    The question is, in my opinion, how much will Obama conceed or will he totally sell out the electorate. He has pretty much conceeded everything to the Republicans in the past, despite the republican objection to it. I tend to think of The Cliff as part of a mega trend, the money is being devalued to take away our power. This isn’t going to hurt the rich who are multi-national anyway and own no alliegence to the US and would rather not pay taxes here. The middle class has further devestation to look forward to.

    Obama is just another corporatist in democratic clothing.

    So Leftie Jeff thinks we aren’t going to raise taxes high enough during the fifth year of a horrible economy. How many jobs will those higher taxes produce Jeffrey?

    Here’s an idea…how about Congress pass legislation that would actually make it more attractive for corporations to move jobs BACK to the United States that they have shipped to India, or Taiwan, or China, or wherever?
    Perhaps tax incentives based on how many new plants a company opens in a fiscal year, or how many new employees it hires in the same time?
    Oh, wait…that might actually mean capital expenditures for the Multinational Corporations that own the Republican Party, and that might cut into the Mega-Million Dollar Salaries of the CEOs.!
    Heaven forbid that THAT might happen…
    And why pay an American Worker even Minimum wages, when they can get the same work done in Bangladesh for about $2 a day per Worker?
    Gotta protect that all-important Bottom Line, you know!

    I predict that Obama, Reid & Pelosi are doing the same old, same old, Democrat trickery that gave Reagan and Bush the Elder and now the GOP House the old “promise them spending cuts for tax hikes, and later renege on the spending cuts”….
    Obama has stated (Sunday 12/30/12, NBC Meet/Press)
    that “I cut spending by Over a trillion dollars in 2011” although the Exec.Branch Office of Management & Budget “says that fed spending increased by $147 Billion from fiscal 2010 to fiscal 2011.” IMO Obama lied.
    -
    OMB numbers= fiscal 2010 Obama spent $3,456,213,000
    and increased spending to $3,603,213,000 in fiscal 2011.
    my source= http://cnsnews.com
    if you disagree, go argue with the OMB.

    I had to laugh when I read that Donald Trump thinks the Republicans are the worst negotiators ever.

    Obama has been TRYING to work WITH the GOP since day 1! I kindof wish they had NOT reached a deal.

    I, too, wish that Obama were less willing to concede points to the Republicans, but if we remember that politics is the art of the possible, he hasn’t done too badly overall. This current deal is certainly not a liberals dream, but it’s better than not having a deal. If the House Republicans turn it down, they will look pretty bad. For my conservative friends — I’m happy to talk about cuts in spending, but I would like to see specific suggestions, with some analysis of who gets hurt.

    That’s an admirable sentiment and there have been all sorts of “amnesty” proposals to repatriate American monies and jobs back to here. The issue is one Steve Jobs told to Obama a couple of years ago. He said he would never move production of Apple products back to the U.S. because we cannot match the quality of production at the cost that Foxtron (the Chinese) charge. Now Tim Cooke has given a placating comment to O’s administration that they are going to move the Mac computer back here. It is the least of their profit machines and has been declining in sales for years, so it’s no big sacrifice.

    The real issue is wage and capital competition. America no longer has the infrastructure to manufacture as it once did and labor is still much more expensive than Asians can provide. It’s not all China. Now it’s Viet Nam, India, Central America and some Eastern European countries that are manufacturing our products.

    @lonecat

    Don’t forget to add the second part of your challenge of specific cuts. In addition to just what cuts, give a second list limited only to the cuts/closed loopholes that you benefit from. oh, and don’t limit the analysis to who gets hurt, remember many of the cuts the republican’s want to make would eviscerate environmental protections as an example.

    @mickey1339

    I appreciate the example and assessment of the impact of crapple’s “altruistic” gesture. But you still have to remember that as narcissists go, jobs is the narcissists’ narcissist. He cared about no one or nothing but himself. On that note I guess he’s the republicans’ republican too.

    Boehner, Cantor, and McConnell have earned a trip to Abu Ghraib for an “orientation”. It’s time to stop giving into them, and give them a little “Cheney love” instead.
