Video: McConnell: Willing to deal but "I need a dance partner"

Dec 30, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: CBS News

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said today that his office submitted their last "fiscal cliff" offer to Democrats yesterday at 7:10 p.m., but "we've yet to receive a response to our good-faith offer."

Looks like Biden and McConnell came through. No thanks to Reid or Obama.

If he makes over $450k then he'll be taxed at 39% just like everyone else who makes that much.

Well, he did say people like himself should pay a little more.

Yep and the millionaire / billionaire, Obama, will have to pay more, right?

"Obama tax return shows 2011 earnings of $789,674

The White House says President Barack Obama and his family paid more than $160,000 in federal taxes last year.
The president's 2011 federal income tax return shows reported adjusted gross income of about $790,000 last year. About half of the first family's income is the president's salary. The White House says the rest comes from sales of Obama's books.
Obama's effective tax rate is just above 20 percent -- lower than many Americans who earn less. He has made tax-rate fairness a campaign issue."

HEY OBAMA, BE A TRUE LEADER AND PAY YOUR FULL 39% TAX RATE INSTEAD OF PAYING LESS THAN MANY AMERICANS WHO PAY LESS. AS A SUPPOSED LEADER WHEN ARE WE GOING TO SEE THAT HAPPEN?

Wrong Sweetie Pie, it was the Democrats that slipped most of the rich tax credits for the rich corporations.

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142412788...

"The great joke here is that Washington pretends to want to pass "comprehensive tax reform," even as each year it adds more tax giveaways that distort the tax code and keep tax rates higher than they have to be. Even as he praised the bill full of this stuff, Mr. Obama called Tuesday night for "further reforms to our tax code so that the wealthiest corporations and individuals can't take advantage of loopholes and deductions that aren't available to most Americans."

One of Mr. Obama's political gifts is that he can sound so plausible describing the opposite of his real intentions.

The costs of all this are far greater than the estimates conjured by the Joint Tax Committee. They include slower economic growth from misallocated capital, lower revenues for the Treasury and thus more pressure to raise rates on everyone, and greater public cynicism that government mainly serves the powerful.

Republicans who are looking for a new populist message have one waiting here, and they could start by repudiating the corporate welfare in this New Year disgrace."

I agree with that Opinion piece that the "Republicans who are looking for a new populist message have one waiting here, and they could start by repudiating the corporate welfare in this New Year disgrace." As it was mainly the Democrats that supported Corporate welfare and tax breaks for the rich.

DON'T YOU LIBERALS HATE IT WHEN YOUR LIES ARE PROVEN WRONG AGAIN?

YEAH, MUST OF MISSED THAT SPEECH IF IT WAS EVER MADE. HOWEVER RIGHT NOW HE PAYS LESS TAXES THAN MANY AMERICANS WHO EARN LESS THAN HIM. "Obama's effective tax rate is just above 20 percent" WHICH IS HALF OF THE 39% HE IS DEMANDING FROM THE OTHER RICH PEOPLE. I DOUBT HE WILL EVER PAY DOUBLE HIS TAXES TO THE GOVERNMENT AS HE IS SO USED TO USING SUCH TAX LOOPHOLES ALL THE TIME.

Well you miss a lot of actual news when you only watch Fox News.

Obama will pay whatever the current taxrate is, just like everyone else in America.

SO, Obama's income is going to be worse. I guess that could be true as more and more people realize he is lying to them and don't buy his books or ask Michelle for one of her famous speeches. So, Obama makes much less and then he wants us to believe he is good with America's money? If that is true, then Obama is horrible with money and we should never believe he would be good with our taxpayer money.

Then you know that you are arguing a non-actual point in reality because like I said I did not see it.
