President Barack Obama makes remarks on the “fiscal cliff” in the East Room of the White House. (The Ticket)

Citing a mandate, far left President Obama told reporters today that America voted for tax hikes this week.
The Ticket reported:

Claiming a mandate from his election romp over Mitt Romney, President Barack Obama announced on Friday that he had invited congressional leaders to the White House next week for talks on how to steer the battered economy away from a “fiscal cliff.” Obama said he was open to compromise with Republicans—but that any final deal needed to raise taxes on the richest Americans.

“This was a central question during the election,” the president said in brief remarks in the East Room of the White House. “It was debated over and over again, and on Tuesday night we found out that a majority of Americans agree with my approach.

“Our job now is to get a majority in Congress to reflect the will of the American people,”
Obama said. “I’m not wedded to every detail of my plan. I’m open to compromise. I’m open to new ideas. I’m committed to solving our fiscal challenges. But I refuse to accept any approach that isn’t balanced.

So, any guess on the timing of our next recession?

    Strange how the looming fiscal cliff crisis could be said to be so central to the election when the American Pravda propaganda complex worked so very hard to ignore it, along with a host of other dire events that will surface.

    During the campaign he said he would only “ask” the wealthy to pay more taxes. You don’t *have* to say yes, right???

    Btw just find the right government guy to bribe or offer some bribe to some official somewhere who can probably take care of it for you if you “forget” to pay your taxes. That’s how it works most other places in the world. Didn’t most americans vote for that???

  • driguana

    Does “richest americans” include Hollywood people?

  • Tjexcite

    Well then give it to them and stock up on food, toilet paper and ammo.

    Every so often people to be burned to know that fire will burn. Same with Communism. People are two generations away from it so now it is time to remind people of it. Even if it causes death and destruction on the way. If the Constitution really is that strong it will be around on the there side.

    51% of ALL US citizens over 18 years old voted.
    Obama got the votes of only 26% of all eligable voters in the US.

    He LIES again whan he speaks about most wanting tax hikes. ONLY 26% of the eligable voters say that.

    US pop over 18 years old is 234,564,000
    Obama got 61,210,389 votes

    I love how liberals wear blinders when viewing something. Every single seat in the House of Representatives was up for reelction, and the people voted in a Republican majority to keep Obama from raising our taxes. That’s the way any rational person would view it.

    When you don’t vote, you are settling for the status quo. If you don’t vote out the incumbent by not voting or by voting for the incumbent, you are agreeing to the status quo.

    That means the majority is just fine paying more money to Obama.

    The easiest way for the people to resolve this issue was to vote out the one person that all voters had a say in, the President. They did not. They kept him, KNOWING that he intended to raise taxes on the highest earners. You reality deniers lost, now get out of the way.

    …any final deal needed to raise taxes on the richest Americans.

    Now what was that again about eight out of the ten wealthiest counties in the U.S. going for Obie?

    Bwaaahahahahaha, eat it, you idiots.

  • bigkahuna

    1. Seems to me they voted for gridlock

    2. Liberals voted for tax rate hikes ????? Ok check the voter roles and those who voted for Obama will get increased taxes.

    3. F.O. B.O.

    OT: Petraeus resigns this a.m. just announces he will NOT be testifying on Benghazi.

    nothing to see here folks, move along

  • Sam Stone

    Cargosquid. I disagree. The majority who didn’t vote are probably better off not voting or Obama would have gotten 10 million more votes. Then he may have been right.

    apathy is not a vote for or against.

  • Dale

    LOL! Four more years muthafakaz! Democrats gained seats in the Senate and the House! GOP will soon be “so small we can drown it in the bathtub.”

    62 million Republicans voted for Bush. 50 million for Romney. We’re missing 12 million Republicans.

    I don’t care if 10 million Democrats stay home. We had 12 million deserters.

    New Interior proposal would block oil shale drilling on federal lands in West.
    The Interior Department on Friday issued a final plan to close 1.6 million acres of federal land in the West originally slated for oil shale development.

    The proposed plan would fence off a majority of the initial blueprint laid out in the final days of the George W. Bush administration. It faces a 30-day protest period and a 60-day process to ensure it is consistent with local and state policies. After that, the department would render a decision for implementation.

    Its a scary place to live where about 51% of your neighbors can vote your income away from you to be spent on them.

  • Lily

    but that any final deal needed to raise taxes on the richest Americans.

    Duel income professions working in a large city making a combined $250,000+ are apparently millionaires and billionaires.

  • Fionnagh

    Man, I SO hope this gets on the lamestream media – more than once – so that the fools who voted this guy in can sit back in shock and say Whoa, dude! That’s not why I voted for you! Whaddha mean, higher taxes?

  • AmericaWILL

    When the Hell was it debated????? Must of been in the first one and inside $hit-4-brains’s head.
