    I do agree ..I agree with it more than the gop plan to extend them...they need gone, preferably in total...but what Obama proposes is the best available...you need to take the blinders off and stop cheerleading for those that dont even know or care you exist lol

At least not most of the middle class that I know or have heard from.
    We werent talking about health care...we were talking about the bush tax cuts

This is NOT a fix for anything except Obama's class warfare game plan, since it takes effect only in 2013. This is about the same gain as the cost of the recent student loan interest giveaway, passed last Friday, cost. No he can't!
    Thats a trillion over 10 yrs and thats a trillion the gop doesnt have to steal from the working class ...get the picture

    Nothing will happen on the tax front prior to the election. If President Obama is reelected the conservative base will preclude any compromise by Republican legislators on pain of figurative death. It's all or nothing. Either all of the Bush tax cuts are extended or they all expire. In December of this year the 2014 election won't be on the radar.

    Well albert thats all I hear from the teaparty types and DPF far righters...we have to cut Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Defense, take guaranteed pensions and take from the troops...then they say..>WE NEED TAX CUTS FOR CORPORATIONS and the rich so they can create jobs....Im so sick of the B*******T lie that it made dump the republican party after 43 yrs...and I aint goin back...

    Its comical you think the Democrats see you as anything other than a dependent mindless puppet. You are a vote...an asset...and with the double entendre fully intended...a tool.

    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?"


    Obama to call for middle class tax cut extension
    Big deal, frankly. So people making $249,000 won't have to pay more taxes and we call it a victory for the middle class. He's lookin' out for the working man. If he had raised taxes on the true middle class in this country, it would have spelled certain defeat in November. To extend the cuts on up to $250K isn't serving the country well. At all. Oh, and it still has to pass Congress. Unless he's become a dictator and I missed the memo...
