    Re: White House Concedes on Upper Income Tax Cuts

    There may still be a debate, if Obama pushes for a permanent, rather than just a temporary, extension of the middle-class tax cuts — a fight that congressional Democrats still hopes (sic) he wages. Obama does not support a permanent extension of the tax cuts for the wealthy.

    But Obama hasn't made clear whether a permanent extension of the middle-class cuts will be his starting offer to Republicans. The White House did not respond to requests Thursday for clarification.

    you got it, that's exactly what's going on

    and the excited, enthused and united gop will NOT allow a CRACK to separate the two classes of taxed americans

    which is why axelrod is so equivocal about this question of overwhelming importance to working, earning americans

    if obama does not cede cuts to ALL he will get SQUAT

    ie, taxes will go up on MIDDLE EARNERS by thousands of dollars per year, beginning in about 50 days

    it's your move, president putz, speakeress pelosi

    tick tock...

    I thought you folks were concerned about the deficit and debt?

    Former Ronald Reagan (remember him) money man David Stockman talked about this on Sunday and nobody else has said it better.

    Mr. STOCKMAN: Utterly disingenuous. I find it unconscionable that the Republican leadership, faced with a 1.5 trillion deficit, could possibly believe that good public policy is to maintain tax cuts for the top 2 percent of the population who, after all, have benefited enormously from this phony boom we've had over the last 10 years as a result of the casino on Wall Street.

    I'm for cutting spending and allowing people to keep more of their own money. This is no time to raise taxes. We need jobs and more people to pay income taxes. Not a few people to pay more.

    A budget has two sides. Mr. Stockman knows that better than most....... wide eyed radical liberal that he is.

    I am sure the only one telling Axelrod anything is the President.

    This is no time to raise taxes.
    You are 98% correct on that one.
