Easy, having been in control, and having changed the laws so the rich get everything, they simply don't want anything to change. The laws let the rich plunder the nation and they don't want anything to change that. So all they have to do is filibuster every bill. They have been doing that successfully for years. The only way to fix the economy is to have Reid eliminate the filibuster. Giving the GOP the right to continue destroying out nation might be what Harry does, cause he is a republican at heart.
Why did the liberals not do anything the six years they have been in control........just another example of Obama not leading.

it's not treasonous in any way shape or form. Since obammy had complete control of the gov for two years why didn't he change the rates then? Nothing could have stopped him. Nothing. And what will liberals do with the increased tax revenue? You understand that obamy proposes spending increases that are far greater than any tax increase?
