Obama really just wants to be able to spend as much money as he sees fit. They are doing everything they can to make the republicans look bad. They reached a tax deal and just postponed all spending cuts. The republicans need to stand their ground here. I means seriously what have the democrats given up on any issues. It's time to dig in and tell Obama tough we need to reduce spending and if your willing to hold the country hostage so you can spend all u want well we aren't going to let that happen. No democrat will admit it but if we keep running these trillion dollar deficits there is only one way to fix it. Tax the crap out of EVERYONE. That's right not just the rich. At the rate Obama is spending just raising taxes on the wealthy wont cover it. In 10-15 we will all be looking at 30%+ taxes.
