    WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama promised liberal groups on Tuesday that the Bush tax cuts will end for the nation's wealthiest, according to a statement from the progressive group MoveOn.

    "MoveOn’s 7 million members will be pleased to know that President Obama today strongly reiterated his steadfast commitment to ensuring that the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest 2 percent finally end December 31—and to protecting the middle class in the process," said the group's political action executive director Justin Ruben after meeting with Obama at the White House.

    In his daily briefing, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney rejected the GOP's approach to raise revenues by cutting loopholes and deductions from the tax code, saying raising taxes on the rich was non-negotiable for Obama.

    But Carney did not say whether Obama would stand by his "wealthy" cutoff line at $200,000 for individuals or $250,000 for families — a response to disagreement among Democrats over where to raise taxes and where to keep the rates the same or lower. Sen. Chuck Schumer has proposed raising the threshold to $500,000 or even $1 million.

    For someone who spends as much time as you do on a political messageboard you are one seriously dumb and uninformed motherfucker.

    The tax cuts came with a sunset clause. What's the use if it isn't adhered to- for everyone.

    Target the "rich", placate the "poor"? Didn't we hear this song 4 years ago? It's old and stale just like that idiot-who-shall-not-be-named.

    Kinda blows, doesn't it. Sure would be nice to have groups who agree with your POV taking part in decisions on what happens to us, eh?

    The Tea Party House won't let this happen.

    If Owebama is doubling down, we will have the Fiscal Cliff.


    Works for me.
