    President Obama on Friday kept up the pressure on Republicans to agree to revenue increases in a deal to raise the debt ceiling, claiming 80 percent of the public supports Democrats' demand for tax increases.

    "The American people are sold," Obama said. "The problem is members of Congress are dug in ideologically."

    Throughout the press conference, Obama blasted Republicans for ignoring what he said is the will of the American people by rejecting tax increases that would balance out spending cuts in a debt package.

    "This is not an issue of salesmanship to the American people," Obama said.

    "I hope [Republicans are] not just listening to lobbyists and special interests ... I hope they're listening to the American people as well," Obama said, citing "poll after poll" showing Republican voters, as well as Democrats, believe in taking "a balanced approach" — including both increased revenues and spending cuts in a plan to cut the deficit.

    Obama repeated his warning that the country is "running out of time" to avert a financial “Armageddon.”

    I know of not one person, at least not one tax payer, who is sold on a tax increase. Also, this is just another lie from Obama. Didn't he say he wouldn't raise taxes on the middle class?

    Like I've said: cognitive dissonance.
    "Our president delivered his State of the Union message to Congress. That is one of the things his contract calls for -- to tell congress the condition of the country. This message, as I say, is to Congress. The rest of the people know the condition of the country, for they live in it, but Congress has no idea what is going on in America, so the president has to tell 'em." ~ Will Rogers
