President Says Recent Tax Hike “Not Nearly Enough”
http://www.angelfire.com/ak2/intelligencerreport/rightwing226.html ^

Posted on 01/05/2013 8:29:03 AM PST by navysealdad

While admitting to being pleased and proud of the tax increases he was able to force Republicans to accept, President Obama lamented that “it is but a small positive step in the right direction.”

The President argued that “it should be self evident that the rich still fall far short of paying their fair share. There are many private citizens who live more lavishly than the President of their country. The inequity of this is stark and, quite frankly, shameful. Not even the wealthiest owner of the biggest business has as big a burden as the President of America has. The idea that such a person should have more than

Mr. President, if this tax hike is not enough, what would be better? What do you want?

“””Needs “satire” in the title.”””

Yup, you have to go to the link to see the statement at the end since this satire piece is so close to reality.

This HAS to be satire. Not even that idiot Obama is stupid enough to go on record with such self-righteous, moronic ranting.

It’s hard to read about the insanity from the left. My eyes glaze over & my head wants to explode from the combination of resistance & outrage. I want to get away from it as much as I want to confront it.

To be fair, though, *is* this really satire? I know it’s intended to be, but doesn’t 0bama say in one of his books (probably Dreams From My Father- I didn’t read those, either) that taxes should be something like 95% & the government “provides everything that people need” (as if they should be the ones to decide what people need)?
We know enough to realize that nothing he (or the democrats) would want to impose on us seems far-fetched. He is that antithetical to the American way of life.
Democracy is tyranny. That is no joke.

I agree, the recent election showed there were not enough sane voters in this country either, so what is Barry’s solution to that one...decrease the voter base or increase the knowledge of how bad things are financially in this country due to his policies.

“it should be self evident that the rich still fall far short of paying their fair share”

This guy is like a broken record with this, it never ends.

“The rich must pay their fair share...The rich must pay their fair share...The rich must pay their fair share...The rich must pay their fair share...The rich must pay their fair share...”

They are already paying most of the taxes, so what is his definition of fair? Pay ALL the taxes? Pay 100%? Go ahead being that most of his fundraising fans are Hollywood millionaires. Let Sarah Jessica Horseface, George Clooney, Jay-Z, Beyonce, and all the rest of these idiots who held fundraisers for him work for ZERO. We can even set up direct deposit into the US Treasury. Clooney can make a movie for $20 million and just have all that money directly deposited into the treasury. No need to deal with it or even think about it. Just make movies and live in a homeless shelter.

C’mon, that’s kinda dirty to post satire without saying satire, ‘specially when it’s so believable as this.

One of my employees when he received his check yesterday was shocked he took home less money....I happened to be there when he opened his check... I did in fact tell him before hand his taxes are going up... But I don’t think he believed me...

He happens to be black but not the moon bat liberal type... Good guy...

I explained to him all these “rich guys” Obama and company keep yapping about not paying their fair share....And nobody but the 2 % highest earners will pay more....they lied to you...

They forgot to tell you are a a rich guy too...

He posted a Semmens piece from another site so Semmens did not appear in the thread title. Thought it was semmens but had tolook for the name on the web page.

Yesterday was the day of the first paycheck of the year where I work. I haven’t said so many “I told you so!” and “Betcha didn’t know you’re one of ‘The Rich!’”

Everybody thought, from their small amount of watching the News, things got fixed with the Congressional cave-in on 1/1. I’d been telling them, No, you have a lot of tax increases coming your way regardless of what happens with this stupid cliff thing. They were all watching what the magician was watching, failing to see what he was doing with his other hand.

They are starting to listen to me now. But it won’t last...a new season of American Idol starts soon, then it’s back to beddy-by time.

With this admin, it will never be enough. They’re lining their pockets and aiding our enemies with our own tax dollars.

Really? I challenge anyone to name a single private citizen that can dial-up a 747 to fly them on vacation to Hawaii twice in two weeks.

Obama is the worst form of a lying sack of sh*t I can think of.
