    The spokesmen for the Republican congress have already said they will not entertain any proposal which allows the Bush tax cuts to expire. These are the people who put the 2011 expiration date in the plan to begin with.

    If the Republican party doesn't begin to gather it's shit it will become extinct. All anyone has to do is look at tax rates on this chart to see that when the wealthy do their part the middle class is healthier and the debt is less. Pay particular attention to the rates just before the great depression:

    That was then. This is now. When the time was fixed to let them expire, it was thought that the economy would be much better and we would not be in the middle of a recession.

    The recession changes the rules. We do NOT need for the cuts to expire.

    We need for OBAMACARE to be repealed!

    I don't think it has quite sunk in yet with some people.

    ObamaCare is now going to go into full effect. It's a done deal as of last night.


    Allow yourself some time to let that settle in.

    Here's the great thing, Obama holds all the cards. No legislation passes w/o his signature.


    The BUSH tax cuts for > $500,000 need to go. Plus many loophole for super-rich.

    Horse shit.....when Bill Clinton immediately raised tax rates on the wealthy in 1993 the Republicans screamed to high heaven. Then we created 22 million new jobs and in about six years bought back some debt and actually ran a surplus for three fy's. Then along came slow walkin George and cut taxes twice using reconciliation to block Democratic opposition, doubled the national debt and wrecked the economy. What do you think most of the nation just finished trying to tell you dumbasses?

    I thought the Bush tax cuts automatically expire

    What are Republicans offering to save them?

    They are the same cards he's been holding for the past two years...

    How that changes the math on tax cuts mystifies me. Taxing the rich was a great "election strategy" message. The problem that Barry now faces is that "message" might have gotten him re-elected but that doesn't mean it will work in the real world because it will slow an already anemic economy.

    Bill Clinton was able to raise taxes because of the Dot Com Boom. Do you see any "booms" going on right now, Einstein? So when Barry raises taxes what do you think is going to happen? Are you REALLY stupid enough to think that will create 20 million new jobs?
