Give the pres what he wants. Raise taxes as much as he wants, but only on those who add nothing to the wealth of the nation. For example, the gambling industry merely redistributes money - one gambler takes money from another. Nothing new is created. Other examples are stock brokers, hedge funds, lobbyists, actors, football players, government workers, union officials, community organizers, politicians and TV pundits... Tax these as much as Oblameya wants and the economy will not be harmed. You can then cut taxes on the REAL WEALTH creators; manufacturers, farmers, miners, shippers,....

WASHINGTON - If you thought the presidential election would lead to an early break in the fiscal gridlock that now divides our government, think again.

President Obama's post-election press conference on Wednesday signaled he is digging in for a lengthy political battle to raise tax rates amid new evidence the economy is still very weak and will likely remain so for the foreseeable future if not throughout his second term.

If anything, he's taking a tougher tone with Republicans in Congress as he prepares for negotiations with House Speaker John Boehner and other House and Senate leaders on Friday....
