Obama the Socalist supports Value Added Tax

    "WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama suggested Wednesday that a new value-added tax on Americans is still on the table, seeming to show more openness to the idea than his aides have expressed in recent days."

    For the Obama Supporters... go ahead and justify this one.

    More taxes!  I do believe Obama is the one who promised he wouldn't raise taxes on anyone making under $250,000.  Uh huh.

    Obama the liar.

    Time to start working towards impeaching this two faced lying bum.

    How about we as a country stop shelling out $4 Billion a month to build schools and roads in Afghanistan?

    Why have we given over $114 Billion to Israel?

    On and on.... spend spend spend.  Borrow spend spend spend


    Obama is a bum.  His personal income was $5.5 million last year.  He has no clue what the real working class Americans are going through.

    I think you missed part of the article:



    Gosh what a socialist! Trying to reduce wasteful spending?  No wonder the conservatives hate him!

      What?!  You expect people to actually READ the articles that they use for reference?

      You are obviously an elitist!

      Figure how to cut wasteful spending? He can start by ending the stimulus spending that isn't doing anything. Then he can repeal Health care. After that he can eliminate the IRS and replace it with a VAT or a flat tax. He can cut defense spending in half and bring home all our troops from foreign soil. He could close the department of education, end farm subsidies, privatize social security, end medicare, eliminate the FDA, the FCC, the FTC, the SEC, and the host of other useless federal agencies. He can legalize drugs and eliminate foreign aid. Need I go on????



      Guess what they will recommend, none of what I suggested, except for the VAT tax, in addition to all the taxes we have now! This "commission" will provide the cover for Obama to push that tax. He'll claim it's not his idea but the BIPARTISIAN commission's idea. Brilliant!!!

        He could cut it 75% as far as i'm concerned.  But it would have a big effect on our economy... Government spending creates a lot of jobs for Boeing, Bechtel, Haliburton....

        Ending farm subsidies is not a bad idea, but your other ideas, like:


        bad ideas.  You like having roach parts in your breakfast cereal?  No? You buy your food from a supermarket?  Yes?  Then you need the FDA.

          YES!



        Probably not such a good idea, although we could make foreign aid contingent on such things as environmental laws, labor protection, and human rights.  That will cut most of what we send out.




        We'll just have to see.  Obama promised to cut taxes on the poor and middle class, which he has done, and raise taxes on the rich.  That's why I voted for him, and I don't see any reason why he won't do it.

      Soca or soul calypso is a form of dance music.

      So a Soca list must be like a top ten for Soca songs.

        And Obama is somehow responsible for this list?

          William R. Wilsonposted 6 years ago in reply to this

          I think it's the international bankers who are responsible for the list.  Obama is simply the president who will implement the final solution for that little problem...

    If I had a buck for evert time a wingnut makes a post based on a false premise....

    "on the table'. That's what Obama said. He never said 'supports'. Big difference. You are twisting his words.

    Democrats are not removed from reality. Democrats have historically done more to bring the deficit down than Republicans who historically have run the deficit up. To close the deficit as the economy improves, we will reduce government spending which worked to jump-start the economy. But we will also need to increase revenue, and Obama has been trying for nearly a year to get the GOP to participate in a bipartisan way on a bipartisan panel on the deficit. Only they don't want to participate. They are standing back and taking cheap shots.

    The president is trying to get key jobs in government filled a frickin' YEAR after his innauguration. And the GOP has 'holds' on over 90 appointments. This is pure obstructionism.

    And this post is a deliberate distortion of the truth.

      To allay everyone's fears, the POTUS should just come out and say he will not approve VAT because that would violate one of his major campaign promises. Remember what happened to Daddy Bush when he lied about no new taxes!

      Once the protesters (domestic terrorists) are rounded up in encampments I see no reason why the government would or could not take all their property from them for their seditious behaviour.

    Yeah--I've heard the impeachment talk too. "We don't have the votes for it now, but we will come November"...
    AS IF.
    Rep Kucinich had 35 articles of impeachment drawn up against YOU KNOW WHO'S...both of them, and these clowns couldn't be bothered.
    They are the frauds.

    Since the VAT is a conservative idea in the first place!
    That and the flat tax...

    And it is 101 jobs that they're holding up with their childish behavior.
    What a waste of $176,000 a year.

    The republicans wanted VAT to REPLACE income tax, not have it in addition to income tax. Big difference!
