Anyone stupid enough to think Obama cares about his ‘legacy’ and think he will become a moderate, instead of a far left ideologue is kidding themselves. Obama wants tax hikes, and wouldn’t budge on them this time since he wouldn’t face election again. In his first post-election speech, he again demanded raising taxes like a typical Marxist Democrat. I’ve come to this conclusion since the election. Americans were stupid enough to re-elect this clown, and even add Democrats to the Senate. Lets give them what they want. Let the Bush tax cuts expire, let sequestration happen, and let the Marxist Democrats and stupid people who voted for them own it.
The lines are now set for the battle over the fiscal cliff. The fiscal cliff, which is a combination of expiring lower tax rates and automatic cuts to government spending, largely focused on the military, is set to cripple our economy come January 2013.
Already, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has said he will not stand for tax hikes. So has House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH). If we are to avoid the fiscal cliff – which was designed by Obama to hurt defense spending as a leverage to force Republicans to raise taxes – Obama will have to agree not to raise taxes.
