  • Now Obama May Not Increase Taxes for the Wealthy

    I actually heard him say during his "This Week" interview on ABC. I actually find this to be a positive development. Not sure how his base will react.

    Democrat Barack Obama says he would delay rescinding President Bush's tax cuts on wealthy Americans if he becomes the next president and the economy is in a recession, suggesting such an increase would further hurt the economy.

    Perhaps he's finally figured out that tax increases are a political loser?

        I think he's starting to feel the heat for promising to raise taxes. You know, at one point, his plans promised to raise the FICA tax on those making more than $90+ thousand. I'm not sure if that is still in his economic plan or not.

          Well, we've had a similar pointless discussion about whether or not he's going to withdraw from Iraq "immediately" or not, too.

              We are getting higher taxes no matter what. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac alone guarantee that.

                The Iraq war bill all but guarantees that. Fannie and Freddie just make it that much more closer to a certainty.

                          What choice does he have?

                          His plan will lower the tax burden for 80% of households.

                          McPalin lies, lies, lies and then lies about it some more.

                          People are obviously buying it.

                            I don't believe him or McCain. Both will be forced to raise taxes.
