Obama: ‘We need more revenue’

Posted by Felicia Sonmez on January 14, 2013 at 11:48 am

 

President Obama kicked off the final news conference of his first term by renewing his call for Congress to approve a “balanced” deficit-reduction package that includes both spending cuts and new revenues.

Republican leaders have said repeatedly that the Jan. 1 fiscal cliff agreement ended any discussion of raising new revenue and that in upcoming negotiations they would deal only in spending cuts. Obama made clear that he does not agree

 

He reiterated that he is “open to making modest adjustments to programs like Medicare.” 

“The fact is, though, we can’t finish the job of deficit reduction through spending cuts alone,” Obama added. “We need more revenue.” 

“We’ve made progress,” he said. “We are moving toward our ultimate goal of getting to a $4 trillion reduction. And there will be more deficit reduction when Congress decides what to do about the $1.2 trillion in automatic spending cuts that have been pushed off until next month.”

He objected to the characterization of a debt ceiling increase as analogous to more government spending. House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has demanded a dollar in spending cuts for every dollar the debt ceiling is raised.

“The debt ceiling is not a question of authorizing more spending,” Obama said. “Raising the debt ceiling does not authorize more spending. it simply allows the country to pay for spending that Congress has already agreed to.” 

 

 

 

:lmao:

 

 

So, these rent seekers JUST got done raising taxes on all federal tax payers (the payroll tax holday expiration and the 400K plus crowd increases...), and managed to skirt a single cut to the leviathan

that is our federal government, and he's already back at the podium with his pockets turned inside out talking about more revenue.

 

 

:lmao:

Yeah, I totally should. The government city/state/federal, was nice enough to let me keep half of 'my' bonus. And the additional. 1,200 a year in SS taxes that I'm paying now too. They need more of fruits of my labor though.

 

Definitely.

 

You too, Jack. Lord knows that if you give them some more, they will spend it wisely and never ask again. :lmao:

Why do you two have such hate for Obama?

 

And mock him anytime he opens his mouth?

 

I mean every president falls into the same hypocrisies punch bowl, but lets mock Obama with the Yes we can, nonsense.

 

PS.  Yes we can, is so 2008, it is now 2012,

And we only have one president at a time. Currently that one is Obama. When his term is up, it will be a new Morans turn to be the whipping boy for saying dumb shit and being a shit stain.

Obviously, but it is a constant bash fest here about Obama.

 

Just like how "you survived Bush, you will survive Obama".

 

I somehow think you will be one of those Morans (no offense) mocking the new president, even though you did not vote again.

I did watch him avoid directly answering some of the questions he was asked after his speech.

 

Which is why I stated he was dancing

The guy is a liar who also assassinates American citizens. He should be called out when he does wrong, I can't see letting him slide just because of his political party being anything less than condoning his actions.

I answered the question. He's the president. We only have one at a time. Nobody was calling YOU out, dude. If you have some type of affliction over your vote choice, it isn't due to me mocking the presidents dumb fuckery or his slogan. It's your thing, man. Not mine.

 

I never said anything about anyone's personal choice to vote for Obama. That is what YOU brought to the thread. His slogan was "yes we can" and in so, it gets a good solid mocking.
