Washington (CNN) - The Obama administration and congressional leaders have begun talks toward reaching a deal on extending the Bush-era tax cuts, President Barack Obama said after a meeting with representatives of both parties on Tuesday.
Republican leaders confirmed Tuesday that they discussed a compromise with Obama during their nearly two-hour meeting.
No compromises Mr. President!!! If they want to trade their tax cuts for the wealthy for our extension of unemployment benefits, no deal. If those Fascists are serious about fiscal responsibility, they will be screaming let them expire for everyone. But they're not!!!
Since the Republicans won the house:
-unemployment extensions cut for families.
-Republicans holding up the START treaty
-Talks of war(with N. Korea)
-Back to the general feeling we are in danger, and no longer calm.
Enjoying your tea duped voters? (The President wasn't doing a bad job after all, perhaps).
Please remember, Mr Prez, that giving in to the Repubs IS NOT compromise. Please do NOT give in to their demands. No bailouts for billionaires!
I smell a SET-UP.
The word 'compromise' is NOT in the GOtP vocabulary. They don't know what it means or how to do it.
The agenda of the GOP doesn't include jobs or the economy or helping anyone but the rich!
Their goal for 2011is to IMPEACH PRESIDENT OBAMA!
Their only concern is the destruction of this President and reattaining power. period
Why is the media acting kkuje the republicans are going to do something different
To the President and all involved,
Instead of trying to guess what the american people want regarding the extension of tax cuts, consider the following:
Extend the tax cuts to a month past the next election. This would allow the candidates in the contest for president to run on the issue. There is no doubt that the American people will come out to vote so let them pick the candidate with the best overall plan for the country. The latter only works if candidates can articulate in a way that is both meaningful and understandable. The candidates would need to explain to the American voters the long term ramifications of each recommended tax policy. If all of you can not decide what to do then let us.
Hmm, dying to see what that is!!!
Nice to see a compromise. It's a Christmas miracle!
Now, let's wait for the details to see if it was a real compromise, or if one side gave in much more than the other.
Compromise – extend all tax cuts and unemployment benefits for two years
Everyone is for compromise or at least say that for political advantage.But then everyone has their own definition to what is the meaning of that word.
Awaiting the Obama tax hike.
what compromise...b.s....raise the tax on who make more than 200k....it is not victimizing...it is asking for nation's growth, and good....and progress...o.k...way to go obama...
