Every tax he wanted since the beginning, all in one stupidly named “Job’s Bill” — or deceptively named, your choice on the name for “income redistribution.”
White House Office of Management and Budget Director Jack Lew outlined President Barack Obama’s plan to pay for his $447 billion jobs plan — mostly through tax increases.
Lew said itemized tax deductions and exemptions for those making more than $200,000, and families earning more than $250,000 would be cut — raising about $400 billion to pay for Obama’s jobs plan over 10 years.
A change to bring more hedge fund earnings under normal tax rules as opposed to carried interest rates would raise another $18 billion.

I wonder, don’t people understand a dollar taken out of the economy by government is a dollar less for growth? Didn’t the failed stimulus teach anyone anything?
Based on the Washington Post’s account, however, the President seems desperate to get the Republicans to agree to raise taxes. Any taxes, on anything, anyone:

Companies, contractors and other interest groups. In other words, an Obama money laundering scheme to rebuild the Democrat party.
At least 3,700 recipients of federal stimulus funds worth more than $24 billion owe the government upwards of $750 million in unpaid federal taxes, a report from the Government Accountability Office found.
Nearly 5% of the 80,000 contractors and other companies that received funds from the stimulus package the government passed in February 2009 have unpaid taxes totaling at least $750 million, GAO said in a report requested by Senators Tom Coburn (R. Okla.), Carl Levin (D. Mich.), Charles Grassley (R., Iowa), Max Baucus (D., Mont.) and Orrin Hatch (R., Utah) for release at a Tuesday hearing of the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations.
Among 15 examples highlighted in the report, a construction company that received more than $1 million in stimulus funds did not pay around $757,000 to the Internal Revenue Service, largely through payroll taxes withheld from employees but never sent to the government. At the same time, its chief executive had “hundreds of thousands of dollars in casino transactions,” according to the report.

The Tennessee State Legislature rejects SB 0529, legislation that would have increased taxes and put job growth and investment in jeopardy by forcing the online company Amazon to collect sales tax. Stopping this over-reaching legislation will save nearly 3,000 full-time jobs and 4,000 seasonal jobs in Tennessee, and allow consumers to make online purchases from Amazon without higher taxes.
“From the beginning, this online sales tax hike was an ill-fated idea,” commented Matt Kibbe, President of FreedomWorks.

Angry? Surprised? And that is on the sales price, not the profit. Isn’t this Marxist crap fun? Pay off the dictators voters, so the dictator can remain in power. Hugo Chavez, Venezuela has come to America. The Spokesman Review reported on this and many of the rest of the hidden taxes.
Remember what Pelosi said: We have to pass the health care bill to find out what’s in it.
Well now you know what was really going on, the destruction of America by these Marxist progressives. It will not stand.

When your boot -lick lapdog media laughs at you …
No taxes on those making less than 250k, down under the bus.
So exactly why didn’t you know Obama was a world class liar before you voted for him? Oh yeah, that’s right, you were so full of Bush hate stoked by the media that you just couldn’t wait. Ever heard the phrase ‘hate blinds’?
Your taxes are going up up and away. They already have if you cared.

How about some ‘easy to understand’ basic economics:
When you want to know how the economy, and America is doing, first thing to do is turn off the state run media, and next put the newspaper in the bottom of the bird cage. The current recession, two consecutive back to back down trends in GDP began Q3 2008. That would be a year and ahalf after the governments’ money was controlled by the Democrat House of Representatives. And this is how it has all came out in the wash … Deficits are now throught he roof as government spending is totally out of control.
Remember when, we had 24 hours to pass porkulus or the world will end? Then out came the charts to panic you into going along, updated below, about how unemployment will be a lot higher if we don’t pass this liberal load of wasteful vote buying and payback pork quick?
The black dots are actually performance numbers, overlaid on Obama’s meaningless scare tactics drivel.
