Barack Obama Refuses to Listen to Former OMB Director Orszag … Obama will Not Extend All Bush Tax Cuts


Less than 60 days from the midterm elections and Obama remains rigid in his economic policies and has caused turmoil among Democrats.

Remember when the LEFT used to say that former President George W. Bush was rigid and unyielding in his ways with regards to the war in Iraq? So what do they say about Barack Hussein Obama who has no clue how to fix the economy and has no intentions of extending all the Bush tax cuts, even though his own former OMB Director Orszag says its the thing to do.

Assuring everyone that they’re unwilling to listen to economic reason, even from the man employed as their budget director a month ago, the White House spokespeople were sent forth this morning to refute the former OMB director’s inaugural New York Times column.

In the column, Orszag called for a two-year extension of the Bush tax cuts, at which point they would end, completely. The message is at odds with the White House’s contention that Congress should raise taxes on higher income brackets, extending only cuts for the middle class. Orszag echoes conservative concerns about Obama’s preference, saying a hike could make an “already stagnating jobs market worse over the next year or two.”

There is a reason why Obama has a 39% approval rating on his handling of the economy, he has earned it.

What does Barack Hussein Obama say about the Bush tax cuts, he is against any compromise. In the wake of a terrible economy, Barack Obama is going to raise taxes on the evil, job creating rich.

Mr. Obama’s opposition to allowing the high-end tax cuts to remain in place for even another year or two would be the signal many Congressional Democrats have been awaiting as they prepare for a showdown with Republicans on the issue and ends speculation that the White House might be open to an extension. Democrats say only the president can rally wavering lawmakers who, amid the party’s weakened poll numbers, feel increasingly vulnerable to Republican attacks if they let the top rates lapse at the end of this year as scheduled.

Remember when this President said he would act as a moderate and reach across the aisle? Remember when Obama said, we are not  “red” states, we are not “blue” states, we are a United States? If all that is true, why is this President for nothing more than CLASS WARFARE?

      Got to keep the hard left all ginned up with the class warfare so they’ll vote in November to keep Nancy and their fellow Commies in charge in Congress.

      the chump obama is extremely jealous of anything that actually works for us. if it’s something he didn’t screw up to begin with, he will screw it up eventually. so little knowledge.

    3. Dolf on September 8th, 2010 10:52 am


      those rich can afford it, they got loaded during the Bush admin.

      How come the average US worker has become more efficient and productive but his pay isn’t that much higher.
      Upper management got richer and richer

      He only wants to take from those that actually WORK for a living and give to those that sit and do nothing but draw welfare, HUD, food stamps and un-employment! Now …. I do believe that some folks actually need help with living but not near the amount that receive help (make them give back to the system) by having to donate 15 -20 hours a week in community service and mandatory drug testing!~

      This is all about crashing the economic system so he can take over and be the dictator.

      O has the opposite of the Midas touches. Everything he touches turns to a stinky brown pile.

    7. Class Warfare Guerilla on September 8th, 2010 3:02 pm

      Articles like this state the half-truth that Obama won’t extend all the Bush tax cuts. The only part of the Bush tax cuts he won’t extend are for the 2% of Americans who make over $250,000 per couple, or $200,000 per individual. I’d say that anyone who is making over $200,000 can afford a 4% tax hike.

      Speaking of class warfare, the side that has been winning that war over the last 20 years has been the rich. That should be painfully obvious given the high rate of unemployment and the millions who have lost their homes to Wall Street charlatans.

      The right acts as if Barack Obama were FDR. If only he were.

    8. jodyo on September 8th, 2010 5:11 pm

      “The right acts as if Barack Obama were FDR. If only he were.”

      No Class Warfare Guerilla, Obama, like you, just wishes he were FDR. So far, he’s done a pretty good job of sending us into a long depression just as FDR did with all the federal spending, behemoth federal gov’t., and new entitlements.

    9. brie. on September 8th, 2010 9:52 pm

      Obama is destructive mind gear…He was a man in an empty suit, now he is completely deflateble…this is not his country, nor or we his people.

