Taxman to Middle Class: 'Bend Over'

Just more of Obama's lies. Will someone say the Supreme Court is wrong in calling Obamacare a tax? So aside from taxes noted in this article, Obamacare is a tax upon the middle class, and I agree with Dr. Sowell, when he calls inflation a tax. However, inflation seems a more Democratic tax, as it affects every citizen.

if taxes will be raised on the "rich" and they will be left with less spending money the economy will sink further, unemployment will go up to 10% of even 12% and the poor will have an even harder time to find jobs. obama is not looking at the results of his policies, which have nothing to do with economics and everything to do with making america a socialist country. if he thinks that people do not change behavior as a consequence of higher taxes he has a surprise coming. he will force those who can to change their business activities either by working and producing less income or by cheating on their income, which means that he is making the american people into criminals, or he is bringing a cash economy to america, as it was in the USSR

and if there's any doubt to what you have said...you need to look no further than what Costco and many other companys are doing right now by shifting their tax liability from next year to this year.

President Barack Obama in 2008, and again during the 2012 election, promised absolutely, positively no tax hikes on the middle class. The rich, however, must pay more: "It's not me being stubborn, it's not me being partisan -- it's just a matter of math."

How does Obama intend to pay for our cradle-to-grave welfare state? Why, by charging the dastardly "millionaires and billionaires" who "can afford to pay a little bit more." No more extending the Bush-era tax rates for the rich. To do so, Obama tells us, would "cost" $700 billion -- over 10 years. So this "break"...
