Obama considering breaking promise to raise taxes on the middle class

Original post made by Felicia on Aug 2, 2009

Let's see Obama has gotten us so deep in debt he is considering breaking his campaign promise and taxing everyone. Wonder what all you Obama lovers think now? Bet you have no problem with being taxed more if you had a job.

I do not know why anyone should be surprised that he has backpedaled as he is becoming more and more desperate to get his "mission" complete.

He's a politician, anybody that thought he would act any different than any other politician (say one thing and do another) is foolish.

I would be very surprised and upset if he were to do that as I voted for him and thought he was different or at least would be different.

I think they are going to have to raise taxes because they just released today the tax revenue figures which show that corporate income tax is off 52% and personal income tax is off 26%!!! No money available for all of these projects of Obama. Looks like the entire US is going to be like California.............bring on the revolution as it is coming!!!!

Facts,

"Radical Right Wing Fanatics".

That description comes across as paranoid. Are you indeed paranoid of your neighbors that simply don't agree with you? Are you always so afraid of others and their points of view that only differ from yours?

There is help for you if you can find the strength to admit you have delusional episodes.

Good luck to you!
