    Obama tax plan: $80 billion in cuts, five-minute filings

    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sen. Barack Obama on Tuesday proposed overhauling the tax code to lower taxes for the poor and middle class, increase them for the rich and make it so most Americans can file their taxes in five minutes.

    The public gives the Obama administration little credit for its tax cuts, which according to the Washington-based Tax Policy Center lowered federal income taxes for 93 percent of filers. Asked to compare their federal income taxes to what they paid during George W. Bush's presidency, only 7 percent say they are lower; 20 percent say their taxes are higher and 65 percent say they are about the same.

    No they aren't all ignorant. Some of the yes, most probably not. And where were the Tea Party mentioned in either article?

    This guy is just a left wing hack nothing more. BTW, "the Dane" you can drop the pretense now. No one believes for a second you are "centrist"
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    @ The Dane -- Did you happen to notice that your link refers to something he said in 2007? Where's the beef??

    And as to increasing them for the rich, until we close the deduction loopholes for the really rich, it doesn't matter. For every tax increase, there's a loophole around it.

    And as to 65% saying they're about the same . . . I'd venture a guess that, off the tops of their heads, most people would have absolutely no idea.

    And as to filing their taxes in five minutes, with our present system, that's going to be impossible.

    What a bunch of political propaganda -- by Obama, not you.

    The point is that he said he was going to lower taxes and he did. The tea parties entire premise is lower taxes and protecting the constitution. Since Obama is a constitutional scholar and wouldn't dream of defying it (which is why he is pro 2nd amendment), the only issue remaining is lowering taxes, which he has done for every single racist ignorant tea party member.

    Despite the frequent cries of American Republicans that Barack Obama is trying to bring European-style socialism to the United States, it is now very clear that the US president wishes to govern from one place and one place only: the center.
    Why should I remove a centrist title when I support a centrist president.

    I would choose your words wisely when you dance with me or I'll wipe the floor with you.

    @ The Dane -- I'm having difficulty locating those cuts. Do you have a good link?

    Taxes are going up next year, for everyone.
    EITC payments are going down for the 2011 tax year.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    See this is what we're talking about. Peoples' taxes went down and most of them aren't even aware of it.
