The White House is requesting a (get this) $1.6 Trillion tax hike. AND, to boot, they want $50 billion in stimulus spending.
In summary, the democrats are shitting on the faces of republicans. They want to raise taxes and spend EVEN MOAR. There is NO FUCKING WAY this deal gets done. Zero percent chance, unless of course the GOP sells out.
The deal is dead.
UPDATE: Republicans have called the President’s offer as a “complete break with reality.”
UPDATE II: The fuckheads in govt put out some data, suggesting that by extending long term unemployment benefits the economy will produce an additional 300k jobs next year through spending. In summary, they want to create new jobs by paying some fucktard at home, who will go out and spend $60 at GME for a new video game, so that he can waste away at home–living for free. WTF?
