    It is interesting how republicans state that Obama will not negotiate. They are the ones who signed a pact to never raise taxes! Who will not negotiate? Who has openly opposed everything the President has done since the very beginning? So while the rich accuse the poor of living off of the government, they gladly take all the money given to them in the form of tax cuts! It would be interesting to know where all these Republican representatives stand when it comes to income. Most, I bet, are facing higher taxes. Of course, they are looking out for themselves! They don't use the government do they, and by the way, what about all of the entitlements that Congress gives themselves. You don't hear them complaining! You don't hear them talk about giving up any of their precious entitlements! Hypocrites!

    ...when will this President truly reach across the aisle and compromise? This is another example of only willing to partner, as long as the other side agrees with him.

    Congress needs to continue to hold the President's feet to the fire on specific and quantifiable spending cuts before they give in on taxes, otherwise Obama will just take the extra revenue and spend that too. In just one 4 year term, this President has added more debt than all other Presidents combined in the history of the country. There appears to be no intention to change in his second term, so imagine where will we be after 8 years of Obamanomics?

    The President has to agree to substantive spending cuts at some point, because his current level of spending is not healthy or sustainable. We can't afford to give him a higher debt limit or extra tax revenue or we will only see continued wasteful spending.
