No, they voted for free contraception, amnesty for illegal aliens, and subsidized abortion.
No, half of all Americans didn’t vote. Of the half that voted, half voted for free stuff.
Hmm, let that bum dig his own grave. The more he says things like this, the more he’ll have to scramble for excuses when things come crashing down.
Maybe some of them didn’t think that was what they voted for, but mindless as they were, that is exactly what they voted for.
Americans voted for MORE TAXES ON DEMOCRATS.
“Next to inflation, majority rule is the most ingenious scheme ever contrived by government. Most people have never dared to question the basic morality or logic in the assumption that the majority should have power over the minority. A majority of the people in the South once believed in black slavery. Did that make it moral? A lynch mob is majority rule stripped of its fancy trappings and its facade of respectability. In a community where homosexuals outnumber heterosexuals, should the majority have the right to outlaw sex between married partners of the opposite sex? In a community where atheists outnumber non- atheists, should the majority have the right to outlaw the practice of religion? ... a dictatorship allows only a small number of people to interfere with the rights of others, a democracy makes it possible for great numbers of people to impose their will on others — through the force of government. Is an act of aggression more right if carried out by the majority than by a dictator? Since approximately half the eligible voters vote this means that approximately 75% of the people are ruled by 25% of the people.”
No, the Hispanics voted for government hand-outs. Single women voted for free contraceptives and abortion drugs. Blacks voted for ObamaPhones and food stamps. College kids voted to make themselves feel important. University professors voted to turn this country into a Socialist country like Europe has.
So, no, there was no mandate to raise taxes, jug ears.
But, a P.S. - every American will suffer from higher taxation, higher gas prices, a weaker economy, few jobs available, a subdued and ineffective military - and we’ll all soon see moves to begin ‘one world government.’
Yeah, but not us evil whiteys. We voted for jobs.
Dig this. People who pay no taxes voted to raise other people’s taxes.
I don’t consider 200K rich or 250K for a family rich you may be more well of than others but wealthy no and besides
that it is not the governments money.
I say let him have his taxes. Let them have everything they want. It’ll all come back to haunt them soon enough when their own constituents take violently to the streets just as they’re doing in Greece now.
Well then just raise the ones who voted for a tax increase... never mind
They are already getting tax increases.
Taxes are due to go up in January when the Bush cuts expire.
since when, in this country, did a majority vote get to decide how much of someone else’s wealth to confiscate? Have we forgotten about individual sovereignty and private property? Quite frankly, 99% of the people have no say in how much taxes the 1% pay, no say whatsoever... it’s call theft where I grew up.
When my taxes go up, my spending and investing gets cut - it’s that simple - 0bama can try to have a recovery without me.
Begin by making sure whatever tax is implemented will make sure that rich people like Buffet has to pay. Under the Buffet rule, and/or letting the Bush tax cuts for individuals expire, Buffet won't be paying more.
Buffet doesn't make a million dollars in income. Last I looked he only made 100 thousand dollars salary from his company, and around 75,000 for director fees. This would make him exempt from the taxes Obama proposes as paying his fair share.
So Obama is letting the billionaire skate while people making only $200,000 are asked to pay the billionaire's fair share, and almost half of Americans don't pay income taxes, and some get more taxes back than they pay in.
Somehow, I don't think Americans would consider that fair if they understood it.
If Obama really wants to get money from those rascally rich people, he could implement a tax on their net worth as well as a tax on their tax-dodge foundations.
If Obama wants the rich to pay more, then his proposals are dumb as a box of rocks. So he's either stupid or has some other goal.
Maybe we should all write Letters to the Editor in all our news papers and expose this fraudulent proposal.
Even in victory the president has to bring out the class warfare card. I’m so tired of this. Overspending put us where we are today and not the wealthy getting tax breaks. I’m so frustrated that too many of our fellow citizens resent wealthy and successful people.
he’s a lying scumbag...yeah I said it, scumbag
