it looks like BO is going to go back on another campaign promise which will give relief to some and make others rather pissed off. It's going to be interesting what will be said by the people looking for their redistribution checks.

WASHINGTON — President-elect Barack Obama may consider delaying a campaign promise - to roll back tax cuts on high-income Americans - as part of his economic recovery strategy, two aides said on Sunday.
David Axelrod, the Obama campaign strategist who was chosen to be a senior White House adviser, was asked if the tax cuts could be allowed to expire on schedule after tax year 2010 rather than being rolled back by legislation earlier. "Those considerations will be made," he said on "Fox News Sunday."
Bill Daley, an adviser to Obama and commerce secretary under former President Bill Clinton, said on NBC's "Meet the Press" that the 2010 scenario "looks more likely than not."
President George W. Bush's tax cuts are set to expire at the end of 2010. After that they would revert to 2001 levels, when the top individual tax rate was 39.6 percent.
Obama has called for reducing taxes for the middle class, but requiring the wealthiest Americans to pay more than the current top rate of 35 percent.
His aides' comments suggest Obama may be wary of imposing any additional tax burden at a time of deep crisis, despite the outlook for record budget deficits and mounting national debt. He may also be seeking to bolster Republican support for his recovery measures.
"The main thing right now is to get this economic recovery package on the road, to get money in the pockets of the middle class, to get these projects going, to get America working again, and that's where we're going to be focused in January," Axelrod said.
Obama said on Saturday he was crafting an aggressive two-year stimulus plan to revive the economy, aiming to save 2.5 million jobs by January 2011 through projects including transportation infrastructure, school modernization and alternative energy.
Obama called in October for a $175 billion stimulus measure, but he suggested he was ready to push for a much larger package.
U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer, a New York Democrat who is part of the majority leadership team in the Senate, told ABC's "This Week" that an economic recovery package between $500 billion and $700 billion is needed and could be ready by the time Obama takes office on January 20.
"I think it has to be deep. In my view it has to be between five and seven hundred billion dollars," Schumer said.

yep, that's additional. I wonder where he thinks that money will come from?

I also find it interesting how it started off as creating 2.5 mil new jobs and now it's new jobs and retaining jobs. Hell, just saving 2.5 million jobs might be considered a good thing.

Many of the people that elected Obama are dip sh*ts and they probably won't notice as he does not change anything....these are the same people that think Republicans control congress. The good Dems that have a head on their shoulders will be pissed but they will continue to vote Dem anyway...

Typical politician....they all suck Reps included

I was going to have to die in 2011 to beat out the sunsetting of the tax breaks. But now with the economy in the dumper I think I'll just stick it out for one more year when I'll be completely destitute. Won't be any capital gain left to pay...

what I'm finding very interesting about all this is where is all this change he spoke so much of? As of right now, he has a cabinet full of Clintonites and even a Clinton and now it looks like he's going to stick with the Bush Tax Plan for awhile.

I guess the change is he's admitting, in a round about way, that he has no real plans or intelligence of his own. I have to give him credit for that admission even if it is in an obscure way.

I still think that he is doing what he has to, to get things on the road to recovery. Some may not like it, but in the end things will be better for me, I mean most. ;)

He won't do anything for you except make you feel better...It is unfortunate that you lack that understanding....this is the fallacy of good gov't intentions.

you still "think"? LMAO at least Carter and Clinton had their own minds on what to do. They also, on the most part, picked their own cabinet members and not relying on pawns from a previous administration.
They also instituted their own plans instead of keeping the previous Presidents policies in place. A President of a Political Party that 1/2 the people in the country wanted out because they didn't like his policies.
Guess what, it looks like your pres is keeping some of those same policies :D

did you feel you're getting the change you were hoping for? hahahahahaha :D

go read the article so you can educate yourself. Your prez is probably going to keep the Bush plan in place for a couple more years.....you're distribution money won't be coming for awhile. In the least, he won't be putting his into place cuz he's decided the timing isn't right. :D :D :D :D :D
