    It's clear now that Obama has no intention of coming to a deal on the fiscal cliff.

    House Speaker Boehner offered them Nancy Pelosi's plan to tax millionaires and above and the White House within minutes rejected it.

    Best thing we can do now is pass a bill extending the tax-cuts to everyone and leave town.

    Obama basically blew his argument that he wanted to raise taxes on the rich. It's not enough according to the White House.

    Obama himself had previously said that perhaps the cutoff should be one million.

    Of course he also said in 2008 that NO ONE'S tax rates should be raised during a recession.

    Boehner needs to dig in and not go lower than one million.

    I had a big problem with the over $250K rate.
    A million and over I think that would be acceptable
    providing we get spending cuts at the same time and not
    down the road sometime.

    Here is another quote that makes these Democrats look nuts.

    The point is according to the white house $1 million dollars and above was never a serious offer by Democrats. They want to tax everyone $250k and above.

    So basically the millionaire and billionaire BS was just that.

    Fact is they want to raise everyone's taxes now that they feel they will accept it willingly. Taxing the rich was just a ploy.
