“The last thing you want to do is to raise taxes in the middle of a recession.”

Barack Obama, 2009

Here in September of 2011 our president is now calling for $1.5 trillion in new taxes. That is $1,500,000,000,000.00 in case you were curious how many zeros were in there. Here is an informative article with details on the plan. In a few words, he wants to tax the wealthy, tighten tax breaks for corporations, and put more of a tax burden on health care providers. President Obama’s plan calls for nearly $3.00 in new tax increases for every $1.00 in additional spending cuts. He is contradicting precisely what he stated in the video above and he is obviously out of ideas and credibility. The wealthiest Americans and the biggest corporations, as well as, small businesses are obviously not hiring at a level that is lowering unemployment numbers, so the logic here is to tax them even more and to take away many of their business tax breaks. That sounds like a real winning idea to get things moving in a stagnant economy that will become even more threatened if this thing passes.

"Veto threats, a massive tax hike, phantom savings and punting on entitlement reform is not a recipe for economic or job growth-or even meaningful deficit reduction.”

Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell

935.3 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day21.
