    So, assuming you cannot read, and I think you have made that case yourself so far, let me explain further. Obama never said this himself, however, his administration did say they believed it would cap at 8%, but they also allowed for a high margin of error. If you still do not get it, then they said this, "We think it will cap at 8%, that is what our numbers tell us, but there is room for a lot of error". Get it?



    Bush does not run anything. Of course his approval rating has gone up. Need I remind you of this:

    When Bush left office he was right at or under 30% approval rating. Obama began at a 60% approval rating and has dipped a to under 50%, but has actually steadily increased over this year. Any other bull**** you want to spread around or are we done here? Yeah, links and good sources are a good thing to bring to an argument (by the way).
    Good Lord, Man, Obama Administration officials speak for the Administration and thus speak for Obama. In fact that real unemployment rate is over 16.2% but then again keep making excuses for this empty suit.

    As for the Obama approval rating, not sure what rating you are looking at but

    RealClearPolitics - Election Other - President Obama Job Approval

    Bush never had an approval rating this low during his first term so try again

    Your support for Obama policies is misguided as the results don't warrant that support

    There's always ineffeciencies when you're talking about trillions of dollars....at the same time the majority of state and local spending goes towards education and law enforcement. The majority of spending at the federal level goes towards entitlements/Defense. I think all those things are necessary and make up a build of what I'm taxed on.

    Except entitlements are funded by your FICA taxes not FIT. Suggest you go to the Treasury site and tell me what items there are reallly justified and needed that aren't funded at the state level. I came up with a 1.5 trillion dollar govt by eliminating duplicated expenses at the Federal level.

    Large Majority Of Americans, Including Most Republicans, Support Raising Taxes On The Wealthy!

    "As the debate about how to deal with the federal deficit heats up, two new polls show that large, bipartisan majorities of Americans support raising taxes on the wealthy, as President Obama has proposed doing.

    A central piece of Obama's deficit reduction plan calls for raising taxes on annual income above $250,000. Though tax hikes are generally thought to be unpopular, both a Washington Post/ABC News poll and a McClatchy-Marist survey found that a majority of Americans supported that proposal. What's more, even a majority of Republicans in the Washington Post/ABC News poll said they favored raising taxes on the wealthiest Americans."

    Even the Majority Of Wealthy Support Tax Increases On Millionaires: Poll


    "For those earning $1 million or more annually, 65 percent of respondents said they would support income tax increases.

    So that makes class warfare right? Again, why such passion for raising taxes on anyone during a recession and with 25 Plus million unemployed and under employed?

    Interesting how many of those millionaires supporting raising taxes on them haven't sent in more than they are required. Guess spreading liberal misery equally is always the goal of a liberal.

    No what that "makes" is a peaceful revolution provided for us by our wise forefathers, where the majority of the country decides they are tired of being shat upon by millionaires and billionaires.

    You really have a jealousy of others who have more than you. How did any rich person make you have less? Your class envy tells me a lot about you

    Nearly half of US households escape fed income tax - Yahoo! Finance

    Why does anyone expect half the income earners to fund the entire govt. and the liberal spending appetite

    The only envy I have is for the strong middle class and the more vibrant economy our country had when taxes were more progressive.
