You won't even need to read the article to guess the consequences, but here is the link anyway. (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/02/21/AR2009022100911_pf.html)

Sorry I zoned out when it said he would slash the deficit by half by raising taxes on the rich. My bullshit filter kicked in.

Sending 17,000 new troops to Afghanistan, and he's going to cut funding to it...

So are we just going to replace our troops body armor with target signs?

Good to see the man towing the party line so well. Tax the evil rich and cut the military. Those seem to be the answer to everything.

Who defines what 'rich' means? The tax dodger in charge of Treasury and that means any amount he wants.

To get there, Obama proposes to cut spending and raise taxes


Wow I actually believe half of what the 0 says here!

Every day the definition of rich becomes lower and lower. It started out at $250k, then $150, now $75k cause if you are single and make over 75 big ones, you get a zero tax cut in the Obombanation stimulus plan.

Just watched the Glen Beck show. He had some guy who supposedly studies trends. They're saying (according to the Heritage Society) that we could be up to 80-05% taxes on the higher end to pay only for what we've spent up to this point. Pretty scary stuff.

Maybe SR is right. We should start stocking up food before it takes a bushel basket of money to buy stuff.
