Awww........ Are those “Evil” Republicans playing grinch again and not giving the wanna be boy king all his Christmas Presents??? Poor barry will have to just take solace in spending several weeks in Hawaii in luxury...
No spending cuts and a tax hike on $250k+ earners? Isn’t that what the Kenyan wanted all along?
>>So the White House is turning its focus to a smaller package that would extend the Bush-era tax rates on income below $250,000, pause the across-the-board spending cuts known as the sequester and renew unemployment insurance benefits, according to senior administration officials.
So, to sum up, package has lots of tax increases, no spending cuts, plus more welfare spending. And the media will spin this as a “reasonable compromise”.
They want unemployment extended. That’s their constituency. Watch them get desperate now that conservatives have put their foot down (desipte their feckless leader).
We will see a lot of this chaff coming out of the White Hut now that the deadline is almost here. It’s all a distraction and we are headed over the cliff.
The Democrat tax increase on those with 250k and above will NOT increase tax revenues to the treasury or improve the economy.
???? $250K, isnt that smaller than $1M ?
What’s he up to?
Hmmm...going off El Capitan instead of Glacier Point I guess...Pulverization factor hitting the ground will be less I suppose...
Both total wipe outs - one just less of a total wipe out than the other - kind of like being less dead one way than the other...
So those dumb super-conservatives are going to get high taxes above $250K instead of $1000K. No wonder it is called “the stupid party”.
How is this “smaller?” This “offer” hasn’t budged one inch from what’s been on the table for months. Leave it to politico to call it “smaller.”
Exactly what Obama wants. Tax more/ spend more.
‘He is disappointed that Republicans refuse to say ‘yes’ to all his concessions.’
‘He is optimistic that they will eventually do the right thing.’
‘He is sad that they put politics ahead of the American people’
His plan is to completely annihilate Republicans in congress so his last two years he can get the real ‘reforms’ passed.
Increased taxes. No spending cuts. This is what Obama wanted all along. I am not sure why I worry so much about the debt since I have given up on this once great country. These young people that voted for Obama will have to deal with it after I am gone.
How about higher taxes and more spending?
Ok. How about more spending and higher taxes?
No? Ok. A compromise. We’ll raise taxes AND continue spending.
What are the differences from before?
Obama wants the “Cliff” effect to occur. The after all the taxes kick in and the pain begins to hit home he can jump in like a knight in shining armour and propose a “Tax Break” for the poor downtrodden middle class. The Republicans won’t be able to say no and they will then cease to be viable even as a memory of what this nation was before the Marxists took it over. The cry will be, “Obama, President for Life.” Sieg Heil!
