    No by giving them part of what they want in the tax cut bill

    Dems Gone Wild....**** the President!

    The frustration with President Barack Obama over his tax cut compromise was palpable and even profane at Thursday’s House Democratic Caucus meeting.

    One unidentified lawmaker went so far as to mutter “**** the president” while Rep. Shelley Berkley was defending the package the president negotiated with Republicans. Berkley confirmed the incident, although she declined to name the specific lawmaker.

    “It wasn’t loud,” the Nevada Democrat said. “It was just expressing frustration from a very frustrated Member.”


    Rep. Jerrold Nadler (N.Y.) was also overheard saying that “we can’t trust him” not to cave to Republicans and extend the tax cuts again in two years, according to a Democratic source.

    The anger aimed at the bill was widespread. As Democrats moved to block the bill from coming up on the floor, chants of “Just say no!” could be heard by reporters outside the room.

    Funny how he achieves that through constantly ignoring his base. Disapproval of Obama rose 3% among the Democrats last week. Republican support declined by 2%. Independent support only rose 1%. It's a bit hard to get reelected when a full quarter of your own party disapproves of you.

    Furthermore, his approval dropped 3% in the past 3 days alone.

    He has a funny way of getting elected, unless he's planning a fascist overthrow or something

    As far as I know the new congress hasn't been seated yet. He's still got a month to ram through anything that he wants to ram through. He just knows that that will make him look bad. He's campaigning again.

    When given a choice between no tax cuts and the full Bush tax cuts, the nation chooses full Bush tax cuts 66% to 30%. When given a choice between the full Bush tax cuts and tax cuts for those earning below $250,000, they choose Bush tax cuts for those earning below $250,000, about 44% to 40%, but there are still 12% who don't want them at all, and they'd support the former before the latter. Also, this includes Republicans, who aren't going to vote for him next year anyway (that's.... why they're Republicans)

    Thus, it was by no means politically impossible to do what his base wants. Instead, his base will continue to increase in their disapproval of him, while the Republicans will hate him just as much. It's healthcare reform all over again, but on a national scale

    Some campaign D:

    I'm absolutely fine with letting the tax cuts expire AS LONG AS a federal budget is provided and deep spending cuts are passed. If the tax cuts don't go through, I see no sense in allowing the unemployed to get yet another year of unemployment, when all they have to do is go online, lie on their form and collect their pay check. I say, bring back the way it used to be.

    The unemployed goes down to the unemployment office, fills out their form with a pen, sits in front of a person who asks them about the minimum of 3 places they applied, and then calls those places to verify that the person in fact did apply and that the person was turned down. Then the unemployment office allows a check to be sent. No verification, no check. This has an added benefit - it means that more federal jobs would be needed to man the unemployment offices to get through all these people every week or two.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    It will not help. They will not use the money to pay down the debt. If you keep giving them more money they will spend more

    the only way dems win elections is promising more spending on those who don't pay for it. raising taxes only will serve as an excuse for the dems to spend even more
