      already have a maxed out credit card!! Please you all act as if President Obama invented deficit spending.  At least he is trying to utilize it to get us out of the crisis we are in. Republicans just like deficit spending to increase their wealth.

      I support the President.

        •  The tax cuts are the part of the deal everyone is (0+ / 0-)

          bitching about. Did you read the entire bill?  What about the assistance for college students? What about the middle class tax cuts? What about the unemployment extension for 13 months?  What about the 100% expensing for businesses beginning January 1?  What about the child tax credit?  What about the 2 year extension of the Research and Development tax cut?

          If the new Republican Congress had to vote on this in January do you think they would have included any of the assistance other than tax cuts for the rich?  What about the unemployed. Did you just want a fight for a fights sake even if people who are already suffering suffered more?

          You obviously don't understand that the rich will always get theirs.  They can't be denied. What is not given to them they can afford the best tax attorneys and accoutants and get anyway.  It is the poor and the middle class who are dependent upon the largess of the government.

          I support the President.

        That's pretty silly.
