Stop an Obama "Grand Bargain" [read "Grand Sellout"]

At President Obama's first post-election press conference he stressed his eagerness to work with Republicans.

Without being asked about Medicare or Social Security, he urged "deficit reduction that includes entitlement changes."

Reporters didn't ask about the option of cutting military spending, and the President never brought it up.

Does this sound like ingredients of a Grand Bargain you'd like to see?

Tell the President and Congress to expand Medicare and Social Security, to invest in green energy, to raise taxes on the rich and corporations, and to cut military spending back to the level of 12 years ago.

Please forward this email widely to like-minded friends.

  1. Tax Rates vs Tax Revenue

    The election turned on Willard Romney and Paul Ryan when they refused to offer details on their tax plan. Lower tax RATES and raise REVENUE by eliminating deductions and loopholes. No details were given and the math didn't add up.

    Now both President Obama and republicans are speaking the same language. Both are talking about REVENUE. Now even notorious neo-con Bill Kristol is on Faux news telling the viewers to TAKE THE DEAL.

    This is a Grand Betrayal and Grand Larceny, but it's NO BARGAIN.
