Why is Obama holding the tax cuts hostage?

NOW it's Obama holding them hostage not the pubs..(some seem to overlook that some DEMS were on the pubs side with these cuts too!)

  • Why are republicans holding unempoyment benefits hostage?

    ~ So demanding the funds to support this entitlement program come from somewhere, is classified as "holding hostage". Please, enlighten us on where the money to fund UE extensions should come from, if not from
    Unused stimulus?

  • So, in other words, he doesn't want to use unspent stimulus or TARP funds to pay for the UE extension? That man has a severe spending habit. He needs rehab.

  • Because he has an agenda, just like everyother politician.

    Those of you who think that the republicans are some kind of heroes have blinders on. They are all politicians, all with an agenda, who are working for those who got them elected...the people and special interests who donated a lot to thier campaigns so they could be elected.

    I am soooooooooo sick of the partisan bullshit.

  • Well let me see. Didn't Nancy Pelosi tell us that unemployment stimulated the economy? It seems appropriate that the stimulous money be spent to stimulate the economy.

    I agree, all politicians are owned by special interests.
