After summit, Obama and GOP still far apart on tax cuts

NEW YORK ( - The Obama administration and congressional leaders have begun talks toward a deal on extending Bush-era tax cuts, President Obama said after a meeting with representatives of both parties Tuesday.

"That process is beginning right away, and we expect to get some answers back in the next couple of days," Obama said after Tuesday's meeting at the White House.

    Obama is right, they we don't want gridlock. We just want what ever he wants stopped. But of course the narcissistic, meglomaniac, incompetent, inept, corrupt, union toady thinks it is all about him. The Nigerian idiot does not have a clue.

    Hey I am not disapointed because I know the repugs got to reward big corporations for spending billions of dollars woodwinkling the American people's mind for them to win back the house, I know that they're not compromise. I am worried about Obama giving in to the same people that want to see his demise, and doesn't care if the country is jacked up in the process. LESSON OBAMA! This repugs are mot reinvesting their dans money the people spending with them. They have it by the trillions on the side lines and refuse to put the peoe back to work. You have no choice but to take their 7 billion doars worth of tax money and directly put 6 to 7 million people to work. Cutting the unemployment rate to 6 or 7 percent. The state will get their money through state taxes and the big corporations will feast on the epic demand such move will make, creating countless small business opertunities, and hiring even more workers.

    The only jobs created by the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy are those of GOP elected officials because the rich donate big bucks to the GOP.

    Tax cuts for billionaires is a great idea, the economy has stalled, my job got outsourced and Congress can't agree on much of anything.
