Obama wants Americans to tweet.
It is amazing that the president of the United States is asking citizens to go on Twitter and Facebook. He's promoting a hashtag!
That's part of his plan.
OBAMA: So today, I'm asking Congress to listen to the people who sent us here to serve. I'm asking Americans all across the country to make your voice heard. Tell members of Congress what a $2,000 tax hike would mean to you. Call your members of Congress, write them an email, post it on their Facebook walls. You can tweet it using the hashtag 'My2K.'Is Obama really such a dunce when it comes to the economy?
Why doesn't he tell Americans the truth?
Obama's plan to tax the "rich" would be effective, but not for long.
President Barack Obama has proposed raising taxes on the rich to put America's fiscal house in order, but critics say federal spending is so massive that the wealthy don't have enough money to cover the nation's unprecedented debt.This is all so depressing.
In an interview with MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell, Rep. Tom Price (R-GA) said President Barack Obama's plan to raise taxes on the wealthy would only generate enough revenue to fund the federal government for eight days.
"The president’s plan to increase taxes on the upper two percent covers the spending by this federal government not for eight years, not for eight months, not for eight weeks but for eight days. Eight days only," said Mr. Price. "It’s not a real solution. So, again, I’m puzzled by an administration that seems to be more interested in raising tax rates than in gaining economic vitality."
The problem is that the rich don't have enough money to put so much as a dent in America's $16 trillion national debt. "If the IRS grabbed 100 percent of income over $1 million, the take would be just $616 billion," writes John Stossel. "That’s only a third of this year’s deficit. Our national debt would continue to explode."
Still, Mr. Obama's supporters persist in proposing tax hikes on the wealthy.
Obama is selling a plan that would solve our problems for just EIGHT DAYS?
We're witnessing the country commit suicide. Obama is overseeing its self destruction.
I certainly don't trust Obama to be responsible.
I no longer trust the majority of the American people to behave responsibly. Most will mooch. Why bother working?
Taxing the "rich" isn't a solution at all, but Obama wants us to tell our representatives in Congress to do it anyway.
