Doesn't appear to be the case because the issue is Federal Income taxes and what they fund.Yes.
Yet, Obama said the extension of the tax cuts were good for ALL Americans. You really buy the political rhetoric, don't you? For years we heard the Bush tax cuts were for the rich so where did the Middle Class tax cuts come in? I didn't think the Middle Class got a tax cut according to the media and the left. Now all of a sudden they are being held hostage?Obama STILL SAYS that tax cuts on the rich are bad. He admits that the Republicans held the rest of the 98% of the nation hostage and they only way he could get the tax reduction for the rest was to give it to the top 2% also. He came right out and said he did not agree with that aspect of the bill but was a realist.
Right, SS and Medicare, so isn't that 2% a cut in money going to fund future requirements of individuals? Why are you supporting cutting SS and Medicare?Social Security, among other things.
And you believe it? As you stated FICA funds SS so if you cut the tax funding SS aren't you cutting SS? See how foolish liberals are?Nothing according to the President.
