Despite the threats, the dire warnings, and even the over-heated rhetoric, the House of Representatives, and the White House are locked in a fierce battle to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff dictated by the failure of the unfortunately named super committee - a bipartisan group of legislators - which previously failed to agree to necessary tax ...

I don't believe there is a struggle going on here. I think it is a gathering of clowns trying to cover their A$$es and stick it to all the dumb Americans....why do we continue to tolerate these people? Is there any way to form an alliance against them? I know we have them out numbered.

I was P Offed when I heard that the Republicans weren't cooperating with the president on this issue. It's the middle class who once again are going to be screwed as usual. But you could be right. Maybe this is the NWO or change we've all been hearing about - the rich class and the poor class - no middle any more. I heard someone from congress the other day saying that we're all going to have to sacrifice. Of course that excludes any of the wealthiest of our society and congress of course. As if people aren't sacrificing already but apparently congress doesn't give a damn.

There are by some estimates, 45 to 47 percent in this country that pay no income tax what-so-ever so that leaves the middle class and rich to pay a majority of taxes. Those at the high end are paying 35 to 40 percent of their income to taxes. Large and small businesses are the job creators in this country and supply most of the jobs in the private sector. So whatís Obama's solution? Letís tax them some more until it reaches a point where they cannot operate, cannot invest in new equipment or new technology, cannot hire new employees and all at the same time trying to meet Union Demands and NOW OBAMACARE! They will eventually take their business elsewhere or simply close their doors and there is nothing you can do about it. Then what do we have? A government that has nothing coming in by way of taxes except from the middle class. Washington would have to close its doors as well which might just be a good thing!!

"Once again President Obama is lying to us. The federal government wastes billions of dollars every year, and yet now they want to cut crucial things like our national defense. Obama doesn't want to cut spending---he is purposely trying to create a mindset where you can't live without the federal government taking care of you. What about the fraud and waste and corruption that goes on in many programs like the food stamp one? Why aren't these being addressed and looked at? This isn't just about the rich getting taxed; we are all being taxed as Obama continues to lie about the goodness of his programs. Obama needs 'fiscal rehab'---he doesn't want to change his ways but needs to." ---Mark Levin, 19 February 2013
