    Apart from the giant hole this blows in the deficit, liberals should be pleased with this tax deal. For the most part, they got what they want, and frankly, their side of the ledger looks better than the Republicans'.

    That is, apart from sticking it to the rich. So what if the rich also got a tax cut?

    If liberals are mad because they didn't gouge the rich more, that's pretty sad. One of the great things about America is that, compared to most other countries, financial success is venerated more often than not. Envy is an unattractive trait.

    Nice post Toro, but I doubt it will help.

    It really is SCARY to see all these people could be against TAX CUTS for any American citizen.

    I guess all that CLASS WARFARE is PAYING OFF. shame on those people.

    Interestingly, the public is on the side of the liberals

    Obama?s Deal to Extend High-Earner Tax Cuts Unpopular (Update2) - Bloomberg.com

    This is why it is too early to right off Obama in 2012. In the recent election, the vote was primarily against the Democrats, not for Republican policies.

    Americans Support Two Major Elements of Tax CompromiseLiberal vs. conservative/moderate Democrats disagree on extending tax cuts for allby Lydia SaadPRINCETON, NJ -- Two major elements included in the tax agreement reached Monday between President Barack Obama and Republican leaders in Congress meet with broad public support.

    According to Gallup polling conducted Dec. 3-6, the slight majority of Democrats, as well as most independents and Republicans, would vote for a two-year extension of the tax cuts passed in 2001 and 2003.
