To preserve the Bush tax cuts for just 2 Per Cent of Americans, The Party of NO is willing to send the rest of us into a renewed recession! That is the bald fact. Nobel prize winning economist Paul Krugman puts it this way in his column:
Republicans are trying, for the third time since [President Obama] took office, to use economic blackmail to achieve a goal they lack the votes to achieve through the normal legislative process. In particular, they want to extend the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy, even though the nation can’t afford to make those tax cuts permanent and the public believes that taxes on the rich should go up — and they’re threatening to block any deal on anything else unless they get their way. So they are, in effect, threatening to tank the economy unless their demands are met.
President Obama wants YOU to keep your Bush era tax cut. (Unless you're one of the greedy rich ... then he wants you to pay your way for a change.)
No matter which party you support, you should let your congressional representative know that you want Boehner to get out of the way and preserve these tax cuts.
