We Are All Saved From The "Fiscal Cliff" Do not Fear!


A White House official has confirmed POLITICO’s list of CEOs scheduled to attend a meeting Wednesday with President Barack Obama on the fiscal cliff, and sent over the list of union and progressive leaders who will sit down with him Tuesday:

•Mary Kay Henry, SEIU
•Lee Saunders, AFSCME
•Dennis Van Roekel, NEA
•Rich Trumka, AFL-CIO
•Neera Tanden, Center for American Progress
•John Podesta, Center for American Progress
•Bob Greenstein, Center for Budget and Policy Priorities
•Laura Burton Capps, Common Purpose Project
•Max Richtman, National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare
•Justin Ruben, MoveOn
•Deepak Bhargava, Center for Community Change

This list hits many of the major unions and liberal organizations that are urging the president to hold firm on his commitment to end tax cuts for wealthier families and to protect major entitlement programs.

Will this meeting be on CSPAN? This is supposed to be the most transparent administration ever. Or is Obama lying?

Why invite moveon in the first place?

You know, the children who ran the campaign add that if you vote Republican, old people were going to haunt you while you were having sex.

Yeah, those fricking morons are top of the list for the fiscal issues of our country.

And people wonder how that a-hole got reelected.

I think you answered your own question. But he is talking to more than just who help elect him.

It's in the OP that business leaders will be meeting tomorrow (after these "folks"). Are you dense?

He sure is, but why do these folks interests get a seat at the table (before business leaders) on a discussion regarding tax policy?

That's easy.

These are the groups Obama is beholden to. They meet first, and lay out the guidelines of what their cut will be, and their suggestions trump business leaders.

I was wondering who Deepak Bhargava is. He is a community Organizer affiliated with ACORN and Democratic Socialists of America.

I have no idea why this is the case, but election do have consequences and who helps you get elected do have a say in future policy. That is how it works, pay for play.

I feel confident we are screwed on the fiscal cliff but that will be typical washington, not extra special corruption by obama.

It is obvious. But why is the one Obama supporter on this thread seemingly ashamed of Obama meeting with these people whether it is on Tuesday (today) or Wednesday? Odd, as I thought all Obama supporters embraced Obama's policies and his people.
