Obama Peddles Massive Myth
About The Fiscal Cliff

Investors Business Daily, by Staff

Practically every time he opens his mouth these days, President Obama warns that middle-class taxes will automatically go up on Jan. 1 if Congress fails to act on the fiscal cliff before year´s end. "The typical, middle-class family of four will see an income tax hike of around $2,200. How many of you can afford to pay another $2,200 in taxes?" he says. It´s all meant to scare the public into thinking there´s no hope of keeping middle-class taxes down if a deal isn´t worked out before Dec. 31. But Obama is creating a false sense of urgency — and needlessly scaring millions of middle-class families — simply to

Comments:
Hussein was reelected by Low Information Voters. His real agenda is to TAX the Successful. That is the message the Republicans SHOULD be shouting in public and directly to America. Give BETTER than you take.

Obama´s right.

The Democrats won´t be able to help themselves and will look to add more to the tax increase.

The funny thing is the Dems want the Republicans to cave on the top 2% so they can use it against them for "raising taxes" but mainly so they can be restrained from increasing that group to the top 10%.

Boehner needs to clearly state, the added tax revenue from the increasing the top 2% will only cover the current yearly deficit for 1 week. (it´s a great visual for anyone to realize)

And then criticize Harry Reid
"look, Democrat Senator Reid has been leading the Senate for 6 years now, and for the last 4 hasn´t even proposed a budget. I presume he´s afraid to offer his own specifics, beyond taxing small businesses, and doesn´t dare vote on the President´s plan". (in those exact words)

The dirty little secret is that the wealthy do not have enough money to fund his spending addiction.
It´s in the middle class, because there are so many of us.
Obama is coming after us, trust me.

I am sure that Obama is wrong about the taxes going up on the middle class as he and his fellow democrats have always said that the Bush tax cuts went to only the wealthy. So we in the middle have nothing to fear, no tax hike for us. Could I be wrong? Hmmmm.

Someone ought to make a cartoon of Obama threatning to go over the cliff holding hands with the News Media!

Most Americans do not realize the jig is up. You violate the laws of science which ecomoices is one - you are screwed. Once the US bonds are downgraded one little notch the pain begins. the only thing that is holding us from going over the edge is that the US currency is 75% of the worlds reserve.

Obama´s speeches are all about making sure peeps blame the GOP when 70% of workers have a tax increase.

Think about what Obozo is using to calculate who gets the high rate.... Your Net Worth... not your annual salary.

If you have a home only worth $160k, you are not safe; Obozo´s CZars are calculating your homes value as Best Use, not market value.

Obozo will pull off this scam & the GOP will be blamed.

It will be BARRY´s fault if taxes on the middle class revert back. He wants to close more small businesses to prove he´s king. I say let them expire. Vote present if you have to. Then let the multitude on the middle class get up in arms against congress. They´re the ones who voted those worthless demonrats into office.

I think the only thing preventing the WH from imposing their high tax garbage on the middle and lower classes right now is that they haven´t figured out the method to use that leaves their political hides intact after it happens. The media won´t escape the consequences easily either. Good.

Never let a crisis go to waste. Especially when it´s of your own making.

Recall that Obamacare was also in need of being finished "now". When the dust settled, most of the major portions of it would not take effect until 2013 and 2014... after the recoronation, of course.

The problem is, if Obama told the Treasury to leave the tax withholding rates where they are but allowed all the Bush tax cut rates to go up, for a massive amount of people next year there would be no tax refund at all, and in fact most would owe taxes that they would have to make up out of their disposable cash.

A repeat of Henry Paulson´s frightened stare into the camera that gave us TARP. We should have learned that panic produces very bad legislation.

Fool us once ..

(BTW: This is actually a case where it was Bush´s fault. Bush opened the door for NerØbama just as Hoover opened the door for Roosevelt. This is part of the reason that neither the GOP nor the Democratic Party represent my interests anymore.)

Anyone who thinks the fiscal cliff is simply a scare tactic will think otherwise very soon. We just peered over the precipice recently when we asked our accountant to calculate what our net proceeds would be on the sale of our home (like many, we´re looking at escaping to a red state). Our home still has a significant amount of equity even after about a 30% drop in market value from the bubble burst.

So after he calculated the new 3.8% surtax on home sales for Obamacare and the proposed increase in capital gains taxes and the pending increases in state and federal taxes, voila!...we barely net out to zero. The robbery could only be more complete if there was a gun pointed at our heads when we signed the papers.

