President decries 'hostage' tactic; Utah senator lambasts him
There was never any trading of barbs. These were prerecorded messages.
Don't overstate the significance of these messages which are delivered
Saturday morning and watched by a grand total of about eight people.
The rich are the backbone of our economy.Middle class won't
have to worry about tax cuts when they're laid off, and the rich will pay
even more to cover the loss revenue. Smart thinking Barry. This may cure
It's BO who is holding middle class tax cuts hostage. Repubs have
indicated a willingness to put revenue increases ont he table; they have shown a
willingness to compromise. But BO is still in campaign mode, never changed
since 2007, and still does not know how to lead.
BO is still out on the campaign trail. His going to Philadelphia to "talk
to the people" is ample proof. He should get on prime time TV and attempt
to explain why he can't get an agreement and why he won't budge.Middle class tax cuts are a myth. I for one would like to see the 47%,
of which I am one, pay their "fair share of taxes". I haven't paid
any for years and due to my deductions, of which I take ample advantage, I
won't pay any this year. In fact, I'll get way more back than was
taken out of my paycheck during the year. It's awesome, and it happenes
every year. And I take advantage of every legal deduction to fund my
largess.Until the President and Congress move to change the tax code
so I actually pay, or at least don't get a refund, I'll keep doing
legally what I can. I'd be happy to pay taxes but sorry, I won't
until the system is fixed.