      Kill America…is his motto! We need to get rid of that piece of s~~it!!!

    10. billb on September 8th, 2010 11:09 pm

      Bill Clinton was impeached for having sexual relations with an intern…..Can Obama be impeached for screwing America?

    11. D- on September 9th, 2010 2:25 am

      Yes, more tax cuts for the rich! I really don’t understand how Republicans can be fooled year in and year out to vote against their own interests. “Obama is evil because he wants to give tax cuts to people that need it and not to the people that don’t!” “He’s Satan, he wants to help poor people!” “Impeach him!” “Thank God for the Republicans that only care about rich people, let’s elect more of them!”

      You people would be hilarious if I didn’t feel so sorry for you…
      SM: How exactly do you think you help poor people, by hand outs? No, you help them by a hand up. Sorry if you cannot see that.

      You on the LEFT are so insincere. The polls are so against Obama and the Democrats that do you really believe its just the rich who are against him? If only 2% in the US are rich then explain why over 60 want Obamacare repealed and 54% of Americans oppose the job he is doing. Sorry if you can’t handle the truth, even many liberals get it, this President is a screw up.

    12. Scott on September 9th, 2010 8:07 am

      The problem with libtards is that they don’t understand simple economics and that the “rich” as they say are small business owners. If you raise the taxes on those people then you are essentially cutting jobs because those people wouldn’t be able to afford to higher people thus cutting the rate of which the product is produced which in turn raises prices on the consumer. You libtards don’t understand that essentially is a tax on US.

      The reason for the high unemployment isn’t because of Bush, in fact, look at the unemployment rate under Bush and then compare the increase under Obama with his TRILLIONS of bailouts and debt increase. You idiots drank the kool-aide that with the stimulus unemployment wouldn’t go over 8%; well it’s almost 10% now and in many localities the rate is near 20%.

      See libtards, you are the ones being laughed at…

    13. D- on September 9th, 2010 1:01 pm

      Yes, we obviously don’t understand economics. That’s why liberals had 8 years of trickle down economics that did absolutely nothing to help people. It caused the rich to get richer while the economy crashed and people suffered. Oh wait, that wasn’t a liberal in office was it?

      And no, it’s not just 2% against the president. Like I said, Republicans are constantly fooled into voting against their own interests. Happens every single election. You vote against better health care, against tax cuts for the poor and countless other issues that would help you but you’re too busy drinking the Fox “News” Kool-Aid while beating your chests and claiming to be “Real Americans” because you’re helping the rich bend you over.

      And I love how Obama is to blame for unemployment. You do realize the month he got into office we lost 700,000 jobs. Now we’re gaining. Sure we’re not gaining jobs nearly as quickly as anyone would like, but it’s sure as hell better than losing another 700k every month like we would be if Bush or McCain were in office.

    14. super dave on September 9th, 2010 2:22 pm

      #13: it’s evident that you don’t understand anything about anything. i bet you can’t even
      tell us in intelligent english why you’re a

    15. Rusty Bridges on September 9th, 2010 2:27 pm

      #13 The poor don’t pay taxes, get real. That is just one hole in your liberal dream.

      Trickle down didn’t work? How was the economy under the liberl limp wrist carter?

      Just because you didn’t get rich sitting on your duff doesn’t mean it didn’t work.

      Better health care?? Don’t make me laugh.

    16. Scott on September 10th, 2010 6:25 am

      It’s incredible how dumb are the libtards…

      You do realize that the you libtards were in control of Congress the past 6 years? You do realize that libtards such as Chris Dodd and Barney Frank are the real culprits behind the reason the economy started in a tailspin?

      DO YOUR HOMEWORK and stop toting the standard libtard’s cheat sheet.

      You do realize under Clinton; something called the Community Investment Act was threatened and enforced so because they believed “everyone should be able to live the American dream of owning a home?

      We aren’t gaining any jobs. You live in la la land. Go ask all those union people such as construction workers, steel workers, iron workers; truck drivers if they are gaining jobs. You are out of touch my libtard friend.

