Mr Obama's Tax Increases

$2.4 Trillion: The overall tax increase faced by American families, seniors and businesses when the Bush era tax cuts expire.

$2 Trillion: Mr Obama's new "green" ("greedy Obama" is more like it) energy use taxes.

$91 Billion: The cost of reinstating the Death Tax.

$17.2 Billion: The amount spent in 2008 by Congress on frivolous "pork" projects that use taxpayer funds to reward local special interests and pressure groups.

$3,637: The tax hike, on average, that 26 million small business owners will be facing when the tax cuts expire.

$2,034: The average tax increase that will hit 17 million seniors when the tax cuts of 2001 and 2003 expire.

$1,716: The average tax increase for over 100 million Americans when the Bush era tax cuts expire.

$1,480: The average cost in 2000 for couples punished by the Marriage Penalty. The Marriage Penalty was eliminated during the Bush era.

The human toll:

44,000,000 married couples hit when Marriage Penalty is reinstated by the Leftist controlled Congress and Mr Obama. Do you still wonder why marriage is on the decline in the United States?

The economic toll:

8,300,000 jobs created after the tax cuts of 2003. Re-installing those taxes will cost at least this many jobs.

Do you want some cheese with that whine?

Gee, Matt, I'm disappointed... The topic was taxation gone ape, and the genuine impact on human beings.

Is that the best you can do? A bush league insult? Have you nothing to add to a discussion?

Remember, the President has stated over and over he wants to be inclusive, not derisive.

The Obama administration continues to make blunder after blunder, apologize then go on their merry way. So we are to believe that the government will be able to improve banks, car makers and health care based on the performance so far?

I`m sorry, I honestly feel that these spoiled brat elitists in the White House need a well deserved beating!

Cowardly of you, Lynne, not even to have a public identity.

"I Care About America" -

I agree with everything you wrote except the "I'm sorry"... Why would you be sorry for stating the truth? =)

Thanks very much for your service, sir.
