    Obama May Veto His Tax Proposal if Not Granted Power to Raise Debt Ceiling​

    Obama May Veto His Tax Proposal if Not Granted Power to Raise Debt Ceiling
    6 Dec 2012

    On Wednesday, President Barack Obama indicated that having unlimited powers to raise the debt ceiling without Congress’s approval may be more important to him than raising taxes -- and he may veto his own tax hike proposal to take the country over the fiscal cliff if he does not get his ultimate wish.

    Addressing corporate CEOs at the Business Roundtable, Obama said using the debt ceiling as leverage to get more spending cuts was a “bad strategy for America” and “it is a game I will not play.”

    According to The Hill, Obama also told the business leaders that they “should not accept going through” another round of debt-ceiling negotiations like the one in 2011.

    With a congress willing to put that gun to the head of America's economic standing in the world it's probably a good thing to take it away from them. It's like any kind of responsibility, misuse it and risk losing it.

    Are you having doubts about our dear leader? Then why did 51% of the country vote for him? Obamaphones?

    How much power are you willing to transfer from the legislative to the executive? Also, I'll ask the customary question of, would you feel the same way if a republican was in the White House?

    hmmm Andrew Breitbarts website claims Obama wants "unlimited power"........ not sure where the words unlimited power came into play, Obama has stated however that he does not want fiscal cliff negotiations tied to an ability to raise the debt ceiling. which whether the GOP wants to admit it or not would need to be done simply due to interest on the debt even if there was a balanced budget.

    Is it Congress as you claim? Why is Nancy Reid objecting to a Senate vote? Why does Maobama continue to move the goal post each time he speaks?
