    Is Obama just wanting to let the capital gains tax cut signed by Bush expire?
    Or is he really going to raise capital gains tax?

    He wants to let the Bush cut expire, and has talked in the past about raising it even further. I do not believe he has talked about that lately at all though.

    The notion of this coming "New World Order" dictatorship, and a 'New Age Religion' of a Satanic nature is no longer a myth, it's a plain fact.

    -The world leaders are now calling for this "New World Order" publicly, overtly, as the elite have quietly for years.

    These (World Leaders) are now moving aggressively forward towards their planned global dictatorship, because people are starting to wake-up to their overall agenda, and they are moving in to close the trap of global dictatorship before the masses awaken to their evil agendas.

    Obama said during the campaign that he would raise the tax. He kept reminding everyone that during the Carter years it was much higher then it is today.

    The Dems don't have to do anything to raise our taxes....just let the cuts expire. They aren't gonna vote before the election to cut them and they aren't gonna vote before the election to raise them. Doing nothing will raise them automatically.

    But this has put the lie to the old liberal adage "Tax-cuts for the rich" because the Bush tax-cuts benefited everyone and the Dems don't want their voters to recognize this.

    The Dems are using tax-cuts and Gay rights to try to rally their base because they can't stand on their record. Their only accomplishment is to spend us into bankruptcy.

    He won't start talking about it till after the election and he'll try to make us love having our taxes raised.:udaman: We'll learn to thank him for taking our hard earned profits. Profits are evil.

    The first step in this dastardly plan is to....Raise the capital gains tax by five points?
