Not sure if any of you caught it, but I was in the middle of another project and had CNN on in the background, and President Obama was speaking to the Business Rountable. The prepared speech was stuff I had heard before, including some from his speech to Congress a couple weeks ago, with some reiteration of certain points (no one will have their taxes increased in the short term, etc.). Afterwards, there was a Q and A session, and it seemed to be a very cordial meeting. I have no idea of the political leanings of the Business Roundtable, whether they are considered conservative or arch-conservative (I’m going to rule out liberal right off the bat), but they seemed to be very eager to work with the President’s team and seemed to suggest they have already been working closely with the team.
One point that seemed to be very important to them had to do with deferrals, which I gather has something to do with international tax laws. At any rate, did anyone else catch any of that? Your thoughts?
