You know a tiger by its stripes. Obama told Joe the Plumber “We need to spread the wealth around.” Joe Biden told Katie Couric “You need to get in the game,” meaning, “you need to pay more taxes.”
A blog post on Whitehouse.gov was “President Obama: There’s Only One Way to Solve These Challenges – Together “
An excerpt from the blog:
“The President said there’s one thing we can do right now to provide a foundation for a solution that helps the economy and gives middle-class families more certainty in the coming weeks. And it’s something that everyone agrees on: pass a law that would prevent any tax hike whatsoever on the first $250,000 of everybody’s income.”
“That means every American, including the wealthiest Americans, get a tax cut,” he said. “It means that 98 percent of all Americans, and 97 percent of all small businesses won’t see their taxes go up a single dime”
I’m always intimidated about writing about such things as this. There’s a lot of really smart people that write about this stuff. Until I realize that it always comes down to common sense.
So, Mr. President, I don’t believe you. First of all, you’ve had four years to address “these challenges,” and “give me more certainty.” You’ve done everything but. Second of all, I’ve never heard of a politician that didn’t want to “help the middle class,” but you haven’t done anything up to now.
You want to help the “middle class?” Get out of the way and leave us alone.
It’s just easy to blame “the rich” isn’t it? Why do democrats always lay blame at the feet of this rich? Like raising their taxes is going to make everything ok. That is so misleading, deceptive, and wrong that no one should believe it for a second, but many do. Fiscally, it’s a drop in the bucket. Its scape-goatism to blame the rich. By the way, it’s not just “the rich” that are going to get their taxes raised. If you think so, I’ve got a president you should vote for (oh, forget it, about half of you already did).
By the way, what is “The Middle Class?” Here’s the faq from the Census Bureau web site:
What is the income of the “middle class”
The Census Bureau does not have an official definition of “middle class”.
(More on the Census Bureau in another post. Unbelievable.)
So, do you think that taxes are not going to be raised on anyone except “the rich” (those bastards)? Remember, the tax cuts we’re talking about are known as “The Bush Tax Cuts.” You know, one of those rich-people loving Republicans. Read up on them, the arguments are endless. (The arguments on the fiscal cliff are endless as well, pick who you want to believe). My point is, if they’re not saved, all of our taxes will go up. Tax cuts from a Republican president. Under a Democrat’s watch. However, the Republican Congress will get the blame (Check the website). Obama, you are a clever player. Blame Republicans for increasing taxes that a Republican originally reduced. Today’s Republicans need to get some sand.
Look, I’ll admit. It’s far more complicated than I can figure out. However, as a middle-classer, (defined by myself) I know this, I pay a lot already, and I’ll be paying more soon. I would say “grab your wallets,” but you should have thought about that earlier in November.
