Should Dem's be saying Obama negotiated for Hostages when he signed the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest 2%?

Republicans now say Obama owns the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest 2% because he signed an extension for them. What they wont tell people is, Obama negotiated an extension of unemployment benefits for the unemployed that the republicans were holding hostage .They refused to give them their extension of unemployment insurance unless he gave the wealthiest 2% their tax cuts. Not only did Obama negotiate for them but us as well by getting us a pay roll tax cut, even for republicans. This is a negotiation Obama done well and I support.

Keeping taxes the same is not a cut. Besides it was for everyone not just the top 2%

First of all, those tax cuts didn’t just benefit the wealthiest 2%, they benefited everybody. If they let those tax cuts sunset, everybody’s taxes, especially the poor, would have gone up. And yes, that is called negotiating. That is how laws have been passed for years in this country. The first example we seen of that was the 3/5 compromise that prevented Southern slave owners from obtaining a majority of seats in Congress, and extending slavery indefinitely.
