    During the 2008 campaign Barack Obama promised not to raise taxes on anyone making less than $250,000 a year.
    He lied. Obamacare created seven new taxes on those making less than $250,000 a year.

    And, then there’s this.
    The fiscal cliff bill that passed the US Senate and is likely to pass the US House will raise taxes on those making $100,000 a year by $2,000.
    Obama needs the money.

    Can you cite the text in the bill that raises the payroll tax?

    So, if you happen to be correct, that Obama broke a tax promise by signing this bill,

    what about the 40 Republican Senators who voted for it?

    Do any of them have any tax promises on the record?

    HE LIED and that is the perception 77% of Americans have now when they hear Obama's OWN Words "I can make a firm pledge: Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes.”

    Today 77% of americans are seeing less money in their paycheck because payroll taxes have increased!
    Obama was LYING and Americans are NOW catching him regardless of how you parse it... in a bold face breaking of his pledge.. his word!
    "I pledge... NO form of tax increase"!

    Bush tax cuts were to expire in 2010 and Obama exteded them two years after Congress held the middle class hostage and taxes would have gone back and not up on every one to were there were before the cuts. Obama's tax plan lowered taxes for some and not for others. Radical Right want NO taxes at all. He should have just let Bush tax cuts expire and start all over giving the middle class a break. Bush tax cuts would have cost tax payers $1 trillion over the next decade. Bush never intended them to be permanent but to fix teh economy and that was a failure. Business took tax cut and went overseas for more tax breaks.
