    Theo the president is like a conman, only concerned about being re elected.
    You just have to have a higher I.Q. than most people to see it.
    The only thing he knows how to do is spend taxpayer money to get himself re elected. Sadly he's about to discover, if he hasn't already, he's not in Chicago.
    The extremely wealthy people know a big mistake has been made. They will unite to undo it.
    I have confidence in them. I have spoken and laughed with many of them.

      Jim The wealthy are not the majority, they are the minority. Working people love to sit around and talk about the wealthy. too. The wealthy are only interested in more wealth, that is why they vote republican.
      you don't have the numbers to vote out the President of the working people. You have laughed but will it be the laugh?
      The american workers are getting wise to the laughing wealthy. Sounds as if you are not wealthy and not intelligent enough to know that they laugh at you laughing at yourself.
      It is really funny to me that now that the Democrats are in to sweep up the Repugs mess they demand a fast fix after 8 years of neglect. [6 years with a house and senate of republicans.] The working people will speak again. If you don't think this is a class battle just read the above spew.

    Just another purely political play. Stimulus Junior! The business man doesn't need loans; he needs to know just how deep he's going to buried under the cost of Obamacare, Cap and Tax, the repeal of the Bush tax cuts, new fees and regulations. The unknown is the jobs killer, not the lack of loans. This anti-business president doesn't understand that.

      Ancient, blah blah, talk big but not an ounce of anything to back it up. I believe it is to give working people a chance and make it so the wealthy cannot hide behind all kinds of shifty tax breaks, so you maybe only 1/2 right. I think you unknown is unknown to anyone, just something made up to scare people or you would disclose it. No hes not anti-business, just anti-it -doesnt apply to weathy. If want to do something big texan have facts not fodder.

    I am getting sick of all this bickerring; its not law until the President signs the damn thing. The Senate has really good chance of killing it like everything else.

    Scottish Mama- I am a small business man, I have a little knowledge about the subject. O.K. have it your way-we'll see if there is a sudden burst of hiring because of loan availability. The tax burden about to be levied on everybody that pays taxes at all will stifle expansion and hiring at most small businesses.

    Ancient, do try to read more than a Murdoch headline. If Bush's massive giveaway to the wealthy is continued, the price of every federal, state, and local service will rise. Some places have been shutting off streetlights, others have explored selling off roads and bridges. Do you believe inserting a profit-greedy middleman makes anything cheaper or safer? The free market regulates by death. Here, have a lovely uninspected omelet. Bush's gift to the rich meant gutting agencies of inspectors and all that annoying safety enforcement. Hope no one you love died from the spinach or the cadmium jewelry or the tainted milk products.

    If the tax cuts expire, it will be the biggest tax hike in history. If middle class cuts expire and you and your spouse make as much as $65,000 jointly your tax load will increase over $1500. Couple making $80,000 will see a $2200 increase. aquart....You're correct all taxes; state and local are going up. That factors into a small business ability to hire also. Oh, BTW I read EVERYTHING. not just Fox. But if I want unbiased NEWS (not comment) I watch Fox.
