Obama needs to amend his attacks on "Millionaires and Billionaires" who
he thinks are not paying their "fair share" to include
"Thousandaires".At least then his rhetoric would match his
demands to jack up taxes on everyone making over $200K.
Boehner and the House GOP don't have the votes necessary to over ride a
veto. -- not by a "million".The President has the
upper-hand and a mandate.Whatever the House GOP can't get
passed now, will be even less with the new Congress come January.
It seems like a few weeks ago Democrats were calling for compromise. Well....it
is now your turn. Are you going to demand that Obama compromise? So far he is
unwilling to compromise.
GOP continues to placate it's party instead of serving the people.
They're playing politics. We should start to refer to Boehner as Nero
while the tinders of our economy start to glow.
There is no sense in this blame game. It is not the fault of republicans or
democrats that we are caught in this mess. The problem is that the country
itself is deeply divided along ideological lines. Nearly half want smaller
government and lower taxes. The other half want higher taxes and a welfare
state. One philosophy controls the House, the other the Senate and executive.
The sides are drawing apart ideologically - not closer. The tea party is
evidence of that radicalization. There may not be middle ground that could pass
both houses and get the President's signature. Meanwhile our debt is
spiraling out of control and sanity seems to have fled the capital. I fear that
a major financial collapse may not be far away.
@RedShirt"Are you going to demand that Obama compromise? So far he is
unwilling to compromise."Are you kidding me? Obama offered
chained CPI on social security, something Democrats strongly oppose. He
absolutely is compromising, more than liberals want actually.
Re: "Obama . . . absolutely is compromising, more than liberals want
actually."That ain't saying much.The President
and Congressional liberals are demanding a "solution" that is
acknowledged to be absolutely unsustainable and appears calculated to cripple
the American economy at a time it's weaker than it has been since 1929.It's hard to comprehend how they figure to profit from such lunacy,
but like a one-trick-pony, they'll undoubtedly try their old fallback --
it's all Bush's fault.Listening to them, you'd think
George Bush has been president for the last four years.
@procuradorfiscalOh, so now cutting deficits cripples the economy? You all
don't even know what you want, you just hate Obama, and that hate has
blinded you to reason.
To "atl134" so you are saying that Obama will not compromise any more,
nor will you demand that he compromise any more. You are going to insist that
it is Obama's way or nothing.
Re: "Oh, so now cutting deficits cripples the economy?"It
sure does, if the proposed "deficit cutting" cuts so little from the
deficit that it amounts to nothing more than imperceptibly less-deranged liberal
debt escalation, acquiescing in the Obama regime's racking up new debt to
the tune of $4-8 trillion over the next few years.Which is exactly
what this "compromise" will do.It's a liberal
"balanced approach" at its best -- balancing the Nation's economy
on the edge of a real economic cliff, not the phony one they've been
bleating about for the last few weeks.
This time next year, we'll be at least eighteen trillion in the hole.Greed, corruption, and lying caused this mess.
Just run the country like we have to run our homes. the solution to our problems
could easily be solved by the average American householder. Do not get
yourselves into a position where you can not pay your debts. We are
there and we are saddling our children with an impossible financial problem. It
is a no brainer. Obama and of his followers refuse to talk about it, he is in
total denial, like many of his followers are. We are becomming a nation of free
loaders. Yes, he is fundamentally changing America.
As a football team reflects its coach.So do our people reflect
Obama. Let's get those rich people!
