“…To allay the concerns of Senate Democrats, Mr. Obama said that he could support their proposal to pay for the jobs plan by imposing a 5.6 percent surtax on individual taxpayers’ income above $1 million…”
Wow, you could knock me over with a feather. Who would have ever thought that Obama would accept a tax increase for people who make over a million dollars? Obama’s only been saying it continuously since 2009, but this fake administration is notorious for disingenuous statements.
This is the deal with that quote – the Dems said they couldn’t pass Obama’s job bill in the Senate. Harry Reid wouldn’t bring the bill to the floor, though Reid’s Republican counterpart, Mitch McConnell, said he should put the bill up for a vote, something that was ignored by Reid. Meanwhile, Obama was jetting around the country claiming the Republicans were obstructing his jobs bill. The lie was outted, so Reid had to come up with something. That something was the quote above – he said he would bring the crazy jobs bill to the floor with the inclusion of this new tax the “rich” plan.
The best part of the plan is that it’s paid for. The worst part is their math skills. They want to spend $457 billion now for cuts that will take place over ten years. We’re still selling out the future generations.
Now that Obama’s re-election campaign is well under way on Wall Street, with the drugged out Marxists fighting for a class war, this ploy will go over well. Nothing like a little class warfare. With a little luck, we’ll get to see some of Roseanne Barr’s beheadings by 2012.
