Obama says he has a mandate to raise taxes. Two recent polling firms (Gallup was one) polled voters and they said they are not in favor of raising taxes and they are in favor of cutting spending.
The media is spreading the lie that we would help 98% of the people from getting taxes raised. It's a lie. It's not 98% and includes all small businesses (employers). Tax them and we have job losses. If the economy tanks even more (Obamacare alone is forcing small businesses to cut hours), the House will be blamed NOT Obama. The perception created by the media just prior to the presidential election is that Bush was responsible for the bad economy. So you can bet that if the tax rates go up on all businesses and the economy tanks even more because Dems refuse to cut spending (tax more spend more; US Treasurer says no caps on debt ceiling) it will be blamed on Congress NOT Obama!!!!
The House wants to modify the tax structure to get of loop holes that affect employees more so that small businesses. They have small businesses and jobs kept in mine.
It's the Dem's that are not willing to budge. They want the tax hike now and "claim" they will look at spending cuts later (like never; just like they always did). The tax hike is the ONLY thing Congress has as a bargaining chip. Give them what they will not do anything for Congress later.
The media wants us to believe that it's Congress who is not budging when in reality if you read what the Dems are saying they only want the hike and nothing else.
Please email your conservative news stations. We need the truth out. We should not let the media dominate the news. We should call them out and let a number of people (even on our side) know what the truth is. Trust me, some of them are still clueless and let the media rule their decisions some.
The GOP should not give in to these crazy demands
stop the SCM from directing the discussion....
“Stop the Media from Lying About the Fiscal Cliff,”
That is like asking the sun not to shine. When it happens, it will be the end of the world and it won’t matter anymore.
Obama and the Democrats will be blamed for Obamacare and more and more for the general economy as the second term gets underway. But Republicans need to vote on the economy in 2014. They didn’t three weeks ago or he wouldn’t have won.
Obama is not a leader, he is an agitator.
I see you hit post twice, which one will be locked?
anna, whining about the media is a popular emotional ritual here and on talk radio but it never won a single battle against Dems.
I been posting over and over here the past week or so,
the Republicans in congress have to quit acting stupid and fight just like Dems do, to win.
First thing, is pass an extension of the tax cuts for just the first $250K of income in the House and send it to the Senate and then go on all TV stations saying that you protected the middle class, crisis over.
The reason why Obama can get away with claiming that Rs are holding the middle class hostage to the rich is that they (Republicans) actually think that them holding back on passing those specific tax cuts by themselves is a chip in their favor to use against O. This is utterly stupid thinking and it is EXACTLY what Obama wants them to do.
Then make a commercial with all the clips of Dems calling for us to go over the cliff and use it to crush Dems with in January, and repeat their words on all the talk shows. 'Dems want us to go over, they keep saying it'
Jeeze, why are Dems such strategic fighters and Rs such a pathetic losers?
FIGHT LIKE DEMS DO, TO WIN!
Here's an analysis
Why Republicans lose here (see #19)
I don’t know the idiot that came up with the fiscal cliff in the first place....they never say what it is, just that we are heading for it.....BS without any meaning...is it 50 foot deep or 7 inches and whats at the bottom of it and what vehicle is going off said cliff....nuts to all of it...
The MSM is as out of control as the Dims - how do you stop them without violence?
