If you make less than a quarter-million dollars a year, which includes 98 percent of small-business owners, you won’t see your taxes increase one single dime. Not your payroll taxes, not your income taxes, not your capital gains taxes, nothing. - Barry, the liar

President Obama now says he's 'agnostic' on hiking taxes for families below $250K annual income

BY Kenneth R. Bazinet
DAILY NEWS WASHINGTON BUREAU

WASHINGTON - President Obama says he is now "agnostic" about raising taxes on households making under $250,000 a year to help cut budget deficits, signaling a possible retreat from a campaign pledge.

In an interview with Bloomberg BusinessWeek on newsstands tomorrow, Obama said a presidential budget commission needs to look at all options for deficit reduction - including tax increases and cuts in spending on such programs as Social Security and Medicare.

"The whole point of it is to make sure that all ideas are on the table," Obama said. "So what I want to do is to be completely agnostic, in terms of solutions."

Obama repeatedly vowed during the 2008 campaign to spare households earning less than $250,000 a year from tax increases.

When top economic officials last August suggested going back on the pledge, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs quickly reiterated the promise.

Meanwhile, Obama yesterday won over skeptical African-American leaders who agreed to join his effort to get Congress to pass a jobs bill.

At times, black leaders have criticized Obama for failing to address their community's hardships, but they insisted they put all that aside yesterday.

"I think he feels the gravity of the problem, and not exclusively as an African-American problem but as a problem for all people out of work. We need a jobs bill," said the Rev. Al Sharpton, who braved the blizzard here to attend the Oval Office session.

NAACP President Benjamin Jealous compared Senate Republicans with the Dixiecrats who 40 years ago blocked civil rights legislation. "If the Senate Republicans want to kind of keep on using tactics ... from the last century that were used against black people in this century, against working people, then we're going to hold them to account," he said.

Sharpton noted unemployment has hit African-Americans harder, but said the meeting was not a gripe session to complain that Obama has forgotten his own.

"He's focused on lifting everybody equally. There's not going to be an African-American jobs bill," Sharpton said.

>>> WHAAAAATTTTTT???? Are you kidding me? Leave to the idiot sharpton to cry us a river for his people. Once again, us whites get it all don't we?? OMG! Are "his" people ever going to do something for themselves without a handout?? EVER???

It's Sharpton's job to keep "his people" down and on the dole...otherwise he won't have a job. He's slime and a predator. The day "his people" realize what's up, is the day things will turn around...but I'm not holding my breath.

What goes around, comes around...."Read my lips, no new taxes"... and don't forget According to a recent Treasury Department study, Ronald Reagan proposed the largest peacetime tax increase in American history as part of a budget deal to get the federal deficit under control. The Tax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility Act (TEFRA) of 1982 was signed into law on Sept. 3, and most of its provisions took effect on Jan. 1, 1983. http://www.forbes.com/2009/02/26/obama-budget-reagan-clinton-bush-opinions-columnists_higher_taxes.html

Isn't that a bit misleading, just saying that Reagan "proposed the largest peacetime tax increase in American history"?


When you look at the article, it shows that that tax increase was $57 billion, right after he cut taxes by $275 billion.

"Resist, we much. We must, and we much. About that, be committed."
