    They should raise everyones taxes. Not just the rich. The revenue is in the middle class, not the rich. Not enough of them.

    I'm sure the economy will take off like a rocket. I've also got some good swampland down her in Florida for sale.

    I say drive over the cliff and deal with it. It will lower the deficit and make us more stable in the long run.

    Hey, it's your economic plan, own it. Raise tax rates, increase spending, print more money. I'm sure everything will turn out roses.

    If you look back raising taxes has always been the tenet of the Democrat Party. I admit there are times when increases are needed. This is not one of them as far as the middle class goes.

    We need cuts. We need a serious effort at reducing waste, not just rhetoric. We probably could tap the rich for a bit more. Too much and they won't invest.

    We need to look at entitlements not with an eye on drastic cuts that directly impact recipients but a look at duplicity and the way it's administered as well as fraud. Obama needs to look at his own healthcare plan and be open to revising it where it can be revised and be made more efficent.

    The answers are there but we need our leaders to have the will to take it all seriously.

    Sadly they don't. They are all for themselves and they act in accordance with what will get them releected. A reason for term limits.

    Obama can go out a great President if he wants to. He can build a legacy since he won't be running again.

    It's up to him to show the needed leadership. Sadly he seems to sit back and react instead of being proactive. He's detached and frankly acts more like a celebrity than a serious President. His leadership has been absent.

    Just because he was reelected doesn't mean he's doing a great job.

    He just outsmarted Romney in the campaigning department.

    Even the CBO projects this - with strong growth beginning in '18.

    You know, for a Libtard you can be reasonable at times.

    Well Shelley Moore Capito is stated to be the primary Republican representative so perhaps this is truly a good sign that at least everyone can get to the table.

    Obama has never proposed raising taxes on the middle class. But if it makes the sting feel better to advocate that, then go for it. He wants to bring the rate for upper income people back to the Clinton year's level. You know, when the economy was smoking hot.
