okay, tax increases are coming but to add to it - sequestration: $2.3 Billion cuts to Education, including Special ed. $5.6 Billion cuts to Medicare Hospital payments. $591 Million in cuts to the prescription drug program, 9.4% across the board cuts to our military - $3.9 Billion cuts to Operations and Maintenance and $4.2 Billion in cuts to Air Force and Navy Aircraft impacting civilian contractors and very good jobs here in the US. Yet Obama is playing political chicken instead of working honestly and fairly with the GOP. Do you really think Boehner has anywhere to go? He has to avoid the sequestration to preserve some of this nation. I give him credit for trying to act honorably, but he's dealing with a snake.
