    Well so much for the tax cuts for 95% of Americans. It isn't in this budget. And if you are in the lowest tax bracket look for a 50% increase in your tax burden when the Bush 'tax cuts for the wealthy' expire. In fact every American who pays taxes is looking at a sharp increase in his or her taxes when the Bush tax cuts go away.

    So will the Obamanators call this the Obama tax increase on the poor? Don't hold your breath.

    Fox News, Cavuto show. Or I could say I read the bill. Prove me wrong. Don't just willy nilly move the thread because you son't like the story. And want to bury it.

    Or I could simply say I don't believe you are accurately conveying information..... One can't respond to an assertion that has no basis.

    Your thread wouldn't be "buried" because I don't like the topic. It would be put into it's proper catagory for unsubstantiated assertions.

    If it's true, there's things to discuss. But bogus rants? Not so much.

    If you find a credible source, pm me and I'll move the thread back.

    The OP is still misleading... so my skepticism was justified. The article clearly says Congress MAY be the problem on that issue...

    and the president can't pass his own tax cuts without congress, can he?

    And this is EXACTLY why we source things.

    So to keep you happy I'm going to have to go to the Cavuto show and spend fifteen minutes to half an hour tracking it down perhaps longer if I've misremembered the show I heard it on? Or worse sort though the current budget at the appropriate congressional web site which generally requires me to give far more of my private info to the government than I feel comfortable with? You know how much of a pain in the neck this is going to be?

    This will take you to the current house version of the bill. The only thing I could find in it regarding tax cuts before my eyes started to glaze over was a tax credit 400/800 dollars (single/joint) which on it's face won't come close to offsetting the increase in taxes most people will see when the Bush tax cuts expire.

    Is he gong to sign it or not? He's made another promise of the sort in which he let his forty dollar mouth overload his two bit ass. And in his original budget the credit didn't come close to offsetting the cost of letting the Bush tax cuts lapse for most Americans.
