Biden is a loose cannon.

He's a more intelligent version of Dan Quayle.

But his heart is in the right place.

And if he was President, I'd bet we'd hear even more bellyaching about Socialism from those on the Right.  But at least he's the "right" race Evil

He's also a lot less evil than Dan Quayle.

Why do you play the race card so much?  Even in jest , i think you actually are serious.  You must have some liberal guilt hiding inside somewhere.   Don't know   Cain is rising.  neck and neck with Obama in FL.

here is the big fallacy

Republicans in the House and Senate demand  that the President release a detailed plan, knowing that the President has no authority to introduce legislation in the House or the Senate

The House, led by the GOP, refuse to bring up the proposed bill as detailed by the President

The Senate, led by the Dems, but dominated by an almost solid GOP minority block of over 40 b/c of the filibuster the GOP knows that the President's bill as proposal won't be approved b/c there are things in it that certain Dem Senators don't like

the President's bill is a compromise after all.

and now the Senate Dems are changing the President's proposal:

First on CNN: Democrats will seek smaller 'millionaire's tax'


Posted by
By CNN's Ted Barrett and Kate Bolduan

Washington (CNN) - Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will announce Monday that Democrats will seek a .5% (point five percent) surtax on annual incomes over $1 million to pay for the first individual component of President Obama's broader jobs package, which was rejected in the Senate last week, a Senate Democratic leadership aide told CNN.
 
That component of the larger jobs bill would provide $35 billion in aid to states to help preserve jobs for teachers and first responders, the White House and Senate Majority Leaders Harry Reid's office said.
 
The administration and congressional Democrats hope the slimmed-down bill – aimed at helping teachers and firefighters – will be difficult for Republicans to oppose, especially as the economy sputters and voters seek solutions from Washington.
 
However, a top Senate Republican leadership aide immediately indicated Republicans – and some Democrats – probably would not be willing to go along with a tax increase to pay for the measure. All Republicans and two Democrats voted against the larger package last week, which included larger tax hikes on millionaires.
 
Reid will also announce he will try to pass the aid bill later this week, something that likely would need the cooperation of Senate Republicans because the Senate would have to set aside an appropriations bill that is currently pending on the floor.
 
The new surtax proposal is a fraction of the 5.6% percent surtax on incomes over $1 million that Democrats originally put forward to offset the cost of the president's broader jobs bill, which had a price tag of about $450 billion.
 
Reid and other Democratic senators are scheduled to hold a press conference call at 2:30 p.m. ET to unveil additional details of their bill.
