It's terrible that one can say this about an American president, but everything Obama is a lie, a distortion, is hyperbole and beyond is that's possible. He has become the most deceitful politician in American history. Taxes on the middle class serve as one of the biggest examples of deception. As he lied time and time again about taxes saying "your taxes will not go up one dime." He is a phoney person and politician bent on completely changing American culture and living standards for the middle class and poor knowing well that the wealthy will always be safe in their cocoons. Taxing the wealthy is a farce !!
