When B. Hussein was campaigning, he insisted that only those EEEVIL rich people making over $250,000 would be taxed, and that the tax burdens of 90% of Americans would decrease. But now it looks like they’re trying to soften up Americans in order to get them to accept “inevitable” tax increases.
Here’s how that tax cheat Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner tried to rationalize it to George Stephanopoulos:
“We have to bring these deficits down very dramatically,” Geithner told me. “And that’s going to require some very hard choices.”
“We will not get this economy back on track, recovery will be not strong and sustained, unless we convince the American people that we are going to have the will to bring these deficits down once recovery is firmly established,” he said.
While Geithner told me, “There are signs the recession is easing,” he warned that, “We have a ways to go.”
“I want to emphasize the basic reality that unemployment is very high in this country,” the secretary said. But, he underlined that the administration is “going to do what is necessary to bring growth back on track.”
Turning to the bank bailout, he told me it is “quite unlikely” that the U.S. Treasury will go back to Congress to ask for more funding for the financial rescue package.
“We do not plan to ask for more money and I think it’s quite unlikely that we do,” Geithner said in his most blunt language to date on TARP funding. The secretary said that today the TARP has roughly $130 billion, in part due to more than $70 billion that has already come back into the government.
Now let’s see here. That RINO former President George Bush Senior lost his bid for re-election because he re-negged on his promise not to raise taxes. Could the same thing hopefully happen to our teflon black supremacist Marxist Muslim Imam-in-Chief? One can only hope. Unfortunately, I think that since it’s only seven month’s into the Obamessiah’s presidency, his people will get away with blaming it on President Bush. Naturally, the media will cover for him.
Also, do you notice that when liberals mention deficits, it’s always their way of saying “We’re raising your taxes?” I remember once listening to a constipated sounding NPR announcer (all of them sound that way, which is how I know I’m listening to NPR) pontificate that most Americans are in favor of increased taxes if it means reducing our deficit. As far as I can remember, the woman never bothered to back up her assertion. Anway…the MSM conveniently ignores the fact that it’s the politicians who are responsible for out of control government spending. They never bother to ask why taxpayers should be penalized when these politicians spend our money like drunken sailors. That would be like saying “Hey, the Emperor has no clothes on!”
