Obama To Raise Taxes To Support His Special Interest Groups

Everyone is jumping blindly on the Hussein Obama waiting for them to pass out the Kool Aid but maybe they should take a look at just a few of the tax hikes we are going to endure.

He keeps promising more and more and all his special interest groups are already figuring out their new windfalls. But someone is going to have to pay for that. Who? Well, I don't know about you, I am surely will have to pay.

Take a few minutes and read a few of these articles "in his own words" of what he will do to pay for the projects.

“I believe it is important for us to look at all the options," Obama said. "The best option would be to make sure that those who are in the best position to help solve this problem are willing to do so.”

"Meet the Press" moderator Tim Russert asked if this proposal was indeed a tax increase, and Obama said the proposal amounts to "a tax increase for people like myself.”

I find in insulting that Obama said that "people like myself are paying a little bit more". As a member of the legislative branch of our goverment (Senators and members of the House of Representatives) they do not pay anything into the Social Security trust fund. Not a single penny of their salary is subject to the social security tax. They have a completely separate retirement fund that is 100 percent funded by us, the taxpayers and the cost to them is nothing. How dare he use himself as an example of someone who would be willing to contribute more of his salary to Social Security because despite a six digit income, these people contribute zip. It's very easy for them to take action on raising this tax because it's a tax that they don't pay so raising it doesn't affect their take home pay at all. It only affects us, the taxpayers but then again when did any of these elected officials really care about us (I mean really care in us, not just pander to get our vote).

Well,the truth is that all middle class will be hit but he will target families who earn over $95,000 not "people like him". His wife Michelle earns almost 1 million dollars alone at the "non-profit" hospital she works for. So NO it is not people like him. He tries to downplay his wealth and act like he is like the average American family.

Here are a few articles to read in his own words of his plans to raise taxes:

Obama likes to call it "roll back Bushes Tax cut" which means HE is going to increase our taxes yet again.

He wants to spent 845 billion to ship the money overseas so they are saying it is going to be a tax on our gasoline of up to 70 cents a gallon depending on what he can get approved. I'm all for helping others but how about helping Americans first? And how about the money coming from Government cutting their expenses and not asking us to foot a bill for another group?

Listen to this radio show where you can hear Obama discussing raising taxes yet again! He is going to raise the Social Security tax we pay in order to pay for the "raising property taxes for Seniors". How about not charging them property tax period? But I am sure using the word "seniors" is just his way to sway the Senior vote. It's just a way for him to get more taxes approved.
