinks that by hurting employers he will find success? All he will find is job loss as employers seek to cut costs, and higher prices as employers pass on excess tax costs to their customers, which will now include Obamacare costs. In the end, we all pay for it.
Laffer Curve paper below... (Yeah, you'll have to read the whole thing to get anything out of it.)

The Michigan Welfare Rights Organization (MWRO), headed by Maureen Taylor, has been telling Detroit welfare recipients to occupy foreclosed homes around the city. "You can't imagine," Taylor told WWJ in Detroit, "when we get to work at 9 and 10 in the morning, there are 20 to 30 people in the hallway talking about `I don't have any more money, my rent is due' - three or four months behind - what can I do? And its unreal, because we don't have answers except to say, `here's a list of houses that we have intercepted that have been repossessed by banks, pick one and move in.'" To boot these trespassers out of the homes, banks are forced to take MWRO to court.
Mmm, Mmm, Mmm... Barack Hussein Obama.

Republican leadership in the United States house and the Senate and apparently Rick Perry have drafted a letter to the governors regarding popular vote.
The letter is very clear about the protections afforded smaller states with regard to the electoral college. It also touches on the spawning of the recent movement trying to advance NPV. The letter is in support of the electoral college as it is. In fact as it concludes:
"It Underscores the importance of federalism to the founders and it embodies the balance they aimed to achieve through deference to states with smaller populations and by insuring that the interest of these states be reflected in national decision-making."
Sorry Saul, and/or any others who wish to join with the progressive left on such a reckless abuse of our presidential selection process.
Ain't gonna happen.
