To distract from his failed record all BO talks about nowadays is raising taxes on the rich so he can spend more 1) Bush introduced the first $2 trillion budget and the first $3 trillion budget and now Obama is pushing $4 trillion. Yet, liberals who support BO are still waiting for the trillions in new spending to trickle down to them? Of course it never will and BO knows it. 2) How much does CBO say BO will get if he gets his way on taxing the rich? $80 billion, which is not even a tiny drop in the bucket, although it is apparently enough to distract an entire nation from his failed presidency.
