Following a House vote today that effectively rejected the Senates tax cut bill, President Obama reacted strongly, saying that because of House Republicans refusal to cooperate, millions of Americans could lose their tax cut in 11 days.
The president even admonished one House representative whom he said referred to the issue of the payroll tax cut extension debate as high-stakes poker.
While Obama agreed the rep was right about the stakes, he said whats happening in Congress is not a game for most

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
As the trolley to the land of make believe goes by.
OK,boys and girls we are going to learn about cooperation. Can you say cooperation?
Take Obummer off the payroll.
If George Bush had wanted to cut this 2% the democrap mdeia would have been SCREAMING about how evil Bush wanted to cut funding for social security and starve your grandmother.
This ‘2%’ cut is really almost 10% of all the funding for social security.
Instead of paying 15 percent per person the government is only getting 13 percent
And the people will not see 2% they only see 1% change in their paycheck- the ‘empoyer’ portion is where they other 1% comes from
all this fuss over 1%? this lying communist kenyan asshole needs to be removed from office as soon as possible
Obam and the Dims know a series of bandaids, vs. a long-term approach, allows them to play their little reindeer games and do the more damage.
I certainly agree with the overall message of your post. One small correction, though, the 2% reduction was entirely from the employee side (employer percentate didn't change). Another reason this entire cut was such a gimmick; employers had no incentive to expand hiring as their cost of doing business remained unchanged.
What a cry baby.
percentate = percentage
Barry just needs to sit in the back seat and suck on a Slurpee.
A two month extension is absurd.
Yeah..man...he called them Publicans out, man......gonna meet ‘em behind the WH at 3 O’Clock....gonna open up a Can ‘O Wookie Whup Ass on em......yeah!
They call this everything but what it is——theft from Social Security.
Cut Air Force Ones fuel bill by 50% see how the Bama likes that.
Yeah, especially when he went and learned how to speak Hawaiian and all.
Pass a freakin’ budget and then we’ll talk.
Indeed it is. The accounting nightmare alone in trying to file a quarterly 941 return with different FICA rates would be immense.
This economic mayhem for de-funding Social Security Trust Fund is just another phase of overloading budgets.
