    That's ok. At least I finally think you understand the point I was trying to make. You don't have to admit it. That can be our little secret.

    Re: President can't do math. Intentional?

    Obama wants to enact a 3% decrease for the entire year of 2012, so that would be a savings of $1,500 year for someone making $50,000. Obama just signed a two month extension at 2%, which would be around $167 savings for those two months. However, early next year a joint panel from the House and the Senate will negotiate an extension for the rest of 2012.

    Obama can do math. However, what happened is that he signed a temporary extension and not the full implementation of his plan. The battle to cut taxes for millions of working class Americans will continue early next year.

That is wrong. The Republican bill would have saved the average family $1,000, but the Reid bill they passed will only save the average family $166.

    Obama said this on his facebook page:
    President Obama congratulates members of Congress for reaching an agreement to extend the payroll tax cut: "Because of this agreement, every working American will keep his or her tax cutóabout $1,000 for the average family."

    In order for the average family to save $1,000, the average family would have to be making $25,000 a month. I don't make that kind of money. Maybe Obama does.

    So here is the question. They are taking credit for the results of the Republican bill, even though they shot it down and passed the much more anemic Democrat bill. Incompetence or intentionality?
    Um, the two bills are very different in other ways other than the time of the extension of the payroll tax cut. THAT is what is unacceptable to President Obama and the Democrats. This fight is not over by a long shot - it's been kicked down the road as they say.

If he wanted to be able to announce that it would save the average American family $1,000 a year, he should have passed the Boehner extension that lasted a year.
    WOW, I didnít know there was a Boehner extension of the payroll tax relief extension that lasted a year. I guess you are correct. Why the heck didnít he sign that one? Can someone explain that to me or is somebody lying again?

    What point? I understand you perfectly you are out to smear the President, the truth has no place in your agenda. I have no secrets some in the republican party have an agenda one that is to undermine the President and continue your relentless assault on the middle class and poor of America

    Leave it to cons to take a TAX CUT and turn it into something to attack Obama over. "His math is off, he's trying to mislead us..." Who cares? Are your taxes lower?

    I thought you guys liked less taxes, but maybe that's only when the President is a Republican.
