It’s being said that the reason the “majority” re-elected, President Obama is because of his promise to avoid a “fiscal cliff” and to raise the taxes for higher earners, a promise that he plans to keep. The tax raise, which plans to set in effect on Jan. 1 is because of the expiration of the Bush tax rates. President Obama didn’t out-right mention the the Bush tax rates, however he did state, “I refuse to accept any approach that isn’t balanced.” He then adds, “Our job now is to get a majority in Congress to reflect the will of the American people.” Check down bottom for more.
