some deal to save tax hikes looks like the working man's taxes is going up anyway. I thought this fiscal cliff deal was to keep taxes from going up on everybody except those making over 500,000.
Looks like Obama got everything he wanted. Raise taxes on most people AND instead of spending cuts he is increasing spending by 303 billion.

He can now come out and say that the repubs raised taxes his original plan was to lower taxes and they will get the blame for this.
Just watch it will be Republicans fault for the tax increase and the media will also push it. This was designed to kill republicans in 2 years. This will be normal business practice from now on. The Republicans should have stood their ground.
