Obfuscation above the real story is how are we going to pay down our deficit? It won't be by raising taxes. we could take every dime from the so called rich and not make a dent in it! We need to look at cutting Social Security, medicare and the budget busting obamacare. If we want to be able to keep them in any form. Better to get something than nothing where the Obama regime is taking us with it's antienergy agenda and money printing by the truck load devalueing our currency!
