He'd just propose even higher taxes and continue with the same tax the rich, class warfare campaign. Should we then pass his next set of loony ideas to?
Hussein is not putting forth real plans. He knows they will not pass. He now recognizes the economy is going to be terrible right up till election day 2012 and has decided to effectively act as if none of his agenda to create jobs has ever passed. He's pivoted from "things are getting better" to "things can only get better if you pass my tax hikes and stimulus plans" We are back to early 2009 when he proposed Porkulus in the first place.
I'd say the Republicans in the House should give him the payroll tax cuts and a few of the small business tax breaks. None will help the economy much, but at least it helps starve the beast and gives the appearance that the GOP is reasonable and wants to "work with the President".
You've nailed it EXACTLY.
Obama is doubling down on his failed policies, catering to his base by demanding policies even a Democrat Congress wouldnt pass, and proposing bills he know wont pass.
This is all campaign election gimmicks nothing more. Not a solution not even an attempt to reach common ground.His proposals would be deadly to the economy and move us further in the socialistic direction. But since they wont pass, what Obama will campaign on is "those mean Republicans didnt let me save the economy by taxing the rich" his base will eat it up.
But I think everyone else will see through the chicanery.
