    Well, he didn't . . . if you define "taxes" as simply being income taxes, and that's apparenty what Republicans believe. Because Republicans seem to think that payroll taxes, property taxes, sales taxes, excise taxes, etc., etc. don't count when they say ""47%" pay NOTHING AT ALL.

    Hell, all Americans pay a shitload of taxes. And the poorest pay the most as a percentage of their incomes, when you consider ALL taxes.

    Asshats.

    I remember when he promised:

    He would cut $100M spending from his cabinet
    That Obamacare wouldn't add one dime to the deficit
    That if you liked your doctor or health care plan you could keep it
    That he was focused on jobs
    That his stimulus would keep unemployment under 7%
    That he would sit down and talk to the Iranians
    That he was restart relations with the Russians.
    etc etc.

    He is the most failed, lying president in history and gets a pass from the libtards every time.

    Did he? When? In any case, that can't be answered in one form or another. Federal employees have had years of stagnent or frozen wages and force reductions, so I suppose it depends upon how you measure it.

    It didn't, and the nonpartisan CBO agrees.
    You can. I have. Have YOU had to change anything?
    He was, and he is. That is what the stimulus package was all about, dumbie.
    No, he did not. That is a lie.
    I thought you fuckers were whining because he was talking TOO MUCH to the Iranians. Make up your collective minds.
    Oh, PLEASE. These are the RUSSIANS we're talking about here. He's made gestures, but that entire country has turned into a haven for organized crime and the mafia since the USSR collapsed. It takes two to have a conversation.

    Well if you really want to be truthful,the 47% has always been Federal income taxes,not anything else

    All the other taxes have been conveniently added buy disingenuous people like yourself. Trying to bluff over their weak argument.

    47 % pay no federal income taxes and or get even more back then paid in,these are just facts black and white. But the over emotional hacks will say anything truth or not.
