This time around, Obama says he is determined to let the tax cuts expire on income above $200,000 for individuals and $250,000 for married couples. He wants to extend the Bush tax cuts for people making less.House Speaker John Boehner and other Republicans have said they are open to more tax revenue through reducing or eliminating tax breaks.
