So you thought is that before it was a compromise, or did Obama just fail to lead? The deal was mutual, GOP gave up revenue, Obama cut entitlements. Now it is not fiscal it is poor politics? Great way to lead country
What you fail to realize is that Obama plans directly hits the middle class. My 401k and retirement are all going to be reduced when the taxes on capital gains is increased. That is where the majority of the middle class wealth lies. So, get your drop off blood by raising taxes on the rich, because without closing the loopholes they'll just move more money overseas, or hide it and not one penny of revenue will be increased.
