Obama signed the Budget Law on Aug 2nd, 2011. It was bipartisan legislation.

That's - beautiful. The new conservative ethos boiled down to one sentence.

Look here, as any Republican knows-the truth is a mere deception designed to remove doubt so as to make propaganda useless. In resorting to such tactics as presenting facts, the left proves they are a hopeless bunch of dreamers who think rather than feel or believe.

We must fight this assault on our beliefs lest we lose our freedom to ignore science and reality.

Yes, and it's just as illegal for a billionaire to sleep in the park as it is for a homeless person.

To all my G.O.P. friends that warn us about how dire the deficit problem is, having the tax-cuts expire is the best way to reduce the deficit. They never accomplished their goal of producing prosperity or jobs.
Wrong again. There was NO surplus under Clinton AND revenues INCREASED after the tax cuts went into effect.

Err, even using Accrual Accounting, there was a surplus.

Why do I get the impression that, if Obama were to raise taxes now, it wouldn't be called "The Obama Tax Increases", but instead would be called "Obama's Repeal of the Bush Tax Cuts"?

By that "logic", those tax cuts shouldn't even have been called the "Bush Tax Cuts" in the first place.

They would correctly be called "Bush's correction to the Clinton Tax Increases of 1993".

Word.

Go ahead Obama, raise taxes.

Do it today, since you and your minions keep saying that it's what the American people want.

You do not have the courage.

As usual.

Bush deserves credit for initiating them, they were tax CUTS, and they were and are a good thing.

I don't think Obama deserves credit for maintaining the status quo when he wants to raise taxes.
