No, that is why he only wants the tax cuts for the $200,000/$250,000 to expire.

The LEADERS of the GOP expect the president to negotiate what they, the GOP, want as well as negotiate his own side. Meanwhile, the LEADERS of the GOP will sit back and do what they have done for four years--nothing.

Did it ever occur to you to ask why wages stayed stagnant? AND you are not going to be getting a raise anytime soon... why do you think that is?

Because the $$$ is going to the increasing pay of executives instead.

Um... yeah... more layoffs mean higher numbers of people on food stamps and living in poverty. That's what you voted for.

Actually, the lower wages are the biggest cause of increase in food stamps and poverty.

Add more unemployment to that, too. Employers will be forced to lay off more workers because of the increased costs of ObamaCare and higher tax rates. You voted for that.

In looking at this thing Ive been doing some thinking. I'm pretty sure OBama has every intention of not doing a thing and letting everything just slide. Reason being his proposal is simply a mockery, he would know this as well we know all of his cohorts realize the insulting proposal. Second reason, with the mockery a weird idea that commercializing to even the point of travelling around as though on campaign an attempt to set up a presummed blame for an outcome well known, due to his plan to let er go.

This seems to be the decided focus of attention...its all part of a plan. He's going to let er go and when the hardship comes say his favorite line...

Whats Important : is I did everything I could (smoke-screening all along asking everyone to ignore the lack of any attention and work in negotiations.

I think its the plan. Trying to shove Brohner and all concerned with intelligent idea's and hope spiraling into the abyss of what is deliberately and with mischief planned ahead all along.....so I think what we may be seeing is nothing but more of the same right up until Obama takes off for the holidays and just waddles back as though ok well here I am and it looks like all this is everyones fault but mine..... never ending controversies all swirling around Mr Problematic and his smokescreens...I think he enjoys it, its his style and at everyones expense pretty much on everything. As I remember saying before the election, Obama would divide a little plant in a pot just by walking by it.

These "employers" are nothing but cry babies. Let an employer try living on the low wage they pay their employees.
