Tax Day

One thing is certain: Obama loves taxing the American people.

"Tax Man" Obama Has Sought 442 Tax Hikes

According to a new report, President Obama has sought 442 tax increases since taking office, though most have died because of congressional opposition.

Having included 93 new taxes in his fiscal 2015 budget, the anti-tax Americans for Tax Reform reviewed his proposals since his 2009 Inauguration to determine just how tax-friendly the president has been. Their conclusion: He's very friendly.

"History tells us what Obama was able to do. This list reminds us of what Obama wanted to do," said Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform.

The group's list of 442 tax proposals notes that he did sign 20 tax increases into Obamacare and a tobacco tax approved soon after he entered office. For the Obamacare taxes, the net tax hike over the next decade is at least $1 trillion, said the group.
Yikes! 442!

Most of Obama's 442 tax hikes died because of congressional opposition.

Thank you, Congress!

Yes, of course, they're racists for standing in opposition to Obama's policies. But they helped tax-paying Americans.

Thank you, Congress!

Remember this tweet from the White House, 2012?

"Happy Tax Day"?

What's happy about it?

The government confiscating my money isn't something I celebrate.
