    Re: Pelosi pledges to win changes as House Dems reject tax-cut deal

    I agree with those that have posted saying that the Bill is not a tax cut. We have been at this tax level, for what almost a decade? What the Bill does is keep taxes from going up for all Americans. I find it interesting that Repubs were labeled the party of "no". Now that the Dems are saying "no", its being spun as a difference is how to get things done. IMO, the Dems are now the party of "no".

    If our elected officials want to put a knife into the average American, don't extend the cuts. We will remember at the next election.

    It is a semi-fascinating spin/twist that the Democrats are putting on the pending tax rate increases. Somehow not imposing major tax increases on the top income earners with "cost $700 billion".

    By that logic, we need to raise the taxes on the rich by three times what is currently proposed. Not doing so will "cost us over $2 trillion!!!".

    It's never boring....

    It is funny how the Dems and media continue to call these tax "cuts".

    They're the same they have been for a long, long time.

    Oh I get it... if taxes expire... it's a tax hike... if they are maintained it's not a tax cut even though we are continuing a tax cut...

    or why the dem lapdogs in the media have not asked the following obvious questions

    1) if the Bush tax rates (I won't call them cuts -they were negating the Clinton TAX HIKES) were so bad for the wealthy WHY DID NOT THE DEMS-WHO HAD COMPLETE CONTROL FOR TWO YEARS-get rid of those BUSH TAX RATES? did they want to have an issue to whine about or did they realize JACKING UP THE TAXES ON THE TOP 2% would be DISASTROUS??


    2) WHY did the dems claim the Bush tax rates ONLY HELPED THE RICH but now claim that the rates as applied to the bottom 98% are so GREAT NOW?

    Victory for who? Obama? The Republicans? **** them both. This deal sucks and SHOULD be defeated. How about a victory for the American people - if Obama insists on caving to the Republicans for tax cuts for the wealthy, he should at least get some economic stimulus in exchange.

    Clinton's rates were permanent, Bush's were temporary.

    You DO understand this doesn't REDUCE taxes for ANYONE... right? That it maintians them at the current level? How, exactly, is that a cut?

    so the howls about the deficit are just rants with no substance. You libs claim the tax rates cost money yet your response to this "cost" is to spend even more.

    typical washington thinking that has caused this country to be FUBAR
