    The Messiah is in a little trouble here, the CBO, and host of others have run the numbers, guess what, the only solution is to expand the tax base, which includes those earning $48,000 plus, other wise known as an across the board tax increase which will have a major impact on consumer based economies. The dog will continue to chase it's tail because he has no other choice.

    The 'fiscal cliff' has an upside, even though it will ruin Obama's second term agenda.


    oh wait


    That is an upside as well.

    Of course. They have to let the tax cuts expire for everyone.

    There aren't enough rich out there. The revenue is in the middle class.

    Of course Those Clowns in Congress will spend all that new revenue just as quickly as they get it.

    If anyone is looking for any meaningful spending cuts don't hold your breath.

    People tend to forget that there are no votes in the House to overturn the Compromise of 2011, which the Tea Party graciously granted Obama based on his promise to put together a Commission to solve the problem if Congress could not.

    Obama failed pathetically, and simply ignored the Commission findings and started campaigning for re-election.

    If he really thinks Tea Party Republicans are going to bend over again he does not understand the dynamic here.

    I want him to succeed. I want this to start turning around. He still dont know what the fuck he is doing. Watch his conference! Do I think it will turn around? No. Do I think it will turn around if repubs pass everything he puts in their face? NO He is a failure. Maybe he can hire some help. Dont mind spending 100k on a goddamn dog walker. Hire someone that can help the economy, twit

    Yea, you're right. They aren't just holding the Middle Class hostage, they are holding everyone middle class and below hostage.
