Associated Press ^ | June 6, 2012 | DONOVAN SLACK

Posted on 06/06/2012 10:12:04 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

The White House is sticking by its opposition to an extension of the Bush tax cuts for wealthy Americans despite the increasing number of Democrats voicing support for it, including former President Bill Clinton.

Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters aboard Air Force One on Wednesday that President Obama will not sign an extension.

"He will not. Could I be more clear?" Carney said, according to the Associated Press.

Bush tax cuts for wealthy Americans

Can the working class wage earner not understand that when AP says 'wealthy Americans' they are talking about him?

Okay, Mr. Boehner, here’s your opening.

Pass another extension and dare Obama to veto it (and/or the Senate Dems to kill or bury it).

Not a problem. Just take the Senate and White House, then announce that it will be reinstated in January first thing, so that people don’t freak out in December when it expires. Then use it as part of the budget so it is not susceptible to a filibuster (or dump the filibuster in Senate rules altogether, but that is another issue). Done.

Not unless someone tells them the truth, which the news media will never do.

It's going to be up to the GOP to let people know that if they are currently in the bottom 10% tax bracket, as of January 1, 2013, their income taxes are going to increase by at least 50%, and by more than that if they are married and have children living in the household.

And also - several million people who are currently not paying any income tax are going to be added back onto the tax rolls.

Look for Obama to be now “one and DONE” with that decision.

Also this is slapping the face of a President before him, Bill Clinton who made the idea known.

“He will not. Could I be more clear?”

Obama is resigned to the fact that he is going to lose, now he is pandering to his barking moonbat base to keep his loss margin from setting a record as the highest in history.

Why are these called the “Bush tax cuts”? The Bush legislation EXPIRED. Signing an extension makes them NEW LEGISLATION and thus the “Obama tax cuts”.

After he sees how well this benefits the Romney campaign, he’ll change his tune....or at least the words...

Romney could enhance his campaign by emphasizing the importance of a Republican Sentate, to implement reversals of Obama tyranny.

Good. We are not going to have much support on cutting spending until EVERY American is paying federal taxes.

If I had my way, federal income tax would be a flat rate, starting with the first dollar, like SS taxes are.

Agreed - a low, flat rate would be preferable, along with a larger taxpayer base and elimination of the wasteful, economically-distorting abomination that our tax code has become. Plus, by giving more people “skin in the game” - you’d naturally create a much larger constituency for limited government spending.

NEVER raise taxes in an election year. Any professional politician knows that. Obama is just a big-eared skinny little mooselimb Kenyan kid that had major support from others to get him elected. As President, though, he can sink his own boat and there is nothing his backers can do about it.

The ONLY possible reason he can be ruling so contrary to the will of the people is because he knows that the November election is a mere formality, because the vote-counting apparatus (a wholly-owned Soros subsidiary) has been compromised and the fix is in.

By allowing the 2003 tax cuts to retire, President “Present” will be increasing the bottom rate from 10% to 15% and the 20% bracket to 25%.

Raising the 10% bracket to 15% represents what percentage of increase? Hint: The correct answer is NOT 5%.

Raising the 20% bracket to 25% represents what percentage of increase? Hint: The correct answer, again, is NOT 5%.

Finally, raising the 35% bracket to 39% represents what percentage of increase: Hint: The correct answer is NOT 4%.

Extra credit question: People in which tax bracket will see the largest percentage of increase in their taxes?

Extra extra credit question: People in which tax bracket will see the smallest percentage of increase in their taxes?

To those moving from the 35% to the 39% tax bracket...that’s roughly an 11% increase in taxes.

From 20% to 25%...that’s a full-blown 25% increase in taxes.

To those moving from the 10% bracket to 15%, their taxes will be increased by a whopping 50%.

So the low-income people get their taxes raised even more when seen as a percentage. And the rich folks lose a higher magnitude of money,but the percentage compared to what they already make is lower.

You gotta wonder if Obama is really serious about running for reelection. He’s giving Romney so many gift wrapped presents in the form of his behavior, demeanor and lack of work ethic. Romney needs only show is birth certificate, college records, success in business, the Olympics and as governor. Obama is so much out of his league. Now, stepping back, one has to remember that there are a lot of ignorant, closed minded people who would vote for Obama even if Obama didn’t care one iota about them... which, by the way, he does not care about anybody period!

So ‘automatic’ tax increases are coming. Great.

I wonder if anyone is going to lift a finger to ‘fix’ the AMT also.

It expires at the end of this year and without a new ‘patch’ families making around $150K will get hit ‘automatically’.

And lets not forget the failure of the ‘super committee’ and the associated ‘automatic’ cuts and mayhem that will create.

We need to be wary when congress uses words like ‘automatic’ or ‘expiring’.
