Ok, first start by ending your class warfare PR stunt and then show us your plan to reduce the deficit in half as you promised. Don’t see that happening anytime soon.
From The Hill:
President Obama on Wednesday ramped up his sales pitch for Congress to accept a budget deal that includes tax increases on the wealthiest Americans, offering a stark warning to lawmakers that it’s “too important to screw this up.”
Wouldn’t be in this position if Obama had kept your promise to cut the deficit in half and didn’t produce $1 trillion dollar deficits each year of his presidency.
During brief remarks at the White House to a group of middle-class voters, Obama sought to push his proposal to extend tax rates only on households with annual income of $250,000 or less before those rates expire at the end of the year.
What has Obama done to work out a compromise? Nothing but PR stunts and photo-ops…
Obama, who will travel to Pennsylvania on Friday to tout his proposal, also urged Americans to take to Twitter and email to urge their lawmakers to prevent a tax hike on the middle class.
“I’ll go anywhere and I’ll do whatever it takes to get this done,” Obama said in his remarks. “It’s too important for Washington to screw this up. Now’s the time for us to work on what we all agree to, which is let’s keep middle-class taxes low. That’s what our economy needs. That’s what the American people deserve.”
Show us your plans to reduce your deficit then apologize for lying about the Bush tax rates you lefties claim were only benefited the rich.
Obama, who campaigned on raising taxes on the wealthiest Americans, said the “fiscal-cliff” debate is not just about numbers. It’s a set of major decisions, he said, “that are gonna affect millions of families all across this country.”
This same bullshit he campaigned on in 2008 and did nothing. The deficits were bad and Obama made them worse. Obama promised to end the Bush tax cuts and turned around to extended them in 2010. The only promise Obama kept was the fundamental transformation from a productive society to a parasitic society demanding others (the rich) to pay for their wants.
