    Now we know why negotiations took so long. Just like the corn husker payoff Obama had to put pork in the bill to even get his party to vote for it. We should be ashamed of the whole process. They keep treating us like idiots and we keep electing them, out with them all. But of course no one will vote their own guy out cause after all he brings home the bacon. Shame on what we are doing to our grandchildren, shame.


    Middle-class workers will take a bigger hit to their income proportionately than those earning between $200,000 and $500,000 under the new fiscal cliff deal, according to the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center.

    Earners in the latter group will pay an average 1.3 percent more - or an additional $2,711 - in taxes this year, while workers making between $30,000 and $200,000 will see their paychecks shrink by as much as 1.7 percent - or up to $1,784 - the D.C.-based think tank reported.

    Overall, nearly 80 percent of households will pay more money to the federal government as a result of the fiscal cliff deal.

    Welcome to the Reality of Obama's Lies. I can think of 2 big ones exposed with this deal. First that he would not raise taxes on anyone making less than 400k. Opps sorry enjoy your extra 2% in Payroll Taxes.

    Second that he claims this is a Balanced approach, Really? 41 Dollars in new Revenue, that adds up to less than 10 days worth of spending, to every 1 dollar in spending cuts? that is Balanced?

    Obama is consistent at one thing though, He is consistently dishonest and full of fucking BS. Today I heard him claim he met the GOP more than Half way with this deal. Huh? Really? Where are the cuts?

    What a fucking 2 faced, lying fuck he is, and the same goes for the GOP for agreeing to this BS.

    Yeah, Yeah, I know they think now that they have the "Tax Issue" out of the way they have Obama right where they want him on Cuts, But that is wishful thinking. As far as Obama is concerned this is only the first step to more taxes, and while he occasionally says stuff about making cuts. Rest assured the only cuts he will ever agree to will be in Defense. His language in the last few days actually suggests his still thinks we need to spend more, Not less.

    Epic Failure of a leader. He is nothing but a feel good, Nice looking, Sweet Talking, figure head of an Ideal that people vote for. The man they think they support does not exist. All there is, is this stubborn hell bent Ideologue. Who cares more about dealing a Fatal blow to the GOP, than securing Americas Economic future.

    Obama isn't raising the payroll tax. The payroll tax is not in the bill.

    Sorry I forgot that you guys are incapable of blaming Obama for anything.
