Washington (CNN) - Spoiler alert: The Senate on Monday will not get the 60 votes needed to move ahead with the so-called Buffett Rule, which makes critics think the White House spent a week pushing it just to make a political point.
Shocking, we know.
"This is Obama's strategy: 'Look over here at this shiny object here. Don't look at the big picture, an economy on the brink that I didn't do a thing about and made things worse.
He didn't do anything about the economy that George Bush almost dove off a cliff? In your criticism, you sound like a complete liar and a blatant spreader of misinformation.
It's a start.
The only things the R's are offering as a "start" is to totally dismantle soc. sec. and medicare.
What country is this? rules by the top 1%? Citizen's United anyone?
They led us into Iraq with lies, they'll take our lives thru their lies. The republicans will stop at nothing to get "that one" out of office".
It is not about to dent the debt, it is about to pay fair share. Poor people have been paying their share indirectly. Now it is the turn of the rich to play their part. What is needed is fair and balanced. It should not be only on Fox News, it should be also on federal level!
"Shocking, we know."
Polls show that 60% want the Buffet rule enacted. In other words, 60% feel that hitting those wealthier than themselves think it's OK to do so, since it doesn't affect them.
45billion is nothing to the republicans ,unless its to benifets their cronies like the oil companies or healthcare,,that was a lot of money when the auto bailout of Detroit that benifets the auto workers that they were againest .Dem landslide coming in Nov . Republicans should be thrown out of government at all levels in Nov.
Wealthy Americans despise their country, or they would not spend so much on other matters and do nothing to build it up.
