Obama Promises Liberals He'll End Bush Tax Cuts for Millionaires

 This is a promise we're counting on:

President Obama met with labor and progressive groups on Tuesday, including Mary Kay Henry, president of SEIU, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, and heads of the National Education Association and American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees. Progressive groups like MoveOn and the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities also attended. 

"MoveOn’s 7 million members will be pleased to know that President Obama today strongly reiterated his steadfast commitment to ensuring that the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest 2 percent finally end December 31—and to protecting the middle class in the process," said the group's political action executive director Justin Ruben after meeting with Obama at the White House.
