(WSJ) 'No I won't back down' - Barack Obama

Obama Stands by Tax Demand
President Barack Obama said Tuesday that a deal still can get done to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff, but he held firm on his demand that any agreement must include higher income-tax rates for the top earners.

In his first interview since the Nov. 6 election, the president told Bloomberg Television that the proposal offered by House Republicans, which doesn't raise tax rates on upper-income Americans, is out of balance.

"When you look at the math, it doesn't work," Mr. Obama said...

"What I'm going to need...is an acknowledgment that folks like me can pay a little bit higher rate," he said

2. Good! About time!

Pres. Obama has compromised more than enough with Republicans during his first term in office. He has just been re-elected, and HE, not the whiney tea-baggers, are in charge.
