Oppose GOP Tax Plan
doesn't care what voters want - why?
Republicans have argued that the
midterm elections have given them a mandate on what they are
calling one of the most important issues facing America, the extension
of the Bush-era tax cuts.
"The American people want us to stop all the looming tax hikes and to
cut spending, and that
should be the priority of the remaining days that we have in this
Congress," The Boner said Thursday.
Boner added that a House vote Thursday to extend the cuts for all but
the highest-earning Americans
amounted to "chicken crap."
According to a new CBS News poll, however, Boehner is off-base in his
claim that Americans
"want us to stop all the looming tax hikes."
The poll finds that 53 percent of Americans want the Bush-era tax cuts
extended only for households
earning less than $250,000 per year. That roughly matches the proposal
put forth by the White House,
which wants to extend the cuts only for incomes less than $250,000 for
families and $200,000 for individuals.
Excuse me, but that's not accurate.
That's Obama's pre-cave position that's as solid as wet toilet paper.
Just 26 percent of Americans say they
support extending the cuts for all Americans,
even those earning above the $250,000 level, which is the GOP proposal.
So why can't Obama hear the people?
Why is Obama fighting his base AND the majority of voters?
We finally see some fight
from him - and it's against us?
