Barack Obama … Man of the People, NOT!!!
Talk about a man of the people, President Barack Obama may delay his Hawaiian vacation over the Bush tax cut battle. In a word, what SACRIFICE! Are you serious? While all Americans and business owners have no idea what the tax rates will be beginning 2011, Obama is just considering not delaying a vacation. Most Americans cannot even afford to travel these days, that is if they are lucky enough to still have a job and a home under the Obama White House.
Just a reminder to WE THE PEOPLE, Obama had no problem staying in Washington, DC last year to pass Obamacare.
President Barack Obama is considering at least a short delay to the start of his holiday vacation in Hawaii so he can try to work out a deal with congressional Republicans on the Bush tax cuts that expire December 31, CNN has learned.
Two senior administration officials tell CNN the White House has been getting signals that the lame duck session of Congress could drag on past December 18, when the president is scheduled to depart for Hawaii.
Obama has privately said he is willing to stay in Washington until Christmas Eve if necessary to finish the contentious debate over taxes, the officials said.
While administration officials do not expect that Obama will have to stay in town until Christmas Eve, which he did last year because of health care reform, they believe there could be a delay of at least a couple of days.
Everyone has pretty much figured out where Obama’s priorities are and they are not with jobs, the economy or the people. Far be it from the “little people’s” tax future get in the way of Obama’s golf game.
