    It's cute he still has this idea of bipartisanship in his head. It's like he's the one paying the least amount of attention to what he's already tried.

    Exactly. I mean, WTF? Grow a spine for fvcks sake! The republitards are walking all over the Pres and his policies and it seems to me like he thinks if he keeps giving in they are eventually going to work with him, but their not. Bipartisanship is dead, give it up already and accomplish something please before its too late.

    So Obama's idea of "hardball negotiation" is to say upfront what he's willing to accept, and start there?

    W....T....F.... ?!!??

    This is a huge issue. He's been given 2 issues on which the American public TOTALLY AGREE WITH HIM ON, a) continuing tax cuts for the middle class and b) lowering the national debt.

    I've lost all respect for this guy...

    This unlikely plan sounds a lot better than the article quoted above (thread here):

    I'm so confused, are they reading the actual .pdf proposal that I linked before? Because if you actually read it, on pages 24-28 there are 3 different tax options, and on page 24 there are 4 different scenarios / tax rates, including what the rates should be if all tax expenditures (not deductions, lol) went away, if some of them went away, or if none of them went away. There isn't *one* plan that they're recommending, there are multiple options........
