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.
