    Obama's Democrats in disarray over expiring tax cuts

    It appears Obama is not willing to compromise. Yet he expects others to

    Obama's Democrats in disarray over expiring tax cuts | Reuters

    With time running out and high political and economic stakes, Obama is pushing Democratic leaders to determine if they can win an acceptable extension of the cuts, which he could sign into law.

    Resurgent Republicans are demanding that all the tax cuts be renewed, including those for wealthier Americans -- individuals making more than $200,000 and families above$250,000.

    Obama favors renewing the tax cuts only for those at or below those level, saying the nation cannot afford to renew them for wealthier Americans.

    Compromise to a radical liberal like Obama always means dropping your opposition, and seeing things his way.

    Re: Obama's Democrats in disarray over expiring tax cuts

    his entire lame duck agenda is doa

    except this, the bush cuts, which MUST be extended to middle earners, all agree, including the presidential putz

    and too many dems, 47 downstairs and at least 5 in the senate, are on record---no tax hikes for anyone in times like these

    it is what it is

    he doesn't WANT to touch these bush cuts, not if he can't do his druthers, which is tax the rich

    but he has to, and he has to do it before jan 1

    and he has to do it before boehner is speaker

    can't any of these fools see even a half move ahead?

    apparently not, because they've each on various days of the fast-wending week called for, separately, dadt, dream, start, michelle's nutrition bill (which comes at the cost of cuts to food stamps, in times like these)

    all mere balloons, puffed up and hyper inflated with hot air

    all impotent

    this duck is all quack

    Another Lib president for raising taxes and spending like a drunk who won the lottery.
    What else is new?

    What is new... is Dems are in disarray over it. Remember the 100-page thread about some Dems wanting to break with Obama about this before the election.

    "Disarray" is beautiful when it's the opposition and has to do with taxes. It's a lose-lose for them, and a win for America.

    I'm a socialist?

    When did this happen?

    Dogmatic is a silly thing to be my friend.

    I don't support left wing ideas or right wing ideas, I believe there is no such thing.

    So, I don't think of Universal Healthcare as a left wing idea, I think it's a good idea and I support good ideas.

    Another good idea I support is that Murder should be illegal.

    In what nation that currently has Universal Health Care, do we find anything close to sustainable? It is breaking the countries that have it now, and they are running from it.

    Now I understand your point about government involvement.

    Yes, I can see it all clearly now.



    You spend more then any other country on Health Care, and get worse results...

    Who's sustainable?

    (aren't you guys almost fully bankrupt?)
