In general I think Obama is quite excellent President.
I sent him a lot of money so he would win!
He has done many good things, but also over the past years he has disappointed us with several wimpy compromises.
So about the Bush tax cuts. We need Obama to stand tough. If the rates are raised on everyone, so be it. The rates can always be lowered on the middle class.
But if Obama agrees to some bs compromise, that is no good. Don't compromise on a future framework or some deductions. That just won't cut it.
Obama ran on a platform that he would let the rates on the wealthy go up when the Bush tax cuts expire. He won convincingly. The Democrats are in the drivers seat. The Republicans are in disarray. We don't have control of the House, but pretty close, so only a few Republican defectors could swing the vote our way.
So he should hold to his platform. And we need to let him know- we sent him money and we worked overtime, and now he should stand up for what he said he would do.
Come on, Barack!
