What I didn't see was Congress sending the President a tax extension bill that didn't include the wealthiest or a bill that extended UI for all those in need. The President compromised to protect those who can't protect themselves, because it was his only choice. It really turns my stomach that a brave act to protect those in desperate need is spun as a cowardly act of a weak person. It took guts to do what the President did.
Absolutely right. and the Pres went even further; the EIC, 2% payroll tax cut, S-CHIP, etc., etc. I'm surprised he got as much as he did! The NYT called it a "second stimulus package". That is NOT "bad negotiating" getting everything he did for one concession.
