Obama recently tried to get the Republicans to close the Tax Loopholes that Obama qualified for, as you very well know...and they refused to vote them in. So now, they cannot blame him for following the Tax Laws that THEY refused to change, but they will try. It won't wash with the Voters!<quoted text> Good morning Linda !
It is hard to exaggerate what the Obama tax filing did FOR those of us who believe that taxes for high earners are MUCH too low. The President has placed those who constantly advocate for massive tax cuts for the wealthy as they oppose a raise to the minimum wage, advocate cuts to Social Security, and the social safety net to fund them, in the unenviable position of DEFENDING the President and the tax rate he paid last year. This will be the gift that keeps on giving...since here we will separate the wheat from the chaff....We now get to divide the true believers from the hypocrites and to say that I am overjoyed is an understatement !
And BTW, not one of the TEApublicans in the House has given back any percentage of their Pay, and only 2 in the Senate. But, Obama did and 3 Democratic Senators did!
You won't see or hear any TEApublicans talking about that. In fact, they will try their best to get the Voters from knowing about it and to get them to forget about what Obama and 3 Democratic Senators did, but not ONE Member of the House has done...you know, the Ones fighting tooth and toenail to cut everything that the Ones who need it the worst, have now!
They'll do all the damage they can to everybody they can, except the Super Wealthy and themselves, but they won't sacrifice one penny out of their own pockets, just our pockets...and they make a heck of a lot more than any of the rest of us do and do a whole lot less to earn it!
TEApublicans are spoiled, extremely greedy Children in Adult bodies!
