First the guantanamo reversal now tax cuts extension. I can't believe this guy's galling political calculation. These horrible, evil, immoral Bush tax cuts were a 'giveaway' to the rich during campaign season but now they are necessary to stave off recession. Can liberals ever be honest, ever? By putting off the tax raises to 2012 Obama is calculating that it will put him into a fight with a republican congress and he can be the good guy wanting to give to the poor. Democrats look the other way while hoping the obvious will not be mentioned- that raising taxes is much easier with an all democrat gov't. Oh and the black religious leaders are calling the tax cuts a moral outrage http://media.www.districtchronicles...Leaders.Denouce.Recent.Tax.Deal-3967632.shtml Nothing more stupid than a black liberal racist. One adds to the deficit by spending more, not taxing less. No serious evidence... despite what real economists say... and if there is no evidence then why the hell would Obama extend them while he has a democratic congress? Without researching I am willing to bet that black people have recieved more in handouts these last 3 years than TARP ($50B), I also wonder whether black america even pays for itself. We know illegals are a net negative on gov't budgets, I think blacks are too but that will never stop them from calling for their 'fair share'. 'moral outrage' yes indeed.
