    President Obama said he'd cut taxes for the middle class. He defined the wealthy class as those making over $250K, yet every effing program he has enacted is aimed at those making less than $75K for singles and $150K for couples....what happened?

    Even his "tax credit for new home buyers" is aimed at the same group...WTF? If you make $75K/year, you really can't afford to buy a home in Massachusetts. Well, maybe a condo, but not a house. How is this going to help anything?

    I guess Obama should have said he'd give tax breaks to "most of the middle class". :mad:

    We told you so. Na na na na na na.

    He lied. That's what happened. Just wait until your taxes to up when Bush's cuts expire.

    Dude, you'll be getting an extra $8 a week to help stimulate the economy. Be happy you got anything, since groups like ACORN, that got several billion dollars, really need the money more. Save up your $8 each week and buy a new car, start a business, hire people. Geez, where is the gratitude!?

    "Oh look mommy, it's president Obama, isn't he beautiful"

    "yes dear America is so lucky, he's a real hero, everybody cried when he was sworn in and Mr Windbag Biden kissed him on the mouth he was so grateful, I want you to kneel down every night at bedtime and thank God for sending Barack Hussein Obama to us, oh lord it's so wonderful.

    "mommy"

    "yes dear"

    It took the last guy 8 years to run this nation into the ground. Methinks its right to give Obama more than 1 month to unbush everything.

    I agree with that statement - however the way he's going about it isn't going to work. And that's not what the thread is about, anyway, the thread is about Obama lying. And this is just one example.

    When he made the promise to cut 95% of Americans' taxes the extent of Bush's depravity was not quite public; but fear not! The 'ONE' still has something like 2900 days to get things stabilized and come through.

    Sure they were. He talked about that right up to the election and the big crash had happened by then.

    I'm glad you're beginning to come around on Republicans being depraved; but I must remind you that Obama's barely got started yet.

    He spent $1T in a month. Sorry to tell you this but he's shot his wad for now - $1T spending bills aren't something you can do every month. He's better hope this works because he doesn't get a do-over, not with $1T.

    You're confusing the quick tax breaks in the stimulus package with omnibus tax reform which deals with the tax rate table. He has already signaled that his comprehensive tax reform is now aimed for 2010.

    I will venture to say there's almost no chance any tax cuts for those between $75K and $250K will even match, let alone exceed, the Bush expiring cuts - that's if Obama has any tax cuts at all. Maybe I'll be proven wrong, I hope so, but I doubt it. Those making over $75K can expect to pay more in taxes a year or two down the road not less; IMO anyway.

    This Obama guy is a friggin joke, his Left Wing Socialism is going to do a job on our society.

    One of those female liberal loons was on CNN slobbering about how President Obama loves to play basketball, Barry and the Pelosi gang just gave America a royal f---ing and this silly slopping liberal b!tch is gushing and squealing about Jug Ears Basketball.

    Lovely Michelle and Jug Ears are getting ready to buy a Puppy, wait until the Liberal Media starts on that, Mush Mouth Tingle Legs Matthews will start eating dog food on TV, NBC, PBS, CNN, NY Times etc will forget all about the war, gitmo, and the economy they will be prattling, blubbering gushing and sh!tting their pants for six months over the friggin Obama dog.

    The Federal marginal income Tax Rate tables are not due to expire. The major "Sunset Provision" expiration that I know off the top of my head for 2010 (I'm no CPA, but perhaps someone here can inform me) is the Federal Estate Tax which (unless extended) goes back to a $600,000 tax-free level per decedent (from $3.5 million this year) in 2010.

    Once again, the question begs to be asked: What did the TWO major tax cuts of the Bush years achieve for our national economy? When do we start actually planning for the RESULT instead of the Temporary High?

    The tax cuts didn't accomplish much because we had the Tsunami of irresponsible spending finally hit us in the ass. The current situation isn't due to the tax cuts though.

    Correct. The tax cuts resulted in the gubmit stealing more of the people's money than ever before. Amazingly though, and this should come as such a surprise to everyone eating without the aid of a tube, the record consfiscation still wasn't enough! :eek:

    As long as they're equal across the board they generally are. That doesn't mean they can fix every problem, though. I have no doubt that a suspension of the payroll tax (both employer and employee) until it's cost $1T would help more than the $1T spending spree Nancy just went on.
