This is the last thing I saw Obama doing. Just a less than a month ago he said he wasn't willing to compromise on this issue and forfeit 700 billion dollar in taxes and now he is? As one of the previous commenters mentioned, how's 30 billion in unemployment equal to 700 billion in tax cuts?! I couldn't agree more.
And what is all this BS about cutting taxes leading to more jobs? Republicans throw that statement around as if it is self-explanatory. Well it is not. As a matter of fact, it is absolutely outright bogus and deserves no compromising with. I absolutely do not believe a word of it. Here's some info to question those claims:
What also really bothers me is how neither party, especially Obama since he has the power, has clearly laid out on paper the implications for the rest of us if these tax cuts were to expire. There are schools that say taxes will go up for everyone and other's that say they won't.
Now which is it dear Obama, Congress and every cheating and power hungry politician out there that we need scores of lawyers we can't afford to keep track of where your filthy financing money is coming from? Why is there such lack of transparency in these measures before they are implemented? It's the lack of finer details that leaves people confused and makes their political mood swing like a pendulum.
American politics has become a room full of smoke and mirrors with complete and utter disregard for the will of the majority of the population.
