President Obama is urging Congress to extend tax breaks for the middle class, saying it’s “unacceptable for some Republicans in Congress to hold middle class tax cuts hostage simply because they refuse to let tax rates go up on the wealthiest Americans.”

With the clock ticking toward the so-called “fiscal cliff,” Obama asked lawmakers in his weekly address to “begin by doing what we all agree on” and extend the middle class tax cuts set to expire at the end of the year.

The lying sob is the one holding up the tax vote. taxing the rich will bring in a small amount of money. the commie is trying to bring down the poor people so he can dicate to them while on welfare. He has enough goofy , dumb people to vote form him and now he is trying to take them down too.

Warren Buffet, Bill Gates' father, Sen. Ted Kennedy, and George Soros have all requested that we keep the estate tax. If you look at their publicized financial records you will find that their money is protected from the IRS through trusts or foundations. For example Sen. Kennedy has $500 million in trusts based in Jamaica, Cayman Islands, and the bulk of it in Fiji. The Kennedy oil company operating in five states, once called Kenn Oil, is now named The Arctic Oil Royalty Trust. George Soros "holds the bulk of his billions in tax-free overseas accounts."

The left is guising to tax the rich..........but only the republican rich. Hypocrites, LMAO

Susan Rice and hubby are heavily invested in the Keystone pipeline....does everyone remember that? The left campaigned hard against it,,, especially nobummer.

Hilarious.

Obama lies through his teeth when he mention 'Middle Class' which is his liberal base of Union parasites that enjoy Obama’s free pension and healthcare, food stamp ‘class’ of Blacks, Hispanics , Mozlems, free loan students and Amnesty illegals that depend on his free checks to live without working. Mitt Romney and GOP did not know or ever could believe that Obama is working behind our backs as community organizer during his four years in the White House using 16 million free Obama phones to pay every single Black, Hispanic, illegal, student or Mozlem Brother to become part of the liberal voting base while promising no need to find any job or work for lifetime. Mitt Romney's math was wrong. Mitt Romney did not know that Obama used the "stimulation 859 billion dollars that US Congress award him blindly with no checking will go to buy votes of his unions, Blacks, Hispanics, free student loans and free mortgages for Blacks, Hispanic and Asians, Amnesty free checks to the young illegals and financing Mozlem Brother revolutions in the Middle East to push Shariya laws in Northern Africa. Obama needed hundreds of billions for covering the free pension and free healthcare to the Obama's Union base including UAW and for the food stamps for Blacks and Hispanics, Illegals and students. Mitt Romney was naive to believe that Obama will not use hundreds of billions of our tax money plus tens of billions of borrowed money and printed money to make 52% of the American voters’ dependent in one way or another on Obama free checks and warning his base that the checks will go away if Obama is not re-elected. GOP Boehner and Congressmen continue to go blind after the lies of Obama who now demand control on his own unlimited spending for his food stamp class that he fraudulently calls Middle Class.

Don't you realize that due to your ponderous wordiness, and also due to the maniacal content of those words, virtually no one reads your repetitive drivel?
