    Once again Obama has shown his plan all along. Raise taxes.

    He wants to remove home interest payments as a deduction.

    Trust me, this will include everyone, not just those who make over $200k.

    Also, he says he wants to remove charitable contributions as well.

    Folks, this isn't all he plans to do. He's just telling us the part he thinks we want to hear.

    I guess you can drop all the rhetoric over how he's cut taxes now. It was all smoke and mirrors anyway.

    Today was his first campaign speech for the 2012 run, those terrible people who have succeeded, no mention of his GE buddy....

    Obama, the grand manipulator, divide and conquer....

    For someone who is supposed to be so smart, you would think he could come up with a new angle....

    God help us if he does win re-election.....

    Bullshit! I pay enough freaking taxes. The government is so f'd up nobody is ever going to fix it. I already am doing more with less. The government and the people with hand outs to the government should do the SAME! It is disgusting.

    Y'know, if he doesn't watch it, Democrats may become known as the party of tax-and-spend....

    It has never been about Taxes. It's about Government spending more than they ever had. Punishing the Taxpayers for Government malfeasance is not the answer. I just don't get how so many agree with blaming Taxpayers for Government fucking everything up. It's not the Taxpayers' fault. It's the Government's fault. The more they raise Taxes,the more money they spend. So raising Taxes just isn't the answer. It's all just Community Organizer Class Warfare stuff. Community Organizers thrive on pitting Americans against Americans. It's just a distraction and a diversion. The real problem is with the Government. It's not with the Taxpayers.

    The emphasis on shared sacrifice and raising taxes is just code for this administration is not serious about curbing gov't expenditures.

    I'm all for dropping the mortgage deduction, and charitable deductions as well. But lower the over-all tax rate after that.

    I can see it now. The government will see this new tax revenue as a windfall and spend the shit on something other than intended. Typical!
