    We've already noted the tax cut for 95% of working families, and have you forgotten way back when Obama proposed letting the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy lapse, and the GOP threatened to not renew unemployment payments to stop him? And have you forgotten when Obama more recently offered to cut spending by $4 for every $1 dollar increase in taxes on the wealthy? And the GOP walked away from it.

    Obama did not claim a tax rate cut, but under the broader heading of tax cuts (which includes the subsets - tax rate cuts and tax credits).

    As Politifact pointed out:

    Obama: "We cut taxes for 95 percent of working families."

    Politifact: "Because the stimulus act did give that broad-based tax cut to workers, we rate Obama's statement True."

    Notice they say tax cut, and not tax rate cut?

    more nonsense. that is due to the dishonesty of the government using those fees for something that was not proper and the fact is the rich get no additional benefits and pay far far more taxes than the rest of the country. And its your boy Obumble who whines about the rich not paying their fair share of federal income taxes which is a blatant lie. He's dishonest POS who spews that crap to pander to people like you

    Stupid is, argueing that some should not be paying a lower rate than others and then doing the very same thing elsewhere.

    you ignore different sources of income. if there is a flat rate on income from salary and a flat rate on income from investments everyone is being treated the same

    Ignore? Hardly. I don't care. Income is income.

    there are times when a square is a square rather than just a rectangle. what Obama did was launch a series of tax - credits. economically, these function no different from any other kind of keynesian spending.

    That is the reality you ignored in your dishonest statement before that the federal income tax was the only source of revenue for the federal government.
