GOP will cave on something that could not pass..what fools...
The Dems are not going to let the workers have jobs building that pipeline so there's no income for them.
This tax cut has a strong and unfair bias against people who are in retirement, or who are obliged for one reason or another to live on their investments.
I’d be willing to put up with it as the price for forcing the Keystone Pipeline down Obama’s throat, but I don’t like it. Just another typical Obama ploy.
What's ALLAHPUNDIT smoking???? Seriously. No significant reductions in government spending, cuts to programs, or changes in this ever-growing regulatory nightmare, but ALLAHPUNDIT considers this a big loss for Democrats?!?!
Folks, government is totally out of control and growing like a cancer. The patient needs major chemo therapy, but our Republican oncologists seem to think a little bed rest is all that's needed. This deal wasn't a major loss for Democrats. It was a major loss for America!
This seems to happen every time our side compromises. Our side should be demanding trillions in cuts and settling for slightly less. If that means we have to give the Democrats a few revenue increases for trillions in cuts elsewhere, what's the big deal? No. We'd rather settle for the status quo where the Democrats are already getting nearly everything they really, truly want. That's big government, also known as the status quo.
Does anyone seriously think Democrats consider tax increases on millionaires a loss? That's a simple bargaining position, so they can whine about how much they didn't get out of this deal. They already spend pretty much whatever they want and completely control the nation's regulatory reigns.
