3. Republicans will never agree with the president
The only way to do it is to let "ALL" the Bush tax cuts expire, and then next year go in and push a bill to give those that make under $250,000 the tax breaks again. Keep on putting out a bill to do this till the republicans pass it. The majority of americans want the tax breaks for the rich to end, and if republicans fight this it will be their problem in 2014. We can't back down, and I don't think the president will, I just hope the democrats in congress stand firm on this also!
One way or another the Bush tax cuts for the rich have to go! If republicans in the house won't vote for it, then let them pay the price in 2014.
