Sacrifice: Obama May Delay Hawaii Vacation To Push Tax Hikes

In January 2009, before he signed his failed $787 billion stimulus bill into law, Barack Obama lectured America saying,
“Everyone must sacrifice for the greater good… Everyone must have some skin in the game.”

Now after blowing $10 million on drunken White House parties and taking his family on vacation after vacation, including an exotic getaway to southern Spain, the the president is ready to sacrifice.

President Obama may delay his vacation in order to reach a deal on the Bush tax cuts. Obama wants to raise taxes on business owners.
CNN reported:


President Barack Obama is considering at least a short delay to the start of his holiday vacation in Hawaii so he can try to work out a deal with congressional Republicans on the Bush tax cuts that expire December 31, CNN has learned.

Two senior administration officials tell CNN the White House has been getting signals that the lame duck session of Congress could drag on past December 18, when the president is scheduled to depart for Hawaii.

Obama has privately said he is willing to stay in Washington until Christmas Eve if necessary to finish the contentious debate over taxes, the officials said.

Of course, if Obama would just agree to not raise taxes he could be on a plane to Hawaii tomorrow.
