President Barack Obama can pat himself on the back; he has extended the G.W. Bush tax cuts for 98 percent of Americans.

It’s funny that he never mentioned those are Bush tax cuts.

Of course taxes will rise, and he and the Democrats didn’t cut spending at all. America’s federal debt limit has hit its max of $16 trillion and now they need another raise on the debt limit. Maybe another two or three trillion.

Don’t worry, though. President Obama won’t cut spending, and Republicans are so afraid of the liberal media they won’t demand he make real spending cuts, either. So the debt goes on and on and on.
