As part of Obama's efforts to pass the tax breaks, he told Democrats that if this bill doesn't pass, he could lose being Presdient, or in other words, he won't be re-elected in 2012. That is the first reason I have heard to not pass the tax breaks :)
Obama used this tactic before with the Health Care bill. At some point, this becomes the boy who cried wolf. In one way, he is loosing his presidency because of the health care passage. So how are representatives supposed to react to this pseudo-threat?
Is the tax thing a deal breaker for Obama 2012? Or is this a deal breaker for the democrats supporting Obama in 2012?
