Raising taxes on the rich…

So, it appears that Senator Obama has voted in the past for a Senate Democrats’ tax plan that would raise the 25 percent federal tax rate to 28 percent.

He has repeatedly pledged that as president he would raise taxes on the “rich”.

The thing is, the  25 percent bracket is between $32,550 and $78,850 for individuals and between $65,100 and $131,450 for married folks

I had no idea that $32,550 was wealthy.  I had no idea that $78,850 was rich

Or that say two first year teachers who happen to be married to one another and making $33,000 each are wealthy or rich or whatever…  And Senator Obama wants to raise teacher pay?  Why?  They are already so very rich?  Rich enough to have their taxes increased.

  1. Obama will raise taxes on everyone and all products and food will go up in price! Take a look at this:

    Does anyone make sense out of what Obama says regarding gas prices? He wants us the American people to adjust to higher gas prices that are going higher each day, oh don’t worry about the price just adjust and pay it. Putting more money into their pockets, I think he’s talking about the American people but maybe talking about his friends with oil investments! Obama wants to take money out of your pockets by raising taxes! Encouraging the market to adapt to these new circumstances more quickly, particularly U.S. automakers, how are you encouraging the automakers Obama, by raising the price of gas higher, higher taxes by raising the capital gain tax from 18% to 28%. Come on now I didn’t see anything that made sense in what Barack Hussein Obama said!

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., criticized Democrats, including fellow Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., over recent comments Obama made regarding gas prices.

    The comments that McConnell referred to were given during an interview with CNBC. Discussing rising gasoline prices, Obama said: “I think that I would have preferred a gradual adjustment. The fact that this is such a shock to American pocketbooks is not a good thing.

    Obama also said that “if we take some steps right now to help people make the adjustment, first of all by putting more money into their pockets, but also by encouraging the market to adapt to these new circumstances more quickly, particularly U.S. automakers, then I think ultimately, we can come out of this stronger and have a more efficient energy policy than we do right now.

    McConnell, honing in on Obama’s referral to “gradual” price increases, said Obama’s remarks are evidence that Obama believes “rising gas prices aren’t the problem. The problem, he suggested, is that they’ve gone up too fast. He said he would prefer a gradual adjustment.”

    He continued: “Whether it’s shutting down domestic exploration in large areas both onshore and offshore, instituting a moratorium on oil shale development, increasing the gas tax, or refusing to pursue coal to liquids, Democrats long ago implemented a ‘gradual adjustment’ on gas prices that’s reflected today in the $4.05 Americans are paying for a gallon of gas.”
