    Obama said:
    "I reject the idea that asking a hedge fund manager to pay the same tax rate as a plumber or a teacher is class warfare."

    A plumber making an average of $50,000 paid 5.6% of income in taxes!
    A teacher making an average of $52,000 paid 9.2% of income in taxes!
    Obama PAID on his $1.7 million income 26%!

    So why did Obama LIE when HE KNOWS he paid more then plumber or teacher?


    Proof? I am asking all of you READ the REALITY and NOT the RHETORIC!

    Directly from the IRS tax analysis..
    Source::http://www.irs.gov/taxstats/indtaxstats/article/0,,id=96981,00.html#_grp1

    Plumbers average $50,000 a year and the average taxes PAID owed by
    11 million returns was $2,832 a TAXABLE RATE OF 5.6%
    Teachers ave. $54,330 and paid average tax of $4,826 or 9.2%

    Obama's 2010 Tax return
    Obama's Adjusted gross income $1,728,096
    Tax LOOPHOLE DEDUCTIONS - Donations 245,075 14.18% of his income.
    Federal taxes paid 453,770 26.26% of gross income

    OBAMA TAX payment shows HE paid like the WALL STREET HEDGE fund mgrs nearly 3 times what teachers and near 5 times the taxes of plumbers!

    So why the LIES Obama? Your own TAXES show you are lying!!!

    Please come back to us when you learn the difference between income taxes and taxes in general (the latter includes payroll, state, local, sales, etc).

    Why is it whenever Conservatives discuss taxes, they are only capable of discussing federal income taxes while ignoring all other taxes? Yes, the wealthy pay the vast majority of federal income taxes. However, they pay much less when it comes to all other taxes compared to the average US worker. When it comes to state taxes, the wealthy pay much less than everyone else. Despite what you may think, federal income taxes are only a small portion of all taxes collected in the US.

    And you go to the OFFICIAL spreadsheet of TAXES PAID by 140 million RETURNS!
    Did Obama specify ANY other taxes? NOPE!
    That's what OBAMA was whining about!
    PROVE you stupid statement ""wealthy pay much less when it comes to all..."!

    BUT you don't even think that far!
    Tell me how much property taxes do you think the wealthy pay versus the NON-WEALTHY!

    But again.. I don't know why waste time on people who don't even know what a property tax is?

    Obama: Campaigning Like It's 1936
    10/28/2011 - While Republican presidential candidates are looking forward by proposing variations of a flat income tax, President Barack Obama’s tax-the-rich campaign strategy is looking backward—to Franklin Roosevelt’s 1936 reelection campaign. FDR won his reelection, but the American people lost: Roosevelt’s new taxes on business and the “economic royalists” gave us the “Roosevelt recession” of 1937-38.

    you wrote:please come back to us when you learn the difference between income taxes and taxes in general (the latter includes payroll, state, local, sales, etc).:

    OBAMA did NOT make that distinction and THAT'S what is being addressed!

    FACT is the hedge fund MGR paid MORE NY state, NY City taxes then the PLumber/Teacher!
    FACT is the plumber/teacher had PAYROLL taxes deducted right?
    PAYROLL income taxes that when they filed, the received a refund!
    As far as SS/Medicare.. THEY are returned when retire right???
    So again.. apples to apples Obama/HEdge fund PAID more in federal taxes!
    Check the downloadable IRS table if you are smart enough!
    I can't believe why people are so stupid not to think for themselves... you are showing why fewer intelligent people are turning their backs on Obama's devisiveness and duplicity and especially Idiocy... Obama paid MORE taxes then Plumber/teachers!
