tuttle, Granted it's always going to be a preceived win win for Obama. I think Obama wants the negoiations to fail. Then the economy tanks and he blames Republicans. I don't think he ever thought Republicans are going to sign this deal. The ponzi scheme is going to burst. The stock market is going to tank. The blame Bush strategy is officially a dead horse. Higher taxes will do nothing to prevent the ponzi scheme from bursting.

yet buffoon buffett has said that higher taxes on the rich will make the middle class feel better

as I have posted, my morale would be vastly improved if I knew that the parasites were starting to pay their fair share of supporting the infrastructure they leach off of but pay nothing to support

since comrade hussein copntinues to blather about fairness, perhaps he might give us his definition of what is fair

It's a win win rigged game just the way the Washingtonians want it. During Christmas season. No matter what happens they will be able to obuscate the truth.
Democrats have said that that their priorities when it comes to a fiscal cliff deal are to raise more tax revenue and make the tax code more progressive.

Which is why it's odd to see them drawing a line in the sand on raising tax rates.

Raising marginal income tax rates is one of the most economically harmful ways to raise taxes. (The only provisions of the tax code that are more damaging are the corporate income tax and taxes on savings and investments.) Perhaps the only explanation is that Democrats don't actually care about...
