President Obama should respond to the Republican stance of “It’s my way or the highway” with his own stance of “It’s my way or the highway.”
The Republicans will sacrifice most anything for a tax break for the millionaires, who comprise a mere 2 percent of the population at most.
Obama should package legislation benefiting the most people, such as the nuclear treaty, extended benefits for the unemployed, help for children, injured 911 workers, don’t ask don’t tell, etc, and trade the entire package for tax breaks for all, including the millionaires. It’s time to play hardball.
Obama has the power. He should use it.
