...when will this President truly reach across the aisle and compromise? This
is another example of only willing to partner, as long as the other side agrees
with him. Congress needs to continue to hold the President's
feet to the fire on specific and quantifiable spending cuts before they give in
on taxes, otherwise Obama will just take the extra revenue and spend that too.
In just one 4 year term, this President has added more debt than all other
Presidents combined in the history of the country. There appears to be no
intention to change in his second term, so imagine where will we be after 8
years of Obamanomics?The President has to agree to substantive
spending cuts at some point, because his current level of spending is not
healthy or sustainable. We can't afford to give him a higher debt limit or
extra tax revenue or we will only see continued wasteful spending.
It is interesting how republicans state that Obama will not negotiate. They are
the ones who signed a pact to never raise taxes! Who will not negotiate? Who has
openly opposed everything the President has done since the very beginning? So
while the rich accuse the poor of living off of the government, they gladly take
all the money given to them in the form of tax cuts! It would be interesting to
know where all these Republican representatives stand when it comes to income.
Most, I bet, are facing higher taxes. Of course, they are looking out for
themselves! They don't use the government do they, and by the way, what
about all of the entitlements that Congress gives themselves. You don't
hear them complaining! You don't hear them talk about giving up any of
their precious entitlements! Hypocrites!
