Tax Quotations

Thinking is one thing no one has ever been able to tax.
Charles Kettering

No party has a monopoly on wisdom. No democracy works without compromise. But when Governor Romney and his allies in Congress tell us we can somehow lower our deficit by spending trillions more on new tax breaks for the wealthy - well, you do the math. I refuse to go along with that. And as long as I'm President, I never will.
Barack Obama

Here's the problem if you keep raising tax rates: You slow down economic growth.
Paul Ryan

History shows that tax increases during a recession are a recipe for greater unemployment and economic loss.
Pete Sessions

To reduce deficit spending and our enormous debt, you reign in spending. You cut the budget. You don't take more from the private sector and grow government with it. And that's exactly what Obama has in mind with this expiration of Bush tax cuts proposal of his.
Sarah Palin
