A win-win situation for President Obama who has brilliantly maneuvered the GOP into a no-win situation. Obama’s chess board is now officially a deadly weapon, LOL…

Tax over 450,000 instead of 25,000 like obummer wanted? Biden running to the senate democrats......"please, please, please!"

House conservatives could take issue with the way the spending cuts were overhauled – particularly the inclusion of additional tax increases.

On the other side, Democrats were crying foul all afternoon over the move to raise taxes only on those making over $450,000.

"Looks like a very bad deal the way this is shaping up," Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, said.

Oblummer is going to cry new years eve!! Check mate for the House elected by the people of America to stop the fkn spending!

Still unresolved is how to avert across-the-board spending cuts set to begin slashing the budgets of the Pentagon and numerous domestic agencies. The dems have lied about spending cuts before with Reagan and Bush I. Clinton was dragged kicking and screaming and force to make cuts in 94 with the republican led congress.

Will nobama and the dems lie again?? Probably!

Get your lips off of your obama fathead for awhile, clown.

The agreement also does not address any increase in the nation's debt ceiling, which -- combined with the delay of automatic spending cuts -- sets up the distinct possibility of another cliff-like budget battle in February.

The omission of the debt ceiling dismayed some liberal Democrats, including Sens. Tom Harkin of Iowa and Sherrod Brown of Ohio. Their criticism prompted Biden's visit to Capitol Hill late Monday.

"He's here to hear members' concerns and respond to them," said Reid spokesman Adam Jentleson.

There was an air of resignation among Democrats to the deal, however. "It's what we could get," said Jentleson.

The dems are getting whipped, including your messiah. This is fun.

You don't recognize an obama put down when you see one, do you? You so funny!

Nobama actually believes that...raising taxes by 4.5% for those making over 450,000 a year is going to help the deficit. You both must've went to the same economics class.........on the short bus.

All is well; Obama is losing, even though he won the election, LOL! The more you post the more your desperation is showing… 4 more years of pure bliss for those of us who are truly enjoying the suffering of idiot right-wingers like you.

Lesson # 1:(The Barrack Hussein Obama way)

* U.S. Tax revenue:$ 2,170,000,000,000
* Fed budget:$ 3,820,000,000,000
* New debt:$ 1,650,000,000,000
* National debt:$14,271,000,000,000
* Recent budget cuts:$ 38,500,000,000

Now remove 8 zeros and pretend it's a household budget:
* Annual family income:$ 21,700
* Money the family spent:$ 38,200
* New debt on the credit card:$ 16,500
* Outstanding balance on the credit card:$142,710
* Total budget cuts so far:$ 38.50

Got It ?????
OK now,

Lesson # 2:
Here's another way to look at the Debt Ceiling:
Let's say, You come home from work and find
there has been a sewer backup in your neighborhood....
and your home has sewage all the way up to your ceilings.
What do you think you should do ......
Raise the ceilings, or remove the crap?
.

HAPPY NEW YEAR

How did the focus shift from individual income taxes when it should be on corporate income taxes. You have companies like GE paying no tax or Goldman Sachs paying 1%.

http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news...

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-11-03/thir...

When ever a domestic US corporate facility is on the verge of closing they go to the local and federal governments for a tax break to keep that facility open. Not only is this blackmail it shifts the tax burden again to individuals and the local businesses to pay the taxes a corporation should be paying.

http://articles.latimes.com/2010/oct/06/busin...

What does corporate America have left to hold over our heads? They've already outsourced to the point they have fewer bargaining chips.

But this is why the corporate loop holes have to be plugged in the 15,000 page code. What's the average individual tax return booklet, maybe 100 pages?

If nothing else the focus of the fiscal cliff needs to shift from individual to corporat income taxes for additional revenues.

Corporations do not pay taxes! The focus needs to shift to the tax code, as in get rid of it.

Cut the spending, use the savings to pay off the principle and interest on Treasury Bonds. The countries, organizations and people who bought them need the money.

From Obama on down, on both sides of the isle, what we have here is a bunch of junior high football players trying to win the super bowl. We need to start over and elect some politicians that have brains and at least some balls. This game of 'it's your fault - no it's yours' is getting old and really expensive. If these people worked for a living, in the real world, they'd all be immediately fired.
