Axelrod: No big changes to tax deal

Washington (CNN) - President Barack Obama's senior adviser ruled out any major changes to the tax package negotiated with Republicans, saying Sunday that it is time to move forward on a compromise that includes elements distasteful to each side.

In an interview on CNN's "State of the Union," David Axelrod said the focus must be on what is best for the country right now, rather than scoring political points or settling political scores.

    If Obama wants to win the 2012 election then he needs to dump the democrats and switch his loyalty's to the republicans .

    What this country does NOT need to do right now, is squander 900 billion dollars.
