You are wrong. The American People blame the GOP. They voted for Obama and his agenda and they are saying through polling that they blame the GOP for this stalemate.<quoted text>
The only tax rates that aided in the financial success of this country during Clinton's time was the lowering of capital gains. DumBama wants to increase that along with other taxes.
My point is this: if we fall over the fiscal cliff, it would not be the Republicans doing alone. If DumBama was so concerned about the 98% of us, he would just give in to keeping the tax rates for all. But that's not his agenda. His agenda is to allow the fiscal collapse to happen and then (with the help of the media) blame it all on Republicans. The media is reporting that this all lies at the feet of the Republicans--not DumBama. This is why I say you have to listen to Fox or Limbaugh to get the other side of the story.
Republicans are doing all they can to keep the poor economy going or trying to make improvements. DumBama is once again thinking party first--country second. Increase taxes on our enemies--the wealthy people. Many of them don't vote for us.
President Obama has not tied the extension of the Bush tax cuts to the 98% on anything. No conditions. Pass it and he'll sign it. It's your beloved GOP that is trying to leverage that.
What happens if this stalemate goes on? Everyone's tax rate goes up. Is that what the GOP wants? As the election showed, the GOP isn't real smart at looking at the end game.
