    Re: 2 Obama officials: No guarantee taxes won't go up

    *UPDATE*

    White House steadfast on pledge of no middle-class tax increase - CNN.com



    The White House shot down concerns Monday that middle-class families may face a tax increase in order to combat rising deficits and a struggling economy.


    Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner says the stimulus plan is working, but tough choices may be ahead.

    "The president was clear during the campaign about his commitment on not raising taxes on middle-class families," White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Monday afternoon. "I don't think any economist would believe that, in the environment that we're in, that raising taxes on middle-class families would make any sense."
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    u beat me to it.
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.

    How is it a "pirouette"? No one ever said taxes would be raised, they just refused to promise they wouldn't be raised. Only a fool would make a no-tax pledge.

    I wonder what Geitner's view from under the bus is like?

    Why would Geitner say that, when it totally against PBO's policy? Either Geitner is stupid, or PBO is lieing his ass off and if Geitner is that stupid, then he probably shouldn't the SECTRES.

    me, I wouldn't ever appoint a SECTRES that stupid.
