I don't see why Obama needs to say anything. He did his best to state in
the election that the election wasn't about the economy. So clearly, we
have no problems.
Hey DN!Why can I find nowhere on your web page the article in this
morning's print edition with the headline "Fiscal deal still
elusive"?I tried using your search with the key word
"fiscal" and still could not find it, and the search went back in
time.Could it be that you were aware the AP story has lies and
distortions in it and while you felt safe printing it, you did not want it in
cyberspace where the lies and distortions could be enumerated and commented on?
The article is not entirely accurate. It should have clearly made the point
that under the President's plan even those earning more than 250K still get
a tax break on the first 250K of wage based income. And, as we all know under
current tax law, any income that has been earned under capital gains tax law
will still be taxed only at 15%. But, I hope that inequity changes--and
don't give me the bogus story that this investment income has already been
The "campaigner in chief" continues campaigning.
Mike in Cedar City,Why do you Obama fans think that taxing the very
people who create jobs is going to solve the problem?Do you want our
whole country to be poor and dependent on the government?America is
going downhill so fast it's sad. You "misery loves
company" type of people have chosen to keep Obama in office in hopes that he
will destroy the "rich" and bring "equality" and misery to
everyone.So, If you can't have it then NO ONE can. Is that
right?Go evaluate your logic and be honest with yourself. And for heavens sake please stop hating people who have more money than you.
Government can't control it's spending, so we the employer will
pay.May our liberal friends get what they voted for.
The president has to continue to try to convince and motivate people to get on
board with some sort of solution we all agree on because so many people are so
miserable out there they just want to sit and pout. Let's fix this, folks.
It is a national disgrace that this issue was ignored for a year so politicians
could campaign.That's the core of the problem here; our
"leaders" aren't leading.Over the years everything from
legislation to Fed policy has been geared toward chearleading rather than fixing
the real problems.And Wall Street plays the game as well, running up gains
based on perception and speculation.The bubble continues to grow.
"Let's fix this, folks."Ok; lets start by having Harry
Reid and the Senate, which has been Democrat controlled since 2006, actually
complete a budget - then Obama should abandon his race/gender/class warfare and
actually propose a solution. But it is sooo much easier to blame Republicans,
who have controlled one half of one third of the Obama administration for one
half his term, than it is for the far left to actually accomplish anything.
The Republican Party can't control it's spending, so we taxpayers will
pay. Then we'll be gullible enough to believe them when they claim it was
the Democrats' fault.May our conservative friends get what they
What is Obama's plan with preventing the fiscal cliff. What's the
budget plan for next year. How much is Obama Care going to cost us? He did pledged (four years ago) that he won't raise taxes, and provide
major spending reductions. Where is his voice and leadership with fiscal
cliff?What's he doing to create jobs, hiring new teachers,
building new roads/bridges, and simplifying the tax code? Why did he give
eighty percent of our stimulus money to other countries. New factories in
China, billions to the Muslim Brotherhood, Pakistan, Finland, Brazil, Mexico,
etc. Hope he doesn't sit back and blame Republicans.Man up and lead this country to prosperity!! Do something positive for this
country. Who'se in charge?
It won't be long now before we get the Republicans lame response and
stonewalling and we'll start to see history repeat itself. We saw this
movie for the past four years. The one glimmer of hope we see is the
Republicans finally turning on that Plutocrat, Grover Nordquist. Any politican
who signed his silly pledge should be removed from office for conspiring to
drive our great country to ruins. But at least the fiscal cliff discussion
will give Fox Noise something other to talk about other than the Bengahzi cover
up they've created.
Taxing the rich is nothing more than Obama punishing the wealthy. According to
the CBO, when Obama wanted to punish the rich with more taxes, it would have
only added $5 billion in tax revenues. With $1.3 Trillion in deficits, the
extra money will make no difference.Tell us Mr. President, why do we
have to be taxed more? Why can't you and your cronies spend less?
Barak Obama’s attitude about abortion tells me that he is a man of
compromised character and that he cannot be trusted. Consequently, I would
caution any congressman or senator from cooperating with him on any other issue.
Pass good laws and if he doesn’t like them, so be it. But, be wary of his
hidden (and not so hidden) agenda.
Check out the link on the Drudge Report called 'Govt Agrees to Lower Taxes
-- in China.' How are we supposed to compete with China and create jobs
here when businesses are leaving this country in droves for fear that their
taxes are going to go up? All the while China's taxes are going down! And
Obama is adamant that extending the Bush tax cuts is off the table? Because
letting them expire will create enough revenue to fund our inefficient
government for a week or two? Our President obviously doesn't no how to
negotiate. Will someone please tell me why we voted for this amateur?
Obama has no plan, only rhetoric, and refuses to even herd his Democrat flunkies
into a single position. He wants to demagogue this issue some more, and blame
Republicans for whatever painful solution is adopted (assuming one is actually
adopted), or to demonize them for not adopting a scheme that will make things
even worse.We are doomed to economic self destruction by the failure
of Democrats to control the addiction to spending. The Republican failure to
stand completely in the way and to allow some unsustainable programs (e.g.-
prescription drug benefit) is also part of the problem, not part of the
Take all the money from the millionaires/billionaires, and it wouldn't run
the government for a week.We need more leadership from our
commander. You're barking up the wrong tree.
Let's try a little different approach. We must do something to stop the
fiscal cliff problem by the end of the year. So let's try three things, 1
- use Obama's proposed tax rate increases, but start at $500,000 for single
and $750,000 for couples; 2 - repeal Obamacare and Dodd-Frank, both have clauses
in them that cause more problems than they fix (Obamacare for instance has lots
of taxes imposed on small businesses); 3 - close some tax loop holes (energy tax
credits seems to be a popular topic).Or we could try Warren
Buffet's concept of a 30% tax of income over a $1 Million regardless of
high the income was acquired (no more capital gains income of $1 Million).But let's do something to fix this problem.
JSBSugar City, IDBarak Obama’s attitude about abortion tells
me that he is a man of compromised character and that he cannot be trusted. [Funny you should mention that - isn't that Precisely why Mitt
Romney lost -- Flip-Flopping and compromising on not just one, but each and
every single issue? - including his stance on Pro-choice? Agreed, America
couldn't trust him.]=============== killpackSandy, UTCheck out the link on the Drudge Report...[Well now, that
explains EVERYTHING.] Will someone please tell me why we voted for
this amateur?1:05 p.m. Nov. 27, 2012[Certainly - Please re-read my
post to JSB above. Thank you.]
Obama has been shot down by the Democrat Senate. His budget had has been
rejected. He pretends that he was electected to control Congress. He is
impotent. He has no "mandate". 9,000,000 fewer people voted for him in
2012 than in 2008. He has lost the heart and soul of America. HE needs to
compromise. Congress was elected to NOT give in to his socialist ideas.
To "LDS Liberal" since just mentioning Drudge makes you cringe, how
about you actually look up the article that Drudge links to. It comes directly
from a Chineese newspaper, and does state that in China, they are cutting taxes
to attract more businesses.Tell us again how open minded liberals
are. Yours seems to be quite closed.
LDS Liberal,Romney lost because we have a nation of beggars, and
takers.If flip-flopping mattered, he would have won.May
our liberal friends get what they voted for.
By taxing the rich, those who create the jobs, are going to pass that tax onto
the customer. Meaning the tax increase was really meant for the middle class.
The rich will always make their money, so who does the President think he's