0blamers whole game is to get the massive tax increase he desires by letting what the democrats call the "Bush tax cuts" expire thus raising everyones taxes take a huge jump.
Rather that proposing this he will do nothing and blame congress for letting it happen.
His base of know nothing voters will fall for it hook line and sinker as their take home pay is decreased. Of course thye large number who pay no taxes will not even notice when they get their welfare checks, food stamps and subsidized housing.

Have the Pubs considered passing an extension of the tax cuts (as current, plus some loopholes capped for high-earners) in the House and sending it to the Senate... I know, I know, the Dems in the Senate wouldn´t pass it, but THEN who would be forcing a tax hike on the middle class?

That bill #21 should have been passed and sent to the senate at least 5 weeks ago and resubmitted daily with loud voices demanding the Dem Senators force Reid to bring it to the floor.
The House and especially the Senate were ruined when power grabbers decided to install committees that were never intended by the Constitution.That Constitution provides for full floor votes up or down one very bill.

The real fiscal cliff will be the complete collapse of the economy if things don´t change soon. As for taxes the real taxes are the quantitative easing which amount to printing money. This dilutes the value of money right in your pocket. The official tax increases are a drop in the bucket compared to this. Diluting the currency is form of default which is not formal default but becomes inevitable at these spending levels. One way or the other government spending costs everybody.

Who is worried? Over what? None of the people who voted for the Democrats and Hussein are worried about taxes! They simply know he´s black and that´s as far as they think. The rest is nothing but hash to them- unrecognizable and unimportant- they don´t even know what the fuss is all about and probably don´t even know there is a fuss. He´s black! That´s that!

Monday night, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes used an essay on Slate about the Bundy Ranch standoff and race as a jumping off point to discuss how this story would be different if rancher Cliven Bundy’s armed supporters were black. “When is it that people take up arms against the federal or state government, point their arms at federal agents and face no consequence for it?” Hayes asked. “The answer is to that is hardly ever.” Hayes went on to imagine how Fox News react to the New Black Panthers if they decided to “greet law enforcement with long guns.” Or what if the

BUNKERVILLE, Nev. — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says “something is going to happen” to get Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy to stop letting his cattle graze on federal land. “It’s obvious that you can’t just walk away from this. And we can speculate all we want to speculate to what’s going to happen next,” Reid told KSNV-TV. “But I don’t think it’s going to be tomorrow that something is going to happen, but something will happen. We are a nation of laws, not of men and women.” Reid called militias staying at Bundy’s Bunkerville ranch “domestic violent terrorist-wannabes.” Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev.,

Attorney General Eric Holder criticized drug sentences doled out under “the old regime” in a video Monday announcing the Obama administration’s “Clemency Project 2014.” “In 2010, President Obama signed the Fair Sentencing Act reducing unfair disparities in sentences imposed on people for offenses involving different forms of cocaine. But there’s still too many people in federal prison who were sentenced under the old regime and who, as a result, will have to spend far more time in prison than they would if sentenced today for exactly the same crime. This is simply not right,” Holder says in the video. President Obama could

He supports medical futility. I oppose it. We went from there.

Corruption: The senator who once guarded funding for a cowboy poetry festival in his home state now thinks those who stand in the way of his family´s increasing fortunes for defending their land are domestic terrorists. Cliven Bundy now finds himself being called a "domestic terrorist" for disputing the payment of grazing fees to a federal government he believes does not or at least should not own the 84% of Nevada that his cattle graze upon. "Those people who hold themselves out to be patriots are not. They´re nothing more than domestic terrorists," said Sen. Harry Reid last Thursday. "I repeat: What

After Breitbart Texas reported on the U.S. Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) intent to seize 90,000 acres belonging to Texas landholders along the Texas/Oklahoma line, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott questioned the BLM’s authority to take such action. “I am about ready,” General Abbott told Breitbart Texas, “to go to go to the Red River and raise a ‘Come and Take It’ flag to tell the feds to stay out of Texas.” Gen.

Although this editorial was written more than 20 years ago, just replace "Clinton" with "Obama," and it all applies perfectly to ObamaCare, from the phony promises to the bogus financing scheme to the massive new bureaucracy. It was this editorial and as many as 100 more like it in IBD that helped spare the nation the tragedy that would have been HillaryCare. The 246-page first draft of President Clinton´s health care reform proposal tells us plenty about the type of people in the White House these days.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
