Last year, Obama's budget failed 97 to 0 in his own Democrat Senate. This year, Reid isn't even going to bring up Obama's budget for a vote. Obama's budget just more firmly puts the country on a path to a Greece style bankruptcy.
Obama's budget actually reduces the deficit over the next 4 years. It's just that a tax hike on already super rich (who've seen their incomes skyrocket while the rest of us stay stagnet) will never pass with Republican obstruction.
We've got the tea baggers who hate Obama because he wants to raise the capital gains tax from 15% to 20%. In the next sentence, the tea baggers say things like "Where's Reagan when we need him". Yet Reagan raised capital gains from 20% to 28% in 1986.
The tea baggers are the ones responsible for our continued deficits.
Yes, but the fact that there may be an equal credit for NGV cars makes me wonder if Obama might actually make a push for NGV's. I've been thinking he was just giving lip service at the State of the Union for votes from states benefiting from nat gas. And if he gets elected again, he can forget all about it and go back to concentrating on batteries and solar panels.
