Obama seems to be talking compromise, and painting repubs as standing in the way of that supposed compromise, yet this one trick pony hasn't changed his class warfare message since the day he took office...WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama will propose $1.5 trillion in new taxes as part of a plan to identify more than $3 trillion in long-term deficit reduction and slow the nation's escalating national debt.

One interesting note, the AP notes this....
Makes one wonder if the disingenuous group that made the ad showing Paul Ryan pushing Grandma off the cliff will now revise it to show Obama doing the same....? Ofcourse not.The core of the president's plan totals just more than $2 trillion in deficit reduction over 10 years. It combines the new taxes with $580 billion in cuts to mandatory benefit programs, including $248 billion from Medicare.
Also, it strikes me that everytime Obama needs to pay for something, he lays out the same plan, with the same targets to pay for it? How many times can we hear the same 'pass the bill' before it is even submitted as legislation, so therefore no one can read it, or score it, and how many times are we going to allow this empty suit to lie to our face?
