President Obama to Call for Deal
on Tax Cuts, Argue that Impact
on Economy for Tax Increases on
Wealthy Will Be Minimal

ABC News, by Jake Tapper

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/9/2012 12:56:57 PM

President Obama will today call upon Congress to work with him on preserving the lower tax rates first pushed by President Bush for those Americans who earn under $200,000 a year, but he will state his belief that voters were clear in re-electing him that they support a “balanced approach” to deficit reduction — meaning that the lower tax rates for higher wage earners should expire. The president, aides tell ABC News, will argue that the tax cuts for the middle class are something everyone agrees on, so there’s no reason for them

I'm not holding my breath that 0bama is suddenly willing to cooperate.

Agree. Oppose everything he asks for. Let's see what kind of fortitude Boehner and McConnell have. Let's do to Obama what Harry Reid bragged he would have done to Romney when Romney was up in the polls. We will win the mid-terms and Barry will become a "lame duck".

"The president will note that the CBO report states that most of the impact of the tax cuts relates to those wage-earners who make less than $200,000 a year. Extending all the Bush-initiated lower rates would boost GDP by 1.4% and help create 1.8 million jobs................."

But I thought Bush ruined the economy? Isn't that what Obama said, it was all President Bush's fault. Now if they let the Bush tax cuts expire then what?

Heard Chuck U. Schumer this morning explaining the 'myth' of increased revenues through lower rates. His 'explanation' consisted of various 'appeals to authority' and a list of admonitions pointing out that he cares more than you do.

No thinking.

Only emotional preaching, pandering and punishing.

Why is it that those who are so rabid to spend public money refuse to understand how revenue is actually generated ?

This is not a matter of opinion.

The record is clear.

Why should only a few Americans suffer? Why not all Americans. We are all in this together. Taxing the 'rich' will not solve our problem. It will not even slow down the inevitable. I’m sure the Rebublicans will cave but honestly, let all Americans feel the pain of Obambi’s spend. Class warfare isn't the answer. Shared suffering for our poor collective decisions is.

Republicans gave blacks the right to vote and freed the slaves, but do the majority vote republican? NO! Because the RATs buy their vote. Reagan gave Hispanics amnest py in the 80s. Do the majority of them vote republican? NO? Because the RATs give them free stuff. We control the purse strings and we aren't going to get their vote any way, so should off the spigot because if we give them amnesty, it will give the RATs more votes.

The "wealthy" don't have enough money combined to make a tiny dent in the deficit for even a month. There will be a massive exodus of money and corporations out of the USA. He will then blame them again, and again, but nothing will change until he's removed from office.

Why do Democrats and journalists continue to call extending existing rates “cuts”?

Why does -0-bama get to keep saying he “cut taxes” for the middle class simply by agreeing to extend rates put in place by his predecessor?

How is it that the “unfunded Bush tax cuts” can be used as a weapon against the GOP as the “policies that got us into this mess”, and at the same time constitute -0-bama’s signature achievement of “tax relief for the middle class”?

Why is it that extending rates for top earners having a projected “minimal” positive effect on economic growth a reason for NOT DOING IT? Why would anyone agree to raise taxes on the wealthy when their own projections indicate a negative effect on the economy - however small?

If the GOP refuses to raise taxes on the rich, any subsequent bad things that happen will be blamed on the GOP. If the GOP goes along with the tax increase (tax rates can be fixed later) the bad things that follow can be blamed on the tax increase and the Democrats.

The only way the GOP loses in this approach is if raising taxes on the rich makes the economy grow. Raise you hands if you think this is possible.

The Democrats MUST own any disasters that follow this election!!

The GOP can't stop the spending. The deficits will only go on. GOP opposition to taxes has allowed Americans to think there is no cost to this ruin. Maybe taxes should be raised on voters so they feel the pain of ruin.

The GOP has no power on this. All they can do is make their displeasure known, explain how Obama is hurting the economy and the middle class and then make sure he gets the blame when it all comes down. The Democrats do NOT like responsibility. They were very unhappy that they won Obamacare without a single Republican vote. Their media booty lickers have been busted saying it was bi-partisan, but only if you count an independent or Socialist that might have been thrown in. Not a single Republican can be saddled with the responsibility of the tax assault that Obamacare will cause.

We have very little in our arsenal, frankly, but one of the best things we have is forcing them to take responsibility for their actions.

You see, taking money out of the economy through taxation, then giving that money to your cronies and contributors puts the money back into the economy! So it is a net increase in the economy, because the government couldn't put money into the economy before they took it out of the economy and now they can--so it's good for the economy. /s

My co-worker actually thinks by raising taxes it helps produce jobs..... Last week 8 of his co-workers in the dept next to us were fired.

We have been seeing hundreds being fired and hours reduced for those remaining since 2009.

The execs held meetings with all of us telling us about the "coming challenges".

One of those fired had a obama/biden bumper sticker on his car. Talk about consequences!

Varney had a guy on his show yesterday who is in the tool business. He held up a folder of flyers for other businesses terminating their businesses and selling out. The folder was so jam packed he could hardly get his hand around it. He told the story of one tool maker who closed his business, terminated workers, sold his inventory off, and then sold all his manufacturing equipment to China. Now China will be producing those same tools. I wonder if the final product will be radioactive. I hope Barry is proud of his transformation.

The very thought of Republican politicians speaking at a Las Vegas meeting of an Adelson-backed lobbying group made Firestone want to retch: It’s hard to imagine a political spectacle more loathsome than the parade of Republican presidential candidates who spent the last few days bowing and scraping before the mighty bank account of the casino magnate Sheldon Adelson.

A RAND study pours buckets of cold water on the Obama administration’s claims that it has nearly reached 7 million sign-ups for Obamacare. The whole point of Obamacare, supposedly, was to insure the uninsured and bend the cost curve down. Those who had insurance were supposed to be able to keep it. Families were supposed to start saving about $2500 a year. If you believed the Obama administration. Reality, according to RAND‘s study, is that the Obama administration’s 7 million figure is deceptive. Supposing 7 million have actually signed up and paid their first premium — which is not a given,

Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees.

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol. They say it contains enzymes known as HMGF (hydroxy methyl glutaryl flavonones) which can attack proteins in the body known to cause heart disease.
