ABSTRACT
The article discusses U.S. President Barack Obama's persistence with his tax plans which was opposed by the House and Senate Republicans. It refers to his tax plan as political posturing after his approval polls went down 40%. It notes that his tax plan raises taxes on a crippled economy, resulted from his Administration's economic policy and that most of his 500 billion U.S. dollars job plan is a repeat of his failed 800 billion U.S. dollar stimulus plan.
