Actually, Obama has been very consistent on taxes. The stimulus package cut taxes for the vast majority of Americans. The only tax increases I've ever heard him advocate are for the wealthy.

So, then it seems you think a business grossing $250K a year, with five employees falls into the wealthy category?

Before costs, that equates to $50K a year were the proceeds distributed equally, which they wouldn't be considering owner / employee relationship. Deduct costs and you are down around $20K.

39% tax on a $250K gross income is nothing short of insane.

Obama raised taxes on the Poor immediately after taking office you liar. He raised the tobacco tax in 2009 dipstick.

Why are you such a liar on everything? Obama's failed stimulus wasn't a tax cut for most American either. It simply gave people that already paid NOTHING a Gov Check! That's not a cut. It's welfare.

Because (obviously...) if he ended his wars, he wouldn't be able to carry on the proletarian Maoist Stalinist communist Marxist international revolution. You see, in order to mobilize the worker class to overthrow their masters and establish the dictatorship of the proletariat, Obama needs to be spread his Leninist Trotskyist socialist message to the poor industrial workers of the world, such as those in Afghanistan, renowned for its industrial output. That way, he can spread socialist communist Marxism across the globe, eventually joining with China and finally Cuba to create one massive communist socialist Maoist Trotskyist superstate ("The United Nations of Stalinist Marxist Homosexuality"). Then, finally, Obama, as supreme master of the world, will be able to force EVERYONE to become left wing pot smokers and put pictures of Martin Luther King in their rooms.
Makes sense, right?

Thank You, President Obama:“Just a couple of years in that big house in Washington and you and your spendthrift colleagues have managed to blight the most productive economy the world has ever seen. Thank you Mr. President!... In the space of two years, you have done more damage to this economy — which means the future not only of this country but the rest of what you would disdain to call the civilized world — than any President in history. You are a poor man’s Jimmy Carter, a midget Herbert Hoover, a disaster for this country and the world.”

Amazing how one president can single-handedly manipulate a 15 trillion dollar economy in just three years, isn't it? I mean, usually you have to factor in massive long term cyclical economics, international politics and myriad of other complex economic factors, but not with Obama! Somehow he has miraculously and deviously engineered the downfall of the global economy, and what's more--he did it before he even came to power! WOW!

Obama's presidency is historic alright... S&P downgrades U.S. credit rating for first time

By Zachary A. Goldfarb,
Published: August 5, 2011

ced Friday night that it has downgraded the U.S. credit rating for the first time, dealing a symbolic blow to the world’s economic superpower in what was a sharply worded critique of the American political system.

Lowering the nation’s rating to one notch below AAA, the credit rating company said “political brinkmanship” in the debate over the debt had made the U.S. government’s ability to manage its finances “less stable, less effective and less predictable.” It said the bipartisan agreement reached this week to find at least $2.1 trillion in budget savings “fell short” of what was necessary to tame the nation’s debt over time and predicted that leaders would not be likely to achieve more savings in the future.

'No risk' the US will lose its top credit rating, says Treasury Tax Cheat Geithner

By Michael O'Brien
04/19/11

Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner said Tuesday there is "no risk" the U.S. will lose its top credit rating amid a new analysis that revised its outlook on American debt to "negative."

Geithner took to the airwaves of financial news networks to push back against a report Monday by Standard & Poor's that lowered its outlook on U.S. debt to "negative," reflecting political uncertainty over whether lawmakers will reach an agreement to address long-term debt.
