Already Saw This Movie

There you go again

This time the President says he is against renewing the Bush tax cuts for those making more than $250,000.  Right.

Obama campaigned on that platform in 2008.  In 2009 and 2010, when he had the votes in Congress to implement such a policy, he did nothing.  In late 2010 he agreed to a compromise that extended all of the Bush tax cuts for two more years.  Now he expects us to believe that he will not accept any more extensions of the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy.  Right.

If Obama is re-elected he will face a House that is even more Republican and more radical than the House today.  That body will not pass a law that extends the Bush tax cuts for anyone unless it extends them for all.  Obama’s choice will be to veto all the extensions, or to allow what is likely to be permanent extension for all the cuts.  Gosh, anyone know which way he will go?
