    Buying food and replacing worn out appliances actually puts more jobs into the economy than buying yachts.

    “Nothing will change except will now be called Obama Tax cuts.”

    Which will magically make them dangerous and wasteful, just because he supported them?

    Funny, I noticed he wanted to keep only part of them. Personally, I think allowing all to expire might be better - the money from them is not particularly significant on the personal level, and might be better left to handle the deficit and/or for more valuable programs.

    Way to promote a better America. Encourage class envy and split the people. No such thing as a long range plan just get re-elected.

    Libertarian1 says this will “ENCOURAGE class envy and split the people.” In my middle class world, we envy the wealth of the top 2%, and know we have little in common with them.

    ^ So do you stop seeing Yankee games? Do you stop going to the movies? Do you watch Oprah?

    That is where the top 2% is and you support them. They worked hard to achieve their gains. Envy is one of the deadly sins.

    ^To 2 percent…

    With an american population of 309,162,581, that two percent is 6 183 251 people.

    Oprah and the Yankees (or all of Hollywood) are six million people??? WOAAAAH!

    I’m just glad to see more and more reason show up in the media to counter the fertilizer pumped out all day on Faux News.

    Article today describing NYC. If you don’t live here you will not understand.

    Married couple- 2 children

    He is a fireman and knows and works the system and gets many overtime hours.

    She is a teacher with a masters degree + 32 hours. She has taught 15+ years. Between them they earn $200,000-$250,000 plus percs.

    The 2 children go to private school. Minimum $25,000/year each.

    They are your upper 2% and part of the 6,183,251.

    ^ Don’t tell righties stories like that. You won’t get any compassion from them. You’re lucky nobody called those guys “crack addicts”.
