    This is great to see the president and democrats finally standing their ground and fighting back against the GOP thuggery.

    Senator Graham praises the president for remaining strong throughout the "fiscal cliff" negotiations, and it appears a compromised has been reached to move Obama's initial proposal to restore the Clinton tax rates on those making over $250,000 a year to $400,000.

    This is good news to hear, to get fiscal sanity restored after the 1st :clap2:

    Obama got nowhere trying to compromise with Republicans for his first four years. He got nothing in return

    He has learned that playing hardball is all they understand. You have to use their unwillingness to compromise against them. They are a fractured party struggling to remain relevant. Divide and conquer is the best course of action

    That's actually one of my biggest complaints with Obama is he was pretty ball-less in his first term and let the Republicans push him around. Glad to see he's finally starting to grow a pair and lean on those pigs.

    As I am typing this there is no deal in fact listening to the cable news talking heads we are now farther from a deal and if they should reach one it looks like it will do nothing to deal with our nations problems. People keep saying the right won. the left won, Obama won funny how no one is saying the American people won anything here when this thing is said and done the media will of course declare a victory for someone I just hope they remember to put the word pyrrhic in front of victory because that is what this will be.

    I completely agree. It looks like Obama has finally seen the light and decided to fight back, instead of letting the GOP thugs push him around.
    I hope he keeps it up! :clap2:

    It does deal with the nation's issues. Obama's plan called for bringing 2 trillion dollars to pay down the deficit, though with this compromise, it will be a bit less.
    Though in the end a win for Obama is a win for the american people.
