It’s A Done Deal… Obama Caves – Will Extend Bush Tax Cuts
Filed under: — Robert Farrow @ 12:34 am

Posted by Jim Hoft

Barack Obama finally caved to Republican demands and will not raise taxes in January on America’s top earners. The president cut a deal with Republicans on extending the Bush tax cuts.
FOX News reported:

The Obama administration, as part of last-minute negotiations with congressional leaders over the expiration of the Bush-era tax cuts, is proposing a one-year payroll tax reduction that would cut the amount contributed to Social Security from 6.2 percent to 4.2 percent, a senior congressional aide confirmed to Fox Business.

News of the proposed payroll tax reduction, originally reported by the Wall Street Journal, came ahead of a White House news conference Monday evening in which President Obama renewed his calls for tax relief targeting the middle class and his criticism of making tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans permanent.

But in the end, he said, a compromise must be reached before the Bush-era tax cuts expire at the end of the year, because letting the cuts expire “would be a chilling prospect for the American people.”

Ordinary Americans would become “collateral damage for political warfare in Washington,” he said. “I am not willing to let that happen.”

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell released this statement:

U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell made the following statement Monday regarding a framework of a bipartisan agreement to prevent tax hikes on every American taxpayer :

“I appreciate the determined efforts of the President and Vice President in working with Republicans on a bipartisan plan to prevent a tax hike on any American and in creating incentives for economic growth. Their efforts reflect a growing bipartisan belief that a new direction is needed if we are to revive the economy and help put millions of Americans back to work. Members of the Senate and House will review this bipartisan agreement, but I am optimistic that Democrats in Congress will show the same openness to preventing tax hikes the administration has already shown.”

The left is in full meltdown.

McClain activated, but future remains uncertain (Comcast SportsNet Mid Atlantic)
While the Ravens activated linebacker Rolando McClain from the reserve-retired list Thursday, his future with the team remained uncertain. However, the Ravens were not commenting, and it remained to be seen if McClain would participate Monday when the team was to begin its conditioning program. McClain showed up late for an unimpressive workout on Tuesday, and the Ravens were likely seeking to settle his status in the near future. After being released by the Raiders last year, McClain never participated in a practice for the Ravens after they signed him, and he retired abruptly last May at the age of 24.

Ravens reinstate troubled linebacker Rolando McClain, but will he get a chance? (Shutdown Corner)
The Baltimore Ravens are giving Rolando McClain another shot. We think. Interesting: Ravens reinstate Rolando McClain from reserved/retired. — NFL: AroundTheLeague (@NFL_ATL) April 17, 2014 McClain had retired from football and yet stated his intentions to come back this season, and the Ravens gave him a workout on Tuesday. But it didn't go well, per an NFL.com report , and all indications were that his career might be over when he showed up late, couldn't finish his conditioning test and didn't do everything that was asked of him. Rolando McClain got his workout w the Ravens and I'm hearing it was NOT a roaring success. Didn't finish conditioning test, didn't do drills — Aditi Kinkhabwala (@AKinkhabwala) April 15, 2014 So why did the Ravens change his status? It could be a procedural affair, and the Ravens plan to waive him at some point. But right now, he's on their roster. The former No. 8 pick in the 2010 draft started his career with the Oakland Raiders with promise, but things quickly derailed, which led to the team walking away from him. In a 17-month span between 2011 and 2013, he was arrested three times, including a year ago for disorderly conduct — just two weeks after he signed a contract with the Ravens, who opted to give him another shot. Less than two weeks after that, McClain announced his retirement from the league. He was said to be addressing his issues, and the Ravens kept watch on him, as GM Ozzie Newsome — a fellow Alabama player — hoped to keep McClain in the Ravens' picture and get his life in order. During last month's Alabama pro day, which McClain attended, he told the media that he felt he was making strides . "I really focused on the things I need to get right, and football wasn't one of those things," he said. "I feel better as a person overall.” So could McClain, still only 24 years old, get yet another chance? Even with this designation, it's not clear if he has a real future in the NFL, with Tuesday's workout an indication that he still has a lot of work to do. But it appears, as of this writing, that the Ravens hadn't completely closed the door on giving him that shot to do so.  - - - - - - - Eric Edholm is a writer for Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports.

CSN Mock Draft 9.0: Ravens looking Irish? (Comcast SportsNet Mid Atlantic)
Though my mind would be clearer if the NFL would stop teasing us andjust release the 2014 schedule already, I stayed focused long enough to put together the latestCSNbaltimore 2014 mock draft. Click on through to see how the first two rounds of version 9.0 unfold atthis point in the process, but first...

Ravens visited with C.J. Mosley, Jimmie Ward recently (ProFootball Talk on NBC Sportsa)
Rolando McClain wasn’t the only former Alabama linebacker to pay the Ravens a visit this week. Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports that the Ravens had C.J. Mosley in for a pre-draft visit. For Mosley’s sake, let’s hope it went better than McClain’s attempt to restart his NFL career. Mosley is considered the top inside…

OT Moses could be next Virginia player to join Ravens (Comcast SportsNet Mid Atlantic)
The Ravens already have two starters from the University of Virginia left tackle Eugene Monroe, and defensive lineman Chris Canty. The draft could bring the Ravens another starter from Virginia right tackle Morgan Moses. Right tackle and free safety are the Ravens two most glaring needs, and the Ravens could target either position with the 17th pick. Among top-rated right tackles, either Zack Martin of Notre Dame or Taylor Lewan of Michigan could fall to the Ravens.

New deal Ngata happening…yet (Comcast SportsNet Mid Atlantic)
Perhaps one of the more understated needs of the Baltimore Ravens as they prepare for the 2014 NFL Draft is the position of defensive tackle. The team as expected, lost Arthur Jones to free agency and now theyll need to distribute his reps to others currently on the roster and perhaps a few who arent among the potential 53 yet! The obvious choices for more playing time are Brandon Williams and DeAngelo Tyson. Both are capable and as weve seen in the past, defensive line coach Clarence Brooks has a knack for developing such players.
