Obama the Senator, against raising the debt ceiling. Obama the president, FOR.
In 2011, Obama the President said, ” “What we said was give us $1.2 trillion in additional revenues, which could be accomplished without hiking taxes — tax rates — but could simply be accomplished by eliminating loopholes, eliminating some deductions and engaging in a tax reform process that could have lowered rates generally while broadening the base.”
In 2012, the Congress presents him with that same plan, and Jim Carney, Obama spokesperson said, “It’s a couple sentences — it’s not a plan to say that we’re going to magically increase revenues through loophole closures and deduction caps with not a single element of specificity. So we don’t know who pays, we don’t know what we’re talking about in terms of actual legislation to increase revenues. It’s magic beans and fairy dust.”
You can’t reason with that.
Not to mention, how can you talk the wealth and possible economic fall of a nation with a man who meets with Al Sharpton, Lawrence O’Donnell, Rachel Maddow and
left-wing hate-monger Ed Scultz – to discuss finances?
Al Sharpton, like a great deal of other Obama friends, can’t PAY HIS TAXES!
The Rev. Al Sharpton, who has vowed to clean up his fiscal house, has a new tax lien to pay.
Sharpton owes $359,973 to the IRS for 2009 personal income tax, according to documents on file with the city.
Public records show he owes a total of $3.7 million in city, state and federal taxes, including penalties, dating to 2002. But Sharpton’s spokeswoman, Rachel Noerdlinger, said that he had paid back “well over seven figures” as part of agreements with the state and IRS and that the liens remained on the books as “a matter of bureaucracy.”
Sharpton made $250,000 as head of the nonprofit National Action Network in 2009, a year that ended with the group owing $1.1 million in taxes and having just $36,397 cash on hand.
The organization also pays for first-class or charter travel for Sharpton and other NAN staff, according to its 2009 tax return. Noerdlinger declined to say for whom.
These bozos want to ROB US BLIND, and they can’t even do their legal obligations. The other people on that meeting list are socialists and we see in Europe how well socialism is doing.
“Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.”
