Barack Obama: He's your backdoor tax man. 95% pledge my ass!

From Yahoo:

"The Obama administration's plan to cut more than $1 trillion from the deficit
over the next decade relies heavily on so-called backdoor tax increases that
will result in a bigger tax bill for middle class families."
"Millions of middle-class households already may be facing higher taxes in
2010 because Congress has failed to extend tax breaks that expired on January 1,
most notably a "patch" that limited the impact of the alternative minimum tax.
The AMT...was never indexed for inflation. now the tax is affecting millions of
middle-income households, but lawmakers have been reluctant to repeal it because
is has become a key source of revenue."

"Without annual legislation to renew the patch this year, the AMT could
affect an estimated 25 million taxpayers with incomes as low as $33,750 (or
$45,000 for joint filers). Even if the patch is extended to last year's levels,
the tax will hit American families that can hardly be considered wealthy"

Wait didn't he promise to lower taxes for 95% of all Americans? Pretty sure he did. Let me go check. Oh yeah, here it is.

Warning: This link goes to Satan's own website, so I'll just quote the relevant passage so you don't have to go there.

"Middle class families will see their taxes cut - and no family making less
than $250,000 will see their taxes increase."

"Families making more than $250,000 will pay either the same or lower taxes
than they paid in the 1990s."

I swear, if I had a dime for every promise Satan made and broke, I'd hit that top tax rate bracket.

Down with Big Brother!
