Axelrod: President Obama Has Mandate To Raise Taxes

Axelrod: Obama Has Tax Mandate

National Journal

Obama has a mandate to raise taxes on wealthy Americans, senior campaign adviser David Axelrod said on Sunday on CBS’s Face the Nation.

Obama has threatened to veto any bill that that does not allow tax rates to rise on households that earn more than $250,000 a year. Asked if Obama has won a mandate with his election victory, despite winning by a small percentage, Axelrod did not answer directly, but said Obama had won a mandate on taxes.

“On this particular issue, it wasn't close,” Axlerod said, citing exit polling that show about 60 percent of voters agreed with Obama’s position on taxes.

“It is obvious that we can’t resolve the nation’s problems simply by cutting [spending],” Axelrod said. “Where is that revenue gonna come from? President Obama believes it is more equable for it to come from the wealthiest Americans, and most Americans agree with that.”

I guess once anyone that can keep the economy going is taxed to death, then Obama will be happy.

I guess we can say he did get a mandate. Four years of nothing but failure, higher unemployment, lies, scandals, lavish spending and vacations, parties, dead border guards, dead ambassadors and aids, and government take overs didn't deter the American people for reelecting him to office. No matter what he did or does, people don't care as long as they get theirs. It's all about Free Cheese now.

Obama has a mandate to explain the bump in the road called Benghazi. Since this debacle started
2 Generals have been thrown under the bus and
Dear Leader has been like smoke in the trees, very
hard to see. Watergate Part 2= Benghazi-gate...
