    Its refreshing to have someone care about those that really need a break and not just slobbering all over themselves sniveling about how very bad the 1% that has 99% has it....


    President Obama returns to the tax issue today, with plans to call for a one-year extension of George W. Bush-era tax cuts for the middle class.Obama will again call for letting the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy to expire at the end of the year, saying the revenue can be used to help reduce debt and finance middle class programs like education.
    "President Obama today will push for extension of middle class tax cuts," tweeted White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer. "Will the GOP join him to provide certainty for 98% of Americans?"

    Tax cut don't mean much if you don't have a job. If Obama wanted to help the misdle class, then he should start by encouraging job creation rather than stifiling it.

    I was under the impression that tax cuts encouraged job creation.

    Obama needs to inform blue collar union workers that they are overpaid.

    If blue collar workers would accept more reasonable pay rates, we could put them to work instead of sending those jobs to China.

    Ah, so tax cuts for the business owner themselves stimulate spur economic activity and job creation, but the principle doesn't apply for the vast majority of said business owners consumer base. Interesting world view you have.

    ...and your support for this assertion is ????? I read evidence that is posted in counter-argument, but lacking thereof, I can only conclude it a "pulling out of ones A" or a parrot of something you heard on Fox... neither is an argument.

    Nor do high income workers. Jobs are not created by employees, they are created by entrepreneurs, who come from all classes.

    More interesting is the world view you have. No one is getting a tax cut by the Presidents proposal. What IS happening is those 'business owners' are going to see a tax INCREASE...in your would view how exactly is this going to effect the consumer base? Further how is this going to stimulate employment?
