Bloomberg: Obama open to cutting Social Security, hiking taxes on middle class
Well there it is as predicted. h/t AceHQ
President Barack Obama said he is “agnostic” about raising taxes on households making less than $250,000 as part of a broad effort to rein in the budget deficit.Obama, in a Feb. 9 Oval Office interview, said that a presidential commission on the budget needs to consider all options for reducing the deficit, including tax increases and cuts in spending on entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare.
“The whole point of it is to make sure that all ideas are on the table,” the president said in the interview with Bloomberg BusinessWeek, which will appear on newsstands Friday. “So what I want to do is to be completely agnostic, in terms of solutions.”
As I have been saying since 2007, Obama is the ‘Democrat’ selected to cut Social Security and tax the middle class into oblivion. All the Obots who dedicated webpages to my comments in this regard can cram it like the taxes and benefit cuts we are about to get…frakkers…
…“What I can’t do is to set the thing up where a whole bunch of things are off the table,” Obama said. “Some would say we can’t look at entitlements. There are going to be some that say we can’t look at taxes, and pretty soon, you just can’t solve the problem.”…
Yeah! if you said no taxes on the middle class and no Social Security benefit cuts for the middle class then ‘Pretty soon’ you would sound like a free market, moderate Democrat and we can’t have that can we? Thanks again to the cabal of dunces in the Dem leadership who selected Obama, good luck getting a majority ever, ever, ever, ever again.
If this fool would let the economy GROW we would get out of this hole. Big Dawg cut taxes and GREW revenue!!!! When he increased taxes we were not in a recession, no one in their right mind would do that. Even in his ‘left’ mind Big Dawg didnt do that. My Gawd are these Obama people blinded by their determination to be the anti-Clinton anti-Bush or what?!
Glenn at Instapundit snags one of the hundreds of times Obama lied like a rug on video for us:
