    Obama calls for middle class tax cut extension - Jennifer Epstein - POLITICO.com


    So if Republicans in the house really do care about the working class in this country, as they claim to, they'll pass the extension to them and let Obama sign it. If they instead choose to show the entire country that holding out for cuts for the super-wealthy is more important than guaranteeing cuts for the middle class, they'll practice more Obstructionism in the name of "smaller government."

    How do you think non-partisan voters will view them if they go that route?

    Is this the same Obama that gave gazillions to Wall Street & unions, golfs several times a week dines on Kobe beef and has worked all of about 18 months at a real job? THAT Obama?

    Fuck him... who gives a shit.. he's a s far out of touch with reality as anyone.

    Obama will never stop trying to divide America.

    Worst ever, by a long, long shot.

    What? I thought the Bush tax cuts went only to the rich and screwed over the middle class.

    Obama just can't get beyond the class warfare. He just can't seem to get that "all men are created equal" concept.

    This is the usual liberal "Somebody needs to get screwed so we can all get by" mentality.

    Why can't we help everyone?


    I used to think this would only work in 3rd World countries. Now we've got it here, and the usual idiots are yapping for it. "Kill the rich....Kill the rich.....Kill the rich!!!!!"

    Why don't you just hack the rich to pieces with Machettes so you can get it out of your system.

    Good move by Obama. This will pin the GOP trash in the corner, show bright and clear to the american people that the GOP hates the middle class, and only fights for their 1% masters.

    Middle class and working class are not necessarily the same just as those you call the rich work just as hard or harder than one making less than they.


    Keeping all the Bush tax cuts in place is not asking for more cuts for any particular group but rather leaving the tax rates where they have been for the past decade

    A truly nonpartisan person would not favor in increase in tax rates for some but not all.

    It's ALL his campaign is about...He got more bad economic news on Friday...

    He Can't run on his record...Domestically, or otherwise.

    Class Envy, Class Warfare...Blaming, Minimization, Denial, Obfuscation of the 'other guys' is all he has left...HE will try to justify another term and he falls way short.

    His Only saving grace are his psychophants such as you see here on these pages and thier threads and comments of malfeasance, disinformation and hiding from the truth.

    And it going to get worse.
