Bush Tax Cuts

Posturing on Sequestration

February 20, 2013

In August 2011, our leaders in Washington decided to kick the proverbial can down the road in order to not deal with our economic situation until after the November election.  The debt limit, the Bush tax rates, and potentially devastating spending cuts were all left on the table until that time.  How very brave of [...]

Obama’s Latest Tax Play

July 10, 2012

Wasting everyone’s time yesterday, the President doubled-down on his class warfare reelection theme by indicating that he’d keep the Bush tax cuts, but only for the middle class.  This proposal will not pass the House, creating salivating class warriors across Libtardia hoping to paint the Republicans as both unwilling to compromise and in the pocket [...]

Ben Franklin once said, “In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.”  I hope the former isn’t in your future any time soon, but you’d better get your procrastinating a** to the post office — it’s tax day and the clock’s ticking!

Obama: Send in the Clowns

December 11, 2010

If there’s one thing all Democrats and attractive women in politics know, it’s that you can’t say no to Bill Clinton.  So, in Obama’s darkest moment in the eyes of his kook base, he summoned Bill Clinton to save the day: So, I guess we’re all supposed to be nostalgic for the 1990s and accept [...]

Tax Cut Compromise: Sabotaging the Hostage Takers?

December 8, 2010

The statist left is irate!  Our latest plunge into a Keynesian morass isn’t doing enough damage fast enough for some on the left and Obama is stuck defending his actions to his own base.  You’d think someone died listening to Obama defend extending the Bush tax cuts and you’d think someone was murdered listening to [...]

July 29, 2010

Remember this gem from candidate Obama about how we need to “spread the wealth around” to help everybody?  Or this one about how NO family making under $250,000 will see their taxes go up in an Obama Nation?  Ha! The real problem for Dems is in the second video:  NO tax increases on the protected [...]
