Well, the word is out! Obama wants $1.5 trillion in new tax increases. Of course, this will only affect the rich and corporations … you know. Except that … corporations do not pay taxes. They pass the additional cost of doing business on to the consumer. Ummm! For you highly intelligent progressive-liberal types … that’s you and me! It is good, however, to hear the rich are finally going to pay their fair share … since they already pay something like 90% federal income tax revenues already.
Of course that may cut down on the ability of lots of small businesses to hire new employees … but that’s ok too … since Obama is going to just have us all work for the government. That might need still more taxes … to pay everyone … but you know …. fair is fair! Wouldn’t Jimmy Carter be proud!!
What a bunch of BS!
If Obama’s administration would just quit wasting our money … like:
- Giving $535 to his Solyndra cronies
- Sponsoring gay film festivals at the Bulgarian embassy
- Giving a university $219,000 to study the hookup behavior of female college students in New York
- Flying Barack and Michelle to Martha’s Vinyard on separate jets for vacation
- Buying treadmills for out-of-shape shrimp
- Maybe cutting back on a few rounds of golf
- Giving $650 million for a digital television converter box coupon program
- Michelle Obama spending $10 million in tax payer funds on vacations in just one year
- Paying $3.5 million for repainting and adding a security camera to one bridge in Oregon
- Giving $8 million to a Missouri bridge project that was already fully funded by the state
- Wasting $1 million on road signs touting stimulus funds at work in Ohio
- And last but not least … sponsoring jello wrestling matches in the frozen wastelands of Antarctica …
We would probably not need to raise taxes!
It seems that Obama did his part to support the Canadian job market. The two buses he bought for his recent tax-payer financed luxury bus tour were made in Canada. The Prevost buses coast $1.1 million each and are the company’s top of the line luxury models … like those used by major traveling rock bands. It is good to see Obama getting the finest in Canadian exports … while 14 million Americans are unemployed.
I am sure the higher taxes will help!
