    obama is going to come out on top for this....

    the gop screwed up by not agreeing to tax cuts for those over a million

    you watch...obama's compromise will win him over with americans....now he can let the pubs hang themselves, calling themselves victors for "winning" this and "causing" obama to capitulate....just for keeping taxes lower for those making over $1 million dollars....i know the 250 was floated...but then it went up to a million....

    in one year or less, pubs will regret this

    Regrets seem to all that many repubs have had for the last decade or so.

    However? We still have the fight over ObamaCare which is a large TAX in of itself.

    Who says that the parts going into effect have to be funded?

    Or any other programs have to be funded in the budget?

    This isn't over by a long shot. Lots of work to do.

    The Republicans got Obama to fold inspite of being the minority party. Obama held the key cards and still gave in to everything the Republicans wanted

    Republican temper tantrum worked

    i didn't mean to imply its all over....just this one issue is not the victory many pubs are claiming....

    obamacare is atrocious and needs to be repealed....IMO, we need to expand and FIX medicare, we don't need another government run h/c that is totally seperate

    i really don't see the justification for pubs holding strong against not letting tax cuts go for those making over a million....

    not at all....

    obama knows that allowing most of the tax cuts to expire were bad...most economists have said this....this way...he is seen as the great compromiser and can now hold the gop up as the solely the party of the rich....which he has done all day....

    this might backfire for obama (but still hold well for most americans) is that the gop agreed to UB for another year, thus, you can't really say the gop is solely about the wealthy....however, them not agreeing to the expiration for those making over a million does not look good

    and why is obama not saying the dems are holding UB and the american people hostage when the dems won't agree to his compromise....but he is quick to say the gop are essentially terrorists?

    The fact remains that we will borrow from the Chinese to pay tax cuts to billionaires
    Who will probably just move more jobs overseas

    The wealthy won, the rest of us lost

    i know you want so badly for people to see you as independent and not beholden to one party....

    but the above is your undoing....BOTH parties should have regrets

    In other words the GOP bought a small stake into the Class Warfare scheme?

    Which buying into is crap and a large reason why the Statists have been winning.
