Look at that list.

At a time of severe recession and job loss - they really do not care, it's all about enacting their "transformative" liberal agenda.

Since January of 2009, President Obama and Congressional Democrats have enacted into law gross tax increases totaling more than $670 billion, or more than $2,100 for every man, woman and child in the United States. The list of tax increases includes at least 14 violations of the President’s pledge not to raise taxes on Americans earning less than $200,000 for singles and $250,000
for married couples.

I trust that conservatives and independents will proudly rub Obama's face in this pile of crap come election time.

How many years does this cover? That piece of information is conspicuously absent. Regardless, we have bills to pay. Taxes are going up. Get used to it. Get over it.

I think most people acknowledge taxes are going up. Does that mean you absolve the President of his promise? Do you concur that the President is either a liar, inexperienced, or terribly naive? Or maybe all three? How else do you explain a "no new taxes" pledge in light of this damning information?

What's that you say? Politicians lie? I'm not that naive.

Now, if someone would enlighten us as to how many years those taxes are spread out?

Great, just when I thought I was having a good day.

Hmmm, interesting tidbit in there: Limit the deduction for compensation to officers, employees and directors of certain health insurance providers.

I wonder just who that little provision of the bill is targeting...private health insurers I presume? I think Obama's, "If you like your current insurance, you keep that insurance" should be amended to say, "If you like your current insurance, you keep that insurance at a higher cost" OR "If you like your current insurance, you keep that insurance until we tax them out of existence."

Why does it matter if they're spread out or not? The realization is that they are signed into law by Barack Obama, who said "not one single dime." How do you reconcile his actions with his words? Putting off the misery to some other President while using a Semantical Back Door to absolve himself of responsibility is the work of a liar, not an honest person running for office.

I can't believe you're asking this question. You're much brighter than that, so I'll ignore it.

Okie-doke, Aero. Obama lied, grandma died. Feel better, now?
