There is nothing new in this compromise deal. There is nothing here that will change what's been going on for the past 2 yrs. Why is the President and the Democrats saying it will grow the economy? Do you think it will? Why?Answer Question

i am against the deal all together, but there is something new in the deal. When they are aying it will help the economy, they are talking about the payroll ss tax cut. This is new, it is going to put more money into the peoples pocket, and they are going to spend it. I am against the whole thing. The tax cuts for the rich is just a giveaway, that part is the same as always, and isn't going to help,just like it hasn't for the last decade.

Businesses are not stupid and they know this is going to be rehashed in 2 yrs. There is nothing here to give confidence
This is just a silly talking point. What you are saying is the bill made the tax cuts permanent, that all of a sudden they would say oh now we can hire, my mind is at ease. That is bull, as long as they can make record profits by not hiring, that is what they will continue to do.

GOP pressed the tax deal with the idea that it would stimulate the economy, yet it's known that the rich hoard their money. Heck even the middle class will if they're able. Saving is smarter right now than spending.... As far as businesses, they have no interest in changing what's been working for them for the past 2 years. Every employee doing the work of 2 people, no reason to hire another body. The tax deal will not help, everyone including the Pres and the GOP are clearly not seeing the forest for the trees, just a temporary appeasment for those in power. The people will continue to suffer...

IMO, small business did not fair well in this lasted round-I can not see them hiring more people-nothing has changed for this group and we all know there was little job growth in the last 3 years. A TEMPORARY tax cut just adds more gas to the fire because the subject will need to be revisited at some point down the line. Bernanke made it pretty clear our current "job" crisis is likely to be the norm for the next 5-6 years...we have likely just placed many folks farther down the hole. The EU was the tit for tat. IMO, a deal made in order to secure those BTCs for those making over a million. Politics as usual-let's see how it will change next month.
