    ...House Speaker John Boehner said in a statement Tuesday following Obama's remarks. .....Well, not to contradict you, Mr. Speaker, but your Congressional Budget Office (CBO) scored the fiscal cliff agreement as a tax CUT, and a BIG one, at that. ..... "Our cost estimate showed that legislation [the cliff agreement] as a very large tax cut, not the tax increase that you have just described,” Congressional Budget Office Director Douglas W. Elmendorf told Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.) at last Wednesday’s House Budget Committee hearing. Price was trying to make the GOP point that the cliff agreement only involved revenue-raising while Elmendorf pointed out the regularly overlooked fact that the measure overwhelmingly was a tax cut and revenue loser." http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/2013/02/18/967a0608-785c-11e2-aa12-e6cf1d31106b_story_1.html

    The fiscal cliff deal, according to the CBO, resulted in a 41:1 ratio. That is, $41 in tax increases per $1 in spending cuts. Obama wanted a balanced approach. That's hardly balanced in my book. No more revenue increases until this campaigner in chief is ready to reform entitlements. Listening to this liar talk about how the middle class is going to get hurt if sequestration happens is a joke. This liar raised taxes on the middle class Jan 1 and it didn't bother him a bit. Save the "we gotta help the middle class" nonsense. If you wanted to help the middle class then you shouldn't have raised their taxes POTUS. Remember what you said during the 2008 campaign? "I won't raise taxes on the middle class 1 dime." You can't reduce the payroll tax by 2%, call it a tax cut for the middle class, and then let it expire and not call it a tax increase. Do you really think people are that stupid?

  • Make Cuts Across The Board!
    General Insight
    Cuts across the board are EXACTLY what is needed and in true form of our great nation built by ancestors of fairness and feasibility. National leaders: Do not be afraid of doing the right thing - make those cuts across the board!

    For 98% of Americans the fiscal cliff deal made PERMANENT the Bush tax cuts. It extended the child care tax credit & EITC. It also implemented a permanent fix to prevent the Alternative Minimum Tax from hitting more of the middle class. ..... So where exactly are your middle class tax increases Rob?
