Read My Lips … Barack Obama Says He is “agnostic” About Raising Taxes on Households Making Less than $250,000


Read my lips … don’t believe any thing I say.

Candidate Barack Hussein Obama said it over and over and over again during the Presidential election of 2008. Obama stated that he would not raise any form of taxes on any family making less than $250,000.

Let me be absolutely clear, if you are a family making less than $250,000 a year you will not see your taxes go up.

Much like the promises of transparency of televising the health care reform debate on C-SPAN, so go’s the promise of no taxes on the middle class. Hey America, has that “hopee, changee” thing work out for ya?

You were warned during the election that Obama’s pledge on not raising taxes on any family making below $250K was lip service. Suddenly all things are on the table as opposed to pandering for votes. As Michelle Malkin states, Read my lips, you can’t believe any thing that passes the.”

Barack Obama told reporters that he was “agnostic”

President Barack Obama said he is “agnostic” about raising taxes on households making less than $250,000 as part of a broad effort to rein in the budget deficit.

Obama, in a Feb. 9 Oval Office interview, said that a presidential commission on the budget needs to consider all options for reducing the deficit, including tax increases and cuts in spending on entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare.

“The whole point of it is to make sure that all ideas are on the table,” the president said in the interview with Bloomberg BusinessWeek, which will appear on newsstands Friday. “So what I want to do is to be completely agnostic, in terms of solutions.”

However, the reality is Obama has already raised taxes on the middle class.

      YOU LIE! Why am I bringing home less money each pay period now than I was in 2009? Why did my Federal Income Tax go up when my pay did not increase?

      I do not make $250,000.00 a year but yet I’m still being taxed to death. Taxes on groceries have gone up, taxes on food has gone up, they increased taxes on cigarettes (I don’t smoke), they are increasing taxes on soft drinks. Taxes are being increased but salaries aren’t.

      This administration is a joke. Nothing but liars & cheats. Power hungry wolves. Their goal is to make every one of us dependent on the government.

      Stay the hell out of our lives.

      What a pathetic piece of junk….people on Social Security never got a raise for the year 2010, many people have counted on that….now he wants to make cuts in the program along with Medicare…..people that retired many years ago are not getting very much to live on now…I hate him….he is mass destruction….we should make him eat his lies and hold him accountable for his statements….what an a~~hole…he is destroying our country and doesn’t give a sh~~ about our elderly people….what a crime!!! All he does is take vacations on our ATM dollars…Medicare is not free, you pay $96.00 for Medicare B, which you need, you now pay another $40.00 for some prescription drugs, which is your burden to pay the rest, a supplemental insurance costs about $140.00 per month, that is about $270.00 a month, what is wrong with this bas~~~~!!!!!Now he wants to make cuts…..!!!!! Stop pointing your 8 inch finger at me and shut up your blabbering mouth and do the the job that you were hired to do….!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SICK, SICK, SICK OF YOU…..!!!!

      SICK, SICK

      I would like to suggest that Congress pass a law requiring the President to watch videos of his campaign speeches at least once a month. He has obviously forgotten the statements and promises he read to us from his teleprompter – one wonders if he had any idea of what he was saying or if he just went through the process like a court reporter, writing (or in his case, reading) the words but never really hearing them.
      He may or may not prove to be the worst president we have ever had, but he will undoubtedly prove to be the greatest disappointment.

      [...] he said during the campaign that are believable. Whether it be the words from Obama’s lips on taxes increases for those making under $250K, transparency of health care debates,  bipartisanship, stimulus bills creating or saving jobs [...]
