Obama’s “Read My Lips” moment. Per Fox, Obama may be about to institute national sales tax to pay for his programs.

Is this a “read my lips” moment? Did bammy lie? Remember, 75% of independents and 22% of dems voted for Brown. How much longer will Hillary remain as SOS? Nice gift to all those dems that have to go home and run for re-election. Now they have to explain why taxing people at higher rates is good for them. This is a real winner for a party. Damn, people keep saying bammy is real intelligent and a natural politician, but I have been unable to detect these traits in the man-boy.

Expect more middle class outrage and expect more accusations of racism. How dare we criticize the black prince of the Democrat party. Chrissy and his ilk will cry racism but more and more people will ignore these boys crying wolf

I’m not shocked at all that he is going to tax the middle class, but I am a little surprised he would come out and say it. It seems more his style to institute a tax and watch as the media doesn’t call him on it.

Obama plans on letting the Bush tax cuts expire this year.

I've said for a long time, that won't be enough to keep the socialist happy.

No one saw the sign? +/-

It's now a negative tax cut.

The more we get him and other dems on record in support of tax increases, the better next November.

GWH Bush learned about how much folks like the tax promise to be broken.

Has a politician ever so openly flaunted his corruption, dishonesty and duplicity? Could it be because he’s so secure in the knowledge that the loyalty of the MSM has no limit? Does he really believe no one is going to call him on this crap?

Nancy is in her own universe. A more detached paranoid you could not find, unless we are talking about bammy. My understanding of a 51 vote majority is that it only requires 51 votes to overturn it. Think this would be very easy to do by 2012. Since none of the benefits of the plan are delivered for five years but the costs are billed in year one, don’t see how it ever ramps up to a working model.
