    Obama: Americans agree with my approach on deficit | Political Headlines | Comcast


    President Barack Obama, laying down his marker for grueling "fiscal cliff" negotiations, said Friday he won't accept any approach to federal deficit reduction that doesn't ask the wealthy to pay more in taxes.
    Following up, Obama's spokesman said later that the president would veto any legislation extending tax cuts for families making $250,000 or more.

    failure to address the automatic tax increases and spending cuts could cripple the economy. A Congressional Budget Office report on Thursday projected that the economy would fall back into recession if there is a protracted impasse in Washington.

    Another 4 years of veto's and horse shit and more doom and gloom , what a dick weed .

    Because it's not about tax rates.

    Both the remocrats and depublicans want to protect their spending priorities from the sequester.

    When revenue is down 30% and spending is up 30%, it's not all about the spending. Only if you are an uneducated troll could you believe such nonsense. Saying that it's all about the spending is the same as saying there is no spending problem at all and it's all a revenue problem.

    Maybe that is the position I should take. There is no spending problem at all; it's all a revenue problem. If we had enough revenue, there would be no problem with spending. Unfortunately that sounds as stupid as those of you who insist it's all a spending problem.

    Pfffft...The republicans want to head off the cuts to the pentagon budget every bit as much as the lolberals want to save their socialistic welfare state spending...The sequester cuts both.

    Doesn't matter if the gubmint got $20 trillion a year, they'd find ways to piss it away.

    It's all about saving sacred cow spending programs....Absolutely nothing more.

    Keep in mind when you guys talk about "revenue" on this thread that you are referring to the people's money not the governments. You are referring to theft.

    He's right. Most Americans do favor raising taxes on the most wealthy. Exit polls showed 65% favor raising taxes on the most wealthy. NOT doing what most Americans want would be political suicide for the Republicans. Especially since obstructing the will of the majority would only result in taxes getting raised anyway. So taxes are gonna be raised on the most wealthy one way or another. The only question is how much it's gonna hurt.

    Balls in your court Bohner.