      Do you call gaining 17,000 jobs; which is trumped up by the government’s mouth good; when just last month that 160K+ jobs were lost.

      Why do the economic experts keep saying that the economy is bleaker and bleaker and they are going to revise their estimate of how slow the GDP is growing?

      Why do you libtards make up crap about unemployment figures and the increase in the debt; which Obama has surpased by himself; more than from Washington to Reagan combined. It’s a FACT that unemployment has grown more under Obama than all most all of Bush’s eight years in office.

    17. Dolf on September 10th, 2010 9:31 am

      ah scott.fuzzy-wuzzy math although it might work is his reality

      and its so productive and mature to insult ppl

    18. super dave on September 10th, 2010 11:49 am

      anyone in their right mind would not even think that the poor pay as much taxes. most poor don’t work, don’t want to work, but a lot of them drive cadillacs and their kids wear $100 jeans and hilfiger shirts to school along with $200 nikes so all that crap is nothing but democrat propaganda just like the race card the democrat so lovingly pull out when they are down in the polls. sorry # 13, but nobody is buying your propaganda today. even your very own democrats are running from obama like scared chickens.

    19. Scott on September 10th, 2010 11:57 am

      Hey Dolf – suck a fat one. You don’t know shiZ about our country and what is going on over here except through MSM liberal television and yes the Clinton News Network (CNN) is one of them.

      It’s amazing your little pip squeak one liners yet you offer nothing to refute what I said NOR do you prove your little girly fuzzy math comment with any intelligent commentary or proof.

      There was just an article the other day that proved what I said about Obama amassing more debt in 2 years than George Washington to Ronald Reagan COMBINED!

      You know jack squat!

      And I don’t really care what you think is or isn’t productive.

      Calling tree hugging, dirty a$$ hippie, only care for themselves suck the off the t*t liberals such as yourself libtards is not insulting anyone. It’s the truth.

      You just an out and out (rhymes with wussy)! Bottom line.

      What kind of country leaves there elderly to die in the streets? Ah your little (rhymes with wussy) country and your hero Joran Van der Sloot!

      Keep your nose out of OUR; the USA’s business, especially when you don’t know your nose from your wittle ***k!

    20. Elmer on September 13th, 2010 8:44 am

      Re #19: It is absolutely incredible that Red can scold and threaten to ban anyone who disagrees with his posts; yet he permits this type of perverted filth by the regulars.
      SM: Hey Elmo, put a sock in it. No one is banned because of a disagreement of a post. People are banned because they are disrespectful and can’t formulate a sentence with out every other word being profanity. Take your post for example. Instead of making a point you bitch & moan and make accusations that are false rather than staying on topic. How typical when you lose the debate on the facts.

      Get on topic or yes your posts will bhe deleted as a waste of bandwidth.

    21. Elmer on September 13th, 2010 9:57 pm

      I posted a comment on this thread this morning that didn’t show up. Just wondering if it was lost or censored…
      SM: Not censored at all as you would have liked to have believed.

    22. Elmer on September 14th, 2010 8:54 am

      Re #20: More threats and intimidation, eh? You’re no better than a schoolyard bully. For the record, I haven’t lost ANY debate on the facts. I agree with about 90% of what you post here. I simply don’t understand why you allow – and I will say it again – the perverted filth that is posted here. Is that an invalid question in your world – unworthy of the miniscule “bandwith” it might take up?

    23. Dolf on September 15th, 2010 7:16 am

      First: biggest news agency is Fox: so Fox is THE mainstream agency

      Secod: The debt Obama has gotten was a left over the financial meltdown

      and you can only refute what makes sense and you scott don’t make sense, you make insults andhatefull and bs posts.

      and nice try with the elderl ppl….you are 1 sad sad angry white male.
      SM: Nice try but wrong Keebler …

      The $787billion now over $1 trillion was from W? The ridiculous cost of Obamacare is from W?

      Please get your head out of your deriere and be honest for once.

