That caption should read, "Obama never worked at a REAL job."

Any job for which you get paid is a real job. Some jobs are easier than others, for example being a paid consultant for Fox news, or a reality tv star.

No, a real job is one that results in a product or service which can be sold to a willing purchaser. The only job Obama has ever had is one in which the purchaser (taxpayer) is forced to pay. Apparently you are one of those who never had a real job.

Last week, the progressive think tank Center for American Progress (CAP) released their tax reform plan [pdf], supported by prominent left-wing budgeters and economists like Robert Rubin and Lawrence Summers. The net effect of this tax reform plan is a massive tax hike on "the rich" in order to fall far, far short of the revenue necessary to eliminate America's deficit.

The CAP plan would eliminate deductions, close loopholes raise rates, implement new taxes, increase sales taxes, create new taxes... basically every form of a tax hike you can think of, all implemented on households with income above...
