    •  Ha, anna shane, 'double dog dare you ' !!!!! (8+ / 0-)

      However, as kos wrote the other day that, based on past results, Obama often backs away from threats he makes.  

      I 'have my fingers crossed', for sure, but 'not going to hold my breath' .

          is the Bush cuts still in effect for those who make between 250K & 450K?

          That was a promise and a threat that the amount wouldn't go up.  But it did, meaning Republicans got 99.4% of what they wanted.

          Republican tax policies have led to financial conditions which have caused Republicans to demand cuts to programs they have always opposed.

            he wants to make a grand bargain, he wants to get an agreement in place that will last, and allow us to get our economy going.  He is willing to cut social security, just not benefits or the age limit.  Without the threat he's eager and  willing to compromise.  

            That's him, he was that in the primary and he's still that.  He'll offer them something less than he did before, but more than our left (which includes me) wants. No one will be entirely happy, he'll leave no one out.  

            He won't balance the budget with cuts to the needy, but he'll probably make some cuts on the upper middle class.  He gave them that break, but he'll take it back in closing loopholes and in eliminating certain subsidizes.   He's got professionals in place, he has a plan and he knows his own limits.
