President Obama has the upper hand USE IT! Lalo Cartoon

Lalo fiscal cliff

Here is the deal. Raise taxes on those who make more than $150,000 to 39%. Increase capital gains by 10%, add a 30% minimum tax on those making over a million a year. Deficit gone in one year, debt gone in 5 years.

  • I see that Boehner is still refusing to budge on the original deal which is so minute that they wouldn’t feel it. Obama needs to take a cue from parents everywhere…”I’ll GIVE you something to cry about!” ; ) This is usually done while the child circles at arm’s length, but after 4 years of playing nicely, I think the President can find some method to impress them so they can go home for the holidays.
