Obama Voters Furious
About Tax Hikes

Breitbart´s Big Government, by William Bigelow

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/9/2013 3:01:10 PM

Now, now. Calm down. Yes, I know you voted for Obama, but didn’t you ever stop to think that he’d tax you, too? You didn’t? Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. Disillusioned Obama voters are waking up to face the reality that Obama didn’t exempt them in his quest to steal money from all Americans to pay for his expanding government. It turns out that those making $30,000 a year will pay more taxes than those making $500,000 because of the deal Obama pushed for after the fiscal cliff debacle. Obama voters, the joke’s on you. Oh, one other little tidbit.

Comments:
I have no sympathy whatsoever for these morons. It is because of them we are in the disastrous situation we are in.

My 30 year old nephews said they voted for Obama because of social issues and the tear down of Romney by the Obama campaign. Other than that, they do not agree with the growing welfare state. I have been laughing all weEk about two things: SS tax hikes hitting the average person and their noticing of it; and, that Obamacare has raised everybody´s health care premiums.
YOU VOTED FOR HIM. LIVE WITH IT.

Clearly, no patriots among this disgruntled bunch. How quickly they forget what the Vice President (that they also voted for) said about it being their "patriotic duty" to pay more.

Unfortunately, those in the entitlement class aren´t feeling the pain yet. The good news is that they will through inflation but again, that will be Bush´s fault. Idiots all.

The young people also think they´ll be forgiven all of their student loans by their Obama votes. Just wait until they get those shrunken paychecks when they get out of college and join the real world. Those freebies will have to be paid by someone. Usually someone with a job, to cover those who can´t or won´t work.

I am just mildly inconvenienced by this. The Obama voters are the ones who think McDonald´s is the place for dinner every other night, and can´t keep to a food budget because they refuse to shop sales and learn how to cook.

Conservatives can take care of themselves. I will enjoy watching the squalling liberals crash and burn.

Doesn´t matter. Most of these dimwits will swallow the tripe that it is the fault of Bush or Boehner or republicans in general since their boy didn´t get as much from the evil rich as he initially wanted. The "news" organizations will be happy to do their part to fuel that general belief.

Oh no no no - this is what I heard my son wailing this morning (my 29 year old very liberal son):

"this is all Boehner´s fault he couldn´t even get his own caucus together to vote against this stuff".

I swear to God that happened this morning. So it´s the conservatives fault because we didn´t save them from themselves.

I of course laughed out loud. Love my son but oy vey!

A contestant named Julian from Indiana University must be feeling pretty stupid right about now. He had the chance to win $1 million, had the puzzle fully solved, and then lost because he pronounced Achilles like “A-chill-us.” Because of that mistake, the show decided not to give him the victory and instead, one of the other contestants who know the “mythological hero” got the chance to steal and did. (To win the full $1 million he would have had to overcome some other hurdles as well.) Watch video below: Miraculously, Julian got a second chance later in the show, this time

Was Cher turning back time this week, or was the veteran singer trying to emulate a certain shock performer? The 67 year-old Oscar winner took the stage in Boston Thursday and proceeded to tear through a number of colorful costume changes. One ensemble found the star sporting the kind of outfit Miley Cyrus has been (barely) wearing for the past few months on her Bangerz tour. The ever-youthful singer endured six costume changes during the aptly-named Dressed To Kill tour, including a diamond-encrusted fringed dress with nipple pasties. It´s getting harder for established stars like Cher and Madonna to keep up with their envelope

The Washington Post has an outrageous story about how the Treasury Department is going after thousands of Americans to collect on debts — which may not have ever been real debts — it says deceased family members owed the government. A few weeks ago, with no notice, the U.S. government intercepted Mary Grice’s tax refunds from both the IRS and the state of Maryland. Grice had no idea that Uncle Sam had seized her money until some days later, when she got a letter saying that her refund had gone to satisfy an old debt to the government — a very old debt. When Grice was 4, back in 1960, her father died,

Bob Beckel just went on a rant against CAIR, the Council on American Islamic Relations, on Fox’s The Five. Beckel accused CAIR of lacking “guts” in not standing up for Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s rights after Brandeis University shamefully rescinded an honorary degree that it had planned to give her. Brandeis made that decision under pressure from Muslim students, and ultimately CAIR itself, after those groups accused Ali of being anti-Muslim. Ali is anti-Muslim, but with good reason. She was mutilated as a young girl, and then forced into marrying a close relative by her family in Somalia. She escaped to

President Obama labeled complaints about voter fraud “bogus” and accused Republicans of cynically trying to prevent Americans from accessing the polls in a fiery speech Friday at a civil rights forum hosted by Al Sharpton. Obama argued that attempts in some states to impose new voter identification restrictions were actually efforts by Republicans to make “it harder, not easier to vote.” And the president said that while voter fraud should be prevented, it rarely occurred. “So let´s be clear, the real voter fraud is the people who try to deny our rights by making bogus arguments about voter fraud,” Obama said.

A top building trades union is launching a midterm-election assault on House Democrats who oppose construction of the Keystone XL oil pipeline. A letter distributed Friday by the Laborers´ International Union of North America (LIUNA) to the districts of 27 House Democrats calls for union members to make sure their representative "feels the power and the fury of LIUNA this November." Their crime: signing a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry last month urging him to reject Keystone, which would carry oil sands from Canada to Gulf Coast refineries.

Holder, one of the more important revelations was the exposure of exactly how much literal contempt Mr. Holder actually holds for the American people.

Louie Gohmert referenced Mr. Holder being sanctioned for contempt of Congress two years ago. Check out their exchange: Mr. Gohmert: ” I still do not understand why your department can provide documents to terrorists’ lawyers, and many of them to four out of

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Big Government: As students flood Twitter with images of inedible slop, it´s clear that Michelle Obama´s government school lunch revamp is a costly failure. It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes. The $12 billion federal student lunch program, which serves 30.7 million kids, is losing participants fast — more than a million just last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report. The reason: the first lady´s Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act, an act that has accomplished exactly the opposite of what it claimed it would — leaving hungry, angry, disgusted kids and dumpsters full of wasted
