Do you approve of how President Obama is handling fiscal cliff negotiations?

Obama doesn't care at all. He wants to drive the country into the ground. If he cared he would have kept his word and presented an honest proposal instead of changing it. It is a shame the media is a propaganda machine for a horrible person.

He just doesn't think Americans are smart enough to see the harm he's doing to the country. Or if they see it, he's convinced that he has enough of them in the entitlement class as takers that he'll be able to continue to prevail over those who have to pay the bills.

You want compromise, then lets talk Clinton-era taxes AND Clinton-era spending levels. That's compromise!

Rasta our problem may be with the progressives definition of 'compromise'. MrO has not provided one honest compromise. All he's offered is to slow the growth, not actually cut anything. This after he has significantly increased the budgets of most departments. That's not compromise.

JMatsby ... yep, there's a real possibility that this isn't about leadership one the nation, but just a game. As you say, MrO shouldn't do what he was elected to do. He should stuff the tough decisions to those with a backbone. Maybe he should just quit and hand the reins to those willing to lead

Obama said in the first debate he would accept a plan with 2 or 3 dollars in tax cuts for every new dollar in revenue. He then rejected the offer of 1.5 cuts to new revenue. He countered with a "balanced" plan of tax increases AND spending increases. He's GOT to be smoking pot in the Oval Office.

What people don't seem to "get" is that there's no way in hell that the massive debt will be repaid anytime soon; yes budgets and spending MUST be reduced, but it's also simple necessary to increase taxes.

Bch is just another cult obama follower. It is not blasphemy to disagree with O's policies. And... He was "elected" by a small margin. That does not put him in the driver's seat. He HAS TO play nice with others if he can contain his ego.

The problem, @veritas, is that conservatives have agreed to tax/debt ceiling hikes, in return for future tax cuts, numerous times over the years. Magically, the taxes/debt always goes up, but the spending cuts never materialize. We're about done getting fucked over.

No, of course he doesn't hate himself. Listen to any liberal talk for long enough, and you'll hear a common thread: Everyone else (but me) should have to pay more taxes; everyone else should have less firearms freedoms; everyone else should have to have Obamacare. See a pattern yet?

Obamacare is a shit storm in a drinking fountain. Bottom line, it's terrible. Private insurance will likely go away for all but the very wealthy, and the rest of us will be stuck with rationed care, rationed meds, fewer doctors, nurses and hospitals, and longer wait times for treatment.

Bullshit Rasta. Obama has circumvented Congress through executive orders, agency regulations, etc., etc. every chance he's had. The man simple does not want to obey our system of government. He needs to resign. It's the only honorable thing left for him to do.

10% flat tax, locked to GDP, with 8% for expenses, and 2% for a 'rainy day' fund. Only way to increase revenue is to increase GDP.
We'd have to pay of the debt first, I suppose.

That's right, give Mr no-clue-how-to-solve-a-problem Obama what he wants on the taxes. Then when it fails, because confiscating 100% of the wealthy's money would only fuel MrO's spending for 8 days, it will be MrO's failure.

Think, it's one thing to jump into a conversation and it's another thing to jump in without any facts to back up your argument. You are kind of embarrassing yourself. Both Obama and Boehner have made compromises, whether or not you agree with them is a different story. Ironic name.

I said the same thing about Boehner...I'm the only one on this app with any consistency. 3rd party everybody. Anybody with a D or an R I front of their name is putting party and ideology ahead of common sense, logic and the good of the country. D's and R's are BOTH responsible for this mess.
