President Obama may have to raise taxes to pay for public health care and the growing deficit, an eventuality that administration officials touched lightly on Sunday as they promoted an economy emerging from recession.Not if, but when... Yes, despite all his campaign promises to not raise your taxes, here we are, 8 months into the first year of his presidency, and we learn that was a lie, he will indeed raise our taxes. Feeling stupid for voting for Obama yet? Not me, I wanted Romney.
With an expected deficit next year of $1.8 trillion, and spending still being planned for a $1 trillion, 10-year health care reform, officials say something will have to be done to prevent further erosion of the economy.
"We will not get this economy back on track, recovery will be not strong and sustained, unless we ... can convince the American people that we're going to have the will to bring these deficits down once recovery is firmly established," Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner said on ABC's "This Week."
Asked point blank whether it was right to suggest it is a matter of when, not if, taxes will be raised, Geithner responded, "It is absolutely right."
Listen America, you have to learn a hard lesson, Democrats tax and spend, it's sort of that "thang," it's what they do. As of late, Republicans haven't been a heck of a lot better. If you are sick of paying taxes, if you are sick of the disgusting speed at which the Government is growing, then you need to do some hard research before you vote. Research doesn't mean the opinion page of your newspaper, ads on TV, or watching CNN. Research means looking into a candidates voting record, into their past dealing in and out of politics, and really getting to know the person running. In this way, you can find someone that is truly fiscally conservative, and get them elected. Tax and spend, needs to end.
