Obama: Iíll work with Republicans if they agree to raise taxes
yahoo ^ | 9/9/12 | Oliver Knox

Posted on 09/09/2012 8:45:13 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

President Barack Obama said in an interview partly broadcast Sunday that he would be "more than happy to work with the Republicans" to trim the swelling national debt — as long as they drop their opposition to raising taxes on the wealthiest Americans.

"You can't reduce the deficit unless you take a balanced approach that says, 'We've got to make government leaner and more efficient,'" the president told CBS's Scott Pelley. "But we've also got to ask people --like me or Gov. Romney, who have done better than anybody else over the course of the last decade, and whose taxes are just about lower than they've been in the last 50 years - to do a little bit more."

Republicans: We’ll work with Obama if he will cut spending.

So that’s a non starter. Next.

Its hard to work with an administration when we’ve been relgated to the backseat of the car ( Obama’s analogy).

How long can Obama not accept responsibility ,.. and continue to “Blame Bush “ for four years of indolent , non-leadership ?”

OK - go ahead and raise taxes on the wealthy. See how far that gets you! Maybe a week or two of spending? Just make sure you don’t move the goal posts!

Incredible that he touts he will lower the national debt by $4,000,000,000,000 in 10 years. What on earth good will that do when he adds that much in 3 1/2 years?

Is everyone in that administration and party criminally stupid?

"Work with me" translated from the Oblamoblather means "I'm the President, so do it my way." It's also dog whistle rhetoric for his true believer followers -- "hate the rich."

Fifth graders can do the arithmetic to show there is no way to close the gap with higher taxes. You can confiscate all the accumulated WEALTH (not income) of those making over $1M per year and not come close to paying down the debt politicians have amassed. Trillion dollar per year deficits from here to Kingdom Come are not a responsible way to run a country. Fours years without producing a budget is not responsible governance.

FU Obastard. Your time is [hopefully] up.

0bama will gladly take that deal. The defense department is spending about $700 billion too much right now.

So, why not offer a bill that simultaneously increases that tax while at the same time reducing the size of government? And, by reducing government I mean firing bureaucrats, eliminating entire departments such as the Department of Education and greatly reducing entitlement payments.

Somehow I imagine Obama would just find another reason to not sign it.

“Fool me twice...”

According to the recently published account of the debt ceiling negotiations, Boehner gave him a lot, but at the last moment, like the community organizer he is, Obama grabbed for more, breaking his previous word. Who can work with a sneaky liar like that?

The Democrats lied to Reagan about cutting spending if he raised taxes. They lied to Bush 21 about cutting spending if he raised taxes. Why in the world would the GOP fall for this discredited gambit proposed by the biggest lying Democrat of them all?

“They lied to Bush 21 about cutting spending if he raised taxes. “

IIRC, the dems promised that every new dollar in taxes would be used to cut the deficit. Instead, they spent $1.84 for every new dollar raised by the tax increase.

Obama couldn’t even manage the details of cutting the expenses he promised when he said he would cut the deficit in half, yet thinks he can and has managed the economy for the better...

You know Obama probably actually believes the pablum that falls out of mouth...

Our debt problem has very little to do with not taxing the wealthy enough... It has mostly to do with GDP growth....and only 50 % of the population not paying federal taxes but instead getting tax credits...

Obama can not understand that because he only understand government and cyronism....

The infamous January 2013 “tax bomb”. Ingredients: Cancel Bush Tax Cuts, cancel payroll Holiday taxes, add ObamaCare Tax, add Obama-Generational-Wealth-Theft Tax, add the Redistribution-of-Wealth Tax.....a BOOM that is truly a BUST!

Obama can tax the “rich” until the cows come home; and even then it’ll be a drop in the bucket to his voracious appetite for TAX dollars to buy votes.

How about we cut spending first-—starting with the 45 CZARS, who are not vetted nor confirmed by Congress.

They have staffs—they have rent—they have other overhead—but we don’t have a clue where the money is coming from to pay for their adventures.

We don’t know what they are supposed to be doing, nor IF they are doing such.

They are ONLY responsible to Obama-—ONLY!!!

How come no one is asking about all this expenditure for what I consider a ‘Shadow Government”?????

I think the whole thing is downright sinister.

I want answers. I want it dismantled.

When will the press follow up with, "IF THIS IS SO CRITICAL TO RECOVERY WHY DIDN'T YOU DO IT IN 2009 OR 2010?"

When!?
