Washington Free Beacon
President Barack Obama said Thursday in an interview with Al Sharpton that rejecting tax hikes on high-earners and corporations is ‘the thing that binds’ the Republican Party together.
“My sense is that their basic view is that nothing is important enough to raise taxes on wealthy individuals or corporations, and they would prefer to see these kinds of cuts that could slow down our recovery over closing tax loopholes,” Obama said. “That’s the thing that binds their party together at this point.”
He also met with him and other Black leaders to discuss Economic Policy. Why in God’s Name would you talk to somebody whom has had economic problems in the past about Economic Issues? It is sort of like if I went to a Drug Dealer and asked for a recommendation on what drug I should take for my Fibromyalgia.
Main topic of the group; how can we get more government money to pay their salaries in perpetually? All while the poor in the communities get even more government dependent. New Servitude Programs.
Participants in the meeting included:
• Melanie Campbell, President, National Coalition of Black Civic Participation
• Ralph Everett, President, Joint Center for Economic and Political Studies
• Wade Henderson, President, The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights
• Ben Jealous, President, National Association of the Advancement of Colored People

So where was Herman Cain, Allen West or Walter Williams?