    24. Scott on September 15th, 2010 1:35 pm

      #7 – so dumb so dumb…so it was Wall Street’s fault that people lost their homes or is it more likely that ignorant people such as yourself took out mortgages you could not afford?

      It has nothing to do with Wall Street…Typical libtard POV who does not believe in self responsibility and living well WITHIN your means. Always have someone else to blame but themselves, which why our country is tranforming into the Pussification of America. Because little libtard social misfits cry, bitch and moan if someone tells them the sky is actually blue.

      There isn’t one person who makes over $200K that can afford a 4% tax hike on top of all the other tax hikes that are coming in Jan 2011 or are you too dumb to research that on your own. You are blind minion.

      Case in point of the pussification of America is this turd Elmer. Perverted filth? Calling someone a libtard is perverted filth or telling someone to such a fat one is perverted filth? You are nothing more than a bible pumping moron who doesn’t practice what he preaches. Get off your soap box Elmer Fudd.

      Dolt – it’s amazing how incredibly dumb you really are…FOXNEWS is a cable news network. MSNBC is a cable news network. Neither are mainstream putz. Do you even know what mainstream is? It’s not social healthcare.

      More people in this country watch regular television than cable or satellite of which mainstream stations such as CBS, NBC (not MSNBC)ABC are mainstream. You know things like the evening news locally is considered MSM. The Nightly news hosted by people such as Katie Couric are called MSM.

      Cable television and satellite television are NOT mainstream.

      FOXNEWS is also sort of a different corp than just regular FOX.

      Yes FOXNEWS has more ratings than any other CABLE show by almost 3-1 because people want to hear the truth rather than the garble the MSM in cohorts with their cable buddies at MSNBC want you to hear.

      I really can’t believe how literally stupid you are.

    25. Elmer on September 15th, 2010 7:44 pm

      Re #24: Scott, anyone with such rage who peppers almost every post with such obvious homosexual imagery has issues far beyond political extremism.

    26. Dolf on September 16th, 2010 9:37 am

      I did notice that universal healthcare isn’t a US thing……

      But leave scott in charge and within 10 years the US is gone

      You know…he is swearing and shouting…so he must be right…..

    27. Scott on September 16th, 2010 1:46 pm

      I did notice that universal or SOCIAL healthcare has never worked in any country or state that is using it. Ask Massachusettes how that social healthcare thing is going. Ask Canadiens and Brits about coming to the USA for surgeries they were on long years lasting waiting lists in their own country and probably would have died had they not come here. You idiots are the blind leading the blind…right off a cliff.

      Yep. dolf because you know so much about our country from watching television you dolt.

      Elmer…it’s funny how you losers can tell that someone has “rage” from a blog post or email. Take off your pocket protector and your 5 inch thick glasses and take a look in the mirror. Get a life.

      I have zero rage. Zero. It’s just that libtard losers such as yourself who drink too much kool-aid don’t know what to do with yourselves when they are faced with fact, logic and common sense.

      Really? homosexual imagery? Imagine coming from you that you would come away from my alleged rage posts as having homosexual imagery or is it the fact that you are a fudge packer yourself.

      Suck a fat one is homosexual imagery? Really? Where in #24 is homosexual imagery? Where in #19 is there homosexual imagery? A word that rhymes with wussy but starts with a “p” is homosexual? Hmmmm….I’m starting to see a trend here from you; you are one that needs to come out of the closet as your head is obviously filled with homosexual thoughts.

    28. Scott on September 16th, 2010 1:55 pm

      Elmer I really wish you wouldn’t make false allegations of my supposed “homosexual imagery” in my “every” one of my posts.

      All posts on this thread have not had one ounce of homosexual imagery at all…not ONE unless your bible pumping self considers “suck a fat one” or not knowing your nose from your ****” that kind of imagery; of which of course it’s not. I didn’t know saying sucking off the t*t of the government is considered that kind of imagery too.

      Nice try there. Isn’t it time for your Geriatrics Bible class?
