State-Controlled Businessweek ^ | By Comrade Heidi Przybyla and Comrade John McCormick

The Obama administration cut taxes for middle-class Americans, expects to make a profit on the hundreds of billions of dollars spent to rescue Wall Street banks and has overseen an economy that has grown for the past five quarters.

Most voters don’t believe it.

OF COURSE WE DO NOT BELIEVE IT! Because IT'S NOT TRUE!

Taxes HAVE gone up.

The economy IS shrinking.

The government SAYS the money from the Obama TARP Takeover is coming back. I don't buy it for a SECOND!

SOCIALISM DOES NOT WORK! STOP THE STALINISM!

The same rag that said that businesses dont like the Tea Party.

I guess if your business is getting bailouts from D.C., I would think they wouldn’t like them too much either.

The Obama administration has cut taxes -- largely for the middle class -- by $240 billion since taking office on Jan. 20, 2009. A program aimed at families earning less than $150,000 that was contained in the stimulus package lowered the burden for 95 percent of working Americans by $116 billion, or about $400 per year for individuals and $800 for married couples. Other measures include breaks for college education, moderate- income families and the unemployed and incentives to promote renewable energy.

Let me first say that any site that presents "news" but does not allow comments from readers is beyond suspect nowadays.

As to this press release presented as an objective news report, notice the purposeful ambiguity of the reputed facts in an article decrying ambiguity. "A program...." starts one claim and yet somehow they don't find the time to expand the facts to include naming the program and it's magical tax break.

Other measures include breaks for college education, moderate- income families and the unemployed and incentives to promote renewable energy.

These, of course, are not tax breaks but giveaways that are shouldered by non-qualifying taxpayers.

This kind of shoddy, blatantly biased reporting in a day and age where the length of articles are essentially unlimited is quickly coming to an end. Lower denominator articles that create more questions than provide answers and clearly regurgitate basic bullet points of the left are becoming as obvious as the Naked Emperor. To a certain extent, reason will prevail.

I believe it, since most voters don't know that DEMOCRATS were in control on congress since 2006, and thus were the ones driving the car into the ditch Obama likes to talk about.

The idea of a Profit from this is idiotic. Look at the huge damage this bank mess has done to the economy, the people that are unemployed, the destroyed tax base, lost value in stocks and property and these dopes talk about the entire disaster as if it were a brilliant money making scheme.

Let’s talk ‘welfare reform’...Corporate welfare reform.
Todays subsidy becomes tomorrow’s ‘loophole’.
They bragged about reducing the deficit to $1.294T!!! That’s debt that will have to be paid back by higher taxes in the future

They would first have to know what "GDP" means.
