The minute Big Business stops getting Big Subsidies and Big Tax Breaks, they can feel free to biatch to me about Big Labor. Until then, shut up.

Tax cuts for billionaires isn't class warfare, but maintaining the social safety net and encouraging spending in your consumer base with liveable wage is "ZOMG PAYOFF TO BIG LABOR!!111!!111!"

un4gvn666: dwrash: And the republicans retained control over the house (which holds the purse strings).

0/10. This was supposed to be the Republican year, you chucklefark.



Dont care.. I voted libertarian (again).

If the people wanted the tax the rich.. than they were stupid and voted for the wrong people in the house.

In other words, prices are about to go up in a big way. Thank a union member - with a crowbar.

Well, that was convincing. Fark the seniors.


I would rather keep the money out of my paycheck.

How much do you think you should pay?

dwrash: Arkanaut: Topping labor's wish list - for now - is a push to raise taxes on wealthy Americans and discouraging Obama from agreeing to any deal with Republicans over the looming "fiscal cliff" that cuts into Social Security and Medicare.

Those are things that help all Americans.

Immigration reform - and a path to citizenship for 11 million undocumented Latino immigrants - would create a vast new pool of potential union members.

It could also create a vast new pool of strikebreakers. But it could be better for America overall for various reasons.

//my $.02

The problem with this is that the democrats are basically admitting they lied to get the debt ceiling raised... and the Republicans will take full advantage of this. The Democrats promised to cut spending as part of the deal.. and part of that deal was not to raise taxes.

Whether its good or not is immaterial.. the democrats agreed to the deal.


WTF are you talking about? The debt limit was raised when an agreement was made. That agreement was that there would be massive cuts in spending and tax increases that start on January 1, 2013 unless another deal is negotiated before then. At no time did Obama, or any Democrats in congress that I'm aware of, promise that a compromise to avoid the "fiscal cliff" would exclude raising taxes.

Immigration is a different kettle of fish... how can we abide by the rule of law and admit at the same time that we farked up as a nation and basically caused this issue ourselves?
