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.
LOL - anything goes now, anything whatsoever the bastard wants to do!
