    Obama to call for middle class tax cut extension

    Finally Someone trying to do something for the class that carries this country, in WARS and economically by doing the LABOR and actual WORK...that produces our economy.
    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?"

    Re: Obama to call for middle class tax cut extension

    ....when did the GOP as a party platform ever call for the end of the Bush tax cuts? Weren't they the ones who levied for a long-term extension during the last battle prior to expiration?

    This is political pandering and hypocrisy. The last sentence in the copied text is just dishonest partisan campaign messaging.

    So over it. (And no, I'm not saying Obama or his campaign team is/are the only one(s) who does/do this.)

    My contention Tess to be honest is end the tax cuts for everyone...I feel thats the fairest and best way under the current debt. However, since neither side is going to give what I consider the best approach, ending the tax cut for all....I have no choice but to choose between one side or the other...I choose ending them for the rich who absolutely do not need that tax cut...with loopholes and offshore accts their tax are quite low enough and even lower many times than the middle class...
    I hope that clears up my position

    Obama pulls a string...and the wooden headed puppets dance. Hell you dont even AGREE with it and you still jump on it like a starving dog on a bone.

    While I support the President in this effort I fully expect him to cop out and give in to the GOP and the wealthy like he did the other times. We badly need Democrats who can be the mean 'don't give a damn inch' SOB's that the Republicans are so good at being.

    I am not sure about that. America is split down the middle. I am not sure the middle class is. I haven't seen any actual numbers so i could be mistaken, but the way it seems to me most of the middle class does not like the mandated health care. At least not most of the middle class that I know or have heard from.

    This is nothing more than a political move. I would love to see a president (and congress) who works with the best interest of the country in mind, rather than the best interest of their party or campaign in mind.

    I don't believe in half measures and I don't believe in pitting one group of people against another. It appears, with this news, that Obama doesn't agree with me. So be it...and I'm not surprised.

    My recommendation to both Parties: Either end the tax cuts for everyone or extend it for everyone. Have the courage and integrity to take a position one way or the other and accept the consequences (good or bad) for your position.

    For some reason, I don't think either Party will consider my recommendation.
