Former President Bill Clinton says broad tax cuts that expire in January should be temporarily extended, including for the wealthiest Americans, to give lawmakers time to reach a deal on long-term tax reductions that he says should exclude the rich.
Clintons comments Tuesday were in contrast to President Barack Obama, whose re-election he Clinton is supporting. Obama has opposed renewing the tax cuts for people earning more than $250,000 a year.

It seems “Big Dog” may be carrying a grudge. He really is pulling the rug out from under the Bush Blamer.

Apparently, Bill certainly knows how to get out in front of the crowd. Which is more than one can say about Obama.
... to give lawmakers time to reach a deal on long-term tax reductions that he says should exclude the rich.
Of course, Bill already has someone on his staff to figure out a way to minimize his future taxes.
I know, one should not mention "Bill Clinton" and "staff" in the same sentence. /smile

Who is this Bill Clinton that keeps popping up all over the news? Did he used to be the ruler of the world or something? Can’t they give him some Testosterone so that he can get back to doing what he does best? I’m sick of seeing anything about him. I’ll bet Obama is too. (Ha ha ha)

Balderdash, the meme is that the tax cuts were ONLY for the rich. They were. Rich means you make enough to OWE taxes in AmeriKKKa, lowly serf.
