This was a central question during the election, Obama said in his first postelection comments on the economy. The majority of Americans agree with my approach.
Following up, Obamas spokesman said later that the president would veto any legislation extending tax cuts for families making $250,000 or more.
The president, speaking in the White House East Room, said he wasnt wedded to every detail of the plans he outlined during the election, adding, Im open to compromise. But he offered no indication that he was willing to back down.

Then they came for the higher income earners and small business owners, and I did not speak out because I was NOT in those income brackets.
Then they came for my Social Security benefits and I did not speak out because I hadn't reached age 62.
Then they came for my retirement accounts and savings, and there was no one left to speak out for me.
Will all the rich please leave so we can speed up the process and I can sharpen my pitchfork
He gave Warren Buffet a medal.
Warren doesn’t pay.
Not even the 15%.
He owes back taxes.
Screw that, let the tax cuts expire and everyone will be seeing who the tax cuts were really benefiting.
Barack, you’re going to eat those words some day. How dare you. Now, all the people who can start businesses and invest to make jobs are going to take their assets and hide, leave, put them away. You are deliberately trying to destroy this nation.
A majority of Americans don’t agree with Obama’s approach. He was helped back into office by dead people and fictional characters.
Zactly. Obama Clause fancies himself a chess player but is actually not educated enough for tic, tic, toe.
I always wanted to be a member of the wealthy class. I guess we all are now.
Look folks, Obama got a mandate.
I say the wealthy should turn all wealth in excess of $10 million to the federal government.
Liquidate all stocks.
Make corporations an illegal enterprise.
Close up the evil banks. Oh yes, that means all of them.
I would advocate for allowing people to own private property, but that doesn’t really reflect what people voted for. I’m probably wrong.
Let Obama have all wealth. And in the second year, there will be no wealth. There will be no production. There will be no land owners. There will be no evil banks. Wall Street will no longer exist.
In short, we will have a more perfect union. Every person will be poor.
Bliss is attained.
All praise the son of Allah, the grand imam in chief.
Pay for what?
I anyone surprised that an Obama victory wouldn’t mean higher taxes and class warfare?
Smart rich people have been preparing for this and will protect their “ass”ets as it were.
Stupid rich people, such as those in Hollywood, will be unprepared. I hope these Obama supporters in Hollywood get stripped of their wealth because, afterall, they did not really build it/earn it and they really don’t need that much money and the liberal bureaucrats know better how to spend our money anyhow. /sarc ???....not really
By encouraging the Republicans to offer proposals, he is setting them up. Anything they say that is in opposition to his plan will be savaged by his allies in the DBM.
We live in Ohio and went to NY for fertility treatment.
The nurse said it was her duty to inform us that it is illegal in NY to bring semen in from out of state. To conform with the letter of the law, I would need to wait until we crossed the state line before I “processed” my deposit.
I couldn’t help but wonder if they had “sperm police” in NY state and, if so, what their badges looked like.
I had two threads open and posted this in the wrong one...
Should be here:
They need to say they won’t propose anything.
He has to send it down to them, and he owns it, and the consequences.
“Very quickly Obama will learn he killed the goose that laid the golden egg.”
Bronco Bama will NEVER learn that lesson, it simply does not fit into the rather rigid world-view he has chosen to embrace.
In his world, wealth is criminal, except, of course, when people of his mind-set are enjoying the benefits of said wealth. The very fact the investors, after being plucked bald before they have opportunity to invest, choose not to invest in the enterprises that are designated as “worthy” in the eyes of the esteemed wise men of the Current Regime, is just further proof they are pirates who must be stripped of any means whatsoever of supporting enterprises that are NOT in the prime interest of the Current Regime. Very circular reasoning, and almost completely devoid of any logic or structure.
Cause and effect have no relationship in this approach to governance. One might as well be trying to reason with a nest of vipers.
Both sides claim they are willing to compromise. If this is a critical issue, why not split it down the middle - raise the top margin rate by half the increase O wants. Both sides get some of what they wanted, but not all, and neither side gets a disaster.
Let’s do it Barack’s way, and make America pay. Give him what he wants.
