Obama Peddles Massive Myth
About The Fiscal Cliff

Investors Business Daily, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 12/13/2012 8:11:15 PM

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.

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.

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.

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!

World economic freedom has reached record levels, according to the 2014 Index of Economic Freedom, released Tuesday by the Heritage Foundation and The Wall Street Journal. But after seven straight years of decline, the U.S. has dropped out of the top 10 most economically free countries. For 20 years, the index has measured a nation´s commitment to free enterprise on a scale of 0 to 100 by evaluating 10 categories, including fiscal soundness, government size and property rights. These commitments have powerful effects: Countries achieving higher levels of economic freedom consistently and measurably outperform others in economic growth, long-term prosperity and

On Jan. 28, America will hear the president deliver his annual State of the Union address to Congress. The president will, no doubt, call for a larger role of government in our daily lives. More government is the last thing Americans need. The late Sen. Eugene McCarthy, D-Minn., observed, "The only thing that saves us from the bureaucracy is inefficiency. An efficient bureaucracy is the greatest threat to liberty." He said this in 1979 when the Code of Federal Regulations contained about 30,000 rules. Today, the federal government has more than 180,000 rules. Alexis de Tocqueville warned that the threat to American democracy

States´ Rights: As Republicans watch from the sidelines, pinning their hopes on 2016, the president and his radical troops are storming local school and zoning boards in an unprecedented federal invasion. Last week, after the attorney general and education secretary jointly announced an alarming new witch hunt against local school officials over allegedly racist disciplinary policies, we watched with keen interest Republican reaction. Disappointingly, barely a whimper was registered from the opposition party. Even Fox News punted on the administration´s dangerous anti-discipline crusade, preoccupied as they were handicapping a speculative race, two years away, between Hillary Clinton and Chris Christie.

Socialized Medicine: More than two-thirds of the public don´t think the government can be trusted to run the nation´s health care system successfully. ObamaCare is proving these skeptics right. The public might not agree on much these days, but one thing it overwhelmingly believes is that government is ill-equipped to manage one-sixth of the economy — 67% said so in the January IBD/TIPP poll. This distrust has only gotten worse as the ObamaCare debacle unfolded, climbing 4 points in one month. Even Democrats — at 44%, up from 34% the month before — are increasingly skeptical.

Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates has strongly criticized President Obama´s passion for the nation´s military - contrasting his attitude strongly with that of his predecessor President George W. Bush. In his forthcoming memoir ´Duty´, Gates claims that he never once saw Obama become emotional during a Medal Of Honor ceremony - claiming that his coldness was in stark contrast with Bush, who would regularly ´well up´. Declaring himself to be ´disturbed´ by this ´absence of passion´, Gates goes onto say that the only time he saw his commander-in-chief become animated during his time in the administration was during Obama´s push to repeal

A new book jointly written by The Hill’s Amie Parnes and Politico’s Jonathan Allen, HRC: State Secrets and the Rebirth of Hillary Clinton, details how the Hillary Clinton campaign composed a political hit list of those who had betrayed Clinton in the 2008 presidential campaign and supported Barack Obama instead. The book asserts that the list was finalized in June 2008 after months of keeping score of those who stuck with Hillary and those who stabbed her in the back. The job of finalizing the list fell to Kris Balderston, deputy assistant to Bill Clinton during his presidency and later Hillary’s

Most of the panel agreed that this is not a damaging revelation because it would not be unique to Clinton’s campaign, but one guest said that the “gendered” elements of the coverage of this scandal disturbed her and indicates that “we just don’t know how to deal with gender.” “This doesn’t surprise me in the least,” said Democratic strategist and columnist Zerlina Maxwell of Clinton’s

In 1994 or early 1995 the still unknown Barack Obama sent his editor at Times Books, Henry Ferris, the first two-thirds of his memoir Dreams from My Father. He told Ferris that to complete the book, he had to return to Kenya to do some research. The evidence strongly suggests that Obama went not to Kenya to do that research but to the local library to do some borderline plagiarizing. In the way of background, Barack and Michelle Obama visited Kenya in the summer of 1992 and married in October of that year. There is little dispute about the timing of

Washington - Just days after dismissing two top advisers for their roles in the George Washington Bridge scandal, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is facing questions over the use of Superstorm Sandy relief funds. CNN has learned that federal officials are investigating whether Christie improperly used those relief funds to produce tourism ads that starred him and his family. The news couldn´t come at a worse time for the scandal-plagued Republican, who is facing two probes into whether his staff tied up traffic near the country´s busiest bridge to punish a Democratic mayor who refused to endorse his successful re-election bid.

Before Chris Christie’s first scandal devolves into an obsessive quest to prove who knew what, when, it’s worth pausing to appreciate the wonderful, quintessential New Jerseyness of the incident itself. What happened, roughly, is this. On August 13, Bridget Anne Kelly, one of Christie’s three deputy chiefs of staff, sent an email to David Wildstein, a Christie confidant serving as an executive for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which controls much of the transit infrastructure of northern Jersey. Kelly said that it was “time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee.” Some speculate that the precipitating
