But we did.
“If your family earns less than $250,000 a year, you will not see your taxes increased a single dime. I repeat: not a single dime.” – Barack Obama, Feb. 24, 2009
We told you he wasn’t telling the truth. Have you seen your check this month?
We’ll wait for you to admit you were sadly mistaken.
Here’s a list from Heritage on the Tax Increases in 2013:
Each of these 13 tax increases will slow the economy, meaning that businesses will create fewer jobs. Fewer jobs will make it even more difficult to land a job than it already is for the more than 12 million Americans looking for work.
Read the whole list.
From the Washington Times:
Thus, it was Mr. Obama who raised taxes on millions of Americans, not Mr. Bush.
How many Americans? The nonpartisan Tax Policy Center in Washington put the total at 77.1 percent of all wage earners. In fact, “More than 80 percent of households with incomes between $50,000 and $200,000 would pay higher taxes. Among the households facing higher taxes, the average increase would be $1,635, the policy center said,” according to a Bloomberg News article. Hilariously, the tax burden will rise more for someone making $30,000 a year (1.7 percent) than it does for someone earning $500,000 annually (1.3 percent).
Those of you who were irritated with me all through the fall election can apologize if you like.
But perhaps the hit on your wallet makes you feel foolish enough.
