Tax Cut Double Talk?: Join the Live Chat

[cnn-photo-caption image=http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2009/images/01/02/liveblogfinal.copy.jpg]

Is it a case of double-talk on taxes? As lawmakers vote on the deal President Obama worked out with Republican leaders, we'll contrast his campaign statements on taxes for the wealthy with the deal he cut now. We'll also play you clips of John McCain.. back when he thought tax cuts for the wealthy.. were just plain wrong. Keeping them honest. Plus, breaking news, the death of America's top diplomatic troubleshooter in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

    It seems to me that Sarah Palin had her own agenda regarding her trip to Haiti. We all know the desperate situation that the people of Haiti are in. Why has she shunned the media(with the exception of fox news)? It was a great photo-op for her I guess.

    Great program tonight! Your Taliban documentary over the weekend was excellent. I also enjoyed your guest appearance on Andy Cohen's show on Bravo last night.

    It's really patriotic of everyone to rush to the aide of Haiti. However, there are women and children here in the U.S. that are sleeping under viaducts and eating out of garbage cans. The government should seriously consider cleaning up it's own backyard before organizing a clean up crew for a nation of strangers.

    Sal Alosi was very foolish to try that kind of trick when cameras are everywhere. Not the brightest light in the room....

    @ Emily, Yes I know, that's why I don't understand why this wasn't put before congress earlier.
    Read that repeal of dadt and a bill for the rescue workers of 9/11 didn't make it either.

    Good to be with you all again! Goodnight!

    "Why do married men want to kill their wives?"
    It seems this guy only married her for money, if what they say is true. This was not a marriage for love.

    What is up with these men trying to kill their wives? It's like it open wife season.

    I am very interested in seeing what will happen to Julian Assange.
    Secret code in Mona Lisa's eyes...don't know what to say about that.

    Great reporting by Gary! He is such a professional, but why did they make him stand in the rain?

    Please checks the facts. The Stock Market hit a high of 14,000 in Oct 2007 under Bush. The average unemployment during the Bush years was 5 to 6 %. Remember, Bush took office in 2001 at the beginning of a recession, then 9/11 occurred, which further torpedoed the economy within just a few months.

    If I were Mark Madoff, I would have hoped that the Gov. might have given me a new identity or something. (Since he turned him in, and in all accounts, appears innocent). The stigma of being the son of Bernie must have been sounding awful to try and live down.

    It's been a long day. First the harrowing Senate vote.. and then Holbrooke news. Wonder who will be in charge of AfPak matter going forward. Holbrooke leaves HUGE shoes to fill. World has lost a tremendous peace worker. Concerned.
    Peace. Rest up all.
    Thanks AC.
