White House admits even Democrat controlled Senate would not pass President's proposal
Obama is over reaching. He has been offered 100% of the revenue increase he campaigned on but whines about it not targeting the income the bourgeoisie enough to suit his Marxist tastes even though that "wealthy" class would end up paying most of the increase anyway.
Boehner got flak from his own party because he offered Obama everything he wanted from the target taxpayer just in a different form. Obama is such an ego head he sees any effort to compromise as weakness.
