    White House won't accept new tax offer from Republican leader

    (Reuters) - President Barack Obama is not ready to accept a new offer from the Republican leader of the U.S. the House of Representatives to raise taxes on top earners in exchange for major cuts in entitlement programs, a source said late Saturday.The shape and details of Boehner's offer were uncertain Saturday night, as was the exact reason the president was prepared to reject it.
    The source said Obama sees the offer made on Friday by U.S. House Speaker John Boehner as a sign of progress, but simply believes it is not enough and there is much more to be worked out before Obama can reciprocate.

    This crap out of the Obama lying White House is such Bull **** it is inexcusable. Obama tells you that it is Boehner and repubs holding up the talks because they won't give in to demo demands, yet when repubs do indeed cave, and ask that entitlement reform be tied to the plan Obama balks....

    We are negotiating with ourselves people. Obama has NO sign that he is willing to negotiate in good faith at all, it is his way or the highway....I say pass a tax cut on the three bottom tax tiers, and keep the top two the same, pass it in the house, dump it on Reid's desk, and go home.

    Obama's idea of transparency is "do it my way or no way."

    Republicans have proposed numerous plans yet Obama rejects them time and time again. Of course our alleged "non-biased" media turns around and reports that republicans have proposed little to nothing.

    Obama and the Senate are asses and the MSM are a bunch of liars.

    If there were both spending cuts and a non-severability clause, I would enjoy that immensely!

    So, J-mac, you don't know the details of the offer but Obama is definitely wrong for rejecting it.

    Interesting.

    Re: White House won't accept new tax offer from Republican leader

    What gather from the article is that we don't know what was offered or why it was rejected. While we may want more transparency, we really don't have enough information to make any judgement beyond that.

    BTW j, republicans ave been playing their way or the highway for a long time. I wish you were as upset then as you are now.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Oh God, the crap is so thick here. "Oh no, hide everybody, it's the MSM!" Good to see you acknowledge that Fox are a bunch of liars though.


    This OP is doing EXACTLY THE SAME THING as Obama is accused of "Obama won't take every proposal from Boehner and sign it into law!"

    He's never upset about Republicans doing anything. It's only evil if it's a Dem.

    There will be no Social Insurance reform as part of the tax increases on the wealthy, they are off the table. They have not added one penny to the debt and the Republicans lost the election. Besides I have not heard one Republican propsal to reform SS or Medicare since the Romney/Ryan plan was soundly defeated by the voters. They are afraid even to mention what they want to do to destroy the saftey nets of the middle class. I wonder why?

    Obama was given almost everything he wanted yet he (and his progressive robots) still rejected the proposal.

    Obama and his progressives want everything done their way, and want all their demands met or they will play "victims" of "unreasonable republicans" (which the media will gladly spin for their master party)..

    Honestly, I don't think Obama wants to do anything - he knows his policies are failures and he has no desire accepting any republican proposals because he's just that partisan. What he wants is four more years of lavish vacations and endless rounds of golf while he blames his own lack of economic progress on republicans - which the lying mainstream media will gladly help him portray.
