Let us all hold president Obama to his PROMISE not to raise taxes on the middle class. I guess this author at Yahoo Finance thinks democrats (not republicans) may in fact WANT to raise taxes on the middle class. Middle class tax breaks on the line - Yahoo!

So voters who voted for Obama or against Obama should hold our president accountable to the #1 promise he made to the people of this country.
