The White House is sticking by its opposition to an extension of the Bush tax cuts for wealthy Americans despite the increasing number of Democrats voicing support for it, including former President Bill Clinton.

Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters aboard Air Force One on Wednesday that President Obama will not sign an extension.

"He will not. Could I be more clear?" Carney said, according to the Associated Press.

Bush tax cuts for wealthy Americans

Can the working class wage earner not understand that when AP says 'wealthy Americans' they are talking about him?

Okay, Mr. Boehner, here’s your opening.

Pass another extension and dare Obama to veto it (and/or the Senate Dems to kill or bury it).

SCORCHED EARTH. What a spoiled child. He’s taking his marbles and going home in November..and he knows it..and eff everybody else.

Just wait until his real parting shots in December and January...the prison doors will be wide open..

Wait until it comes time..these taxes can be repealed, tax cut extensions granted..etc. after 1/20/2013

Not a problem. Just take the Senate and White House, then announce that it will be reinstated in January first thing, so that people don’t freak out in December when it expires. Then use it as part of the budget so it is not susceptible to a filibuster (or dump the filibuster in Senate rules altogether, but that is another issue). Done.

Not unless someone tells them the truth, which the news media will never do.

It's going to be up to the GOP to let people know that if they are currently in the bottom 10% tax bracket, as of January 1, 2013, their income taxes are going to increase by at least 50%, and by more than that if they are married and have children living in the household.

And also - several million people who are currently not paying any income tax are going to be added back onto the tax rolls.

The echoing chant of: “FOUR MORE MONTHS” is ringing in my head. He will do nothing to assist our economy or the working class...NOTHING. And likewise, they should oblige him on his re-election effort.
The Kenyan needs to start packing his bags. He’ll be moving soon.

Feeling depressed, betrayed and anxious about the future of America?

227 Days, 23 Hours, 28 Minutes, 33 Seconds..... until Inauguration Day 2013 and the end of our long national nightmare.

Gee, another great idea from the “Lost In Space” White House.

I swear, these people couldn’t find their butts with both hands.
