I’m still completely gobsmacked by CNN’s decision to air a ‘Tea Party’ sponsored Republican debate, one that allowed those racist bigots set the agenda for the night. What can we expect next? A Louis Farrakhan-sponsored CNN Democratic debate? Of course not, that would be completely unacceptable!

The President is visiting a high school in Columbus, Ohio tomorrow (Tuesday) to promote the American Jobs Act.

See you then.

Please, no more posting anti-President Obama smears and bile from moronic rags that make the National Enquirer seem credible.

Sorry, but that crap just isn’t welcome here and will be deleted as soon as it appears.

Thank you Me4Obama

Could any one tell me why CNN is hosting a ‘Tea Party’ debate, thereby attempting to give some respectability to an organization made up of racists, bigots and all-round nutjobs? What next? The KKK-sponsored debate?

‘heartening’

David Nakamura (Washington Post): President Obama would fund his $447 billion plan to create jobs largely by raising taxes on wealthier families, White House aides said Monday after the president again called on Congress to support the package.

… Aides revealed for the first time that the plan will include limits on itemized deductions for individuals who earn more than $200,000 a year and families that earn more than $250,000.

Eliminating those deductions will bring in an additional $400 billion in revenue, said Jack Lew, director of the Office of Management and Budget.

The administration also is recommending closing oil and gas loopholes and changing the depreciation rules for corporate airplanes. All of the new rules, which would take effect in 2013, would bring in an estimated total of $467 billion, more than enough to pay for the president’s jobs bill, Lew said during the White House’s daily press briefing Monday.

Obama has proposed similar tax hikes on the wealthy in the past, but they were rejected by Congress.

…. The President is scheduled to visit a high school in Columbus, Ohio, on Tuesday and to travel to the Raleigh-Durham area of North Carolina on Friday to tout the plan.

Steve Benen: …. the Obama administration’s approach to financing is heartening – there’s been all kinds of scuttlebutt about the White House proposing regressive policies to pay for the jobs bill, and the rumors were wrong. The president and his team are pushing the better – and incidentally, more popular – financing option.

And the more the GOP opposes this approach, the more Obama will pose the options the way he did on Thursday night:

“Should we keep tax loopholes for oil companies? Or should we use that money to give small business owners a tax credit when they hire new workers? Because we can’t afford to do both.

Should we keep tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires? Or should we put teachers back to work so our kids can graduate ready for college and good jobs? Right now, we can’t afford to do both.

….These are real choices that we’ve got to make. And I’m pretty sure I know what most Americans would choose. It’s not even close. And it’s time for us to do what’s right for our future.”
