Obama lauds payroll tax cut extension

(CNN) - President Barack Obama said Friday that Congress's extension of the payroll tax holiday is "some good news just in the nick of time for the holiday."

But "we have a lot more work to do. This continues to be a make-or-break moment for the middle class in this country," he said.

  1. The Greedy Old PIgs have declared class war on US!

    "A year-free of Obama insanity and class warfare."

    The class warfare was started by the GOBP deathcult about 30 years ago. Apparently overly-sensitive people like you and Greggy get all butt-hurt went this is pointed out. Your deathcult long ago lost the benefit of the doubt as to whether or not they cared about average Americans. Need proof? Here ya go:

    Ask a GOBP deathcultist what sacrifices the wealthy should be sharing along with the rest of us. You'll get no answer.
    Ask a GOBP deathcultist why s/he ignores the will of two thirds of the country, including over half the 1%ers, who want the Bush tax cuts ended and a millionaire's surtax. The fact nothing has changed is ample proof the GOBP deathcult answers only to a very small and very hidden elite seeking to exploit the rest of America.
    Ask a GOBP deathcultist if they will admit tax cuts for the ultrarich create jobs. They will lie and say yes.
    Ask a GOBP deathcultist why the so-called "Party of Personal Responsibility" refuses to accept responsibility for its role in the deficit's size.

    So there you go. The FACTS clearly demonstrate what many of you extreme rightwing radicals refuse, or are unable, to see. The GOBP IS a cult, based not on reality but on a shared mythology. It worships money and power, obtained through war and the sweat of others. So, burdens on you now: prove that the GOBP deathcult cares about anyone or anything except a small fraction hidden among the elites, who work behind the scenes corrupting our economy and government.
