Tax Cut EXTENSION goes to Obama…

Now that the House caved to the will of the senate and Obama how will this be framed for discussion in the next election?

As Tax Cut Bill Heads to Obama’s Desk, Partisan Debate Rages On

WASHINGTON — As President Obama prepares to sign into law Friday the massive bipartisan tax package that delighted most Republicans but divided his own party, the debate over its implications rages on.

Obama, who gets to play Santa Claus at the White House signing at 3:50 p.m, will find himself surrounded by Democrats and Republicans eager to take advantage of a photo opportunity that illustrates their effort to prevent a big New Year’s Day tax hike for millions of Americans.

But others continue to criticize the deal.

Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., said Obama and lawmakers will face enormous election-year pressure in 2012 to extend the cuts again or make them permanent. Weiner said the Republicans turned out to be “better poker players” than Obama.

As we were told in 08 during the elections by the liberal progressives from both the Hillary and Obama camps: “The Bush tax cuts killed the economy” and “The economy is dead because of Bush’s policies regarding these tax cuts for the rich” So now that they have signed yet another Bush policy that “Destroyed” the nation how do the liberal progressive take this? Well of course they are going to claim victory because they got unemployment extensions, and more dollars for a few pet entitlement programs…  🙄

Gitmo still open, Patriot act resigned, Bush tax cuts extended, Afghanistan still in chaos, Iraq still has American troops on the ground… Um Did Bush ever leave office?

The current Congress is the worst congress in history, also chaired by the worst speaker of the house and the worst senate majority leader EVER. You can tell exactly what kind of people they were by the way they passed bills. Health care in particular but there were several underhanded attempts by the democrats to get their agenda passed and they are not done yet.

This lame duck congress is about to give America the giant one finger salute, Are you ready? Dream act, START, DADT, and probably a few more things that we won’t hear about until after the new congress starts.

BOHICA yall…

Obama Caves on Taxes?

Obama Caves on Taxes?

 This will be a very quick post.

I honestly believe there is some strategy playing out and if the GOP plays it right they can bury the progressive democrats for many years to come. But never fear, the GOP has been known to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in the past.

The Republicans held firm on the “Don’t tax ANYONE” line. GOOD. They were unified and they presented Obama with a real problem. His class warfare strategy got called. Now I don’t like that the Republicans gave up so much, and I really hate that they allowed “Duh Won” to claim he is “Compromising” but listen for a second.

The democrats hate this, not the moderates but the far left progressives. The Nancy Pelosi’s the Waters and the Rangle’s… This may die in the house and senate. IF it does, then our taxes go up everyones taxes go up and as long as the REPUBLICANS STAY UNIFIED, the Democrats come out looking like the culprit. IF that happens, Obama will be forced to deal with a majority Republican house and a senate that’s split. The “Hostage takers” language is falling on deaf ears because everyone knows the republicans are NOT trying to tax the middle and lower classes, they want EVERYONE to be equal, isn’t that the utopia of the uber left?

Anyway, the only way this strategy fails is if:

1: The Democrats get on board with the new plan.

2. Too many R’s vote against it. Already a couple of them are saying NO. Which is bad.

IF this tax bill passes the way it is, and the jobs start coming back. The R’s stand to gain as much as Obama. IF the bill fails, and the R’s were unified in it’s defeat and the jobs stay stagnant Obama and the D’s take a bath in 2012.

Although this is just an opinion and I could be wrong. I think the gamesmanship is evident.
