Obama has to let the tax cuts for the wealthy expire and not just because it's the right thing to do. If the cuts expire, the only way Republicans can reintroduce them is through legislation, which means they would have to cooperate with Democrats. If Obama just extends the tax cuts as a peace offering, there is no reason for Republicans to behave any differently than they have in the past, which is to ignore and belittle his efforts to "cross the isle" and continue with their agenda of destruction. So why would Obama surrender one of his best bargaining chips unless he really isn't about fighting the Republicans at all. Let's hope that's not the case. Make the Republicans work for those tax cuts, Mr. President, so that if your signing them into law, your also signing a major stimulous bill and taxing companies that hire cheap labor instead of employing Americans.
