Rachel98: Have you considered the more sobering view that Obama, et al (include the rest of the Washingon crew and the FED) know exactly what they're doing? These people didn't get where they are by being idiots, anymore than Stalin, Mousilini, Hitler were. Crazy maybe, but not stupid. I would suggest that we, the people, electing liars, cheats, and theives to high office deserve to be called stupid. But "The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress." Fredrick Douglas. And people endure until near oblivion.
"And I can make a firm pledge; under my plan no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase."
    –Barack Obama, Sept. 12, 2008, Dover, New Hampshire

Barack Obama isn't the first politician to break a promise, torture the truth or outright lie to the American people. But, he certainly is among the most accomplished at it.

Obama made his no-new-taxes pledge over and over again four years ago as he campaigned.  Not only has he repeatedly and blatantly violated it, but his policies have relentlessly assaulted poor and middle-income family budgets.
