The Obama Broken Record: Tax the Wealthy

January 18, 2015

Congressional Republicans on Sunday pummeled President Obama’s plan to increase taxes on America’s highest wage earners, dismissing the proposal as not serious and a “non-starter.”

The plan was released late Saturday by the White House and attempts to increase taxes on the top earners and others to pay for cuts for the middle class.

The president is scheduled to further explain the plan on Tuesday night in his State of the Union address.

“The notion … that in order for some people to do better, someone has to do worse is just not true,” Florida GOP Sen. Marco Rubio told CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “Raising taxes on people that are successful is not going to make people that are struggling more successful. … It would also be counter-productive.”

    I really think it would be fair, for anyone making under 40,000 should not have to pay taxes. Then only 3% from 40,001 to 50,000. 5% for those at 50001 to
    100,000 8 % for 100,001 to 140,000. 10% all the rest. straight across the board. no deductions anywhere , and it should be on their net income !

    Rubio is not addressing the issue, it is an issue of tax fairness not about who is doing good of bad so as so many GOP they have spun it that way and away from that is a smoke screen to cover that this is an issue of fairness and nothing else

    0bama is not Robin Hood.
    0bama takes from the rich and gives it to the government.
    Robin Hood took from the government and gave it to the people.

    Obama would NOT bring this proposal when the Democrats were in control of Congress, simply because he knew not even them would support them and now he is bring it to try to embarrass the Republican it just shows how desperate he has gotten, He has now fallen bellow grade!! What a shame!!
