So Obama says he doesn't want to keep the tax cuts for the so called rich.
The Republicans want to keep everything status quo.
Some in congress say temporary for everyone or just the rich. There have been all kinds of scenerios. There will obviously be lots of name calling and arguing in the process. What do you think they should do? Remember there will be no new tax cuts or costs if everything is kept the same.

I find it so funny that people can b**** about raising taxes now, when the fact is we have had runaway spending AND tax cuts for almost a decade. We were gonna have to pay for it eventually.
Yeah, regarding that runaway spending...
How do you explain the above?! :o)

I guess my issue with it is that there are already so many families that are struggling to make ends meet and once these cuts expire that thread they have been holding onto will be cut. Our government spend a ridiculous amount of money prolonging this horrible economy on the 'hopes' that their reckless spending would improve the economy and it didn't happen. Had they just left things alone then we would have likely been past the worst of the pain by now. But instead they borrowed a butt load of money that we owe back WITH INTEREST, it didn't improve a damned thing that it was supposed to and now we are seeing clearly that we will have to feel the pain eventually. I wonder how many families are about to lose everything due to irresponsible policy and power grabs. Not everyone can afford an increase in taxes. I guess these are things that liberals and conservatives will never agree on.
