    Read my lips: Obama not trying to spark 'class warfare' - CSMonitor.com

    To hear the media report it, President Obama is proposing a tax increase on wealthy Americans. That’s misleading at best. He’s proposing that everyone receive a continuation of the Bush tax cuts on the first $250,000 of their incomes. Any dollars they earn in excess of $250,000 will be taxed at the old Clinton-era rates.

    Get it? Everyone is treated exactly the same. Everyone gets a one-year extension of the Bush tax cut on the first $250,000 of income. No “class warfare.”

    ---------------------------------

    Did you get that? The first 250,000 is under the Bush tax cuts. It's only AFTER the first 250,000 the Clinton rates apply.

    This Republican leadership is evil. Seriously evil. Calling it class warfare when everyone is treated the same. Disgusting.

    Get back to us when the federal government lives within it's means instead of blowing out the treasury every day at our expense.

    Besides, rdean, Bush extracted a cool TRILLION bucks more from the evil rich over his eight years vs. Clinton - largely thanks to the Bush tax cuts.

    Why would you want to give that up?

    In addition to making no sense, RDean, "When everyone is treated the same" starting off with taxing the bejammers out of business professionals and destroying the Wall Street market, the Allah-brainwashed plane hijackers of 9/11 did less damage to the world market than Obamacare antics are going to do to this nation.

    The reason you have unemployment and confusion is because you have a President who is determined to undermine private businesses and corporations.

    THE OBAMA NATION IS NOTHING BUT A PARASITIC PLAN TO DESTROY FREE ENTERPRISE

    That's the truth, and your willy nilly bull isn't straight arrow.

    Furthermore, Bush has not been the president for almost 4 years.

    Cut the crap.

    It is a tax increase for those with incomes above 250K, add that to the Obamatax on businesses over 50 employees via Obamacare, and this should really slow down an already terrible economy.
    Obama said if he couldn't get the economy rolling in four years, then he would be a one-termer.
    All of us need to help him in that cause.
