$1,500,000,000,000.00 Tax Increase (???!?!?!?!?!) Really???

Seems the President's rant this morning was nothing more than a campaign speech as I don't think anyone in Congress is ignorant enough to allow the damage of this plan to go forward.  The President is back to his class-baiting division techniques in an effort to conquer the election.  Pitting opposing groups against each other so he may rise above.  It's a technique that worked well in the last election and seems he's back to his modus operandi.

Sadly, for his own political gain, this does nothing to get the country back on track.  We have millions hurting in economic turmoil and a 1.5 trillion dollar tax hike does nothing to help.  It merely increases the size of government and lines the pockets of the people who support him while hurting, or even devastating, those that don't.  

When you look at our country and it's realized tax rate of approximately 51% you clearly see that they are more than halfway towards their goal.  

If anyone in Washington was serious about this fiscal problem, they'd cut corporate welfare, foreign welfare and end the trillions of dollars going overseas.  These would be sound policies that would bring about prosperity and engender greater freedoms.  

Sadly, the likelihood of this ever happening is next to nil as big government must continue to grow to fund the status quo.  In that respect we already know, from experience, the ends will almost always justify the means.

Mark - he keeps eroding the nation. The divide can turn ugly, and it is purely political. Obama is Obama and I do not understand why people expect anything different from him.

The really sad part is that those HALF of Americans who pay NO taxes might be enough to re-elect him.  Now what country can I relocated to...

It is a shame...   But I feel that most of the nation sees it.  I just hope it doesn't become a "Chicago Way" election where everyone "Votes early and often."

I am sooooo sick of the Obama bashing!  Why must you all insist on blaming someone?  This country went to HELL long before Obama was elected.  Furthermore, the PRESIDENT makes no decisions ALONE regardless of who is sitting at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue!!!   If you have all the RIGHT ANSWERS, please add your name to the 2012 ballot and we will be happy to elect you.  Or better yet, since you have all the RIGHT ANSWERS why not take them to the Oval Office instead of hiding behind this blog.  If you can't fix the problem, don't add to it!

Hi Lisa!

I'm sorry you feel so strong about my comment - but I did offer a solution in the very last sentence and those solutions have been presented to the Oval office many times by many people.  

Please take note that my comments were directed not only at the Oval office but Washington as a whole.  Remember, even Reagan expanded government and it's been expanding since long before that.  

If we want prosperity and freedom in this country - we must stop the goverment expansion.  My main point was that for government to survive - it must expand and it must do so at an ever increasing rate.  They've reached a 51% control of our lives - how much more do they want to go?  This proposed tax increase expands it unthinkably further.
