Obama willing to go over fiscal cliff,
according to White House leaks

Daily Caller, by Neil Munro

White House sources are telling Democratic reporters that the president is willing to go over the so-called “fiscal cliff” if GOP leaders don’t agree to his demand for higher tax rates on the wealthy without substantive spending cuts. A political deadlock would mean an automatic tax increase for middle-class and wealthy Americans on January 1, and the opportunity for Obama and the Democrats to push a tax-cutting bill for middle-class voters in 2013, say the White House officials, who leaked the claim to two liberal columnists.Republican lawmakers, including House Speaker John Boehner, say they are opposed

Of course he is. He is not at all opposed to a tax increase on everybody. He just knows that he has to pretend that he doesn´t want to raise taxes on the middle class, when in fact he would indeed like to do that very thing.

Yes, of course he WANTS to go "over the briar patch cliff". That would be manna from heaven for him: MORE MONEY to spend.

As Dean said, that is the best they can get: more money and DEFENSE STRIPPED TO BARE BONES.

Are you all gettin´ it now??!!!

That said, I think the republicans can vote for the "middle class" tax breaks and...well I won´t spill the beans just now.

BHO´S economic troika headed off the fiscal cliff is his demand for increased taxes, increased spending, increased debt limit ad infinitum. Let them be, then listen for the rumblings for war from the mountains through the prairie to the oceans; WE THE PEOPLE WILL BE ON THE MARCH.

[[[“Obama would then demand in early January that the new Congress immediately pass legislation to reinstate the lower tax rates for the bottom 98 percent,” wrote Corn.]]]

And the GOP will refuse and insist on real tax reform. They will have the leverage for that if we go over the cliff.

That´s the scenario as the Democrat Party sees it. Some issues:

1) Will they extend the Payroll Tax Holiday even though our entitlements are in the red?
2) How long will they extend the Bush rates?
3) Since the Rich will only pay 42 next year, what cuts will they use to offset the 263 billion increased spending for the non-Rich?
4) What will the cut to offset the new spending on tax cuts?

The Democrat rhetoric has been entirely based on the Bush cuts being solely for the wealthy. It will destroy 10 years of strategy to let people know the truth. If they go off the cliff for 42 billion from the rich, trigger a recession, and then go back to extend the cuts for a year, the recession will continue. The cuts for 1 year won´t stop the recession. Then the increased taxes will extend it.

Obama´s priority is to destroy the Republicans so the D´s can take the House in 2014. If they do, they will implement full socialism. Until then the media´s job will be to continue demonizing Republicans 24/7 for any negative news on the planet.

I guess no one in the media wants to tell us that the ´´fiscal cliff´´ is the product of the Erskin-Bowles commission put together by Zippy and signed into law by Zippy for the expressed purpose to use the ´´crisis´´ as a gun to the head of a hostage Congress.

And all the talk about a second recession looming is preposterous, since we haven´t gotten out of the first one.

Of course he´s willing to drive us off the cliff. The only place to get enough money to feed the Democrat vote manufacturing machine is the middle class. He stands a chance to get at that and blame Republicans, sweet. And they have the audacity to mention math? We would need roughly a 50% increase on the 53% of the population that pay federal income tax to curb just the growth in national debt let alone pay down the 16 trillion or address the 86 trillion in unfunded liabilities. Tell me again how we can right the ship without affecting the middle class?

Regardless of how any of us feel about wealth distribution the hard fact is we are committed way above what the wealthy have in totality. As we ask for more and more of the mules pulling the waggons, more and more mules will drop and get loaded in the waggons. So when the waggon slows the answer is to whip the mules doing the pulling?

The liberal Democrats always claim that they are out to tax the rich, but end up taxing the middle class.

The rich are rich because they know how to handle and safeguard their money. In that respect the rich have the wherewithal to use the tremendous number of tax loopholes that are available to them and their accountants to minimize their taxes actually paid as much as is legally possible. The liberal Democrats know that because they actually passed a lot of the tax loopholes that are used by the rich.

The liberal Democrats also know that the middle class is huge compared to the 2% of the population that is actually rich, and that if they really want to raise a lot of revenue, that in the end, they must target the middle class as it is with those people that the greatest potential for raising revenue lays.

Obama probably knows this and will do whatever he can to blame the GOP when the inevitable hits the fan. I think this song was written by that famous duo- Cloward and Piven.

Obozo´s Plan:
1) Allow all tax cuts to expire & blame GOP.
2) Reinstate Some of the cuts, look like a hero while leaving some increased taxes on middle class.
3) Advance his Alynski plan against congress from the mocking stage to the demonization stage.... gaining public support to totally ignore congress.

The regents of the University of Michigan (UM) granted a hefty tuition discount to students who are in the country illegally. The vote to establish in-state tuition rates for illegal immigrants took place on Thursday, following months of discussion over the issue. The two Republican members of the Board of Regents voted against the measure. Under the old tuition policy, illegal immigrants living in the state of Michigan were automatically considered out-of-state students. Now all residents of Michigan, regardless of whether they lawfully entered the U.S., will enjoy in-state tuition rates. The difference between in-state

In January, Rush Limbaugh warned that there was “an effort under way to normalize pedophilia,” and was ridiculed by liberals (including CNN’s Soledad O’Brien) for saying so. But now liberals have joined a crusade that, if successful, would effectively legalize sex with 14-year-olds in Florida. The case involves Kaitlyn Ashley Hunt, an 18-year-old in Sebastian, Florida, who was arrested in February after admitting that she had a lesbian affair with a 14-year high-school freshman.

WASHINGTON — While momentum has been building inside the House Republican conference for a special congressional committee to investigate last year’s terrorist attacks in Benghazi, the GOP leadership is making it clear they still have no enthusiasm for establishing such a committee. About two-thirds of House Republicans – 153 in total – have signed on to the resolution offered by Rep. Frank Wolf of Virginia to establish “a select committee to investigate and report on the attack on the United States consulate in Benghazi, Libya.”“I think there’s a lot of frustration up here among members

The National Treasury Employees Union is denying claims that the union’s president was in contact with President Obama shortly before Internal Revenue Service employees began targeting conservative groups. In a statement emailed to The Daily Caller, the NTEU explained just what NTEU president Colleen Kelley was doing at the White House on March 31, 2010 — shortly before the IRS Determinations Unit began targeting tea party groups. “On March 31, 2010, NTEU president Colleen M.

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'

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.

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

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.

They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The
