    Obama Announces Massive, Crushing Tax Hikes

    This is madness. Obama has got to be denied a Congressional majority in 2010:

    The Right-Wing Underground: Obama Announces Massive, Crushing Tax Hikes

    Will kicking "the rich" (the small business owners who create all the jobs and already pay 60% of the taxes) while their down with one of the most gigantic tax hikes in U.S. history make what Barack "hope over fear" Obama constantly insists is the "greatest crisis since the Great Depression" better or worse?

    Democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what's for dinner (paraphrasing James Bovard).

    I have a question. Is there ANY tax hike in history that you don't consider an apocalyptic event that will result in a total economic collapse and zombies taking over the world?

    Your huffing and puffing might be a little more believable if I didn't think you'd do exactly the same thing no matter HOW large or small Obama's tax hike was. Let's have some perspective here. Raising the tax rate from 35% to 38% on people making more than ~$350K is not going to cause the armageddon. We had higher tax rates in the 80s and 90s, and we were fine.

    The tax cuts were never permanent to begin with. That's why they have an expiration built in. Get it now? Good.

    Hopefully people making more than a few 100K a year will have to pay more. Otherwise, why did we elect a Democrat?

    I'd love to see regressive taxes reduced e.g. state registrations for vehicles.

    I guess fail depends on whether or not you support the tax increases, doesn't it?

    So how is that Obama's fault? He doesn't have to do anything at all and the tax rate will return to the way it was. If you want to blame someone for raising taxes in 2010, blame George Bush.
