    Only in the Dimocrat mind is doing away with tax cuts - that is, raising tax rates - not considered a tax increase. A bunch of friggin' idiots. But, hey, Barry said if you make less than $250k your taxes won't increase, not by a single dime. Come to think of it he's right. It'll be a hell of a lot more than one single dime.

    Kman.. you must be mistaken because Barry said:...

    "In order to save our children from a future of debt, we will also end the tax breaks for the wealthiest 2% of Americans. But let me perfectly clear, because I know you’ll hear the same old claims that rolling back these tax breaks means a massive tax increase on the American people: if your family earns less than $250,000 a year, you will not see your taxes increased a single dime. I repeat: not one single dime. In fact, the recovery plan provides a tax cut – that’s right, a tax cut – for 95% of working families. And these checks are on the way." Barack Obama

    Oh Brother. I've got some swamp land down here in Florida that I'll sell real cheap.

    These people slay me.

    He's going to raise taxes on those making $200,000 or more as well as companies. Who does he think will pay the taxes for those companies???? The tooth fairy perhaps. No. We the consumer will just be paying more for everything.

    The clowns in DC need to curb their spending. THey also need to go back in history to see what did reduce the deficit. That should'nt be to hard. Clinton and his Rep Congress accomplished that during the 90's. Whatever worked for those boys then, should work now.

    The recession was due to market saturation. Happens every 6-8 years in a free economy.

    Cant be stopped and most certainly can not be intentionally or accidentally created by a person, company, industry, or government.

    It is a natural phenomenon in a free economy.

    Are you perhaps referring to the credit crunch?

    Obama has lied AGAIN.

    A "slew" of taxes are now being attempted that will land atop the heads of middle class America.

    Middle-class families also will find fewer tax breaks available to them in 2010 if other popular tax provisions are allowed to expire. Among them:

    * Taxpayers who itemize will lose the option to deduct state sales-tax payments instead of state and local income taxes;

    * The $250 teacher tax credit for classroom supplies;

    * The tax deduction for up to $4,000 of college tuition and expenses;

    * Individuals who don't itemize will no longer be able to increase their standard deduction by up to $1,000 for property taxes paid;

    * The first $2,400 of unemployment benefits are taxable, in 2009 that amount was tax-free.
