    During the election that is.

    But now it's fair game

    Idea on Hill: Taxing Health Benefits - WSJ.com

    So now that he's president, it's OK to do exactly what he excoriated his opponent for suggesting.

    Oh and haven't I been saying all along that a host of new taxes would be a comin'?

    But you still want to believe that Obama will cut taxes. Can you spell N A I V E?

    Talk is cheap, it's what you do that counts.

    oh we'll have an economy.

    An economy that drains its citizens of 80% of their money that is.

    Well, I could write a best seller about it, but why bother, since all the profits will be taxed and stolen from it.

    It's typical talk from a Democrat...all politicians really, but with Democrats especially... say what you can to get elected then screw the people who voted for you...what can the people do now...nothing. Sucks. What sucks too is that the big media won't cover this so 80% of the voters will have no idea...

    Jeez I hope he doesn't cut them. He can use the recession as an excuse. Obama needs to repeal all the Bush tax cuts to knock down that deficit the conservatives are complaining about. We can all agree reducing the deficit would be a positive.
