Americans voted to raise someone else’s taxes. The jokes is on them, many people that earn $250,000 a year and over file their business on their personal taxes. When you raise their taxes they raise the cost of goods and services and pass this rise in the cost of doing business on to the consumer. They won’t be paying for this tax hike, those that voted for it will.

Obama: Americans voted for tax hikes on rich

Actually, Obama won the election by a margin of 50-48.

And, if I'm not mistaken, the Republicans won the House by a popular vote margin of 53-47.

Thus, it can be effectively argued that, in fact, Americans did NOT vote for "tax hikes on the rich".

"Tax the rich" is plank #2.

The Ten Planks of Karl Marx's Communist Manifesto
(and How Statists Implement Them)

  1. Abolition of private property rights (via high property taxes, restrictive zoning laws, "fair housing" edicts, environmental and "wetlands" regulations, UN Agenda 21, etc.)

  2. Institution of a heavily graduated income tax (by calling it "taxing the rich")

  3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance (through a confiscatory estate tax on "the rich")

  4. Confiscation of the property of enemies of the state (through lawless application of asset forfeiture and eminent domain)

  5. Centralization of credit into the hands of the state (Federal Reserve, Federal Trade Commission, TARP, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, federal takeover of student loans, etc.)

  6. Centralization of the means of communication and transportation into the hands of the state (FCC, DOT, FEMA, NTSB, FAA, etc.).

  7. Consolidation and subjugation of all major industries to central government control (FDA, EPA, OSHA, ICC, HUD, NLRB, EEOC, DOE, TSA etc.)

  8. Mandatory labor union membership (teachers and other public-sector unions, planned unionization of 21-million Obamacare health care workers, automatic withholding of forced union dues, "card check," etc.)

  9. Equitable redistribution of all wealth (TANF, SSI, EITC, SNAP, etc.)

  10. Free public education (and food and health care and cell phones and Internet access, etc.)

FU Obama. The Congress makes the laws. They reflect the will of the people. In fact, the House, as our founders intended, most closely represents the will the people. Obama thinks he is a dictator.

Obama said he was open to compromise with Republicans—but that any final deal needed to raise taxes on the richest Americans.

“This was a central question during the election,” the president said in brief remarks in the East Room of the White House.

I’ll comment.
This is “I won.” the sequel, and half the country is ready to secede.
The best half.

That’s strange - out here in AZ I never saw that on the ballot. IN fact just the opposite occurred - the American citizens kept the Government divided so as to constrain the spendthrift ZERO. No one said anything about supporting TAXES - the person in the WH is clearly delusional.

“It was debated over and over again, and on Tuesday night we found out that a majority of Americans agree with my approach.”

I wonder if this ahole ever had an independent thought in his whole miserable life. The majority of the country voted to raise taxes on the rich...wow, there is a surprise. Frankly, I would give him what he wants except i would raise the rates to confiscatory levels. Let’s kill this place quickly. You want 40%, gee, I an raise your 40 to 95 easily. Meanwhile, the majority of voters in some states want to secede. Does that mean they get their way too, I think it should. You can have your 95% tax rates on the rich, free bc pills, obama phones and the like. We will just leave, have a flat tax and few bennies and you can GFYs.

Time for some anarchy followed by a coup. I think the choice may be between a benevolent right wing dictatorship that allows a reasonable amount of capitalism vs a tyrannical leftist dictatorship. One of the beneficial side effects of a right wing dictatorship might be an improvement in the gene pool.
I’m tired of playing nice.

The rich mostly voted for him...so, give them what they want. The economy is wrecked, anyway. Get rid of their foundation loopholes, too. Go at ‘em.

He's right.

They were given a clear choice in the final week of the election: "Revenge" or "Love of Country". They chose revenge.

Revenge against "the man". Revenge against the rich. Revenge against everybody that has won life's lottery and isn't sharing with them. It's the French Revolution all over again, only this time it's being instigated by the "crown".

let’s see:

(1) Obama lost more votes from 2008 than Romney did compared to McCain in 2008; that low turn out for him was as much a no-confidence vote on him as anything else;

(2) Congress is supposed to control the federal government’s purse strings, not the president;

(3) all spending and tax bills are supposed to start out in the House of Representatives;

(4) the entire House of Representatives was up for a vote, and the GOP retains its majority there;

so, one could say the only “mandate” from the electorate was for a compromise with the House Obama has not been willing to make, on anything at any time;

but, there is no evidence in the vote results of any mandate for higher taxes on anyone.

Really?

Cause last time I check Republicans won the House.

And that’s where the tax laws start.

Now I’m sure the House is going to give you everything you want, but they shouldn’t.

and yet he is remarkably quiet about the notion of paying taxes on his billion dollar OFAY fund ,,,

this moron doesn’t seem to realize that wealthy earners, and all businesses, don’t pay taxes, they incur costs, which are passed along to the consumer. but it makes good theater I guess.

doubt this mouth breather ever got a ‘C’ or higher in any math/science class.
