Barack Hussein Obama has claimed that 95% of Americans will get a tax cut if he becomes President. Can we trust him? I don’t think so.
First, he went to Joe the Plumber the other day and was told by Joe that he hopes to buy his bosses business. Obama said that he’d only be taxed if his business produced an income of $250,000 year. At some point, Obama then said that he’d like to spread the wealth.
Obama wants to tax the profits and give that money to people that haven’t earned it. This is socialism. This opened the door for McCain to tell Joe the Plumber that he wouldn’t get a tax increase if McCain became President. He repeated this at the debate.
That set the news media off. They immediately went after Joe the Plumber. He’s not licensed. He’s behind in his taxes. Never mind that he’s not required to be licensed where he lives. Naturally, he’s concerned about taxes if he can’t keep up with the tax burden he already has. The media was camped out in front of Joe the Plumbers house with their satellites and reporters. Joe obliged by granting interviews. David Gergen said on CNN that McCain made a mistake and should have vetted Joe the Plumber.
Later, on the campaign trail, Obama and Biden tried to belittle Joe the Plumber. Biden said that he didn’t know of any plumbers in his neighborhood that made $250,000 per year. Obama went a step further and said “this is who McCain is targeting for his votes? How many plumbers do you know that make a quarter of a million dollars a year?”
The second point regarding Obama promising a tax cut to the middle class. We were told this before. In 1992, Bill Clinton was running for President. He too promised a middle class tax cut. But then, less than a month after his inauguration, he appeared on national television and said that he’d never worked harder in his life, but he just couldn’t find a way to provide that middle class tax cut he’d promised.
Naturally, he claimed it was Bush’s (President George H.W. Bush) that he couldn’t give the tax cut. Does this sound familiar? In Michigan, President Bush (the present President) has been blamed for the one state recession by Governor Granholm who has presided over this one state recession for six years.
In the meantime, at the Alfred Smith Charity dinner, Michelle Obama ordered Lobster and caviar from room service showing that they are the Washington elite as has been stated over and over by Republican VP candidate Sarah Palin.
Obama won’t be giving a tax cut to anyone. He’s only using the Democrat Party playbook by playing the class warfare card. This is standard procedure for Democrats. Now he’s claiming that McCain will take away social security, and cut medicare and Medicaid. None of which is true if you read McCain’s website.
There are certain things we can count on from Democrats. They will always shoot themselves in the foot before the election when their true beliefs are shown. Obama has joined that crowd by showing his desire for socialism.
I welcome your comments.
