    Oh my God--this claim by Obama is probably the biggest farce I have seen in my 55 years. Coming from Obama's campaign rhetoric that he is only going to tax 5% of the population making over 250K & give 95%--or the rest of us a tax cut!

    Frankly, I cannot believe that anyone would believe this huge farce. Let alone 31% of Americans--according to this poll--that are voting for Obama simply because they think they're going to get a tax cut with Obama as POTUS. Maybe this 31% represent the 40% in this country that pay no income taxes anyway, & they are looking for their welfare checks?

    Now in the final days--we see that this 250K figure has come down to 150K according to Joe Biden, & then to 120K according to Democrat govenor Bill Richardson. This bar is going to come down much lower than this.

    Obama states that we are "selfish" if we don't want to give the government more of our hard earned dollars. Yet, Americans are the most generous people on this earth. We still donate more money to people in need in this country & all over the world.

    LET'S FACE IT FOLKS! There is no possible--accountable way that 5% of the population or those making over 250K per year, can give us all a tax break, pay for Obama's additional 1 TRILLION in new spending proposals, & give us all national health care insurance at the same time. It simply cannot be done. The only other place Obama can go for all this new spending & tax cuts is the middle class of this country. He will then re-distribute it to people who pay no income taxes.

    If you're one of middle class tax payers in this country, voting for Obama simply because you believe you're going to get a tax cut, you are going to be extremely disappointed.

    Both defined the middle class in seperate income levels. Neither candidate said "If you make over $120k or $150k you'll get a tax increase." It's a semi-gaffe by both of them and you know it.

    Who's we? Do you earn $250,000 net a year?

    Wait, so you're saying that we're going to have yet another presidency in which we increase the national debt? Shocker of all shockers! Of course he can't pay for it with the budget we have now... that's why he has to cut the budget in some places. McCain can't afford to pay for his $2500/$5000 refundable tax credit either. Bush couldn't afford the billions of dollars that we've spent on Iraq and Afghanistan. This is nothing new. Adding to the national debt will not hurt our economy or cost any jobs. The change in Obama is an administration that actually cares about its people and the world around it. That's change. To talk with our enemies instead of blowing them up, to provide REAL health insurance instead of giving multi-billion dollar health insurance companies massive tax cuts.

    They better hurry and lower those expectations, because there is little doubt that Obama will raise taxes on everyone above at least $42k per year, he already voted in favor of that.

    Elections and promises have nothing to do with reality.

    The sad thing is that Americans think all that is wrong with this economy is taxes.

    Bush has left us with a $500 billion dollar deficit.

    Somebody's taxes have to be raised. Obama wants to return the top tax rates to where they were when Ronald Reagan was president, and lower taxes for those who make less than $250,000 a year. It works for me.

    I do not think the numbers work.

    Until American workers are making more money, hence can pay more taxes, nobody's plan is going to work.

    He did? Show me the bill that was passed or that wasn't passed where he voted yay on a bill that increased taxes on people earning $42k a year.

    Here is his voting records.

    Barack Obama - U.S. Senator for Illinois

    He has stated, specifically, very clearly, several times the following:

    If you make under $200,000 a year, you will receive a tax cut
    If you make between $200,000 and $250,000 a year, you will not see a change in your taxes.
    If you make over $250,000 a year, your taxes will increase 3% to 39%

    He has said this thousands of times. There are media recordings of it everywhere. This isn't a Bush: "No new taxes" this is very sussinctly clear. He has been clear about this since day 1. He will NOT raise taxes on the middle class.

    Welcome to the 20th century. This nation has been going further and further into debt since the 1930s.
