    Liberals giving up tax fight


    Washington works! At least when it comes to cutting taxes. Hard to believe, but after the 2009 and 2010 stimulus bills, Barack Obama is a bigger tax cutter than W.

    Excerpted from “Liberals giving up tax fight” By Michael Gleeson and Ian Swanson, The Hill, 12/14/10 02:14 PM ET
    A House liberal who has led the effort to stop President Obama’s tax compromise with the GOP says efforts to change the package are futile.

    Rep. Peter Welch (D-Vt.), who just a week ago circulated a letter signed by 54 Democrats urging opposition to the deal, now says the “die is cast.” …
    “Real environmentalists live in cities, and they visit what's left of the wilderness as gently and respectfully as possible.” — Donna Moulton, letter to the editor, Tucson Weekly, published on August 23, 2001

    Sorta hard to call him a bigger tax cutter than W, when all he did here was refuse to raise taxes during a recession....

    Obama is simply inexperienced. Otherwise, he wouldn't be in this fix. Bush was a loser too.

    And I bet when re-election time comes, you and most other conservatives won't give him any credit for it either.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    This is not a tax cut my left wing friend..Its the status quo and stops a huge tax increase if the Bush tax cuts from 2001 expire............

    P.S. - sorry Chappy. Even so, conservatives won't give Obama any credit with regards to the tax cuts come re-election time.

    Yet the healthcare reform bill is called "Obamacare." How convenient for you.
