Video: President Obama
Addresses Fiscal Cliff,
Holds Firm on Tax Hikes

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/9/2012 1:35:55 PM

Just days after Tuesday’s presidential election, President Barack Obama invited Capitol Hill leaders to the White House for debt and spending meetings next week in order to discuss the country’s looming ‘fiscal cliff.’ On the election, he said that “the American people voted for action, not politics as usual.” (Snip) “You elected us to focus on your job, not ours and in that spirit, I’ve invited leaders of both parties to the White House next week so we can start to build consensus around the challenges that we can only solve together.”

Comments:
There is absolutely no difference in what he said four years ago. He "refuses to accept any approach that isn’t balanced." Same code words. He refuses to accept anything that isn't redistribution of wealth.

Obama threw a sound-bite to his stupid media....he is open to new ideas.
Then he buckled down.
The reality?
There's a DEM senate bill he is ready with his pen out to sign.
All Republicans in the House should do is rubber stamp it.

No meeting until the Dimms have a proposal on the table! They won, and they need to show everyone what they won for.

Before the Republicans consider any tax increases they should revisit all of the Democrat promises to cut spending going back to GHWB.

Promises from Democrats are shameful to hold.

It is time to shut the government down. I have a child in the military and if I have to support her to get her through a shut down, I will. The Republicans need to stand firm. They have been snookered twice already by promises of tax cuts that have never materialized. If they have to spend some of what is left from Romney's war chest to tell the American sheeple that we are broke and the gravy train is over, then do it.

Question:

Is the United States a better place than it was now that Obama has been reelected?

I dare Obama to stop falsely saying that he is for raising the taxes of millionaires and billionaires..and instead...

telling the truth and saying "I...me..Obama..want to raise taxes on those individuals making more than $200,000 and families making more than $250,000.

I double dog dare him. Coward.

The House of Representatives - not the President - is elected by the American people to tax. The House owns the purse. Let him go over the cliff by himself.

We need to stop expecting the Republicans to do differently than past behavior indicates - CAVE. Then, of course, they will say they did no such thing. Boehner's FIRST appearance showed he will not stand up to Obama. We can't fix this until we deal with things as they are not as we have kept hoping they will be.

Obama is ready now to punish the country for something he has held secret for a long time. We are colonizers and in his view we need to be punished for it.

The punishment will be economic misery for all.

Understand, this is an evil man in his heart.

Boehner, IMHO, should address the American people; "Elections have consequences, therefore even though I disagree with the president and think taxing the rich will drive the economy into the tank, I will not stand in the way of his plans." Prove the point once and for all!

If I was a rich I would take all my money out of the bank put it into some off-shore account and get the heck out of the country. Let the gimme, gimme, gimme crowd figure it out. I'm sick of punishing people for daring to make good for their families and companies. I'm sick of people being demonized for daring to make something of themselves. I'm sick of these freeloading welfare queens and gangsta wanna be's who think that what someone else has is theirs.

He could experiment raising taxes on his Hollywood celeb friends, Buffet, Soros and the rest of the Dems. He is so entrenched with wealth distribution the logical thing to do is to take from the Dems and redistribute to the rest of us. Now, that is a plan I could approve of.

This idiot is a narcissistic, stubborn and arrogant fool!

His proposed tax increase on the "wealthy" wound amount to a pimple on an elephant's --- and EVERYONE knows it, yet he insists on it, while asking for compromise.

Additionally, a tax increase on those earning 250k would be the foot in the door, with much more to come shortly thereafter.

I want the people that voted for this pig to suffer. I want their taxes to go up so they can't afford whatever their craven little hearts desire. I want the gnashing of teeth and big lips flapping in the breeze. That means me and mine will suffer also, but we'll pool together and get by. The Obama leaches will crumble.

More Private Sector Job Losses on the way which HE will be responsible for.

More Federal hiring of UNION (slavemaster) workers to implement Obamascare.

More misery.

If the Federal Government seized all assets of the 1% "Whitey" money, it would cover a few weeks of Government spending.

Increased taxes in whatever form won't put a dent in Federal Debt.

Sadly, moving large amounts of money offshore is not easy, nor cheap.

I tend to agree with the let it go. The GOP should announce loudly that they think that the agenda is wrong and will make matters worse but the voters wanted the Democrat policies so they get them. Any failures of these policies belong totally to the Democrats. Then abstain from voting.

We all are about to reap the whirlwind and it's going to get ugly real quick! Obama and his owners are determined to convert this country into a socialist paradise and unless Congress actually performs its constitutional duty it will happen.

Maybe, Boehner will hold the line on taxes. Maybe, Boehner will hold the line on debt. Why do we have this queasy feeling?

Is that why he spent 3.5 years campaigning for reelection?

Note to Boehner - your House team also won reelection, so ignore Valerie Jarrett and her puppet, Knucklehead Obama. These two are delusional, deceptive and devisive, and they do not have the best interests of the country in mind.

I am all for standing firm against this Marxist demagogue, as are many others on this board. But the problem with the notion of letting the Won own this mess as he takes us over the cliff is that the MSM will never hold him responsible for the resulting disaster, and he knows it.

So, look at things from Boehner's perspective. He's got two options:

1). Go along with Obama to retain lower tax rates for those not making a helluva lot of money and in many cases are struggling, knowing all along that you are further strangling the job creation engine, or

2) Stand firm, watch EVERYONE go over the fiscal cliff (Obama's not bluffing) and be crucified for it by an MSM which, like it or not, drives public opinion.

That is where we are, friends, and shrill calls to replace Boehner are futile and miss the larger point. The other side has all the weapons.

Whatever happens, don't simply hang it on a couple of politicians. We are in this pickle for a number of reasons which have grown over decades.

The unfortunate joke of this is folks like Romney, who make their money from Captial Gains and donate mega bucks really won't be impacted.

The Soros and Buffets don't earn sallaries. Unless they stop differentiating between wages and dividends/cap gains there will always be a dicrepancy.

In my view, there are two reasons for lower rates on cap gains: 1) taxes have ALREADY been paid; 2) more importantly, to offset for the effects of INFLATION, and we'll see lots of that soon enough.

Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

Eight Million ´Enrollments,´

Townhall, by Guy Benson    Original Article

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie previously predicted "hundreds of thousand of people" would sign up for Obamacare in the President´s home state. On Thursday, President Barack Obama tried to rally Democrats to

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans. Meanwhile, 67 percent of voters want Congress to keep investigating the IRS until

Reacting to Sunday´s hate crime at two Jewish centers in Kansas City, Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) introduced today a bill to update the government´s 20-year-old report on hate speech in the media. The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 would examine the role of the Internet and other telecommunications in encouraging hate crimes based on gender, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, and would provide recommendations to address such crimes. On Sunday, the eve of the Jewish Passover, a 73-year-old man shot and killed three people at the Jewish Community Center

Report: Obama Considering Bond
Hearings for Detained Illegal Immigrants

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to
