OBAMA MAKING DEALS WITH HOSTAGE TAKERS AGAIN. I thought we did not make deals with hostage takers? Obama did when he allow the tax cuts for the rich to continue for two more years and he is making another deal with hostage takers. Again he is caving in to GOP demands which is looking out for big corporations by continuing to fatten them up with tax cuts. He is kicking Society Security, Medicare, Medicaid, education and unemployment to the curb and then kicking them under the bus. For once I would like our president stand with the weakest of Americans. GOP is asking the poorest of America to live within their means? LETTING TAX CUTS FOR THE RICH DIE IS NOT "RAISING TAXES."
