Every one of Obama's stump speeches that I heard had the claim somewhere in it that NO new taxes would be levied on the middle class.
He often made the charge that McCain was going to do the unthinkable and tax the health care coverage people have through their employer-- the unions ran with this and used it in mass mailings to scare their members. ...AND NOW? Barack has taxing heath care on the table. That would indeed turn out to be a tax on the middle class.
(I keep thinking of jobs that pay pretty crappy but people take for the great benefits...like firefighters...) Speaking of that, you can read Obama's Top Five Health Care Lies over at Forbes.
And Cap -N-Trade? Does "O" think because it's hidden in 1300 unread pages of a climate change bill, that the politicos out here don't realize that this is going to kill the middle class family in utility bills and outrageous gas prices...?
I been trying to get through to Congress and voice my displeasure on both proposals...to no avail thus far. I'm hoping this is a good sign and tons of you are calling too!
What can we do to reclaim our government (...of the people, by the people, for the people?) And our tax dollars? Well, the "cash for clunkers" initiative goes into effect today--so we can all get a $50 car at our local junkyard and then trade it into Barack for $4,500.
We can call our Senators and Reps and fax them this story. We can demand our Congressmen read that report by EPA analyst Alan Carlin IN ADDITION to every word of the bill BEFORE they let Cap&Trade go through the Senate.
I know I'm "nagging", but we can also FIND A TEA PARTY in our area and GO! The powers that be (and even the MSM) can not ignore us if we're out in huge numbers....
