    Obama: ‘We need more revenue’ (a.k.a. tax increases)​



    By Felicia Sonmez

    President Obama kicked off the final news conference of his first term by renewing his call for Congress to approve a “balanced” deficit-reduction package that includes both spending cuts and new revenues.

    Republican leaders have said repeatedly that the Jan. 1 fiscal cliff agreement ended any discussion of raising new revenue and that in upcoming negotiations they would deal only in spending cuts. Obama made clear that he does not agree.

    He reiterated that he is “open to making modest adjustments to programs like Medicare.”

    “The fact is, though, we can’t finish the job of deficit reduction through spending cuts alone,” Obama added. “We need more revenue.”

    [Snip]

    “The debt ceiling is not a question of authorizing more spending,” Obama said. “Raising the debt ceiling does not authorize more spending. it simply allows the country to pay for spending that Congress has already agreed to.”

    Congress will more than likely pass a Bill cutting spending, Harry Reid and his Merry Democrats will block any attempts to cut spending. The Seante will counter with a tax hike Bill that will hit the middle class and claim it's the Republicans doing it.
    You know what they say about fools? There's one born every minute and the Dems in their race to Marxism use these fools daily. You can tell by the posts on the messageboards.

    I thought we just did that?

    Did Obama bump his head? Does he have amnesia?
