WASHINGTON (CNN) - The White House will fight Tuesday to get Democrats to support a last-minute deal on taxes that President Barack Obama hammered out with Republican leaders.
The compromise would extend the Bush-era tax cuts for two more years, keeping income tax rates at their current levels for everyone, as Republicans insisted. Obama and other Democrats wanted tax rates to rise only for individuals earning more than $200,000 a year and families making $250,000 or more a year.
It's bad enough that our President has shown a sincere lack of testicular fortitude by capitulating to the demands of Republican elected officials. Asking other Democrats to go along with this cave in is even worse. The GOP was holding the middle class hostage and Obama gave in to their demands. What Obama did is the equivilent to negotiating with terrorist and it's wrong!
Evil is defeating Good
Hate is overcoming Love
Lies are destroying the Truth
Fear is crushing Hope
The Future is bleak
