Skip to comments.55% Oppose Tax Hike In Debt Ceiling Deal (So much for Hussein's 80%)
Posted on 07/16/2011 11:29:47 AM PDT by Recovering_Democrat
As the Beltway politicians try to figure out how they will raise the debt ceiling and for how long, most voters oppose including tax hikes in the deal.
Just 34% think a tax hike should be included in any legislation to raise the debt ceiling...55% disagree and say it should not.
Fifty-eight percent (58%) of Democrats want a tax hike...82% of Republicans do not. Among [Independents], 35% favor a tax hike and 51% are opposed.

Now this, if accurate, is amazing. 42% of Democrats are OPPOSED to a tax hike?
Hussein is pissing off his own party.
Gasp! You mean that the president lied? I’m shocked, shocked I tell you! </sarc>
He doesn’t “lie” — he merely makes up his own information as convenient.
It’s the post-modern multi-cultural Obamanation approach to governance....
You mean ,That African Mugabe JR LIED to the Whites!!!
And 49% of the people, who pay NO taxes, are probably in favor of a tax hike. When does the tax war start?
[ Fifty-eight percent (58%) of Democrats want a tax hike... ]
BUT 42% of democrats did not join the republicans.. for spending cuts..
They had rather ignore the whole situation..
UNLESS the whole sampling is a hoax.. or flawed..
Home boy wasn’t so worried about polls during the healthcare reaming.
So... what's stopping them from mailing a check to Timmy "Hermey the Elf" Geithner right now ??
Weather it’s world leaders, dumb-o-crats, American voter or his own party consultations the bottom line is that it MUST ALWAYS BE ABOUT HIM AND WHATEVER HE WANTS, AND THOSE YOU ARE NOT ON BOARD GO UNDER THE BUS.
Why anyone even listens to mac,the crybaby liar, daddy is beyond me, each and every one he utters is just another lie.
They want a tax hike on you, so their EITC can increase again.
Yep, one more lie to add to the list. I hope the GOP starts making campaign spots of all his lies and plays them lomg and loud.
What poll was Obama citing, if any? And how was the question phrased? Possibly “Would you rather have tax hikes or have to support Grandma and Grandpa for the rest of their lives?”
Government spending has exploded under nObama.
Government revenue has imploded under nObama due to the crushing impact of his policies on business.
For 2011 the deficit is 258% higher than the deficit in 2008, and the deficit ALONE is larger than BOTH CORPORATE AND INDIVIDUAL INCOME TAX COLLECTED IN 2008 !!! IS THAT INSANE OR WHAT ?
And the details are here:

BamBam made a huge mistake on Friday with this asinine assertion - call all congressional offices on Monday - especially RATS - and raise Hell.
Senate and House. Local and DC offices. Make them feel the heat.
I saw where Obama got his 80% figure from, I believe it was a Gallop poll that asked if you believed that the deficit should be handled entirely with spending cuts, no “increases of revenue” at all and about 20% of respondents said yes to that. Then the next answer was almost entirely with spending cuts but with some new revenue, next evenly split between the two, then mostly with tax increases and finally with no cuts and all tax increases.
Obama took all the rest that didn’t answer with no taxes and bunched them together to get his “80% of Americans favor raising taxes” quote he used.
There is no such thing as people who do not pay taxes.
Re: Fifty-eight percent (58%) of Democrats want a tax hike—
58% of Rats don’t pay income tax.
Lets see. 58% dems want hike plus 18% GOP want hike plus 35% independents want hike that’s 111% want a tax increase. Obama’s number was low.
Fifty-eight percent (58%) of Democrats want a tax hike
This little nugget tells you all you need to know. It is the 49% of people who pay no taxes (of course they are Dems).
Once again, Democrat politicians are insisting on something that isn’t popular. See also, Obamacare, illegal immigration, etc. etc.
The President pulls his numbers out of his posterior.
The Lying piece of SHI* in the WH said 80%.
So lets make him remember how he jumped the shark with this, the all time mother of all 0bama Lies (so far).
If GHW Bush’s “read my lips” cost him his reelection then this must become 0bama’s Waterloo.
This man’s strategy from day 1 was to architect exactly this outcome. Where he would gratuitously overspend, enact the largest entitlement Program in History, and use all of this to pull the trigger on a tax increase SO LARGE that it would transform this country into the Entitlement Utopia of a Socialist Republic.
But you have to give it to the Left because since Reagan cleaned their clocks they have LEARNED.
In the past they would Tax and Spend, now they do it the other way around and this makes their move to Socialism unstoppable.
They now have a gun to the head of America and look happy to pull the trigger, IF they are not allowed their desire to spend and tax their way to Socialism.
Barely 50% of Rats pay any tax at all.
My muslim faith...er....... my Christian faith...Obama 2008
You dont raise taxes in a recession....Obama 2009
I cannot guarantee that those checks (social security and military) go out on August 3rd if we haven't resolved this issue...... Obama July 2011
Don't call my bluff, Eric (so he WAS bluffing afterall)....Obama July 2011
80% of Americans want higher taxes....Obama July 2011
If 1 million of us stood our ground on Apr 15th and refused to file and send the bastards any more money, that would send a message to the thieves that we aren't going to comply anymore.
What are they gonna do throw 1 million of us in jail? Besides, if we could pull that off, then there would be a groundswell of support and we could very well take the whole friggin system down.
Even Clinton or any of the other demobulbs didn’t lie so much - it’s hard to listen too.
What about this LIE (no taxes on people making less than 25k).
And see how he makes fun of how people would call him a “tax and spend” liberal in this one...
And NOW, as we sit with HIM holding a loaded gun to our heads today...he tells us we its time to EAT our Peas!!!!!
F’ me, how the public has such a short memory.
Well at least 48% of them least.
I meant 250K
I’ve said it before. I love that picture!
Funny how he touted that 80% of the ‘Merican Peepl stuff when in the prior news conference he said we were all too stoopid to understand what was going on and to leave it to the “professionals”
Those wanting a a tax hike are the freeloading maggots who don’t pay taxes.
I can’t think of any phrase more “worthy” than “Liar In Chief.” Unless it could be “TOTAL LOSER!”
Federal income tax, plus many get money back.
Wait just a minute! 55 + 80, that’s only 135% of the 200%, that O.J. Simpson asserted he was innocent of. All’s fine, what do the remaining 65% think? (They might have been busy watching the Anthony trial and being on the jury.)
Does this mean congressional Republicans will throw out their surrender (no cut) plan and demand that spending cuts be in the extension bill? If they got Obama to sign that they would do well in 2012. It only counts if you win not surrender.
Child Marxist-in Chief?
” It only counts if you win not surrender”
Obama is the one who is desperate. The stuid Republicans can demand whatever they want.

Obama Lied and Old people Died...
They seem close to demanding that he accept their surrender. I dont see Obama telling the public he has a surrender pan like you-know-who did.
Check out tomorrow's shows to see if Republicans have inproved their messaging.
Obama’s mathamatics is a perfect display of his tiny useless brain!
You are right the problem is 48% pay no federal income taxes.
I would say that 80-90% of the support for higher taxes comes from this segment.
So far the index of stupidity -the election of Obama - is so high his remark is justified. How much dumber can you get?
” Check out tomorrow’s shows to see if Republicans have inproved their messaging. “
I never watch any of them. That’s why we pay you the big bucks!
