Let’s see. Obama says he is not going to raise taxes on 95% of Americans.
WRONG!! When the Bush tax cuts expire, everyone’s taxes will go up.

Obama wants to use the tax code to end the welfare reform taxpayers worked
so hard to get passed under President Clinton.
Under Obama/Ayers, even more of those who don’t pay any income taxes,
will get a refund.
Guess where that money is going to come from?
You guessed it! You. The hard-working taxpayers of America.

Doesn’t surprise me that Obama is looking for a way to reverse
another Clinton-era policy. He’ll reverse Clinton’s free trade
policy. He’ll reverse Clinton’s balanced budget policy.

We’ll change alright. Right back to the dreaded days of Jimmy Carter.
Oh help us! High inflation. High Taxes. High unemployment.
Weak national security. Weak, incompetent leadership.

Most of Barack Hussein Obama's advisors are in bed with Chris Dodd and
Barney Frank in the rape of our banking system.

Time-Warner wasn't content on reporting one side of the news. They
had to block others from getting the true story out.

Every vote for every Dem is a vote for a prolonged recession and
ruinous fiscal and trade policies. The Dem party today is NOT the
party of Bill Clinton. It is the party of the loser Jimmy Carter.

If the media spent any time checking Barack Hussein Obama out,
Hillary Clinton would be our nominee.
