    The Dems come back in January and the Senate passes a tax cut for everyone making less than $250,000. If the GOP votes aginst this when it gets to the House....well....can you say...Goodbye House...

    It is all a matter of knowing what the moves will be down the road. Unless the GOP changes their stance, this might be Checkmate for the Dems....

    I love the fact that the President cares more about HURTING Americans who make a certain amount of money then helping all Americans by preventing any tax increases. And then he thinks he can pretend he is for tax cuts.

    Stupid idiots worry more about what their party will look like than what is better for the country.

    :thup:




    No wonder our economy is so fucked up and heading for a second heaping serving of more fuckedupedness.

    LOL

    Jake and the Moderates just fucked themselves royally

    Obama will get his tax increases.

    In January Obamacare AND the increase kick in, the US economy (which is not the same as the Federal Government) goes into a recession within the Obama Recession.

    what would Jesus do?

    A. Give fish to everyone;

    B. Give fish to those without and not to those who have and will not share;

    c. Give fish to those who have and expect some to trickle down to those without?

    Funny, I dont remember anyone mentioning SS. I'm talking about tax rates.

    Oh. I see. You cant defend that position so you needed to change the subject. I apologize. I thought you might have some intellectual honesty and might care about having a sincere discussion. Nevermind.

    I don't care what Jesus would do.

    The smart thing to do is to help folks fish for themselves.
