    Barack Obama hints at tax rises after US debt bill goes through Senate | World news | The Guardian


    US president refuses to rule out tax rises for wealthiest Americans as he prepares to sign debt limit bill into law


    Good luck with that. May be a case of "too little, too late" as far as his party and supporters go.

    He should cut defense spending and then raise taxes. In that order.

    He was hoping for default to destroy the economy and allow him to impose martial law; suspend elections. Having failed in that he will now attempt the slower method of death-by-taxation augmented, of course, by offshoring of jobs through regulation.

    None dare say he inconsistent!

    Inept, maybe.

    Destructive, no doubt.

    "Finally, the American economy throughout the 20th century has never demonstrated an ability to thrive in the absence of high military spending. The strategy used to co-opt foreign markets, an alternative to war, is ‘free trade.’"
    H.W. Brands, “American Colossus: The Triumph of American Capitalism, 1865-1900.”
