Hussain the Terrible wants to tax the rich so he can play more golf and vacation.

Why can't Liberals learn how to run a business instead of Stealing tax money from YOU and me.

Obama is a LIAR. Raising taxes on the so called wealthy does NOT stop automatic cuts because the amount if the money stolen from them isn't significant when comparing it to Obama's TRILLION DOLLAR DEFICITS.

A Republican RINO will whine about the debt but refuse to pay the Bush GOP debt down.

The problem with Boehnor and his Republican RINOs is that they only know how to spend spend spend. But they are clueless when it comes to raising revenue.

OMG, have you the slightest idea how much the current President has spent in the last 4 years? Here's a clue, as much as all the Presidents from Washington through Eisenhower spent combined. And now he wants more. We don't have any money so he is borrowing 40 cents on the dollar, and he has nothing to show for it, nothing. Is our life better? Tammy Duckworth tried to tell us tonight at a debate with Joe Walsh our lives are better. She lied.

The repugnantcan desperation is showing. Not getting away with their typical spinning, lying, cheating, stealing and bullying anymore. Everybody, including the judges and voters in swing states, is seeing through the crap that is the repugnantcan way and rejecting it. Y'all can keep it up all you want, it just isn't getting you anywhere, and you know it. It shows big time.

The national average annual income is $50K. If you make more than that, you are one of the rich bastards they are talking about and need to pay more, far more taxes.
