    Obama Presser: Give Me My Tax Hikes Right Now, Before Anything Else, As a Show of Good Faith​

    He just finished speaking.

    I can’t believe we have to listen to this guy for another four years.

    I can’t believe it. I really can’t. I’m still processing this– this happened.

    Another four miserable, impoverished years.

    Here’s an idea. I don’t know if this is a good idea. I imagine some will be pretty angry about it.

    8 of the 10 wealthiest counties in the country voted for Obama, and thus higher taxes.


    Here’s my compromise solution. Let’s agree to raise taxes on income greater than, say, $600,000 per year. Or better yet– $1,000,000 year, which is what Joe Biden claimed their policy was in a debate.

    But we’ll insist that investment income rates be lowered.

    Why? Because Hollywood-types and other celebrities (rappers, athletes, Bruce Springsteen) make a lot in income.

    They want their income taxed at higher rates? Fine. You got it.

    I know a lot of “innocent” Republicans will be trapped by this. That’s why I don’t know if it’s a good idea. But it seems likely to me we will lose (Obama doesn’t mind if he crashes the US economy by taking us over the cliff; he’ll get a poll boost out of it).

    So punish those who voted for this. It’s what they wanted; give it to them.
