So what's the starting point going to be? The good news says that the President doubled down on his promise to end the tax cuts this year.. but the income level at which it will begin is still up in the air. Obama needs to keep his promise for all us millions that got him elected... because of this promise. I mean screw negotiating... he has a mandate now. But what are the odd of the republicans agreeing to it? What do you think the end number is going to be?
