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

    2 Obama officials: No guarantee taxes won't go up
    WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama's treasury secretary said Sunday he cannot rule out higher taxes to help tame an exploding budget deficit, and his chief economic adviser would not dismiss raising them on middle-class Americans as part of a health care overhaul.

    As the White House sought to balance campaign rhetoric with governing, officials appeared willing to extend unemployment benefits. With former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan saying he is "pretty sure we've already seen the bottom" of the recession, Obama aides sought to defend the economic stimulus and calm a jittery public.
    So much for Dear Leader's promise not to raise taxes on the middle class.

    The Anti-Republicans' concept of "deficit neutral"--tax the hell out of everybody.

    And why are they having to raise taxes? To keep health care costs down, so we don't have to pay as much, except in taxes, where we have to pay twice as much.

    It's the Biden school of economic theory--spend your way out of bankruptcy.

    Surely this comes as no surprise.

    Ofc taxes have to rise, people must be delusional to think taxes can stay the same after so much money was spent by the Govt. in such a short space of time and that applies to almost every country who had a huge stimulus packages.

    It is no surprise at all.

    However, I am sure it comes as great shock to Dear Leader's deluded disciples who believed he could work miracles, turn water into wine, walk on water, heal the sick, make the blind see, raise the dead, and tell really funny jokes on the Tonight Show.

    The PBO sychophants aren't surprised. They'll eat **** if PBO told them to. PBO's voting base is either unemployed, in this country illegally, or too young and too stupid to know just how they're getting ass ****ed. The worst ones are the ones that don't care how bad PBO ****s up the country, as long as gays are allowed to serve in the military, or gays can marry, or Roe v. Wade isn't over turned, or hug trees. They're totally incapable of seeing the big picture. Special interests suck.

    So much for it not having happened yet (if it ever does). **** people, give me a break.
    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.

    "if it ever does"?

    When have governments not been eager to spend and eager to tax?

    Why are you so willing to believe government is willing to work in your best interests, when the entire history of government demonstrates the exact opposite.
