It’s bad enough that the President stormed out of a meeting last week because he wasn’t getting his way. Now, Mr. “Leave your ultimatums at the door” Obama, is throwing a hissy fit because the GOP won’t give him the taxes hikes he wants. It’s like he’s saying, “I’m going to VETO this bill that cuts spending if it doesn’t include BIG TAX HIKES… you evil GOP. Don’t you realize I need YOU to hike taxes so I can blame it on YOU, the GOP, so I can get reelected.”
“Everybody’s going to have to give. Everybody’s going to have to have some skin in the game.” – President Obama, January 2009
In addition to threatening to veto the Cut, Cap and Balance bill H.R. 2560, the White House is threatening to veto H.R. 2434, the 2012 Financial Services and General Government Appropriations Act. Among other things, the White House is arguing against a proposed $65 million budget cut to the Executive Office.
