Obama: Raise Tax On The Rich....For Tthe (Murdered) Children

The pathetic little man the American people have seen fit to elect President twice just wrapped up a press conference. The purpose of the event was to announce Joe Biden will head up a task force on what steps should be taken in the wake of the Newtown massacre. Most of the questions however focused on the "fiscal cliff".

Obama then when went where no decent human being would. He tied his tax proposals to the deaths of 20 innocent children.

It is a deal that can get done, but it is not going to be -- it cannot be done if every side wants 100 percent. And part of what voters were looking for is some compromise up here. That’s what -- that’s what folks want.

They understand that they’re not going to get 100 percent of what they want. And for some reason, that message has not yet taken up on Capitol Hill. And when you think about what we’ve gone through over the last couple of months -- a devastating hurricane, and now one of the worst tragedies in our memory, the country deserves folks to be willing to compromise on behalf of the greater good and not tangle themselves up in a whole bunch of ideological positions that don’t make much sense.

Obama is forever pretending to be Mr. Middle of the Road, the one person willing to put his ideology aside. It's always the evil Republicans who bitterly cling to their positions. Why Republicans are so mean that not even 20 dead children will change their mind about tax rates, entitlement reform and deficit reduction.

Disgusting.

In more traditional news, Obama says Boehner's Plan B is a non-starter because raising taxes on millionaires is really a tax cut for them and a tax hike on the middle class.

The speaker is now proposing what he calls Plan B. So he says, “Well, this would raise taxes only on folks making $1 million or more.” What that means is, an average of a $50,000 tax break for every millionaire out there. At the same time as we’re not providing unemployment insurance for 2 million people who are still out there looking for work. It actually means a tax increase for millions of working families across the country, at the same time as folks like me would be getting a tax break.

Why negotiate with someone who is living in an alternate universe? Just pass Plan B and go home for the holidays. The GOP is going to get slammed no matter what so do what you think is best and let Obama do what he wants.

Speaking of Plan B....Grover Norquist is cool with it. So there's that. Or something.

It's going to be a very long 4 years.
