The Seven Things You Need to Know About the Tax Deal
President Obama will sign the legislation soon. Last night, he described the agreement as, "one step in the broader effort to strengthen our economy and broaden opportunity for everybody."

"Under this law, more than 98 percent of Americans and 97 percent of small businesses will not see their income taxes go up," he said. "Millions of families will continue to receive tax credits to help raise their kids and send them to college. Companies will continue to receive tax credits for the research that they do, the investments they make, and the clean energy jobs that they create. And 2 million Americans who are out of work but out there looking, pounding the pavement every day, are going to continue to receive unemployment benefits as long as they’re actively looking for a job."

We know that that a lot of people have questions about the deal, so we've pulled together some of the most important facts. Here are the seven things you need to know

Jackpot!

Congress saved Asparagus farmers!

"Asparagus growers: The measure includes a provision that extends "market loss assistance" for asparagus producers who are being hurt by low-cost asparagus coming in from South America. The subsidy amounts to $15 million a year — half going to fresh-market asparagus production and the other half to processed or frozen production."

You said you support a gun ban. In fact you may have said all guns. But you still have yours. That's called being a hypocrite.
Meat doesn't necessarily come from hunting. In fact very little meat consumed in America comes from hunting.
Being a hypocrite is asking someone to do something you are not WILLING to do yourself. I have never endorsed a complete gun ban but would be WILLING to accept one if such a law was passed.
Regarding hunting, meat doesn't grow on trees. It comes from killing animals. It is hypocritical to criticize others for killing the animal they eat while you eat meat that you paid someone else to kill for you.

Maybe it's not as bad as we think, given that Obama caved in on extending the Bush tax cuts for all but a few people.
Hopefully, it will make it a lot easier in 2014 and 2016 to bring back some sanity.

But it could have been worse, granted.

However, the worst is yet to come over the next 60 days. Obama has to deliver on his "balanced approach" and either put up or shut up and spending cuts.

Problem is, he doesn't care about the deficit. He only cares about extracting revenge against the wealthy.

Not really an all-electric car, pal, and hardly any sales in the US.
Range of 21 miles as all-electric vehicle.
Plus,$37K for a kiddie car.
But if that piece of crap floats your boat, have fun.
Some day in the future, electric vehicles may be practical, but not yet.
Some of these Marxist Obama lovers forget that we use oil for many other things!Electric cars need oil too.

Obama would need help plugging in his new plastic electric car!

Who can blame them?

We're facing a bleaker future than any of us can imagine.

We have a president who wants to add trillions to the deficit at the same time all Americans have smaller paychecks.

The you-know-what is about to hit the fan.

If I had that kind of money, I'd be getting out while there was still time too.

Reminds me of going over Obamacare "line by line" on CNN before passing it.

I don't trust anything this White House says. Not one single word.
