Obama: GOP´s insistence on
halting tax hikes for the
wealthy is stopping fiscal
cliff deal

NBC News, by Carrie Dann

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/30/2012 10:32:52 AM

President Barack Obama on Sunday said congressional Republicans and their insistence on preventing tax increases for the very wealthy are standing in the way of a deal to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. In an exclusive interview on NBC´s "Meet the Press," the president chided House Republicans as the clock continued to run out on a potential agreement. "They say that their biggest priority is making sure that we deal with the deficit in a serious way, but the way they´re behaving is that their only priority is making sure that tax breaks for the wealthiest

If NBC weren´t this stupid, they would have countered with " how can you explain the millions that you got out of these millionares and billionares for your campaign?". Hypocrites, all of them.

Socking it to the rich is a diversion from the real issue - the debt will crush us and leave the country as we know it in ruins. Then, it´s the despots.

Obama lies. The Democrats have never shown any willingness to compromise, any more than the Republicans. And where has he been all this time, until right on the verge of the deadline, to try to broker an agreement? The whole bunch up there need to be fired for incompetence and dereliction of duty (including Zero).

And not cutting any free Obama-bucks spending is the top priority of the Administration. They haven´t passed a budget in three years because, in the word of Harry Reid, it wouldn´t be politically favorable to Democrars. Screw them. No deal.

Pardon my French but this is f****** bull crap. He has taken a $160 bill deficit he inherited from W and raised it to $1600 bill. Expense savings plans (that´s only plans not actual) total to $38bill. And he is talking about tax rates. This is truly disgusting and utterly risible.

First off our

The headline could just as easily have read, "Obama´s insistence on taxing the job creators is stopping the fiscal cliff deal". But the media is setting up to blame the Republicans and specifically the tea party for the impasse.

I dont have high expectation for )bama or for the MSM so I find this a bit boring as it is predictable. And I dont expect truth and substance from either.

If the Repugs want to continue as a viable political party they need to take a moral stand on deficit spending. They have failed miserably in the past and have no relevance today if they do not.

Wait a minute, the deal was approved by Congress and signed by the president. It calls for taxes to go up for everyone and spending to go down a tiny little bit. All that´s happening now is that the Democrats want a new deal. All you Republicans stand up and say, "We are not changing the deal you voted for and signed." People who stopped looking for work won´t pay taxes. But we don´t have to pay them extended unemployment insurance or low income tax credits.

Let me get this straight. If Obama can´t tax the rich he will tax everyone. Yeah this is typical Dem/commie logic. And the left believes he is looking out for them.
Note to Repubs . send bill over to the senate raising taxes on the rich but also include a tax cut measure for the middle class below what is in the bush tax plan. See how fast they turn that down. But I don´t believe the Repubs have the sense or guts to do this

Boehner should simply state, "Obama wants spending increases that amount to more than what is projected to be received from the top 2% he demands pay more."

It´s obvious the president isn´t serious about reducing the deficit, or paying down our national debt. And that tax increase on the top 2% would only cover about 8 days worth of Obama gov´t spending.

Obama is truly a demogogue extraordiaire. Boehner has already indicated the tax on the wealthy that Republicans are ready to reluctantly accept even though Obama has no iterest in really cutting the spending. If only a majority of Americans realized that we are a bankrupt country and Obama is making the possibility of recovery more difficult by the day. One day, this will all explode and, of course, Obama and the press will loudly proclaim it is the Republicans fault. We the people has become, we the government and it appears that is all that matters to this president.

Let us go over the "cliff". Let everyone feel the APIn zippy and the Dems are causing.

Then, elect a new House Speaker in January who has some cojones.

Then pass a tax reform bill that changes the tax system to something less complex, lower and more fair.

Then let the Dems and zippy veto it.

Think back to 1997, when Nancy Pelosi led an all Democrat contingent onto the Capitol steps to protest Republican effort to impeach Bill Clinton. Since media loved BJ, the demonstration received big press coverage. While press coverage for a Republican event will be far less than today´s NFL scores, the Senate and House Republicans need to do the same today or Monday morning. Will hopefully produce a unified response of "it´s better to go off a relatively small fiscal cliff today than to push our children off an enormous one in 3 to 5 years." Such a protest would surely lead the Congressional Black Caucus to claim "those racist Republican Tea Baggers spit on us".

Given the circumstances and the well-orchestrated public relations trap that Obama is setting for them, Republicans should turn the table on Progressives and out-trump them by proposing even higher taxes on the very wealthy than Democrats are demanding. We all know that top earners can afford it or will find loopholes to avoid the additional hit on their incomes.

Afterwards, when even the “low-information” public is forced to acknowledge that Obama got even more than he wanted and the economy remains flat, or worse, goes into another recession and is hit with another credit downgrade because of continued reckless borrowing and spending, Obama and his Democrat cronies will get the blame they deserve the next couple of election cycles. Republicans can then begin to repair the damage Democrats have wrought.

We can’t possibly tax our existing earner-base enough to achieve national prosperity. Our government has to grow our economy by fostering a business environment that Obama disdains in which investors have sufficient motivation to fund the expansion of existing domestic business and lend to entrepreneurs to create new private sector jobs in the U.S.

Go ahead and increase taxes on millionaires. They all support scumbama anyway. But it´s pointless, since millionaires don´t actually have earned income.

Enjoy the brown banana, America. No, that´s not a scumbama joke. Look up Dominic Flandry:

"The Empire is currently in the early stages of decadence, which is the most
agreeable time to inhabit: peace and pleasure, and the society not yet rotted so
far that chaos sets in. One might say the Empire is a banana just starting to
show brown spots."

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Vice President Joe Biden really did get ahead of President Barack Obama on accepting gay marriage in 2012 — and the White House really wasn’t happy about it, despite the two leaders’ many attempts to claim otherwise. That’s the story laid out in Jo Becker’s new book, “Forcing the Spring,” which documents the past few years of successful efforts to expand the legalization of gay marriage, according to an advance copy obtained by POLITICO. Speculation that Biden’s comments on “Meet the Press” in May 2012 were meant as a trial balloon, Becker writes, came from people “not privy to the

Asked in an interview with CBS News about a Russian fighter buzzing a U.S. Navy ship in the Black Sea on Saturday, Obama said, “They’re not interested in any kind of military confrontation with us, understanding that our conventional forces are significantly superior to the Russians.” Obama accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of being behind uprisings in Ukraine in which government buildings have been taken over.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
