    The ball is in the Republicans court

    They set the bar for sequestration. There is agreement on middle class tax breaks. Are Republicans willing to drive the country over a cliff to preserve their millionaire tax breaks?

    A better question would be, are the Democrats going to continue to bullshit the stupidest of Americans with the asinine claim that taxing 1% of the population at a higher rate will have any affect on anything? If the government took 100% of say, George Soros' money, what on Earth would this accomplish? NOTHING.

    Are these people really this stupid?

    Good for Obama, he needs to stand his ground and not let these GOP thugs boss him around. This insane spending needs to stop.

    Nothing gets fixed overnight. We have been heading down this path for thirty years with reduced tax rates on the wealthy. These rates have not provided the jobs they promised. There was no trickle down. All we got was more debt and the wealthiest among us grabbing a bigger slice of the pie

    So, are you seriously asserting that taxing a segment of the population at say, 10% more, which would generate about $80,000,000,000 annually (assuming they don't just shift things around so as to legally avoid the additional tax) will fix the economy and pay off the debt that we are accumulating at roughly $1,500,000,000,000 annually?

    All they'e done is created some bogeyman for you to fixate over rather than dwell on what is really going on...

    Come on man...

    Never said it was the only fix, but a necessary fix

    We have had reduced tax rates on the wealthy for thirty years. It hasn't worked

    Why is it that the commiecrats only think elections have consequences when they win, in 2010 the republicans took the house and picked up seats in the senate, but your slimey milk chocolate commie in the white house seems to lack the understanding that election changed things. Sequestration was a white house ploy and the republicans bought into it, thinking the commies would actually do what they said in the super commitee and we all know what happened then.

    The tax increase your dear leader Maobama wants woulld finance the government for 8 days, so you tell me, who's stuck on ideology when it comes to the ficscal cliff. Maobama admitted that the tax increase wouldn't bring in that much, he's more concerned about his idea of fairness. That makes him an iedalog, not a leader.

    don't you love how they try to pretend the sequestration was the president's fault... i do seem to recall a certain vice presidential candidate being instrumental in holding our economy hostage and voting for the sequestration.

    could it have been....


    yes.... it could...


    paul ryan?


    but we can blame it on the president, i guess...

    It is simply a token taxation that would fix nothing.

    The media, of course, will never call Owebama on this.
