George Washington never told a lie. But then he never had to fill out a form 1040.

We cannot take any more increased taxes without spending cuts up front. Those parasites in our major cities are strangling us with their insane demands. We give them food, housing, cell phones, tvs, healthcare, and cable. What next, cars? They all seem to have a car, but they sure as hell don't use them to go to work. This is way past ENOUGH ALREADY.

Taxes are lower today then since before WW2. And we have a military who,s base spending is 800 billion with another 500 billion in back door spending. When we talk cuts seems like only the sick poor and old must make cuts. How about we start at the top this time.

We must be the only ones paying higher taxes, and we have a tax expert to file ours. Maybe you don't make enough to be bothered. I wouldn't care if they raised the taxes if they would use it for something beside buying votes, and making worthless people so comfortable they will never get a job.

Unless you make less then 250K a year your taxes have went down. Billionaires and millionaires pay half what they did 30-50 years ago. Now yes the working class who cant afford it do pay more now. The rich hate taxes ask Leona Helmsly.

During Viet Nam war up to five million Vietnamese exposed to Agent Orange. 400,000 maimed or killed. 500,000 born with birth defects. Chemicals used from 1962 to 1971. Yes WMD's have a history. Ask the progressives who introduced it to Viet Nam. American soldiers affected also.

We don't make near $250,000, and our taxes went up. Obama lied to you, we knew he lied, but that's because we expect Community Organizers to stretch the truth. It is their job.

Our free-ride, coke sniffing, Socialist-Program/Affirmative Action President was the recipient/beneficiary of all of those hard working folks who did.

Like I said if you make less then 250K your taxes over last 30 years has doubled all why those who make millions and billions have seen there taxes cut in half.

Oh and one thing that taxes doubling for those under 250K all happened before Obama took office. NOT ONE TAX HAS WENT UP SINCE OBAMA WAS ELECTED....In fact taxes on working class went up higher under Bush and Reagan during there terms combined then rest of last 100 years...

The only people who are not paying higher taxes are those working part time. or fewer hours then they worked under President Bush/ Self employed people are paying much higher taxes, plus fees of all kinds. Anything the Government can collect for the greedy needy. Thank God it will be over soon. Obie wan has less then 3 years left, and as a lame duck, he won't get his way all the time now. Life is good.
