Obama Says “Nobody’s Talking About Increasing Taxes” …Then 9 Minutes Later Proposes Increasing ‘Revenues’ (Taxes)

During his press conference today Barack Obama told reporters that nobody’s talking about increasing taxes:

11:22 a.m. ET – @LisaDCNN: OBAMA-TAXES: Nobody has talked about increasing taxes now or next yr. We have talked about closing loopholes in 2013.

Then 9 minutes later told reporters that we need to increase revenues (taxes):

11:31 a.m. ET – “It is hard to persuade people to do hard stuff that includes trimming benefits and increasing revenues” Obama said. “Reason we have a problem now is people keep avoiding hard things.”

Hey… Somebody has to pay off his debt!
Barack Obama increased the national debt by over $3 trillion in just over 2 years.
Obama tripled the deficit in one year with his failed stimulus plan.

The Obama deficit this year may reach $1.65 trillion. (The Captain’s Comments)

Barack Obama and Democrats also added over One Trillion Dollars to the Federal Budget in the last 4 years.

That’s at least a 30% increase in federal spending in just 3 years.

For the record… The only reason there is not an agreement already is because Obama and democrats insist on increasing taxes.

    Obviously, Teh Won is counting on everyone in the US having ADD, and therefore, expects that the collective “we” stopped listening after he said the words “not increasing taxes.”

    Gotta destroy the village in order to save it

    “Reason we have a problem now is people keep avoiding hard things.”

    What an intellect, and so smooth and refined.

    #1 -BINGO. We have a winner! He thinks he’s a genius, so it follows that we are too stupid to know a lie when we hear one. Sadly, some of us are, but not all of us. Not yet at least.

    Any fool who listens to this clown for more than five minutes can tell that he’s a compulsive liar, and it’s real easy to tell when the lying starts … when you see his lips start moving, he’s lying.

    If the MSM would get busy, do their JOB, and expose his involvement in Fast and Furious, we could be rid of this criminal in a few days. I’m not holding my breath though, and that makes them complicit. When we take this government back, there needs to be hell to pay for that.

    Hello? Hello!! The 800+billion stimulus SPENDING has been added to the base line budget each year since 09. Wanna cut “spending” start there. Now wasn’t that easy.

    Traitor-Bama – we need a friggin’ BUDGET!

    Raising revenues could mean selling government land or maybe timber from national forests or oil from ANWR. But not in the Marxist lexicon of King Putt.

  • jony101

    Its time they start firing all government workers except military an essential personnel. We don’t need 100,000 of overpaid paper pushers. senators don’t need an army of staff overpaid personnel.

    I can’t even stand to look or listen to the anamoly.

    I’m sure we all know how to determine when Obama is lying. (Hint: it’s that “lips moving” thing.) My only fear is that it applies equally well to Boehner.

    Don’t forget this gem Jim…

    “We need to get this deal done so we can “make the investments” necessary to WTF”…

    Classic big government proglodyte bull crap, “we’ll give you what you want with one hand and stab you in the back with the other because we know what’s best for you…”

    He said at one point “the American people don’t really care about or understand the ins and outs of treasury auctions, we get paid to worry about it for them so they don’t have to…”

    The arrogant S.O.B. commie prick actually believes that Americans are as dumb and gullible as the Euro-peons!

  • FurryGuyJeans

    So what is the ROI (return on investment) the government expects for increasing the revenue stream (taxes)?

  • Bunni

    What a disgusting liar! He really looks desperate & strung out.
    He can go eat ****….hint, it’s NOT peas!

    The results of elections held for most of the 20th and 21st centuries gives credence to that belief. The simple fact that Dems/Leftists/Progs hold any political power shows the seductiveness of creeping Socialism that is poisoning the Republic.

    Well, that only slightly exceeds the average “shelf life/expiration date” for most the O-Zone man’s promises.

    Pay no attention to the empty suit behind the curtain….

  • FurryGuyJeans

    Barry took a whole nine minutes to contradict himself.

    That is a new record even given he believes Americans are too enraptured with American Idol or the like to pay any attention to what he has to say.

  • A_Nonny_Mouse

    You’re talking about DEMOCRATS here: the party of “words mean whatever I want them to mean”.

    Thus: taxes are completely, entirely, utterly different from “government revenue”. Really. Trust us, we’re professionals! And we have credentials! And you backwater yahoos just don’t understand that we, your betters, have magnificent plans for your “revenue”. So- start cooperating – NOW.

  • jmm

    Let us play a game. Try to count all the times that a lib has over the last several weeks talk about raising “revenues, fees and taxes”. That would be a fun ad to play over and over again. “No one is talking about raising taxes, except me, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Chuck Schumer, Charlie Rangel etc”. What an idiot.
