I know many will reject what I am about to say, and some will say that as I am not an American I should mind my own business, but I speak from painful experience. In the UK we have had socialistic Governments like the Obama Administration periodiacally since 1945. Everytime they lost power we discovered that they had depleted the coffers substantially, this last time (Blair/Brown) virtually bankrupted usand they pursued the very policies espoused by Obama. The real issue however is that however well intentioned these leftist politicians always, without exception damage most the very people they claim to be fighting for, the poor, the elderly, the disadvantaged. Leftist politics of this kind never work!

The simple truth is that you cannot help people that cannot help themselves and when you try all you accomplish is growth in the sector of society that does not help itself. The end result is a failed society.

Despite President Barack Obama’s promises that he would never, ever, ever, raise taxes on people making less than $250,000 year, a new analysis from the Tax Policy Center -- citing a new tobacco tax that will hit some low-income families harder than the rest -- indicates he's breaking that oath.

Upon closer examination of the budget, it's revealed Obama raises taxes on middle and low-income families again, and again, and again. 

“President Barack Obama's budget proposal would lead to significant tax increases on upper-income Americans,” the Wall Street Journal reported, “and also to moderate increases on some lower-income Americans.”
