Didn't Obama say that there would be no increase in taxes for the lower/middle class of America?

What about the purposed energy tax that would raise prices on gas, natural gas and electricity for our homes?

Pelosi and the most Democrats want this pushed through ASAP.

    "I can make a firm pledge," he said in Dover, N.H., on Sept. 12. "Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes."

    No. He said there would be no personal income tax increase.

    That isn’t income tax.

    no increase "income" tax
    all other tax’s are fair game for the libs.
    most of the proposed alternative tax’s will disproportionately affect the middle class.
    especially the cap and trade tax.
    people that make enough money will still drive what they want even if they have to pay more to do it.
    a nice truck or a SUV will be even more of a status symbol and will further the class warfare, which is probably what the dems want.
    more class warfare=more dem votes

    He must have assumed that no lower/middle class people smoke, drink alcohol or drive vehicles (the increased gasoline tax is coming), either…He’s a liar or he’s incredibly out of touch with the ‘common man’…Take your pick

  5. Laser Says:

    Yeah, as if they wouldn’t raise rates otherwise?

    They’re looking for excuses to raise rates.

    He said no income tax increase(this is political double speak)however he will tax us on everything else; Gas, energy, health benefits, cigarettes, sugary beverages and even the food we eat.
    Watch out soon we will have to pay taxes on the air we breathe.
    When will people wake up and realize that regardless of their party affiliation we as Americans need to stand up and fight for what is right. Government under this administration is going to have a monopoly on every aspect of the private sector. This will diminish what America stands for.
    I believe in protecting the environment but I do not believe this is the way to go about doing it.
    This proposed cap and tax(trade) willl only cause our utility prices to rise dramatically. I did the math and mine will raise more than 800 a year. I live in a small 2 bedroom apt and make well less than 30,000 a year, I cannot afford that.
    Not only that but these taxes wil go straight to the federal government, for more entitlement programs no doubt. How bout instead we give businesses incentives for pursuing cleaner forms of energy. If they are outrageously taxed those increased costs are passed down to the consumer, instead of giving utility companies money to pursue other technologies.

    Sure he gave taxs cuts out.They money saved will be spent on everything else.That’s a real joke.Next time he needs to kiss us before he screws us.

    Unfortunately – this guy is a fascist, so he can’t be taken at his ‘word’.

    Gosam777 shows that the promise was not just income tax – it was any form of tax!

  9. Johnny Sokko Says:

    Yes he did say that. Yes he lied.

    I am loving the defenders pointing out how he said INCOME tax. Like it was a word game. They are basically admitting he was being deliberately deceptive.

    This is merely the beginning, you haven’t seen anything yet. If not this bill he will get it from some other source, but the democrats clearly intend on increasing your taxes paid. This is what they do, they always raise taxes.
