16. Substantive Agreement?
With Obama, that means taxes will be returned to pre-Bush levels for lower and middle income earners and they will remain lowered for earners above $250,000.

17. Fuck this bullshit. I'm sick and tired of listening to their half-assed
warmed over 'explanations' of why the piss running down our legs is really rain. Their disdain for the base is palpable.

21. The sunset was created by the GOP. Now they want more tax cuts.
Tax cuts for 95% of the people IS compromise. If they want tax cuts for all, we should say we will give you MOST of what you want, deal with it.

23. What he means is that the suckers in the US who DO pay taxes are going to pay more
And it will continue to line the pockets of the wealthy bigots who could give a fucking rat's ass about this country.
