In 2008, Barrack Obama assured us that those making less than $250,000 dollars would not see their taxes increase. Not by a single dime. Let’s fast-forward to today. Can you guess how many tax hikes the president has proposed since taking office? 100? 200 perhaps? You’re not even in the ballpark. Give up?
Barack Obama has proposed raising your taxes 442 times.
But it gets worse. There’s a common misconception that Obamacare is responsible for the bulk of these proposed tax hikes. Don’t be fooled. The total of 442 excludes the additional 20 taxes contained in Obamacare.
Feel like you’ve been cheated?
The watchdog group Americans for Tax Relief has provided a year by year accounting of Obama’s proposed tax increases. It’s startling. Here are his tax plans broken down by the year they would become effective:
2010 – 79 tax increases
2011 – 52 tax increases
2012 – 47 tax increases
2013 – 34 tax increases
2014 – 137 tax increases
2015 – 93 tax increases
Hold onto your wallets and keep an eye on your purse because like his fellow Democrats in Milwaukee, Barack Obama is looking for other opportunities to pillage the middle class. When asked by a national magazine back in 2009 if he would consider a national tax on soda and other sugary foods, Obama said, “I actually think it’s an idea that we should be exploring.”
Any economic growth this administration as seen during it’s tenure has slowed to a trickle. Its time for a change.
According to a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday July 2 2014, a plurality of voters believe that Barack Obama is the worst president since World War II. 33% of voters consider Obama’s performance to be the worst since 1945, 28% expressed the same about George W Bush, and 13% said Jimmy Carter was the most inept.
45% of these same voters said the country would be in better shape with Mitt Romney as president, compared to 38% of voters stating the country would be worse off.
My only question is, where were these voters 2 years ago?
