You have to pay your bills, it may be painful but you have to pay them. Its time to pay for two wars and their damaged survivors, expanded medicare and education, and the free ride you've taken on your tax bill for the last decade.Obama:....we’re now at the point where, in just a couple days, the law says that every American’s tax rates are going up. Every American’s paycheck will get a lot smaller. And that would be the wrong thing to do for our economy. It would hurt middle-class families, and it would hurt the businesses that depend on your spending.
And Congress can prevent it from happening, if they act now.
But if an agreement isn’t reached in time, then I’ll urge the Senate to hold an up-or-down vote on a basic package that protects the middle class from an income tax hike, extends vital unemployment insurance for Americans looking for a job, and lays the groundwork for future progress on more economic growth and deficit reduction.
I believe such a proposal could pass both houses with bipartisan majorities – as long as these leaders allow it to come to a vote. If they still want to vote no, and let this tax hike hit the middle class, that’s their prerogative – but they should let everyone vote. That’s the way this is supposed to work.

he's playing the GOP.
it's a wonderful thing to behold. and OMG the FOXbots are so pissed that the POTUS is finally acting like a liberal!
deal with it. might as well. he's not running for President again. this is what you get for the next 4 years, and i would say the more you whine the more you'll have to whine about.
How can you expect people to get behind the difficult decisions if cost of those decisions are deferred to future generations?
