The political wags are suggesting a widening rift between President Obama and NY Senator Charles Schumer...The flash point was said to be the tax rate debate over extending current rates past this year. Politicos like Schumer wanted to use the debate for some class warfare to rally the nation against those millionaires and billionaires.
The President wanted to avoid that fight and reach a compromise with the GOP.
It will be interesting to see of the leftist President is ostracized by his own as he tries to respond to the will of the people as expressed in an election.
Of course, Senator Schumer's reelection was never in doubt so he didn't have to face the defeats and close calls many in his party did last month.
