While extreme, AOG's point has some merit and there is a continuous push (especially over the last few years) to throw more and more of the burden onto a smaller and smaller group of people. At some point, you have to say to those at the bottom "ENOUGH!". We all remember Franklin's quote about "when the poor realize they can vote themselves good from the public treasury".

As for the OP, Boehner has made concessions and I think the president would be wise to cooperate and meet him at the million dollar mark. If he doesn't, it will be a huge slap in the face to the republican party (and yet the libs will continue to say it's the republicans who won't budge)
