No Reality With Egomaniac As Obama Claims People Who Didn’t Vote For Him Also Support His Plans To Raise Taxes…
Obama Claims People Who Didn’t Vote For Him Also Support His Plans To Raise Taxes…
Barack Obama took his so-called ‘mandate‘ to raise taxes on the rich a step further today, claiming at a press conference that not only do the majority of Americans agree with him on this issue, people who didn’t vote for him also support raising taxes on the rich.
Asked by a reporter if “closing loopholes instead of raising rates” would “satisfy” him, the President said that it wouldn’t, and mused that his stance on this issue ”shouldn’t be a surprise to anybody” at this point.
“If there was one thing that everybody understood was a big difference between myself and Mr. Romney, it was, when it comes to how we reduce our deficit, I argued for a balanced, responsible approach, and part of that included making sure that the wealthiest Americans pay a little bit more,” the President said, adding that, “I think every voter out there understood that that was an important debate, and the majority of voters agreed with me, not — by the way, more voters agreed with me on this issue than voted for me.”

What a dictator mentality, he really believes this statement he has made.

Whenever this argument of raising taxes on the rich comes up, I always say that the whole nation should go back to the tax rates of tax year 2000. Since we're all Americans and in this together, let's everyone pitch in. In tax year 2000, fewer Americans received Earned Income Credit, meaning that there were many more payers into the Federal Income Tax system. Tax year 2000 was under Bill Clinton and I figured those on the left would like those rates but they don't. They only like them for the rich. It amazes me how Democrats only want to target one group of citizens while exempting the rest.

obama is on a roll. He has been reelected by a combination of socialists, racists, unions, welfare abusers, illegals, Sandra Flukes and other bottom feeding pond scum. Obviously they now outnumber the rest of us.
So, Mr. god figures he can do anything he pleases. Hunker down, bunker down, lock and load and get ready for a very rough and costly four years ahead. We ain't gonna like it.
And if we don't get a feasible candidate in 2016, Hillary is waiting her turn.
