    You guessed it: Extend all of the Bush tax cuts. In other words, Republicans aren't serious about compromising. Big surprise.

    It would be refreshing for once to see the pussies like Harry Reid and a good number of his fellow Democrats NOT cave on this one, as I fear they will shortly.

    That sounds like a compromise to me: each side gets something they want. Of course, when liberals talk about "compromise," what they really mean is that Republicans should bend over.

    So agreeing to concede something to get what you would like isn't being serious about compromise?

    Our educational system really sucks.

    In the liberal lexicon a "compromise" is when Republicans give up half of what they wanted but liberals give up nothing. My idea of a compromise would be to cut government spending by 40% rather than 90%.

    So, one side gets everything while the other side (the working class) gets screwed.

    Not surprising.

    I just hope the Dems dont cave again. I'm sick of the GObP/pubs blackmailing the working class in order to give more to the 1%. And, its not like the rw voter has any sense about this. Jeeeez. They just mindlessly nod their heads, up and down, up and down.

    Nope. Asking for a filet mignon in exchange for a bologna sandwich isn't serious compromise.

    humm, so, lowering taxes, is it good or bad because you have me confused....Obama wants to extend a tax cut...and so does Kyle...:eusa_eh:


    and compromise?

    can you please tell me how much and from what depts/orgs the dems have agreed to cut, remembering at this very moment, (this year and las) every single dollar we spend, 40 cents is borrowed, I await your information, thank you.

    So what your saying is the payroll tax reductions that Obama claims to support aren't going to help the "working class"?

    Who exactly will they help?
