    that more taxes = lost jobs.  

    By not raising taxes/revenues there will not be enough money to pay for social programs meaning the deficit/debt will keep increasing and eventually a Republican President (or Obama) will decide "welp, we gotta axe major spending because we can't afford it" rather than raising necessary revenues.  This $250,ooo tax threshold is nickle and dime-ing the major issue anyways.  It's kabuki to say "now rich are shouldering some of the burden" when they plan is to savage spending on social programs.  

    Obama is a Conservadem in the mold of Warner, McCaskill, Landrieu, Bennet etc.  

    Dems have the WH and Senate - why do we have to bend and negotiate away so much?  Call the GOP House on their shit, if it's not a bluff than so be it.  If you keep giving into their hostage taking they'll keep asking for more and more.  

    The NRA is the Gun Manufacturer Lobby. Nothing more. Their pontification about the second amendment is nothing more than their ad jingle. They're the domestic version of the Military Industrial Complex.

      Bush didn't get what he campaigned on either.
