$800 Billion in New Revenue

In case you aren’t following the debt ceiling talks, take note of something that the mainstream press does not want you to know (and some extremists object to greatly):  House Speaker John Boehner offered the President and Democrats $800 billion in new revenue over the next decade.

What does the President say now?  He can’t say the Republicans “just say no” on revenue increases.  The press can’t (in good conscience, should they actually have one) say that Republicans have been obstinate.  $800 billion in new revenues.

The President’s response?  “We want $400 billion more”.

I don’t know what game the President is playing, but it is a dangerous one for us as a nation.  It may be good for him politically, but it sure is bad for us and the world.  Let’s hope he doesn’t get away with it.
