Obama gets angry
I wanted to write about today’s events in Norway, but the President’s press conference was just too compelling. He is finally showing passion, anger and energy. And it looks like Congress has fallen apart on him.
“I couldn’t get a phone call back from Boehner.”
“Reagan raised the debt ceiling 16 times and no one questioned him. He said ‘the country simply cannot default.’ I agree with that.”
He made it clear, once and for all, that individuals with corporate jets need to pay taxes on those jets. Plain and simple. We need to raise revenues, not just cut spending. That’s what this boils down to. Forget talk of cutting Medicare and Social Security.
We need to raise the debt ceiling, as Obama said, that’s not negotiable.
But we need to raise revenues.
