Obama: 80% Of American People Want Higher Taxes As Part Of Deal
Hot Air ^ | July 14, 2011 | RealClearPolitics

Posted on 07/15/2011 9:19:20 AM PDT by RobinMasters

Obama : "You have 80% of the American people who support a balanced approach. 80% of the American people support an approach that includes revenues and includes cuts. So the notion that somehow the American people aren't sold is not the problem. The problem is members of Congress are dug in ideologically."

Lying worked to get elected, but lying doesn’t solve problems. That’s what he doesn’t get.

Maybe "80%" of the 20% that still support him...holder's peeples.

He's bluffing again, call him on it.

I'd say, "Well, we'll take our chances with what the American people really want on election day...but right now, NO TAX INCREASES."

“revenues” He just can’t make himself call new taxes what they are—new taxes. Clinton tried calling them `payroll premiums.’ The Democrats never met a tax they didn’t like or couldn’t think of a euphemism to describe.

Yep. Where was bipartisanship when Reid and Pelosi locked the GOP out of the hearings on ObamaCare and told us “We have to pass the bill to find out what’s in it”?

Call him on this lie, GOP. Tell him that those 80% of which he speaks are most likely coming from his welfare constituency (you know, “Obama’s Stash” types), illegal aliens and the all but brain dead in nursing homes, or cemeteries, whatever!

You can manipulate poll questions and sampling and results to say just about any lie you want.

The bottom line is, cutting spending is the only way to deal with what is a spending problem. The runaway spending is what got us here, not too small a tax burden. That is what the TEA in Tea Party stands for - Taxed Enough Already. So, Obama, the balance IS in cutting spending. That balances the fact that already our taxes are high enough and too high. You lie when you pretend that cutting spending isn’t a balanced approach.

It’s exactly like Rush says, “I AM equal time”, when dumb callers or media/leftist critics claim he doesn’t give equal time to liberal views.

Anybody else notice that Obama repeatedly talked about “revenues”? He never used the word “tax” or “tax increase”. He referred to them as “revenues”. Is he so afraid to utter the word “tax”? What the heck is an increase in “revenue” as part of the mix, if not a tax increase of some kind?????

Maybe 80 percent of the people who pay no income taxes are in favor of increasing their taxes by some percentage.

A Modest Proposal:

In order to raise revenues impose a 3% tax on the 48% of workers who do not now pay income taxes. Any actuaries out there who could come up with the revenues generated by that move?

This is all it’s really ever been for the Dems...TAXES. All the other talk (debt ceiling, deficit reduction) is so phony. They just want to raise taxes...and that’s it.

Obama: 80% Of American People Want Higher Taxes As Part Of Deal

Dear, sweet Mister Obama. This is a WINNING stratedy! Run 2012 on your commitment to MUCH higher taxes -- and drastically reduced services, too!

I guarantee you, sir, your approval rate will shoot up to 200, maybe even 300%!

C’mon Folks you are missing the simple math of this.

I believe well over 40% of Americans pay no income tax-ALL Obama voters no doubt.

Any multiplier of zero, is of course zero.

So when your tax rate is zero, what have you got to lose by supporting higher taxes on others?

Alright, 48% of the workforce is around 60,000,000 workers. Say they average $25,000/year. A 3% tax would mean that they would pay $750/year, and that would generate 45 billion dollars. I say do it.

I agree. 80% of every fellow Communist, Socialist, Leninist, Trotskyite, Maoist, “blame America”, C3 amigo loving (Che, Chavez &Castro), Muslim Brotherhood supporting, POS who never has had a job or paid a single tax welfare scum sucking low life agrees with this Fool in Chief. The other 20% were too busy standing in line for methadone, medical marijuana, or panhandling permits. That's HIS PEOPLES.

Oops almost forgot the other two classes of vermin who agree: career politicians and trial lawyers.

Not one reporter axed him to cite a reference for his 80% overwhelming majority of Americans.

The problem is not with Obama. If my kids lie to me at every turn and I don't question them, I am the problem, not my kids.
