Barack Obama said in his Saturday radio address that the rich should pay more in taxes. No one can say that he did not campaign on such a class-warfare issue. Although, I hardly believe that Obama has a mandate to raise taxes on the rich seeing that the American public voted for the status quo in sending back to Washington DC more gridlock with a Democrat President a Democrat Senate and Republican House. Also, Obama received far fewer votes than he did in 2008 and won reelection by a smaller amoint in 2018 than 2008.
President Barack Obama says he won’t accept a plan to avert the so-called fiscal cliff that doesn’t ask the wealthy to pay more in taxes. In Saturday’s radio and Internet address, Obama says the election showed support for his “balanced” approach and Congress can provide certainty by extending tax cuts for middle-class families.
The White House says Obama would veto any legislation extending tax cuts for families making $250,000 or more. Obama is expected to meet with congressional leaders next week.
For all of those people who think the rich should pay more taxes so that they can get “stuff”. I wonder how they are going to feel when Obama comes after them for raising taxes. For all those sheeple that voted for Obama knowing that he campaigned on raising taxes, wait until you lose something precious to you do to your vote, like you job.
